In case you need it PM me. There is a HUGE difference in performance between 3.10/3.13 and 3.14 My performance tripled and my CPU usage went down from 60+ all the time to nearly 0
I have a working 3.14 bios file. Send me a PM with a valid email address and I send you the bios. Do NOT post your email address out in the open, some spambots are scanning the forum. I've fixed all the other email address links.
Winflash from esupport works, the bflash was reported not to work in one case so far:

If the bflash on the esupport site does not work for whatever reason use a more recent award flasher (I've been reported version 8.33 found on the MSI website works ok).
- This bios stops your CPU getting pegged at 100% (or 50% if dual-core).
- It stops your IDE from going beserk. The problem might be this board comes in 2 flavours, one with the SB400 southbridge and one with the SB450 southbridge. If you load the 3.13 bios on the SB450 southbridge board, all sorts of weird things happen.
- The new unknown device can be fixed by the AMD Away driver. AMD has released a null driver to make this go away, and it is available for download from MSI.

Read the readme file in the download and follow the easy directions. It solved the problem entirely. No more unknown device and one new device "AMD Away" in System Devices.
The good thing is that it's a null driver--doesn't do anything, just makes the unknown device go away.
- If you press F11 instead of F1 the bios setup gives you more options for turning off the fan monitor. Example press f11 then go to advanced then scroll down to hardware monitor.
