im new to these particular forums and the world of BIOS upgrades. I require an updated BIOS for my mainboard and the manufacturers site isnt much help. I have a chaintech CT-7AJA, but when i search the site for a BIOS it gives me BIOS's for 7AJA2 or 7AJA D. are these compatible with my board? Is it just a dieference in name as it is a diferent file? If i cant ind a n updated BIOS on the website where can i get one from?
Thnaks alot

You'll need the 7AJA0 BIOS.
Read this, it applies to all Chaintech boards:

There are a number of 7AJA0 ones though. Ie. 7AJA0 c 7AJA0 D etc.Do you think the highest letter will be the newest?

Just to avoid any mistakes, access the product page:
Once there, click on "Latest BIOS".
Then, you'll be given a short list of updates, all of which are for your board.
I'd select the "7AJA0/100 Version:8 BIOS".

The /100 might just mean that from a certain motherboard revision and on, the board properly supports UDMA100, but the BIOS file is the same for both.

Yeah that seemed to work, no problems at all and a mild performance boost.
Thanks again m8
