I have a Giga-byte mobo and according to the label on the mobo itself (when opening the casing) the exact model and version is GA-8IPE1000, it is not GA-8IPE1000 rev.x, GA-8IPE1000 pro.....etc. Just GA-8IPE1000. I even used to see it in the giga-byte website when looking for bios update. It used to appear in the list as follows
GA-8IPE1000 revision 1
GA-8IPE1000 revision 2
GA-8IPE1000 revision 3
GA-8IPE1000 Pro 1
GA-8IPE1000 Pro 2
The initial bios version according to the startup screen was FB, but when I looked in the bios update page under GA-8IPE1000 they had version F8 and F9 at that time, so I figured it rather reads F8. Overtime I updated from F9 through F11.
The next time I checked for bios update the list appeared as before except for my GA-8IPE1000 model no longer in the list!!
Wierd, even if discontinued knowing giga-byte they wouldn't halt bios or driver updates unless perhaps the GA-8IPE1000 is the same as revision 1. Any ideas how I can tell the revision, the startup screen only shows current bios version which is now F11 and the mobo manual refers to the GA-8IPE1000 series.
Also doesn't any know where in www.giga-byte.com
I can get the latest version of @bios program (the one that comes with mobo cd), it is there somewhere but the website is huge, searching for is was like looking for a needle in a haystack
