Hi, does anyone know the latest BIOS version number for the DF45FC motherboard?  Also, if anyone knows where to get the latest version or if they could e-mail it to me I'd be very grateful.

Many thanks!!

The latest bios is 0135.  I have attached it.

The release notes are here:

Why do you think you need a bios update?

Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly.  I've been reading that the latest update will give the board the ability to take 8GB RAM instead of 4GB, although I'm very dubious of this claim.  Any clarification would be appreciated.

Thanks again

If that were the case, the ARK information for the board would have been updated. Still, you can try...

I found this, on pages 6 and 8:

Specification Update for the Intel® Desktop Board DG45FC

Does this apply to all boards or just ones with a BIOS update?

Interesting! I wonder why they didn't update ARK. Looks like you need at least BIOS 127 for this support. If you are already at 127 or later, you should be able to test with the larger DIMMs without the upgrade. Regardless, upgrading all the way to the latest (135) is always the best thing to do in my mind.
