Up to this point, I like the 0207 better than 0206 although the fan noise is now more frequent. I like to keep the temp on the cpu lower to increase reliablity and the fan noise isn't really annoying at 3000RPM-3600RPM. Also 0206 (I think) reports inaccurate CPU temperatures. It all of a sudden reports 200's degree CELSIUS abruptly, which I know is impossible, then it goes back down after a few seconds. Also, if I stress the CPU to 100% usage on full speed, I get inaccurate temperature readings of high 80's to low 90's which again I do not think it is that high. (I confirmed by touching the heat sink without burning myself) So up till now, 0205 and 0207 are the best BIOS. 0205 gives you quietness and 0207 gives coolness. 0206 just gives me annoyance becasue of the frequent popup of Asus Probe telling me that the CPU is overheated while it's not.
