The BIOS version usually shows up during the boot process or on the first page of the BIOS. You may also use CPUz to find out the BIOS version and post the screenshot here.

@littlelion Duron 1.1ghz socket 462 po, My old gaming rig, but now is Torrent gig na lang

littlelion 08-07-2012 05:36 PM

Rule number three states:

"To submit an entry, the participant must post a photo of his or her ECS motherboard with a creative caption on the official ‘Old for Gold’ thread."

In the case in which the oldest motherboards that emerged are of the same model and have the same date of purchase, we will weigh them according to the creativity of the caption.

A CPU-Z validation + Any proof of the motherboard's age would be better.

It just so happens that the motherboard I'm using for my case study is an old ECS P4VMM2 (V3.1)
If you can notice, I'm using a customized AMD heatsink for this socket 478 mobo. :)

So here is my entry, my old reliable motherboard: http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Pro...uID=24&LanID=0

Thanks for updating the post! We assume that the P6VXM2 is your official entry, considering that it's the one that has CPUz screenshots, right?

yup thats a good point, but take note, there's a sticker on the Bios with Original version and Rev. no for model and Bios Verification ^_^

that's why the company or the Manufacturer can trace if you updated/downgraded the Bios or Not
