    What's the difference between the Pro and non-Pro versions?
    The fact that you could POST and boot using the "wrong" BIOS would indicate that they are not that far apart.

    I've never tried using the "wrong" BIOS so I have no idea what the long term effects might be.

    Ive looked into it and the only diffrent between the 2 boards is that the non pro has only 2 1.1 USB and the pro has 6 usb 1.1 and 4 usb 2.0 and the color is diffrent. Everything else it absolutly identical, like the chipset etc. But what really stumps me is how i gained 200 mb/s on aida32's benchmarks.
