    Hello to everyone. I own an ASUS M3N78 motherboard with the latest official BIOS 0902. I recently bought and installed an AMD Phenom II X4 955 Rev.C3, but CPU-Z shows insane low speed information, even if C1E and Cool 'n Quiet are DISABLED in BIOS.


    This BIOS is an AMI BIOS and has AGESA 3.7.0.0, and I think that is the fault of the problem, because this motherboard supports AM3 CPU's up to 140 W. So, please, can someone teach me how to update this BIOS with AGESA 3.7.0.1 or 3.7.1.0 (I guess 3.7.0.1 would be all right), or if time permits to make an update for me.
    I learned that the AGESA module is contained inside the 1b module, and may be harder to update.
    I will attach the latest official BIOS version if someone wants to have a look at it.


    EDIT:
    I found a similar motherboard (M3N78-VM) that uses the same chipset and components as mine, and has a few BIOS'es with AGESA updated to 3.7.0.1. The latest version is 1801. Maybe AGESA (from 1b module) can be extracted and replaced into my BIOS.


    I would be really gratefull. Thank you very much for reading.

    Problem solved.
    After a few arguing mails with an ASUS support guy, he decided to send me an updated BIOS, even if in the begining of the disscution he said that he can't do anything about it because this motherboard is out of support.

    The tech support guy sent me an archive and tagged it as BETA, but only in the archive name. The BIOS itself is not tagged as Beta and can be used without any problems.

    Here it is:
