Welcome to the motherboards.org...

Evasive is your man here... Bear in mind Chaintech went out of business a few years back...

It is exactly like mine. Isn't there newer?

I made the copies in 2006 so I am pretty sure they never released any newer version. Some things can still be enhanced/changed in existing bios files, so again, what are you hoping to get from a bios update for this board?

There's no monitoring hardware on the board, the chipset is from 10 years ago, I suggest you start looking for a new board if you want to get more life out of this CPU/memory. It's not the bios that is limiting you here...

The real solution is of course buying a new system from scratch...

You might want to check this site.. http://www.motherboard.cz/driver/chaintech.htm
but I found no newer BIOS versions than what you have. I have a Chaintech 848P (Socket 478 with P4/800) that still works great, but the BIOS is only 02/2004.
Many manufacturers have 'folded' or 'faded' due to economic problems. Some had good products, and will be missed.. such as the recent news about the Kodak enterprise going into bankruptcy proceedings.

Hmmm... I have no problem. Here is the 'parent' link.. http://www.motherboard.cz/
Maybe a firewall restriction for some sites?
