    :hi2: Hi,

    I just got an EP121 that was loaded with Windows 8 Pro. I think it is going to be a really great tablet and have gotten the back light working properly and all of the drivers loaded and working but the fans continue to run full speed. I can't see any damage to the thermal sensor cable or its attachment mechanism. Having bought it with Win 8 and it having Bios 501 v1930, I thought that flashing Bios 701 might take care of the fan noise. Problem is that I installed the v1.0.0002 ATK package but still get the error trying to install WinFlash. So, how might I get WinFlash installed and flash the 701 Bios, and if Bios 701 doesn't quiet down the fans then what can be done? I would think there must be some program like the Asus FAN Xpert that can control the fans speed based on cpu core temps.

    Thanks.

    PS: Is a screen protector needed or a just a waste of time and money?

    still trying to find a new home for these files..not too many file sharing sites free. I don't want it in torrent..far too insecure..

    Its just that i use Corel Painter and ZBrush on my Slate121 which are supergreat programs for a tablet i think but it does get laggy at the moment.
    With more power it could probably work fine. My Desktop graphic performance is at 2.8 points and my processor at 3.1 points on windows experience index.
    I use Windows 8 pro x64. So if your Bios is really that great, please let me have it. ^^
    It would be very much apprecciated.

    Many thanks CF77. Upgraded to your Bios with WinFlash Utility. Had to run it in CMD Console with "/nodate" added, since i already had the "newer" bios installed.
    No Problems so far.
    CPU Performance jumped from 2.7 to 5.7. AMAZING!
    Yet my GPU performance still sits at 3.2. Any way to boost that up?
