The bios can be updated from Windows automatically from site.
Maybe if I put windows on it I can find more details but not commit update to bios.

You can do the BIOS update following these instructions : http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1661637

The BIOS file provided in the first post was modified by Samisnake so you do not need NullCPUPowerManagement.kext nor a patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. The stock AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext will work just fine with two states and sleep will work. My rig still running strong.

Glad to hear your rig is still running strong.
I saw an ad recently for a H67s retailer and they did list your processor as working.
Your temps are definitely good.

I saw in Official Thread for 10.7.4 update that a Foxconn got through update okay.

I do not trust that Foxconn page that shows compatibility with Ivy and HD4000.
This is boilerplate they are sticking in several places on site.
I did a board compare with Z77 and no Ivy bridge for H67S.

I am so used to looking at Foxconn bios downloads That I missed something.
When I said support for Ivy Bridge was dubious I was wrong.

Foxconn has drivers for windows for Ivy Bridge.
No bios update though, maybe it is not needed.

I haven't made my mind up on upgrade path.
Get a 2105 or Ivy Bridge or start over.

Just upgraded to 10.7.4 with SSDT and the Patched sound kext now included in MB. MSR dumper still reports only two Pstates. I think one needs to get the cpu info from the SSDT into the DSDT just like ASUS boards do. I will try and let you know if successful.

Thanks Khan !
I am holding off till Mountain Lion to avoid the pstates problem,but I think it might
still be there. So I better do some closer reading.
Its good to know new MB sound kext works fine.
