    Sounds great.. maybe you have come across something. Yes, the CPU
    Disconnect function arrived in your BIOS in revision of 2003/03/27
    "6.Adds"CPU Disconnect Function" to adjust C1 disconnects. The Chipset
    does not support C2 disconnect; thus, disable C2 function."

    For me though.. Im on an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe v2 BIOS 1007. From what I can
    see the CPU Disconnect isnt even in the Uber BIOS 1007 for this ASUS
    that has been discussed.
