    Apparently there ist a Firmware file numbered 1.08 in to be found in https://udoo.org/download/files/UDOO_BOLT/UEFI_update/ : UDOOBOLT_C40_UEFI_Update_rel108.zip

    Is there any release information I somehow might have missed?
    Where would I find the official instructions for flashing the BIOS?

    Any help appreciated!

    Also, the file "APN - BIOS programming using AFU rel1.4.pdf" inside the archive documents the installation

    Applied the update and at first after reboot thought I'd bricked it. But then after another reset Windows came back up again. Apparently the annoying fan noise problem has been solved. Wheee!
    Will keep an eye on temperatures. So far CPU idles at 50°C, Mem at 40°C and m.2 SSD at 50°C. Fan on low is audible when one is near the machine, but not disturbing or annoying any more.
    Hav not yet put the system under stress. Will do later.

    Can you copy new fan default settings (ac0/ac1/hyseresis and others) on 1.08? Thanks!

    Thank you kindly for the link. I wasn't aware of the repo.

    As to the settings, it's interesting that they 'kick-in' fan only after temperature grows pass 75 (70+hist). Seems quite high.
