Device manager saying its an 8700. But you're right, better not trying around and ending up with a bricked device.

Flashing the old BIOS restores the advanced settings, yes. Never had a problem doing that.

Yes, you can flash the old bios on the new revision win.

I should receive the new revisions in my shop as well in about 1 - 2 weeks.
I'll do a comparison (speed, temperature, DPad, keyboard, etc.) video as soon as I have them.

And let you know what the best option is (old revision, new revision or old revision with the new dpad mat)

So how is the temperature in the new revision? Has cooling been improved?
