    First off newbie to the group. I bought an NG R7800 last week and set it up. FW is at 1.0.2.46 and was going to update it but read there are issues with it. I also saw there is a hot fix 1.0.2.63 but no mention of was it fixes. I've considered doing a custom FW but need information on the Voxel FW. I see there are multiple files, do I need to install them all or just the R7800 V1.0.2.67?

    For voxel's I just installed the firmware file like you listed..im on .66 and have no issues. But I dont do anything advanced.

    If you go with stock .. You just purchased it so you have 90 days of support to report an issue and work a support case...
