hello.. question???
if i use q-flash from a usb stick, does the usb stick have to empty apart from the bios? i have borrowed a usb stick from work as i want to flash the bios, problem is it's taking a looooong time deleting the stuff since it's 1.0 and 8GB of documents... i have already backed up the documents but erasing them is hell!!
so question is- can i just dump the Bios in there and flash away? or could i screw something up by doing so?
btw.. i started deleting 15 min ago and i have approximately. 1h to go frown.gif

You can format that drive, its way much faster than delete every file.

ok, I got my UD3 and cant get windows to install on raid 0 to save my life. im running F2... would F3b help me out? (if so can someone send that my way? if at all possible)

windows install looks healthy and everything seems great... then last step on the install the screen goes black (as if it where installing the video driver) but never comes back up and hdd activity comes to a halt soon after.... will stay that way forever...

any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks again guys!


EDIT: Little more info... F3 500gb drives, When plugged in to the sata headers they will both click click drop head etc... power off, pull sata cables, power up... they spin up fine no click. these drives are fairly new and have run fine in raid 0 on a nvidia 750a board for awhile... whats the deal here?

im begining to think that the amd controller killed my drives!

EDIT EDIT!: Found the F3b bios! Loaded up and the damn thing installed... i havnt turned my computer off yet to see if my hard drive will flip out again... BUT they both have spit SMART errors all over the place. But so far windows is installed and updating...

Got my UD5, am I crazy or can you not install a hyper 212+ onto it without obstructing 2 of the ram slots? I spent a half an hour trying to get it onto the mobo, and once I got it onto it I noticed it was obstructing 2 of the ram slots. Am I just doing it wrong?

You are right! the 912 isn't tall enough to put ram next to it in this board. However you can try to put the fan in a higher position in order to allow some space under.

They've said the aluminum heatsink will be black anodized too and that if you should want to water cool the south bridge, they will have compatible blocks for that.

Link here.


Looks awesome, cant wait!

I wish it were that easy, the only way I was able to get it to fit was to have it horizontal in my case, so that the side of the huge metal part was over the ram slots, not the fan. It didn't seem possible to put it vertically, but I was getting irritated at the time. Am I just crazy?
