Need a new AMD AM3+ Board - Page 2

post #11 of 14
That... doesn't sound right...

I don't know of ANY bios you cant flash from the bios itself.

Simple solution: demand to look at his board's bios, I bet he missed something.

Thanks - I thought something like that would have to be possible.

I ended up going with the Crosshair and so far it has been a great board. Worked flawlessly from the start with the FX-8150 without needing to flash the BIOS - I probably should update to the latest BIOS anyway, but so far so good.

Here is the build log I put together for the build:
