I like you have heard that also and I am sure you've also heard you can use the backup to test out a different bios and so on. I for one have both bios the same.

As far as it being bricked all you would have to do in that case is flip the switch to the backup and flash it to the bios you're using. IMO

Bottom line remains, it is up to you.

EDIT: I noticed I can access the dual bios best if I hold down the F10 key and tap the CTRL key...Food for thought.

When I went to boot up this evening I got an error message saying my BIOS was corrupted and it started to load the backup BIOS.

So I figured there was no time like the present to try out the BETA BIOS F8j.

I would seriously consider keeping this version, I love the layout, the options for ultra fast boot, the new splash screen, & some other stuff, but not being able to use a second accessory display connected to the igfx is a deal breaker for me. I can't get it to work with the same settings as I had for F7, or any other setting attempts.

Back to F7 I guess. frown.gif

Do any of you guys use Easy Tune to overclock? I've been using lately, and not having to restart the computer to lower the voltage slightly really saves a lot of time.
post #1505 of 1879
Hi,
I'm really thinking to buy G1. Sniper M3.
How do you like loudness on Creative CA0132?
Is it loud enough for headphones through the back panel?
Does headphone amplifier works only through front panel?

I'm asking because my board with Realtek ALC889 was fine, but ALC898 on two boards, both were almost 50% quieter than ALC889.

FWIW I have been using the F8j bios since it first came out without problems. They did redo the splash screens and so on but its nice. If I were you I would give a click two two more vcore of dvid voltage, which ever your using. How are you OCing it? settings that is...

I have tried it a few time but have seen that it sets voltages way higher than they need to be... That's my only problem with it. But then again I don't even use ET6 anymore.

I use front head phones and they are plenty loud for me at least. Some peeps report problems with the it no working properly and move to dedicated. I myself have never had a problem and it sounds pretty good. I'd say as good are a little better than my X-FI Gamer.

When I set the voltage to 1.45V, it goes to 1.52V. That's all they inflate for me. It might just be because I use max LLC

Honestly the only reason why I am holding back on OCing my 3770k is because of temps. I am only running on an H100, I am contemplating on upgrading to an H110, the Kraken X60 or just building my first custom loop. :/
I don't know yet.
I have a feeling I can OC to 4.2 on just the H100, but I would like to start out at 4.5 at the very least and I can't do that with the H100 with low enough temps that I would comfortable with. redface.gif

I think in the end I am going to build my first Loop before I dump $120.00 into a closed loop that will just sit after I build a loop. Just have to save up for it though. biggrin.gif

My post was mainly about not being able to use the DVI port on the Motherboard.
My SLIed 660Ti's have 3 monitors in surround and an accessory 3D Tv hooked up, & I'd like to have a 2nd Accessory hooked into the MB. I might be missing something but how does dvid voltage pertain to that.

I would certainly love to use the F8j, but the cons to it, outweigh the pros. frown.gif
