noob wanting to try update g1 sniper 3 bios help please

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I am expecting to get my system back from scorptec any day now after a massive repair job due to psu blowing up,

currently my sytem has a 3570k chip

anyhow, i would love to update my mobo bios if not already done by the guys at scorptec, i have a few questions before that though which im a little confussed about which are;

- does updating the bios improve higher oc's cpu-wise

- what benefits and disadvantages will i expect from updating my bios if not already done

- and lastly is there anyone who can tell or show me a way to update the bios as i know some mobo require a thumbdrive or usb stick to do so and to me it sounds a bit complicating, so is there a way i can update bios which is explained "in layman's terms" please

any advice or info good or bad would be greatly appreciated smile.gif

oh also what are like the avg overclocks people are getting with this board and cpu? not important lol, just curious:)

With a gigabyte board just look through your start menu in windows for the gigabyte folder and run @bios then follow the instructions. As to benefits look up the release notes for your boards BIOS versions on the Gigabyte site you can see what they added/changed.
