Yes, you use another machine to use it with, doesn't matter what it is as long as it has a USB port available since even a lappy could do it.

Best thing is as long as your BIOS chip fits in it you can use it with any chip from any board making it almost universal and the same in terms of ease to use too. It will also let you know if the chip is bad BUT sometimes it will give an indication of a failed flash even though it's not, an obvious software issue with the program used to run it, happens during the verification part of the process.

Be sure to read the requirements for it before getting one since ATM it only has 32 bit support related to the OS used.

Stilt's suggestions are also good, I'd at least take a look at what he's saying as well.

As I said it seems Asus eventually solved the issues. The last bios is Ok for me. Runs at 4.2Ghz with LLC High, offset +0.006V with NB overclock at 2000Mhz.

That offset voltage is low enough to be negligible. +0.06 would be more like it.

Any chance you could check if the Flashrom is able to find your flash chip? I would need to know this for my other projects, but don´t have a board without USB Flashback available.

Sorry I don't understand, what do you want me to do ?

Edit : I guess this should do it ?

I cannot set offset to 0, as it goes to Auto... So I set minimum + 0.00625

So that new Excavator Athlon x4 just launched today. 3.5 ghz base and 3.8ghz turbo. 65W TDP and apparently comes with the Wraith cooler.

Not meant to be overclocked, though. They released a 870K which is Godavari.

Godavari chips have soldered heatspreaders which lowers temps. I think the process is a bit more mature as well but I wouldn't expect much higher OC potential.
