I'm using bios F8a (on mobo version 2.0). Is there a newer version out yet?
Somewhere I thought I'd seen or imagined a bios #10 (to much lack of sleep ?).

Temperature readings from different utilities all over the place, afraid to raise voltage until I'm sure of one being correct. Too many stories of 8400's burning up.
you bastard...that chip is damn efficient.

OK I finally got my rig all together. I'm hesitant on flipping the switch though. I want to dot all my I's and cross all My T's before doing so... I downloaded the F8a bios from giga's website, but it comes as like a zip file, and I don't know whether to just write the zip to the flash drive, or extract and write the 3 files to the flash drive, or just the FLASH895 file to the flash drive! Common sense would tell me write all 3 extracted files to the flash drive, but never having done this before has me 2nd guessing myself.

my graphics card totally covers the SB! LOL! No chance in hell of ever getting a heatsink on there. It kind of worried me when I saw that and made me realize why so many other boards have heatpipes going from NB to SB...

Funny you mentioned that....during the build, I pulled out a new Evercool hsf mean't for my DFI mobo, saw that it would fit but decided against it. Initial build required too many extra wires/cables for floppy needed for bios flash first boot. It has since been used, stripped, and wiring redone and tied down.
The Evercool would of bolted right on, may need to install it at a later date.

If using the memory stick or zip drive, you need to verify its formatted for FAT32, not NFTS or it shouldn't work. Review mobo manual, seen it there. Use the floppy flash in bios (easy). Read Q-Flash bios flash. Just need a floppy for initial flash, then disconnect.

Anyway, the 8400 will post first time to enter bios with the GA-P35-DS3L.
I didn't attempt to run it and install the OS without the F8a bios flash but there was a review on the egg that the flash wasn't needed! Don't know how true that is.
My mobo is a revision 2.0.

dudes... I am in BIOS. but went to PC health status and saw my CPU temp was 90C, and it said fan was 0 rpm so I shut it down... crap... all warnings and things were disabled... crap crap crap

well my hsf want turning, I just bumped it and it started turning... now my cpu temp is 43C. **** I hope I didn't do any damage.... Why are all CPU warning temperature and CPU fan fail warning DISABLED from the start?! ****! that **** should have been enabled!!

I set CPU temp warning to 70C
CPU FAN fail warning enabled

DAMN... you'd think CPU FAN Fail Warning would have been enabled as a default setting ****

Do you think I did any damage? It was at 90C for less than 2 minutes...

The only other computer I have is a laptop so I can't write to a floppy.... I wrote the 3 F8a files to the flash drive but the bios doesn't recognize it for some reason. In Q-Flash it just says invalid master boot record. Floppy A and HDD 1-0. How do I verify that its formatted for FAT32? It's a Corsair Flash Voyager 2GB
