Hm, it just occurred to me that I've never updated my bios.

I looked on the Gigabyte site, and it seems like there are some nice fixes. What is the easiest way to update my Bios? I have no floppy drive in my system.

Edit: Acutally, I just rebooted trying to see if I could figure out which version I have, and I didn't see anything. How do I go about finding out?

If you don't see it when you boot up, check cpuz / mainboard tab.

Bios Version F5

F6 added 45nm support, and F7 fixed 1TB drive detection errors. Seem like good fixes, think I should update now, or wait until I have a need for them? I haven't updated a Bios in years, I don't even know how I would go about doing it since I don't have a floppy drive.

I'm having trouble stablizing my G0...I would like to know what other people overclocking this chip w/ p35-ds3l are using for bios settings.

I'll start

CPU: Q6600 G0 @ 3.4ghz
VID: 1.325V
Vcore: 1.48 bios, 1.44 actual, 1.392 vdroop
FSB: 378x9
NB: +.1v
FSB: +.2v
Memory: 4gb OCZ Platinum DDR2-1000 2.1V 18-5-5-5

I'm doin fairly well with prime95 but Intel Burntest fails half and max stress

I use F9b

If you want to risk the flash (minimal if done correctly) download the manual with the instructions:

I use my floppy drive but I believe you can use a flash drive (formatted in Fat16 or 32, if I remember correctly).

if i were you, i wouldnt update. dont fix it if it isnt broke, right? im running F5 too.. no problems.. i doubt you'll need them right now. your Q6600 is 65nm, not 45nm

but, if you decide to, follow this guide it will show you the easiest and best way to flash your bios (using a usb flash drive) on a gigabyte board:

I thought F6 added 45nm support.

How are you running your 45nm on F5?

I have BIOS version F4, and I'm running a e8400. Should I update my BIOS? I haven't noticed anything negative with F4, but would I see better performance with F6 or F7?

How are you running your 45nm on F5?
He is running an GA-EP35-DS3L.
I am running a GA-P35-DS3L.

Which DS3L do you have? They were talking about mine, which is a P35-DS3L that can only support 45nm chips with an F6 bios and above.

Your sig only says Gigabyte DS3L, there are newer DS3Ls that support 45nm without Bios updates.
