Will flashing using AFUDOS make a difference?

Tried AFUDOS flash and no luck going from P5E 0702 BIOS to P5E Deluxe 0105BIOS.

In EZ flash: "ROM ID in the file is incompatible with existing BIOS!"

With AFUDOS: "ERROR: Unable to open ROM file"

Am I doing something wrong?

EZ Flash is only for upgrading the bios
Afudos is for the crossflashing that we are doing.

You have typed something wrong in the afudos command - file name correct etc

I was typing: afudos /iP5E-ASUS-Deluxe-0105.rom /pbnc /n

Once I typed the abridged dos filename it worked:

afudos /iP5E-AS~1.rom /pbnc /n

Thanks for the help! Now on to overclocking....

My initial results from flashing to P5E Deluxe 0105 Bios from P5E 0702 Bios are good. It seems to have reduced vdroop ( I haven't pencil modded) and I'm getting more stability with overclocks I couldn't even get past POST with before...

With my Q6600 I am currently running at 9 x 400 fsb with a 333 strap. I set my Vcore to 1.50000 in bios and it droops to about 1.44 - 1.46 in OS under load. Temps are good, staying in the 44-50 degrees C max.

Is this voltage too high for 24/7 use? Also, I've been testing stability in Prime 95 and all seems good until maybe 25-35 minutes I get BSOD. What can I do to get this overclock fully stable?

Here's my settings:

Ai Tweaker

Ai Overclock Tuner: Manual
CPU Ratio Setting: 9.0
FSB Frequency: 400
FSB Strap to North Bridge: 333
PCIE Frequency: 100

DRAM Frequency: DDR2-801mhz (I actually have 1033, so its underclocked)
DRAM Command Rate: Auto
DRAM Timing Control: Auto (defaults to 5-5-5-15)
DRAM Static Read Control: Auto
Ai Clock Twister: Auto
Ai Transaction Booster: Auto
VCORE Voltage: 1.50000
CPU PLL Voltage: Auto
FSB Termination Voltage: Auto
DRAM Voltage: 2.10
North Bridge Voltage: Auto (Do I need to set this manually/increase it)
South Bridge Voltage: Auto

Loadline Calibration: Enabled
CPU GTL Voltage Reference: Auto
NB GTL voltage Reference: Auto
SB 1.5V Voltage: Auto

CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled

Advanced CPU Settings


CPU Ratio Setting: 9.0
C1E Support: Disabled
CPU TM Function: Disabled
Vanderpool Technology: Disabled
Execute Disable Bit: Disabled
Max CPU Value Limit: Disabled

Try this:

VCORE Voltage: 1.50000v
CPU PLL Voltage: 1.58v
FSB Termination Voltage: 1.4v
DRAM Voltage: 2.10
North Bridge Voltage: 1.45v - 1.5v
South Bridge Voltage: Auto

Loadline Calibration: Enabled
CPU GTL Voltage Reference: .63x
NB GTL voltage Reference: .67x



To answer your question about 24/7 use, you are fine up to 1.5v, so 1.46v in windows is not an issue at all:







Once you get the CPU stable, start testing out the ram. Try this:

Ai Clock Twister: Moderate
Ai Transaction Booster: Enabled
Mode: 7

all Pull-ins: enabled

If it doesnt boot after those memort settings, try Ai Clock Twister: Auto. If still not booting disable pull ins. It still not booting after that, set Ai Transaction Booster mode to 8



On the otherhand, if it does boot and passes memtest, start lowering the Ai transaction booster from 7 to 6 to 5.

I'm using one of these in my new build! It's exactly the same as a Maximus Formula apparently. Logan from TigerDirect peeled off a sticker which even revealed "Maximus Formula" on the motherboard.

What BIOS should I flash when I get it?

Using the directions from the first post in this thread, I would recommend flashing it to a P5E Deluxe. Here is the new bios:
ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/mb/so...eluxe-0205.zip

You could flash to the Rampage Formula, but the P5E Deluxe has all the same features, but without you having to disable some of the features in bios notr available to the P5E board (mostly Temp sensors that will give you errors if they are enabled).
