Xfx 680i LT w/ q6700, updating bios??

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello all!

I just built my new computer using the xfx 680i lt mobo and q6700, I know this is not the best combo for overclocking but I would like to try for 3.0-3.2 ghz.

So, I have been told that i need to update to the newest bios before i start overclocking... How do i update the bios? Is there a link that explains how? I have a file for p31 bios, i just dont know how to apply it... any help is appreciated... thanks!!!

look on XFX's site for the bios. but i dont think you "need" the newest bios, ive never upgraded mine. im sure that will hit 3.33ghz (333x10), it shouldnt be to hard, since alot of cpus have a 333fsb stock (1333 quad pumped)

Im running the same board as you only with an E8400.. You prolly dont need to flash.
post #8 of 11
the xfx board has a auto flash bio's get the bios from xfx make sure you no your serial number to get it right. If you dont have your serial number it be on the back of your board on the sticker my dumbass threw the box away.Burn it to a disc and use the auto flash . good luck

with a bit of research. I've reached 2.94ghz. vcore at 1.269. cpu fsb at 294 mhz. memory at 882 (pc-6400 ddr2) mhz. still trying for 3ghz. come across instability at cpu fsb 298-299. how much more can i go on voltage without having to worry.
