UWave2, is FIC AZ31?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Lol, Its a compaq board, but I found the orignal bios for the retail version.

should I reflash the bios? in my adventures I find that using stock bios's tends to let me do more like overclock and mess around.

Its a daunting task and I dont wanna brick this machine.

stock bios will definitly have more options. If they allow OCing or not is a different story. If you compared the boards and they are identical in every way, shape, and form, then it shouldnt be a problem to force flash it to the non-oem bios. Keep in mind though, its ALWAYS a risk, even if it seems identical, it just takes or or two small changes that werent noticed to make a difference and brick your board.
