Question about XFX/EVGA bioses

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Why cant an XFX board use an EVGA bios and vice versa. Especially for the 790i's. It doesn't make much sense.

There are hardware locks on every board that keep things from working correctly. Most bios's are made by either award or phoenix, but are tethered to the specific hardware manufacturer's specs. Even though both may be reference boards, the two companies use different pieces to manufacture, and different paths as well.
