ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 unofficial 1.90A BIOS

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Not many know much about these mobo's but for just a little info they are hybrid with an AGP and PCI-E bus and does DDRII 667 and DDR 400. Heres a little more info: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.as...COREDUAL-SATA2

Apparently this mobo only supports 2 gigs of ram but there have been reports of people getting it up to 3.25 gigs using DDRII 800 Ram, downloading and installing the 1.90A unofficial BIOS, and lowering some basic BIOS settings. I have been searching and have found no download links for the 1.90A BIOS. If anyone knows anything about this then please give me some links.

Here is a link to download the new ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 unofficial 2.00A BIOS:

http://www.pctreiber.net/filebase.php?fileid=2546&lim=0

(The BIOS Link in the "downloads" box near the bottom of the webpage, just click on its direct download link: 4coredual-sata2_bios200a_pctreiber.net.zip)

The board must be flashed via DOS for any "A" revision BIOS using ASRFLASH.
You can obtain ASRFLASH which comes prepacked with the standard 2.00 BIOS here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.as...s=&T=B&ID=1757

Now prepare a boot disk and unzip the files downloaded from the ASRock website to the disk, but remember to delete the standard BIOS and replace it with the "A" BIOS downloaded from the pctreiber.net website llink above.

Boot your computer to the A: prompt and type: "ASRFLASH 4cds2_2.00a", then follow the on-screen directions.

After flash, go into the new BIOS and under the "Advanced" screen go into the chipset screen to set your menmoy's speed & timings manually. Also set the DRAM voltage to "low". Hope the helps....
