Thank you slink, I now have been edgamacated on the Kuma core. I will be going to Fry's today to get the Ph II 940 on sale for $180 NIB Retail FTW. I suppose I could get 4 Kuma's for the price of one Ph II 940 but then I would have to sell 2 x2 5400+ and get another mobo. Decissions decissions

Here's to hoping I have better results becuase I don't have a removable bios chip.

Edit: I just won this on Ebay FTW. Do you guys think this will keep the Ph II 940 cool???

Thank you

After flashing the 2205 bios I recieved a cmos checksum error after reboot but I reset to default settings and it started up fine. Went back in and set a 3% OC. Everything seems to be working fine with my system.

Did you restore all your bios setting to factory default before you flashed?

Can any one tell me step by step how to flash the bios from a floppy? Then a step by step from a USB thumb drive. Then from w/in Windows using x64 bit OS. I will post the instructions on the opening post of this thread.

Thank you,

No I didn't restore the factory settings before I flashed. I didn't really have the settings that far off from factory though. I don't really like overclocking the FSB or memory but I probably would OC if I had a CPU with an unlocked multiplier.

I just used the ASUS update program from my MB cd. Downloaded the bios update, unrared/unzipped the bios bin and used the option of updating bios from file within this program.

So is this step " unrared/unzipped required and if so is it possible you have some corruption becuase of the Application that you use to unrare/unzip it before flashing?

It's a compressed file that you download from the internet. I believe it's a zip file and I have winrar as the default program to uncompress zip or rar files. My flash worked fine and I've rebooted several times since the flash. My computer is working fine and if it was corrupted I don't think my computer would post let alone run correctly.

I can understand that.. having a bad flash can render your MB useless sometimes. I wouldn't use a floppy ... you can breathe on them wrong and cause corruption
