[OFFICIAL] Asus CrossHair III Formula AM3 Club - Page 7

You can download the bios from the ASUS website under BIOS section with your motherboard Crosshair Formula III.

Extract that file onto your USB stick (nothing else should be on it except for those except for the 1105 file). Its would be safe if you formatted your USB stick, so if you have stuff on it, back up those files onto a DVD or external hard drive if you have. Once it is completed formatting. Proceed with the following:

Attached here I have downloaded the Asus Crosshair III Formula off the ASUS official website in case you can't it off from there. So download that to your desktop.

Now extract that file onto your USB stick, you can either click and drag onto it or right click the file and extract to your USB stick.

Once that is done, restart the computer and don't forget to restore your bios default settings. That means if you overclocked your CPU and memory, put it back to its rated speed.

Restart the computer, enter BIOS setup and head to Tweaking from there, select "EZ Flash" and browse through the file. Select it and let it do its flashing.

Restart computer, power it down, wait 1 min. Then pull the power cable from the back of the PSU.

After 1 min, put the power cable into the PSU. Turn on the computer, and verify by loading up CPU-Z.

No problem, just trying to help you as much as I can. I am assuming you're progressing okay so far? You haven't even gave me updates on how your flashing.

Let me know.

My computer has all the parts in it, except a cpu...and I'm buying a CPU cooler as well + an aftermarket fan...so I don't have an OS either

I am taking my computer to my buddy @ his pc repair shop..and he is hooking me up with an OS :X....and installing his 940 to do the CPU flash, and will even install my CPU cooler for me (since I'm too scared to attempt it atm)

Woah, woah, woah, slow down here. Flashing is totally separate than the OS. You do not need a Windows OS installed in order to flash the mobo. You know that right?

Flashing only works with the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) utility which determines what a computer can do without accessing programs from a disk. So in other words, you can still boot up the computer without an OS to flash your BIOS.

I would recommend flashing your BIOS first before installing the OS.

Good luck!

I've been an ASUS mobo guy for a few boards, started with the A8N32-SLI Deluxe then moved to Crosshair and now onto the Crosshair II Formula..
Honestly, I'm good right now with my Crosshair II Formula, I'm running the 965 at 3.9ghz with 8gb of 1066 and it's never been better! I'll be waiting for the next 2-3 cycles of new hardware to come out before I upgrade this sucker.

You having trouble overclocking or what? That CPU should hit 4Ghz easily.

It most definitely can't hit 4.0Ghz easy

I wish I would've taken time to ask my lil' brother to drive 55miles to pick up an i7 920 for $5 more....

Ok, I don't mean that!!!



I'm sure we can do this...

I just ran a 6 hour Prime95 Blend test, and so far it's all stable.. check out my screen shot:

Looks good so far. Bump it up!

You still got plenty of vCore left. These chip can handle 1.55volts.
