Thats your problem right there.....You need a stable bios in order to do some serious Overclocking

EDIT::::::Hold on, I'll get you what you need, just download the F8 bios from Gigabyte website for now and extract it to you desktop

Here download is file and install while in windows, this program will allow you to update your bios while in Windows
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/M...lity&FileID=52


Here is what it will look like.... then just Update bios with the file you just downloaded (F8)

I entered my bios quick flash utility but i only had 2 options, one was to save bios to driver other was to load, i picked load but i could only choose a floppy, and i dont even have a floppy driver.

Are there any other ways to update my bios?

Don't flash bios in Windows unless you want to brick your board!!~

If you do some googling you will find it is very easy to do with a flash drive. flash bios flash drive

Hey hondaguy, thanks
I put it on 4.0 did some testing, upped the vcore And ran a 3 hour occt test and it was stable...
Ran prime 95 and the 1st core kept on getting an error...
My nb speed is at 25xx...
I think my nb vid voltage is holding me back as I upped the nb click speed?
What is safe nb vid voltage and could this be my problem?
I'm at work Now and my nb vid voltage is on 1.2500...
Do you think I need som more to get it 100 % stable?
Also my bios has a nb vid voltage and also another nb voltage?
Which one should I be bumping up?
I've only been upping nb vid and not nb...
Hope you understand what I'm trying to say

Dopamin3, well yes and no. Yes you risk bricking your bios when flashing in Windows but the same thing can occur when doing it after POST. I think the percentage of failure is much higher when flashing in Windows. Honestly though the process is so quick I hardly ever hearing it happening...but there are those times when some of us aren't lucky.

Ocfanboy, I would try giving your NB Vid a bump of +.200. I believe HondaGuy recommends +.200 for anything above 3600Mhz OC and 2400Mhz NB. In regards to your second question, "NB Vid" controls the voltage going to NB that is on the processor. "NB voltage" is the voltage for your chipset (motherboard).

Hope that helps

Thanks
my problem is my stock nb vid is 1.1000 stock I'm already up to 1.2500...
Occt says my CPU is stable and I think prime95 telling me that my hrdware working together is not stable so I'm guessing it's my nb vid...
When you say +200? I think I've done that? I'm busy running prime as we speak so I will see if it's stable at nb vid 1.2500... But that's only in bout ten hours time...
