Tech support is lying kinda. The GD70 does not have a removable bios chip so the usual machine way is out. but they may have some sort of setup where they contact the chip pins and flash that way.

On another note I would call and complain if the bios is the same and they were supposed to change it.

Generally, if you need help, you ask nice.

I agree but I try to give at least one answer before I write them off. In this case tho I felt that what I said was warranted.

thanks dir_d I am running memtest atm, I would really like to figure out if SOMETHING I purchased is ok to keep, I feel wrong for RMA'ing everything cuss i cant get it to work =/

Im sure its alot to do with me not knowing what im doing, but I dont see why I am only crashing during video games, but I can do anything else with this PC.

on a side note... what would be ideal settings that I should put into the bios, I think im forgetting to put volts into something while other stuff is too high or something

You shouldnt have to touch anything for it to run at stock, if you do i think thats bad quality of some part and should be replaced.

yes...and you should be able to set ur ram timing to what they say they can run ie 7-7-7@1.9v 1600 . The memory should run at 7-7-7-21 or 24@1.9v at the frequency of 1600mhz

Well... you may need to manually set ram settings, like volts and timings, and usually some amount of extra SB volts usually helps a bit.

But otherwise auto settings on just about everything else should be fine for stock speeds.

Tell them the truth..Your system is stock and still crashing you are not sure what piece it is so you are RMAing it all or you think its the mobo so you are going to return that or you think its the chip...you get the picture.

Not if you ran a mem test and it passed.
