Is there a guide to the washer mod? Otherwise what size washers should one use and how just how much tightening did you do? Dont want to crush any chips .

Well currently the BIOS is still immature. If you look back about 15-20 pages, I think Moorhen was able to get a stable 4.2ghz OC on a hexa without going past 1.48V. He does have watercooling though, so that might give him an extra 100-200ghz than with aircooling.

I kinda google this issue but didnt find a solution to my problem, if yall dont mind me posting it here but probably someone will know. I just unplug my whole rig n brought it to my friends house like I have done before, but this time when I connected everything and I go to turn my rig on. The lights light up quick for like 5 sec. and then it just doesnt do anything but the 2 LED blue lights r on for the memory. I try unplugging power cord, clear cmon and messing wit the JBAT pin and no luck on my rig turning on. Can anyone plz help me if you know the answer to my problem just email me to jardila32@hotmail.com thx.

Hi Everyone,

got my 790FX GD70, Phenom II x 4 965 BE, and im gonna build my pc soon....
SO is it always best to upgrade to the latest bios?, im wont do 6 cores so upgrading to BIOS 1.9 should be fine....or should i just leave my bios as is, it may have 1.5 curently..dunno

Is bios upgrades a panfree process or are there things to worry about...


Thanx

I recently received a new board via RMA and it came with BIOS ver. 1.9. I have since flashed to 1c and everything is good. As for the flash I used MFlash in the BIOS and it was totally painless. Just stick it on a usb flash drive and you're good to go!

Actualy when i first got my PHenom II C3 955 I was stable at 4ghz at 1.425-1.43. Now I have to set it to 1.48v in the Bios. It shows as 1.472v in CPUZ at idle and bounces between 1.456v-1.462v in CPUZ during Full load.

If you have your CPU_NB Multiplier set anything above x13, it's most likely the cold boot issue. Which means any CPU-NB Multi above x13 will not Boot from shutoff. However, it will reboot from x13 to x14+ from BIOS. So just a thought on that.

I haven't heard anything lately. It os a bios issue though. If you try using Beta BIOS 1.51b it boots from x14 CPU-NB Multi. Hopefully they wil eventually fix it. IT would be nice to be able to shut my PC down once in while and have it boot back into OS with my Stable 3ghz CPUNB Settings.

Just use a FAT32 Formated USB Device, put the BIOS file, right in the main root of the USB (not in a folder on the USB device) and you can use M-Flash in the bios which is pretty painless. I use Beta 1.84b and Beta 1.102 and they both seem very solid. I haven't tried anything further, though I will be this weekend. it is generally good to use the latest for best performance, but it doesn't always work out that way.

Best way to flash the mobo is using a bootable usb drive, afudos and the proper bios file.
