just create a FAT32 format USB stick,. place the bios file in it. follow the steps in m-flash. will do the job in less than a minute.
Did those exact steps.... went to bios > M-Flash > Update Bios > selected A7577AMS.1G0 > I want to Flash Bios > Hang > 5 minutes later > Continued hang..... USB 2.0 STick is a FAT32 Format.

So my B55 (555 unlocked to quad) is doing 4ghz stable with stock voltage (1.4v). It can easily do 4.1ghz with a little voltage bump, though I can't seem to get 4.2 to even last past 30mins-1hr in Prime95 or LinX, though I've only gone up to 1.48v. I can even get the NB to 3000mhz with only 1.4v for my CPU-NB voltage. I really love these C3 chips.

Here's a validation with 4.3ghz, though it's not Prime95 or LinX stable:

Last night i got to the windows load screen with 3996Mhz with the voltage at 1.42 but then BSOD

Cpu-NB i think i had it 1.32v? (cant remeber) Im seriously thinking my Ram is holding me back i've gotten to 3.9Ghz with one stick before - but wasnt stable at all.

i think my HT Freq is at aroudn teh 2550Mhz mark - it booted extremly quickly but BSOD 2 seconds into windows.

what should i alter im sure i can crak 4Ghz with this setup (maybe more if i change the ram - looking at Mushkins redbacks but i kinda wanna keep the colour scheme too haha.
Glad those fans are doing great for you! Though for increasing your vcore, you shouldn't worry so much about your idle temps, but instead, you should be looking at your load temps (hopefully 55C or below).

For a C2, you'll be looking at 1.5-1.55v for 4ghz and even then it might not even be stable. Also, try to overclock one thing at a time, so just OC the cpu and see how high you can get that, then start with your NB freq, then finally RAM speed and/or timings.

Try to keep the HT Link freq. as close to 2000mhz as possible, since anywhere past 2200mhz will actually make you lose performance. I usually try to keep it at 1900-2100mhz, which ever is closer to 2000mhz.

Works great for me, I get temps around 30-34C depending on if my window is open and maybe jumps a few C when in load.

It's not necessary, but it would help much better than the stock ones.

Actually the only important thing is that it's a FAT32 format. I have mine set as DOS-bootable and it has gpu BIOS files in there and other stuff, but I was still able to use M-Flash in the BIOS menu to get up to the 1.G BIOS.

Good luck! Are you gonna have your H50 with Push/Pull as an exhaust on top of your case or as an intake on the front or side panel?

I'm getting great performance as intake in the rear of my case, especially since the intake is right next to my window. Also helps that I have a big 200mm fan to suck up all the hot air coming through the rad.

Btw, make sure you screw in the 4 screws on the clips enough to get the circular retention clip to move around that empty shaft on the screws. Not sure if you'll get it now, but you'll know what I'm talking about once you install it.

Question for those who's baords died. I have the 1090T in now. had a good overclock on it. Details on my sig. I have since put it back to stock. But now It seems every couple boots myboard does not post bios. Is this a sign that the 1090T is killing my board? Running the 1.G bios

mine started doing the same thing after i took out my 1075t and put my 965 back in. it was squealing loudly at one point too. for me it doesn't seem to matter what bios i use. its still working though.
