I have not heard of anyone bricking a board yet.

Is that even possible? Like, I guess what I'm asking is, what is the worst thing that could happen if I try to crossflash the BIOS?

The worst thing possible is that you can brick it. But you have the same chance bricking any normal bios flash as you do cross-flashing through DOS (assuming you have the compatible bios).

There is a way to recover the bios from the original CD included with the board. it includes a recover bios.rom file which can sometimes be recovered. If that didn't work, you would have to either replace the bios chip with a chip already flashed (if the chip is removeable) or you would have to pay to ship the board as an RMA to ASUS and they would replace the bios chip.

But this is the same risk you run flashing anymotherboard, with the exception of those boards running dual bios chips.

I recently used Nlite to create a striped version of Xp and also slipped all my drivers in there at the same time.

Glad I was linked to this. good info here.

I have a P6T SE.
Didn't really choose it was the only board that was cheap enough MSI had some shipping issues. South Africa.
I would propable never need to cross flash becaus I am planging on a 5770 xfire system and later on a 5870 xfire system. But its really nice to know that if I should deside to go SLI I can.
But what I would really love to see is some benchmarks compairing the P6T SE cross flashed with preferably the P6T but any other factory SLI ready board would do.

To be honest, there is no physical difference with the PCI-E slots, it is all down to the licesne paid to NVIDIA for SLI capabilities. The code is embeded into the bios code. So there is technically no difference between the P6TSE and P6T when it comes to the PCI-E lanes.

What are the chances that Asus pays nvidia for the licencing in the future and they update the BIOS for this board to be "legitimately" SLI ready?

I just got really depressed before I found out you can crossflash bios from you guys. I bought a prebuilt system and the sales rep. lied to me and told me that that the board was both SLI and Crossfire...shame on me for purchasing before confirming.
