I believe quite a few motherboards do what you say, most of my home built pc's do the same thing. Nothing to worry about I don't think.

First go back to bios 1.2 or get a beta bios from ocworkbench.com

Second yes the flash is normal

Third the htt is labeled CPU-North bound/bridge one or the other. Its labeled 1000, 800, 600 = 5x, 4x, 3x

The south-north you can keep at 1000, or put it on auto.

I wouldn't even bother changing the BIOS unless you're having problems overclocking that board...no offence, but if you don't know the best bios to use, you may not be skilled enough on that subject to update it properly, so why take risks that arnt needed, eh?!

I've messed up BIOS's (which means byebye motherboard, pretty much..) a few times in the past, and it's taught me to just leave well alone unless it NEEDS to be done lol.

I'd deffinetly suggest doing it "manualy", rather than using one of the programs which often come with boards.
