I've got a wicked kewl Guinness ad that I put together with two of my all time favorite game logos, F@H logo and a Pearl Jam Ten logo. Although somehow I left a little white showing on the right hand side which was magnified when the updater swapped it out. Still looks kewl though.

If you need assistance lemme know and I'll give you a step by step including pic size should you wish to change your splash screen. It does have to be 256bit color though otherwise the splash looks pixelated. ...

That splash screen sounds cool. I love Guinnuss, there is a Guinnuss club here at OCN.
I don't really have a need to change mine though, board is only used for benchmarking so it's not turned on that much.

As far as Windows flashing, I am pretty old school and have my reservations about flashing a BIOS via Windows. How safe is it these days? Has anyone had or heard of boards being bricked this way recently.

Don't even need a USB. Just load up ezflash 2 from the bios and find the bios file with the utility. Simple.

Hi guys, I have been getting some hard lockups as of late. I am leaning towards my ram. I got some of these : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231429
and thats when it all started. I even dropped them down to 1333 to see if that would help but it didnt.
I cant even seem to get through one round of bfbc2 before it locks up.
everything else is at stock at the moment.
Any suggestions???

I had a similar issue last month with my Crosshair 6970 crossfire rig and it turned out to be the PSU.. Worth looking into the power supply. Not that ram doesn't play into it as it sometimes does but you can trouble shoot that one fairly easily with just one stick of ram running below default frequencies and timings...

Good Luck..

This is so simple, my 60 year old mother could do it and she's always calling me or my brother for assistance. You just keep your pic someplace easily accessible(such as Desktop) and select the directory you need from the menu. It has a BIOS save feature so you don't frag your BIOS in the process of changing the screen and along the way it will ask you if you have a jpg or bmp to swap in you can see more if you search YouTube with the appropriate tags. It's how I learned how to use mine.

It's so awesome I probably won't be using EZFlash which is Pre-Kinder easy as well.

Yea thats right, now Im gathering info to do a decent loop.

Wanted to ask you guys if it seems cool.
1st of all: Replace my NZXT Lexa S with an Antec Twelve Hundred, it will give me loads of space compared to the Lexa S.

I have atm a Raid configuration and Im wondering if im able to fit a 360 rad on the front bezel+reservoir+pump+and the two 3.5" HDD's, any1 knows?

EK CoolStream RAD XT 360
EK CoolStream RAD XT 240
EK Bay Spin Reservoir Acetal
10*EK-PSC Fitting 10mm G1/4 Nickel
Swiftech MCP35X(pump)
EK Supreme HF Full Nickel

These are the main parts.
My plan was to put the 360 on the front and the 240 on the back, reservoir on the 5.25" bay with the pump under it.

Reservoir>Pump>360 Rad>CPU>240 Rad>Reservoir

This would be temporary.
I havent add no gpu block cause im changing my gpu to prolly a crossfire 7970 and atleast a quadcore bulldozer in due time.
After getting new GPUs i'd do:

Reservoir>Pump>360 Rad>GPU>240Rad>CPU>Reservoir

I am just looking and havent decided nothing yet.
Will the 360 rad fit inside the Antec and leave enough space for my HDD's?
Would you guys change anything on the loop?
Say all you guys want this would be my very own 1st water loop, and I've chosen those parts after researching what I need.
I would recommend using either swifttech rads or blackice rads. Sorry no links sending from my phone. But frozencpu.com has both

I wish I could order stuff from that website, or even Newegg.
But I cant, but the shop I usually get my stuff from has both brands rads.
Thanks for the input eclipse.

I just don't trust windows to flash anything when a crash could result in dead hardware. If I did choose to flash from windows i would reset my bios to stock, but since i need that from bios.....

Have you had any issues with a windows flash? ever? cause i would like to change my boot up screen to something tasteful....possibly a nekkid chick

Nope, I've never tried a .gif package. Would be ultra awesome though. It has to be 256bit though anything more and the screen is pixelated and just comes out looking flawed.

Also I'm pretty sure once you've gone forward with BIOS updates you cannot return to stock. I tried it a couple times and both times failed. I tried it when my fan header was really annoying the crap out of me when I had a fan plugged in there and it wasn't reporting the RPM speed of a fully functional fan when other headers would report speeds back to PCProbe II.

I finally said Eff it and will deal with that at a later date. I still have another year and a half or better on this board before I absolutely have to RMA it if I intend to sell it to help fund future upgrade.

I meant stock setting. No overclock. I might have to try it one day.
