Hey gobbo353 each to their own I guess. A lot of people have come to respect Lsdmeasap's advice and wisdom across many forums and if he advises not to use @Bios, then I wouldn't use it. I have myself bricked a board due to a bad flash using @Bios. However if you find @Bios a tried and true method for flashing your bios, then great. Just don't try put someone down for their well educated point of view. I'm sure Lsdmeasap is not someone who for the sake of it runs with a bit of hype.

All,

Here is the same run with the same settings that I used with the GOOC bios. Outcome is virtually identical.

I'd be willing to bet less than 1 percent of users have ever had a bad flash.. But again lets all get on the bandwagon.

Mac I agree with your advice in general just not when advice is exaggerated or taken out of context. Otherwise in general perhaps we should not be encouraging people ot to OC at all due to the risks.

Anyway don't mean to kick a dead horse.

I have been helping Gigabyte users for years, all day long, so I am not spreading undue fear and know exactly what I am talking about.

And that is just one site, others will come up as well if you just Google it without Tweaktown in the mix.

Do what you want, and tell others to follow your advice if you wish - but you have been warned and it's long been known that flashing with any program within windows has much larger risks than any other method.

You are probably correct, it's about 1-2% of all users (those whom do actually even flash their BIOS) have ever had a bad flash, but I bet more than 75% of that 1-2% with bad flashes was solely due to using @BIOS.

Thanks! I will try and post an MIT when I get time for anyone wanting to bench with DICE. I really did not push it to hard, volts could be used with cold air or H2O as well.

We should not have a war about using @BIOS or flashing from a mem stick, this is a good thread we should not give anyone the impression that it is not. If you chose to use @BIOS there are risks just as if you use any other way of flashing your bios...

Keep that in mind that not everyone eats the same food or drinks the same drinks but the end result is that everyone gets food and water somehow.

For sure

I wasn't trying to argue, and I can see how it looked that way so sorry to all as it was not my intention. I was just trying to make it clear to people that I am not some random dude running with someone's hyped up fears is all.

To those who do use @BIOS, just be careful and flash at stock clocks to minimize chances of failures. I'd also suggest downloading the file yourself, and using update from file with @BIOS if you plan to use it, as there have been instances where it will give the wrong BIOS for board revisions or even model variances (IE UD3P for UD3, ect)

Just be safe everyone, I do my best to help my fellow Gigabyte users with the best advice possible!
