hi guys

thought i report this, trying a driver update for the PCI bridge in Device Manager ... mind you, i choose the 'search automatically for updated driver software', so Windows itself decided the Matrox stuff was newer and better apparently ... and frankly, may be wishfull thinking, i seem to experience an overall noticable system speed bump on an already blazing system ...
can always roll back, roight !?

The PEX8608 are the actual PLX switches used on the board, the drivers were written for Matrox Extio PCI extenders...most likely some additional special code for the extenders..

as PCIe has to be backwards compatable, the regular generic intel drivers get installed by default.

i doubt there will be any speed increase, but who knows...

Hi guys, Lately after installing BF3 I've been having some crashing issues here and there.
First reason for my crashes is my ssd. For some reason it freezes up on me and sometimes gives me bsods. ( I have an OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS)
Another type of crash i get is just a black screen freeze up while im playing BF3. When this happens my computer is totally unresponsive and i have to hit my restart button.
Lastly my last type of crash is while I'm playing BF3 my game crashes and tells me that Direct X had some issues and crashes. Sometimes it even freezes up at this point and I have to do a manual reset.
If anyone knows any fixes for any of my freezes I would Greatly appreciate the help!

Thanks!

If you haven't already updated the firmware for your SSD, do it.

The other sounds like a driver issue. I also experience some freezing and random game crashes in BF3. Most of the time it's related to the driver I'm using. For the DirectX issue, have you tried manually updating it?

How do I setup/use/activate the new BIOS for the deluxe? I DL'd the 1850 bios.

I usually put the updated BIOS file on a USB stick (formatted FAT32) and the clear the CMOS before and after update. Once you clear the CMOS go into the BIOS with the USB stick inserted and load the EZ Flash utility, once it's loaded navigate the USB directory and select the BIOS you just downloaded and that should do it. Before you do all of that make sure you write down your overclock settings, updating the BIOS usually deletes all profiles if you any. Once you have done the flash just clear the cmos once again and you're done

By clearing CMOS, are you referring to removing the CMOS battery?

Basically, yes.

After shutting down the computer, remove the power cord. Hold the power button down for 10 seconds. Then remove the CMOS battery and move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5–10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.

Though I would recommend at least 5 minutes to be sure.
