Flashing the BIOS question!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok I am supposed to be getting the rest of my parts for my build tom, so i just want to clear up a few things. the only part about the entire build that i was ever worried about was just setting up the BIOS when you first power it on, and then flashing the BIOS. Now the questions that I have are: When I flash the bios, how do i go about doing it? I know you can download it from a different computer onto like a flash-drive, or just do it once the OS is installed, but I am just not sure how you go about doing it. In the BIOS does it have a selection directly for flashing it? The other question is if I'm not planing on overclocking, or anything like that, is there really truly any changes that will have to be made besides the basic, time and date, and boot order?
Thanks for all the help and advice, I appreciate it, I am definitely excited to get everything and get it completed! So thanks everyone again!

so this is a pretty usefull article on flashing bios this should answer most if not all question
and if you really aren't going to overclock then there is no point of flashing bios and most factory bios usually come with the option of boot order, so my recommendation if you really want to overclock but your current bios dont allow go for, but if you aren't really going to overclock don't just flash bios for funzies because flashing bios is a very complicated task and one error might eff up your system and even void warranty if it is screwed up that bad
