It may. What does the change log on the new bios say? Anything in reference to stability issues?
post #22 of 33
Usually, newer Bios are always recommended, but you can try some older ones to see if anything changes...

You should always try the newest BIOS, jsut be careful not to brick your board.

I'm not comfortable with walking you through the process, but usually you either boot into DOS or your motherboard may contain a flash utility that can be booted into by pressing a key on boot. You can read about it on the manufacturer website. It is not possible to completely prevent bricking the board.

To op, what 955 do you have? C2 or C3? I got a really bad C2 that can't go past 3.6ghz(by any combination of fsb/multi's) w/o crashing in PRIME95 overnight let alone playing a game of BC2 for 5minutes. Before anyone asks, temps on mine at 3.5ghz under load gets to 50c max in prime95 for small fft's, 49c in blend. I've tried different ram timings (7-7-7-21 @ 1333, 9-9-9-24 @ 1600), latest bios, memtest standard settings overnight (came back fine, no errors).

I'm blaming my crappy 955 for it.

Sadly C2's don't OC much. It's really a gamble as to far you can get stable. The C3's can make 4ghz though. If you want you could probably try to sell yours and just go for something better like a 6 core (1055, 1075, 1090T, 1100T) or other quads like 965, 970, etc.

Me though, I'm just waiting on Bulldozer.

i may just build a new system in year or so, as my mb is very dated now. I may get a new cpu when i do that and get a bullddozer or the 1090T.
