Can updating my BIOS

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
fix an oc that is on the edge of instability?

I have no errors running any stress test But when I run Folding@Home I sometimes get an "unstable Machine" error.
I know this is because my oc is just on the edge.

So if I update my bios from 0602 to 1102, can that stabilize my overclock?

According to the Asus website release notes on all the BIOS updates from 0704 through 1005 state that stability issues is one of the problems addressed by the new BIOS. If you update your BIOS I would update it to the latest version, 1207.
