Guest phat Posted August 12, 2005 Posted August 12, 2005 Okay, I just got my psu in (thanks Dread-Star, playah and Thewacokid), and I will be installing the new rig this weekend. I have been keeping tabs on this forum and its starting to freak me out. :eek2: I am not much of an overclocker (tho I may dabble since this board is so oc friendly), I basically just want a nice stable rig for gaming and whatnot. I was able to get this mobo as a chipset combo for a nice price, but following this forum has me thinking I'm in over my head. Basically what I am able to discern is that the shipped bios is not going to cut it. I need to flash to the 623. And after that there may be some fiddling to get 2 gigs of ram to run in a 4x512 setting. I am still basically a newb at building machines. This is like my 4th personal, and I have built a few for friends. I have never flashed a bios (fyi, I am ducking right now ). I have read the nF4 BIOS List many times, and was curious....do y'all think that I'd be better off flashing from the cdrom type? (because it has instructions to follow). Also, I keep reading about a clear cmos before and after flash. Do I take that to mean; open new motherboard and take battery out and clear cmos before even approaching my case? I am fairly confident I'll be up and running, but would really like some last minute advice from teh l337ers here. You can talk down to me....I'm grown...I can take it. :shake: Thanks. phat Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
