When to flash BIOS during New Build?


Recommended Posts

Quick question:

 

Following this guide:

 

http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...04&postcount=49

 

At what point should I flash to the new BIOS? Also which one? 6-23-3?

 

Secondly, can TMod's utility be used to reset the CMOS, or do I manually need to go through the steps of reseting it?

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Bryan

I flash the bios when I am stable in memtest. I know memtest is not a very good stability program, but I want to make sure I am before I flash the bios.

 

The 623-3 is the Official bios. I like the 704-2BTA beta bios. Try both out. See which one works for you. Just so you know, if you flash to a beta, it voids your warranty.

 

I don't know if TMod's utility can be used to reset the Cmos. If it did, I still would do it manually. Thats just my preference.

If you feel you need to update the Bios, I would do so before you start installing your OS.

 

As for which Bios to use, 623-3 I believe is the latest offical Bios so its probably best to start here.
