First off I would flash to the 623. My reasoning is you want to make damn sure the board is OK before you go voiding the warrany right off the back. After you flash the reset cmos then load optimised defaults. Then you can do a windows install :)

I'd run memtest (you can do this with a setting in the bios), before starting windows install, for a couple hours, and make sure it's error free. This could prevent having to re-install because the system was unstable and errored during the initial install.

If you look around or search there is a really good guide on doing all this.
