Hi, I have the 12/07 bios for my DR-Xpert right now..

 

 

I was wondering If I update the bios... will I lose my CPU/Mem OC?

Yes you will, in a way, sort of...

 

The settings will still be saved BUT DON'T USE THEM!!! Not even the ones stored in the CMOS Reloaded, when flashing to any other BIOS NEVER USE OLD SAVED SETTINGS. Also always do a cmos clear after updating BIOS.

 

But you could just write em down on a piece of paper.

That is untrue. I have flashed my bios countless times and used the same stable settings. But, this is a big but, as soon as you are done flashing to the newer one clear your CMOS, set it to optimized default first then load your saved one. After that double check your settings because of the fact that the new bios will alter your vcore setting. I normally run another prime and check the stability again. I just came from 12/0/05 to Tony's modded 4/6/06 and used the same settings.

That is interesting...I was under the impression you shouldn't load the CMOS reloaded option after changing BIOS versions....

I saw this info here sometime ago...don't remember where....

anwyay...good to know...
