Re: BIOS flash
I have that same board and you can just use the bios flash tool. Mine booted with my 955 even though it wasn't supported at the time all it did was run it with a reduced clock but still allowed me to boot. The Driver CD that comes with it has a bios flash tool that will go online and get the newest BIOS for it and flash it for ya. If you have your Bios on a flash drive when the splash screen comes up just hit the button for Q-Flash or you can get to it from the bios as well I think its F8 in there. and then go to the boot from drive and then select the flash drive. It basically does the rest for ya.
