Re: BIOS update PROBLEM
You know, I've never used anything but Asus boards (except once when I had an Abit IC7 Max 3) and I've always used Asus Update to flash the bios and I have never had one go bad.
All my os's have been 32bit though so I guess in light of the 64bit issue that would explain a lot.
I feel sorry for worshipme sitting there with two new cpu's and no board, I would go mad. (probably buy a new board to tell the truth)
My memory on my P5K/E3110 setup won't play nice at 900MHz so I can't oc it to 4GHz, big choice now, risk divorce by purchasing faster memory (Kingston HyperX 2048MB 1066MHz DDR2, Non-ECC, CL5, for ~$100, pffft) or being happy with a rock solid 3.6GHz 1:1 with the 4GB DDR2 800MHz I already have, decisions decisions lol
