    To flash an old BIOS, you need the engineering edition of AFUDOS which can flash an older BIOS. I don't recall where I got mine (using 2.36 if I recall), but I needed it to flash older BIOSes on both...

    Lot's of short attack fodder coming out of Seeking Alpha recently.

    Never been a huge fan of OCZs memory products, but these allegations are pretty absurd.

    Hello,

    I'm wondering if anyone has modded the FC final BIOS for the UD5 rev 2.0 with the latest Intel/JMicron/Realtek ROMs, or if this BIOS already includes such updates.

    If the BIOS supports the six core i7s it should work with the Xeons. Haven't tried it myself however.

    It's essentially just a 512MB USB flash drive soldered to a header on the board.

    It only appears in windows with the P6X58D BIOS.

    Any place we can request features and have a decent chance of them showing up?

    I just switched back to an ASUS board (P6TD Deluxe) for my primary system and was unpleasantly surprised how many...

    Just cross-flashed my P6TD Deluxe with the P6X58D Premium 0813 BIOS.

    Some issues I've run into:

    - USB 1&2 default to a USB 3.0 controller that does not exist on the P6T line, making the devices...

    Similar chip is used on my 5850 Toxic, and I think on the 5870 Vapor-X rev. 2.

    Would a pencil version of this mod be possible? Soldering things so small is beyond my experience and tools.

    Would it be possible for someone with the Sapphire 5870 Vapor-X Rev 2. (blue PCB) to provide a link to a BIOS dump?

    I ask because my new Sapphire 5850 Toxic looks to have the same PCB and I'm...

    Putting a page-file on a ram drive is foolish. It totally defeats the purpose of a page-file, wastes RAM that could be otherwise used for something useful, and reduces performance slightly.

    The XP (and XP x64) betas were released the same time as the Vista/7 betas, it's just that no one has bothered to upload them anywhere.

    Just register on the AMD developer site and download them.

    What kind of cooling is on the memory/VRMs? Have you tried a lower memory clock? Is the GPU die making good contact with your water block?

    I've found that on my Sapphire 5850, RTHDRIBL causes lockups/artifacting/instability at lower clock/higher voltages than any other tests I've tried (inlcuding FurMark).

    For those with 1GHz+ GPU...

    Ordered a 5850 yesterday, looking forward to seeing what it can do.



    Which is exactly why it's a good stress tester. I always want to have some margins, so worst case scenario tests are a must.

    Plenty of boards can disable PROCHOT throttling, but I would be very surprised if the higher temperature thermal trip (auto power down at ~125C) could be disabled. I had always figured that was an...

    As far as I am concerned, if Intel really wanted their ES chips back, they should have been more careful who they loaned them to.

    The law be damned; it will matter when it's enforceable. As for...
