    Default how reliable is face wizard and can i buy a bios chip as backup?

    It's soldered in, but that's not an issue. M57SLI-S4 (rev 2). I am scared to death of unnecessary BIOS flashes, but at the same time I love to tinker with stuff.

    HAHA, Yeah you cant buy a new one. But I just used the app myself last week, after long thoughts about it. Works fine. I did however not use autoflash options. I let it get the bios onboard, added a image and saved it, then booted into qflash and installed it.

    Up to you, your are right BIOS flash is a risky business. I do it often but that dont mean everyone should.

    All up to you, but to answer you about it...It works fine I think. I have since used the autoflash option but I suggest you manually do it though

    Thanks, I appreciate your input! :)

    Maybe if I close my eyes it won't hurt so much...

    Ya, that is exactly what I did when I first used it, and prayed! Alas the image was not a clear as I had hoped anyway and still have yet to make a new one.

    Here is what I made, and It didnt look as good as it should when I made it into a BMP(A bit more fuzzy when actually used, and still not the Blue that I tried to make when it converts as well). Have to try again sometime just havent had the time. I used paint to make 256 Bitmap, do you have something better, seems CS3 wont do it
