    Did you try to Qflash with just the .Fxx BIOS file on a floppy? You may have better luck

    The above settings are too tight for 4x1, and would be fine for 2x1, except no MCH voltage would be needed and trfc can come down to 42 or so.

    Here is what I woudl advise for 4x1GB >>>

    Here, try this for 3.6 with all 4 sticks >>>>

    Code:

    heavyfeul, do you get the fdd error just reading the drive or only when actually trying to have qflash find the new bios file?

    If it's the latter, did you make sure to extract the bios file first?

    ^^^^ Yes, this is correct! ^^^^

    You must extract the .Fxx BIOS file onto your floppy, not the .exe. All you need is the actual BIOS file, not the flash or batch file. >>>

    Something is wrong with the floppy drive. Could be the drive, connection to mobo, power, not sure.

    Anyway...I flashed to the new f9 firmware with a USB key drive I had laying around.

    I then added the the last two sticks and changed the settings as described above.

    Right now Windows is stable and I did play about 30 minutes of TF2 last night without a hitch.

    I still need to do a lot of testing before I start tweaking further, but so far so good. I plan on running the Bioshock and Company of Heroes demos as soon as I can, then moving on to some stress and memory tests.

    Also, some of the values listed by you guys are not available on my board and some entries as well. For instance, I only have "CPU Reference" and no "CPU Reference 2" entry under Motherboard Voltage.

    I will post specifics on the differences, once I get a chance to read my notes. I'm guessing it is just the difference between different p45 boards and that the BIOS settings template is a general template, not specific to the GA-EP45-DS3L.

    Great to hear you got flashed without issue, and that you are now up and running smoother!

    Things mentioned in the template may be CPU or Ram dependant, so if you do not see something it just means your hardware does not support/use/offer it. Like CPU Reference 2, or XMP ram options. Just ignore what you do not see. You can Double check to be sure if you should be seeing a setting by using the Hidden settings hotkey Ctrl + F1 on the MAIN Page of the BIOS, the screen will flash then do back into MIT and check again. But you should not have hidden settings in the MIT Section

    Y, it is like you said it is a General P45 table, with all hardware and board options shown just incase as some CPU's do "this" and others do not, same applies with Ram.
