    Default GA-EP45T-DS3R: Dumb Question

    Hey everyone.

    I'm very new to OC'ing comp's but have been reading up on things over the last couple of months and hope to start OC'ing my rig by January.

    I have one really dumb question that I've been unabel to understand through all of the forum threads and manuals I've read.

    When you flash you bios to a new rev. (for instance I would like to jump from F2 to F3 because my new CPU Q9550 E0 is supported in that rev.) will the HDD, memory, and CPU settings from my previous bios load up in the new bios rev automatically?

    Also, I haven't seen much talk about the GA-EP45T-DS3R's, what have your OC'ing experiences been like with this board and do you have any tips for a noob?

    Thanks in advance for the advice and help!

    Nope, all settings would be lost when you flash and load optimized defaults. Which is good anyway, because each time you flash you would need to use new settings as BIOS revisions change so do the settings and voltages required to be stable.

    Some BIOS's will as you can imagine be better then others

    I think you see less people with that board because everyone who has DDR3 knew X58 was coming out soon after P45T so more people waited for that

    Please DO NOT USE @BIOS!!! Here is a Qflash guide I wrote, if you have any flash questions feel free to ask here or there >>>>
