    Default Can someone check if Cmos settings are Ok

    Hello all,

    Well, thanks to Lsdmeasap for article on how to flash...i just did it and it was a pleasureable experience!

    However, just after it performed the flash..these messages arose..
    checksum 0300
    are you sure to update Bios?
    i replied yes. and a further message arose saying "copy bios completed - pass"
    But is that checksum message something of concern?


    Also,
    under PC HEALTH STATUS of CMOS setup pages, i have..
    vcore 1.204v
    ddr18v 1.888v
    +3.3v 3.296v
    +12v 11.858v

    current sys temp = 41 c
    current cpu temp = 33-34 c
    cpu fan = 936 rpm

    (i only have 1 case fan which sucks air out)
    cpu warning temp = Disables
    cpu fan fail warning = Dis
    cpu smart fan control = auto

    Is there any issues here i should address?
    cheers

    Yeap, checksum message is normal. If you ever see less then 4 characters do not flash with that BIOS and go back and download a new BIOS file

    Just to reassure, yes, that checksum message is normal. It is not mentioned in the manual for the motherboard, but if you find the full Q-Flash manual on the Gigabyte website it is mentioned there. Stupid thing is that Gigabyte doesn't seem to publish the checksums for the BIOS files, so you can't check the value when it is report by Q-Flash.
    Intel E8400 E0 3GHz @ 4.0GHz (444x9) stable (provisionally), max 4.4GHz (489x9), Zalman CNPS 9700 (core temp 46c @ max load @ 4.0GHz),
    Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G F5b BIOS + 40mm fan on MCH, Geil Black Dragon DDR2-PC8500C5 (2x1GB) @ 1066MHz (444x2.4)
    Sapphire ATI HD 4850 Dual Slot Cooler (64c @ max load), Dell 3007WFP 30" (2560x1600)
    Seagate 500GB SATA2 7200rpm 32MB cache, Samsung 500GB SATA2 7200rpm 16MB cache, LG GH22LP20 22x DVD+/-RW

    Ya, they are not published but you can use a Checksum program to check the sum before you go into qflash and be sure the same is reported before you flash. That would help a little incase of a error while loading the file.

    Just be sure it is always 4 characters
