    Default Bios question

    New Build:
    Case: ANTEC 1200 (Three 120 mm front and two 120 MM rear plus 200 mm top fans)
    PSU: Corsair HX1000W
    MB: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DQ6 v1.0. Bios F12
    CPU: INTEL E8600 3.33 GHz Wolfdale. Eo Stepping
    COOLER: THERMALRIGHT 12O mm Ultra Extreme (TRUE) Lapped, Scythe S-FLEX SFF223F
    Memory: CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2X2GB) DDR2 1066 PC 8500C5DF
    5-5-5-15 2T. Cooled with Corsair memory cooler
    HD: SEAGATE BARRACUDA 7200.22 SATA 1TB X 2
    VIDEO: ASUS EAH4870 DK/HTDI/1GD5<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    DVD BURNER: SAMSUNG 22X SATA SH-S223F<o:p></o:p>
    BLU-RAY READER: PIONEER Blu-Reader SATA BDC-2202<o:p></o:p>

    Are the BIOS revisions backward compatable? I FLASHED to F12 but did not do F6, F7, F9, or F11. Am I okay or do I need to add the others? Also Gigabytes web site does not list the F13a BIOS. Is the one on this site legitamite? What does it do?

    Will want help with OC later.

    Thanks.
    Paul

    Yes, you can flash any version anytime. Just be sure you load optimized defaults and save/apply/reboot after each flash

    Yes the Beta's here are directly from Gigabyte, as for the change logs per beta's they are not posted anywhere so I could not say?
