    The F3M is the modded bios the F5 is what you want the fixed bios.
    Please be sure you download the updated Bios for your motherboard.

    I already use bios F5. I only wondered if the bios F3M has any better features or not...

    This is where it gets confusing.

    Gigabyte have a different naming to what the BIOS reports.

    Example: F5C (Gigabyte) reports as F3L
    which I am currently running on the same motherboard as you...

    Now, if you want to simplify things, on the Gigabyte driver DVD you can use the @BIOS application which actually works perfectly.

    When I setup my PC I needed the latest BIOS so it initialized the CPU properly to 3.2GHz instead of 800MHz per core :P. I just used it from within Windows and it worked first time.

    Plus getting RAM to operate at 1600MHz as easily done manually with the BIOS. But it is more difficult to get right!

    I found a way to get any 1600MHz modules to operate at 1600MHz, all you need to know are it's timings and recommended pd for 1600MHz [Example: 9-9-9-24 @ 1.7v].
    Through AMD Overdrive since that will automatically set the North Bridge Multiplyer to x12 from x10, increase the core pd etc for you it saves you a bit of hassle.

    You have to write and import a memory profile to do that, if you can't use those options you have to write an entire system profile which is a little more annoying.

    For more on that I have already posted how to do this on the AMD Game forums and on my own website.

    Hope that helps...
