    I believe I am confusing you. I was only able to save to floppy with the present Bios F8. I had a F10 then flashed what I thought was F8 but it was F9. I forgot to change the label to F9 and it had a F8 label. Then when I flashed F8 I too got the save profiles feature. But at the present time I am only able to save to floppy or USB when the flash drive is present. Due to the fact my SATAII_0 is part of my RAID. QFlash save profile utility does not recognize a drive unless it is a Fat12,16,or32 partitioned drive. You may want to try optimized defaults in F8 again? Just to be sure you did'nt miss it the first time. This does make overlooked changes to your bios settings. F9 and F10 bios has no save profile features yet. I don't believe.

    One more thing may help that RAM out would be to raise the DDR voltage from 1.8@1.95 to 2.0v or even 2.1v This is a simple increase in voltage that will bring that memory back into Gskills manufacturers specifications. It's in bios,
    Code:
    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    HT Link Frequency [Auto]
    VGA Core Clock control [Disabled]
    x VGA Core Clock (Mhz) 500

    Memory Controller Freq. (Note) [Auto] 1800Mhz
    CPU Host Clock Control [Auto]
    x CPU Frequency (MHz) 200
    PCIE Clock (MHz) [Auto]
    Set Memory Clock [Auto]
    x Memory Clock DDR 533
    DCTs Mode (Note) [Unganged]
    ******** System Voltage Optimized ********
    System Voltage Control [Auto] (change to manual
    x DDR2 Voltage Control Normal change to +.02

    I've had my voltages upped for quite awhile now. My system seems to depend absolutely upon these settings:

    DRAM DDR2 Timing Trfc (default AUTO 127.5ns) set to 327.5ns
    DDR2 Voltage +0.200V = 2.000V
    Northbridge +0.3V = 1.400V
    Delay for HDD = [maximum] 15 seconds

    I can also use Trfc 195ns, but it appears to be just slightly less stable, with no discernible speed difference.

    The DDR2 voltage fits your suggestion. An English friend suggested that near the beginning of my adventures, and it stopped crashes and bluescreens. I could go up one more notch to +0.300V, but that setting is in red lettering in the BIOS. Do you think I'd regret setting it that high?

    The NB has been set to 1.400 since a G.Skill tech told me I MUST do that to support my 8GB of RAM. And, yes, that made a very noticeable difference to the good.

    My computer requires the 15 second HDD delay. Without that, the system will POST twice, "going around" or recycling for a 2nd attempt at bootup.
    ________

    This evening I had a recycle, as a matter of factósomething I hate. I had no idea why, as I had attempted to set everything back to where it was last week. I thought I'd been successful, but evidently not.

    So, disgusted, I flashed the BIOS BACK AGAIN into the new BIOS f10 version. After all, my stored profiles were doing me no good, and I was fed up with the results of the last 2 days so I was going to go for Optimized Defaults anyway.

    So I took out the CMOS battery for maybe an hour while I soldered my in-case POST beeper-speaker. (We'll see how it sounds tomorrow morning.) And I did my Optimized Defaults, used F10 to save and go as far as the Windows multi-OS menu, then used Ctrl-Alt-DEL to return to the BIOS again and set things the way they have been most successful in the past.

    Boyohboyohboy. Where would we be without cantankerous BIOSes? They keep us off the streets, anyway.

    I received an email from GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY stating they will look into the F10 bios. That was fast less than 24 hrs. You would benifit with a Phenom or PhenomII cpu. Dual or Quad. I found that on mine the Northbridge voltage does not need any boost at all. In fact it gets to warm when it is increased causing me issues. Also I keep my Phenom running at stock. It has a memory controller in it that will allow for memory above 800Mhz. I believe with a Phenom CPU that northbridge voltage will be better at normal voltage on yours as well. It does not help with the stability of mine. The DDR voltage does. When I added 2 more Ram modules I then had to increase it to 2.0v Before that with 2 modules it run good on auto voltage. I must go now later Groonx2

    Do you think this would be an improvement? Would it accommodate my mobo and RAM, and maybe be more co-operative?

    (And, could I unlock it with this mobo?)

    I don't know about unlocking the cores with the board we are using. I know some are claiming to unlock them with a slight increase or decrease in some cases. http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/ga-m...09/index2.html

    I got a reply from Gigabyte Technology about the F10 Bios
    Here is what they said:
    Unfortunately the bios size is limited, when new updates are added it will require more space. In order to accommodate for the added new features. If you do not need the new features and wish to use the profile please revert back to the previous bios

    You may want to keep this in mind for future purchases for your motherboard.
    I believe the feature is nice but I noticed the @Bios Program on your Gigabyte driver DVD has a save option as well, and in Windows. I have heard that we should not use @biois to flash a bios. What could it hurt to use the save option. Then Flash the bios with the new Flashspi.exe program? Thats something I will need to look into later.

    Artdrivers, I think you are right about @BIOS. Actually I did use @BIOS to flash my BIOS a couple of months ago. It worked perfectly, but later I ran into grief when my British friend gave me a bad time for not doing as I'd been told. My bad; I'd forgotten. But certainly it was a perfectly noble flash experience. Ignorance is bliss.

    Umówould you like to have a go at the Impossible Question I've asked the longsuffering Mr. Lsdmeasap today? I'm looking for input at my new thread entitled AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black + GA-MA78GMS2H ?

    This afternoon I have taken EVERYTHING out of my system, and I was working with ONLY
    1 stick of RAM (2 GB)
    zero drives of any kind
    zero USB

    I tested 23 startups. Averages, after subtracting the highest and lowest for each category:

    (Each test on startup after 90 seconds holding in power button to release capacitors)

    RAM =
    1 stick = 2 GB = 45 seconds
    2 sticks = 4 GB, dual channel = 36 seconds
    4 sticks = 8 GB, dual channel = 42 seconds

    That is with NO HDDs, no opticals, no USBs. No Windows, in other words.

    I have done better when I've had a fully laden system and tweaked it. These tests were on OPTIMIZED DEFAULTS and F10 BIOS.

    Um—would you like to have a go at the Impossible Question
    I know that the motherboard GA-MA78GM-S2H rev.1.1 will indeed support the AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black + But the south bridge on the board is a AMD SB700 which does not offer ACC which is what you would need to unlock the locked cores. I had a Phenom 3 8450 and found this out so I sold it on Ebay and purchased the 9600 The thing about this is the ACC is offered in the SB710 and SB750. We just missed it. I certainly hope this clears up some of your questions.
