    Default Official F6 Bios for GA-X48T-DQ6 when?

    I've been logging into Gigabytes bios page for months now waiting for the official F6 bios to be releasead for the GA-X48T-DQ6 board and yet it's still in beta mode. Does anyone have any idea if the official release is anytime soon? Cheers.

    No need to wait, since there has been little or no issues presented with the current beta (F6e) it will just be renamed to F6 final anyway. So if you want you can flash to it now instead of waiting, beta is safe to use, it is all I ever use myself

    Thanks Lsdmeasap, after the fiasco with the F5 release I'm more cautious than ever, but if I don't see it soon IĶI flash the beta, Cheers!

    I would say you would be fine to flash, go ahead.

    What fiasco did you have with F5?

    It killed a bunch of motherboards, didn't it? I remember looking into upgrading the bios when I bought my dq6 about a year ago but all I found was posts about it how it had killed several boards. I guess thats what Vertigon meant.

    No, I highly doubt that. More than likely what you saw was a bunch of users killing their boards by flashing with @BIOS

    I could be wrong though since that was so long ago, but I doubt it. Even if a bad flash happened with a corrupt BIOS or otherwise it would be easy to recover from anyway

    Several users bricked thier boards when the official F5 bios was released but Gigabyte was good enough to RMA them at no charge. It didn't happen to me, but it almost did, thankfully I logged onto tweaktown minutes before dowloading the bios.

    I flashed to F6e yesterday and it worked just fine (using usb flash drive option), be sure to read the Qflash guide by Lsd first thou.

    The only issue I had was that it didn't find my drive in the Qflash so I had to do "Load optimized" before doing the QFlash. Didn't matter thou since I still had to redo the BIOS settings afterwards.

    Ahh well Gigabyte always will RMA for a flashed BIOS failure as far as I know, all they do is reflash the BIOS and send your board back to you. No repairs are needed in those cases really

    Badpop, sounds like you were using Fail Safe before you loaded optimized to see your USB stick? Be sure you are always starting from Optimized Defaults then save and apply/rebooot back to the BIOS then make any changes you need to.

    Never use Fail Safe
