    Default Should I reset BIOS - not flash

    Recently built a new rig. Had issues in the begining - ram voltages, hdd setup & audio panel wiring. now that I figured everything out over a week or so, im debating whether to reset the bios or not.

    When I first got started, I didnt set the bios to load optimized configuration. I would assume that the mb has a slight learning curve. Im just concerned if it picked up some bad habits during my week of trial and error.

    came flashed with F11

    On a new build I always clear CMOS and load optimized defaults, then go from there.
