    What will happen if i try to flash BIOS from P35-DS3R?
    I currently have mirror set on JMicron controller, but i want to try connecting it to ICH9, to see if it can run 3 drives or 2+spare.

    I also found modded BIOS P35DS3MOD_11_13_12.15D here, it is F15D (latest available on Gigabyte site is F14, i do not know where i found the F14c and i wonder where F15D came from).
    Will my RAID array get broken if i flash it?
    The notes say:
    Updated with...
    Jmicron 1.07.28
    Realtek 2.51

    Thanks!
    Okay unmodified F15d seems to run fine, but the mod makes nasty beeps on boot and reboots the computer twice before it is able to boot.
    I think i will keep the F14c, it was running fine with Q6600 2.4GHz overclocked to 3.33GHz...

    Edit: There is one advantage of the F15d - the ICH9 SATA ROM is newer, so it does faster disk detection on boot.
    I still wonder if is possible to change ICH9 to ICH9R by flashing different ROM, but i will not mess more with it, because it would be bad if i brick it.

    Perhaps you wanna try this :

    GA-P35-DS3 BIOS F15d mod

    Modified with :

    Jmicron SATA RAID 1.06.59 to 1.07.28
    Realtek LAN 2.09 to 2.56

    Edit :
    You'd better reset CMOS when you flash new BIOS version cause OC's settings can change.

    I don't think you can apply DS3R BIOS to DS... another opinion ?

    Again, one beep when it shuts down (???), two beeps at startup and it does not boot when i overclock it to same values like F14c (370MHz FSB).
    I am aware i should clear CMOS, it might be the reason, but the switch is hidden under graphic card, which I am too lazy to remove. :)

    Thanks anyway, but the main reason i was looking at mods was RAID on ICH9, i do not have the guts to flash DS3R BIOS to it, because it is my old gaming rig which will go to my sister.
    It was running fine with F14c for the last 4 years or so, i will not mess with it more to keep it stable.
    Shame i saved some bucks by not getting R version and getting Win7 Home Premium, which does not support software RAID. :)
    I am putting the old 250GB drives to RAID, because based on SMART, they have bad sectors and 4.5 years of run.
    3rd as backup for the RAID.
    When it dies, it would be time to get her SSD. :)

    BTW i have Samsung 840 EVO in my new rig and it is lightning fast with the Rapid mode.
    Forced me into looking if i can speed up the old one with some ReadyBoost memory, i might get USB3 PCIE x1 card and throw USB3 stick (or two) into it, should work.
    Also my new mobo (Z87-HD3) is a compomise - i want LPT port for external display and this was the only GB board suitable (except some mATX crap).

    Thanks again!

    Can't you clear CMOS with a jumper that you can reach? My CMOS battery is hidden under my GPU on the X79-UP4 but the jumper can be accessed fairly easily, in case that's any help.

    Virtualfred, I'm up and running with f4g modded BIOS, I installed it with FPT because I already had it setup. It flashed the first time and booted right up. I'm running a mild overclock of 4.3 on my i7-3820 at the moment, haven't tested BCLK yet but that's not really your department anyway, everything I've run looks good.

    OK, i can also do a F14c mod but i didn't find any link for it...

    Great ! am i wrong or it's the first BIOS which is working since F3u ?

    No need (but i have the F14c saved), i will keep it stock, no RAID on ICH9 anyway.
    And i doubt there would be any performance or stability improvement, i seen the JMicron changelog and it does not seem significant for my use:
    ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/SATA_Con...ase%20note.txt
    The Realtek is NIC firmware i guess, not audio. :)
    I have no issues with LAN connection...

    The clear jumper is even more close to VGA then the battery. :)

    Thanks for trying, i guess the problem might be on my side with the clear.

    Booted up perfectly. Thank you for the mod.

    Testing my memory out @ 1.5V with Prime95 right now. Needed it at 1.54V with prior BIOS'.

    All is nice and stable @ 1.5V, but Turbo Boost isn't working.

    Well the issue was with installation using Q-Flash, @BIOS, and EFI Flash, as all of the programs were outdated compared to this new batch of BIOS, but once I learned about FPT and the FTK I was able to flash them. But they were semifunctional even if a user got them installed, these are much better and F3g includes new update tools which solves the problem.

    So to answer your question, yes it's the first one to work correctly in my humble opinion.

    Thanks VirtualFred :)

    And thanks to MacG32 for sharing with me the info to finally get a correct version of FPT that was compatible with my rig and BIOS.
