    someone wants to charge you $60 just to flash your BIOS? :rofl:

    you could order a cpu for much less than that (in fact newegg.com has a 1700+ T-bred for $44 (US) and no shipping)...switch the cpu with your current one, flash the BIOS, switch the cpu back and keep the cheap one as a backup :thumb:

    Ok, a buddy of mine had a 1300 athlon kicking around. I install it, boot up, and I get the post screen. However, as soon as I got the post screen, it immediately went black. I try to reboot, and no video. It is getting farther than it was before however. So now I am clearing cmos once again and gonna go from there. I am kicking myself for throwing away my pci video cards.

    if you have a jumper on the mobo for setting default fsb, make sure it is set to 100 for the 1300+

    Clearing cmos didn't work.

    The default setting on this mobo is 133/166. Thats what I had the jumper set to when I initially started it up. I have tried it at 100/133 and still no luck.

    I've been reading some stuff on nforcehq.com forums and apparently this is a common problem with the 8rda mobos.

    Gonna have to rma it I guess.

    After further research, Nforce mobos specifically have a problem with 3200 and up Corsair memory. Apparently the timing is too agressive. Almost all the other mobo manufacturers have fixed this except Epox. Now I have to find some lower grade memory.

    sorry to hear that, but if you don't have a use for that memory, i'd be happy to take it off your hands :D
