    If you don't have a RAID than it's very simple, just copy the BIOS file to the USB Flash Drive follow the instructions in that link, load optimized defaults after boot and make any changes you made in BIOS before like disk order etc.

    To run the memory at DDR-1333 with stock FSB make the following changes in M.I.T after loading optimized defaults:
    Code:
    DRAM Performance Control
    Performance Enhance ------------------- : [Standard]
    System Memory Multiplier -------------- : [4.00B] <<< may try 4.00D/A/C
    DRAM Timing Selectable ---------------- : [Manual]
    
    Standard Timing Control
    CAS Latency Time -------- ?? ---------- : [8]
    tRCD  ------------------- ?? ---------- : [8]
    tRP --------------------- ?? ---------- : [8]
    tRAS  ------------------- ?? ---------- : [20]
    
    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core ---------------- 1.100V ------- : [1.2]  << up to 1.24v if needed
    
    DRAM
    DRAM Voltage ------------ 1.500V ------- : [1.8] <<< verify voltage on the modules sticker
    Setting tRD (Static tRead Value in BIOS, Performance Level in MemSet) on both channels to 7 or even 6 for better performance may be possible. You may try it after testing the above changes.
    It is recommended to run at least one pass of memtest86+ before starting windows.

    To capture a single window, make it active (front and hilited) and press Alt+PrintScreen.
    Window 7's Paint has a built in crop function: select the desired area, then crop.

    I don't know how far you would be able to push the Q9400 with the "L" board, or the CPU cooler, but 400+ FSB should be possible
