Hi,

As posted recently I'm trying to overclock my Intel Q6600 on a Gigabyte GA-X38-DS5 everytime I over clock it it wont boot up again resulting in having to clear the CMOS. So I was thinking I might as well try a BIOS update, now I know it's risky so I wanted to know if having two BIOS's "Dual BIOS" will save me if say the power goes off durin the update or something...

Anyone know?

Cheers all :)

According to this it should save you if the first BIOS is damaged.

Hi, just want to ask something. When your overclock fail, did you try to reset cmos by shorting the jumper or just wait the pc to reboot itselffor a few attemps (probably 5-6 failed attemps) until it boot normally at default clock? (not default voltage though)
