I have a Gigabyte GA-X38-DS5 which fails to overclock dosn't matter what I do, just dosn't boot afterwards. I've heard that people with this board have exactly the same problem with the same CPU (Intel Q6600 with G0 stepping) but on the Gigabyte web site theres a BIOS update for this board that fixs the problem with overclocking that CPU and people have reported it overclocks lovly once you've done the BIOS update.
Now I would like to do this but that would mean flashing the BIOS, which as we all know is very very risky for so many reasons. The board does have dual BIOS so if I updated the main BIOS and it failed could I copy the back up BIOS data on to the main BIOS and everything will be alright again? As I have no idea whats so ever (I could ring Gigabyte to find out but I'd much rather ask here first )
But then there always BootBlock Recovery but I don't know what thats like and if it would even fix a badly enough flashed BIOS... anyone know if it's totally fail safe?
In the event that I flash the BIOS and it went wrong, do you guys think I could ring Gigabyte and they would help be sort it all out? I'm not so sure...
I really need some help and advise on this one guys as I would like to overclock and not screw up my board lol.
Thank you all in advance
