And yes, I did go into the updated BIOS and try to set the memory speed -- and when I did that, the mobo crashed on boot.Since then, Gigabyte has removed that newer version of the BIOS from their download page -- and the latest one there now is the same "old" one that I'm using.
I at least want to have the most recent BIOS running for the machine (for optimal performance)...Obviously I'm really cautious about all of this so would really appreciate any help or advice?cheers Scam Computer type PC/Desktop System Manufacturer/Model Number Gladiator X8320-HD Piledriver Eight-Core OS Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit CPU AMD FX-8320 3.50GHz (4.00GHz Turbo) Socket AM3 8-Core Proce Motherboard GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 AMD 760G (Socket AM3 ) Micro-ATX Mot Memory 16GB Corsair (2x8192) 1333MHz DDR3 Dual-Channel Memory (32GB Graphics Card Radeon HD 7850 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Monitor(s) Displays AOC 936swa Hi, Its a good idea to be cautious.Could anyone give me a link to where I can just download an update please?I am not sure and want to know if I need to update my BIOS. Windows 7 Forums is an independent web site and has not been authorized, sponsored, or otherwise approved by Microsoft Corporation.I made the mistake of doing that on my Gigabyte mobo (GA 890GPA UD3H) and suddenly, my 1600-speed memory would only run at 1033!Fortunately, like I always do, I made a backup of the previous BIOS, so I reflashed using that, and my memory worked at full speed again.Please check on your motherboard to see whether its a Rev. If it is, then that is indeed the BIOS to download and install, and that is the correct site.Regards, Golden Computer type PC/Desktop System Manufacturer/Model Number Golden Mk. x64 CPU Intel i7 860 @ 2.80 GHz O/C'ed to 4.0GHz Motherboard Gigabyte P55A-UD3R Rev.1.Settings such as Wake on LAN, Wake on ring, Power on by keyboard or mouse.I'd check these settings to make sure they are disabled before flashing my BIOS.
