    If you are not experiencing any problems, a new BIOS will not gain you anything, especially performance, and flashing is a big risk to take for nothing gained. My advice: don't f with things. And if...

    I have read of others doing this with a G74 and being successful, but the G74 is not designed for the TDP=55Watt CPUs. You will stress the cooling system, and your processor will likely throttle back...
