    I can see that and that's why I think it makes sense to drop support of ES chip on mainstream boards. But for ROG board, whereas the board was built for power users who stop at nothing to eek that...

    Ok just returned from the service centre and the puzzle is solved. My CPU turns out to be an engineering sample, which partly explains why it was reasonably overclockable. Key is that the new...

    Can't do that as the PC simply won't post! Do you really think the overclocking on the discrete video card would screw up the BIOS flash? Afterall it's instigated by the software within...

    Ok now I'm beginning to think that my board is somohow defective given the continuous problem I have with BIOS flashing... So far the ONLY BIOS that survived are the 0208 (the shipping BIOS) and...

    The interesting bit is that I noticed the zip filesize for 0403 INCLUDING IRST 10.6.0.1002 is over 14Mb but when I looked at my 0650 zipfile it's less than 3Mb! I wonder why the need to bundle IRST...

    Can't quite tell from your picture as it's not very clear. These new boards support PWM fans, i.e. 4 pin whereas the motherboard will try to control the fan speed. However, it's still backward...

    I'm not attached to the incident at all. I'm just annoyed at the fact that there isn't any way around my problem and any wrong flash in the future would send me all the way back to the service...
