So as of right now I am trying to flash my bios so I can overclock my i5 2500k. I have the new bios update installed and ready on a usb flash drive. On the manufacturers website it says that the bios is a AMI bios but the downloaded package comes with AFUDOS, AFUWIN64 and 32. When I try to boot from the usb with the AFUDOS flash utility it says it cannot find the file or it is not valid. I am wondering if I am doing something wrong or the manufacturers made a mistake with the bios packages. Also it was a big mistake to buy a ECS mobo
Have you run the eBLU utility in Windows?
If you are having trouble locating a copy of the eBLU utility, one should be on the motherboard disk that came with your motherboard.
I don't have the motherboard's disk anymore. And the eBlu utility is not supported by my motherboard. The thing I need to know is what flash utility my motherboard has because in the "new" bios download it had AFUDOS, AFUWIN64, AFUWIN32 but none seem to work. The only reason I am flashing my bios is because I want to overclock my cpu but when I change the cpu multiplier it doesn't stay at my overclock(4.2ghz). I read up on another thread with a guy who had the same problem and he said that this was happening to him until he flashed the bios to an earlier one. Is it that I'm doing something wrong when overclocking or is it the motherboard?
But I seriously doubt that your inability to keep the CPU's clock multiplier raised is due to an older BIOS. More than likely you are using a Windows utility to overclock, yes? If you do your OC'ing in BIOS, you won't have that problem.
