Yeah, i flashed 1.8, it came with 1.3 from the factory, but maybe it got messed up somewhat. The first time i tried to flash, it failed because i used the windows flashing program, and i guess i had a program running because it hung up and i had to restart the machine, and obviously, it wouldn't post after that. So i had to get my brother's rig which has an ASRock 970 extreme3 and do a hot swap bios flash with my chip. The flash was successful, but i'm thinking it might not have done it right because i heard you're supposed to clear the CMOS before the flash etc which i wasn't able to do obviously. If nothing else works, i'll try reflashing the bios properly.
