Thanks for the tips. I totally agree with your cpu voltage concern. That is exactly why I want to overclock manually (the subject of my next question
). I read some articles about the ASUS auto-overclock about how it is achieved so I'm going to try it more manually after I update my BIOS.
I guess my concern was that when Windows loaded it looked for a specific ID# of some kind that corresponded to a specific BIOS configuration. And that after I updated BIOS, then switched it back to RAID before loading Windows, Windows would do something like "I can't find the RAID ID you set up, here's a blue screen of death".
So I guess its as simple as:
1) Open BIOS, click Default Settings (which should un-overclock it).
2) Reset it to RAID (#1 would set it back to AHCI).
3) Boot Windows.
4) Open the ASUS utility thingie. Use the Update BIOS functionality.
5) Follow the instructions, update the BIOS.
6) When it reboots, spam Delete.
7) In BIOS reset it to RAID.
8) Save and restart.
Is that it?
