I can´t flash BIOS from f5 to f11 Tags: Motherboards BIOS Flash Gigabyte Last response: July 11, 2012 7:35 PM in Motherboards Share MAXxIE July 3, 2012 9:48:17 AM I went to Gigabyte´s site and downloaded latest BIOS (I have f5-latest is f11) -put the file in a USB and followed instructions in the manual to Qflash. When I came to "select BIOS file" i got the message: Warning-incorrect file size! (3.55Mb) The f11 is an .exe file so I cant extract anything....-or can I? Hoping for an answer MAXxIE More about : flash bios f11 jaquith a c 717 V Motherboard July 3, 2012 12:50:57 PM Welcome to Tom's Forum! Yep you need to extract 'run' the (.EXE) downloaded file first to get to the (.ROM) file. Also, only use Q-Flash on Gigabyte MOBO's. m 0 l MAXxIE July 3, 2012 4:41:27 PM Thank u for answer! I talked with my son about it and we came to the conclusion it is a selfextracting .rar file... Thanks again for help! Btw-do you know of any good oc tut on i5 2500K? I have googled it for a while but dont seem to find any.. My prior rig had a PhII 1090T and that was a lot easier to oc! -Lots of parameters to keep in mind with Intel..

MAXxIE m 0 l MAXxIE July 11, 2012 7:35:29 PM Well i think i got the hang of it,but my processor seems to be made on a monday...:/ In order to get to 4.5 Ghz I had to raise Vcore to 1.38 and with temp´s at 73-80C (according to Realtemp) 3D Mark6 gave me 26119 points with temp´s 70-79C -i have a Gigabyte 6850-result before oc was 22700.. But I can´t (so it seems) oc in Turbomode?! -Then it requires 1.5 volts!..-a bit confusing... Should I be satisfied with this or is there things I have to look in to? (still lot´s of things I dont fully understand) MAXxIE m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources New Bios F11 for GA7-DXR?
