    Hello. I have a couple of questions. First, i recently added a P5Q Pro to my system and it has the original, 0503 bios installed. I would like to update my bios, but i have never done such a thing and, i must be honest here, i am scared i will mess things up. Now to my questions-how stable is the bios "P5Q PRO mBIOS 08003"? I know Ketxxx posted it here, but nobody has really commented on actual stability. And secondly, could someone explain to me, in very simple and understandable language, how i can "flash" my bios? I have no floppy-is that a problem? Any and all help would be greatly helpful-THANKS:)

    Don't bother with mBIOS 08003, grab mBIOS 1004, its far superior to any previous mBIOS and any official BIOS. As for how to upgrade your BIOS, its very easy. Install a program called Asus Update (its on the CD that came with your MB) extract mBIOS 1004 from its archive with something like winrar, launch Asus Update and select "Update BIOS from file". Browse to where you extracted mBIOS 1004, after a moment Asus Update will pop up with a window with various information - its basically all jibberish to normal users so don't worry. Just click the "flash" button and wait for a window to pop up that says your system needs to restart. Thats it, done!

    Oh and about stability, I tested all mBIOSes myself and currently am using mBIOS 1004, its rock solid stable and I'm running a pretty heavy OC (E4400 @ 425x8, DRAM @ 1066MHz)

    Thanks for the fast response:toast:....Ketxxx, which overclocking thread are you talking about? Is there an extra thread for overclocking the P5Q-PRO? If so, could you please post a link? I am new to overclocking(i told myself i do not want to overclock), but with the system that i built, my curiosity is getting the better of me. I think my system has pretty good overclocking potential, and before i mess things up, i need to inform myself first. Thanks:)

    Hey Ket, what are the changes to the BIOS 0901 compared to the 0703? on the P5Q, if you don't mind me asking. Also do you think I'll find any OCing info for the my board on the P45 OC thread?

    First of all, thanks for putting up with my noob questions:) :toast:Here are a couple more: If i decide NOT to overclock, do you still recommend mbios1004 or would beta 0901 or original 0703 be better? Also, are the default settings for mBios1004 recommended for NON-overclocking? or do some defaults need to be changed?

    Defaults in mBIOS 1004 are the same as the generic BIOS Asus put out, even if not overclocking, I recommend mBIOS 1004. It resolves MANY memory compatibility issues.

    Here ya go CrAsHnBuRnXp, one P5Q Dlx mBIOS. mBIOS is based on beta 1102, one hell of an upgrade from the official 0803!

    Ketxxx, I just read your "read me" file included with mBios 1004 and I have another question-doesn't removal of the battery and the clearing of CMOS reset the bios to its original version? I thought that happened to me with my old board(p4c800-e deluxe) once.

    Clearing CMOS does not set the BIOS to its original version. What it does is set all the settings in the BIOS to their factory defaults.

    Just had an idea Ketxxx. Would it be worth starting a new thread called:

    "Get yer modded P5Q series bios's here"

    or something?

    Then you could have all the latest mBios kept up on the front page and any you haven't done people can request?

    Even if you dont start a new thread do you think you could keep the first post up-to date with your latest bios's? as this thread gets bigger it will get harder to find them.

    Also what changes have you made in this mbios? I'm running the untouched 1102 beta bios atm.

    The changes from vanilla 1102 are an updated P6 table to support more CPUs and replaced the memory table with the one from the P5Q Premium. Dunno how that would help Dlx owners much as any P5Q above the Pro is more or less uncrippled, but if your system cant POST at a certain memory frequency you know is good, then give the mBIOS a shot.
    bugmenot says thanks.
