Thanks! I especially like the "3.) Solved hang-up at post C1(h), when memory over clock." change. I'll try when I get off work.
Cheers, m8!

argh man I always see these when I get to work now I have to wait a full day before I can try it! mmmmm Thanks ET! :thumbsup:

EPoX Tech 30th January, 2003 10:38 AM

You know where to see it first - EPoX UK homepage or here :)

Hey ET, when I go to flash my 8RDA standard with the image from 8RD13129.BIN (from 8rd1.zip) it tells me that the file's part number does not match my own part number, then lists a MAC and NV Lan address (you know, those two settings in the bios). It asks if I wish to proceed... should I?

I did load all defaults (no OC) before flashing. Using the ALT+F2 method.

Can't wait to try this one... I really like my 8RDA+ but that 'C1' problem is/was? a real pisser. :D

drummerjohn 30th January, 2003 02:15 PM

No problems here - works fine for me.

toXicbluE 30th January, 2003 02:30 PM

Ah, great, i wonder what Nforce-fixes has been made with "Update ROMSIP & BPL "? :)

And:
"3.) Solved hang-up at post C1(h), when memory overclock."
What does that mean? Will it never hang after memory OC now, or what , lol, this can't be :)


But it's nice to see Epox care so much and release more bioses in 2 months than others in years :)

Running good for me here. Never had any real issue with the last bios though..:thumbsup:

Genius 30th January, 2003 06:06 PM

Hey AMD Fanatic, were you able to flash the standard 8RDA bios with the one from 8rd1.zip? Did it give you any message such as I described above?

Genius 30th January, 2003 06:49 PM

Got impatient and flashed anyways. Seems it was just detecting the stuff in my previous bios for non-existant hardware (i.e. Realtek ethernet). After flashing I noticed the settings had been removed from the bios. Good stuff.

Thanks Epox (ET).

QuickDeath 30th January, 2003 08:32 PM

Iuhuuuu!!!
Finally C1 problem solved. I had to reset the bios countless times because of that....

DisposableHero 30th January, 2003 09:02 PM

everything good here

Robin B 30th January, 2003 09:06 PM

Still running C31 not one singel problem so far.
