yea i didnt mention everything b4, cause i was thinking my post was getting too long lol.
i already had CPU-Z and i checked the date b4 i flashed it. it sayd 7/14/04 or soemthing like it. after i flashed it(or so i think i flashed it) it started up. i cleared the CMOS, loaded optimal settings. booted into OS. and windows went threw detecting all the mobo hardware as if it were new. i rebooted and went to cpu-z, and the bios version date was exactly the same... the bios version date that i DLed is something like 1/15/05
now i guess another question is.... could i have FLashed it rong, and still have my system working fine??
EDIT: o yea, its a soyo SY-P4RC350
if you flashed the bios, it'll most likely look the same
yea i know it prolly wont look diff. but theres a version # on the bottom that says something like v2.65(i think, for example.
would the version # remain the same aswell?
