Ok I found my mobo box, i got the exact mobo revision, so i will grab the bios file, F7 and give it a go. There is also a beta F8 bios, but I don't think I should mess with beta.

I found the bios file on gigabyte site, i d/led it.It is an .exe file, do I use @bios to point to it, or do I just run it as administrator? Because when i try with @bios, it complains that the bin size does not match or something. :/

I noticed the bios update file is 7zip, should I unzip it first, or do I just leave it and attempt to update via @bios, or unzip then ....oh lord I am starting to lose my mind here

if you have something like a easy bios tool you should be able to open it where ever you downloaded and extracted the file to

The file should come in zip form ,I would extract it to the Desktop

Use the easy Bios tool if you have one select extract file on desktop and it should start writing on the screen in dos mode

After that it should ask to restart I run ASUS by the way I heard they are kind of similar Bios


Is it a straight up EXE file ?

If you simply swapped the modules over then the Mushkins would be running at the Corsairs timings.

Have you tried manually adjust the timings to 9-9-9-24?

Well this isn't going to work. I followed the directions I found, you have to unzip the bios file to a folder then put on a fat32 thumbdrive..but I won't even get there because after I unzip, I get this diagnostic message -> Data Error in '97AUD3.F7. File id broken. Now there is no way in hell I will try and attempt to update my bios with a broken file. @bios pulls its bios files from the same place I imagine, no wonder @bios was giving me errors while trying to update to F7. So I guess I am stuck with ram that claimed to be cl9 but ended up being cl11, and I can't even return it. Thanks for your time and I am sorry I wasted it.

Can you elaborate, because I did put the mushkin in the place of the corsair, does that have anything to do with my issue?
