Not a bad idea. It is not unheard of for a BIOS update to include bad settings or code.
I think I get it now. I'ts not only testing the RAM but giving the BIOS a good run through as well, huh?

I would use the latest drivers provided by Intel for the chipset. You MUST read the release notes on the Intel site, though. Sometimes, a driver update will appear to include your gear but it may not. The affected chipsets are listed in the release notes.
Nice, I found a newer driver for the X48. Guess I'll give this a go again. I'll make a nice fresh new Win7 image first!

Not exactly. Well, a little. You are doing nothing that tests the drive settings, for example.

Where are you in Montgomery County? I am at Tyson's Corner.

Good call, I guess I should run some drive, GPU, and CPU testers as well..

I'm in Gaithersburg... work in Frederick, though!
