    lol and what about to do what the error message wants from you ...  can you please instal the intel ME drivers ?? if  you dont have particular DVD ill bet you can download from manufacturer pages ;)

    you must be trolling me or you spent too much time with Dziarson lol

    of course I did that, all drivers are installed

  2. I was trying to run TurboV Core from first post on Asus Prime Z490-A, but no matter what, it dies with a message "Please install Intel MEI Driver from ASUS SUPPORT DVD" (caps preserved). Anyone has an idea what might be going on? I tried a couple OS-es, seems like mobo is not supported, but I never saw TurboV Core as being Apex-only.

    I thought most benchers knew this has been possible for a while now. Here is the "0094" bios I modded to work on M9A XP w/ HT back in 2018

    Creative.ROM 16 MB · 7 downloads

    Thanks, I didn't know that, but I've sat last months under the rock, so you know...


    Update - it doesn't support 9100f :(

    I think the recent Windows 10 update automatically turned on Hide Extensions for Known File Types. *laughs while crying*

    Tell me more, Notepad adding .txt extension even if you save as *.* and provide actual extension for your .bat file is a work of some evil madman.

    Check if your mems are dirty, it helped me,  but just a bit, 4133 1t is bootable but unstable.

    99% certain you only need the bios pad short mod, rename the bios Creative.ROM, and use the correct bios flashback usb port.  What usb stick you use is important too. All my Adata sticks work for bios flashback or bootable usb purposes but my Sandisk's do not work for this

    USB needs to be FAT16 or 32 without strange partitions, and my lesson learnt from last week's adventures is - first unzip, then rename, I tried flashing with zip on M8H and it stopped after light blinked 3 times.

    @ducegt Bios pad short is required, for socket mod you can either solder board or CPU.

  6. I am testing the mod on my M9A with i3 8100 and I'm stuck with 18 post code, tried BIOS 0094 from Alex, now trying modded MXA 1602... 1602 does not work with XP?

    There is quite long (3-5 secs) 00 code after 55 which might be misleading, there were couple reboots, but I'm in OS now :) non-K OC is not that fun anymore although :)

    Update - I could OC and play with mems, but cache multi is stuck at 33 no matter what, and turboV core throws an exception when I switch to clock tab. Got a decent geekbench and xtu result, but mocf beats m9a since it clocks cache.

    Update #2 - in my case if I apply too much oc, it fails with post code 15, after which a reboot is stuck at 00. It's fixed by powering down completely (unplug psu and wait 30 secs) before next attempt.

  7. For DDR1, I needed to bin CPUs for better IMC, only 2 out of 40 could handle 420+ speeds. CPU needs to be warm but not hot. Board of choice for me is DFI NF4 Ultra-D or SLI-D - don't know what kind of freak of nature does CN posses (speaking about his TCCD-loving Expert)

    For DDR2, easiest board to go for high mem clocks is Gigabyte EP45-UD3P or UD3R, don't know what magic juice is inside, but these boards allow to boot and clock mems which dead on other boards. I also tried DFI DK P35 and it was OK (has volts up to 3.25) and some guys who appeared in this thread used also different boards - P5Q for example or some X38 boards.

    For DDR4 I have mixed feelings - I had a number of B-die kits and none of them responded to cold properly, so I'm a little hesitant about freezing it and I suspect there might be only some IC batches or PCB revisions that allow for it (or both).
