AW9D Max revival
After several months of almost no pc contact I pleased myself with an Intel Conroe E6600 + Aw9D Max. Running almost two months at stock speed, I wanted to flash a new BIOS.
After several years of BIOS flashing I got hit by a freezing computer. Damn, but due to the friendly people @ Abit I got a new BIOS chip in less than a week :ws: .
But, as I'm not the very patient guy and don't have the right material to replace a bios chip I kinda damaged the BIOS housing. And with some evil forces inside me I felt the urge to wreck the housing.
See for yourself:
But after a night of good sleep I realized I've been a very bad boy and felt an urge to make it up with myself. I tried a bit and find out that if I pushed on the BIOS chip while booting, my motherboard was very satisfied :D.
I could'n believe it, putting some force on the BIOS chip did the trick. Sure this isn't for daily use, but I wanted to bench since I felt so lucky :D.
Here are my results: with one stick of DDRII, a triple RAID Raptor setup and a USB hard disk to save my screenies, not the most ideal setup:
E6600 cooled by Zalman 9500
AW9DMAX BIOS 14.A02
1 stick Elpida DDR800 DDRII
Score is not bad, going the phase change way again soon?
No, going to look for other motherboard soon :D , this isn't the ideal way of computing :D.
Just a needle to remove the bioschip was fine, i don't understand how you could damage the housing so badly. Brute force i guess:D
Easypanic is back doing some oc's ^^
Screwdriver did its bad magic :D
Lol, got frustrated? :D
Anyway, nice to see easypanic back in action
this gives a whole new meaning to "press button to start computer"
very nice overclock, wish my Core 2 mobo went that high up
solder de bios to the housing
I asked geoffrey to do it, apparently he can solder good.
He's my first hope :)
I demand pics+article: "reviving the Abit AW9D after crushing" :D
