Updating bios for gigabyte

The Radeon RX 460 is considered a solid choice in terms of price/performance.

minifan blowing through northbridge Yes, a BIOS flash is always a risk and should only be done if a user knows the risk and accepts it.

If you HAVE to flash to support your CPU you are using then it would be a must.

Intend to build a cheap Ubuntu box to run alongside my workstation to avoid internet exposure of my windoze, so will probably buy a cheap CPU for it in advance, just to do the flash & drop it back into the box for a couple months... Of course "SOME" BIOS's will support a unsupported (In the list) CPU good enough for you to flash to the one you need.

But this is not very often the case and you would be correct in saying that he may need a Older CPU to flash with.

Beta BIOS's should also be taken with far more precaution as they are in Beta stage which of course means their could be issues worse then the BIOS you are using now.

And of course please do take a minute and read the Qflash Guide I wrote and if you feel anything is missing feel free to PM me to add it in.

It's far too risky IMO after my experiences and other people's as well. They should not even have been released IMO and should be withdrawn.

Have you noticed how Gigabyte releases Bioses and then replaces the Bioses with different files with the same name and version number?

If you are not familiar with beta BIOS testing, then please only flash the recommended release BIOSes that are posted on the GIGABYTE website, as only release BIOSes have passed compatibility testing.
