    Yes rename the bios file or edit the runme.bat to have the correct bios name to use.
    The beta has update from my understandings.
    I don't think they made any Q9550 E0 steppings so I was told. My Q9550 is a C1.

    They did.

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Backup the officaL 14 somewere, then right click m704b.bin & name it M704B_14.BIN.
    If offical M704B_14.BIN is still in the folder it will need to overwrite, so its just easier to delete or move it somewere else out of the way.

    Re: **Official ABIT IX38 QuadGT Review/Overclock/Guide Thread**

    Hello.
    I recently dug my abit ix38 quad gt out of the garage( was stored there a year) and I cannot remember any settings for anything.
    I also have a few questions.

    1. There is a red connection on the motherboard that says....GURU.... yet you dont need anything connected to it for uguru to work. So.... What is that for? what connects to that?

    2.The settings in the Bios under CPU user defined that change the DDR2 CPU ratio.... I think there are like 6 or 7 settings. they look like this.....1:1.50 .... that is ONE of the settings. It says it changes the CPURAMM. I have 1066 mushkin RAM and it says default is 817 so my ram isnt running nearly 1066. And the way to move it is by the CPU Mhz setting or by changing it itself. What the heck is it saying? Is it double that number or is that what it actually is? I would never had thought any RAM from Mushkin wouldnt come right from the factory with factory settings by default! Never would had thought it. So when I start changing things will that change accordingly? I mean if I raise the FSB and i know that raises the RAMMhz will raising that setting mess the first settings up? I am a little lost.

    Also I know I used to clock to 4.1ghz with my qx9650 and with no trouble. I used to set the northbridge to 1.50v I dont remember what I ever set the CPU VTT at. I know that is the target and I could almost sware I set that to 1.50v as well. I am just not willing to say that I for sure did that.

    and last question.... Can someone please post a handy copy of something for overclocking this Boards settings so I can see all the settings at one time with an explaination of what they are...i mean for ABIT to just put something to the effect of what it will Thanks a mill beforehand!

    1. will be for a guru clock/guru panel

    2. what CPU are you running? this will have an effect on what the mobo sets as defaults ( as will running failsafe default or optimised default).

    abit are gone so they aren't going to put anything new up but there is http://www.abit.com.tw/banner/bios-guide/index.htm plus presumably you have a manual.

    Thanks alot for the reply!
    I never thought anyone would.

    My CPU is the QX9650 And its on water. runs normally around 28 to 30 and I have never saw it go over 34 under load. I am about to put a much better block on it so it will run cooler even.

    What do you mean Abit is gone? They are out of business? if so that sucks because they have great boards. I have been using all Asus boards and this is the first time I ever used anything else and I think its way better.

    Where can I get this guru panel?
    And if you can set me up with some settings. I am almost positive that I had my Mushkin enhanced Ram set on 4 5 4 11 at 1000 mhz and its 1066. It may have been 5 4 5 11. But I think it was the former because the Mhz is lower then the clocked speed. I think I would had rather had the latency higher and the mhz up past 1066. I hear that the latency really doesnt mean much. and the rated speed of the ram is really in the pc8500 number. because its 8.5 gbs no matter the latency so if you get the mhz up then that number goes up as well.

    Is there any general rules about what these settings should be set at? because it seems there is a great deal of settings for each one. thanks

    yes, their parent company killed them because they weren't making the required profit margins.
    abit are/will be missed by more than a few but they couldn't compete with the economies of scale that Asus/Gigabyte/MSI/ECS etc.. enjoy.

    Where can I get this guru panel?
    obviouisly as abit have been gone for nearly a year it's either a case of finding 1 gathering dust on a shelf somewhere or buying second hand.
    where are you?

    That really sucks that they are gone. I mean man I was making them my new motherboard supplier for all biulds and of course my luck.... Hey you have any companies you would like to go under? Or perhaps something you would like ruined? I am sure if you tell me and I buy it, call them, use it or choose it... something bad will happen to it!!.... OR THEM!!! LOL

    Well anyway. I really want to overclock this board because of all the newer technology. I plan on getting the new top of the line soon so I want to mess around with this in the meantime. I figure If I can get some high settings that will work for overclocking I can keep tweaking from there till something works and mess with it till it blows up or I find something out that i never knew. Got to tweak it! I know though If i cant get this thing back to at least 3.8 then I will never break 4.1 again. I really think I can get it over 4.4 on water. But of course I need some base overclock at around 3.6 to even start from. I dont remember a thing about it. Its been like 11 months or so since I even turned a PC on so im sort of lost and have forgotten everything about overclocking. I wasnt into it that long to begin with.

    I know someone else like you so you aren't alone. Perhaps you should change your name to Jonah?
    why couldn't you have done for Asus ...

    I never had an IX38 so i suggest that you clink on the link to abit forums @TRP in my sig. & ask there as some of them did.
    Also check the forum at XtremeSystems where I expect there to have been an IX38 thread.

    If you are still after one do a search on ebay for GC-02 and it comes up with one as of todays date (29/11/09)

    Yes, powerbanks are very useful and available on many websites. However that has nothing to do with this discussion.
