    So I have an Asus a8n32-sli and I have vista downloaded, the specific bios for the mobo from this forum, and I am pretty much ready to go. But before i do this I wanted to know if are there any negative effects to modding the bios with the slic code? Does it take away any functionality of the motherboard or slow anything down? Also, what if i mod the bios but just end up using XP anyways, any problems there?

    Well, I flashed my Bios (ASUS P5KR) yesterday and did not note any negative effects as it doesen't effect the hardware at all. Simply said; you modify your current bios by adding an information only. So If the flash performs fine it works like a charm.

    Well, the worst problem is if it doesn't work and it bricks your motherboard. I had a motherboard that I installed a modded bios an it would lock up on intializing the floopy. That made it basically bricked because I could not boot from a floopy to rollback the bios. Bricked!!

    Yet again this is assuming that all went as planned. If successful the answer is yes. If it is bricked then no.

    Thats why it's good idea to have bootable USB/CD/something else too ;)

    I have afudos and bios files on my bootable USB stick -> no need to even install floppy drive to the case and I can keep it disabled on bios all the time

    EDIT: but of course there is slight chance that something goes wrong and mobo gets bricked. Tho new mobos are quite good at recovering old bios compared to some old MOBOs.
