    Hi all.
    I have just been thinking about what would happen if my motherboard went south. It was second hand when I bought nearly five years ago.And without spending silly money on a Quad Core Extreme cpu I recon it's just about at it's peak,baring RAM.
    It has 4gig in but can hold 8,only DDR2 though.
    Then I thought what is the next generation of motherboards so I looked at ones which would take the new Intel i7 cpu's.
    Had a look at Micro Direct and quickly picked the "Gigabyte GA-X58-USB3". Not saying I would actually buy this one,just an example. On the Gigabyte site there is always good support with downloads,manuals etc for their stuff and sure enough, there to download is a BIOS file.
    Well my question is the modding of these BIOS files to hold SLIC 2.1 info,It's not dependant on how old a mobo is,is it ?
    Can a brand new mobo be modded just as easily ?
    Has anybody done a brand new mobo ? If so which one and how did it go ?

    Cheers...

    :biggrin:

    For mobo that's too new, you may also try NIC option ROM method.
