I had a bad flashing experience which rendered my bios chip blank,thus making the board useless.I cant seem to find a link anywhere to get a replacement.I'll keep poking around the asus site,but cant seem to find what I need there,and they havnt replied to me yet.I'm sure some of you guys have had to replace an Asus bios chip....where oh where can I get one?

Try badflash.com. I have purchased from them several years ago and they provided good service and selection. Another place is bioschip.com but I have no experience with them.

I don't recommend it... usually the Mac addresses are stored on that particular BIOS rom. If you had to do it, I suppose you could though :)
