Default Re: Basic FX59xxx bios changes

Well, for what it is worth, I DID toast a card following these mod guides (RIP card in my sig)...except for one step.

I used a third party hex editor - just a straight hex editor - instead of using the X-Bios Editor. I just changed my memory timings, and *poof*, dead card.

Well, what was the problem? I FORGOT THEIR WAS A CHECKSUM BIT! Didn't set it after changing all those memory timings, so the resulting BIOS I flashed with was essentially garbage. Dead card!

Lesson learned - USE THE X-BIOS EDITOR TO CHANGE THESE VALUES!
