Hi all,

I will flash my mobo's bios and I know I need to revert back from overclocked settings to the original before doing it.

But I am really curious about if it is enough to just put all the settings back to their defaults manually ( which were all at auto ) or do I need to do something else ?

When you flash your bios it will automatically go back to default settings.

You may have to change yout memory settings to get back to 800 or 1066 MHz depending on your motherboard.

you don't usually need to reset your BIOS before flashing it. Also, it may save your settings and keep them for the flashed version. If not, they'll be reverted back to default anyway.
