Motherboards reverting to older BIOS

Ello ello ello,

Well, I'm sick today and decided to fill in my time, just to browse my CPUz stats (yes wtf I know). Now, I know I installed the F7 bios for my EP45-DS3R, now it says it's F4, I know I've reset the CMOS by shorting the jumper a few times during my OCs. Would it reset it so much that it puts itself back to an older BIOS?

Thanks all,
c0nc0n

that's a gigabyte board with dual bios yeah?

Are you sure that you haven't switched over your bios to the older one?

Well, I don't have any options to. I can flash one, and then it becomes F8 and its all well. However, there are no options to flash to the backup BIOS

Hey?

You should be able to change to the other BIOS.

At worst all it's going to mean is flashing your BIOS again

I highly doubt that your BIOS is "reverting"

CPU-Z could be just reading the wrong BIOS (ie the first one it finds).

It will say the BIOS version on screen during POST, so just check it there as well to be sure.

Yeah, it POSTS F4 BIOS, don't worry reflashed it now. All good back to F8. I'm curious to know if I reset CMOS via jumpers will it fuck itself and go back...

No you can't change your bios via jumper, maybe you can swap to your other bios or something but that's about it.

I'd say you've inadvertently switched over to your other BIOS and that's what's giving you the different reading
