Yes, this processor you are planning to buy will work on the CUV4X.

Please ensure that you upgrade to the latest BIOS:

Either Version 1009 Final or Version 1010 Beta 002.

I suggest you go with the 1010 Beta 002 to have support for the latest processor steppings.

hey thanks andy! im a big newbie at this and i was wondering if i really need to update bios :[, my current bios is 1005.


cuz... this thing really scares me i dont want my mobo to go poof...i read the how-to-update bios thing on asus's website (http://usa.asus.com/inside/flash_mb.htm#main) , and I dont have the boot disk to save the new bios to...even worse is...my A: drive is broken, won't work........any other ways to update?

If i do get a new A drive....how do i make the boot disk? Do I put the win98 boot disc in first so it goes straight to the dos prompt, then follow the " Upon First Use of the Computer System" instructions to make my boot disc, then save my new rom file to the disc and follow the "Updating BIOS Procedures (only when necessary)" instructions? Thanks you!linkified for your convenience

If you want a 1GHz processor, you will definitely need to upgrade the BIOS.

What OS are you running?

If you are running Win98, there is no need to use a boot disk. Simply boot up in Safe Mode Command Prompt.

Make sure that you have unzipped the flash file (1010.002).

Run AFLASH.EXE

Hit [1] to back up the existing BIOS to a file. Once that is done,

Hit [2] to flash to a new BIOS. Type out the entire BIOS path and name, ie C:\1010.002. AFLASH will show a comparison screen of the existing BIOS and the new BIOS. Make sure that motherboard models match, then proceed with Flash.

When prompted, flash once more again, then exit the program and reboot.

Pop into the BIOS, and load BIOS defaults, and then go through and make any changes you need.
