    Hi
    I have just purchased an american board an abit av-20 once I changed the frequency of the front bus it lit up and all is fine.
    The question being is the jumper system that prevents accidental bios flashing a gaurd against bios hacking. as this has happened to me twice in the past two months.
    I bought the board from the local store so when they hack this bios I can just walk in and get a replacement. but to tell the truth it would be great if it did not happen but the walk to the local store is great exercise.
    the hacked boards were an asus a7v8x-x and a gigagyte ga-7 dxr+
    would the abit be efficient in this department or would that be beyond its capabilities.
    any advice would be appreciated
