Updating bios k9a2 platinum
Before downloading please make sure this is your motheeboard Go and downlaod MSI HQ Tool from here ,you need to make an account to be able to access the download section: 3.
If your mothebroard has a red heatsink on the CPU VRM (near the CPU socket) you have version 2 of the motherboard.
Glad to help you If you have question regarding the tool ask Svet on the msi forum ,he is the one that made it.
All you need to do now is to have a good USB stick because not all will boot.
Before install the new drivers, Easy Driver Pro backs up your existing Drivers and settings to create a restore point just in case one of the MSI K9A2 Platinum Motherboard Drivers turns out to still be incompatible.
I hope whatever they make is better than what we had untill now for even better prices.
It checks everything such as sound card, graphic card, monitor, mouse, printer, etc.
to see if you have the latest, most compatible device drivers installed.
Normally you wont update to a AMI bios if you have Award ,you don t know what could happen If in your BIOS menu you see American Megatrends then you are ok.
Red heatsink = 125W TDP allowed Ahhh I see, ah yeah its definitely an AMI bios ^^, hoping to upgrade system maybe mid to end summer, but im goin to try that USB Tool after work tommorow then, as id like to try get some more out of my cpu, its idling at ~18c atm like, yet i cant seem to OC it without it failing to post lol.
