    i'm still waiting for my SOCI8 clip adapter to arrive as it should have arrived already.

    i hate the postal service sometimes.

    EDIT: Any update on the temp throttling issue?

    I assume you're matching the pink cable to the corner with the dot in one of the corners (pin 1 I think)?

    Yes, that is pin #1. If you don't do that the programmer will error out and you won't be able to ID the chip correctly or complete the flash.

    Like this in the below picture. My second picture above showed a mismatching connection on the chip-set, please neglect that. :p

    Awesome. My programmer is on its way. Still waiting for the clip POS to come...starting to annoy me.

    Be sure the programmer supports the lower 1.8V chip or get a 1.8V adapter or it will fry the vBIOS chip using full voltage. (You may already know, but I mention it for any readers that do not.)

    Do not even attempt with out the 1.8V adapter. Also which programmer did you order?

    I bought the same one as @Coolane, the sofitech sp16-b. I even looked up the supported chip list and it was listed. Even played around with the flashing app and it lists the chip.

    I think @Coolane (and the one you ordered like his) are one of the few that does, but you have to use the correct section of the connector to get the lower voltage. If you connect the alligator clip to the area one would normally connect it you will get full voltage and may torch the chip.

    Most programmers require using the adapter. My TL866A requires that I use the 1.8V adapter, but it directly supports the chip and the chip is in the list even though I have to use the 1.8V adapter. So, the moral to the story is that it is not safe to assume anything based on the supported chip list.
