Just be very careful to align the pins correctly the first time; you
don't have a second chance if you misalign the pins and fry the module...
stand corrected, but I am nervous about doing this myself - is it
possible to use a tester clip?
We have not been able to do so. There are logic circuits onboard the
firmware module that interfere with direct flashing methods.
Have you found a source for ASMB4 or ASMB5 modules?
Many people I know
who bought their boards on ebay didn't get one and the D8 unfortunately
doesn't come with them either. I am going to contact ASUS and see if
they have a stash.
As with most of the obsolete Opteron hardware, our sources are rapidly
drying up. We have no source for these modules at this time.
