*NVME TESTING folder contains BIOS files that have been modded for NVME support*

*if you have a special request for another bios revision just post on this thread or PM me... please be patient since for some reason I no longer receive email notifications from Asus Forum when I get PM's or to subscribed threads.*

Yes, you lost your setting.
But it's really simple, take some pictures of your OC configurations before flashing the BIOS and repeating them on the new Bios.


That is the problem, i remember that time i do that and not working. Not remember exactly if i undervolt, highvolt or downgrade my OC, but it is clear to me that I applied another OC that I had previously to able get stable my PC not ask me why but that's the way things were.

Are there other things updated in the NVMe BIOSes, or are they just the stock BIOS with NVMe support added to them?

Also, what's the difference between the BIOS files in the 'NVME Testing' folder and the main folder? Is it only the ones in the NVMe Testing folder that have the NVMe mods? If the ones in the main folder have different updates, how do I get those updates? Can I install that BIOS first then install the NVMe BIOS?

One other question, can anyone recommend a few different cloning programs or backup software? Preferably something free.

My current SSD is failing (it's down to 8% health according to Crystal Disk Info), so I wanted to back it up before it fails. I always do a clean install when installing Windows on a new or different SSD/HDD, but I just want to backup the SSD before it fails so I can still have access to some of the files on it. I also gotta figure out what the heck is causing all the writes on it. There's no point in me getting a new SSD yet if my current one has been writing over 10GB or data to it per day. I downloaded HD Sentinel, and in only one day it reported over 10GB of data had been written to the SSD. It was at 100% health over 6 months ago and since then it had slowly gone down. I thought it was due to the age of it (Crucial M4 that is about 5 years old), but it appears the failure is due to excessive amounts of data written to it.

GREAT BOLTS4BREKFAST, New Microcode UPDATE Ivi-Bridge 0x42C ,You could do the same with 4901 bios of the Rampage gene IV?

Thanks so much

I just added BIOS 2104 For P8Z77-V PRO. I also added NVME module. If you want NVME support - download the one in the NVME TESTING folder.

Here is what's updated in the BIOS file for your board:
updated OROM IRST and EFI IRST 15.1.0.2545
updated EFI Intel GOP Ivybridge 3.0.1030 Sandybridge 2.0.1024
updated Intel OROM PXE 1.5.62 and Intel EFI UNDI 6.6.04
updated CPU Microcode

**Both BIOS files have the same updates installed. The only difference is that the one in the NVME TESTING folder ALSO includes NVME module.**
So if you don't want NVME - just download the one in the main folder.

As far as cloning software goes.. there's quite a few out there.. here's one that comes to mind.

Hey BOLTS4BREKFAST, thanks a lot for doing that BIOS for my other board, and also thanks for all the information on what the BIOS files contain update wise. Does updating all those things ever cause issues? I'd assume it's always better to have newer versions of the IRST and Intel EFT LAN ROM?

How come Asus don't update that stuff too often? I know some of the earlier BIOSes I installed did have some of those updates. Anyone can answer this question, doesn't have to be BOLTS4BREKFAST as I know he is a bit busy.

Also, can I ask why you made separate ones with NVMe instead of just the one version? Is that because the NVMe ones might have a higher chance of causing issues?

Sorry for all the questions. You don't have to answer if you're too busy.

1) As far as I know, my updated bios files haven't caused any issues for anyone.

2) Newer isn't always necessarily better in terms of IRST.. it's important that BIOS IRST ROM version and driver version you have installed in your OS are in the same version family for best results.. for example - Bios has 15.X RST ROM - therefore, install 15.X RST driver/software. You can also do your own before/after performance testing to see if the newer ROM gives you better (or same) performance.

3) Asus can't possibly support updating every single bios version for every motherboard that they have.. that would take a lot of man power and time. Furthermore, there's limits as to how long the current module will support the chipset/motherboard that you're trying to update.. For example - IRST latest version is 16.x - but that version isn't compatible with x79 chipset.. so that's why there's no BIOS file with 16.x RST ROM for x79 boards. So in other words, there's a fair amount of time, knowledge, and research that goes into modding these files.. you can't just simply included all the latest and greatest and expect it to work properly.

4) I made separate NVME and Non-NVME versions just because not everyone wants or uses NVME. And originally, it was just to test compatibility.. so I knew whether or not NVME module would cause other issues vs Non-NVME versions.

Just give it a try and see how it works for YOU. If you don't like it, or it doesn't work properly, either let me know, and I can check to see if it's an issue with the bios file, or you can simply just flash the OEM BIOS from Asus website.
