ROG CROSSHAIR VI EXTREME BIOS 7803
"01. Improve system performance.
02. Update AMD AM4 AGESA Combo PI V1 1.0.0.6

There is a fault with this BIOS causing 3b error on Boot = failure to initialise PCH
You Must enable CSM and boot into legacy mode = enabled in bios


Therefore I do not recommend anyone update till this is fixed, its a huge backward step and should be avoided

I am now seeing other updates on the C6E support page, including the first update to the AI Suite III in a long time. I am hoping this may be a sign that a new Bios update is coming soon. Just hate how they are treating this board this time around. The Bios updates previously, were either before or days after updates to the Hero boards, but this is going on much longer. :mad:

Thanks to you both for this thread that specializes in the Crosshair VI Extreme. Based on your comments I downloaded the new BIOS and chipset driver. This board is not as common as the C6H so it is harder to find C6E posts.

A while ago I posted on allocation of PCIE lanes on this board, in case you are interested.

I really regret going with this board, the memory overclocking on it is actually the worst ive ever experienced. My G skill trident z 3600 c 15 ram is barely stable at 3333 c14, meanwhile ever other board i've tried with the same cpu and ram has outperformed:
Asus Crosshair VII: 3533c14
Asrock X370 Taichi: 3500c14 (increased from 3466 with BCLK)
MSI B450 Tomahawk: 3466c14
Gigabyte Aorus Ultra: 3533c14

So its looking like I paid a premium for board that can't keep up with a budget B450. I've been holding out for the next bios update before deciding to sell the board, but I'm growing pretty impatient. I might consider a regular hero board in the future, but I don't think i'll ever buy a flagship from Asus again.
