Latest 3703 BIOS issue/Z170-A

Hi all, since updating the Asus Z170-A mobo to the latest 3703 BIOS version I'm experiencing frequent freezes, the screen all of a sudden gets garbled and nothing responds forcing me to shutdown and restart. Is it possible to flash the BIOS to an earlier version that had no issues? Thanks

If this version is one of the latest including the Intel microcode update which is aimed to resolve the vulnerability issue, then yes - you are bound to get lockups/freezes as far as i have heard.
This is because the microcode update is still not totally refined, so you can always roll back by downgrading to a lower BIOS version not including this modification.

Thanks, is it safe to flash the BIOS with an earlier version? Is it done using the same method I use for updating the BIOS? (restart, enter BIOS and use the update menu to point to the CAP file)
