The new BIOS keeps crashing on me

rog maximus z790 apex encore bios 1301
I directly enabled INTEL's preset~or ASUS's OC settings~
Even though I completely defaulted and did not enable XMP, it still kept crashing ~ various application errors could not be executed ~ and constant BSOD

Due to previous suggestions
https://rog-forum.asus.com/t5/intel-700-600-series/help-g-skill-48gb-8000-stable-parameters/m-p/1012...

I changed the CPU to i9-14900KS SP:103 MC SP:84
The motherboard has also been updated to: rog maximus z790 apex encore
RAM G .skill 48GB 8000

Are there any recommended settings that can solve the problem... This BIOS update was a complete disaster for me

There are many problems with the latest BIOS~ Has anyone restored it to normal after updating?
The default will cause various black screens, crashes, and BSODs in WIN11.
I have to flash back to the old BIOS...can ASUS or a moderator help?
Completely preset. Ready to use after update. A completely unreliable version... I'm really about to collapse.
I'm also worried that my CPU or motherboard is damaged... the system is definitely screwed up!

There are also many people on reddit experiencing various situations!

All you have to do if you want to roll back is put your bios update on USB stick shove the stick into the BIOS USB port go to tools in the bios go to easy bios Flash run the BIOS file off the stick and reflash this will reset everything it's not hard all you do is install an older bios for example I have rolled back to buy us 1101 why because it's the only by us that doesn't have an integrated Intel baseline profile after rolling back to 11:01 I have manually calibrated the CPU settings to the Intel advertised profile which is not the same profile that Asus has built in to their new update I have had nothing but horrible problems with 1301 I have not experienced the blue screen of death but I have had terrible crashing I've had USB port stop working I lose control of my character while playing a game 1301 is a goddamn nightmare and Asus should be ashamed of themselves I previously ran an i-9 11,900k with an Asus strix board it never had any problems it never crashed it always worked perfectly the difference between the two configurations which I now have an rog Maximus Apex encore i9 14900 KS it's about 30 frames faster than the older CPU even in 4k but the stability sucks and I'm definitely not happy thought about returning the whole thing claiming parts protection saying that it's faulty definitely not impressed

Strange... My wife and I both have the Apex Encore. I am running a 14900KS, she is running a 14900K. She got a random blue screen last night, (after udating the bios this weekend), however I have not had any issues at all. 

After updating our BIOS in both Apex Encore's I ran Memtest86 in bios and then TM5 in windows. Both passed on both boards.

If you want to flashback to a previous version, if you have another PC to use, download the previous BIOS off of ASUS website, extract the folder contents onto a blank flash drive, run the bios re-namer, then delete the rename tool from the flash stick. 

plug the flash stick into the BIOS flashback USB port on the back of the motherboard, then. you can press the bios flash back button and flash the bios back that way without having to boot up. There are more detailed instructions on how to do this if you prefer a step by step method you wish to follow on the Asus Support website, same site that you can download the bios under the documents section.

I also had to revert back to 1202 today as well. All issues went away after doing so.

Well guys I had the same issues with my new bios update  for my Asus Z790 Apex running the Intel i9 14900KS chip.

Got this chip running at 5905.78 MHz  very stable , been running at the speed for very long time. 32 GBytes DDR5 memory sticks (2 sticks)  Could not boot to Windows 11 Pro after many tries ....did make it once to the desktop but was not stable at all.  Got all kinds of Windows errors too trying to boot to the desktop.  I'm back on my older bios version 2202 now. This was the worst bios update I've  ever updated too ... never had problems before with any bios update.  I'm glad to see I'm not alone ...LoL   Windows was even reporting some files in windows could not load.

Guess I'll just wait and see what ASUS does next .... Mike ...

wow, so glad you all shared this information.  I was about to update my bios on my apex but after learning about all of the issues, I will not.  Sounds like Asus really dropped the ball on this one.  They clearly did not test it enough before releasing it.
