I'm trying to access XTU but it's telling me to enable 'Undervolt Protection' in Bios.

i'm running a z690 Asus rog maximus hero. Windows 11.

Where in Bios can i enable this ? I see pictures of an 'Undervolt protection' section that can be enabled or disabled but I don't see it on my bios ? i have V 3401 installed. Do i need to install an older version to see 'Undervolt Protection' option ? The bios pictures that i see are from asus mother boards which is the part that's confusing me.

i just wanna be able to utilize xtu app. pls help

I've never used XTU or changed that option, but Undervolt Protection is listed in the Extreme Tweaker/Tweakers Paradise section. I'm assuming that's the option you need to change. 

I have the same board and BIOS, so it should be there for you as well. 

Z690 Hero, 12900K, BIOS 3501, MEI 2406.5.5.0, ME Firmware 16.1.30.2361, 7000X Case, RM1000x PSU, ASUS TUF OC 3090TI, 2 x 16GB Corsair RAM @ 5200MHz, Windows 11 Pro 23H2, Corsair H150i Elite AIO, 4x Corsair RGB fans, 3x M.2 NVME drives, 2x SATA SSDs, 2x SATA HDs.

I had to turn off "memory isolation" in Windows 11 before I could get XTU to run. I reengage "memory isolation" when not using XTU. Also, some virtualization stuff can get in the way and may need to be disabled.

Hi @bruinor 

Just for future reference, you can always use the UEFI search function on the top menu bar. Makes navigating the UEFI much easier.
