Hi All, My idea (I hope it wasn't suggested yet) is a protection against badUSB:
It could be turn on from the BIOS security menu. Every motherboard could have a unique, factory generated PIN code (the default could practically printed somewhere on the board), and if this feature has turned on and you're connecting a keyboard, you must need to enter this PIN first from the connected keyboard.
1) Can you elaborate on this? What do you feel constitutes as “concise”?
2) 7800-8000 for which board? Only the Apex is validated for 8000MT

1) ASUS support says 7800 is supported by Team Group. I was also reading that the Hero uses memory only in even numbers.
My memory is not supported 😒
When will ASUS add Gskill 7800 to list? I didn’t go with Team Group from reading they had a lot of issues with the memory. Even tho both use SK Hynix chips. Since running Gskill it is faster more stable and the only issue I have had was when Win 11 sets it to sleep, when trying to wake it. Failure. We have been back and forth testing in another thread. I even spent all day doing a another MemTest86 Hammer Test, no errors.
The QVL after Initial launch can sometimes be slow to update, but you can check the memory vendors QVL also.
7800MT can be tough on 4 DIMM boards hence why this is the highest validated frequency. Platform limitations are what they are, but I would agree that user awareness is an area for improvement 🙂
I realize RAM support is mentioned, but I'd like to be even more specific.
Please publish the exact BIOS parameters for the items on the QVL list and instructions on how to set them.
For example, I bought the CORSAIR CMH192GX5M4B5200C38 4x 48GB kit based on its presence on the QVL list. But I immediately found out that (1) the BIOS version mattered but was stated nowhere; (2) the XMP profile mattered but was stated nowhere; and (3) the timing, frequency, and voltage parameters mattered but were stated incorrectly on the QVL list according to Asus Support.
Point in case: the QVL states 38-38-38-84 for timing, 5200M/t for frequency, and 1.25V. Asus Support suggests (!) 40-40-40-77, 4400M/t, and 1.25V. I use the word "suggests" because the engineers don't say "do this and it will work" but rather say "try this and see if it works."
I find it very disturbing that Asus releases motherboards and BIOS versions that need to be substantially parameterized to work but can't tell us what exact parameters are needed and how to set them. I would like to see that addressed immediately for existing motherboards and be available as a routine feature of all new ones.

Better XMP profiles would be great if they support Gskill 7800 and 8000 memory. They work great on default and XMP 1, 2 and Tweaked. The only issue is Windows Power Management after it goes to sleep, upon wake up it gives QCode 54 mostly, on reboot it also gave these 55, 62, 31.
