Yes. This is the problem with updating the BIOS. Even with these new "advanced" UEFI there is STILL no way to save the CMOS settings. :mad: Now we have EVEN MORE cmos settings to record manually, since our computers are unable to do such a simple mundane thing.

Of course the argument goes, oh well, that's because a new BIOS may have some new settings that didn't exist in the old BIOS, or some settings were modified in the new BIOS etc. But I don't see why those "problem" settings can't be removed from the saved CMOS and defaults substituted, but all of the similar unchanged settings would be reapplied. In my experience this situation is very rare and isolated anyway.

Back in the Windows 98 days, there was a free Windows program that would save your CMOS settings. But nothing since then. 😞

oh crap! Looks like i need to look thru the bios again to get back my old OC settings. Good thing is ASUS suite II allows OC so i can just quickly switch to one OC speed without too much problems.
