Maximus XI Extreme BIOS update 1302 brought back audio dropouts on my new Sound blaster AE-9. I know you guys at Creative labs are trying to enhance performance but for the love of god, some of us do other things than just gaming. Jeez!

The latest 1302 Bios is good, Ram Overclocking 4266 CL17 with Command Rate 1T is now easy possible :cool:

while I am no-where near that (can't break 4000mhz) I can confirm it has improved ram overclockability significantly

i was able to go from 3733mhz to 3900 with 1302

EDIT: spoke to soon. 3900 was only stable because i hadn't dialed my cpu overclock in yet

Thats why you backup the last or all the 8 user profiles to a USB drive, last option on the user profile page.

you can't really backup bios settings. you can save them to a text file, but no way to automatically restore them

You can, at least on the Maximus XI Hero. I personally did it and I explained the process at page 31 of this same thread. I did it both times from BIOS 1005 to 1105 and from BIOS 1105 to 1302, both times worked as intended and I did not have to change a single setting afterwards, everything was as in the previous bios version. Just save the settings in the *.CMO format and then reload them after the bios update.

Ah, thanks!

So I assume it doesn't save the settings in that format right from the bat in case there is a menu item difference between versions.. so renaming the file extension at your own risk then ?

No need to rename the file extention. Must be CMO.*

Btw. As far as I remember F2 saves txt file while CTRL (or SHIFT)+F2 saves CMO bin file.
