Heya guys,
I'm a happy owner of a Maximus IX Hero with an I7 6700k and 4x8Go G-Skill Trident Z RGB 3200C16, up until today i had no issues, but when i did upgrade my Bios to 1009 (from 906) then it all went wrong.
No matter the settings that i tried in the Bios (when it would actually boot correctly...) the CPU temperature went crazy, about 90°C at idle, instead of 36ish. Also I never managed to boot into Windows. So had to rolled back to 906...
Is that actually a known issue?
Pretty please don't tell me that i need to ugrade to a 7700k to fix it.

Thanks

Does not work reading BIOS configuration from FAT32 USB flash drive. (APEX bios 1010)
When reading a file "name.CMO" the UEFI GUI completely freezes. reboot from the keyboard does not work, only hard reset. naturally, the profile is created on the same BIOS version.
Can someone from close to Asus pay attention to the bug...

I use a FAT32 USB drive with a range of overclocking profiles stored on it for my Apex (Bios 1010).

Doesn't hang/freeze/ show any signs of hanging.

Just thought I would let you know.

There may be a conflict with individual BIOS settings? :confused: I for example disable such obsolete things like Legacy USB Support and CSM.
1) I set up the BIOS as I need.
2) Save the profile on the USB flash drive.
3) Update the BIOS (USB BIOS Flashback) on the same version 1010.
4) Perform clear cmos.
5) Profile does not apply! :mad:

You could be right there. I've not disabled any legacy settings including the on for USB.*

I also do not clear the CMOS before swapping profiles. I can see how that is a clean methodolical processes tho. I'll eye ball the changes normally when the summary prompt pops up (after hitting F10). If all settings seem ok then I apply. However, I have seen this fail twice using a simple reboot. Hard power cycle was needed to get this working. Also one time it actually said all settings were correct for a 5ghz clock in bios*but monitoring software saw the vcore @1.38v on a 4.5ghz clock. Absolutely no need rofl. Extremely odd as I have no need for 1.38v and never set it too that. My 5.0ghz profile works dandy on a 1.32 Vcore. All the mentioned I've only seen happen on 1010 release (not saying it would on previous versions, just not seen it).*

At some point I'll try disabling the legacy options and see if the same happens. *

Don't know if this is related to the "Fixed Logitech device issue" changelog, but there are still issues in 1009.

I use a Logitech K400 PLUS wireless keyboard, and having the dongle plugged into any of the front panel USB2.0 port will sometimes lead to the whole system locking up (just black screen) before completing POST. This is from cold boot, doing warm restarts never seems to trigger it. I "fixed" it by switching to the USB3.0 ports (and it has yet to happen when using those), but it really took forever to figure out that this was the cause!

It's using the C-U0008 Unifying receiver, which is guess is the culprit (though I guess other HID-devices could trigger this as well?)


If vendor/product-info is useful here is the identification from linux:

Dunno if any devs reads here, but would be great if anyone forwarded this info.

My issue with this version of bios 1009 is, it happened once in the while when I turned on my PC, I heard the beep sound like 1 long beep follow by 3 short beep tone.. The moment I went to check the Q-Code in my Mobo, it showed A0 and I can't see any error message in the post screen. Then it just boot into the Windows 10.

This is not happened every time I turn on my pc. Anyone had similar issue and how you get rid of it ?

My problem with this Bios and the previous ones is when I enable XMP my PC randomly won't boot. I must power the PC off and power it on in order to boot normally. My RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR

If I overclock my PC with DIPS then there are no problems at all, except my RAM isn't running at "full speed".

Were your profiles saved on the 1010 BIOS? Because profiles only work for the version of the BIOS that they were saved on. 🙂
