Z270i m.2 nvme troubles (new BIOS 0808)

DangerToManifol
Level 7
So I saw there is a new BIOS release and decided to try it. Seems to work OK as I can boot again with XMP like 0203 but now I'm having issues with my Intel 600p m.2 nvme. The drive can't be detected on boot at times so I have to manually shut down, wait for a minute or so, and pray it would boot. I had it on the front but moving it to the rear didn't make a difference. Looked in BIOS to see if there's a setting to enable/disable/auto nvme setting and there's isn't one. I also updated the ssd with the latest firmware and it's still doing it. Never had this problem until now.

Anyone else having this issue? How can I rollback/downgrade to the previous BIOS version?

0810 is fine. Idle temps a bit higher. On load (gaming) about 70°C.
M.2 960 pro is working.

Just update to 0810 , everything works great...

Can I ask on 7700K stock 4.2 and 4.5 boost what temps people have?

I use Noctua D9L 1.100rpm and I have 80c on 100% CPU usage Silverbench stress test , 80c jumps after 1 minite and stay there after 30 minites .
Is this normal ? I cant use bigger CPU Cooler because of the Corsair air 240 case and the 2 dim slots close to CPU .
I was thinking about watercooling but I have to find a silent one that have good temps also after 1 hour that water gets hot inside the radiator.

4.5 i'm getting 45-55C gaming, 65-68C OCCT stress test. I had to run my memory at 1.2V or else the temps would spike even more all over the place. All of my problems were gone switching to Gigabyte Z270N Gaming 5. Can finally run XMP (15-17-17-35, 3000mhz @ 1.35v). At 4.7, I'm getting cooler temps vs. 4.5 w/ 1.2v memory with the Z270i.

This board and the rest of the STRIX 270 line are trash IMO.

So if I don't use my XMP profile ... I will get better temps? Is it possible to run my DDR4 at 4.266 xmp profile and 1.2v ?

Cooler and more stable temps. Just ran Cinebench and scored a 1040, max temp on all cores was 51C (7700K 4.7ghz @ 1.19v, 32gb Corsair Vengeance 3000mhz CL15 @ 1.35v, Gigabyte GA-Z270N Gaming 5 mobo with F2 BIOS).

It might let you run 4266 @ 1.2v but I highly doubt it'll be stable at all. I don't think there's a kit rated higher than 2666 with 1.2v. Do a memtest to find out yourself.

Thanks
