I actually love it since now I'm able to turn off QLED after boot sequence.
I am about to put smoke transparent screen. (to reduce red glare during night)
Thank you

Does this fix the fan spin up time issue? I have the spin up time test to 3.6 seconds but temp spikes still causes the fans to spin up.

I do not know if that is a new Problem with this Version but i cannot set any fans below 60% in DC mode.
I can scan the lowest setting (In my case 29%) via Q-fan.
It will automatically set the power to the lowest setting (29%).
ANY manual change afterwards below 60% will again be recognized as "not valid".

Did you try optimizing the fans again? I know I have to run the optimise fans before I can actually set any manual fan curves.

I tried updating to this bios today but couldn't get the USB stick to show in the EZ Flash 3 menu. Only my Windows drive was showing so I gave up for now. Only issue I want fixed is the fan spin up times and it's all good for me.

Mine doesn't even set the lowest settings below 60% for DC mode. only PWM works fine.
same thing happen with previous bios 1101.

You can edit the calibration xml file and lower the limit. You have to restart the Asus services then AI Suite for it to take effect.

Yes you have to optimise to find out the minimum value. Do you know if this bios version has fixed the fan spin up times? Any temp spikes causes my fans to spin up but I have the spin up times to set to 4.6 seconds but it currently doesn't work for me on v1101. I'll upgrade if it's fixed.

It's weird that Asus doesn't allow manual keyboard input but allow it using UI + mouse.
Probably a bug ? Anyway thanks a lot.

No issues so far with BIOS 1301 here. Installed using the EZ Flash util within the BIOS. Reset settings and then re-entered my OC settings. However, there was a long pause after the first boot (about 30-40 seconds) where it just sat there with a dark screen, I read that this might be the BIOS doing some "RAM training" since I did up my RAM to XMP 3200MHz. I just let it finish and everything was fine.

I'm getting 5GHz at 1.300v solid 24/7 and temps never exceed 68-70c in heavy bench (CPU is 8700k delid with liquid metal).

I also ran the Intel SA00086 Detection tool, and it reports that my system is safe from Spectre/Meldown. And I did notice that my Intel ME has been updated to 11.8.50.3399.

I did notice that some of my benchmarks have gone down about 2% to 3%. This is probably related to the Spectre fix.

So far 1301 is great.
