So far all works much the same as 1302 BIOS. But i have yet to take the system to higher OC settings apart from using XMP I @ 3600MHz and an OC of 4.9GHz at vcore 1.2v vccio 1.15v vcsa 1.1v AVX -3


I am on 5.0 1.32volts. 1.15 on the vccio and vccia. -3 on avx and other small stuff changes on the CPU PowerManagement and LLC 6.

I have the same mobo, Maximus XI Extreme and am able to use BIOS Flashback USB port to go to any previous BIOS version. I haven't tried that within the BIOS using ez BIOS flashing utility, though.


I can use any USB port to flash to older or newer versions. I've never been forced just to use our BIOS Flashback USB port. My APEX XI finds whatever usb port I use automatically

I would like more information on using the dual bios chips on this Apex XI , have not found much information on the correct way to switch bios settings. There is even suppose to be a led light on this motherboard, that tells you which bios your on, which I can't find or see. Any info on switching bios versions on this motherboard will be appreciated


Bios switch page 1-12. and LEDs are next to bios battery.

I already read that page long time ago, it does not explain very well how to actually use it correctly at all....in my opinion.

As far as the lights, if it is near the bios battery, I'll never see it then as the 2080Ti card even hides the battery. Very poor place to put the bios lights.

what you don't understand about how using it? you choose one bios and use bios flashback or EZupdate to whichever version you want switch bios and repeat. i think in bios you can force it to boot from other bios but i'm not sure now. about light placement its bad if you have 3slot gpu yea i have 2 slot and its ok. and HDD status diod have bad placement too. on my old APEX IX both HDD and bios switch are on bottom so you can easily see them. maybe this is because for no reason they switch from E-atx to atx standart. and we have no more x-shape pcb 😞
