WARNING BIOS 1302 might give u problems

UPDATE 13/12/2019 New Bios 1401 seems to be stable so far, no BSOD

ORIGINAL POST:
Just a heads up in case someone is in a similar sinking boat lol
BIOS 1302 was causing the odd system restart on my ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI), I have now gone back to 1105 with no problems.
I eliminated all possibilities before posting here which includes, PSU, Wire / connections, memory, re-seating, chkdisc, SFC, DISM, GPU, CPU, TEMPs.
I had the odd system freeze since 1302 then it progressed to restarts few days later, since installing 1105 again there has been no restarts and that includes running multiple tasks to strain the PC into giving me an error or BSOD lol

I hope this saves time an energy for anyone else that might be experiencing a similar problem, also as a side note in 1302 Corssair LINK was giving me some teething problems and funny enough that was the fan control for the PSU unit, could this be part of the problem.... who knows, but 1105 is stable.

PS SPECS: ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI), i9 9900k, corsair LPX 64G DDR4. MSI G X Trio RTX 2080Ti, Corsair AX 1200i PSU, 5 Crucial MX500 2TB SSDs and one WD 4TB drive.

Thanks a lot for sharing this, this might become relevant for me as well shortly.

I was having BSOD issues with my i9 9900K on a different motherboard. It turned out my CPU was faulty. During my attempts to troubleshoot and fix the BSODs I bought a lot of different hardware, since I couldn't really identify the problem. I liked the ASUS motherboard better than the one I initially had, so that's what I'm using now.

I'm currently running the 1302 BIOS without any issues, but I couldn't help but notice you have an i9 9900K as well. I'm temporarily using an i3 9100F, but if the stability issues are somehow linked to the CPU model, I can only imagine the confusion I would experience, if I were to have BSODs with the replacement CPU as well.

So now I know what to focus on if I were to run into more BSODs using this BIOS version. So you potentially saved me from a lot of headaches.

Hello,


Here with 1302 and Maximus XI Extreme no problems. All the latest updates for Win10 are installed. Everything runs like oiled.

The embedded controller (EC) returned data when none was requested. The BIOS might be trying to access the EC without synchronizing with the operating system. This data will be ignored. No further action is necessary; however, you should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. (event 15)


This event message is also here on the PC, but this message should come from one of the ASUS software. (armory crate)

I had issues with the 1302 bios too. I have an Asus Maximus XI Extreme and an nVidia GTX 1080 and had zero issues with the 0903 bios. However, with the 1302 I was getting a no VGA code - 1 long beep, 3 short beeps. Tried several configuration changes but nothing worked. So after reading this thread I downgraded to the 1105 and it posts fine now. Thanks for this thread.

I have an ASUS Maximus XI Extreme and not issues here. Well, I cannot say that there is an issue because I don't use 6 SSDs/HDDs and I don't super OC my PC. I also don't tweak settings or turn off settings in the OS. And I am using a fresh copy of Windows 10 Pro For Workstations direct from Microsoft (I would never use an OEM Windows 10 Image). I also turn off everything that I do not need in the BIOS.

My Specs:

  • Windows 10 Pro For Workstations version 1909
  • ASUS Maximus XI Extreme
  • Samsung 970 Pro 1TB SSD NVMe in motherboard slot one
  • ASUS NVidia RTX 2070 Advance GPU
  • Intel Core i9 9900k
  • Sound Blaster AE-9 Sound Card
  • Cooler Master V1200, Full Modular 80+ Platinum Certified PSU

Are you serious or just sarcastic here? Im kinda confuse of the idea of buying one of the most expensive board made for overclocking to not use it at is full potential.....

Sounds like the luck of the draw, 1302 was the first bios to ever give me problems and 1401 is fine but for you 1401 is not fine and I am guessing 1302 was fine? lol
