    Video Guide: CAP Converter BIOS Update

    If you’re now updating your motherboard BIOS for any reason, you’ll need to do the CAP conversion.
    This is a two-step process which we’ve detailed in the video below so you can see how it works, and
    as a reference to check if your update has gone smoothly.



    For Rampage IV Extreme
    If your BIOS version is 1404 or older, please install the BIOS Converter first before you update the BIOS.

    The BIOS Converter is an ASUS-exclusive utility that allows you to convert the BIOS structure from .ROM
    to .CAP for Windows 8 full-functionality.

    http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...reme/#download

    System specification:-
    Intel i7-3930K
    ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
    ASUS GTS450 DirectCU
    G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-1600 CL9 4GB x 4
    Corsair AX1200

    EDIT: The BIOS Flashback help page has also been updated to include CAP upgrades:

    Is this going to roll out to other boards such as the P8Z68-V PRO?

    Also, what's the difference between the ROM and CAP structures?
    Desktop:
    ASUS P8Z68-V PRO (BIOS version 3402) | Core i5 2500K @ 4GHz | 4GB GSkill Ripjaws F3-12800CL8D-4GBRM (2x2GB) | Palit GTX 680 Jetstream 2GB | ASUS Xonar D2X | WD 1TB HDD (WD1002FAEX) | LG CH10LS20 (Blu-ray/DVD-RW combo drive) | Corsair HX650 | Samsung 2333SW @ 1920x1080 | Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 | Logitech G19 | Logitech G500

    Laptop:
    ASUS G73JH (Core i7 720QM, 8GB RAM, Mobility Radeon HD5870, 2x500GB HDD, 17.3" @ 1920x1080)

    It is not possible to roll back to earlier version after CAP conversion.

    The CAP conversion is necessary for Windows 8 full-functionality.
    At the moment, we have yet to receive a word for P67/Z68 MB.

    It's possible, to Flash Back to 1xxx.ROM, rename 1xxx.rom to ERALL.ROM and use USB Flashback

    When I flashed the bios 2003, I used the file "CAP Converter" in the first, and at the end of the update, I had directly bios 2003 (no need to install bios 2003. cap)
