    I think some people need to step back from system building if they do not know how to download a file, extract, and run it.

    A thread has officially deteriorated when someone claiming to be educated starts telling others in a rude manner to "go educate yourself". ASUS resets settings for good reason - not all settings...

    You can't take screenshot of those screens. I checked this and it is also working for me. The simple test directions are SHIFT + RESTART, then it will say please wait. After please wait click...

    Some users experience this, some do not. I don't think it has been figured out. My first board (Maximus VIII Hero) had the pop/tick noise but now my Maximus VIII Hero Alpha does not. If you go...

    I haven't noticed anything unusual, people just can't answer if the problem is uncommon. If you hold shift when clicking restart and it worked before, it should work now. Boot to UEFI should be...

    Reading through the history here I have to say the solution is obvious: use different memory brand. I have read a few dozen problem/resolution posts with Corsair as a common denominator. I have no...

    occasional no boot with code 00

    I have a Maximus VIII Hero Alpha on BIOS 1601 and a i7-6700K. I use G.Skill DDR4-3000 CL15 (on the QVL). I typically run a 4.5GHz overclock but have tested this issue at stock as well. The...

    This might be a topic for another thread if you kept this board. There is nothing difficult about installing a M.2 drive in Windows, especially Windows 10 as it has native nvme support. I have...

    I'd recommend the VIII Hero. I have no issues. I found the BIOS to be very easy to navigate and the operation predictable and reliable. I do read of many people having issues but I think a lot of...

    I had some noise from the CPU area. I know 100% it came from the CPU area because I took out my gfx card and tested with just iGPU. I replaced my new titanium PSU with my old corsair gold rated and...

    You can always set mrc fast boot to enabled. The longer post is due to memory re-training on each start up. You can just enable MRC fast boot to use the last settings. ASUS included that setting...

    USB devices can be hit and miss on Z170 systems. All USB functions, even the ports limited to USB 2.0 speeds, run through the XHCI controller. The only way to make struggling devices compatible is...

    +1 to Ondersma. That is why got this whole thing going. My friend's system, exact same board, bios, CPU, etc sounds great. Mine is so bad you really can't miss it. Where is the stupid driver?

    Ondersma80 is on the right track. The bios has nothing to do with stability between the CPU memory controller and the memory itself. I would stop messing with timings and set the xmp or set timings...

    In the manual ASUS says cpus are not guaranteed to run 3200 and up. 3000 and lower is always fine (even though 2133 is spec). If I had to add voltage to run 3200, which is still modest, I would...
