    It's not just losing hope that Asus will bring out a BIOS update for older motherboards, but also patching the BIOS for old motherboards oneself. The Rampage V Extreme was easy, but finding the...

    It's odd that the location has an influence. My UBU folder was on the Desktop.

    There are no new errors in Event Viewer . Just the ones I normally get... There's been no uncalled system reboots. The PC is stable just like before. I'm using the same BIOS settings. The only...

    I didn't think later Intel CPUs would be hit that hard! That means my mate who has an X99 mobo with an i7-6900K is in for a rude awakening. Yeeesssshh... I can understand you wanting to go with...

    I patched the microcode for my Rampage V Extreme (BIOS 3801) with i7-5960X. Reboots are slower. The i/o before and after benchmarks are not good.

    The Corsair Obsidian 900D.

    Oh, wait... Slimmer?? NOT the 900D.
  13. FYI: PS4 (pro) controller + PC = Boot process stuck on "Q-Code 61"

    BIOS 3801.

    The boot process never gets past q-code 61 irrespective of the USB port used by the controller.

    (update) I also plugged the controller in a mate's Rampage V Extreme 10 mobo. Same...

    Ah, so the MS patch is only installed, but until mobo manufactures release updated BIOSes containing the new intel microcode, there is no hardware support to enable the patch. Do I have that right? ...

    Nothing's changed for me in that respect. I've encountered the same q-code 67 barrier with freqs beyond 2800MHz with BIOS 3701.

    I think it's a 67. I can get my DDR4 3000MHz to 2800Mhz under BIOS 3504, but anything over that produces the same q-code 67 every time irrespective of what other things get changed. I would've even...
