    I tried it but unfortunately it doesn't seem to make any difference. Thanks for the hint anyway!

    So far, I am quite happy with my current BIOS 3401 on Maximus VIII Ranger. I am wondering whether it is worth updating to the new BIOS. AFAIK, the main benefit in this version is the fix for the...

    Expect several restarts while BIOS is getting updated; nothing to worry about if PC is reset several times and do not touch anything until you see the "Press F1 to enter BIOS" message.

    IMO, any temperatures below 85 C are safe. Intel CPUs begin to throttle only after they reach 100 C. Claims like the one that the max temp for 6700K is 64 C had me scratching my head so I looked...

    Are you absolutely sure that the graphics card is in a working condition? If not, you should try it on another configuration.

    Not sure if we are talking about one and the same BIOS version but the latest one for my Maximus VIII Ranger is 3201, not 3101 like in your case.

    Ironically, I decided to enable VT-x for the first...

    For those having issues entering BIOS - have you tried the ASUS DirectBIOS application? It is supposed to let you enter BIOS directly after Windows restart.

    Do you update with EZ Flash through Internet? You can always download the new BIOS (if available on the page with updates for your MB) and put it on a USB stick and flash the BIOS from there.
