    Maximus X Hero BIOS 1602

    BIOS 1602 is now out.
    1. Improve system performance.
    2. Support the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor.

    It's still propagating on the support site, so it's only showing for some operating systems.

    Can anyone check if this is the same BIOS as 1503? Or what is different?

    Just installed on my Maximus X Code....

    I was having all sorts of cold boot instability issues with the previous BIOS and it also did memory training (boot cycle) on every boot with the previous BIOS.

    So far so good on warm reboots and no issues with the flash.

    No noticable change in VCore Load Line Calibration droop/overshoot and RAM/CPU Overclock stability appears to be unchanged after initial testing.

    Will report back after a few mornings once I have a picture of the cold boot situation but for now I see no reason to hold back from flashing.

    UPDATE: Still getting a BSOD shortly after logging in to windows on cold boot. Otherwise completely stable. Ran OCCT stress test overnight no problems with the same OC settigns that were previously stable on the older BIOS.

    Currently test bios 1602 on the Maximus X Code myself...can't see any issues atm....applied same settings with this bios as I had with bios 1503 and a 5.3ghz overclock with the 8086k.Any improvement with this new bios will surely stand out for me. Can't believe there has been 3 bios releases for this board in less than a month !!

    So far 1602 looks good, same OC bios settings as 1401.

    RB benchmark scores on par with 1401. Will try video streaming and gaming later tonight.

    What’s the risk with the bios files not coming from a HTTPS source?

    I had a custom load line of LLC 5 and IA AC and DC Load Line of 0.2. To get the same vcore under load, I had to reduce the load line slope to 0.18. All seems OK.
