    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.

    HERO download:

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

    And NO it is NOT the same BIOS....why do you think that? Don't you see the difference? 1503 - 1602?

    Wow!
    Well i am asking because the release text is the same for both 1503 and 1602 AND they removed 1503 from the download site, so it seemed like they just renamed the bios file.
    I just often saw people had some tools where they can compare the bios files and check for differences, not sure why you would attack me like that?
    I always test new bioses, also did it with this one.

    Your questions are valid and very welcomed.

    I did a SHA256 checksum [hash check] between 1503 and 1602 and they are certainly different. It is a simple method to see if two or more files are the exact same. Here's the results from the 2 BIOS files [unzipped]:

    SHA256 for 1503:
    1ae8bb8c42750621b7b7058a2fbed15f2a55a8120fa036bd6d e33ce692e7e130

    SHA256 for 1602:

    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 !!
