    I already read that page long time ago, it does not explain very well how to actually use it correctly at all....in my opinion.

    As far as the lights, if it is near the bios battery, I'll never see it then as the 2080Ti card even hides the battery. Very poor place to put the bios lights.

    what you don't understand about how using it? you choose one bios and use bios flashback or EZupdate to whichever version you want switch bios and repeat. i think in bios you can force it to boot from other bios but i'm not sure now. about light placement its bad if you have 3slot gpu yea i have 2 slot and its ok. and HDD status diod have bad placement too. on my old APEX IX both HDD and bios switch are on bottom so you can easily see them. maybe this is because for no reason they switch from E-atx to atx standart. and we have no more x-shape pcb

    the update BIOS 1401 has an update for the i9 9900ks CPU if you check out the changelog. It might be a good idea to update just for that reason alone. My system max xi extreme is running good with 1401 update from when it was first published at ASUS support page for my mobo.

    There are some posts on here warning about upgrading to the 1401 bios. I have the 9900KS chip too. I did the upgrade to 1401 and had problems overclocking my 9900KS to anything over 5.2 It can also give you memory issues if your overclocking your memory. I ran 1401 for about 3 days, trying to tweak my bios settings. After having not very good results I went back to the 1302 bios. Not all motherboards let you go back to a older bios file. Mine does. If your on the 1302 bios and having no issues, I would NOT update to the 1401 bios. Its way to buggy right now. This is just my personal opinion, if you don't oc your 9900k or 9900ks chip over 5.2, and don't oc your memory very high, then it might run fine for you. But the 1302 bios is much better than the latest 1401 on my 9900KS chip.

    If anyone wants to know how to use the Bios Switch on their motherboard, here is the step by step instructions.
    On the Asus Apex XI the bios leds are in center of the board. Impossible to see the bios lights if you have a 2080Ti 3 slot card.

    How to switch from BIOS 1 to BIOS 2.

    1. Turn on the Power Supply but not the motherboard
    2. Press the BIOS_SWITCH
    3. Look for the BIOS_LED to check which one currently using either BIOS1 or BIOS2
    4. Turn on the motherboard and boot to the bios.

    +1, 1401 is buggy if your not running default settings.

    After hearing about all the stability issues folks were having after updating from 1302 I was hesitate to try 1401, but reading the change log for 1401,.. I was interested in seeing improved memory overclocking, and adjustment of the Tjmax parameter when using i9-9900KS.

    Before updating I was 100% stable at 5.3GHz 1.35V, and running 4600MHz memory in XMP mode. With 1401 same settings are unstable and memory will not boot in XMP at 4600MHz. So not sure what they mean "Improve Memory overclocking rules"

    I spent a few days running CPU @ default settings, and 2x8GB memory at 4133MHz with no issues 100% stable, I tried 2x16GB 4000MHz memory kit and could not boot in XMP or manual settings, and same 2x16GB kit worked fine with 1302 BIOS in XMP mode.

    For my system the 1401 BIOS does not offer any performance improvement, memory overclocking is also not improved.
