    BIOS Chip Flashing - Maximus IV Gene-Z using a different motherboard

    Hey guys,

    I'm having trouble getting a system to POST. This system uses an i7 2600K in a Maximus IV Gene-Z Mobo.
    I have done tons of troubleshooting including testing PSU, CPU, removing Ram, reseating processor, new thermal paste, etc, etc.
    My next hunch is a corrupt BIOS, however unfortunately the Maximus IV Gene-z does not have a dual bios, and you cannot use ROG connect to restore a BIOS on this board.

    With that said, I have another system that runs a 3770K in a Maximus V Formula.
    Does anyone know if its possible for me to stick the Maximus IV Gene-Z BIOS chip into the V Formula, flash the Gene-z BIOS to it, and then put it back in the Gene-Z? Could this cause any damage my to 3770K / Maximus V Formula system?
