    Bios stable

    The version of the BIOS which is more stable and that does not cause problems.

    I liked the 1503 version too. But it is really up to the individual hardware mix.

    The key with bios is not to keep chasing the latest bios, find one that works for you and just enjoy your system.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    To start with you will att a minimum you need to select a BIOS which supports your CPU. Beyond that the BIOS version that you select more or less will be based on the following key points:

    - system configuration: each of our system utilize different hardware so what works for you may not work for me (I seem to have random BSOD with BIOS version 1801). Haihane's comment regarding supporting a specific type of memory is also a good example of hardware needs drving BIOS version

    - how you use your computer: generally most of the people (I think) that own the ROG motherboards are Overclockers so they would like a BIOS that support more/wider ranger of OCing features; then some of us simply are looking for a stable BIOS for our needs.

    I know that you were seeking a simple response (sorry for my long response) but again the BIOS that will work for you depends on your system. Generally I personally do update the BIOS to a more current version and work my way down from there if I do encounter issues.

    Let us know what works for you-Brian

    PS: I'm using 170?

    Opps: Look like HiVizMan already posted: )

    Sorry to inform you guys a new 1901 bios was released today. Before you recommend any other bios, since this one is for stability issues, I would recommend checking it out . It may have corrected the issues with 1701 and 1801.

    i might give it a try, but not anytime soon. i don't want to reconfigure the memory timings, the individual selection manually again and again.

    don't get me wrong, i don't mind to be guinea pig for bios, especially it's for the sake of my own system. just that, for the 7th and 8th time doing it, manually checking my written notes in regards to each setting and inputting it like it should after every bios reflash (the neverending quest to find the perfect bios), i do get tired of it pretty quickly.

    i love 1503, it plays nice with G.Skill's TridentX. if only there was an easier way to restore bios settings after each reflash (my previous saved settings was completely wiped out every reflash), i'll be a very happy guinea tester

    Really? I just checked to see if a new BIOS was posted on Friday and didn't see one.

    Just to clarify I wasn't recommending any specific BIOS which I thought was apparent by my post

    I am also liking the 1503 UEFI with my TridentX memory, and properly coming out of sleep with no issues.
