    tries to cut off the power to the motherboard , wait 3 minutes and again by the current, otherwise proceed with a " CLEARCMOS "
    P.S before working properly ? you have the latest drivers installed the ROG Front Base ?

    Same here.

    Anyone know how to flash back to 2012 after updating to 2401?

    Update: seems that you can't downgrade directly to 2012 from bios 2401.
    I managed to downgrade to 2304 (front base is now working directly from the bios)

    We really need a change log here. We are not 2 year olds that figure out if we want to update a bios or not. We buy 300 plus dollar ROG boards for a reason. Improved system stability is not a change log. Can an admin post a real change log so we can make an educated decision as to whether or not we need to update...................... After saying what i think needs to be said...This bios did seem to improve sli communication and or pcie functionality. . My 980's are running smoother than ever even in a screwed up game like watchdogs. A REAL CHANGE LOG PLEASE...

It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free" R.R.

    You are lucky! I flashed to 2401 and now I can't flash back or revert to a previous version. If I try to revert to an earlier version it doesn't recognize the BIOS file as a valid BIOS file. Right from the start it has been a nightmare. It doesn't load the keyboard and mouse, so i have to switch them around to find a USB outlet that will recognize it. I have BSOD randomly now in windows with different exceptions. None of this was happening to me with 2012. What I find particularly annoying is that it will allow me to flash with 2401 over and over again, but it won't let me flash a previous version to get rid of this nightmare. My solution, send the board back to Amazon for a refund and buy a different motherboard...
