    I already updated my VII Ranger to 2601 and like i said in another thread everything went great no problems whatsoever. The old 2304 that got removed was working also without any problems but i'm glad i flashed the new 2601 who knows what could have happened later.

    I dont blame you. if you are not on one of the deleted bios versions and you are stable...no need to update unless you are going to replace your cpu with upcoming cpu's.

    Puffnstuff here is a post on what to do if you get the error from Rog member koroziv

    Download the bios to desktop; do not right click-extract to....
    Just open the archive and drag the file to the usb drive
    try again
    I just did it this way and it was fine.
    If you have the bios rename utility, is a fast way to verify the file: if it's bad you will get an error, if it is good it will rename it. (remember to run as admin)
    The turbo boost power values are still multiplied by 8... how hard can it be to get them right ?!?
    Edit
    here is a link with the maximus VII hero file that I used and the bios renamer :

    I find it strange that the bios file has bad blocks when I extract it with windows explorer.

    What program are you using for extracting ? If you don't have winrar it's time you get it. It's an awesome little program for extracting here WinRar

    And yeah i forgot to ask what motherboard do you use ?
