    Thumbs up Rampage IV Extreme BIOS issues, no fixes.

    I don't usually post often, but I am really frustrated at the moment as ASUS support always
    gives lousy responses and takes on forever. So the situation is this... I've got a Rampage IV
    Extreme and I am really enjoying the performance of my CPU as it has a lot of life in it left.
    I also have no current plans to upgrade to X99 unless I am forced to do so... First off the issue that
    should *legitimately* be fixed; the dreadful USB 3.0 issues... I have them and I am sick of them.
    The inconsitency these ports have in my board is insane, on one boot they work and in the next
    one they just fail to recognize devices altogether (when they work, they do work flawlessly).

    Next up is a big one as I'd like to buy a new SSD using it as a boot drive (like the Intel 750)
    and I really can't as my board does not support natively NVMe... which for a workstation
    board and for a platform this recent is like an insult to the users of it that paid a good amount
    of money only to be left "sidelined" 2 years after...

    I'd like first off an official response from a (human) ASUS representative on those issues if that
    is at all possible...

    As an owner of a <2 year old Rampage IV Gene I would also like to know why ASUS deem this not worthy of their time (I'm sure Z97 boards will be getting new BIOS upgrades for Broadwell).

    This is the kind of update I would expect to be provided by the worlds #1 motherboard manufacturer, when you pay £300 for a board you don't expect it to stop receiving required updates when there's half the warranty left on it...

    God knows how the Rampage IV Black owners must be feeling, most of those boards are <1 year old
