    Garbage BIOS. Went from 1401 to 1601 and couldn't get a POST without using stock settings. Had to go back to 1401 and all is well. Waste of about 2 hours of reboots and changing settings. Many times it would just say "Overclocking Failed...press F1 blah blah".

    On second thought, my experience with 1601 isn't as great either. I always go with default settings first to see if everything is alright but once I customized my settings the BIOS would freeze up when trying to save and restart with just a black screen and frozen cursor.

    The Q-Code is hanging at CE then. Or it would attempt to restart but then hang with Q-Code b1 (b1? I think its not 61, definitely looks more like a b). Sometimes it works out, usually when the board was in a soft-off power state, e.g. one run at default settings, then off/on.

    My customized settings are not even overclock related. Both CPU and Memory is running at stock right now. I disable a few onboard devices: audio, usb3 controller, sata express, wifi, bluetooth. I don't need those. I also set the SATA controller to RAID mode and disable CSM for full UEFI mode. That's all my settings, always worked fine. The freezing troubles started with 1502 and got worse with 1601. Performance and stability are great as always, this problem is solely related to the UEFI/BIOS menu.

    I will try and see if rolling back to 1401 remedies the issue or change to BIOS 2 and flash that to 1401. My board is great but the UEFI/BIOS has always been somewhat moody.

    There is a lesson to be learned here. If your system is stable with a specific BIOS, there is no need to touch it. I can only think of two reasons to even update your BIOS. If the new BIOS solves a specific problem that you're having or it supports a new functionality that you desperately need.

    Updating just for the sake of having the latest and greatest version will usually cause problems.
