    I just checked for 1701 and it doesn't seem to be available for the Maximus VIII Hero Alpha. The only oddity I experience is occasionally when powering on from a cold start it just doesn't power up. Like 1 in 10 boots, maybe even less frequently, fans turn on but it never sends a signal to the monitor. Press reset and it boots. I haven't figured it out but as a few others have said I have learned to live with it. If they would upload the new bios I would probably try it and see if it helps.

    Sounds like we might be chasing a similar issue.

    Maybe it's because this update is for Maximus Hero VIII

    I worry that is the type of understanding (lack thereof) that keeps the BIOS from being uploaded.

    1701 was released for the Maximus VIII Formula, Maximus VIII Extreme, Maximus VIII Extreme Assembly, Maximus VIII Impact, Maximus VIII Gene, and Maximus VIII Hero. 1701 for the Maximus VIII Hero Alpha doesn't seem to be anywhere. Maybe it just takes longer to update or test because it has M.2 and U.2 ports, but I think it being forgotten is more likely.

    Yeh, if you go into your BIOS [press del or F2 when booting] there is a section where you can save your BIOS settings as a profile.
    Plug in a USB stick in your USB port and save the profile there. It's in the TOOL section.

    After you update the BIOS import the saved profile from the USB stick. Easy peasy.

    PS The only thing is, it might not save every single setting, it's for saving overclocked settings.

    I had this problem with powering up and resolved it as follows thanks to another posters recommendations

    1- Disable CPU SVID Support (Extreme tweaker menu)
    2. Turn Anti Surge Support off (Monitor menu)

    1701 update was also for the MAXIMUS VIII Ranger, which is what I have.
