    It depends. I have the same mobo and I am running with BIOS 3007 for one month now (actually, I flashed the BIOS two hours after it was uploaded to Asus support site). I have not encountered any problems with overclock or anything else so far (my OC is not very impressive but I am happy with it); actually, I think that with this BIOS the PC startup time (as measured in the Startup tab of Windows Task Manager) is a few seconds faster than before. Also, it seems that Ranger is the only mobo for which Asus did not pull off the BIOS after the recent complaints so perhaps it is better suited for this motherboard.

    Finally, in case that you plan to upgrade your CPU to one of the Kaby Lake family, 3007 is a must, as you can see here: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/MA.../HelpDesk_CPU/

    However, keep it in mind that the general reaction towards this BIOS was quite negative here in the forum and most people prefer to keep running with the older version 2202.

    Damn, i just updated my bios to 3007. I didnt play with cpu overclock but now i need to downgrade de OC on my memory. With 2202 i had them on 3000mhz with 1.35v (auto voltage). Now im forced to put them on 2800mhz at 1.344v auto. MOBO also boots with memories at 2900mhz but the voltaje is at 1.44v!!! Dafuq

    Update: I just called asus support, provided information and the final answer to the OC problems and weird voltages was: "We are aware about the issue and a new BIOS will be released soon to address this problem". When I asked about when this bios will be released he said "it should be released during february sir". Crossed fingers

    I got the notice today in the Asus provided software that runs on the system, I think it's called "EZ Update"...which picked up a new BIOS.

    I went along with it as I normally do, it was the only thing running on the system. There was another option too, some other update, so I just let ASUS do its thing. Rebooted once it told me to...system is now dead. I had to leave to work, but was wondering if this happen to anyone else?

    I will try to get it back up tonight, but I was getting strange responses once the system rebooted. I try to get into the BIOS by using F2 or DEL key and it comes up with a black screen, and at the top it says something about "Pointers misconfigured" or something like that, it's a little long, but I do remember seeing "pointers configured wrong" or something to the effect of Pointers being wrong.

    No clue what so ever about this one.

    I'll look to do a BIOS flash tonight when I get home, via USB stick, but was wondering if anyone else has experienced this with the newest BIOS release v 3007.

    Let me see if I can remember some specs about my system (I'm at work atm, so totally unsure about my rig)...

    ASUS Maximus VIII Extreme
    Intel i7
    (2) NVidia 980+

    Nothing running crazy, no overclocking or anything like that. Systems have been running fine since I put it all together (approx June 2015). I have done updates in the past via EZ Update, but this one seemed to break something. Not looking for a resolution, just wondering if anyone has gotten an error like this, about pointers misconfigured or something like that, and if so, what did they find out?

    Asus really screwed up with this BIOS. I can`t download it like I normally do. Yea, I know there are aother methods of installing it, but I want to do it by download DHCP.
