    ASUS EZ Flash 3

    Guys, what do you think about this built-in BIOS flasher? What method do you prefer: "via Storage Devices" or "via Internet"?
    What, do you think, is the best/safest way to update the BIOS: both above or even through "BUPDATER" under DOS?
    Btw, is it possible to make a backup with this utility? I have heard ASUS EZ Flash 2 had that feature.

    Hi KotTHECat

    I've used the ez flash automatic updater a few times and it has worked great for me, select via internet and DHCP (I think, the one that has the earth) and sit back and watch it do it's thing.

    It will restart a time or two during the bios update process.

    I'm not sure about a back up I don't worry with that, I put the bios version on a usb flash drive for safe keeping.

    I EZ flashed my Z170-A BIOS when I first got it (3007). Data on my SSD became corrupted and I had to reinstall Windows.

    I seem to be experiencing a lot of issues with my new build. The most I've ever experienced.
