    Yeah, Asus where's our Maximus VIII UEFI version 3703 at for all Maximus VIII motherboards.
    Still waiting for it on my Maximus VIII Hero, too.
    I'll really be glad when I upgrade to Ryzen or Ryzen 2 later this year and I'm making sure my next motherboard is from Gigabyte or MSI, not Asus or it's Asrock.
    After 2 different Asus motherboards and following this forum for years, I've come to realize that Asus suck's big time on drivers, uefi,software update's and support.
