    Hello friend, once you have updated to the new version you have to go to configure the bios, but if I have not changed anything in bios, it is factory, what things would I have to configure.

    Hi frankie, please take a look at this FAQ:

    Essentially, no, you won't see any benefits.  Also keep in mind that NVIDIA has only announced specific support for the GeForce RTX 3060 when those cards launch.  Other 30 Series cards may require a driver and/or firmware update before they are considered supported, but NVIDIA has not yet announced any further details about which cards are and will be supported.
     
    However, since you have some time, it may be worth taking the time to confirm that you will not run into any issues when you disable CSM.

    Just flashed my Z390 Dark no problem.
    Should I go ahead and enable those two new settings? I do have an RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra but sounds like it is not supported in this regard yet. I guess would be no problem having them enabled though for if/when it does?

    Update:

    I got my PC going. I had to reset the bios settings by holding down the reset button. J think the problem was I turned on reaizable bar, but not the 4gb setting. When that was off, the system couldn't see my video card. Now that both settings are on, everything works fine now.

    ≈=======÷====÷÷÷÷÷÷÷==


    So, I just updated my Z390 FTW to 1.10, put all my settings back, and enabled resizable bar. It now will no longer boot. When I turn on the PC it starts out with eight beeps, then does the normal beeps and makes the going into the bios chirp. It then makes 5 more beeps and the keyboard goes unresponsive and I only get a blank screen. Any ideas?
