bcavnaugh"Update reset all my BIOS settings including overclocks to default" Be Lucking you did not Kill Your Bios Chip. "First go into your BIOS and load defaults, save and exit" From Post #1 above."99% of users who are bricking their Bios forget one major step and that is to set the Bios Back to the Default or Optimized Settings." Before you update your BiosPlug in a USB Thumb Drive and use F12 to snap shot each setting page that you want to keep the info on to reuse.The last OC you used on an older Bios may or may not work on a newer Bios so sometimes you have start over with your overclock settings with each new Bios.
954kevinforgive my ignorance, does the bios need to set to default settings before doing the usb method? or is that only for the windows installation? i updated to 2.03 from 1.04 and the mouse cursor in bios wasnt working properly as it had before. i tried a different mouse and it was fine. i didnt reset the bios to default before following the instructions for the usb install because its not specifically mentioned there.
lowe0Heads up... we're going to need another update, to fix this one, as Intel shipped crashy microcode.https://arstechnica.com/g...n-and-spectre-patched/
pittbullflashed bios bricked my board the dang bios went through 100% locked board into C STATE Waiting on RMA this is the slowest RMA I have ever had from EVGA kind of disappointing I wanted Advanced RMA with one or 2 days shipping I could not access anything on pc so just now getting on to see RMA has not even been processed or shipped in 2.5 DAYS time What is going on? Please dont tell me EVGA is degrading on service not even got a update if they have a Z170 or I'm getting a z270 etc which would be nice but I just want my system back up so I can finish my business signs before work season. But I flashed USB when I got the board when they came out I flashed windows method it was flawless. I don't see how my cpu would be fried not had a lick of issue anywhere on my system. Not even been running OC and have been constant quarterly at most stability test. If the flash somehow jolted some wattage into CPU and toasted it ima be super pissed because I am about poor as it gets from dang near breaking my neck and back last year and having to drop a ton of work. But he process via USB went all the way through 100% progress bar shut down, with a CLICK on powering back up which is odd then C state tore it down to barebones C state no matter the method. Been kicking rocks for 2 days now fixing to use this thing as a skeet for my new 12guage All RMAs I have processed since my PC life over a decade and always used EVGA this is slowest advanced rma ever I barely am able to read anything ATM I am on a half fried evga 780i FTW max res 800x600 with ungodly lag and screen tear but at least I was able to get online and check I did pay for the RMA which I thought I may not have since I have heard jack s%%$ in 2 days Super pissy because compared to past this is like waiting on something from a B grade company in comparison to latter support I have dealt with. Was informed by new tech not talked to would receive information 2 days ago about which board was being sent out but nah didnt happen. Tech also informed me I had 2 Bios on board I had to inform tech he was wrong because FTW is a single BIOs board
