I wonder if these are legit. Just might be worth paying $15 and be done with it. I just want to be assured they are an almost "certain fix"

I have downloaded the BIOS from different mirrors over a non-wifi connection, tried flashing 3 different times with same results. BIOS seems to be badly bugged or corrupt. If only you could flash to an older BIOS file this wouldn't even be an issue but all Asus methods of flashing forbid going to an outdated version. It's not like I have tri-SLI 680's or something, I can live with a stock 2500K until this debacle is resolved but it sure is annoying and time consuming.
My options at this point are... Bark someone's ear off tomorrow morning at Asus, buy the BIOS chip for my board for $15, wait for a fixed BIOS to be released, or the dreaded RMA.

Is this specifically for the latest BIOS (3402) of our board? Well, I can boot my RAM at 1600. What do you mean by "turbo multi missing"?

Yes 3402 and turbo multiplier missing means you can't overclock. It's acting as if I don't have a K series CPU. Just google "Asus turbo multiplier missing" and you'll see its a common issue after what appeared to be a successful BIOS flash. Others are missing some other OC settings as well like PLL voltage, etc. Luckily by looking up the issue I just toned my RAM (normally 1600 Mhz) down to 1333 and left everything else alone and I'm now able to boot into the system just without my 4.7 overclock frown.gif

So, spoke with Asus support today and they revealed a way to go back to an older BIOS...
Quote:
1. Install Asus Update.

2. In the Options menu of Asus Update, check the box "BIOS Downgradable" then hit Next.

3. Download any BIOS from http://support.asus.com/download%20for%20the%20motherboard%20you%20are%20flashing.

4. Unzip the file, run Asus Update and select "Update BIOS from File".

5. Browse to the .ROM file and select open. Then hit the flash key.

Without the BIOS Downgradable checked you will see an error that says your current BIOS image is newer than the one you are trying to flash. I hope this helps some of you. We also have some BIOS's on our website that say you cannot downgrade the BIOS once you flash it.

I tried this but got an error saying "Sorry, this application only supports Asus motherboards".... Seriously Asus!???

I'm downloading the full AI suite atm and I'll try that version, The Asus update version I have now was just downloaded from Softpedia because I couldn't find it at first on Asus' website. If this doesn't work I'll either have to RMA or purchase one of the BIOS chips for $14.99. I may just opt for the BIOS chip just to avoid any downtime.

So I shot a fresh install of W7 on a spare hard drive I had lying around and I got the Asus update from the AI suite to run and install the older BIOS however I'm still missing turbo multi in the BIOS!!!??? Am I missing something simple??? I'm losing my mind over this!

Here is what it should look like...
400

Here is my current BIOS screen shot...
450
Notice I am missing three options (Turbo Ratio, By All Cores, And Internal PLL)

BTW, I have "successfully" flashed each version of the BIOS with the same result each time (missing the 3 settings). For some reason I cannot flash to the original 0301 BIOS file but the other 3 newer files will flash with the Asus update tool from windows. I even used the DOS update method thinking it would be better... I think I simply have a fried BIOS chip. Probably going to order one tonight *sigh*

So I found an Asus forum where a moderator said once a BIOS is flashed bad it stays bad. When you flash a BIOS on an Asus board it doesn't erase the previous ROM and load an whole new one. It simply changes a few things, so I'm pretty much limited to RMA or order a new BIOS chip (which I will be doing). $24 is worth zero downtime. My system boots, just can't overclock.

He said something interesting about how newer BIOS versions have 2 sets of code, one for SB and one for IB and it can really mess things up. Probably why I can't flash the original 0301 ROM which probably only had SB code.

Here is his post. He was also ticked at some guy complaining.
Quote:
No, you do not understand what is happening here.
You are talking about a "normal" bios
The 3XXX bios are not normal
After flashing you have TWO CPU microcode loaded at same time - Ivy Bridge and SandyBridge
You are also UPGRADING not UPDATING the Intel MEI from version 7 to version 8 firmware - but ONLY for Ivy Bridge
And since ASUS never mentions what a new bios is doing, it also updates other OROMS or UEFI features we cant even know about. And once a bios is flashed bad - it STAYS BAD!

If you want to argue with me, then I am done here
I didnt type all that stuff just for you to ignore it.
Your safest option now is buy a new chip from ASUS
ASUS bios are locked, so to downgrade you need a flashing system that first erases the chip then writes the older bios.
If it fails then you have a bricked mobo.

Again sorry for hijacking the thread, I hope others read this and learn what rule I should have gone by......... If it's not broke, don't fix it!

Seeing as you're going to get a new chip anyhow, have you tried this?

http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1629404

This did work pre-3xxx firmware, I used it when I wanted to go back from 0902 to 0706. Either way, if you feel like playing with what appears to be a dead chip that you'll replace anyhow, give it a go.

BTW: which forum are you quoting from?
