im curious if it's the motherboard (i have an asus hero motherboard) or something to do with windows or a certain program that is causing it?

Make sure Windows Power Plan is set to balanced.

The above post ^ or you can do what I do and set high performance but change the CPU setting in power options in windows to throttle back down to 5%. (I set my HDD not to power down etc).

Also enable C sates and eist.

@Raja the 0901 bios for the Z 170 Deluxe when I updated was a beta bios. It is no longer marked a beta bios on the website. Are there any differences in the 0901 beta I download vs what is there now?

Hello

Try a different properly FAT32 formatted USB stick.

Yeh i used 3 drives to get to this one, works fine on hero viii board, now im updating ranger viii board, i checked to make sure it was fat32 and put only the file MAXIMUS-VIII-RANGER-ASUS-0801.CAP on drive, it sees file in bios for me to click on, i also tried renaming to M8R.CAP also but no joy.

Hello

With the file renamed M8R.CAP and placed on the root directory of a FAT32 formatted USB stick use USB BIOS Flashback. The correct USB port and procedure can be found in the included user manual.

I am worried of using the flashback option, as on the hero board, i had issues where i could not post after using flashback, if i use ez flash 3 in bios, i think i still have to rename bios file to M8R.CAP dont i ?
