Hello

EZ Flash does not require renaming the file. USB BIOS Flashback is the safest method of flashing the UEFI.

If i use flashback, do i have to clear cmos first, or just set all bios settings to optimized defaults ? thx

Hello

Should make no difference when using USB BIOS Flashback as the system is not powered on in a bootable state. But it is wise to always load default settings before flashing the UEFI.

8GB 3866 Mhz, XMP 4.5Ghz 1.37v on IGPU - all other voltages in auto.

Playing around with some new memory modules on my Hero this evening, got 2 kits of 8GB DDR4 4000MHZ Trident Z, I really like the heatspreaders, much better quality than any previous GSkill RAM that I've had. ran AIDA memory benchmark, not sure it means anything
2 modules runs at 4000mhz with the XMP profile 4 modules with the same settings runs at 3866







I haven't had time to really get into this, kind of waiting for an M8E and a better CPU but I need to play around with frequency verses timings, 2 vs 4 modules to see what works best

3600mhz seems like a good daily speed

I ran the CPU at 4600MHZ for all tests and VCCSA at 1.25 volts, VCCIO at 1.2 volts for all speeds, I did up my Vcore some for these tests, I haven't had time to see if it even needed it

Nope. Either revert your ram to stock or run hci memtest for stability to rule out ram issue.
