Weeks? This would be like hours.

Anyways, BIOS Updates are always appreciated :-) Except I am sure I should be doing something else tonight besides flashing..

Only one reboot for this. Nice still weird how it goes to the AMI screen. Then you do the setup and it boots five times before running normally. However, looks stable to me. Auto overclock and all. Nice. I only get to 4.3 without adding voltage but that's ok.

What is the best motherboard to use for i7 and Z170? Im leaning Asus Extreme but it stil is not out. Ill be using my 2z 780's in SLI untill the next wave of video cards come out. I will be using a custom water loop. I also want the fastest SSD possible without using a PCIe slot. I want max performance for 2 graphics cards. I am coming from a FX8350 system.. Ive not done an Intel system since P4's. I need RAM recommendation as well, 16-32G.

Bios 1101 (Deluxe) shows still wrong CPU voltage. Bios 1,345v adaptative - CPU-z (AIDA) with 1.488v? Bios 901 shows correctly.

It shows the voltage correctly in the EZ page of the UEFI, but the adaptive voltage isn't applied correctly, or at least how it did in previous versions of the BIOS.
I've also noticed that 1101 is very sluggish in advanced settings as well, and takes ages to show the monitored voltages.
1101 is another dud IMO.

So it's the same problem with the 1003 version that they removed? It gives too much voltage. In 1003 I had 1.315 set in adaptive in bios and it gave me 1.48 something. It wasn't reported incorrectly as my chip overheated in like 2s to 100C. I got scared like hell. Stupid Asus and intel made me run prime with almost 1.5V on average air cooling. I am lucky I didn't fry the chip.

So STAY CLEAR of these **** bioses until they fix it. If you want to try them please do not put the CPU under stress as it will definitely throttle.

New Bios for Z170-A. Let's hope adaptive voltage is fixed. ^^

Or you can either offset the difference until another BIOS is rolled out with an update from intel for the PCU, or use a fixed voltage.

Offsetting the difference with adaptive had no effect when I tried it with 1003, voltages were still way too high.. Had to go back to offset voltage.
