You should be able to type the voltage in the appropriate box. Don't forget the decimal point!

Thanks for the offer, Deders (and everyone else for their opinions). I'm just gonna buy a copy of it, and not hassle with the upgrade. It'll be clean. I've got a couple other things to try while I wait for shipping. One, I'm wondering if going back to an earlier BIOS would change things. It seems that those that actually have it working, did it in the past (at least that's my sense). Also got a PM of something to try as a last resort. If it works, I'll post. If not, then I have Win 10 coming...

Hello

I am knew to computer building such and have been having issues after updating my BIOS. My asus z170-a came stock with BIOS version 1101 and works great except for adaptive mode. When update to later BIOS versions, my computer will almost never restart correctly after hitting "save and exit." The computer never cycles back on with the newer BIOS versions. It will just idle forever with no display after I click "save and exit" and even after the BIOS finishes processing when being updated. After updating I have to clear the CMOS to get a POST. XMP profile works with a the click of the mouse in version 1101 but not on any of the newer versions as well. I have updated the BIOS using a flash drive and by using the internet tool within the BIOS. I need some help. I literally have no idea what to do.

Does it happen even if you don't change a setting from bios defaults?

The only way I boot into windows after an update is if I hold the power button for 10 seconds to completely shut it down due it its constant idle, then turn in back on again.

Thanks for such a quick response!

The board I am using now is the second z170-a I have had this issue on. The first board I had, I returned because of this issue, not realizing rolling the BIOS back to stock would fix the issue. It seems strange this same issue would happen on two different boards... I did not realize it was the BIOS on the first board because I flashed 1402 on it before I did anything else.

I'm just wondering if there's a particular setting involved that it is causing the problem.

I contacted Asus support for the first board and the guy gave me an RMA number to send it in, but I just returned it. I contacted them again for this board and they helped me realize rolling it back fixed my issue, and their advice was to not update unless there was an issue. Now that I have successfully over clocked to 4.7 at 1.32V I would like to set it to adaptive, but when I do the voltage spikes to 1.5 under load. That is a problem and I'm guessing has been addressed in newer bios versions. So instead of fixing the issue, they avoided it completely.

My Hero and i7 6700k have been running solid since release. I am using BIOS 1001 (from October 2015), again this is for the Asus Z170 HERO.

Any reason I should update the bios?

Just saw the price on the 6700k is $413.99 on NewEgg. Why so high now??
