Does Asus have a mailing list for notifications when new BIOS's are released?

It looks like they are on a two-month release cycle. I'm hoping for a memory module to be supported by the z170-premium soon.

I've been told the QVL's are released quarterly.

I've decided on the Hero Alpha, but was surprised to see the memory I'd bought earlier (when I thought I was getting a Z170-Deluxe) is not listed on the QVL.

Do I take the chance that the Corsair CMK32GX4M2A2666C16 will work, or do I have to go with another choice which has the memory on the QVL (maybe the Maximus VIII Formula)?

this may be the first time I've seen someone buying a new MB and using ram-in-hand as the deciding factor.tongue.gif
Anyway - the corasir kit should be no problem.. If a kit is not on the QVL, it does not mean that it will not work with the MB.

Ha! Glad I could provide a first for you. biggrin.gif It is crazy, but hey, I paid over $200 for it way back when (long story; not relevant).

I was hoping it would most likely work, so glad to hear you think it should. I'll take the leap and hope it works out.

Thanks!

I'm sure, too -- one of the reasons I went with Asus. Thanks again.

i've had the z170 deluxe for about 9 months now. and have one thing that i haven't been able to solve. i'm on the latest bios, 1801

i have 3 monitors, a dell 30'' as my primary display, connected to a GTX 1080 w/ dual link DVI. my other 2 monitors are dell 20.1'' on the sides of the dell 30''. they both have DVI - Displayport adapters. these are both rotated into portrait mode.

when i boot the computer, the UEFI and windows loading screen shows up on one of the rotated dell 20.1'' monitors. is there a way to get the dell 30'' to be the primary display so that the UEFI shows up on it?

No, you cannot select the primary display for BOOT in a multi-display setup.

I guess you can use display port adapters on everything and just change the ports on the back of the GPU to the one that's shows in boot, that's what I did.
