ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread - Page 480

post #4791 of 5773
I am still on old bios 0401 from last year on my ranger viii, and been trying the last 8 months to update and always get the same error "selected file is not a proper bios" tried all the usual things like change usb sticks, different names and different ways, so my question is, i know there was a important update that put right the wrong fclk 800 setting, so seeing as i cant update my bios, is there anyway i can manually/overclock a setting to get it to the correct 1000 setting ?, im overclocked at a simple 45 x 100 all on auto, thx, oh, my pc has been stable from the start.

NOTE: The new bios's added a separate FCLK tab so you could change value in bios, but my bios dont have that, so hoping i can get to 1000 FCLK another way ?

I was thinking about doing the following on the first oc session. First a bit of info the ram in my sig has a special xmp profile for 3333mhz if used in an rog board like mine.

1: multiplier to 46, leave voltage alone, 2: enable 3333mhz xmp profile, 3: run rog realbench and the overclock.net x264 stress test. 4: report back here with results for further advice. How long should I let the tests run?

Why would you just not read the OC guide from tweak town?

Use the overview in the OP. You don't want to be pushing memory too far initially. Run Realbench for 1 to 2 hours to start.


Also, please do not feed the troll.

Hey I just got a Samsung 950 Pro drive. I installed it in the M.2 slot. In the Z170 Deluxe bios under the Onboard Device Config then Sata Mode Config I set it to M.2 instead of Sata Express. However when i reboot and check the bios it switches the m.2 mode back to Sata Express. When using an Nvme M.2 drive shouldn't is be set to M.2 and not Sata express?

That error is usually displayed if the USB flash drive format is NTFS.

For BIOS flash, always use a small FAT32 formatted stick with only the BIOS file copy.

I've use the EZ flash from within bios (after a clrcmos) and it works fine too. Did you try EZ flash?
