These are my 3 usb sticks i have, maybe someone can suggest a usb stick to try that works 100% for them, maybe all mine are not correct, to big a size for instance.

Sandisk Cruzer Blade 8GB USB 2.0
Kingston Technology DataTraveler DTSE9 G2 16GB USB 3.0
Unamed USB Key Ring 2GB USB 2.0 i think not 3.0

Tried this ? :

Fully recovered using an HDD bios file. Just pointed it to the HDD with 0801beta. And had a power interrupt during initial flash of this R5E-10 with 0801beta... flashback would not work, the bios recovery module worked fine and asks for the DVD (USB with this board) a USB or to locate the bios file on your HDD. HAnds on current experience.

Hmmm...Like Flashback, either it doesn't always work or the Asus Rep in the lower link below was short on options;

You should try this method, BIOS updater should be on the DVD. If not please stop clogging this thread with your issue, thanks.

you should be able to set the LED to change color based on cpu temp from within the Aura software

Nice! What about GPU temperatures? Are those piped into FanXpert, so you could set case fans to follow the GPU temperature, instead of the CPU temperature?

And, on the flip side, I know SpeedFan can monitor GPU temperatures: is it compatible with y'alls boards? I'm looking at the Z170 Sabertooth S.

That looks like it has way more options in AURA than mine does. What version is that?

Mine looks like this...

Does anyone know how to setup the onboard audio for virtual surround with stereo headset? Do I need to set windows playback settings to 5.1/7.1 ? What about the realtek audio manager (SupremeFX menu)? Optional speaker settings? Full range w/ surround on or off? I know you're supposed to set ingame audio to 5.1/7.1 but most games don't even have those options and just go off of windows or some other settings.

Also, should I be using the back ports for my headset or the front panel? From my knowledge I should be using rear ports because front panel ports could have more interference from analog going through the wire across my system to the front, but ASUS manual says that the sonic sense amp to detect the impedance only works on front panel?

welp - just had to start an RMA on my 170 Deluxe...having a ton of weird issues now that I didn't have before a few weeks back.

Computer hangs on the "restarting" screen and I need to power down manually by holding the case power. Then, to reboot, I need to pull the plug on the PSU and attempt to turn on the computer (usually repeat this a few times). Then, if I'm lucky, my computer will boot to the windows login screen. I say lucky because my screen doesn't turn on during post anymore (I already RMAd my GPU, so that's not it, and replaced the RAM) so I can't get into BIOS or see if the computer is working.

Then, random cut outs of video during normal use. Went on support call and started an RMA after clearing CMOS and pulling the battery didnt do anything. Only thing that worries me (besides the ASUS RMA reputation I've read about) is that there are so many weird issues I'm worried a repair wont fix everything. And they are "out of stock" of the deluxe, so I NEED to do repair. I'm gonna call back and see if I can try waiting until they get more in stock so I can get a new one as a replacement to be sure that nothing is missed...
