I also noted in one the last couple of recent version it actually overvolted what I manually entered in the SA and VCCIO, however I changed them to auto for a change and now they both use less voltage then I used to have to enter.

Right makes sense..

If it helps I have been finding these last 2 (bios 2201 and 2202 ) to require so much less tweaking then the previous bios as well boots up faster even with XMP, ss it seems the ram training is much faster.

I only have to set, Core clock, ring clock, core voltage, ram voltage, lvl 5, extreme and 120% cpu power now vs previous bios where I had to work with a number of other bios settings. It takes me longer now to update the bios then change the few settings I need to.


On a different note...please people that are more knowledgeable explain this to me.

1.CPU uCode update As I understand, this is update to what CPUs the motherboard can read correctly, and is normally used when new cpus are coming for that motherboard.

With HERO BIOS 2202, my system freezes when exiting the Optimize Fans / QFan Tuning window. Didn't get this with earlier BIOSes 0802 thru to 2001.
Click on Optimize Fans > QFan Tuning OK or CANCEL > Click on OK > Calibration proceeds > Results appears > Click on OK > Mouse & system freeze
Click on Optimize Fans > QFan Tuning OK or CANCEL > Click on CANCEL > Mouse & system freeze

Loaded optimized default settings, rebooted to try again - same problem. I went back to BIOS 2001 and it works again.

What fans are connected to the system and on what headers?

Mate, can i ask how you update your bios, do you use flashback, or put bios on usb stick and load from within the bios ? cheers

I'm trying to run Corsair 2x8GB 3000Mhz on a Z170-A with a locked 6700. Enabling XMP boots into Windows fine but unfortunately the system is unstable. Severely degraded performance of my 850 EVO to name one example.

I tried adjusting things manually aswell as some lower frequencies according to what i've read/searched online but have had no luck so far. I'm not well versed in the finer details of overclocking either which doesn't help. Am I correct in assuming i'm stuck at default 2133 here?

Only things listed as usual is not much:

Z170-A BIOS 2202
1.CPU uCode update
2.Support more PCIe-1394 devices.
File Size 8.44 MBytes

/edit Adding question to my initial post on the new bios.

Please explain this to me.

1.CPU uCode update As I understand, this is update to what CPUs the motherboard can read correctly, and is normally used when new cpus are coming for that motherboard.
uCode is Micro Code... this is the low level code that controls the cpu logic processors... a MC update may or may not be for "future cpus" most times it is to update processing. eg, there have been some processing errors traced back to intel microcode, this can be patched via a windows update until a bios update is released.

Folks I'm running Furmark now, and I see on 12 V line 11.904. But multimeter shows 12.12 V when I read the stuff on second CPU connector. Any ideas what can cause that?
It's Z170 Ranger.
