FWIW, this update is new uCode 3A for Kabylake. No update for Skylake, still the ancient 74. A2 appears to be the latest for Skylake.

Have you tried tuning each individual fan connected one at a time, starting with CPU_FAN and seeing when the freeze occurs?

Updated my bios to 2200 and now adaptive mode doesnt work anymore. It just stand at the turbo vcore. Anyone else have this problem with new bios?

Mine are mainly SanDisk sticks. The one I use for Flashback is SanDisk Ultra Flair 16GB USB3.0

BTW did u forget to rename the file accordingly for flashback? Eg for the HERO it needs to be M8H.CAP

I may try during the weekend when I have more time & energy. Meanwhile hoping to hear from other HERO users smile.gif

BTW any harm if I skip fan tuning and use the same pwm fan curves I've been using?

Yes I'm using that one, but at £6.95 is that relatively costly for you there?
I got mine relatively cheap after some coupon discount, at around 4.50 USD

I believe a smaller one sized one, or cheaper SanDisk model will work fine too. There are some SanDisk sticks with atrociously low write speeds, just avoid those
