To top it off, they then release, after the fact, a new stable revision that's LOWER than the latest BETA. Those of us who decided to upgrade to the 2001 now cannot move back to the new stable rev because it's an "image outdated"!! ***!

I had to crank up my vcore (resulting in higher temps) with this BETA BIOS in order to get the same stability as I got with 1606.

That's why I want out.
Thanks for the detailed answer, rep+

i found the upgrade worth it for one reason: SLEEP now functions 100% correctly.

as i mentioned earlier, you can only roll back on the same codepath...

20xx is a new codepath, so u cant roll back to 19xx without hoop jumping as HAF_Wit has linked to.

you take a larger risk of bricking your board by doing so.

There are two bootblocks in the BIOS that control the crashfreebios feature. The ASUS flash utility manages those bootblocks to make sure you cant brick your board. By using a flash utility NOT from asus specifically, if anything goes sideways, you could corrupt those bootblocks and brick your board permenantly.

The BIOS chip(at least in P8P67 Pro i have) is removable. And flashing it by programmer costs(at least in Poland) about 30zł(less than 10USD), so you can always found someone in your neighbourhood with proper hardware and go to them if anything goes wrong.

I need some help from y'all.

I just flashed the new bios 2001 from the AI suite and it said it successfully flashed.

I rebooted as instructed and went through post, and then to a black screen with a blinking underscore a few lines from the top, and the board is showing error code AE. Legacy error according to manual.

I've changed all my boot devices around thinking it might of changed them. I put the bios tool and an older bios that was shipped with my board, the 1606, on a USB to try and roll back to that bios to fix it. When i hit f8 to load the boot manager i get two USB options that show and i've tried both options to which nothing works. It goes back to the blank screen with the blinking underscore cursor.

Can someone help me or did the 2001 bios brick my mobo?!

What board do you have exactly? After getting into the BIOS, reload Optimized Defaults and reboot.

If you're still getting the same blinking cursor, try clearing the CMOS.

Actually pressing the CMOS button in the rear is the first thing i did upon getting this screen sorry for leaving that out. I counted to 30 seconds, but maybe i need to hold it more. I'll remove battery for 5 minutes as that seems to always be a more concrete method.

I have p8p67 deluxe b3.

Reloading defaults did not work btw.

My bios has been running default settings, except for the manual override on my memory to run at 1600 because it's seeing it as 1333. I can't seem to overclock the board anyways because of the memory incompatibility. DDR3 1600 240 pin 4 x 4gb corsair vegeance. When i try to over clock i get the memory light (which is a whole other issue). Actually that is why i decided to update the bios in the first place, thinking that it might fix the memory incompatibility and allow me to overclock the rig.

It's normal for the board to see your memory as 1333MHz since that is what the memory controller supports up to natively.

When you changed it to 1600, did you change the memory timings and voltage? Since you're running 4 modules, you may have to increase VCCIO a little.

No I didn't. The timings are automatically set to 9-9-9-24 which is the correct ratings. As far as the voltage I'm unaware; I've never played with tweaking the memory settings that much. However, now it doesn't even matter since the bios update seems to have locked me out of using the computer completely.

Does that memory not have an XMP profile for your board? You'd go to the AI tweaker page of the advanced side of the BIOS then set the "AI Overclock Tuner" from either auto of manual to "XMP"

Yes I'm aware of that. That's not the issue. Making sure the new 2001 bios didn't brick my board and getting my rig back to running is the issue.
