Here's what you do. Check your mobo manual and I will be shocked, assuming this is on your sigrig, that such a modern Asus mobo doesn't have a flash utility built right into CMOS in an unwriteable area which used to be reserved as the simple BootBlock.

Back in the day, and I mean even on 386s (nearly pre-historic, right ) the BootBlock had enough basics to run an ISA video card and a floppy drive so recovery under almost any circumstances was possible. Do you really suppose your system is less functional? It is far more costly to mobo builders to deal with support than to just build failsafes right into it. It's not gonna brick.

At worst you won;t be able to see the screen so in the manual look for what keystroke (usually something like F6) will open the built-in flasher, Just read all the info in the manual about recovery and load your new bios image on a usb stick and you're golden.

Have you tried shutting down all non essential processes IN windows, and reflashing from windows?

Do kind of a fake clean boot.

isint your mobo suposed to have 2 Bioses?
if so then you'll be fine and should just restart and then follow intructions on your mobo manual to restore the first one.

There's absolutely no way you should be using the x6 on that motherboard.
Unheatsinked 3+1 power + tower heatsink. The 3+1 power is enough of an excuse. No 3+1 phase should ever run anything above 95W.

Can we then conclude that you in fact did not RTFM?

Now I am sorry to say this but what a kick to the groin.

Here's hope that you fix it all up.
