Yea i wouldnt trust the BIOS period at this point, dmm at this point is the best way to check all voltages.

Searching this thread and over on the Asus forums, it seems many people are encountering this bug (build works absolutely fine, on stock and overclocked settings, then it randomly crashes out of Windows and will never load back in. We can all see BIOS just fine, but when loading an OS or a bootable media we get crashes with !-code 8 and the DRAM light blinking even though the DRAM modules work and have been memtest'ed on another system.) Not sure if this is something that's being looked into but it's been happening on all released BIOS versions.

Have you tried fixing CPU SOC voltage to .95v. Try fixed manual voltages on DRAM, CPU SOC and CPU Core before RMA. That's the last thing I can give you.

It's Asus C6H, not CH6; Fighting the wars that matter.

And here's ^ another guy with a completely random qCode 8 that nobody can seem to resolve, yet multiple people are experiencing.

Random, inconsistent bugs aren't worth arguing about.

Yeah, having to search online for code meanings isn't exactly great for the average user. Hopefully things smooth out over time but it's been a rough start for a lot of reasons.

I'm not saying he's not smart, what i'm saying is just because it's worked for him doesn't mean others here haven't had issues, and we have found the fix to be upping the SOC voltage until a more permanent solution is in place. It's not an insult to the guy, just simply stating that just because he says it doesn't mean it's 100%... hope that makes sense. It's not an insult.

The average user isn't buying a crosshair 6 hero and overclocking their system, we bought into this life.

@elmor

Coldboot issue is back even when the system was heated up before so it is definetely a serious issue. Even at stock clocked 2133 MHz RAM the issue is persistent.
All other settings as mentioned before on optimized defaults. Error 8 when the system was running was from CPU virtualization option also as mentioned. But was fixed with disabling the setting.

Hope this helps.
