Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Downgrade Bios

Others might be available on Tweaktown.

Are you saying your MAC, UUID, Serial Number, etc has changed since flashing to F22?  This usually happens when you replace a BIOS chip...  not when you upgrade via flash.  As mentioned by sandokan there is increased risk when using a hex editor on your BIOS.

Intel NIC MAC address change when you downgrade BIOS with FPT (this is also written in the readme file). The only way to correct the MAC address it to edit the BIOS with an hex editor and flash it again (with q-flash).
Actually FPT is the only tool to downgrade from a Kabylake bios to a Skylake bios.

Hello,

I have the following:

Gigabyte z270X Gaming 7
Corsair H100i V2 cooling
(Hopefully Soon) I will be buying a Gigabyte Aorus 1080 ti Xtreme edition
Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x8GB DDR 3000
Corsair K95 RGB Keyboard
Roccat Kone XTD

I noticed that RGB Fusion was compatible with Corsair Vengeance RGB Ram and Coolermaster Keyboard and Mouse. I wanted to know if there was going to be any updates for compatibility  with H100i V2/K95 RGB/Dom Plat RAM. I assume the video card will sync with the motherboard. I am not too worried about the mouse as I am positive it will not be compatible, but I would like to know if more legacy Corsair products will start seeing compatibility.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Downgrade Bios

how do you do the hex edit on for the Nic to get original Mac address back?. Could someone who has knowledge do this for me. i can handle using fpt tool and flashing but i don't know about Hex editing is little in the danger zone for me.  i been having a time with the newest F22 bios for the Gigabyte z170 UD5. I was on F5 and it worked fine besides hiccups getting ram to run at rated speeds but now on the new bios my whole system feels sluggish. the new bios look and feels sluggish and very amateur and my ram which is rated at 3000mhz is set to 2800mhz when i set the XMP profile. If i set the values manually i can't get it to boot at all or one stick will register at 3000mhz and the other stick the system won't even recognize even though it's plugged in. i would rather have the old plain blue bios like the old days. If this bios doesn't get situated i'm selling this whole system off for something else. very shameful to be a gigabyte customer at the moment.

Also can Gigabyte provide me with a older bios i can flash like F5? I shouldn't have to hex edit to get things back to normal.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Z170XP-SLI Bios F21
« Last post by Jimmy2Times on March 25, 2017, 07:48:37 pm »
Can anyone tell me what has changed in BIOS F21 for the z170xp-sli board.
The description only says, Quote: "V core Voltage adjust", not even a proper sentence.
I read many bad things about the F20 bioses, and am surmising that the F21 may possibly fix an issue CAUSED BY the F20....
Or does this 'voltage adjust' apply to the board in general. I am running F6, should I update?
Can someone tell me exactly what the changes in F21, are besides Kaby Lake support...
Thank you

Overclocking motherboards with Intel processors / Re: ga z170n gaming 5 question
« Last post by MavekoBR on March 25, 2017, 05:43:57 pm »
Hi all I'm a noob looking for some info from you knowledgeable chaps and chappesses  :)

Is there a bios available for the ga z170n gaming 5 rev 1.0 motherboard which will allow for overclocking skylake non k cpu?

I'm having problems sourcing one for this particular model as it isn't listed on overclocking.guide or your beta bios list on the forum (or at least I can't find it).

Thanks in advance!

The processor other than Model K, does not let you overclock because it is factory locked. But this hand card is also impossible to update her BIOS, just the error or even binds. I'm almost opening up a topic for this.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: RGB Fusion & GA-Z270-X Ultra Gaming

The Gigabyte app centre is poor quality. I uninstalled everything apart from Intel Extreme tuning which is not written by Gigabyte. I set the rgb in the bios which works fine. I get the impression that Gigabyte hardware is really good but their software app departmentt has some catching up to do..

Motherboards with AMD processors / Motherboard will not POST
« Last post by mmaffia1992 on March 25, 2017, 02:59:03 pm »
Hi, I'm building a gaming PC and I'm having an issue with the motherboard POSTing. Any help would be appreciated.

Parts list:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-AB350-GAMING
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700
GPU: GeForce GTX 1060
PSU: SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze EVO Edition
RAM: 2 x 8GB CORSAIR Vengance DDR4
Heatsink: ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa

The  CPU debug light come on one of my mobos so I exchanged the CPU and that's not the issue.

I have tried a total of 3 motherboards now, in this order:
ASUS Prime X370-Pro
MSI B350 Tomahawk
Gigabyte GA-AB350 (current)

None of them posted. The MSI B350 had a debug light that said the issue was with the processor, so I exchanged the Ryzen with Newegg thinking it was the issue. I got the Gigabyte one yesterday, still nothing, debug light still on. That's when I got the Gigabyte mobo and still no dice.

The PSU has been tested with a hazard fraught meter and everything checks out. Since it's literally my third mobo, I doubt that's the issue. Same goes for the CPU. The literal only thing I haven't checked is the RAM and that's because I don't have any other spare DDR4 sticks lying around and I also don't have another computer that takes DDR4, so today I am going to buy some new RAM of a different type since Corsair isn't officially supported by the mobo.

I tried using one stick of RAM in every slot possible, so I guess it's possible the RAM is either incompatible or just bad, so that's my next step to try.
I have also been testing with a tried and true 100% verified working GPU as well.

Any help will be really appreciated. I feel like I've checked everything. I've gone through all of these online guides for when mobos don't POST and done everything. It's my first time working with a build this new, so maybe there's something I'm missing? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
