    Both boards are great but IMO, Asus takes bios adjustments to far on the platform...... GL with the maximus!

    The BIOS problem doesn't change my opinion of the board at all, either. It's a great board, it's just the platform itself has this issue that if you are aware of it, is not really an issue. We've been spoiled for some time with some pretty incredibly bullet-proof BIOSes for some time on the Intel side, so it's about time they have some issues like this.

    What makes it important, though, to me, is that I can make this "corruption" happen just at stock. Which means it can happen to any Windows8 user, not just those overclocking. It's really suck to have normal users with bad VGAs end up with corrupt BIOSes on the their boards, but that is totally possible here.

    I've been using bios 804 with Windows 8 and it's fine. No issues... and I'm not about to try a newer bios.
