    Maximus VIII Ranger BIOS corrupted after USB BIOS flashback

    I fixed it. The flasher (CH341A) was delivered today. I put my BIOS chip on the tool, made a full backup and used FD44 to inject the serial number, UUID and MAC to the fresh ASUS BIOS. A new bin file was generated. Then erased the chip complely and flashed the BIOS and bingo, it's back. The...

    Maximus VIII Ranger BIOS corrupted after USB BIOS flashback

    Absolutely. And the Ethernet MAC address too probably (in case of Intel LAN). However, I might have an idea to restore those. Using CoffeeTime to edit the BIOS file and putting those information, it should work fine. Even if the existing BIOS is completely corrupt, I still have the box with all...

    Maximus VIII Ranger BIOS corrupted after USB BIOS flashback

    That's exactly what I have done. Ordered a CH341A from Amazon. It should get delivered today. eBay.in was shut down on 2018 due to poor sales and issues with shipping. After that it is there but usually costs a lot in shipping or the product cannot be delivered. I searched for the BIOS chip and...

    Maximus VIII Ranger BIOS corrupted after USB BIOS flashback

    I know but eBay service is very poor here in India. I did try it but same issue persists. I am pretty sure nothing else is wrong with the board as it worked just 5 mins before the update. I didn't even touch the CPU socket. Just updated via flashback and attempted powering it on and since then...

    Maximus VIII Ranger BIOS corrupted after USB BIOS flashback

    Hello everyone. So I have a Maximus VIII Ranger motherboard which I was using with a modded BIOS for Skylake OC because my old 7600K had a faulty memory controller. I got an used 7600K for a steal price (tried and tested working) and hence was flashing the latest BIOS back again using BIOS...

    i5 6500T (Skylake) overclocking on Maximus VIII Ranger (Z170)

    Thanks for the response. I am still looking out for an used 7600K or a 7700K but these are really hard to find here for a decent price. Coming to the real question now, what do you guys suggest? Shall I continue with my i5 7600K @ 4.9 GHz (still possible even after almost 4 years) with single...

    i5 6500T (Skylake) overclocking on Maximus VIII Ranger (Z170)

    Hello all and good day! I recently got an i5 6500T for dirt cheap (my old 7600K has a faulty memory controller) and with the modded BIOS (ver. 0018), I was able to overclock it to 4.4 GHz on the Maximus VIII Ranger (Z170). Thing is, as mentioned in many forums, cache performance, especially L1...

    i5 7400 overclocking possible on Maximus VIII Ranger?

    Not getting for a good price. People are selling them for like 13000 to 14000 INR used which is the cost for a Ryzen 5 3500 or 3500X. :(

    i5 7400 overclocking possible on Maximus VIII Ranger?

    Okay. My bad. I guess I will then have to stick with stock clocks with overclocked memory. Nevertheless, what do you suggest? Faulty i5 7600K with all cores at 5.0 GHz with single channel memory vs Good i5 7400 at stock with dual channel memory? Just wanted to have a backup gaming system...

    i5 7400 overclocking possible on Maximus VIII Ranger?

    Thanks for the input. Now here's the thing. To simulate a i5 7400, I fixed the multiplier of my 7600K to 35 and tried overclocking using the BCLK. It has been an excellent chip and I know it goes up to 5.2 GHz with the multiplier. And I was able to overclock the BCLK to as high as 145.5 MHz...

    i5 7400 overclocking possible on Maximus VIII Ranger?

    Hello all. This is for my old system which used to have an i5 7600K and an ASUS Maximus VIII Ranger (Z170) - BIOS updated for Kaby Lake chips. The i5 7600K has a faulty memory controller and none of the slots of channel A work. I have tested the board with my friend's 6600K and all the slots...
