    ASUS Z170E Bios 3801 is up


    Check your M/B web page. I'm aware that I am probably the only one that ever bought an ASUS Z170E, but all the Z170 models come out about the same time, give or take.

    Strange, my EZ Flash says I`m up to date with 3703

    I see no details for 3801, so I see no reason to install it.

    Hi @AddRAM. Yes my EZ Flash gave same results, so I D/L 3801 and updated. The details on my M/B page were same as last time, improved memory compatibility and microcode update. Also, the last BIOS update also happened the same way. If you do it, check the dates. It's 4/20/2018 on M/B page, but the D/L when updated says March 14, 2018 in BIOS and HWINFO.
    I'm glad you mentioned that about EZ Flash cause that had me a little worried, especially cause 3801 doesn't show at all if you try to update in windows. No problems or differences noticed.

    Ya I downloaded it and tried that way, but it said the file was unreadable, so I left it alone.

    It looks like my 3703 did everything your 3801 did.

    So it`s staying as is :)

    So how do you like the PG279Q ?

    I`ve had mine for about 3 weeks

    I like the monitor a lot. Had it since November 2017 for my birthday. I play everything with gsync and vertical sync on and framerate set to 141 fps. Smooth as silk.
    That 3801 bios updates the microcode and I could see that using the Inspectre tool. The CPUID is now 506E3.

    Ya I had 2 1080 Ti`s in there pushing the PG279Q, but I only need one, so I took the other one out. :)

    Most games today don`t use SLI, Friday the 13th doesn`t and I play that ALOT :)

    I play it on Epic settings and the 1080 Ti just chews it up.

    I have a Z170 ROG Maximus board. There is no update for it. Just the 3703 that I already have.

    Just updated my Z170 Pro with the latest, 3801. Using the Internet didn't find any update so downloaded it and installed that way.
