    Mike; one thing I noticed with the 3XXX bios update that I didn't experience with the 2XXX update is that after the bios update and the system restart, it didn't restart just once but 2-3 times. You will see that some on the ROG forum mention this. It might be specific to certain Z170's.

    If it happens to you, I'm sure you know, don't do/touch anything and let it do its thing. It gets me into bios then Windows just fine after a couple of resets.
    I've noticed that restart thing as well on this Z170 Pro with the 3XXX updates. When I updated to 3201 my reaction was "wth." But yea, with 3401 I expected it and you're right just let it go and do its thing.

    OldMike; I think you are getting all good advice here. Personally I set defaults both before the bios update and after when it sends you into the bios. Color me cautious. I would never do a bios update with a set OC.

    I typically have profile 1 set to 4.0 with xmp, profile 2, with 4.6 xmp and profile 3 with 4.8 xmp. As Dude mentions, all these profiles will be wiped out with the bios update. It's like the manufacturer is telling you to try your personal preferences and OC again AFTER the bios update.

    I too have had no issues with the 3401 bios update, including no issues with xmp. I THINK the Asus bios' after the 2XXX series support Kaby. Asus came out with new bios' (3XXX) across the board on the Z170 MB around the end of last year which was likely just that, Kaby support. But you're right. I haven't seen Asus themselves state that but I don't see Asus saying much of anything on the ROG forum. You could call them and ask to make sure. I did call Asus support once on a different MB issue. I did get through to them.
