Check ou the list below for the most recent releases of ASUS UEFI updates.
For the majority of users if you currently have a system working free of issues then I would advise THERE IS NO NEED TO UPDATE YOUR ( UEFI / BIOS ).
Conditions I would recommend you update the UEFI are noted below.
CAUTION NOTICE - ISSUES THAT MAY OCCUR WITH UPDATING YOUR UEFI Advisory note – Updating the UEFI can affect RAID configurations due to the option ROM potentially being updated / modified, this can render a previously configured RAID unusable.
As such it is always advised if you are running a RAID to research prior to the update as well as complete a backup of important data.
The extracted content will have a file with an exe extension.
These along with other low level adjustments to the UEFI can change the stability or validity of an overclocked system.
You must acquire the BIOS upgrade software from a reliable source.
It is always recommended to download the BIOS upgrade software directly from the manufacturer’s website.
This can also occur with boards that are refreshed.
An example would be X99 DELUXE to X99 DELUXE II - The DELUXE II is similar in many regards and many aspects of updates in regards to performance tuning or compatibility will be phased into the board at is production.
