Links should work better now :) These bioses are "one to rule them all", meaning they will work with all OS including XP.

I think we should call us very lucky that there are guides like this.

 

Everything we need to know, shared and at our disposal pretty much at the time of launch.

Is the scaling so wierd on these CPUs, my 6600K can do CB R15 5500 at 1.525Vcore, full pot, but can't make 5.6 at 1.7... Had similar issues with the 6700K...

Excellent guide especially on win7 and xp, I was able to install and use both OS on M8H, without the guide I would have failed extremely hard :D

Gene prooves good on running 4x4 tight 3466C12 AFR however 3600c12 is a problem of cpu imc as i needed 1.37V VCCIO to gain stability :D Need to find a better imc for sure,keep trying to improve effciency.

you need to tinker some voltages to lift the wall. I had similar issue on most of my cpus, 5.9 cinebench 1.65v wall, then once you find the volt that needs increasing it went to 6.3 cinebench 6.5 pifast

Time for a first facit on the HeroVIII I tested, other than on Z87 when I was disappointed I am happy with the board, solid performance and cpu-clocks, good mem oc, only thing I miss is dual BIOS, but I think this is made up by USB-flashback, and decent pricing. A few results:

cinebench15451933c15toyu1o.jpg

Mems are 3200c16 retails, full slot worked as well as shown, solid, in better hands with better sticks it might fly a lot higher :D

I grabbed a Hero Saturday and the thing has been a pain, lots of code 41 and 55 with various BIOS versions even on XMP settings. Slots A2 and B2 seem to be the culprits, which kills any 4 DIMM clocking (which was what I got it for in the first place vs the Asrock Formula).

Might be a bad sample, compability, IMC or mems, such things can happen. Reminds me of my two z97 Asrock OPCF who weren´t able to clock PSC even at 2600C8 with Haswell 4x70k cpus, sometimes you run out of luck, sorry you couldn´t enjoy the board :(

4k c16 on 3200C16 ripjawV, only mems I have, this sample was provided by ebay and sponsored by my wallet :D - it is nearly impossible to get higher binned Samsungs in germany at all, and I don´t see reason to buy abroad

Well I tried that probably 15 times. I got enough of that error as I basically tried everything, different isos, different bootloaders so i just burned the iso to disc and installed that way.
