@Moonman Have you done any core or memory overclocking?

to finally answer this:

it seems to be fully functional oc wise.

Only thing unusual is: power-limits need to remain on auto. Otherwise it'll power throttle.

TurboV also no problem.

Maximus VIII Impact running with 9900K, should be no issue with 8700K/8086K.

CPU Pad Mod I just made.

2 pins isolated as per attached image.

Flashed with programmer.

Bios - MAXIMUS-VIII-IMPACT-2202-CFLmod.rar

Hi! can I still use this modded bios? I'm planning to buy a 9900k. also which ram is best to use in combination with this motherboard and the 9900k? I have a 3000mhz lpx now.

Do I need to solder like the one in the first picture? and for the second picture, how can i isolate those 2 circles? and short the other 2?

Hope someone can help. thanks!

Hey guys,

I got a working Z270 XP that I did on my Maximus 9 Apex. That board since went kablamo. I want to keep using that Windows with a Z270F Gaming Strix. It boots and works but I don't have any chipset or USB support. Any hints? 

I don't think there's a mod bios for that board and I can't install any of the drivers pinned in the startpost because of too old windows version (they're all Win7+). I'm not even sure I can reinstall XP on that board without a modded BIOS.
