Is anyone having USB over-current issues without putting Vaseline on the board, specifically on the fuses? Seems we have a lead.

About to prep an apex for LN2 with vaseline, should i coat the fuses with nail polish first or is not using vaseline the suspect?

Coating with nail-polish should work. A fix seems to be removing vaseline + heat the fuses. Easiest is to use a hairdryer or heatgun to ~70*C PCB temp.

Am i doing something wrong???

I boot xp in maximus viii extreme all fine.

When i try to update the sata achi with the drivers in this thread it still says they are z170 drivers.I update them nonetheless but there is no way to boot in maximus ix...

Tried 2 different xp x86 and on x64.All blue screen when loading in z270.

Anyone has done it successfully?

I updated the sata controller from the specified folder z270 achi from this thread.It still says z170 when i do that but it installs new driver.After that it requests restart and i have tried both to switch platform before restart or restart in z170 and then shut down and boot z270...

My Apex often (50% of the time?) hangs on A2 when I have pressed the safe boot button after a crash.

Any idea what causes this?

 

It might be since I installed the a 6600K or 7700K, but definately didn't do this on same BIOS with 7350K and 6700K. I can't remember exactly when it started doing it, and it isn't a huge problem because a 2nd press of safe boot and it works fine...

 

More curious if it's a setting within BIOS I am using or a bug/CPU thing.

Which BIOS? Could it be one of the devices plugged into the board like storage or add-in cards?

BIOS is 0906. I have changed to a SATA SSD from M.2. Could that be it?

Try without it and see if you still get stuck at A2.

Hi Elmor,

 

I left you a message about modding the Maximus hero IX latest bios with the latest EFI and Option roms. I would compensate you.
