ASRock z170 MOCF lives on Coffee Lake Mods

Recommended Posts

Benefits of ASRock motherboards is continued support and with coffee this is no different. 

This mod and bios will actually will help them lose money. So make sure to thank Nick :P

 

Mod point is below, connect both pads with tin/silver ink etc.

Flash bios http://picx.xfastest.com/nickshih/asrock/Z17MOCF751A.rar with kabylake CPU, shut down insert coffee and go.

XP working fine 

ASRock nor I take any liability for HW damage, perform at your own risk.

Enjoy!

This is due to lack of support of Coffee Lake in AFD, same happened with kaby at launch... If you set it on bios, it works fine?

IF you have trouble booting you can do this mod also but most mobos will not need it. Resistance tolerances are to blame :P

Make sure you use a high quality silver conductive pen on cpu backside, less quality nickel or copper maybe not good enough.

 

For multiplier change in OS use XTU for now, there will be fix coming soon.
