New Firmware Update for Maximus VII Hero 🙄
To bad they didn’t fix the previous problems that exist with Z97 Motherboards
Stay away from ASUS and Corsair products by all means, if your one of those people that love ASUS and Corsair products then you may wanna read the following information on what motherboards are supported. The mount of problems I had with the Maximus VII Hero motherboard just wasn’t worth it. ACPI reporting event errors and USB 3.0 fighting with AsMedia SATA Ports enough said and I’ll never purchase another product again from ASUS.
Intel Corp.’s code-named Broadwell processors are still two or three months away, but mainboard makers are already preparing for their arrival. Asustek Computer, the world’s largest producer of motherboards, this week released new BIOS versions for its contemporary mainboards that add support for the new central processing units.
As expected, all of Asustek’s platforms based on the Intel Z97 and H97 chipsets will support Intel Core i-series 5000-family processors made using 14nm process technology and known as Broadwell. The only thing needed to add support of the upcoming chips to existing mainboards is an up-to-date BIOS that can be obtained from Asus. Update requires simple one-touch operation with either USB flash drive or Windows-based app. The easy-to-use ASUS USB BIOS Flashback or BIOS Updater tools enable users to update the UEFI BIOS quickly, unleashing the great performance of the latest high-performance CPUs.

ASUS BIOS updates are available immediately worldwide.
Intel 5th Gen Broadwell CPU support is here (even if the LGA chips aren’t quite yet), but it’s good to be ready for your upgrade! You can use EZ Flash 2 in the BIOS, USB BIOS Flashback or the Windows BIOS update tool within AISuite III to do it. The forthcoming “Broadwell” microprocessors will feature reduced power consumption compared to existing “Haswell” CPUs. It is expected that unlocked “Broadwell” chips for enthusiasts will feature higher overclocking potential than current microprocessors.
