    Well it's not up on their website yet. I have the Z170-DELUXE board and the latest bios is from 10/30 (they've actually removed more recent bio versions and I'm using 1502 on my board).

    Description Z170-DELUXE BIOS 1203
    Improve system stability.

    well THAT's weird. Put in "windows 10" and it doesn't offer anything newer than Bios 1203. Enter "windows 8.1" and it offers 1602.

    When I Tried to update with 1602 my board said it wasn't a valid bios file. Not sure if they've updated/fixed that or not. 1502 works fine though, I still have a great overclock.

    Often happens when trying to flash with BIOS file on local drive (works sometimes but unsupported by Asus). Use USB flash drive (FAT formatted) instead if that's the case.

    Try "other" for your OS type...seemed to still have all the various bios versions for me. Only a couple of old bios were listed otherwise.
