I have no idea. I was tempted to buy one but too much of a hassle for me for old tech.

How reliable are Asus rebates?
I've always received mine. Make sure you make a copy of the form with the upc attached and you shouldn't have any issues as that is your backup should they "claim" to have never received it.

Its a good deal if your into water cooling and you got spare parts like a compatible cpu lying around.

Where are the sales on the mini itx? This has bad reviews though, not even worth it for the $60.

Say what you want, but those are the people who know what to look for in a car
Not necessarily. They're the ones who know how to make a buck off a car no matter what ethical lines are crossed.

Bad reviews in that it's not for everyone may mean there's still a good target market for it that is willing to pay or it, and that's fair game imo. Bad reviews in that it has a 50% doa rate would not be cool not to disclose (like the radiator that leaks itself empty every 24hrs in the car analogy).

Heads up. Neweggs got the Asus Apex IX for $89 after rebate. Got one with hopes of doing a coffeelake mod on it.

$68.20 after tax and the new promo code (EMCTATE35)

I guess I'll join in on the coffeelake mod.

Wish I had a proper PSU with 2x 8pin EPS.

I'm trying to track down the dsanke 1704 or 1801 modded bios since it fixes a lot of issues and has hyper-threading but damn... I'm having a hard time finding a valid link to download it.

The working links in the hwbot forum only pertains to non-hyperthreading bios and Windows XP focused (for the sake of overclocking?).

Shouldn’t it have hyper threading regardless? What issues? I just updated my microcodes to ver CC and updated the raid efi roms from 15.5 to 16.5. Didn’t know it had issues.

If you are modding the bios yourself, then you should be fine.

I was mainly referring to the pre-made modded bios thread from hwbot.org. I'm kinda wrapped up in three other forums about this mod and forgot that hwbot forum wasn't mention here.

Anyhow, if anyone needs dsanke modded bios. It can be found in their Russian discord under "intel-mod-bios".

PII Discord link

There is a new version (1901) that was released last month.

Here is my google drive link to it from my burner gmail account that has 1704, 1801, and 1901.

My mods are module by module type mods. Nothing low level. Didn’t see 1901 on their site. Will look for it. Thanks

A little confusion regarding the bios files. I went with the Apex IX not the Max Extreme your referring to in regards to the bios you posted. The apex bios goes as far as 1301.

I also went with the Apex board too.

Visit the discord link and the intel-mod-bios channel. You can find all the Maximus IX APEX bios there. April 20th is when dsanke released version 1901 for the IX HERO and IX APEX.

Just do a little background reading on them. They seem to be pretty well-known among the bios modding community.

If you still feel flaky, well that is up to you. I'm not really going to try to convince folks otherwise.
