[REQUEST] Asus H87-PRO bios unlock
#1
Hi I'm doing some overclock on my asus h87 pro but some settings are locked and i can't go further than 4.2 Ghz with my 4670k at 1.22v vcore, some h87 were updated with a bios that allowed to unlock a ton of options for overclock but this only has only the ratio unlocked.

Can someone unlock all the options in the bios of this motherboard please?
Here's the link for the latest official bios: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/H87...Desk_BIOS/

Thanks Smile

Some Asus H87, were updated with a ton of options? If yes, please link some examples, thanks

Please zip up some BIOS screenshots showing me all settings visible to you in AI Tweaker, Digi VRM, and CPU power management pages too.

What is locked? Is there a limit at 42, and is there a vcore limit?

This mornirng I did some tweaking and raised to 4.3 Ghz at 1.25 Vcore but I can't get higher clocks stable even if I raise the Vcore like 1.3 probably because bad vrm, temperatures are not a problem because I use a TC14PE and the max temperatures are at 65ºC, I saw some H87 having XMP enabled and BLCK while my h87 pro version does not have those settings unlocked.

Thanks for the reply, here are the pics: https://imgur.com/a/1kfYhVz

It could be VRM cooling, or power delivery in general, since H87 was not designed for overclocking.

You should already be able to enable XMP, I thought, but based on our images looks like that's hidden from you too. Thanks for the images, I'll get you a unlocked BIOS tonight. Bclk might not be possible, and even if so it would only be 101-103 or so since your board was not deigned to overclock it does not have an external bclk controller IC.

Please familiarize yourself with this process, steps #6 onward, you will be using this method to unlock your BIOS to allow flashing modified BIOS.

From steps 1-5, the following are the variables you will use with this process, you can go ahead and make these changes now while you wait.
SMI Lock >> 0x7D
BIOS Lock >> 0x7E

Change both of those to 0x0, so following commands at grub prompt will be used one at a time
Setup_Var 0x7D 0x0
Setup_Var 0x7E 0x0

I have a high airflow case with positive pressure fans giving the vrms some decent cooling but I got no idea what temps I'm getting, as you said my motherboard was not designed for overclock so probably that's why I can't push higher than 4.3, psu is not a problem it's a EVGA G2 750W Gold.

I highly appreciate the reply, thanks Big Grin

Might be worth it to get some of those cheap alu or fake copper tiny square heatsinks to put on the VRM's, then that airflow would really help a lot more.

Here is modified BIOS and FPT, you must unlock the variables I mentioned in post #4 first, then you can flash via FPT. However, you can try flashing the H87PRO.CAP BIOS via EZ Flash, but I suspect it will give you security error. Please be sure to only use the .bin BIOS region with FPT, do not use .CAP with FPT, both are included hence this warning
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...5619029496

To flash with FPT, first you must have already unlocked the above variables via grub. Then select the FPT folder, hold shift and then right click, choose open command window here and run the following command
FPTw.exe -bios -f H87PRO_BIOSregion.bin

If you have flash programmer, we can try swap in Z87 setup module, or maybe other Asus H87 if you link me to any of the ones you say are already unlocked (This would be best move first)

I forgot to have you include DRAM timing images, do you have all the memory timings visible that you needed to play with? if not, send me images of all that section too so I can see what is hidden. Also, show me all visible sections (not inside, just the sections themselves) in advanced, and I can unlock any you have missing. For CPU config section in advanced, show me all you have visible inside, and inside CPU Power configuration too.

Thank you so much for the help, I'll update the bios today if I have time.

There's a few further things I can enable for you if you want, in the advanced section? Thermal configuration page, where you can set thermal trip points with it's related temp and fan settings, and a PCH-FW section with setting to enable ME updating. If you want those, let me know and I'll make you another BIOS later tonight

The more things unlocked the better, and thanks again Big Grin

Here it is, all changes in addition to above, so you can just use this package and toss the other one
