ASUS STRIKER II EXTREME
#1
Hi everyone, I'm new here and new to bios moding

It could take me ages to get up to speed with all of this and I was wondering if someone could help me out.

My gaming rig is getting a little old, and I also use it for work (video editing and the like) I cant afford a brand new system just yet (and apart from the problem below is still a [censored] fine gaming machine!) and thus looking to upgrade the ram but having a slight issue.

After researching the mobo (nForce 790i ultra) there was some reports that they was able to get 16GB of ram working on it.

I have gone out and got some compatible ram, it all works fine apart from the ASUS bios seems to have a soft limit of 8GB of ram.

the new 4GB sticks (2 sets of 2x4) all work fine up to the 8 GB limit

the reports are coming from the evga bios for this board saying V09 allowed them to run 16GB ram - all leading me to the conclusion that it is software limited. (4GB sticks were not around when the mobo came out, to that point it uses the older 1.8-2V DDR3 not the newer 1.5V stuff)

I am in the process of making a boot-able dos environment and will be looking to force flash the evga bios but would prefer to stick with the bios I know, thus the striker II extreme bios.

So if anyone could be willing to modify the current bios I would be most grateful (chances are if the force flash to the evga bios doesn't work I would have to spend weeks learning exactly how to edit bios's properly to change it and never need to look at it again, not that I am not willing but it may be a simple fix for someone here)

Here is the link to the asus striker II extreme 1402 bios http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock...e/1402.zip


if it helps here is the supposed evga bios that supports 16GB of ram, I say supposed as at this point I can not confirm or deny it works - further more it may not be of any use
http://www.evga.com/download/bios/NF79P09.bin

Thanks for any assistance you can provide!

So I can now confirm the evga NF79P09.bin allows 16GB of ram, I have read somewhere else though, and the bios somewhat seems to also confirm that the ASUS version, because its not a reference board has a more unique bios - so the hardware is capable, the asus bios is limiting it.

Hi SJones... i have your problem with my motherboard...have you found a modified bios for the Asus striker II extreme that mounts at least 16gb of ram?
