    stasio,
    did gigabyte put in a new protection scheme for their motherboards bios. Because my z170 gaming k3 rev 1.0 I can update the UBU modules but when I go to update the bios via q-flash or @bios, it says invalid bios file. Although untouched without using UBU it works. First time I had this happen with gigabyte mb's.

    PS. I can update my brother's gigabyte h110 mb bios with UBU modules no problem and I used to own a z170 gamiing 7 that I could also update with ubu modules.

    Just tried F20b on G7. Enabling XMP=FAILURE, Enabling OC (w/o XMP)=FAILURE.
    I'm going back to F8

    Try to flash with modded Efiflash in DOS:
    Efiflash 062-mod

    It turns out Gigabyte is using a structure called BiosDataRecord to perform an integrity check. It seems Gigabyte specific and it was present in older platforms as well (checked and found at Z87 and X79), just that it isn't/wasn't always fully activated.
    When updating microcode,some motherboard manufacturers are fixed in the BIOS volume, which contains a file with the microcode. As a result, MMTool can not make changes to the data volume and displays an error.

    Btw,
    I have also KabyLake BIOS update F20b ,for your board:

    I can live with strange readings of temperature sensors. BUt when appears new FAN6 sensor, speaker starts continuously beeping.
    It happens in any situation and with different period. Including when in games, when system is hot, and when system is in idle.

    GA-Z170-D3H
    Have 6400 OCed to 4,4 right now.
    Using f5c bios.
    Going to change bios and see what happen.

    And my question:
    What bioses for D3H have non-k OC feature, in general?
    And what bios i should start first?
    Problem solved.
    It turned out that the motherboard is buggy because of one of the programs in Gigabyte App center.
    I removed it completely.
    Now the motherboard works well.

    What's the best way to contact gigabyte? For the z170x-gaming 5 motherboard, the F5 bios on their website gives a BAD7 checksum. The others are ok (F4 etc).

    What about the Intel ME firmware? Won't there be a separate flash upgrade/update, for better KabyLake compatibility?
