      Hello,

       

      I've made a complete troubleshooting thread at the ASUS forums:

      https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?88013-ASUS-Maximus-VIII-Ranger-all-sorts-of-Q-codes&p=610739&posted=1#post610739

       

      I managed to get back into my BIOS and noticed my CPU Core Voltage was running with 1.5V. All my settings are at default because i have never OCed a system before.

       

      I've now went to Ai Overclock Tuner and am using XMP

      XMP DDR4-2667 16-18-35 1.2V as it says on my DDR

       

       

      Lower down im at CPU Core/Cache Voltage which i put in Manual Mode to lower the 1.5 Volts to 1.250V (is that enough?)

      Changed the DRAM Voltage to 1.2474V

       

      Advanced Tab:

      Hyper Threading Disabled

      Active Processor Cores: 1

       

      That only got me getting into Windows.. should i enable Hyper Threading again and put Active Processor Cores to All?

       

      Update: Tried Hyper Threading Disabled with Active Processor Cores All. That froze after a few seconds in BIOS and it wouldnt not load Windows.

      Error code i got was b2,

       

      Update:

      1902 drivers didnt change the 1.5v on my cpu cores. I changed it again to manual and 1.2V.

      Upped the RAM to 1.28V

       

      Hyper Threading enabled with Cores at 1 works.

      Hyper Threading enabled with Cores at 2 works.

      Hyper Threading enabled with Cores at 3 freezes my pc. Q-code A0

       

      If i enable more then 2 cores my PC just freezes. I think i have a bad CPU?
