First time BIOS flash

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all.

 

I've recently had some issues with my ASUS Strix RX 580. Just little things: screen randomly turns off and on, weird glows on the edges of the monitor when dragging in RTS games, and worst of all, the RGB isn't detected in Aura Sync (a moment of silence for my un-coordinated RGB). Anyway, I think that a new BIOS flash might fix the problem. I've downloaded ATIflash, and I've read tutorials. But the one thing I can't seem to validate is which file I should be using to flash onto this sucker. I did find this site:

 

https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/191456/asus-rx580-8192-170301

 

and downloaded that ROM file, but is that the right one?

 

My other question is this: I did read one forum that said to NEVER flash from Windows, and to use a USB stick instead. It was a rather old post, and I feel like I've seen tech YouTubers flash from Windows. Am I high on that? Is Windows safe to flash from? I also saved my current BIOS just in case.

 

I'd really like to avoid bricking. (duh)

 

Thanks LTT community!

For a GPU you have no choice obviously.

Is this card still under warranty? If so, just do an RMA with ASUS. Why risk the warranty or completely bricking the card if you don't have to?
