yes, i agree 124 usually indicates vcore is too low, however, the only time it occurs is after i come out of sleep for the 4th or 5th time without a reboot.

Never while its fully up and stressed.

im pretty sure at this point is related to the same reason why we cant sleep with pll enabled.

It messes with the vcore, and doesnt ramp up quickly enough when coming out of sleep making it appear the vcore is too low and coughing up a hairball.

im sure i could fix it by switching to offset mode, but its really too much effort, i prefer auto.

Okay, I'm sober now! laughingsmiley.gif

There is a well known issue with pll and sleep. I personally have sleep and hibernate disabled, but for those that want to have their cake and eat it too, you can always try changing your OS drive to the Intel SATA (not Marvell) port or downloading the win7 hotfix. I've seen mixed replies to both of these solutions, so YMMV. smile.gif

The hotfix is here for those that want to give it a shot.

Is the ASMedia USB 3.0 controller better than the NEC USB 3.0 controller? I have a P8P67 B3 3.0 so i was wondering why ASUS made the change.

I haven't seen any info clearly saying one is better than the other but I have seen a few people on [H] forum saying that they were glad that they got the NEC controller on the 3.0 instead of the other one on the rev 3.1, so apparently some people prefer the NEC.

Bump.

I changed the latest RST (10.5 WHQL) to 10.1 due to an issue with the OPROM not working well with 10.5.

As for the new M4E BIOS (1409):
Quote:
Changelog:
  • Improved OC performance using Multipliers or Auto Overclocking.
  • Improved BCLK and DRAM OC capabilities when enabling the “Internal PLL Overvoltage” option in BIOS. Note - Sleep/Hibernate will not operate properly due to Intel Specs.
  • Improved USB compatibility, performance and UEFI fixes.
  • Minor Bug Fixes.
  • Adds EFI ROM flash back -> from one ROM to another -> to fix BCLK unable to change after failed flash.

Thanks

I updated from 1305 a few days ago and didn't have any problems. Still using the same BIOS settings for 5 GHz 24/7.

Don't forget to write down your settings before flashing.
