Great Club you have here The Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z seems to be a very popular mobo. Even more then it's full ATX siblings. Probably because it's way cheaper, but still has all the important and great features.

Keep up the good work
Thanks!

xD Ok maybe not EVERYONE but the vast majority. I'll help out when I can, and we have some very knowledgeable members in the club.

If you don't feel like asking in the club then PM me or one of the others that have been helping you out.

Just remember:

No that was a joke, and you didn't get it....lol "help"

Hello all! Had mine for a while now.. you can add me to the list of owners if you like, I'll post pictures later, but first I have a question. I love this board and just got SRT caching working, still testing for real world performance gains, but my question is this:

My boot time into windows once it actually starts loading is awesome, but the board itself booting the bios to the point where it finally runs the boot device takes a VERY LONG TIME. Has anyone else seen this?!

This board has the longest BIOS / UEFI boot time I've ever seen in my life, and I've built a TON of computers. When I turn my PC on, it's literally on for 16 seconds before I get video, then another 14 seconds before it actually even looks at my HDD. The windows boot time from that point is under 30 seconds to desktop, which is great, but my god, the bios/uefi segment.. why so long?!

Is anyone else seeing this issue of extraordinarily long boot times inside the bios itself? Any way to reduce it by turning off ports or features?

Thanks in advance, and thanks for the great info in this thread - I've read most of it here and there. Thanks to this thread I got a great deal on the board at SuperBiiz, even though they botched my address and it took weeks to get here :/

I'd be interested to hear your guys boot times, in the 3 stages.
(1) How long between pressing power and seeing the screen turn on (i.e. get a signal, even if it's just black)?
(2) How long doing random crap in bios/uefi before Windows begins booting?
(3) How long until you're at your desktop?

Unrelated, as an aside to anyone buying, TRIPLE CHECK YOUR ADDRESS. SuperBiiz and most other online retailers do not verify your address exists, and if it's even one number off (in my case, a typo apparently), they will return the shipment to the shipper and you have no control over it. SuperBiiz even tried to charge me to send it back out again. Neither they nor UPS tried to verify the address before actually driving it down my street and not finding me somehow.. ludacris.

I always notice long boot time on new motherboards including my Gene. Have you enabled all the quick boot options in your BIOS? I forget which ones are there specifically but that usually helps a fair deal. I'll check mine out tonight when I get home from work.

Hey guys I only formatted C and not E which is also a part of my HDD, does that affect my mobo?
And also this is similar to my processor chip
http://www.phoronix.net/image.php?id..._2500k_cpu_med
Theres a thin surface (not too thin) on the chip and a bit that got on the sides, is that okay?

Formatting doesn't affect the motherboard, only the HDD.

Also a thin surface of what? Thermal compound? It's ok if it goes on the side. If you are cleaning off the thermal compound, you can use an ordinary kleenex to whipe off any excess compound or leftovers.

If you are adding compound, just a small rice sized amount in the middle is enough, do not flatten it or spead it out. The heatsink will do that for ya.

It's advisable that you get thermal compound remover like from Newegg, but from past experience, it's unnecessary.

And I still didn't get your joke
