Changed to wired keyboard for Logitech 270 wireless, no help. Tried F1 and other keys, too. Noting but straight to Windows.

I'm going to reset CMOS and start over tonight. Already activated my OEM Windows so I have make it work or do some fast talking to Microsoft.

Setup: Asus Maximus IV Genie-Z
Corsair Vengence low profile 1600 DRAM
i5 2500K (no overclock)
HIS Radeon 6950
Cooler Master 212 Plus with push/pull fans
Asus optical drive
1 tetrabyte Seagate 7200 rpm HD
Corsair Nova SSD 32gb
Logitech wireless keyboard 270 and trackball 570
Corsair professional 750 watt PSU
Lian Li case with five fans

Never over heated or other problem. I switched to EZ in the bios after configuring to boot from optical drive and loaded Windows onto Seagate with intention to use Inrel Smart Response with SSD.

Any thoughts other than resetting CMOS? Asus utility program to update bios tells me I'm not on the internet and won't update. I am, however, able to use the internet for everything else. I get an "AA" reading on the debug LED. Also tried reset button.
EDIT: Never mind, you got in to bios!

I'm going to leave my post though, in case it might help someone else down the line.


kauaijim,

Here are a few things to try to get into bios. First off, DEL is the correct key to get into bios for our motherboard - per the manual.

1 - Turn off the computer and unplug from the wall for about 2 minutes. While unplugged, leave the switch (if you have one) on your PSU to the on position (1 not 0). Then press the power button on your case - this will discharge any remaining power left in the PSU (yes, PSU's retain residual power even after being unplugged). Turn the switch on the PSU off, plug the cable back into the wall (or PSU if that is where you unplugged the cable), turn the switch on the PSU on and turn the computer on. As soon as you turn it on, keep hitting the DEL key repeatedly, but don't hold it down. (you may get beeping sounds after a little bit - this is fine, keep hitting DEL)

If that doesn't work:

2 - You need to do a hard reset. Load Windows and let it finish loading completely, then hit the Reset button on your computer - do not go to start menu then reset - this will not work (I'll explain below). As soon as you hit the reset button on your computer, start hitting the DEL key, like above. This should get you into bios. This method is not the best because windows does not like to be hard reset. It's not bad for it per se, windows will just run some diagnostics on the next boot.

The reason this works, is because some bios will "remember" that the last time it booted, all the attached devices (including memory, which is the big one in this instance) passed testing last time, therefore it skips checking these devices to save on boot time. When you do a hard reset, the computer thinks it crashed and will run checks on the attached devices. This gives you the time you need to hit the DEL key.

ASUS EEE PCs use a fast boot method that reserves a little bit of the harddrive for remembering these bios checks. Because of this, they are notoriously fast booting and are a pain to get into their BIOS. The first method usually works for these though, but sometimes not.

Give these two methods a try and let me know if you still have problems.

OK just got done playing a bit. It's pretty amazing.

My sig rig handles it fairly well... could use a better GPU or even a CPU upgrade would probably be enough of a difference or improvement. But for the most part if you can play BC2, you'll have no issues with BF3.

Well just bought this board. Gonna play with it tonight.

My Asrock Board goes to RMA, hopefully it gets replaced immediately so I can sell it.

WHAT!? And so my shiny new computer system is for nuts!? In those former times it was a must to always upgrade your computer for a new gaming hit, e.g. i bought me a 486 DX4/100 especially for playing Doom because my 386 DX40 has problems with it! Blame those console games pinning down the technical advantages of modern pcs for years.

Nah, just kidding a bit, i'm the same freak like most of all others here...

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

@ OVLAZEK: I'm very glad to see, that your rig is running now, Ovlazek!
@ LAKF: No, dude, not enough beer! I've asked aunt google for the Debug Error Code which Ovlazek gets and someone has had this code and boot problem based on USB devices. btw: forget those crude websites analyzing and especially spying out your system. I've had bad experiences with this Intel website crawling for the latest intel driver. This is nothing for experienced self building pros like the two of us.

P.S.: "Alla doch Annafest (=Alle Tage Annafest = All days Annafest)" -> Near Forchheim about 30km away from me, a wooden hill is full with 23 historical beer cellars, 6 music platforms and 30.000 seats and once a year the Fest of the holy Anna is given there: It's kind of one very large Biergarten underneath beech trees. Here are some pics of it.


P.P.S.: This pic must've been in the morning, normally it's crowded there.

The next part of my new system has just arrived: Antec Kühler H2O 620
Still need a lot of things to complete it...

Trying to ask again...

I wonder if it's a bug in the original BIOS version? I see no reason why I'm not able to control the fan speed from this option. I even tried enabling the second control CPU_OPT in case they have inadvertently swapped names. Both at Turbo but no change at all. Turbo is supposed to run fans at max speed all the time, right?

When I power up the system, the fan goes max speed making too much noise then is goes very slow to an inaudible level. I would like to give it a few more RPM.

Well, I just realize it does not looks much better than some other when viewed in 2D. I'll take a 3D picture later so you better see cable management.

I think you can't change speeds in the CPU_OPT header.. I have read it somewhere but can't remember.

I think you're a bit mistaken about the Q-Fan profiles. The only difference between them is the temperature scale used to spin up the fans. Turbo just means that it reaches full fan speed at a lower temp, it doesn't mean they spin at 100% all the time (disabling Q-Fan does this).

All fans will spin at 100% briefly upon boot before the BIOS fan profiles kick in (this is normal). There also seems to be a built in setting that will disable all Q-Fan settings if the processor turbo multiplier is changed. You need to re-enable Q-Fan each time the multiplier is changed.

It sounds like you aren't properly measuring what temps / duty cycles need to be set for manual, and you just aren't hitting high enough temps for Turbo to change fan speeds.

Set Q-Fan to Turbo, then run p95. If that doesn't change the fan speeds then something might be wrong with the fans / header.

CPU_OPT follows the settings for CPU_FAN. They can't be set independently, but the OPT header will run at whatever FAN is set to.

The other thing that I noticed a few weeks ago when setting up my fan profiles, Q-Fan will only work with 4-pin PWM fans on the CPU headers while the Chassis headers will work with 3-pin.
