Just use the AUTO TUNE then in the AI suite programs ... Chapter 4 - Page 9 in your Asus Users Guide. And let it do it for you ... you'll hit the 4.5 - 4.6 GHz easy.


I'm still green as can be about OC'ing and did it ... I didn't keep this setting as I had to relaod WIN 7 on a different SSD, and haven't tried again ... but really it's as easy as start the AI suite icon that would be on your desktop after you loaded it from the CD, then click the AUTO TUNING tab, then CLICK either FAST or EXTREME ... I think I clicked FAST and got 4.6 GHz ? after a minute or two of the program running, IT saves all adjustments to Bios & reboots your system ... and BAM! you're DONE and you're now at 4.6 or whatever your chip CAN run stable.

ASUS website should be the most reliable source and I haven't read about a beta BIOS.

If you plan to use Intel RST, I would upgrade to 0403 like stated here. Otherwise I would wait for the next BIOS.

In fact to tell you the truth, I changed 4 settings, the one above and the memory profile to XMP to get my memory runs at it's optimum settings. And I also disabled the iGPU (but that's not related to overclocking).

Then a few days later I found out my system would hang when trying to resume from sleep and I remembered that it was related to the PLL parameter (I always forget the exact name) so I switched it to disable.

So my advice, change the CPU Auto Level to 4.6 and see if you are satisfied with that. Going from 3.3 to 4.6 with only this setting is pretty awesome if you ask me. Then if you feel you really need to get another 200-400MHz (really?) then have fun messing with all other options and testing many hours for stability.
Sorry. I missed your last post directed at me.

I don't need to mess with voltage at all?

What part you don't understand in 'the only setting'? ;-) Seriously, it is all taken care of, hence the word Auto.

Hey guys, I own a Maximus IV Extreme-Z (I know this is the Gene-Z but I guess it's all the same? lol) and I was wondering if there was a way to manipulate the debug LED to display the CPU temperature.

Any ideas?

Only two options are 4.2 and 4.6. You should ask this to ASUS!
