[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 253

post #2521 of 7112
I am having a little bit of a strange problem now , probably just a dumb mistake I made somewhere in UEFI, I am trying to O/C to 4.5 GHz but when I set the multiplier to anything over 41, once I save the settings the board just hangs and won't POST forcing me to do a CMOS reset (I love the easily accessible button for this, thanks ASUS!) I am stable @ 4.1 GHz right now and just scored 26K 3dM06.

Also, I am trying to O/C using offset but I cannot get the CPU power management option to allow me to select Offset.

I am a n00b when it comes to advanced overclocking like this so any help would be appreciated, also if someone could share their config that would be great.

Look at the Internal PLL Overvoltage option. When you OC, there comes a time when it need to be set to Disable for proper resume from sleep and in some case from start. On the other side, some say it need to be enabled for high OC. So all I can say is look what is the current setting and change it and test.

Did you know you could probably run 4.6 by changing only 3 settings? Look at my signature. In my case the PLL option was set to Auto and had to Disable it.

This is a thread populated by owners of the ASUS MIVGZ, so you shouldn't be surprised - I hope! Personally, I have had nothing but success with ASUS boards over many years, so for me this wasn't even a difficult decision.

I was considering GA-Z68XP-UD5 as well. I might return the MIGZ and get Gigabyte

if money were not an issue, which one would you choose? MIGZ or GA-Z68XP-UD5 ?

... I love the water cooled systems!

I just haven't been willing to take on the expense and hassle - yet! I would want to water cool the graphics card(s) as well as the CPU and board components, if I ever did it, and so it just seems like too much. Love the H60 for the CPU though.

I agree with utnorris. Excellent advise, I think. You can justify a great single card slot answer for today's use, while also preparing for a future upgrade when your needs and budget are better defined.

I am still not sure what to buy... the EVGA 2GB is way too overpriced. But even the PoV 2GB costs almost like a 6950 with TwinFrozrIII, wich is simply a better card..

That being said, on the GTX460, all the reviews on the 1Gb versus 2Gb cards stated there was no difference, but IIRC that was not in multi-monitor setups. This is why I would personally opt for a single HD6970 now and then later on add a second one if you needed it and once the prices came down. Either way, for now on a single 1080p display, any of the cards you mentioned will be fine. You could do a single GTX560 1Gb card for now and then just upgrade to the latest generation when you decide to do multi-monitor if you do not plan on doing it for a year or so. Save the money that you spend on the second card ($200) and use that in two years and you will be able to get a much better setup, while in the meantime you will be fine on your single monitor setup.

Maybe a build log, too. That way I can copy what you do!
Just make sure it is a "kick-butt" system when you do it!

Seriously, I love the H60 (and therefore, the H80)... just too simply and they work great too. The H80 has a better radiator and factory push/pull set-up (which makes me envious), but adding a fan to the H60 isn't a bad solution for me, since I already owned it.

Sadly though, I decided to go back to the H80 for now. I thought about going the custom water cooling set up route for about the last 2 weeks but to do it the way I would want would require a lot more effort and (more importantly) money than I feel comfortable spending at the moment.

My new H80 will be arriving today so I'll be back at somewhere between 4.8GHz-5GHz. I'll save the loop for when I can comfortably spend a bunch of money on quality parts.

Four fans? All 120mm? Looks great in black! Did you add a fan to the door panel?

Try opening the "Advanced" tab, scroll to the bottom and set "CPU C3 Report" and "CPU C6 Report" to "Disable".

Go into "Digi+ VRM/POWER Control" and change "VCore Phase Control" to either "Regular" or "Optimized".

Guys, I have a cherry-picked 2600k that can do 5ghz on 1.467v and 5.1 on 1.5v.
My current gigabyte p67 ud4 has given me lots of trouble with its quirks and I am considering getting an Asus board (with which I have had lots of success in the past).

The thing is, I am between the P8Z68-V and the Gene....
Price difference is only ~10 euros so its unimportant.
The only thing I care about is the best overclocking chances to be able to utilise this great piece of cpu to its full potential. So the Gene seems like the better choice initially....but then I read the Gene has 8phase for cpu, and the simpler P8 has 12? What's the deal with that? Will the P8Z68 be even slightly better at OCing my cpu?

1 more thing, I really need that x4 pci-e slot for a raid card, but my card has 8x connection. I know it will function in 4x, but I need to make sure the Gene is open ended and I can plug it in and that no capacitors of any kind will be in the way of the pci extra pins....can you verify this?

But am mostly interested in the OCing capability of the Gene vs the vanilla P8Z68-V...
