Aargh, BSOD again, returned to stock settings for now so my wife can play alice: madness returns instead of killing me...

And how do you know it looks like a bong?

Anyone have an exact date the GEN3 versions of the ASUS mobos will be out?
post #3584 of 7108
Saw this very detailed post comparing the power circuitry in the Maximus IV Extreme-Z and GENE-Z. If you look on Asus's web site you might be led into thinking that the power circuitry on the two are very similar (8+4+3 phase for Extreme, 8+4+2 phase for GENE), but they are apparently very different!

First since ASUS has exclusivity with a 8-phase Chil VRM, you do get that, but since that PWm is only a 7+1 phase PWM, i fyou want to use that +1 phase you can't use 8 true phases just for CPU, you need another PWM. Anyways so 4 phases from that 8 phse PWm are used for the CPU cores, each phse goes to a power module, the power module has a phase doubler(w/frequency divider= maxPWM freq of 550khz compared to 1.X mhz on M4E) with two drivers in one tiny IC. So that allows them to double 4 phases into 8. Then the M4Gz uses the same MOSFETs, 3 actually per phases, just a copy of the P8P67-Deluxe which has 16 phases made of 3 MOSFETs per phase, TranchMOS to be exact, and the M4Gz uses the same amount and type per phase but only 8. Two lowside and one highside FET.

Next we move onto the inductors:
yes they are the same, max 28A per phase, but extreme low DCR and ripple current. They are very nice inductors.

The output capacitors on the M4E costs a lot, that NEC Proadlizer polymer capacitor is so nice, but the M4Gz doesn't have it.

For the amount you spend on the M4Gz you get what you pay for, the M4E has a totally different VRM, even if ASUS wants you to think they are the same because of the identical inductors.

Well, the only reason why I changed from Auto to Disable was because I wanted to properly resume from S3 sleep. I tested it with 0902 and when on Auto the resume works just fine now.

But like I wrote in another post, I decided to keep it Disable because if I can avoid any 'overvolt' then I prefer that. ;-)

So I am using LAking's 3 step guide to 4.6ghz overclock. The problem is that my computer never "idles", its always at 4.6ghz even when I'm afk or light web browsing. Is there a way to fix this? Please let me know thanks!

You need to enable Intel Speedstep and C1E in BIOS. Also, you should be using offset VCore mode so that your VCore will decrease when you're at idle.

Have you played with other settings before deciding to use the 3 steps (now 2 steps) OC guide? If so, there may be a setting that's causing this.

If you haven't flashed to 0902, I invite you to do so, that will reset all settings to defaults, then apply my 2 steps OC guide (read below).
