He just hasn't enabled Speedstep and C1E, that's all.

No because by default they are on so that's why I asked if he changed any settings prior to applying my 3 steps OC.

For me, the default setting for both was "auto". My CPU didn't downclock until I manually changed the settings to "enabled". Maybe that's the problem?

I've never done anything else in Bios, 3 steps was the only thing I ever did. What exactly is 0902? I just bought this motherboard 3 days ago, and updated it from the provided disk. Is there something else I should update?

Check in your BIOS to make sure Speedstep and C1E are actually enabled. Do that before you flash or update anything.

Well it's not mandatory but BIOS 0902 have just been released (http://www.facebook.com/ASUS.Maximus.IV.GENE.Z) and it support Ivy Bridge (I know nobody needs it now) and also fix the S3 resume problem related with Internal PLL overvoltage.

Well, my processor goes idle @ 1.6GHz and the only 3 settings I changed were the one in my signature. Try to enable what 996gt2 is telling you if it makes a difference.

I know that when I enter Windows, it needs about 20 seconds before I see it goes idle (like if it's performing other tasks in the background or something). I guess you waited long enough?

Hmmmm, how come when it WORKS , it's Rhialto's 3 step guide to OC'ing but when it fails and people can't do it, it's LA_Kings_Fan's guide even when I always give Rhialto the original credit for coming up with and posting it.

EDIT: 996GT's suggestion worked! Idling now. Thank you everyone who assisted me, I love this motherboard, such an easy overclocking experience!


And sorry LA_King_Fan, in my heart I know its Rhialto's guide

Tried the idle vcore steps you updated and two things:

1. Vcore loadline at 50% makes my screen go bezerk, corrupts my video card feed someone, I had to go to 75% to even past POST

2. Still not getting lower vcore according to CPU-Z
