Nah... I still believe it's best to use X.M.P. for the memory as every parameters is defined just the way the manufacturer wants it for optimal performace. If you want to OC the memory then you switch to manual but many review shows it's pretty useless to do so. Speed makes more difference than timings and mine is clocked at 1866MHz so really I don't know why I would play with it.

If it works then I really wish ASUS would reply what's going on...

Thanks

If you like to keep your builds for 2+ years, maybe wait for the GEN3?

Rhialto, are you using the 0902 BIOS?

I am wondering if I should move to the newer, non-beta 0706 BIOS that has recently been posted for the M4GZ, since the log file indicates that it "improves system stability", presumably, beyond the 0902 BIOS. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

Maximus IV GENE-Z 0706 BIOS
1. Improve memory compatibility
2. Improve system stability
3. Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/c...Language=en-us

I'll have to install it and would prefer not to, but I dont think it would read the speed since they are 3 pins and not PWM, I'im using the stock fans from my D14

Technically, the 0902 BIOS is newer so it should have all of the same fixes/improvements.

0706: built on 8/16/2011, released 10/12/2011
0902: built on 9/19/2011, released 10/06/2011
