[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 412

Did Asus remove BIOS 0706? All I see now is 0403 and 0902.
post #4112 of 7108
Yes, 706 has been removed, although if you go through AISuite to update the bios it was showing up the last time I checked. 902 is now the official latest bios, so you can just update to it.

@Modus - So a couple things you can try:
1 - Use a sewing pin to try and straighten them out along with a magnifying glass so you can see them, be careful cause bending them too much may cause them to break.

2 - Take the board to a jeweler and see if they can straighten them, they have the tools to do it.

3 - And finally, RMA it with Asus, usually they will only charge you $50 to replace the socket, so you get a board for $50ish plus shipping.

I would recommend number two and then number three if that does not work if you do not have the proper tools for bending them back, i.e. a magnifying glass that you can set up hands free or if you are like me and have shaky hands.

Is that just the CPU header? Interesting it works on the P67 Maximus and not the Z68. Oh well, I gave up and used a Y splitter off of the system fan header and now its fine.

Thread Starter 
The POST/BOOT TIME Issue has been talked about SEVERAL times before ...

- a search back in the thread and some reading might find some answers.
- you can also try some of these SUGGESTIONS from GaryKeys@Asus, thou for P67 boards, they still apply on our Z68 as well
- If during boot up of system, ASUS logo screen pops up twice ... go to the Boot menu under BIOS, manually set Option ROM Messages to "Keep Current".
- If you're experiencing a double POST on your Gene-Z68 motherboard whereupon after powering on the system from a cold boot, the board will power on and then immediately reset itself before it actually POSTs and shows any display on the screen, then To fix the most common additional reset (double POST when powering on from off state), enter UEFI BIOS -> go to ‘Advanced’ tab -> go down to ‘APM’, press Enter -> enable the “Power on by PCIe.” function. Then press F10 to save & exit. After save & exit, let the system boot into Windows or other OS, then perform a proper shutdown: Start button -> Shut down. You will no longer have the double POST.
- Disable any controllers {Jmicron, JMB, Marvell} you're not using, for unused USB ports (example the JMB Storage controller {for the e-Sata} will cause system to double Post)
- check that your SSD firmware is current
- check that your Gene-Z MoBo BIOS is current, version #0902 as of this date
- Make sure BCLK is set to 100


In general most of us seem to be getting between 20-30 seconds give or take, before you reach windows.


I'll go back and find some stuff and post more later ... as it seems like this site is having issues w/ the search feature at the moment ? frown.gif
