[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 424

post #4231 of 7108
Well, it's a sad day, but I have to say goodbye too. I needed a little more flexibility with PCIe slots so I got a Maximus IV Extreme P67 and just sold my Gene to Smasherbasher for his folding farm. Loved the club and I think LA Kings did an awesome job. Good luck to everyone and for the record I still think this is the most awesome board for the money.

Thread Starter 

Very sorry to see great people like 1ceTron, p3gaz_001, and utnorris and others leave our group. sadsmiley.gif

 

You guys will be missed, but good luck with your future MoBo's, keep in touch with us here. wave2.gif

 

I can understand the frustration of the new changes here, OCN made a mess of the place for a few weeks, but with some tweaking I'm starting to gewt things back to normal.

I'll figure out a good way to show you guys no longer Gene-Z board owners, but I'd like to not remove your name and the past specs from the list if you don't mind as it may help others put together a solid build using your specs as a guideline for it. You guys had some nice builds. smilingsmiley.gif

 

Welcome to the New Guys that are joining us ... IF I've missed your post during the migration period, please send me a PM w/ your post showing proof and I'll get your name and specs added to the google list ASAP now that I've got it back to normal. Thanks All for hanging in there during the OCN upgrades. thumb.gif

I really dislike this motherboard. I have such a tough time overclocking with it. I am a veteran overclocker. I can deal with the BSOD's. What I cannot deal with is a motherboard that forgets your settings in the BIOS when a BSOD happens, only shows a blinking cursor if you don't have PLL enabled, or same thing but just freezes at the post and forgets my boot order and loses the SSD. I hate having to clear the CMOS every other time I BSOD. It remembers all of the voltage settings but cannot remember the CPU Configuration settings or any of the settings under that menu. The BIOS updates have been shotty at best. First there was one that was posted then immediately removed, then we had 902 beta, followed by 706 which just got removed, and now our beta firmware is now our live one. I need a real update with more stability and fixes. My old ROG board never had these issues and firmware updates were actual updates and not hindrances that made me second guess my OCs stability when I updated. This will be my last ROG board. People who bought the cheaper boards from ASROCK and BIOSTAR are not having nearly the troubles I am. I am not saying I will leave ASUS, but I won't ever buy one of their top boards again. Even the low end ASUS board, I forget which it was, overclocks the 2500k with ease compared to what I am dealing with.

I have no problem with you leaving me on the list. I really did love this board. As far as ease of overclocking, it really was easy. Granted, maxing it out was a little harder, but I used ROG connect and a laptop and had it dialed in within an hour. For those that are having a hard time overclocking try the presets, 4.6Ghz is easy as changing one setting in the bios, seriously that easy.

utnorris, you will be missed here. wave2.gif

What are you able to do with the Maximus IV Extreme P67 that you couldn't with the Maximus IV Gene-Z? What cards/capability do you use the extra slots for?

Have you tried the "GO" button in the upper left corner of the board, or the reset cmos button? Do this when the mobo is in a sleep/idle-state. Thats the only thing I could think of, roight of the bat, that could work tongue.gif
The wireless/wired kwyboard issues doesnt meen much i believe.

cympaulife, debug codes are in the User Guide. Debug code 34 fits in "32-36 CPU post-memory initialization". So I'd check the memory. Does your Dominator 1600 run at 1.5v? SandyBridge doesn't like more than that, so I would start checking there. thinking.gif
As to the wireless keyboard and mouse, I had an issue until I could install the drivers off of the included disc. I ended up using a wired keyboard and mouse to get past the driver install and then I was fine. Enjoy the build process! applaud.gif

Thanks for the help.
I did all your suggestions, clearing the cmos, placed the ram in the recommended position in the manual and also bought a wired keyboard.
After that I was finally able to boot the board. I am currently updating windows and the other utilities before performing a stress test.

When updating the bios, do I have to do I have to update first to 0403 before I update to 0902?

Again thanks for your help

No, you can update to the 0902 BIOS without updating to an earlier BIOS update first.

Just set it to 4.6 and forget it... 200mhz is not worth the extra .15v you're running
