[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 440

post #4391 of 7108
Hi! This is my first post here. I discovered this thread as I was sizing up parts for my new rig a few weeks ago, figured I'd jump in here too!

Here's a pic of my new baby:
480480

My question is this - overall this system is running very well, is perfectly stable running prime95 all day but for one thing - it sometimes likes to bluescreen when I boot with a STOP: 0x00000F4 error. At first it was only when resuming from sleep, but lately it can happen from a fresh boot as well. I've been fishing around for answers and saw a few people here talking about similar problems, but haven't come up with the right fix so far. I suspect it may have something to do with the OCZ Vertex 3 SSD, but haven't had a spare drive easily accessible to test that theory for the moment. At any rate, is there someone here who has this same problem, or maybe someone who has the same or similar hardware who doesn't have this problem?

What I've done so far is swap the SATA cables, cleared CMOS, removed the overclock from cpu and memory, booted with individual ram sticks instead of all 4 (this seemed to make it worse... I tried 2 of the 4 sticks solo in various dimm slot positions before I got tired of rebooting to bluescreens), ran memtest86 for 45 mins or so with all 4 sticks in (no problems there). This evening I'm going to dig out an old WD Raptor 74GB HDD and install Windows on that to see if it's any different. Any pointers would be very helpful!

Edit: Just finished installing windows on the WD Raptor 74GB and after sending it to sleep or full reboot about 12x not a single crash, so that's got me looking really hard at this Vertex 3 120GB and the SATA III ports...

Also I just now noticed something after switching back to the Vertex 3 SSD and rebooting a few times... sometimes it crashes while sending it TO sleep rather than booting or resuming FROM sleep.

Wondering if it fits..

You'll see I trimmed [with good pair of tin snips] my full sized Vengeance's .

Works just fine and temps are way below anything to be concerned with

You can see the shiny cut marks along the cut part of mem sticks

You got good eyes. That shot was taken immediatly after assembly and after test firing my CPU fan "setup"
The 6950 got its butt kicked right back to newegg [noise foul]
The galaxy's in place, doing its job ,and NOT makin' any noise.

Thinking about getting this board just bought a MSi Z68A-GD65 (G3) this board is so picky I'm getting sick of it fast. Anyone know if the Asus Maximus Gene-Z works great with a Razer BlackWidow ultimate, like can it boot into BIOS with it. Also will a R.A.T 7 work with the UEFI BIOS? Any info about that would be great. Right now I'm having to plug in my old Razer Lycosa just to get into BIOS, and had to go out and buy a new mouse because my Steelseries XAI was making my Z68-GD65 (G3) take 6 mins to boot up.mad.gif

Atheus, nice rig! Excellent cable management. Are you using the lattest BIOS? I was having resume from sleep issues with my Vertex 2 but the latest BIOS fixed it.

Thanks! I'm definitely loving the way this thing looks inside and out haha!

I haven't changed the BIOS since I got it and did see it's not the most recent one but just one step before. I didn't update because the only change they documented in the newer one was support for the new Ivy Bridge CPUs which aren't publicly available yet, though maybe there were some undocumented steps I'm missing out on too. I just tried switching to the Intel RST 10.8 drivers based on some info in the OCZ forums and wound up rebooting twice in the process of installing them without any crashes, so we'll see if that makes a difference after a series of reboots hunting for a crash, but if I do hit one I'll definitely go ahead and grab the new BIOS too. Thanks for your response!

Guys,

Just collected some stuff today biggrin.gif

700

In Picture:

Asus Maximus IV Gene-z / GEN3 (For those who are wondering, the X-FI sticker is present. Should get a boost in sound quality with the addition of the sticker )
Noctua NH-D14
TP-LINK Wireless Lite N USB adapter
Corsair Force GT 3 120GB SSD
Leadtek Winfast GTX 580 3GB
SilverStone TJ08-E

Not Pictured (Already waiting for me at my parent's place):

Core i5 2500K
2 X 4GB Kingston DDR3 Value Ram
2 X 4GB Kingston DDR3 ECC Server Ram (Salvaged from my previous server, but worked in my P8Z68V mobo)
Samsung F3 1TB HDD
4 X Artic F12 PWM fans (Salvaged from my previous build)

To Arrive Soon:

Dell U2412M
Dell U2312HM

I'll be going home this Wednesday and will start building then. I shall post pictures if you guys want. I ordered the monitors today, and since i'm using a different bank to transfer the funds, they'll take 1 - 2 days to process. Then the delivery would take up to 5 days. Just keeping my fingers crossed to get it by the end of this week.

My last day of work (Resigned) is on the 6th of December. I'll be going off to college to continue my Degree studies early next year. I am 22 in case anyone is wondering smile.gif

*Add me to the list/club please.

I have received a new Beta Bios Version 1001 for the Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z (non Gen3)

Since it may probably fix problems with postscreen display and USB connectivity after restarting Windows 7 i want so share this with you.
