From what I gathered so far AA is normal when in windows but you end up with a different code when resuming from sleep..........

There's nuttin wrong with the STX.......it does indeed kick azz [thinks I ran mine 3-4 years]

Had another box needing a the STX, so was perfect timing trying out the Claro's.
For my blu-ray, with all those new whacky sound requirements......the Claro's
handling formats...... the STX just couldn't.

Hey guys, one question:

Is the Gen-Z/Gen3 compatible with 0902 BIOS version? Because if i look on the product page i only find the old 0402, and if i download the 0902 from the Gen-Z (non Gen3), it won't let me flash it due to image verification error.

What should i do?

I talked with ASUS tech support and they told me that the BIOS was corrupt and the board was RMA'd. Got the next board back and same issue. Have tried everything I can think of and the only way to do get it to work is on my main computer monitor, I can get a real small screen of the BIOS via HDMI that is not corrupt. I am running the latest BIOS on the board and I was able to boot with a Live CD through the HDMI, just can not get into the BIOS. Level 2 tech support at ASUS has not been able to help me and does not know the problem. They are also very slow to respond with a solution, probably because there is none... I love my other ASUS boards but this experience has left a bad taste in my mouth and will probably consider a different board in the future...
Has anyone been able to find a fix?

turns out my issue was the HDMI also, but i wasn't even getting the corrupt looking bios, just multicolored static galore.

I hope Asus fix this in the first bios update, dragging a monitor from my grandma's just to setup my overclock blows... might see if work are selling any more 19inch Samsungs for a third (first non hdmi) monitor.

Hi all,
I figured i would post in here as I am looking for advice from fellow Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 owners. Below is my new build and components are starting to show up at my door (excited as its been awhile). I was originally going to go with a Corsair CAFA70 cpu cooler for air cooling but saved a little on the case and WD drive so decided to opt for the Noctua NH-D14 which will be showing at my door tomorrow. My question is DID I MAKE A POOR CHOICE, lol? Some users are saying it's not needed for a Sandy Bridge that an EVO or Corsair CAFA70 will do and is smaller, which leads me to my next question. Some users sort of dislike it because of it's size so my question is - being though it will be here at my door tomorrow is it worth the hassle because of it's size instead of returning it ( should of researched a bit more but to excited ) and will the temps be that much better that say an Evo or Corsair CAFA70? I will be overclocking!

I didn't want to go with water but if I did it would of been something like the Corsair H100 as I really do not want to get into a custom loop again. Would have the Corsair H100 been a better choice as well? I am looking for good cooling and reliability. And also for some of you who will be wondering, hmm. Why did you opt for an HD 6770. The answer is I decided to go cheap on the GPU at the moment to wait and see if prices come down a bit on some of the better cards then I will be sticking this in my sons rig smile.gif.

The rig will be used for gaming, dvd ripping, blue ray ripping maybe, a little video encoding ( nothing major ) and everyday use.

Hey guys my board gave out getting error code 06 (micro code loading) and stuck on VGA bios led indicator. Tried everything except rogue connect. unplugged everything removed video card tried taking out the battery, flipping the power switch , using the reset bios switch on back of board and the pin one. Nothing works same error no display at all. On my backup setup using video card its fine so is PSU(tried backup on board). Using my C2D and Formula rampage till I get this board off and get a new one back. I don't think rog connect will work for me because the USB ports are not working. Using my wired eclipse 2 keyboard it lights up for a second on boot then goes right back off. Any ideas before I apply for a RMA?
