Off topic, so I'll be very brief. The radiator I have is a tight fit and secures itself without needing mounting screws. If you use a different radiator that doesn't hold itself in, you'd probably need custom brackets since the front fans don't line up with the mounting screw holes.

On topic. The 3103 bios is working fine for me. But really, why upgrade if you don't need to, other than because you can smile.gif I have noticed 2 bluescreens running my day-to-day 4600 OC @ 1.36, which I haven't quite worked out the cause yet. But I wouldn't jump to blame that on the bios; Post hoc fallacy and all.

the support page lists the correct bios, not the p8z68-v gen3 bios link you posted, yes. whats your point?
"a tool" YES. It's called ASUS Update V1.02.03 for Windows 32/64bit XP & 32/64bit Vista & 32/64bit 7 it's on the download site.


Force flash........???? What the heck is that ????
320
I gotta be more careful....... Don't want the "FORCE" to get me smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif
Common terminology buddy, a forced flash is flashing via dos or cmd using switches to override the checks done, for example mismatched ID's. rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif

Would you flash a bios for a p8z68 to you maximus gene-z Gen3 ??????

I dont think i can roll my eyes any harder here...rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif
But im going to say, stop posting incorrect info, or i will be reporting you to a moderator.
Some reasons for this including spam(post count increase), Trolling ( debating simple terminology such as forced flashing a bios), and not to mention the destructive outcome of flashing a WRONG BIOS!!!!

Tyreal, chill the fark out, most modern Mobo BIOS's won't allow you to flash the wrong BIOS in the first place.

post #5625 of 7108
Guys.

I'm still having problems for OC my CPU. i5-2500k, the max that I can hit is 4.9GHz or 5GHz, above that I get an error: "Machine check error", I had tried with different voltage, LLC at 75% and 100% but nothing works.

Any advice?

You're being allot more polite, than I could ever imagine doing myself !!!!

Clearly, his knowledge of current flshing process's could use a little brushing up on.

Considering some folks can't even follow a simple "click here" on a modern day GUI ,
Hard to imagine one accidently entering a DOS prompt, and beginning a flash process= dang near impossible ?
So this whole "force flash" thing's still an unexplained joke. Common term, huh ? *snickers*

Oh yeah......those two bios files, are 100% identical. Didn't take much to verify, but
you'd need those "tools" to of figured out that one.

Class is dismissed.



PS: I'll be sitting outside the Principles Office..... smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif" just in case I get reported" smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

I will let you guys know what the results are when i have it installed later today

Change log is awefully skimpy....

Keep an eye out for things not listed thumb.gif

First things first.... EZ Flash CANNOT downgrade a Bios. "so please don't attempt"


Do it "old school" way..........BUPDATER Flash BIOS tool under DOS

Since it's performed offline.....less things that can go wrong

Frankly, I think that quite a few people in this thread could make more of an effort to try and respond politely...or if they can't, just not respond instead. This is not directed at any one person. It's just a general observation after being here for a couple of months...and watching the banter in this thread.


When I post something, here or elsewhere (or when I send email), I ask myself, "Are the tone and content of what I am writing polite enough that the other person will be able to read it, absorb it, and then respond...or did I just spit in their face?"

If you just "spit in someone's face", do you really expect them to be able to appreciate the content of your message? Do you really expect them to respond with anything other than venom? Human nature would say no. If you were rude to someone, regardless of the content of your message (and whether or not you are "right" or "wrong"), they won't get much from your message other than the fact that they think you are a jerk. If your message had good content, it was just lost. They dismissed it...and you. If you don't care how they processed your message, then why did you even bother to send/post it?

Hello all, I've just installed an Maxi iv Gene-z/Gen3 a few hours ago with an i5 2500k with an Sapphire 6950 1gb with an Zx series 850w psu and i've seemed to have come across a little bit of a headache, Its to do with the Sapphire and the pcie slots, They just won't talk to each other the gfx is fans are spining so its getting power, And i've tried it in my old Asus Amd board and its fine, and to make matters worst my old X1900xtc(i think) works in both slots on the board.

Could it be that they just hate each other, Its that the case, i might dunk the sapphire, which is a shame becuase its not even a year old.

I just wondered if you chaps have come across this bug before and maybe there is a fix, which would be lovely.

I not out of ideas myself, there is a black DVi port on the gfx below a white one and i can't use it atm due to using an adaptor (DVI>VGA) I was using hdmi. which works fine in the Intel igfx, the x1900xtc doesn't have a hdmi or vga just a standard dvi. I have to wait until i get to work tomrrow and borrow a dvi lead.

anyone time to play with the i5 biggrin.gif Its bloody fast out of the box.

Ive updated to the latest bois just to add and have some 4gb skill ram too. i also checked the cables are really in, and the pci is seated correctly.

Also thank you for any help you can give.

Are you sure? On the amd rog CHV you could do it with the usb flash method all day long. Or are you talking about the software through windows? Perhaps I was mistaken
