I know now is the time to snag a 580. I've been missing mine ever since I got rid of it.

I can't either right now though.

Yes Steve...... I too said the same thing.

And.......NO........I certainly have nothing against a "proper" bios.

But this ain't my first Rodeo. I've seen many a device taken down
because of jumping too quick. I was simply warning because of the
exact kinda thing some are experiencing.

My first class (flashing 101) warned of such matters. There's absolutly
no reward for being first. Allow time for new updates to be confirmed
by many. If you want to become a pioneer, make certain you have a
valid path home. Just a real basic common sense approach to flashing.

Hey guys, just thought I'd post a little something for people struggling with the BIOS right now.

Unfortunately there is no way to revert backward from 3XXX, because MEI8 is far more advanced than the previous MEI7 which has been upgraded in the 3XXX batch, and MEI8 would never work with a 0402 BIOS.

If you plan on upgrading from the original release BIOS to 3XXX, you *must* follow a very intricate set of steps. There's a bug in the newest BIOS release that doesn't allow the flash to finish, and it botches your BIOS... but probably not permanently. Just until the new release comes out.

This is one of the only ways to upgrade without messing up your BIOS. Again...this probably doesn't work to fix your already screwed up BIOS. Those of us will likely need to wait. But if you *must* upgrade, try following the steps below very carefully:

1 - Format an old HDD to NTFS
2 - Create a partition that is 8GB or less and install Win7 x86 on it.
3 - Put the BIOS ROM on the same partition as Win7 x86 in the root of that partition.
4 - Rename the BIOS to 3203...or whichever the version is.
5 - Unplug other HDDs and ODDs and USB thumb drives and disable onboard devices.
6 - Set SATA mode in the BIOS to IDE...*not* AHCI or RAID.
7 - ***Make sure*** HDD is the first boot device Intel port #1
8 - Boot into BIOS and use EZ Flash 2 to browse to the Win7 partition and select the ROM in the root of C

I am having a problem where only after the PC has been on for about hours windows will "freeze" in a very bizarre manner. I have run windows memory diagnostic over night and it found no problem. I have not enabled any overclocking. I have also installed all of the latest drivers and updates. I believe the motherboard may be defective, a brand new gene z gen 3 that i just built up.

Let me describe the freeze: i have only observed this behavior after the computer has been on for 12-48 hours. Everything will be working fine and then suddenly links on a browser window wont work at all. Then i will try to open task manager, which will not open. I can try to open apps from the start menu, but they flash for a second, and then disappear without opening. After i have tried to open several apps, explorer will freeze.

What is strange is that i can still move the mouse. I can still hear sound in the background. The numbers and animations on my widgets continue to work fine. But everything is locked up. There is no hint of the problem in the logs and since i cannot open task manager, i cannot troubleshoot individual programs.

Pushing the reset button is my only option, and the computer reboots fine and then continues to work fine for 12-48 hours until the next freeze.

The bottom line is that my last system was stable 24/7 for months at a time, and this new asus based system can barely make it for a day or two without a restart! Not very encouraging!

I have 4x4gb 1600 ram g skill ripjaw. configured XMP in bios.

CPU is 2500k at stock clock.

I have an ATI 6950, intel video is disabled, latest 12.2 drivers.

Power is antec 750W high current gamer.

My storage is 2 x 160gb intel 320 series ssd in raid 0. 2TB external HDD.

DVD burner, card reader installed.

Silverstone tj-08 case.

Windows 7 pro x64 sp1 all updates w/ security essentials and malwarebytes.

I am no stranger to computers or overclocking. This problem is proving to be almost impossible to diagnose though.

My 5 year old qx6700 socket 775 was rock stable 24x7 overclocket to 3.4Ghz. I used the same video cards i have in the new system. I actually went from tri fire to bi fire in the "cross-grade" (I can't really call it an upgrade yet until it's stable)

Any advice or help is greatly appreciated. Otherwise i plan to return the board to newegg for a refund and get something else.

I did a completely clean install of everything using drivers from the website. I am going to try to make a video of the behavior next time it happens. Like i mentioned i have been building my rigs for a long time and never seen something freeze like this... I plan to RMA next week unless i find a solution before hand.

Well got in DH-14 in, Seems i have a very nice 4.8 overclock going at the moment. Just uped the Vcore to 1.392v and seems stable in prime at the moment, I think a 1.4 would get me to 4.9. But i've read some stuff about 1.4 not being great for chip life?

The cooler is amazing, its not hitting 70 on load! I'll have to sign up to the club and gets some stuff together.

I might go for 5.0ghz....maybe! Not even touched Bclk yet...I've read you can only get about 3mhz clock from it (which isn't that bad) More reading i think needs to be done. I wouldn't mine trying to get this ram clocked. its nothing super tho.

Still reading about the bois tho!
