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.

I would try running memtest 86+ and make sure the memory is OK, let it run a few times. Possibly even remove 2 sticks and see if it happens. Which BIOS are you on? Wonder if this can be a raid issue with the controller? I haven't used raid on this board though.

No Gene-Z does not Support Virtu MVP - you gotto get a Maximus V Gene for that.

I doubt it will work with a Sandy Bridge iGPU tho. Ivy Bridge iGPU is quite more powerful.

hi following question.
I got for a freind of mine the gene-z/gen3 of this board.
When i build up this pc i looked to make everything fine but still, when he uses his headset with frontmic and frontaudio then the mic isn't working.
The Realtek HD Audio Manager recognices the mic but if you talk in skype noone can hear.
if you plug everything in the back of the Mainboard the mic works

What model is the LAN chip on the Maximus IV GENE-Z/GEN3? ASUS states: "Intel®, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller(s)", which is NOT helpful!

I`m building a new rig but here is some issue

Processor - I72700K
M.B Asus Maximum IV GENE-Z/GEN3

Ram- 16 GB GKILL ( 4 MODULE )

CORSIR 120 GB SSD

Seagate 3TB HDD

My issue is DIMM slot A1, A2 and B1 is not working. When i put RAM in these slot it gives me debug code 55 and 53 sometimes , no memory detected , but when i put RAM on slot 4, B2 ram is working fine and system is working very fine and fast . I`m not sure what is issue with other 3 slots , are these slots are dead ? any one ever face such issue ?

Right now i`m only able to use 4GB of ram as other 3 ram slots not working

I ran memtest 86 for 5 days straight with no errors while i was out of town last week. I think that definitively rules out a memory problem...

I am on 0402 because everyone here is complaining of problems with 3203...

What kind of raid problem are you suggesting? Intel reports everything is A OK.

Update for guys with problems since flashing 3XXX and ended up with problems including (but not limited to) an A0 debug q-code and memory problems.

The guys over at flashrom were able to guide me through a downflashing process that brought me back to 0402. I had to use Linux Mint, and completely erase my BIOS, then rewrite it all in Mint, but I'm not running with "AA" q-code, my memory reads FULL 8 GB, not 7.90 out of 8...and my CPU overclocks perfectly back to 4.70 GHz stable again.

Big thanks to flashrom.

Anyone knows if the GTX 680 runs with the Gene-Z (not 3rd gen.)
