A shot in the dark since I don't use 3202, but is Turbo mode set to All Cores and not Auto ?

I know that on mine with 0902 the default out of the box was All Cores, and it was setting turbo at 3.8 even with 4 cores loaded.
(nice way to get out of the pack in motherboard reviews I guess wink.gif)

You need to set Turbo mode to Auto to have the "standard" stock turbo multipliers and 3.5 at 4 cores, so maybe they changed the default value to that ?

Got my Gene-Z set up. Bios is extensive even compared to the P67 Evo I had. Really nice to see in a micro atx and very glad I got this board. Priming 4.7ghz right now. I have left PLL off and would like to be able to sleep my computer so hopefully I don't need it.

Would a new BIOS chip be an alternative fix?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BIOS-CHIP-ASUS-MAXIMUS-IV-GENE-Z-/380383157726?pt=Motherboards&hash=item58909a5dde#ht_2153wt_1139

I bought one from this guy a few years ago for an ASUS M2N-E that got buggered during a flash. It was simple to install and I was up and running in no time. It says they will flash with the latest BIOS, but you could probably request a different one.

Just a thought, cause who knows how long until ASUS fixes their mistakes.


EDIT - There is also the Gene-z/Gen3 here;

Just thought i'd toss this in here since it seems to be a problem with the 3203 BIOS - since installing it I've had some new issues pop up with my system, including the Logitech G15 keyboard taking extra time to start up when I boot (takes 10-15 seconds before I can enter my password to login Win7) and CPUID Hardware Monitor is giving me lots of very strange readings (screen shot) for voltage and fan speeds. Notice the 0.14v VCORE and 65,535 RPM Fan Speeds. I did wind up installing Fan Xpert after I cleared my CMOS to get my case fans down to 40% speeds which I wasn't running before, so maybe that's a factor, but I just wanted to mention these strange new behaviors here in case anyone else is running into them.

I should be getting a new SeaSonic x-560 gold power supply in the mail tomorrow. I wonder if that will affect things.

The issues with readings on CPUID I had on the prevoius BIOS. I also have AIDA64 installed which polls sensor data.

There's a problem with the AI Suite where its monitoring will report false errors if there is other monitoring also polling. Possibly it's related. if you have fan xpert polling along with CPUID false readings get read somewhere. Whether the problem is OS thread syncing or the mobo actually reporting back bad data who knows.

It's an issue CPUID could easily work around by ignoring min/max values, or expectnig a value twice before changing. Speedfan works around that by allowing a time to be set before a value is responded to with an event, which is handy.

My G15 boots fine, along with my G19. Doesn't cause any delays for the login screen. Maybe try reinstalling drivers? Just saying that so you know it /can/ work fine.

Looks like the strange fan and voltage readings was a conflict with AI Suite after all. Apparently when I installed Fan Xpert as part of the AI Suite it turned on a few monitoring features that polled the sensors.

After turning them off in AI Suite things returned to normal in CPUID. I'm still trying to sort out the G15 issue. It seems to turn the keyboard off completely just as Win7 gets to the login screen, then the keyboard boots. Even the mouse (G700) goes dead momentarily at that point, though it comes back to life long before the G15. I poked around a bit in the BIOS settings but nothing jumped out at me as an obvious culprit.

Honestly I find AI Suite to be pretty bloated. I've uninstalled / disabled the entire thing and use speedfan instead.

Oops, I have a G13 and a G19. I was thinking G15 was my G13 gamepad, and was trying to work out how you were typing a password into it.

I do get a similar delay on my G19. At first I thought you meant the login prompt wasn't displaying. When the OS loads both the G13 and G19 "flash", which i've always assumed is synced with the time the OS loads their drivers. But it's nothing like 15 seconds. Most of the time I can type my pass straight away, sometimes there's a couple of second wait.

(it did however take me several weeks to discover that the random G19 resets were caused by my mobile phone being near the display!)

I have raided SSDs and a newer keyboard than you, so maybe the delay is longer on the 15? I can't recall noticing this only happened when the bios was updated. It's just something I've always accepted as part of having a keyboard with apps, and a super fast loading os.
