It was literally the easiest BIOS flash I've ever done in my life.

I put the .rom file in my usb flash drive and I wasn't sure how to go on with the flashing process so I dl the bios flash utiltiy off asus fully expecting to have to do this all manually in DOS.

I went into the BIOS to check if they had anything with flashing and there was this thing called EZ FLASH. I went inside, and it automatically detected my .rom file in my usb flash drive. I hit enter and it said, do you want to flash the bios to 0650? I hit yes. Half a minute later I was done.

The one thing I will warn you though is that your OC profiles will get erased once flashed, so write down your settings if you will forget them.

Ok I thought there was some kind of flashy animation while it was updating... dunno why his comment then, a flashing BIOS method like we've seen.

Honestly...there is absolutely no point in upgrading your system if you don't format. Performance and stability will go DOWN, not up, despite the new hardware.
Hi, I read somewhere saying the BSOD (0x127) is mostly caused by OC, e.g. not enough vcore voltage, not about drive formatting. I tried to lower the OC to 3.7GHZ on my 2500K, it was working fine for more than 2 hours before I shut it down.. Is there a dedicated post here about OC/voltage setting for 2500k+gene-z? Thanks.

I think your first step is to ensure everything is stable at stock settings. If I remember our conversation correctly, you were having problems booting to Windows after upgrading your hardware, which might have been because you hadn't formatted yet. I don't know if you have fixed that side of things yet. If so, disregard this. If not, that's where I'd start.

I don't think there's a lot of information out about ideal voltages and such, simply because the board is so new. This is what we, as early adopters, get to figure out!

It's working better so far.

At the moment I'm exhausting out of the case, but I will try intake at some point as well.
Thanks for the info. I will be interested to hear how it works out as an intake set-up.

The Noctua NH-D14 fits fine beside it's a tremendous heatsink and it's almost as large as the GENEZ itself!

I've put it just on the cpu for showing this topic.
The first pic shows the HUGE size of the heatsink!





I've built me a nice Win 7 boot usb stick with integrated SP1 and the Intel AHCI/Raid driver on it.



Tomorrow the work's going on with:
- backups from old system
- building up the new wiring in the fractal design
- remove DVD, vga card and the two 1TB Samsungs and my X-Fi out of the old system
- put them into the new one
- BIOS Update to GENEZ Beta BIOS
- firmware update of Crucial M4 SSD
- installation of OS
- installations of many programs..

Gosh, what a lot of work to since first boot!

P.S.: Hey very fine: I've found 2 SATA III and 4 SATA II cables in my GENEZ board package!
P.P.S.: The Seasonic X-560 powersource packaging was a bit extreme: the powersource itself is packed inside a black velvet bag!! Besides the black-gold design of all single elements is very nice.

HOLY CRAP THAT'S HUGE !!!

... and looks like you could do THREE FANS for a Push : Push/Pull : Pull set-up


Mine (
when I get it) looks like it was washed on super hot, and shrunken in the dryer compared to that thing ...

Yeah ... I know I read somewhere, that a guy was complaining about this board having a lack of CPU/chassis Fan connectors ??? BUT there's FIVE of them on this board (all rather well thought out in regards to placement too I might add) ... I mean just how many do you NEED ? and if somehow you do need more, they sell "Y" splitters kinda cheap.
