[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 607

post #6061 of 7118
This is my first time visiting this thread and I must say I've had no problems with each new bios (except that one that disappeared from the ASUS website). I just upgraded to 3305 and running fine. The spread sectrum functionality changed, but other than that my previous overclock is still stable.

No way I can catch up on 600 pages, but if anyone could provide a quick summary of why 3xxx is not recommended, I'd be appreciative biggrin.gif

Does anyone know how to change the Bios to default settings? Cause I tried to overclock it before and now I want to change it back to stock settings.

Wow it LIVES ! ... sorry been away for awhile with cheers.gif official LA Kings Stanley Cup Hockey GREATNESS  drunken.gif thumb.gif GO KINGS ! GO !

 

once the Playoffs are over I'll be back around more again ... good to see so many new faces, but not too many have added themselves on the GOOGLE DOC owners link, I still try to keep that updated, so if you want to be on the owners list, fill it out, LINK ON FRONT PAGE.

 

Good also to see a few long time Gene Owners are still around ... I still love this little board, and have no plans to change it out anytime soon. coolsmiley02.gif

CMOS = reset bios [there's even a button called cmos on the back of your tower]

there's all kinds of instructions [manual or asus webby site] to this EZ procedure.

Mine was very hard to get stable with the original BIOS 403. with 3202 it works perfectly, no tweaking needed really, just set the XMP profile on my memory and works great. with original BIOS had to play with memory voltages to get it to post every time.

will probably not mess with 3505 at the moment.

Here we are:

One of my best friends made his GENE Z board blackscreened with upgrading from 0902 to 3203: The 3203 adds a new Intel Management Engine Firmware 8.0.2.1410 for supporting IVY Bridge procs while the Intel ME Firmware with 0902 status has been 7.1.10.1065 besides the 0902 BIOS file does not have this firmware included!
I was not eyewitnessing what he has done but he's also not an amateur concerning this kind of job to do, you know.
- Upgrade to 3203 with USB stick and usual functionality of UEFI
- PC boots twice after update! That means, the first message that it is finished is not true. Forget about ASUS puts a readme into the BIOS or the BIOS download page... the MOST important info sticks in the ROG forum HERE!! (Blame ASUS for that bad idea!)
- the updates works fine but after that he has stability problems with the nic switched on, no stability problems with the nic switched off; This issues were severe like messages from Win7 that system service ends unexpectedly and so on. Needless to say that he has also updated the Intel ME drivers to V8.xx
- so he decides to switch his BIOS Version back to 0902, this works fine so far but his instabilities stay whether they have not been so severe than before with 3203 but some apps quits with errors and so on; Due to the fact that 0902 does not know anything about the Intel ME firmware update, he has no info in the BIOS screen about Intel ME Firmware version
- some tries to downgrade Intel ME Firmware like posted e.g. here as a solution have not worked at all (after a while the error 8193 occured, and yes, his filename was shortened...), so his 0902 is working with the 8.0.2.1410 Intel ME firmware
- we discussed that on the 9th of May and suddenly were aware that ASUS released another fresh BIOS Version 3305 on that day
- things could not getting worse and we decide via teamspeak to give that version a try
- bad idea, now he gets a blackscreen and nothing works
- he stumbled the BIOS battery out and left the pc without power overnight
- Error 55 but this seems to be wrong because his memory has not had any problem before (G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL, Ripjaws), BIOS battery has been pulled out already, no solution left; ASUS support tells us this old story... the guarantee and support in germany is other than in US and canada u know.
- meanwhile he pulled the board out and sent it back to seller Mindfactory

Our personal subjective conclusion, added with different similar experiences from posts all over the internet and also in this forum:
- BIOS 3xxx must be used only for Ivy Bridge procs because of added Intel ME firmware upgrade which gets issues in combination with Sandy Bridge procs
- besides there might be lucky persons, that 3xxx works with your board and Sandy Bridge proc
- the difference might have something to do with internal GENE Z board versions: maybe all older GENE Z have issues with 3xxx BIOS and all newer ones don't have them

Due to the fact that my GENE Z is from May 2011 i'm going to stick with 0902.


@LA_KINGS_FAN: Heyho good old guy! How your doing? Hope your team won the Championship!? Ah i see they reached already the half fimals. We're eagerly awaiting the european soccer championships because the regular Bundesliga ends with place 10 out of 18 for my team the 1. FC Nuremberg which is a very good place for our low budget!

Thank you for your response! Now, how do I determine when my board was manufactured? I bought it in Feb of this year.
