[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 617

post #6161 of 7108
Hey guys. I just bought an Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z Gen 3 with an i5 3570k. It came with firmware 0402 and I'm getting an F2 error. From doing a little research the problems should be fixed by updating my firmware. Is there a way to update through USB/CD/ROG connect? Or do I have no choice but to borrow a sandy bridge? Thanks.

you have to use a SB chip to update the bios. if you cant get one from a friend, i'm sure they will update it in a computer store.

Just a short info:
I've updated my GENE Z UEFI now successfully from 0902 to 3402 and i don't have had any issues with update itself nor with running my rig since then. So i've made totally other experiences than a friend of mine who gets a defective board with updating from 0902 to 3305, following errors with missmatching CPU and downgrading the UEFI back to 0902. This has destroyed his UEFI as a whole.

OFFTOPIC also: @Westcoast Icehockey m8 wink.gif I'm planning also a GPU upgrade but i will change back from AMD/ATI to NVidia for the GTX670 is more energy efficient than the HD7970 especially with dual displays in use.
My choices are the Gigabyte Windforce GTX670 or maybe the ASUS GTX 270 Direct CUII TOP because of their 2xSlot design and the silent running fans.

Get the Asus GTX 670 DCII non-TOP.

The TOP versions have had a few teething problems and Asus had to release a new bios for it.

Mine runs at 1299mhz and is solid as a rock.

guys. just a quick and important question. do the power an reset button on your motherboards click when you press them? mine seems to be broken. power button has some sound and returns back to its possition, but reset button is completely silent with ni click and it doesnt go bac for a while. is it with all gene motherboards, or am i the only lucky paranoid guy?

guys, how does the mobo react when it detects an overheating? Does it restart or do nothing at all?

Not sure but I would imagine there is some sort of process for that. In the bios there is a thermal control section so it has to do something, just not sure how asus manages it. I have thermal control on, its been a while since I have been in the bios but I think its where the vrm settings are.
