WE can't even get the Maximus IV GENE-Z68 in the USA anymore I don't think ? all I see on NewEgg these days is the Maximus IV GENE-Z68 / GEN3 and the newer Maximus V GENE-Z77.

But when we could get both ... the GEN 3 was about $20-$50 MORE here in the US depending on if there was a SALE price or if shipping was FREE or not at that particular time.

So Yeah the GEN3 would be the NEWER and thus BETTER version of the Maximus IV GENE-Z68 boards.

LA_Kings_Fan, try making all OC setups again, they must be different from BIOS to BIOS, especially if is 0208 and 3xxx. I am sure new BIOS is better.
If you will have that error in future, flash 0902 - it's the best version of ME7 BIOS AFAIK.

Would it be worth paying $50 more for the Maximus V Gene-Z or will the Maximus IV gene-z/gen3 be better value.

price in my country:

Maximus IV gene-z/gen3 ($200)
Maximus V gene-z ($250)

Depends ... do you want the Z68 chipset or the Z77 chipset ...

also the Max V Z77 has a newer version of the SupremeFX III Audio, so is maybe better ...

and it has that Mini PCIe expansion card/slot in the back ...

and lastly the Max V supports LucidLogix Virtu MVP, while the Max IV supports only Lucid Virtu ...

 

all in all I would say it's worth the extra $50 to get the Newer / better Max V Gene Z77 ... BUT if you don't NEED or will not USE any of the extra's listed, the MAX IV Gene Z68 Gen3 is a Great Board and you can put that $50 towards an SSD drive or something ? so it's really up to YOU. thumb.gif

thinking.gif I'm hoping it was because I was trying to also utilize that stupid Lucid VIRTU to work again ?

it's just a failed technology that doesn't work as advertized wth.gif, or at least I can't figure it out anyways. tongue.gif will further play around with things to see if I get BSOD w/o Lucid VIRTU ...

Thanks for that info, would they both have the same ability to OC Ivybridge and sandybridge chips?
