@kevindd992002, you can use 0xxx BIOSes with ME v7 or 3xxx with ME v8, but the combination of 0xxx and ME v8 will not work.
I tried nearly all combinations and 0902 with standard ME v7 version appears to be the best for Windows XP/Vista/7 for SB.

Hmmm, ok. When you say best, is that in terms of overclocking stability and potential?

Can I downgrade 3xxx with ME8 to 0xxx with ME7?

@kevindd992002, my 2500k can't work above 51x, so it isn't much about great OC potential but about overall stability at 4.5 - 5 Ghz.
You can downgrade to whatever version you want using reflash.bat from FTK.

Hello guys!

I have some problem/question.
First I start my spec after the problem. smile.gif

Motherboard: Asus Maxiumus IV gene-z gen3 now the very last Bios UPG on it
CPU: i5 2500k
Cooler: Noctua D14
RAM: 8GB XMS Memory kit for dual channel systems, 2000MHz, 9-10-9-27, 1.65V ( http://www.corsair.com/en/memory-by-product-family/xms-classic/cmx8gx3m2a2000c9.html ) @ XMP profile 1.5 or 1.6 V I guess. I can check if necessary.
VGA: MSI 560 TI 448 OC PE TWINFROZEN III @ 820 / 2000 +0mV or 900/2200 +0.70mV
SSD: Kingston SataII 128
Win8 64bit but I have some kind of same issue with Win7 64.

I think that will be enough.

Now my raio at the bioas is AUTO ... If I'm right that means 3.3 ghz
There is an option to 4.2 or 4.6. If I chose the 4.2 it looks good but later some strange thing coming like... I play with a game (starcraft2) running perfect but once stop the screen for 1-1.5 sec and go on ... (no big battle, nothing) and during a 30 game 1-2 times again. It is very annoying!!

I used to try to reach 4.7ghz with adjustment everything but about @ 4.5-6 Start to make some CORRUPTED FILES and that wasn't a new clear system so I didn't want to lose any data then I stopped that OC and go back to "stable" 4.2

But few days ago with my 4.2 (and XMP ram and no other changes) the game LOST the replay file what i have just saved and the other one could load "missed data " or something. I downloaded java upg, tried to run but that was corrupted (I guess) cuz didn't want to run after that I restart my PC and the Windows started repairing its self. :/

It is very annoying because I bought this "high end", "OC" motherboard to use OC IN SAFE...not to lose any data or stopping game or stay @ standard ghz.

Please somebody tel me why this is happening, how can I stabilize this, what is the most safe OC (I know the non OC smile.gif ) but about ...4-4.2-4.5 or something and what I need to change in my bios settings.

Please write if you have real knowledge not just guessing.

Thanks in advance! thumb.gif

Got that. But with the 0xxx BIOSes, do you get better stability (for 4.5 to 5GHz) compared to the 3xxxx?
post #6536 of 7108
@kevindd992002, yes, better stability on lower voltages.

Thanks for the confirmation. What ME7 firmware version is the latest though?

What exactly will not work?
post #6539 of 7108
@kevindd992002, don't remember the number, but it's the version in 0902.rom itself.
@ucode, ME version on Main tab will be N/A and many things will not work, like iGPU, half of the memory, X.M.P, Turbo-multipliers, etc. 0xxx versions are compatible with ME v7, 3xxx - with ME v8, other combinations for P8xxx boards are untested by ASUS and unsupported.

But my BIOS is 0301, the initial release, and I don't think that contains the latest ME7 right?
