I will try to refine my BIOS but I don't think this will help any. I might have to post a video to explain.The problem is the "Power on self test LED" for the VGA stick's. Once the VGA self power test light shuts off (about 3.5-5 min) it boots lightning fast, same as before. I just cant find any more info on what the lights activity might mean, or why it would hang up like that all the sudden. Even dose it with the built in IGPU too. I'll try disabling unneeded stuff in the BIOS and report back.

Ok, Wanted to report back. I was able to speed up the boot up time(maybe a second or two), but as I suspected speeding up the boot up time did nothing for the power on self test.

It might be a long shot, but maybe a real technician from ASUS could explain the issue (certainly not the usual tech support).
Something definitely seems to be rotting on your board, Khaotic, I would just return the board if it's still under warranty. smile.gif

owcraftsman, thanks for the suggestions. I only boot up my system once a day and it's usually pretty fast, so it doesn't bother me.

The problem is that one of the oldest parts in my system are the Samsung F1 drives, which have been in constant use for 5 years and they are both in RAID-0. I make monthly/(weekly) backups now, since I'm afraid that the drives are soon to be dead.

I have had weird issues with the drives before as well. They pop up every once in a while. Sometimes the storage manager in the boot up shows that an error has occurred on one or the other drive. HDTune although reports that there are no bad sectors on the RAID. Won't bother doing the health checks, because I would have to disconnect the drives and individually check them in another system.
Anyway - they work right now, so no reason to worry yet. biggrin.gif

Having had to deal with ASUS's poor technical support and horrid RMA service I would like to exhaust EVERY option. If I have to RMA this board and it go's down like the last few RMA's have I'm better off saving myself the time and money and buy a new board(thinking about the ASRock z68's). Dealing with ASUS is a last ditch option. Thanks for the suggestion though.

figured I'd post this here too since most people will miss it in the other thread ;x

Some of you may remember the issue from last year that was fixed, it seems to be back in 3207, basically, I had two profiles with two different offsets of around + 0.075 and 0.065, when switching between the two it gave me an offset of +0.910 which would give me around 2.0v in windows? tongue.gif I've switched offsets on this bios before and it's been fine so I'm not sure if there is another variable causing it but the problem is there so be carefull smile.gif

EDIT: just did it again to make sure it wasn't a one off..

I can't understand how things are that bad in the US. The biggest reseller here handles problematic products that are under warranty with ease.
I have returned a couple of things and gotten replacements a couple days later.

Does the warranty only work through the manufacturer over there? Over here everything is done by the reseller and there is nothing to worry about myself as a customer. thumb.gif

YO YO

New owner of asus z68 here

Anyone know how to Narrow the load voltage fluctuations.

I have the 2500k CPU at 4.8ghz stable

Load IBT, range is 1.33-1.352-1.360

Load small FTT Prime95, range is 1.328-1.336

As you can see 1.36 is much higher than 1.328.

Is there a way to tweak some settings narrow those fluctuations by some setting???

That fluctuations is because of different software, IBT stress your CPU more than Prime95 and its completly normal.

Here in the state's the re seller's (newegg, Microcenter, ect) offer a 30 days no question's asked return, In some case's you have to pay a restocking fee. My board is around 6 months old so I have to RMA it with ASUS. In my experience with ASUS their tech support and RMA policy's suck. When its all said and done it costs about 25-30 bucks to ship a mobo back to ASUS(packing material's and the box must meet their "standards" or they will refuse your RMA and ship your mobo back). I have sent more than one board back to ASUS and been stiffed. IME Their products are great, their return policy's suck. If this had happend in the first 30 days I would have taken it back to Microcenter already. Their return policy's are amazing, but they only offer 30 days unless you buy an extended warranty package from them. ASUS offer's a 3 year (in some case's 5) warranty. Its this reason I would like to exhaust all other options before trying an RMA.

However nobody know's much of anything about these boards power on self test, so it look's like I'm sending it back.

We have a return policy over here as well, we can return unopened or faulty products and there is no problem with getting the money back within the first 2 weeks I think.

Most components have a warranty of 1-3 years from the reseller, depending on the product. If I'm not mistaken, my Z68 board has 2 year warranty from the reseller and after that from ASUS.
