it could be punishment for buying a GTX 650 Ti instead of something better for it... tongue.gif

seriously though I hope you get it sorted.
can you link this issue that many speak of.?
thanks.

Have you tried seating the gpu in another slot or without it even in the PC?

I have seen a lot of reviews lately about these boards failing with similar issue after a year )you always see bad reviews like this and rarely happy people). The bad thing is all of the customers that have had poor experiences dealing with the Aus RMA process and them wanting to charge for "broken" parts they seem to find even under warranty. I do believe I would rather put the money and time wasted into using this board as a frisbee and going rogue for a different company from now on after the steady decline in customer care over they past couple of years.

Just in the final stages of a similar situation.

I've got a P8Z68 Deluxe Gen 3 that's pretty much dead. It started with the loss of my top PCIe x16 slot. Contacted ASUS Support via the telephone and got an Advanced RMA right away. Fortunately I was still able to use my computer. Just had to move the GPU to the second PCIe slot. It took about 2 weeks for ASUS to locate another motherboard and then another week to arrive (due to the Thanksgiving holiday.)

I inspected the board and it looked like crap. The back of the motherboard was smudged and looked like something had been cleaned off of it plus there were fingerprints all over the back of it. The front was mostly clean, but the heatsinks had some unidentifiable gunk on them. It cleaned off easily enough, but still. And lastly the board was warped, bowing in a the back right near the center of the I/O bracket. But my thinking was that I didn't care what it looked like, as long as it worked. My thinking was optomistic. Couldn't get either of the top two PCIe x16 slots to recognize a graphics card. The only PCIe slot that would work was the bottom one.

So, tear everything down again and reinstall the original broken board. Go to fire it back up, won't post, Get a 55 error code. Eventually discovered that the A1 DIMM slot is now dead as well. But the system will boot and run with two sticks of RAM. Call up ASUS support again and inform them that their replacement board needs a replacement board.

I haven't written ASUS off completely, but this hasn't helped my confidence much. I don't have an issue with their customer support. I was always able to get in touch with them and the RMA handled quickly and without any hassle. But I'm not impressed with this board.

Which BIOS version are you at?

Current OC:

BIOS is an offset of -0.020V and the CPU PLL Voltage is set to 1.7V. All C States are enabled currently, will see if it causes any problems.

Darn it, I think I messed up a setting somewhere, it won't idle back down to 1.6Ghz at idle.
Nevermind, there it goes.

Did upgarding to 3604 improve your core voltage overclocking?

It seems to have, I did get better stability with a higher negative offset, (now at -0.030V iirc).

Nice to hear that! I meant 3603, btw.

So, I say that the recommended BIOS is the one that doesn't give you problems.  I'm still using version 1850, and it's just about a full year and a half old.  I don't care because everything is 100% problem free.  I wouldn't update even if every last member on OCN told me to.  I have no interest in disturbing it.
