I've been running 1304 for a while it seems fine, no problems with the FX8150 @ 4.8ghz, temps seem slightly better.

I've been running bios 1304 for a couple of days now (upgraded from the previous bios 1208), here are my observations;
1. still got the usual bsod (code 0x0000003b), happens randomly.
2. the motherboard still beeps randomly, whild browsing in chrome or playing games, two short beeps. Can't find any info on that. Someone suggested plugging into non HD header, but there is only one...

Other than the usual problems, I didn't notice any improvements or changes.

Sounds like you have a defective board. Mine, at 4.4Ghz, never does any of that. Send it back.


If I can't find a good reason to update the BIOS I won't. Reentering all those settings is a real pain.

4ghz 14x286fsb 9-9-9-27 1587mhz memory not stable
4ghz 14x286 9-9-9-27 1125mhz memory is stable
cpu stock speed 9-9-9-27 1600mhz memory is stable

Why my 4ghz memory is not stable and cpu stock speed same timing and stuff is?

My bios , maybe can help, vers 1208

x6 at 4.1 Ghz ( 4,2 in winter) 1,488 V ( I have luck whit this CPU think)
NB 3,25 GHz VNB=1.2 ( with multi 14x reach 3Ghz, V is the same 1.2)
HT 1,95 GHZ V=auto


the rest of values set to auto

spread spectrum VRM MUST BE ACTIVE!! not auto, important in auto my computer dont load , just crash again and again, set to ON all works great.


And the CPU part, this is a lottery, so depend of your luck with the CPU
FSB 325
Multi 12,5x
RAM 1732 Mhz VRAM=1.65 ( are gskills ripjaw 2133 CL9)
phase control optimized( just for what sounds good, i have no idea xDDD)
CPU power load 130%
NB power load 120%


Forgive my english its no my native language, just try to help people asking for how to set NB frecuency higher than 2,8Ghz and how many Voltage is needed.


I'll try the new version
post #2619 of 10107
yeah, I thought of that, it's such a pain though, I still have some time I think, hopefully my search will turn out successful.
Someone mentioned plugging the front panel audio to a non hd audio header on the motherboard, but there is only on audio header there, and I tried a soundcard which worked without issues on my old pc. When the beep occurs there is nothing logged in event viewer, it happens maybe once an hour. The bsod happened only once so far, code 3b. Very frustrating, the beep comes in through the headphones as well as the external speaker, I didn't think this m/b had a speaker, I read it uses leds for error reporting, etc.
Anyone else having this problem.

thanks for your help

update on m/b beeping; I disabled audio in bios, beeping stopped, tried it for a couple of days. Now, I decided to see if a sound card which I had laying around would work, so I put it in the pci express slot (one right below 2nd graphics card, I have 2 in sli), installed drivers, and about an hour later - boom, beeping started again. Sounds like it's related to audio, b/c soon as I've audio enabled the beep comes back. I'm at a loss now, really hope it's not the board, I've never seen anything like it before, and I've put together a few pc's. Guess I could call Asus, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
