hope this helps.
it said it was a memory management error on one of the posts.

edit: It also said it could be malware and gave links for 3 free utilities to check memory , harddrive and malware.

I have norton antivirus so I'm pretty sure it isn't a malware issue. I ran the memtest for just 1 pass with the odd memory frequency reading and it had 30,000 errors. I'll do the overnight on default ram values and see what turns up.

Just wanted to clear up one thing I know how to set the fan speeds and adjust them. My problem with the fan speeds is random readings of the cpu fan reporting it is not running when it is and it's rpm readings in thermal radar and also bios jumping from anywhere from n/a to 30,000 (Just on the cpu fan not the chassis.) Which also sometimes causes a problem when I turn the PC on from shutdown and I'm brought to a splash screen saying the cpu fan is not running.

Thanks for the replies.

@fearnot, try putting the cpu fan on another header so you know it can keep the cpu cool and hook another fan to the cpu header. See what happens, if you get fan errors on the header the actual cpu fan is hooked to now, it looks like a broken wire or poor connector on the cpu fan. If the cpu header still reads an error with the extra fan, it looks like the mobo fan header has an issue.

Anyone flashed the new bios as yet? got any feedback regards stability or anything interesting?

Thanks
post #3134 of 10163
Everytime I reboot my computer it will not POST, nothing on screen, but everything is turned on. If I shut it down and boot it back up, it tells me my overclocking has failed, points me to the BIOS to change it, but at this point I just save and exit and it works. wut?

main impression is that temps are 1/3 degrees lower than 1304; these are my temps after 1h and half of CSGO.

@axxess+ btw nice system looks like you did it right.
I use the auto overclock feature in the bios. Before this upgrade I havent realy tried to overclock a machine since the celery 300a @450 :>
I would post your settings and methodology ( major ones ) in here so the guys can look at them and get specifics on the best way to overclock this board and chip.
You can just edit your post with the settings . At the same time possibly they can explain why ckicking ok lets it stay.

Good luck

Well, it took a lot of try/error, but since I had this CPU I had unlocked it(with Gigabyte before) using the Core Unlocker. I upp'd the CPU multiplier to 17.5, keeping the FSB stock, and upping the voltage to 1.36V, with Ultra High LLC, so it can go up to 1.415V during load, with nice temps of 51C max. For the northbridge, same concept, upp'd it to 2800Mhz, as it wouldn't post @ 3Ghz no matter the voltage, and I set the voltage to 1.35V with Auto LLC. Everything is fine and dandy for those.

To OC my RAM, I simply lowered my timings until it wouldn't boot/BSOD while keeping the voltage @ 1.65V. Everything is Prime95 stable (24hrs).
I usually BOINC all the time I'm not using my computer, and my computer is on 24/7, so about 16 hours of BOINC everyday.

Follow up on what I've tried, I couldn't get an overnight memtest without errors I tried out both ram sticks in DIMM A2 and couldn't get into windows 9 out of 10 times. I ran Memtest separately on each stick and got errors on both. I tried the ram on my brothers gigabyte/fx computer and the ram tested fine. I tried the ram speeds at the 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 and at the Mem OK settings.

On the cpu fan error problem I tried SgtHawkers idea and the cpu fan ran fine without any errors on the chassis fan header.

I plugged a 3 pin fan into my cpu header and got zero errors or problems, but when I plugged a 4 pin fan into the cpu header I got the not running error or the speeds jumping all over the place even though the fan is staying at a steady rpm.

So what do you guys think? Do I need to Rma my board?
post #3139 of 10163
My board will not read the bios rom from usb. Before the obvious questions I have flashed it before, to 1304, the usb is ntfs and I have tried 2 different ones. When I go into the flash utility and click to the rom on usb it says not a ufi bios file. It is from the asus site and another member posted me his version of the new one in a pm. I have loaded optimised defaults and just gone through the clear cmos routine to see if that would help. I have had problems with this board and bios before, ie, when I bought it I was using windows 8 preview on my previous board so wanted it on this one. It would not install win 8 out of the box, after bios flash to the windows 8 64 1304 it still wouldn't install the os. After flash to 1304 win 7 64 bit I installed win 7 and followed the upgrade to win 8 preview. That was the only way could install win 8. If I install a fresh copy now though it installs straight away on the current bios. Im at a loss, is my board faulty?

Thanks in advance

The new Sabertooth BIOS rocks. I'm now able to run my 8150 at 4.6Ghz on 1.406V CPU / 1.156 NB / 1.306 DRAM. That's 60C on room air with all cores wide open using AIDA64, so that's max without a better cooler.

Not a bad bump.
