I got mine a few weeks ago, beautiful board but is anyone having any issues with loud noises (coil whine?) when the gpu is under load? I've already verified that the GPU is not the problem by testing it out in another system.

@lzepplin01 I think there were reports of the same problem early in this thread.
I'd give a go on Blatsz32's advice, use an alternate method for updating your bios.
BTW, why did you update in the first place? I mean were there any problems with the version you had?


@Defected87 I do get some coil whine while games are loading, but not under load when the game actually starts.
Are you positive it's coming from the card and not the assist fans?
The assist fans make a terrible squeaky noise when on high rpm.
Have you maybe set a profile for them to increase speed when temps arise?

OK so I've been trying to use the USB BIOS flashback, and all I get is flashing of the button then it goes solid. I have tried three USB sticks now and it doesn't seem to work. I downloaded the bios and renamed it to Z77ST.CAP on all of them and the same thing happened. They were all FAT formatted and the file was in the root directory.
I flashed the BIOS because I have had some instability in the system (not due to the overclock).
The 670 GTX has given some instability and RSODs but that resolved with new ASUS software. I have had a few BSODs as well.


**UPDATE

I managed to put the new BIOS on via bupdate in DOS when booting from the mobo CD. Successfully updated, but nothing changed. Still only seeing 8 GB, still no turbo ratio or internal pll settings.

No need to press the button on the back. Just insert the flashdrive in the port marked EZFLASH, go to your bios, last tab, ezflash, find the file, flash, ans voila. My case is huge, ove 100ibs, i nvr felt like turning it around, what I'm getting at is that button, I thought, was a reset button ....so when I was having issues booting after flashing to 1206, I was pressing that thing like it was an ATM cash machine. Well nothing happend. Still not sure what that btton does even though it says BIOS on it. Anyway, just do the flash from the bios.

That button is for flashing the Bios wiith the system off, insert properly prepared USB, press button, BIOS updated.

@Blatsz32 That's how I usually did it. I have literally tried all of the BIOS versions but nothing has changed. After trying flashing all of the versions in the BIOS, i tried that in DOS also using bupdate. Still no dice frown.gif

@SPMOkc73 I tried using that but it was just flashing for a few seconds, read the USB, and then went solid. According to ASUS, this means there was some sort of error. Even though I correctly named the file (Z77ST.CAP -- even tried naming them Z77ST.ROM for the heck of it) and everything and the USB is FAT formatted and the file is in the root directory. I have similarly tried all bios versions.

You guys rock :-)

Blatsz32, Thanks for all your posts.  They are very informative and helpful.  I just ordered my saber 77 system components from NE, yesterday and am not, yet, familiar with ASUS's new s/w.  Please explain what "the V-Gene software" is?

thanks

I think he is talking about the software for the ASUS Maximus V Gene motherboard.
