Thanks Outcasst, Likethegun & Rakin. My Blueray is in transit so it will give me some more good reading time. I'm trying to follow it to the letter. However I got absolutely nothing on this HDD cable.

Cheers Fellas Hopefully come Tuesday I am up and running:)

Just plain itching to get it done now.

Hey folks. Today I finally installed WIN8 and I am loving it

 

Quick question.

 

On the drivers page of our MOBO at asus.com, there are no USB drivers under Windows 8.

 

Should I just go ahead and install the Win7 USB drivers?

 

Thank you.

I don't think it needs them for Windows 8, not sure

Has anyone had any benifits of installing bios version 1616. Is there any features for windows 8 on there besides the quick info ASUS supplies.

I have been on 1504 and it has been solid. I have a great overclock @ 4.6ghz on my 2600k and dont want to dab into any unnecessary waters. i know i can flash back but I read a few people here were having issues.

If anyone has had a good experience with the latest bios overclocked could you please let me know thanks.

my experience is good, just press f12 in the bios at every important bios page to get a screenshot (have a usb flash drive plugged in). It works like print screen in windows, what you see is what is screenshotted, so if a page has a scroll bar you need multiple pics per page

Thanks man I flashed it got all my settings back up after doing a back up of my BIOS over clocked and optimized defaults.

And it worked flawlessly my overclocking went very well. 1616 BIOS no problems on my end.biggrin.gif

Your spikes aren't going to exceed the vid limit because you can't disable LLC or vdroop... so i'm not sure what you mean by having it disabled during your clock. Even at 0% its going to have a voltage range. at a 4.4 clock @ 1.25v, that is considered average and not extreme. So there is no need to have a higher setting than default there, which is probably why you didn't push to vid limit.
LLC is directly affected by cpu vid. At 0% it still takes into consideration the "droop". What it does at higher levels, is increases the range limits so that your CPU doesn't crash during high clocks with high voltages. hence the reason why your idle may be higher when it is "on" or at a higher percentage.
edit: Oh, I just realized you meant about the "droop." When I said droop, I was simply referring to the naturally occurring fluctuation that occurs when your processor goes from idle to load and vice versa. But yes, vdroop is essentially like LLC in that it is a safety mechanism that averages a safe voltage to the processor.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. smile.gif I've settled with 0% for now. It's been fine and did not exceed the limit during load change just like you said.



BTW, that graph is from Anandtech and not my actual settings. Mine is 4.4GHz at 1.176v. Stress tests ongoing.

Oh, and I found out what happened to my M/B. It wasn't the battery which wasn't a surprise. What surprised me was how a BIOS flash done in UEFI/BIOS could result in a bad flash. Everything went smooth when I did it; showing successful and such. I say bad flash because when I did it again but this time through the Asus' USB BIOS Flashback when power off, it fixed the problem. I thought flashing BIOS in UEFI/BIOS was safe enough compared to in Windows environment. Did it with my previous M/Bs and all worked fine. So, 1616 BIOS is not the problem.

Now just to replace the battery, I had to take the loop down.

Very nice! I wish I knew the actual voltage ranges for the LLC settings to give you... but as I don't do any extreme overclocking I have never had to mess with it... I'm sure someone out there has though and you could probably find the numbers if you ever need to. But, 0% is just fine for me too @ 4.5 and ~ 1.25v. I'm assuming that higher clock at around 1.3+v is where your going to want to start messing with it, but that is just speculation.

How to do this in Windows 8?
