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.

This is the exact issue I'm facing right now, like USB BIOS Flashback was just put on the motherboard and wasn't finalized to work at all. However I cannot start up the PC, it just boot loops because I messed up the BIOS.

It was doing this same behavior however even before I messed up the BIOS, couldn't use USB BIOS flashback to downgrade BIOS or flash custom BIOS so I had to go through loopholes. Regretting it so much right now.

I have used the feature before on my MAXIMUS VI HERO so I know how it works, just it's completely not working at all for me on this mobo.

Hi to everyone, i need advice. Today my new GTX 970 video card will arrive but i have a doubt.
On my mobo there are one video card, one pci-e 1x sound card, one pci-e 4x revodrive3.
By this configuration this mobo runs the graphic card slot at 8x instead of 16x. The old gtx580 runs perfectly but the gtx970?
Must i take off the sound card in order to run new 970 at 16x?
At 8x i loose performances?
Sorry for my english
Thanks

No not with single GPU configuration. Impact is minimal at best.

In that same logic, dual GPUs also work by x8 configuration (1 x16 lane divided to two) and performance is those GPUs are not bus speed limited but rather thermal limited (since they are closer together and all the transistors are put on the same PCB, they are downclocked to accommodate)

Do you know if there is some compatibility problem between this mobo and my msi gtx 970?
If i run 3dmark, after few second pc turns off and then reboots
Gaming assassin's creed unity same thing happens after 1 our
I also try to remove revodrive 3, the creative sound card and all hdd without changes
If it was a overheating problem i should have blue screen, not this
Using the old gtx580 no problem
Is it a power supply problem?
I have an Enermax Infiniti 720W EPS 12V V2.92 compliant
the graphic card has the latest bios version
motherboard has the latest bios version
Any ideas?

My Sabertooth Z77 still has BIOS 1708 installed. I am having no issues at all, but would there be any benefit to updating to 2104?

you dont have to worry about a thing.
i have a gigabyte GTX 970 G1 in my system and i have a Sabertooth Z77 as well

1sr, have you tried running your system with just the Card and OS hard drive in it ?
2nd have you uninstalled your nvidia drivers completely and reinstalled with the latest drivers ( a clean install where it deletes the old drivers)
3rd record your temps when you game.

if non of those work, then try installing OS onto a empty hard drive (spare one) install all your mobo and g-card drivers, run 3dmark bearing inmind that its only your G-crad thats plugged in and no other cards.

give that a try and let us know.

Now my gtx970 runs perfectly
3dmark has no problem
My old 720w Enermax infiniti wasn't enough. It seems to be impossible
Minimun spec tell about 500w

Hello guys,

I am new here smile.gif.
I've had this board for a couple of years now.

I had my issues but nothing major until now...
I am on the latest BIOS v.2104

A while ago I installed Windows 7 in UEFI mode - I used to have in legacy BIOS mode.
I wanted this so that I could boot all my OSes from UEFI(I also have Linux and something else...)

It worked for a while but then I started having problems. Now that I think back it might be related to the fact that I used efibootmgr from linux to remove boot entries.
Either way, this is what happens:
When I reboot my computer, it no longer finishes POST - I get the TFU logo and it freezes.
The only solution I found is to unplug all my HDDs, shut off the PSU, wait 30s and then restart with only the windows HDD plugged in.
This usually works after a few tries...

I tried clearing the CMOS to wipe any misconfigurations - did not help.

Does anyone know how to get the 80h POST codes on this mobo? My old EVGA used to have a 2 digit display that would show that but this one does not seem to have such a thing...
Also, could it be a compatibility issue with Windows 7? Windows 7 does not boot if I disable CSM for example.

I tried to find resources about UEFI debugging - I have a serial TTL cable that I could use but I can't figure out where are the debug serial pins on this mobo. Has anyone tried this?

I know this is a long post ... any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!
