This may be a long shot, but are you sure you're entering the multiplier info in the correct place (ie: turbo multiplier instead of CPU multiplier)?

Hi guys, I'm completely new to the site, and I hope this is the right place to ask this question. I've read all 40 pages of posts so far and could not find what I was exactly looking for. I'm trying really hard to decide which board to get here, and to be honest I only see it coming down to 2 features. I don't care for, or even want WiFi, Bluetooth or dual NIC. I also could care less for eSata on the back plane either. The only I/O thing that might make me lean towards the Deluxe (besides my 2 questions below) is the plethora of USB3, though it's really just the 2 extra in the back I'll be making use of, as my case only has 2 3.0 on the front.
Though there's a comparison chart showing some of the differences between the different boards linked in an earlier post, there's one feature they don't touch on, or explain very well. The PLX Bridge chip, or whatever the acronym is. It's the chip only found in the Deluxe board between the PCIe slots. From what I've heard, mainly from JJ on the ASUS website is marketing speak. He states that it will allow me to manage more PCI lanes if I'm using a lot of resources, such as SLi, Audio Card, etc. the thing he doesn't answer is where this threshold is. I'm going to be running 2 GeForce cards in SLi, and an HT Omega card. When will I need this extra controller? This could be a decision maker automatically checking the buy Deluxe button.
The second difference has to do with my lack of knowledge about the power to the chip and what it does and it's stats mean. The Deluxe being Digital Phase 20, the apro 16 and the -V 12. Doesthis stat, or how does this stat, contribute to overall performance? I want to overlock the 3770K to get the best use out of it as well. However, I'm not looking to finely tweak every setting. I just want to use the UEIF and press the button for "make it go faster".
Could someone give me a run down on these two features and how they contribute to the overall value of the Deluxe board? If they're not significant, I don't see any reason to not just get the Pro, or even the -V. Keep in mind, I have absolutely no problem paying a premium for these features if they add value. I just know I don't need a lot of the other things that make the Deluxe unique. Thanks guys.
This is what we call a wall post tongue.gif You have a lot of questions, I would just ask one or two at a time to make sure each one is addressed proper.
To be honest, just get the best one you can afford or if you are trying to save money get the cheaper of the two. I doubt you will miss any of the features you don't have.

Found no difference at all to the weird ram behaviour. So I flashed backed to the latest bios (0703).
But that's not the crazy part.
Just to test things out, I punched in x46 multi in the UEFI... but every time I press enter, it goes right back to x35, like some sort of auto-correct function!
So what in the heck is going on here?
I have seen this before. Solder an extra LED to the post code reader and when you try and boot it should give you the RMA code.
Kidding aside, every board I have heard of not going to full Multi after a while needs to be RMA'ed. Sorry.

Entering a value in either spot results in the auto-correct-to-x35-multiplier behaviour.

Gonna clear the CMOS jumper for a few hours with the battery pulled. If not.. reseat the CPU.

And if that fails, I'm going to RMA this thing.

Either or.
If you either go through control panel, or right click on the speaker icon in the lower right system bar... click on the playback tab and select the output device (speaker/line out)
Now click the configure option, this will give you options to set the device for Stereo, 5.1, 7.1 audio.

If it is only selected as Stereo it will only output stereo sound.

The Onboard or discrete sound card also have a setting which can influcence the sound config, but the Windows setting is important.

Thanks I will try this when i get home from work today. I really hope it works. As I have a pimp'in sound system. I did just update my bio and also over clocked my CPU. It wouldn't let me do this before.

I'm having a problem getting into my bios. No matter how fast I press delete the ASUS screen appears for a moment (usually with a black box in the middle) and then I get sent into the windows boot mode thing which I think normally shows up if you press delete after the bios screen.

When I first installed windows I didn't have this problem, then it started to happen occasionally, now it happens EVERY time. I'm using a Logitech wireless keyboard. In order to get into the bios I have to unplug the USB wireless adapter for the keyboard, turn on the computer, and the moment the ASUS screen appears, I quickly plug it in and hit delete before the ASUS screen disappears. So when I turn the computer on and the keyboard is not plugged in the ASUS screen stays on slightly longer and it doesn't have the black box in the middle of the screen.

When the keyboard is plugged in the ASUS screen flashes for less than a second. I assume unplugging the keyboard works because it hangs for a moment "looking" for a keyboard that it cant find, and if I plug it in and then press delete before it goes to the error screen saying no keyboard, I can get into the bios. So the problem isn't that it doesn't recognize my keyboard, and the battery for the keyboard seems fine.


And I'm definitely pressing delete fast enough, I'm practically smashing it from the moment I press restart on the computer. Its getting really frustrating. Any ideas of what I can do to resolve this? All the usb modes in the bios are set to enabled. And what's up with the black box that I see in the middle of the bios screen when the keyboard is plugged in? frown.gif
