post #1811 of 3170

Windows 8 works with P2.00, so actually you don't need P2.10. I have been using Windows 8 for a week now on P2.00

I have had a few bluescreens regarding drivers. But nothing motherboard related really.

post #1812 of 3170
I've tried just about everything i know...But im getting an infinite bootloop aswell.
Im trying once more without having any extra storage attached.

Its just my cd rom and SSD with windows installation.

This is driving me up the frikkin walls.

What board is it? What's code does the debug LED state? Have you cleared CMOS? Have you pulled the BIOS battery?

I'm also curious why the latest Hardware Monitor 1.20 wont show DDR voltage.

Your ram must be old ddr3 where it uses alot higher voltage than the new ddr3. The new stuff uses like 1.25 or 1.3 i cant remember and the old stuff(which I have 6 sticks of) uses 1.65 by default. I was actually shocked I got mine to overclock since the intel recommended is so much less than the default voltage. I believe my ram is at 1.725 or something i will have to check. Its stock voltage is 1.65 and the xmp setting is 1600mhz. It is corsair dominator. I was shocked I could actually get it to 1866 but I had to loosen the timings(stock was 7-8-7-20 and I had to loosen to 8-9-8-24)

A million thanks in advance!
Honestly I have not heard any ***** or complain about bios version 2.00. I use it and havent really had anything unusual happen.

I experience a weird issue similar to a bootloop. Every now and then, it will get to the windows boot animation and just hang(freeze) so i reboot and it wants me to do startup repair. I let startup repair finish but it stops responding. I reboot and sometimes it just boots into windows like nothing happened but sometimes it freezes and i have to repeat the previous steps. The most I have had to do this is like 5 times. It just fixes itself. Not sure if it is motherboard or hard drive related. The problem is not very consistent either it is intermittent therefore it happens sometimes and not all the time but its not an every day thing.

Much appreciated, I'll give it a go! I have just formatted a pen drive to FAT32 for DOS flashing but I am nervous about doing it, is it that much safer than the windows installer?

Totally. Windows can crash/freeze or the app crash/freeze. Sods law. Doing it from within the BIOS, your only worry would be a power cut. That would be pretty rare.

I loved the Crosshair IV Formula for this feature.

according to www.xbitlabs.com/images/coolers/120-140-fans-roundup/16%20-%20Scythe%20Gentle%20Typhoon/12_scgentle_res_big.png
scythe GTs 1850 can run from 3V-12V for 1200rpm they show 8V though. Anyone could provide case fan readings(min/max) from their extreme6 with bios revision?
Extreme might have the same chip.

I used to have the windows boot animation freeze when my RAM was unstable. Actually, it wasn't unstable.. one stick was bad. Mushkin, never again. Is your RAM overclocked? If it is, relax the CL or RAS to CAS by 1, and see if it ever happens again.

Side note.. whenever I say RAS to CAS I feel like Bob Marley.
