WARNING: Use BIOS 1604 at your own risk!

http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?27967-Asus-Maximus-v-Gene-BIOS-1604

I've had endless series of problems with multiplier settings not "sticking" (my 3570K would stay at 3800 Turbo even if set otherwise) and changing the primary display between IGP and my 7970. I also couldn't get VIRTU MVP to work at all without booting to a black screen in Windows. So I decided to flash back to 1309. Thankfully I had saved some 1309 profiles on a USB drive so all I had to do is load one and back to normal. [1408 was OK but not as stable overall for me].

Well you won't have any warranty issues from re-seating your CPU heatsink and if necessary (like there's way too much TIM on it) clean and reapply some fresh TIM. As far as delidding... yeah if you have a pre-built system that tells me that a delid is NOT in your future. For a couple of reasons... one being that I presume you're not terribly comfortable with the minute details hardware-wise (or I would expect you to have built your own from scratch) and that money is of primary concern - in which case risking turning a $225 CPU into a keychain is probably not worth the risk. wink.gif

On the upside, even if you can't get past 4.2GHz without hitting temps that are too high... it's still plenty fast enough for anything 'normal people' do with their computers. I have another 3570K system at my office (that I'm using now in fact) that does really well at 4.5GHz and a tiny VCore bump... but my chip in my main rig would die at 4.2GHz if it weren't for my cooling capacity. Even so I can't go past 4.7GHz on that chip even if I had 3 more 360 rads added into the mix. frown.gif

On this site it's easy to get sucked into the competition mentality, but there's always going to be someone with a faster chip, better parts, unlimited budget, etc... and at the end of the day, an Ivy CPU running at 4.2GHz is more than adequate to keep your GPU loaded up in your favorite game unless you're planning on running 3+ screens. smile.gif

Summed up nicely. As time goes on and my knowledge increases, I will feel comfortable fiddling around. Your right, the performance is just fine. Ran Uningine Valley and got a 3450, which going by the Valley page is fine, right in the middle for 670 sli and with no OC'ing on the cards, another thing that can wait. I also read through the link that was in a thread above and was very informative, but, later...smile.gif

Been posting about this for two months. The last two Asus bios can be affected by this bug. It usually occurs when you make more than a few changes to bios, or are testing an overclock and experience serous instabilities. The best solution is to reflash bios, that will fix it. Until it happens again of course. A new bios is supposed to be in testing, and released in the near future.

I'm running BIOS 1604 on my Gene V, no issues so far.. (knock on wood..)
I flashed it a few days ago, the previous BIOS was from 03/2012 though I do not remember which exact version.
3570K @ 4.4GHz with only some minor tweaking left to do for 100% stability.. (in-progress now).

1604 bios is ok to use as are aware of the sticky multiplier simply use the cmos and enter values 1 time will guarantee them to work fine

I have used this bios since 10-jan-2013 no issues (apart from sticky values) I already knew my values for my vcore multiplier etc and entered them once.
I have found this bios to simply be smoother running when in windows compared to 1408 and 704
But I am using maximus extreme

my testing has involved folding at home for 24/5 continiously @ 100% high folding power
2500k @ 4.7Mhz
GTX 580 SLI @ 1000Mhz

as soon as you make mulitple changes after initial settings is when this bug may start sticking values and the multiplier is the obvious one but it will also start sticking on vcore and other settings ie ram speed.

Very nice rig, if you would like to join please post your CPU-Z, if you can't for what ever reason please take a picture of your name written on a piece of paper in front of your motherboard.

I can't seem to get it fully turned off either, although i did find the option to set memory size. I set it to 32mb, it was using 320mb on auto. Under Advanced>System Agent>Graphics Configuration>iGPU Memory........... Does anyone know how to turn iGPU completely off? Is this even possible?
