Asus Rampage IV Extreme - Slow BIOS start?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

Just recently built my new rig (in sig) with an Asus Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard, and have a few concerns.

Firstly, the bios seems to boot really slow, it'll show the Republic of Gamers logo for about 3-5 seconds, then flash the screen black, show it again for about 1 second, flash black, then show it again for 1-2 seconds before going into bios. Just wondering if this is normal? If I go into the bios and turn off the Full Logo option, it just sits on a black screen for 10 seconds or so before going into the BIOS.

I have attempted to update the BIOS drives, and after installation, it still happens frown.gif

Secondly, using any of the pre-overclock settings (like the generic, gamers, extreme, etc) comes back with an Overclock Error, and doesn't seem to want to work whatsoever.

What settings would people recommend for an air-cooled intel i7 3930k with a CoolerMaster X6 CPU Cooler?

Cheers for any help!

The multiple flashing of the logo is normal.

Auto overclocking is not recommended (cause its not good) so don't worry about it thumb.gif

As for your overclock & cooler, set the multiplier in BIOS to 42 & CPU vcore to 1.32v & run prime95 to check for stability.
If temps go over 80c but stable, reduce your your vcore 0.005 (1.3150v) & retest. If you get a BSOD or a worker fails, reduce multi by 1 (X41) & retest....

Ah ok.. but it actually stalls for around 15-20 seconds on the logo (just timed it), and then a further 5 seconds or so after it flashes again. Why does it take so long?

Ok, fixed it by installing the most latest drivers (seems I wasn't updating it correctly).
Much quicker boot times now.

Only issue I have now is that I accidentally turned off USB settings in the BIOS, so now my keyboard won't work until it launches WIndows... is there a way to re-enable USB power in the BIOS via Windows? I can't push any buttons to get into the BIOS because well, the keyboard won't work.. frown.gif

You need to press the small red 'reset cmos' button (check the manual for clearer details):
