Thinking of alternative solutions... the Windows 8.1 to 8.0 downgrade did it for me =/

Thank you for all those who gave their assistance.

After spending another hour running through all the different usb configuration settings, this is what finally worked.
  • legacy usb support enabled,
  • intel xhci mode disable
  • ehci hand off disable
  • usb full initialiazation

It did not matter whether or not i used usb3 or usb2, or the usb flashback bios port.

Finally, my machine is running smile.gifsmile.gif

and if i could get added to the official rog member list for the impact that would be awesome. here is my verification link : http://valid.x86.fr/dxlen8

Uh oh, I didn't even think about the audio headers, haha. Oh well, long cable or wireless headphones it is!

Hi,

New to these forums so please bare with me.

Specs

Intel i5 4670K @ 3.8Ghz
Corsair H80i
Asus Maximus Impact VI
Corsair Vengeance 16Gb 2 x 8gb 1866Mhz
GTX 770 2Gb
Samsung 840 Evo 120 & 250 Gb


I had a new system built for me which included the Asus Maximus VI Impact. The system arrived and all I had to do was install windows, the system worked great for a few weeks. Then one day, I had recorded some gameplay footage from Titanfall using the shadowplay feature. I was editing the footage in Windows Movie Maker and all of a sudden the system locked up, keyboard would not work, mouse locked up. The only way I could get it to respond was to do a hard restart.

It doesn't seem to be just movie maker, it can lock up when watch youtube videos, general browsing of the internet using various browsers. The odd thing is, is that the freezing doesn't occur when playing games. I can play titanfall for three hours and the system does not miss a beat.

I tried doing a fresh install of windows 7 on the 120gb ssd and still froze, fresh install of windows 7 on the 250gb ssd, still froze. So I purchased Windows 8.1 and installed this onto the system and still same thing it froze. The PC passes all stress tests, Memtest, AIDA, Graphics card has been stressed too. I have tried rolling back drivers of the graphics card and still freezes.

All drivers are upto date in device manager, when the freeze occurs there is no BSOD and when I restart the system and go to Event Viewer there is nothing that stands out at the point the computer froze. The memory has been changed twice and cpu has been changed once.

So I can only come to the conclusion that it's either the motherboard or PSU. This problem is driving me crazy!

Has anyone else experienced this problem before with a Maximus VI Impact? Just trying to rule out the motherboard before I have to RMA it.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

What is your PSU? I've seen a similar problem with an other board. And the problem was the PSU.

The PSU I have is Corsair Builder Series CX 600W V2 '80 Plus Bronze' Power Supply

Thanks

Hello there,

Just finished my 250D build (4770k) using this mamaboard. I didn t istall any disk drive so I will try to install my OS using a bootbale usb.

My first effort though was not succesful. I tried to install Windows Xp using a bootbale external disk drive without updating BIOS drives but couldn t do it. It just don t give me the option to boot from the drive although it recognises it.

Today I created a bootbale WIn8 usb drive which I will try to use when I get back home.

Do I need to update bio before I install the os?

I downloaded ''MAXIMUS VI IMPACT BIOS 1402'' now so I can update BIOS via ASUS EZ Flash 2 method. Will I need to put the whole zip file in the usb or just the ''cap'' file that is included?


Please advise.

Also do u have an idea why it didn t work with XP?

First of all, this motherboard does NOT support windows XP last I checked, there are only drivers for windows 7 & 8, with 7 having the least issues in my experience versus 8.0 & 8.1

And xp has always given me issues when trying to load from a USB thumb drive, but xp is also EOL and is no longer supported by MS, so no updates and no safety anymore.

You shouldn't have any issues loading 8 from flash drive if you created the flash drive properly.

What is everyone using to monitor voltages if you're using offset?

To add to what Jimhans1 wrote. Make sure to use the USB 2 not the USB 3 cause the installations don't have the usb 3 drivers only the usb 2.

Cheers
