Np! I originally came from x58 and this video helped me immensely.

P55 here and this BIOS looks like an explosion of farts! Honestly, the Tweaker's Paradise section looks like a bunch of made up terms that do nothing.

So far I am stable @ 4.2Ghz, but it needs 1.3V. 1.25V will occasionally crash BF4 or fail to resume from sleep.

Anyone pairing this motherboard with the Haswell i7-4771 CPU? If so, are they playing nicely together?

I know I have a non-K CPU (i7-4771), but I am seriously considering this board for it's supposedly great on-board sound and beautiful looks. That red & black color scheme would look nice in my case. Plus, this board is only about $40 more than the ASUS Z87- Plus I have been looking at. I know functionality is more important than looks, but damn, the Z87-Plus is one ugly board! Still, I haven't ruled it out, yet.

By the way, isn't this board a little more "power hungry" than most other boards? I read an early review on this board that mentioned this and stated that a future BIOS update may fix this. Do we know if this has been fixed?

Onboard sound with current drivers is a nightmare...

Was just reading about others having the same issue in the Negative reviews on Newegg. Apparently, this must be a common problem with this board. This is why I try and research my components as much as possible. Still, I guess we're taking a gamble every time we buy something, but considering how expensive this motherboard is, this is inexcusable.

Agreed. You can probably look at a few of my earlier posts to see the nightmare and headaches I had with it... Went back to my Sounblaster Zx after a few days of fussing with the onboard...

-sigh- maybe one day I'll try it again and see...

Any who on another note...

Did you guys check this out?

Never heard of them, but the 2 was apparently a cooling beast... wondering If I should swap the H100i out for this guy and retry my OC *Not loving the H100i as I'd hopped I would... *

EDIT:

I got so fed up with the onboard audio blasting @ 100% volume each boot, and the weird windows sound distortions that I uninstalled the driver and shut down to pop in my old Sound Blaster Z card... however for one reason or another my system now no longer powers on!!!

I have the power and reset lights on the board lit, and I've tried the jumper method to clear the bios... but it doesn't power. How can this be and what do you recommend I try to fix?!

Very bizarre issue...

EDIT 2:

Got it working again after playing with the jumper for about 5 straight minutes... strange...

re-installing my soundblaster now... Shame I couldn't get the onboard working properly... Maybe the next driver will be better.

Yes...

I believe ASUS is drunk. Their BIOS's are getting worse and worse... When my friend gets back from vacation and lets me borrow a case, I'll be "downgrading" to the 804 one. That was by far the best BIOS I used.

Maybe I should give the downgrade a shot too... Who knows maybe I'll even hit 4.6 lol
