what, again? ah no, 1402 is the last one.

Who here is thinking about getting the refresh-Haswell processors?
post #1802 of 2766
I probably will If they release the (4790k), and IF its actually compatible with the current z87 motherboards. But I've read recently in a different thread that z87 motherboards might/will not be compatible with the the haswell refresh cpus which would suck, not in the mood spending extra 150-200 for a new motherboard. If that's the case im sticking with the 4770k.

Was thinking maybe the newer refresh cpu's would overclock slightly better.

Asus's newer bioses already support Haswell Refresh. But the newer bioses are crap.

I'm definitely going for the NEW processor when it comes out..top of the bloody line too...I'm sick of the crappy performance with the i7 4770K and Hero combo...I want more grunt. I'm an ARMA player and it needs CPU POWER, so I'm in all the way up to my neck with the next update. Might not ne a Hero board match up either

Done deal no questions asked.

Yup, this board has been a royal PITA to get stable with regard to S3.

Ive had:

-no ip
-frozen time
-CPU clocks reduced to stock
-frozen screen
-blank screen
-reboot

What makes this difficult is that I can be stable for weeks, then BAM!

I've gone ahead and lowered my chip and ram speeds to see if it's OC related. Who knows.

Edit: Awesome...new issue. Powered on from sleep, everything was ok browsing around for about 20 minutes, then my mouse cursor lags a few times...and FREEZE. Had to reboot. I am @ 4.2 Ghz right now and 1.3 V. I guess it's time to return EVERYTHING to stock and see what's what. It's a little ridiculous as I've RMA'd both the CPU and the board already. #pisssssed

I'm pretty sure that's Bohemia's 'fault'. If I run it on the highest setting, I get only a max of 30fps, and much lower with high intensity gameplay frown.gif
While I never had that issue with Arma 2 or Skyrim (both with mods)

I'll wait what the reviews say about the refresh-Haswell, or I might go to Socket 2011 after all..
post #1807 of 2766
Well...this is odd...

I went ahead and upgraded to the 1402 BIOS, powered down, flipped the PSU off, jumpered the CMOS, removed the battery, waited a minute, turned it on, turned it off (but kept the power on to reset the MEI?? for the frozen clock issue), jumpered the CMOS, and turned it on.

After I flashed to the latest BIOS I think the PC rebooted about 6 times before it finally came on. When I jumpered the CMOS, both times, it rebooted ONCE.

I went ahead and set the time, disabled a couple things like audio and sata ports, but left everything stock. Here's my observations so far.

-Windows 8 must be doing a better job w/ throttling the CPU speed up as Windows 7 felt noticeably slower w/ C1E/EIST enabled. It would be a 2 second difference when loading some web pages. W8 is within a half a second and more than tolerable for the extra 25 watts it saves me.

-ODDLY, Windows feels more responsive?!

-I was able to go into and out of sleep mode many times and very quickly wo/ issue.

So new BIOS or something doesn't like being clocked...

I'm getting one of these boards and a 4770k in a few days.

To the guy who upgraded from an FX-8320:

Did you have any issues with Windows after installing the new board and cpu? Did you have to do a fresh install?

When I upgraded from a different ASUS board to my Crosshair V and put in a new processor, Windows 7 automatically installed new drivers for the board and cpu. Upgrading from a 1090T to a FX-8350 it did the same thing.

Just hoping the process is seamless because I really don't want to reinstall my OS. It takes me days of downloading and configuring all my programs etc.

So you want to put a bugatti engine in a ferrari...? You have to reinstall OS. AMD and Intel are both very different.

I did upgrade from a Crosshair V formula to a Maximus 6 Hero on the same windows 7, i even played some bf4 with it and had no issue, but i decided to do a fresh install for overclocking
