Does not work on my system

Must one do something else than setting this in BIOS? I meen in WIndows? Does it have something to do with powersaving mode in Windows?

Maybe restore CMOS on the button?

Yeah and this was released just on the day I started overclock testing and I didn't know until after I was stress testing. I think I'll pass on this. Version 1802 is working fine for me and version 1903 fixes a an issue with a feature I don't even use.

Hi all!

The problem is solved, i made some Google searches and found one that told the guy who had exact the same problem to turn off Windows fastboot mode and now it works fine.

Thanks all!

Not sure if it is BIOS-related, but I was experiencing some random crashes. Not sure what caused them, but after setting FSB and PCI-e frequencies and CPU ratio manually and disabling Turbo Core it passed 10 minutes of Small FFT's on Prime95, will update if crashes again. Please report if you have similar issues.

Edit: nvm thatwas a wonky cpu fan issue biggrin.gif
