Asus M5A99X Evo r2.0 Sleep issue.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'll keep it simple...

New board as old MSI 870A-G54 died after 3 years.

I've a 1055t running on this board with W7 x64.

Not exactly thrilled as with same settings as old mobo, I am 10% slower on WinRAR benchmark.

Anyway, mobo performs as expected with default BIOS settings and hybrid sleep enabled in W7-sleeps with flashing power light and no fans, immediately resumes upon key press.

When I OC board past Clock speed of 260 it runs as usual but sleep works with CPU and chassis fans still active and only a reset/power cycle wakes it-W7 shows Resuming Windows message as from hibernation.

Temps are all under control and no other settings other than boosting CPU speed and underclocking RAM are touched...

A puzzler, any suggestions?

BTW I left out ALL specifics as they probably aren't required just yet???

I'm running BIOS 2201 so will maybe have to hunt down 2301 and see what like.

It doesn't appear on the UK site (yet) so probably need to check the USA or Chinese sites.

Maybe becose of high fsb, i use only 235 mhz.
You can try 1708 version, after this version i get freeze after sleep. And i must unplug the sistem from power to get up again.

All things being equal I would say yes the OC is responsible for the glitch but why exactly is the puzzler.

I am probably going to have to disable Hybrid Sleep in W7 x64 and just use Hibernation as I am not backing down on the performance, this was part of the reason I bought the board.

Strange as my previous board MSI 870a-g54 had the same issue but previous Gigabyte board was fine...

FYI

I have HWmonitor running out of curiosity and it seems the CPU is running round in circles going nowhere when Windows is hybrid sleeping as the temps recorded are in the mid 50s C.

Idle temps on Windows desktop are high 30s in 20 C ambient. Clearly something going on, I'm glad fans are still on.

Unless someone can shed some light on this I'm disabling Hybrid Sleep and just using the Hibernate feature, slow but at least it works.

Nice to know I'm not alone with this issue.

For now I have disabled Hybrid Sleep in Windows and am just using Hibernate instead.

I'll maybe get around to trying an older BIOS version, seems strange going backwards to fix an issue.
