I don't even think thats necessary honestly


and it says in OP "Motherboard Asus Maximus VI Formula."
so you just hold the circle arrow button on the usbheaders area of the mobo in for 5-10seconds(thats how my rive does it atleast)

if that doesn't work you can try to reseat the ram or/and cpu if you took those out during installation

Which button do you mean exactly ?
The only button with a circle arrow I find is on the Rear I/O panel they call it clear CMOS which as i understand resets the mobo back to factory settings.
But on the Mobo i find only "START" and "RESET* no circle arrow
What exactly does this button do ? Will I have to download the Bios again

the one on the rear I/O panel

it sets the motherboards bios back to stock settings.

My current Asus M5A99x EVO R2 has a bios reflash button (That will reflash the bios from a USB stick), but nothing to do a bios reset.

What motherboard and what button?
OP is on a brand new maximus

basically every mobo that's released these days has a button on the rear I/O shield

you just hold it down for 5seconds and it resets you bios to stock settings

takes 5 seconds on my rive

5 seconds on my asrock z87m ocf



if you unplug the psu how will the bios reset button work even?

Just like the old style I would think, but a button in stead of crossing circuit like hhd.

So you don't have to take out the battery, unplug the psu, and hold the power button on the tower, and Then hit reset button? All you need to do is hit reset?

Just hold the rear reset button for a few seconds and you are set

Thanks all the other answers were a bit confusing.
I have just one question. I have a USB stick with the latest Bios files download ,formatted and ready to go.
I did this before I installed the water cooling loop and made my first Pre Test of my components, All was working then and I was in the Bios.
I keep the files nothing else on the Stick so it would be ready to go. So what would be better USB BIOS Flashback or clearing the CMOS ?

Though the methods are different the result should be the same.
A bios reset set all the settings in your existing bios to their defaults.
A bios flasback install a new bios, again, with all the settings at their defaults.

Since you know you have a good bios on the flash drive, I'd use that.
Be sure to wait for the correct series of LED flashes that indicate the flash was successful. It can take 3-5 minutes to complete.

Hi, I have now tried doing a USB Bios Flashback the Flashback seems to work, Rog connect and USB both flashing , and at the end of the process it tried to start my system, but again it cuts out after 10 seconds, So I guess it's not the problem of the Bios, ?

Can someone tell me the exact order from Plug in to the wall socket through to start up.
The reason I am asking my system seems to bypass stand by.
Here is what I have noticed : I Plug in from PSU to wall socket ( with the switch on the PSU switch off ), using the PSU switch, to switch on, it
jumps straight into startup , the only way I can get a standby is by plugging in the Keyboard ? and then hitting the PSU switch to start,
both ways in fires up for 10 seconds and then cuts out.
But I have never touched nor do I have time to hit the START button on the Motherboard

Should it not first go to standby when I turn on the PSU switch, and then normally hit the START button on the MOBO or front panel
Start Switch to fire up ?
