OR should I use the bios update in dos? as in update bios when nothing except mb is turned on?
need a fast answer,thanks anyone.

You will have to boot it up and see what version is installed. You just need your CPU and memory installed to do this.

My board came ready with 1302 installed. Just go it on Friday.

I guess you will need a video card as well.

You will know what bios version you have in about 10 seconds or less so, but if it were me, I would be looking at that after I had it all properly installed in the case and ready to load the OS.

Just have the BIOS upgrade ready in case, if not get on with the OS installation.

Hi,

I am right now thinking about buying this motherbord (version with USB 3.1).

I saw some problems posted in this thread before.

Are some problems with whis motherboard still valid or all have been solved by ASUS ?
post #2456 of 4083
I FINALLY got this response from ASUS (that was the longest 48 hours ever!):

"Dear Jeannie,

This model is still being manufactured. It was released just this past year, and generally they will make them for 2-3 years depending on public demand. I wasn't able to find any units available from newegg, but Amazon appears to have a few. Most likely Newegg will get more shipments in soon. Thank you for your interest in this model!

Regards,

Robbie P

What a non-answer. They are going to have a tough time determining public demand if they don't have any to sell. Stock-outs are anathema in retail because you will never know how many sales you lost because of the stock-out.

So, not dead after all. Perhaps they are unsure of demand and are only making them in small quantities. Who knows?
post #2458 of 4083
I imagine the demand aspect being an unknown quantity. I would imagine they spend more time getting rampages off the line rather then these and they are likely only ordered in small quantities by the retailers due to high price. More so with broadwell coming up which may entail a motherboard refresh.

Having said that here in the uk we do seem to be okay and they are relatively easy to pick up. I have noticed the price seems to have increase by £60 over when I picked mine up about a month ago which is mental.

I have E5-1680v3 and it surely overclocks. All publicly available single-socket Xeons should too.

Now 7-9 months later, I swapped out the memory for G.Skill DDR4 3200MHz 32GB kit and low and behold I can OC to my hearts content. I have wanted to use the Asus AI Suite app for while but with the 2133MHz memory hampering efforts I had given up. Tonight I let the AI suite do it's thing with the new memory in place and voila 4.6GHz without any stability issues, it did reach 4.8GHz but crashed at that point as I think the memory maxed itself out.
This was achieved using AIO watercooling from Corsair H110i GTX as well as 7 fans (JetFlo's) to keep the temps down. I am impressed! Let the gaming fun begin rolleyes.gifbiggrin.gif

It would be of interest to see what kind of performance gain you can get from real applications with the 3200 vs. 2133 MHz RAM. According to some sources the gain is nothing to speak about but is it true? Also, by how much the 2133 RAM was hampering your overclocking efforts?? Hear this first time, maybe some parameters should be adjusted to get the 2133 working???
