ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread - Page 328

post #3271 of 5738
Well thank you sir wink.gif i'm one step further..

I can now get to the American Megatrends screen, still on dd qcode with the option to press f1, which does nothing, and i'm told to enter setup to recover bios setting..? And yeah i get to post but not to bios.. There's another error message concerning CPU Fan, i turned it off at my very first setup because i'm using a corsair water-cooling system, but that was from within the bios.. It's indicating the bios version 1302.. How am i supposed to enter setup here, sorry for the noob questions..

Congrats! Now try flashing again? Try different keyboard or different USB ports?

The fan error is likely due to the cleared CMOS. Bios is expecting a fan again. This also should be the reason for the need to "recover" the bios settings: CMOS is reset and you need to save the Bios once. So you have to get your keyboard working. Got another one?

Doesn't matter, tried a different keyboard (wireless) pressed f1 got to bios, f5 reloaded defaults, turned cpu fan monitor and qfan control off, set m2 samsung second in boot order (after windows mbr i think - because per default intels pci ssd was set second) booted into windows as if nothing ever happened, thanks a lot to @pegnose

Excellent! Got that tip from an ASUS supporter once. If you feel like it... you could click that Rep button. smile.gif

Or... is it just single thread performance? Just like *one* instance of the desktop version? Just came to me.

HCI memtest support says it is (single thread).

Just a quick note about 1402 Bios on the Maximus.

I have been plaiying with my OC a bit and I found out I have been able to drop down to LLC4 from 5 with only 1 click up on my voltage. (to 1.375)

So now instead of spiking to 1.408 at load I am now at 1.376v under heavy load (occasional 1.392).

Temps have come down 5c at max load and I have even tested 6 hours of prime 28.7 blend, which is something I never really use for stability just to make sure.

78c Max temp with 8k and 12k FFT.

I could not do this at this voltage before and the only thing I have changed is the BIOS.

At 4.7ghz.

Does anyone know how to disable the Asus Bios update notification? I don't see it in startup or programs & files, and it's reminder is a little irritating as I don't plan on updating my Bios from what I've got now. Thanks!
