No, nor is 1003. It came from the same source. I posted links to the original page HERE.

I tell you what ! I quickly went with 3.8 G and pushed my ram to 1250 meg and it posted AND booted !
Ran a quick session of 3DMark 06 and bsod`d. Thats ok, I see potential here ! This was all quick changes just to see what it would do.
Maximus never went over 1203 on the Ram or 3.65 with the cpu !

Any other benchmarks you can do? If you have a comparison with old benchmarks at same speeds it would be great as well
Vcore gone up from 1.392 to 1.450? Real or bios? that sounds like plenty more though.
Keeping in mind that its still a very new bios for the Rampage, it can only get better!

Hey do any of you have trouble with your keyboard on the Formula in BIOS? My Razer Tarantula is detected as a hub instead of a keyboard and can't be used to enter BIOS. USB Legacy support is on and I have 0907 BIOS. Any help would be appreciated!

Saw this in your other thread,could not help there,cannot help here...sorry.

The one thing I will say about my MAXIMUS-RAMPAGE hybrid is that it loves voltages !!
I saw my cpu V was running ar 1.45 V at 3.6G on auto..Im not happy with that as I have run 1.387V at 3.6 G before and stable.
Sooo,into bios and I drop it down and boot/stress...Im now on 1.365 Volts with a 1 hour prime95 stress with no Bsod.!
Pretty good going I reckon..Things like NB and SB ,cpl V and ram thrive on Voltages..
Ive also played with the CPU UP setting and found incredible results !
I selected the QX9570 and went for auto up..The settings came out at 3G and 800meg ram with tight timings ! Multi ran 9 and I decided to set the speed up to 400 x 9 again..
This was still on 4.4.5.15 timings at 800megs. Things worked like a charm !
If this was good,more can only be better,right ??
RIGHT !! Went for 1203 meg ram o.c. and left the timings where they were..posted and booted,but Vista would not go further than the Logo stage..
Loosened timings to 5.5.5.15 and bingo !! Stable for an hour on prime95..!

The downside to the RAMPAGE bios is that HWMonitor and CPUz dont display all the settings ! Especially CPUz..no multi,no ram data,no timings...this is a real bummer for me ..
Im sure future bios upgrades might sort this out..

Oh,and 3DMark 06 ?
I dropped 50 odd points here..strange cozz I find if you drop or gain its more like 200 odd points either way..
Ill play some more...btw,my score was 13789..second best yet..stock gpu still..

Am I sorry that I fashed this bios yet ! NO WAY !! It has done stuff tthat FORMULA could never have allowed or was capable of.

Low and behold !!!
I open CPUz this morning and Viola !!!! All the info is displayed and correctly so !!
It must have required drivers that only installed after a complete shutdown and reboot !

CORE TEMP 0.9 still sees my Q6600 as a Xeon Intel 2.40G(clovertown)..The important ones see things correctly though.

Also with the low voltages the core temps have dropped by possibly 7 to 9 deg C..all round good stuff I reckon !
So far I have no negative things about MAXIMUS-RAMPAGE !!

REP+ BigKriss, thanks for testing these waters for us. Is it true flashing to Rampage is a one-way street?

All: BIOS revision 1004 is now added to the ASUS master FTP, mysteriously without any reference to it being a beta:

MASTER FTP LINK

However, it remains unposted to the downloads page.

Guys i have been out of the overclocking loop for a couple of years now. But i have just invested in a new comp and i bought the maximus. damn Asus have sorted out there bios options from way back when lol. I bought the ocz ram to give me more ocing headroom and to see what i could gett the qx upto .. I seem to struggle to get above 4.0 ghz . so i just upped the multi and have a stable clock at 3.6 ....Is there anything i can do to stabilize the mobo because im sure thats what is holding me back...M
