Sorry guys didn't get it done.

My former CPU fan in now zip tied in my 5 1/4" bay as an intake. Didn't feal like cutting the zip ties already and the cable wouldn't reach.

Maybe the -E is different in this regard to the BIOS profiles. I haven't messed with it a bunch. But to me it looked like it would only save 1 OC profile in CMOS. To save multiple profiles it looked like you would have to burn them to a flash drive. At first I thought it would work like you described but then on a little inspection it was my conclusion anyway that the OC profiles is meant to be used with flash drive. As I said though I haven't messed with it a bunch and could be wrong. There is a Save To [.....] and Load From [.....] option in the menu. Double check what the options are.

On a similar note this goes hand in hand with the Crash Free Bios. I misunderstood how this was supposed to work and assumed it wasn't working at all. Apparently if you actually read over the manual a 4th time, ; it seems that if you save OC profiles to a DVD or Flash drive there isn't any reason to clear CMOS on a failed overclock. I can see this getting put to use soon since I tend to clear CMOS alot. Everybody probably already knew that but me though huh.

Good Luck ! to Lawrencendlw

@kzinti1, I'd be more concerned about loosing easy access to the power and reset buttons. Probably depends on the card but eyeballing my 5850 it looks like as long as the cables were all nice and neat I shouldn't have too much problem with them getting in the way of running in the 3rd slot. Card just sticks out far enough from the board that it doesn't look like it would be a problem. Shoot you have the case to do it without any modding so just try it out and let us know.

Any thread members care to help me pick out an 1156 board. I'm going to keep my sig rig as my workhorse and build a system to abuse. Maybe abuse isn't the correct word but definately planning on pushing it a bit. http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...-my-760-a.html

It is the same in the -E vs the Premium, I have seen both BIOS screens.
You may be right, it may be designed for the O.C. Profiles to only be saved to a flash drive, but it gives every appearance that it is saving them to an area in CMOS. You can give them a name, and the name appears in the list, but there is nothing saved in the profile.

Does anyone know for sure whether the O.C. Profiles are now intended for saving to a flash drive only?
post #3533 of 6382
I'm not sure about the -E revision but on my Premium I can save OC Profiles in the BIOS and then load from them whenever. There is also an option to save them to the external flash drive and HDD and cd or DVD which you could use to unbrick your motherboard and also to share them with other people to try out. In fact because this feature is available, I'm surprised that there isn't a bunch of profiles circulating this site for people to try out. Hint Hint guys lol...

I have the Premium like you do, and what you can do is what I thought I could do (and could do with previous ASUS boards I had).

Are you using 0904 or 1002 BIOS?

If it is not saving the OC profiles in the CMOS when you tell it to, then there may be something wrong with the BIOS chip... I have the -E and never had issues saving to any of the 8 slots that are available.

Thanks, sizzle. I have already tried. No go. There were 2 versions of these cards. Maybe yours is the other one. Mine are the GUX versions.
I guess one of my cards is going to e-bay. I'd rather sell it than cook it.

It has worked for every version of BIOS that I have had on my board. It worked before I flashed from 0904 to 1002 and it still works with 1002 so I would have to agree with cyclone3d that you probably have a bad BIOS chip. Call Asus and RMA or if the board is really new then send it back to the retailer you bought it from first because Asus will only send you a refurbished board and I have had a ton of problems with them on it. If I get my new board and it's messed up then Asus WILL be giving me a Rampage III Extreme in stead because that would mean that I have had 3 bad P6X58D Premium motherboards (My original, the first one they sent me when I RMA'd my original, and the second one that they sent me when I RMA's the RMA replacement board)... the Asus rep told me that if I receive 2 bad boards as replacements to my original board then my case gets escalated and they basically do anything that they can to make me happy and I won't settle for anything less than a Rampage III Extreme and a new one at that, not a refurbished one without any accessories or anything because I would be in the same boat then.

How about a quick walk threw on saving the profiles. At least in my case I'll say user error is probably more likely than a bad bios chip.

I have 5% left on a 2686 then I'll go play around with it.

I know this should be Asus P6T thread but the problem is i just replaced P6X58D with P6T. P6X58D works fine but P6T at first booted fine also then comes the Error 0xc00000e9 when installing win7 on SSD. At first i didnt know but after some googling, the problem seem to be dvd drive. Also had problem of "Chassis Intruded! Fatal error... system halted"

But now it doesnt boot at all, maybe i will have to put MB back into the case?
