Crosshair IV question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I have a crosshair IV mobo (system below), and it runs great. Amazing in fact.

However, was just wondering from all of you other CH4 board owners out there one thing...is it slow to post? When I restart my computer, it takes 6-10 seconds to make the post beep sound (as well as when I cold boot). Once that happens, its fine. During this 6-10 seconds, the video card fan spins very fast lol. Was just wondering if that's how the board is, or what. I contacted ASUS and they said "There is nothing wrong with your board, this is normal for your configuration". Not sure what that means; I consider my specs pretty decent.

If you are running RAID it takes time to recognize it. They are aware of it and are working on it. They have been pretty good with BIOS updates.

Thats another thing; Are there any crosshair iv bios updates? I don't see them listed under the downloads for the crosshair iv on the asus website!!

EDIT: Turns out it's only non existent if I use the canadian asus website...fail.

0801 is the latest official. Here: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx

There's a beta BIOS 09xx roll through this thread I think the link is there.
