Here is a good write up on power phase. http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...planation.html

If I am correct with the T.Probe function enabled in the bios, T.Probe detects and equalizes the temperature of vCore power components.

New b3 boards have 1305 installed on them right out of the box. It is also on the ASUS page as an official Bios.


I went from 1053 with my old board to 1305 with my new B3 board.

From what I have noticed with 1305, AI Suite is still buggy as hell. Anything done from AI Suite will not stick. All changes must be done from the BIOS. What I have noticed with this is, if I changed overclocks inside my OS, and run prime 95 or IBT they stick fine. But when I go into the BIOS and apply the same settings I get BSOD's all day trying to boot into my OS. I'm not sure if that is motherboard related or not, but I didnt have any of these issues with my old board and 1053 BIOS. Also, the auto overclock or OC tuner are completely buggy. If you do that, your pc will get stuck in an endless boot loop.

Here are the change logs for each BIOS.

1305
1. Enable the display of Intel PCH revision BIOS Setup Screen for the ease of recoginization for B3 stepping chipset.
2. Enable support for ROG BIOS Print
3. Enhance SAS card compatibility
4. Enhance auto rule for better performance.
5. Support new version AI-SuiteII(must work with new AI-SuiteII)
6. Enable support for onboard Bluetooth disable capability.
7. Enable support of "Wait For 'F1' If Error" option to allow user to ignore BIOS warnings during POST

1204
1. Reduce boot time if clear RTC.

the higher phase count on P67 will only allow you to sustain longer high overclock
as for TProbe ..maintains the VRM thermal balance

1305 ..it contains new firmware and B3 stepping compatibility,if you still have B2 and don't use sleep mode ..no need to

Maybe im just really dumb but I am missing any clear CMOS post, I see in the FAQ it says there is a pictorial tutorial to clear it on the first post but I don't see it.

And I'm getting "No Phsycial Disk" which I assume is differnt than "Cannot detect a hard drive"

FIX #1

Clear RTC RAM procedure

1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5–10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.



3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4. Hold down the "Del" key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data.

*If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After the CMOS clearance, reinstall the battery.

First, I would like to stress the importance of flashing the BIOS to the latest BIOS revision as listed on our support website, http://support.asus.com/download. You can access the ASUS EZ Flash tool from within the UEFI (advanced options, tools) to flash the BIOS from any removable device such as a USB flash drive.

From time to time we needed to implement full resets in order to maintain stability due to the architecture of the Sandy Bridge platform. For instance, the system may require one full reset when the PCH power has been cut during S5 power state. To fix the most common additional reset (double POST when powering on from off state), enter UEFI BIOS -> go to ‘Advanced’ tab -> go down to ‘APM’, press Enter -> enable the “Power on by PCIe.” function. Then press F10 to save & exit. After save & exit, let the system boot into Windows or other OS, then perform a proper shutdown: Start button -> Shut down. You will no longer have the double POST. We will fix this in an upcoming BIOS release.

For the "no physical disk". What does your boot order look like?

I think your message has to do with boot order. By default the motherboard will try and boot from the DVD drive. After you install your OS, you need to make your HDD or SSD your main boot drive and disable the dvd rom, that way the motherboard / bios won't try and boot from a disk. I may have read your first post wrong. I apologize.

No worries, I was having cold boot issues where it would reset 2 or 3 times and I used fix #2 by switching to PCIE to fix it now it boots up on the first try. I will try switching the boot order and see if that works.

As for the CMOS as I was referring to the Deluxe mother board which has the nifty little clear cmos button on on the back plate. I was just curious if you were suppose to power down the computer then hold the button down for a bit to clear it and if it did the same as moving the jumpers.

thanks again and sorry for the confusion!

I would turn the power switch off, then remove the chord itself and wait a few minutes. I have a green LED on my board I would turn off power and remove chord to PSU and wait for that LED to turn off before fooling around with my motherboard.

Thank you gentlemen. so far I've been very stable at 4.5ghz now for 48 hours, no problems at all. and the chip isn't even peaking 38c on load. I'm extremely happy with this chip and motherboard. This Deluxe board is worth the extra money it cost for it, the features truly are nice.

Those are some good temps. What stress test you running and what are your ambient temps?
