Asus P67 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 90

Quick question fellas, is clearing CMOS really necessary after flashing to a newer BIOS?

I've owned 2 ASUS motherboards so far in the last couple of years, and I've never ever had to clear CMOS for anything (BIOS flashing, hardware change, etc).

Thanks.

Highly doubt it.
Since Asus doesn't recommend or require it, I can't see why it would be necessary.
Of course this is the internet, so someone is bound to say that after clearing the CMOS they got another 2 fps from Crysis.

I did just to be safe. I cleared the jumper before first boot and removed the batter just to be extra sure. Went into BIOS flashed with 1053 then repeated the process. Everything has run smoothly since then, aside from me being a noob at building computers.

It only takes a few minutes extra and I figured why not.
When the boards first got to people's houses a lot of people were having issues firing the boards up for the first time etc. If you read through the first couple pages you can see why.

Bios 1204 is the best yet. Got it to boot at 5.4ghz but not prime/ibt stable. Brought it back to 5.3 and we're good to go!

If I unplug the SATA cable on the two HDDs, then all will boot with just the SSD (and Bios will show it as Vertex 2), and then I can do re-starts plugging in the HDDs. WTH?

That's weird, I had that problem on 2 prior bios versions.
I couldn't even plug in a storage drive or a flash drive without my boot options taking a dump on me.
The 1204 cleared that up for me.

I think I've seen this somewhere before, but after shutting off my computer for a while, then turning it back on, my memory LED would go red and not boot. I would have the use MemOK to have it boot up.

I set my memory to DDR-1600 manually because thats what it should be, but auto sets it to 1333mhz and MemOK changes it to 1333 to boot up which clears the red led.

Anyone know the solution? I'm on bios 1204.

Quote from Gary Key, ASUS Technical Marketing Manager

"I highly suggest a Clear CMOS event after loading the updated UEFI and then entering UEFI to reset your custom settings."

He don´t say why though but if he highly suggest it, I quess it can´t be a bad idea to do what he suggest.


I usually load default bios setup before I flash and the same after, then I set me custom OC setup, works every time.


Could be different now with the Uefi because it´s rather new and before they have sorted out the bugs.

Another problem with this board. I cannot install my X-Fi Fatality not Creative X-Fi in PCI-E slot. Windows does not detect the cards. I tested the cards in my other computer and they work fine.

By default the last PCI-e x16 slot is shared and runs @ x1, could it be that the X-Fi isn't happy with this?

Is there a way to manually enter the voltage and have it auto lowered like offset. For example I am rock solid at 4.5 with offset enabled and everything auto. Voltage fluctuates from 1.05 to 1.31 depending on load. i will like to go higher but when I keep on auto at 4.6 the vcore goes to 1.42 on offset. i want to be able to go higher and still having offset used and want to keep upper vcore at 1.35 but have it lower to 1.05 when not loaded. Thanks...
