Just for FX because they require more space on the bios chip, I think... But sure, why not, its free and it wont hurt.

I think your confusing people Mike, No the BIOS chip itself is not faulty, ASUS is saying that if the board comes with BIOS version before 0813 then it wont support a FX chip properly.Thus they will send you a new BIOS chip with a fully supported FX version on it, This is for people that dont have a spare pre-FX CPU laying around.

I think you misunderstood what ASUS was telling you.

I think you misunderstood what ASUS was telling you.

I dont think so because I told him that my system was running. Its not like I havent been using my system since BD came out. I have been running my system with BD since October. I told him this. I told him that I was having problems with CPU/NB LLC specifically which would only be the case if I had a bios that supported BD. I told him that I have 1003 bios installed and that everything is working fine. I only called to tell him about the CPU/NB LLC so they could fix it. Not to help get my system working. My system is working fine. I told him that since Ive updated to 1003 that the CPU/NB LLC is always set to extreme regardless of what you set it at.

Our conversation was very clear. He knew that my system was working fine and that i had updated bios. Unless he had no idea what he was talking about, then I understood perfectly. He didnt give me details why but it was very clear that he was saying that bios chips that were shipped out that had bios version 0705 or less were faulty chips for FX. If he misundertood me then he would have told me that I just needed to update my bios. This was not the case at all. It was very clear.

I got a question for you CHV owners with an FX chip. Is anyone tried using turbo core while overclocked? Like setting in bios core clock at 4.6Ghz and turbo at 5.0Ghz? I have tried using the turbo while overclocked and it doesnt work? It works at stock clocks but not while overclocked. Anyone got any ideas? I am able to get 5GHz on all 8 cores and 5.25Ghz on 4 cores and I would like to be able to set it up like this for best performance. Turbo is supposed to help with certain loads and I would like to take advantage of it. I have tried with last three latest bios'.

Any ideas?

Also now that I got turbo on through AOD it like always on. I was wondering if it set all to turbo but then I tried cinebench then it dropped down but its basically staying on turbo. With stock clock and turbo enabled in bios it doesnt turbo nearly this much at all. I never really liked AOD at all.

I would like to be able to get it to work through the bios. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I Got Big News For ASUS Crosshair V Formula Motherboard Owners
I have contacted ASUS pertaining to the CPU/NB LLC problem and it turns out that it is not the bios. It turn out the bios chip is faulty. He asked me when I got my board and I thought this was kind of weird so I asked him why he needed to know after I told him.
It turns out that Crosshair V Formula Motherboards that were purchased before a certain date have a faulty bios chip on them that is affected by the FX processors. He did not tell me any details but they are sending me a new bios chip that has been fixed for FX cpu's.
I am a little disappointed that I was not notified or contacted about this seeing that they know that I have this board with a 8120. He did not tell me the date of which the boards started being fitted with this fixed bios chip but if you have an FX processor with this board then I would recommend contacting them and requesting a fixed bios chip for the Bulldozer cpu. Hell, I would even do it if I didnt have a FX cpu. He did say that the boards that were sent out before a certain time had a faulty bios chip that was affected by the FX chips. Not exactly, but something right along those lines. If you have this board I would recommend calling them and asking about this cause you might not be getting the most performance out of your board and chip because of this. He did specify that it is with the Bulldozer chip but he did not exclude and chips. So I would call and find out if your board is eligible for a new bios chip. I purchased my board in october. I had to tell him that and the serial number to, i guess, see if my board was one of the ones sent out with a faulty bios chip. It turns out that it is and he said the new bios chip fixed for the FX chips will be delivered to me within a week. Nice customer service I might add. I dont know how or if this is going to increase performance or stability or anything like that and I will be sure to let you guys know once I install it.
So, IMO if you have a Crosshair V Formula mobo, then I recommend that you call ASUS (U.S. Toll Free - 1-812-282-2787) and find out if your board needs a new bios chip.
I am glad that I found this out. I dont know if the faulty one was damaging anything or decreasing the performance of my chip or affecting stability or what but a faulty bios chip needs to be replaced.
OP, I think you should post this on the first thread for other Crosshair V owners to see.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to ask.
Hope I could help you guys and I will notify everyone, once I install my the new bios chip, if there are any performance or stability changes with it.

Thanks ,already order mine ,it should be at my mobo at the end of the next week. thumb.gif

@mikezachlowe2004

Thanks for your time to explain.

But this can´t be only a FX phenomena because I had the same phenomena with my 1090T with both 0903 and 1003 bios.

For sure the CPU/NB voltage overshoot by a fair amout but there is a different with different CPU/NB LLC settings, not by much but there is.

I measure the following from the readouts points in the "ProbeIt" area with my DMM at different CPU/NB LLC settings.


Auto
Set in bios : 1,275
Idle : 1,290
Load : 1,315

Regular
Set in bios : 1,275
Idle : 1,290
Load : 1,315

High
Set in bios : 1,275
Idle : 1,295
Load : 1,320

Extreme
Set in bios : 1,275
Idle : 1,295
Load : 1,325

I can´t imagine that the voltage overshoot can be cured by switch to a new bios chip.

We have to wait and see when you get the new chip if it gets better or if they have done a change with the new 1102 bios version.

Cheers


Edit: I have also tried to get the turbo to work in OC mode but I haven´t fully got the grip on how it works, I have to fiddle some more with different settings, one thing I have notice is that the turbo works different before and after those schedule fixes.
