The problem was with 0705 or earlier Bios. I called ASUS about this about 3 months ago. The tech wanted me to do a bunch of troubleshooting but I stopped him dead in his tracks. Told him that the problem had been well documented and that I wanted a new bios chip. He agreed without further discussion and I received it 2 days later. popped the old one out and the new one in. Took about 5 seconds. This problem is documented extensively in the ROG Crosshair V forum. ASUS is aware of it but depending on the tech you talk to they will argue against it if you don't stand firm.

My understanding is the chip was faulty, so updating would not fix it. The last 4 digits on the sticker next to the 24pin connector indicated the bios version.

well the person who wants to sell the board to me says it has bios 0404 which is like the first so if i bought it from him since asus would give me a hassle without proof of purchase i guess i wont buy it from him

you can order a new chip from asus for about $15
