post #1071 of 2086
Quick question to all current owners:

While the system if powered down I get the ROG Symbol and the RESET/START Motherboard buttons lit up, is this right?

If so, is there any way to ensure they do not remain lit while the system is powered down?

You bet man! In the BIOS there is options to enable/disable the onboard LED's.
Hope that helps!



Anybody got an answer to my question on the page before this?

Hey guys, trying to get mine up and running. I can't seem to get it to connect to a network for anything, the drivers are all installed but I still get uninstalled items under the network tab on device manager, IPv6 x2 and it won't detect anything plugged in to the ports. Anyone have a suggestion?

Got my board as soon as the B3 boards starter hiting the shelves, and i like the board the more i use it. Only thing i really miss is firewire, but it was solved with a pci-e card. Have not maxed my 2600k yet, but 4.8ghz stable and 5ghz into windows with just over 1.4v makes me hoping for a good oc when i get my watercooling.

EDIT: if i enter my oc result to the sheet now, can i change it later when i start oc with wc?

You DO have it enabled in the BIOS?
BIOS>Advanced>Onboard Devices Configuration.
Every time I use Auto-Tuning all of these settings are disabled and have to be re-enabled. LAN, Audio, etc.

I'm having troubles running Memtest86+ from a USB stick. Asus is telling me that it is because of the UEFI Bios. 4X4Gb 1600Mhz. get the "unexpected interrupt halting". Is it my board or is everybody having the same thing?

What's up guys, I took a stab at ASUS's auto tuning software and managed to get no where further than a couple of blue screens and two - three hours of wasted time and effort.

I knew taking the easy way out was going to hurt me in the end, I'm going to try and manually overclock my 2600K. Obviously no one is going to figure it all out for me but can someone link me to some useful guides for this particular motherboard (I have the Extreme-Z but I believe the BIOS functions and what not are pretty much the same).

I have 16GB of RAM and I understand that this hinders my overclock but for those of you with 16GB out there, what type of numbers are you getting?

4.8GHz is my goal, I'll settle for 4.6GHz but I really don't want anything lower than 4.5GHz.

I'd appreciate any help!

hey bro, if you only want 4.8 just set your voltage to 1.4v, mp to 48 and thats it for the beginning. Boot in to windows and run intel burn test, 20 maximum memory runs. If it passes that then its prime95 blend time(do at least 4h) if it crashes with 124 or 101 bsod then up the voltage to 1.415 (unless you dont want to go that high) or lower your mp by 1 to 47 and repeat. Once you know at what mp your system is stable at 1.4 you can start fine tunning from there. Feel free to shoot me a pm if your gone have any questions.

Alright I'll be sure to try that, if I do get 4.8GHz how do I fine tune? Or a better question is what is there left to fine tune and for what purpose?

I just want to know everything before I start overclocking!

EDIT: Also, what are the safe - dangerous voltages when overclocking with the 2600K? I have a RX360 and an RX480 radiator for cooling. I have a 2600K and a GTX 580 in my loop, the GTX 580 is at stock clocks.

I have some breathing room so lay them voltages on me!
