I just copied the downloaded Maximus-IV-Extreme-Z-ASUS-XXXX.ROM file on a USB thumb drive, then rebooted to BIOS. Once in BIOS, go to the Tools tab... then ASUS EZ flash 2. It should detect and find the *.ROM file from your USB Thumb drive.

I'm Pushing this Level 10 GT case to the Max with the 240mm and 2 120mm Black Ice GTX Extreme Radiators and the 5 Delta fans (AFC1212D) @ 113.11 CFM, so far everything seems to fit.

Hi, I'm new to building computers and just recently finished my putting my build together. I'm using the Maximus IV Extreme (not the Z) which I had purhcased several months ago. I know I will have to update the bios just now sure which one. Have there been any issues with bios 2001? Should I use 1409 instead? Is there any drivers I would need to update as well? Is it recommended to updated the ORAM and Intel ME to something newer than whats included in the bios? Sorry for all the noob questions. Thanks

hi guys

ive been trying to ask a few simple things up on the asus rog forum but them guys are bloody usless.. they dont reply to NOTHING!!!

anyways hope someone could help here.......

so what is the latest bios version? 0403 or 0902? That is the only two up on asus website.. I've flashed mine to 0902 and think iv f'd up my system.. and the two that come up on suite II asus update are 0706 and 0210 (they dont actuly download, keeps on saying "downloading file, please wait....)

what version do i use? im trying to use it with SRT the intel smart respone technology.. got a 2700k with maximus iv extreme-z, gskill ripjaws x and intel 311 ssd cache drice srt with caviar black 2tb..

ive flashed mine to 0902 but not sure if this was a gd idea and i cant flash that now coz it keeps saying other files are outdated or somthing.. my sli dont show on pci slot 3 now, nothing shows uo on that slot since iv tried other cards in there... and cards work in other slots in sli but come as x8 pci and 16x pci via nf300 at same time.. im gussing its due to the flash since it was showing before..

oh and is there a way to force flash the bios, like regardless if its an older version, so i need to go from 0902 to 0403..

The 0902 is the latest according to ASUS website and i guess since the Z board came after the P67 board they haven't come as long in BIOS versions. They probably adapted the latest P67 BIOS to Z68 and therefore the Z68 board have lower BIOS numbers.

You can hit the BIOS switch on the motherboard and use the second BIOS chip that's on your board, i don't know what version it has, but it should be the same version as the one that was on the chip you flashed to 0902.

Don't really know about the SRT

EDIT: About your PCI-e slot that don't seems to work, you haven't accidentally flipped the PCI-e lane switch which can be found on the right hand top side of the motherboard? They're there for when you suspect a broken GPU and can't take the card, if you're using watercooling for example. Take a look at them, they should all be to the same way. I've switched mine once and didn't realize that when a gfx wouldn't work.

The lower selection is the BIOS switch and the top is the PCI-e lane switches.

I am using 1409 bios, you guys know of anything better? It hasn't given me problems, just wondering if there has been any more improvements.

I have a question for you all regarding just basic overclocking.

In AI Suite II, under TurboEvo I change from 3800Mhz to 4400Mhz but it never saves it anytime I reboot the system.

Is there a multiplier in the EFI Bios I can stick in there for 44x? I remember you could in the BIOS on my P8P67 Deluxe, but I can't find it on this board.
