[Official] Asus Maximus IV Extreme Owners Club - Page 169

post #1681 of 2016
Need someone to help me out here. I recently bought a brand new Extreme-Z version of this board but haven't got a CPU yet. So am I able to just buy an Ivy bridge and install it into this mobo out of the box? Or do I need a sandy bridge CPU to update the bios THEN install an Ivy bridge?
Thank you

I can't speak for the newer Z version, but the older P67 version has a 'bios flashback' option, where one can flash the bios without having a cpu, gfxcard or anything connected to the mainboard (except the powersupply, which is needed). I am guessing that the Z version has this bios flashback option as well.

I am not sure if the bios flashback is appropriate for all bios upgrades (going from 2.xx bios to 3.xx bios). Who knows, maybe it is or maybe it isn't. Perhaps the flashing tools in the bios menu on boot is needed?

Perhaps others can be helpful in adding some information here.

Ill give that a try when I get my power supply. Can anyone else confirm this?
Thanks

BSOD while wayching youtube videos? What is going on here? I have more than enough voltage for my clock, just running a measley 4.5ghz on my 2600k @1.38v (i know my chip sucks) but what the F?!

Running 1409 Bios.

It only happened this morning first in a long time, of course got the x24 error code.

I have seen a few post's where people have been able to use the ROG Connect USB port on rear I/O to flashback to 2xxx series but I was unable to after flashing to 3xxx series, just glad 3304 solved my issues.

I will want to be careful in being overly confident in answering here, but I am left with the impression that using a 2.xx bios for Ivy bridge cpu will currently (unless it changed very recently) limit overclocking severely.

Something to do with needing a 3.xx bios that also is relevant for eh unlocking the overclocking capabilities of an Ivy bridge cpu. I feel silly writing about this, because I have no personal experience about this myseld, just stuff I have read about. A bios that simply supports Ivy bridge cpu on a P67 motherboard will simply allow you to use the cpu, but without the overclocking capabilities until a new bios is made. AFAIK.

So using an Ivy Bridge cpu with P67 motherboard seem, eh risky imo. Don't know if new bios will be made. Perhaps someone that is more updated about this issue can enlighten you about this.

Hmm, else a newer motherboard will have "native" usb 3.0 support (and other things I guess). I think I read that with P67, USB 3.0 functionality goes through PCI channels or something like that. *shrugs*

Thank you

You can, but dont use 3xxx BIOS, 2xxx BIOS revisions work fine with USB BIOS flashback as far as i know, but im not sure.

Anyway, get the mobo going, then you can reflash with ez flash metod to 3xxx BIOS.

I think A0 is the new AA. I read something like that on the ROG forums. FWIW, I updated the BIOS on mine before the Chimp Challenge and folded for ten days straight without an issue, the BIOS code was A0 the whole time. thumb.gif
