Nice board... think I will wait for the Formula version though. I hope they make one!

Cooler: Cooler Master V8
Power Supply:Thermaltake 875W 80plus TPX-875
HDD: 300GBx2 Raid0 + Hitachi(3tb sata 6.0gb/s 7200rpm)

My first question is...
Is there something wrong with this setup??? such as low power or weak cpu cooler?????

I have overclocked for the first time with turbo-evo Auto Tunning fuction and got following result during the IntelBurnTest with maximum stresss level.

Core Speed:4600.3 mhz
Core Voltage: 1.344 V
CPU Temp: Highest 70 C, Lowest 47 C

Second question is..
Is this stable and good overclocked?? Is the core Voltage and CPU Temp stable??
Can some one please tell me what is good and safe Voltage level and safe temperature?? and should I be checking the CPU socket temps also?
As you can see on the pic. the cpu temp drops down to 46-50C every couple minutes and is that normal???


Sorry for too many questions..
Nooby needs too learn..
Both the CPU cooler and PSU seem fine, the PSU is more than enough for that system, it even leaves wiggle room for a 2nd 580 in SLI later on down the road.

The OC seems fine, have to watch it and make sure it doesn't get much higher than 70c, but if you keep the CPU cooler clean that shouldn't be an issue. 80c isn't a good temp for a CPU to be at 24/7.

What program did you use to overclock it again? the AI Suite II?

The voltage i wouldn't let get above 1.45v on a 24/7 basis though some seem to go above this up to 1.50v to get he overclock they want, to each their own.

As for the CPU temps dropping it's probably just speedstep doing it's job, speedstep drops the CPU down to 1.6ghz i believe when it's not being fully used.

Thank you for your answer.
Yes i used the AI suite II..i lower the voltage to 1.295v with 4600mhz and did the burn test and passed it...so i should keep this way?

Hi there,

I have some strange issues with this board, here's my config:

MB: Asus Maximus IV Extreme (Bios 1101) Rev ????
CPU:Intel i7 2600k
Power: Corsair HX1000W
Cooling: Corsair H70
RAM: 8GB Corsair Dominator GT 1866 + Airflow2 + Airflow Pro
GPU: 3x Sapphire 6970 CrossfireX @ 3x Asus VE278Q LED
Case: Coolermaster HAF 932
HDD: Corsair F120

For a few days now the System can't be powered on with the PWR-Button(s) - I have to press (and sometimes hold) the Q-Reset-Switch to start... with the power button pressed, sometimes it gets power for a sec before shutting down again... also the SSD is sometimes not recognized (at any sata/sataII port)...

When the system is finally running (SSD recognized) everything is "fine" except for 2 "memory-managment" bluescreens I had so far (in windows).

This problem also occurs with only 2 GPU's and the system worked fine for some time.

In CPU-Z (also 1.57) I still see Rev 1.xx - also in the system information of AI Suite II - although the box said Rev B3.

The problems started when I tried the autotune feature and the system was supposed to restart - but it shut down and couldn't be restarted...

Is the board dead or has somebody an idea what I can try?

To be quite honest you're having so many issues i would just RMA the board, it's not just 1 thing, it's the SSD, it's your GPU's, it's your RAM, it's the PC not starting, i would maybe try one thing before i RMA the board but it's a longgg shot.

Try building the PC outside of the case on some cardboard and see if the issues persist, it could be you have or had a short in the case that caused this but it is a long shot. Other than that i would RMA it.

Yes, try not to go over 1.35v. I also have it at 4.6GHz and 1.295v. It's very stable and cool enough to where I do not need to monitor the cpu temp at all. Also, there isn't anything a 2600K @4.6GHz can't handle. 5GHz is a waste of time unless all you do is bench.

Try pressing the clear cmos button with the power supply shut off or unplugged from the wall.
