[Official] Asus Maximus IV Extreme Owners Club - Page 31

Hey guys, i'm a happy owner of a ASUS Maximus Extreme IV with a i7 2600K. But I'm also having these cold boot issues and they are driving me crazy..!

I'm using GEIL Black Dragon memory (GB34GB1333C7DC), which gives memory errors only on a cold boot in Dual Channel config...

Testing with MemTest86+ version 4.20 learns me:

Using 1 module doesn't give any errors (tried both)
Using both modules in slot A1 and B1 (black slots) gives at least 5 errors within 1 minute
Using both modules in slot A2 and B2 (red slots) gives at least 5 errors within 1 minute
DRAM speed detects 1333MHz, but also tried to put it on manual 1333MHz -> still errors
Switch DRAM Timings to manual on 7-7-7-24 or 9-9-9-24 on 1T and on 2T gives errors
DRAM voltage manual on 1.5 or 1.55 gives errors
All DRAM settings on auto gives errors
There is no XMP setting to try...
The errors only appears when the PC has been off for 7 hours and I do a cold boot. When I start switching slots the errors dissappears, but the next day they are back...

Pfff I don't know what to do...

Ha, fixed it myself... okay... with a little help from a dutch tweakers forum tongue.gif

COLD BOOT FIX:

Reflash your Bios:
1. Reset your UEFI to Optimized Defaults, reboot, enter UEFI and then flash to the new UEFI build.
2. After flash and restart, enter Windows/Linux, then exit and shutdown.
3. Remover the power cord from the power supply, wait thirty seconds, press Power On button to clear any remaining charge, clear CMOS for five seconds, reattach the power cord, power on the system, enter UEFI, set to Optimized Defaults, save and exit.
4. Enter UEFI, set your system to customized settings based on your system configuration (RAID, OC, etc), save and exit.

Note: I used bios 1204

It doesn't sound like the NOCTUA is a problem although it is quite large and easily moved while attached to the CPU so you have to be careful, I thought maybe it could move the pressure point a little one way or the other and impinge on the pins underneath the CPU. So by Wednesday we will know if the CPU error code 58 is caused by the CPU.....gunner2.gif

CHUCK

I installed the noctua nh-d14 because I was getting high temps with the stock cooler, and now I'm not getting the error 58 code anymore. I'm using 8GB Ram (2x4GB) running 1600 in red slots (2 & 4, A2/B2) and it's detecting the 8GB in the BIOS.

What I thought is that I was getting the error code 58 beecause you cant do dual channel if your temps r too high. Seems like that was the issue, at least thats the only thing I did and now I'm not getting the error code 58.

Hey that's progress....here is a page that also sheds some light on how sensitive this whole process is ; http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20100517061829000&board_id=1&model=P6X58D+Premium&page=1&SLanguage=en-us and also this one http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20100429194317906&board_id=1&model=P6X58D+Premium&page=1&SLanguage=en-us

Is it possible to Quad SLI the GTX590 on the MIVE? I mean; on what PCI Express speed would this happen? Two times 16x? Or will it use 16x and 8x? And is 8x enough to handle the throughput of a 590?

Well, I already got the new CPU, but I see a couple of pins that don't look exactly right on the MOBO, I don't think I can straighten them out....I called ASUS support and all they could do was take my info and give me a RMA. They couldn't even say if they have the board in stock, they say maybe they can tell me tomorrow. Even worse they will not give you a brand new board under any circumstances.....they will give you a refurbished one. If the board is NOT in stock then they say I will have to wait 2-3 weeks before it would become available.. Even more worse if the board is not in stock they will not advance ship you a replacement you must send your old board in and wait till the cows come home.

I just built my Sig Rig 4 days ago... I'm loving the Maximus IV, probably the best board I've ever worked with.

I do have a question for you guys though... I have 2 580 SCs in SLI. As per the recommendations of a ASUS Tech and the Maximus Manual, I'd get better performance putting my GPUs in Slot 1 and 3 for 16x/8x...

However, my cards are pretty big and the card in slot 3 is blocking the fan of card in slot 1 making it 10 c hotter when even idle.

Should I put the second card in Slot 5? or is 16x/16x a no go for Dual SLI? Would I really lose performance by doing that?

New builder, greetings everyone. Apologies for the lack of experience, go easy on me now!

Just finished my new build with a sigh of relief (damn Antec1200 case). But I seem to have run in to some issues. Here's my spec.

ASUS Maximus IV Extreme B3 Revision
Intel i7 2600k
8gb (2x4) Gskill Ripjaws-X 1600
NVIDIA GTX 570 x2 SLI
Corsair H50 Cooler
Corsair 1000w Modular PSU (I'm inclined to say it's an HX, they look identical looking them up now, but I would swear I got mine less than half the current price a couple of months ago)

Used all the parts except the motherboard, CPU and RAM in my previous system.

Anyway, the system boots successfully but after 15-20 minutes it freezes completely, seems like a lot less time until crash when transfering files/general use (can't confirm right now). Keyboard and mouse LEDs go out too. Post code AA is up on the motherboard display.

I assumed it was a PSU issue. I removed, one by one, retrying to get a stable system each time, my optical drive, optional case fans, and second graphics card in an attempt to reduce the strain on the PSU (though it should obviously be able to handle it all). No dice.

After a crash if I attempt to restart the system before it has completely discharged then windows will not boot. Freezes on loading windows. Same deal. Keyboard/mouse go out too. At first I was restarting immediately after a crash - it seemed like using a different SATA port for the HDD was the only way to get a successful boot after each crash while doing this. Silly me?

All BIOS settings are default right now. With the BIOS version at the factory default.

Any ideas?

PS. Updating the BIOS was next on my to-do list, but alas, it's been 9 hours since starting and the need for sleep has caught up to me. I'll try tomorrow.

I think you mean slot 4? This one is running of the NF200 chip and I'm curious if your second card will be at 8x or 16x speed? Slot 1 and 3 are native SLI (Intel Chipset)... so I guess it's worth testing... poke.gif

I got a response from Asus regarding RMA my board, as I noted there may a couple of pins that do not look right. Look, this is a brand new board, I installed the CPU ever so carefully (only once) and from day one I had this problem of slot #1 and #2 not working. So here is the Asus deal, they will send me a refurbished (never a new one) board within a couple of days....however, if any pins are broken or bent they will charge my credit card for a brand new board. So buyer beware, if you cannot determine that you have a bad board within your 30 day window with your seller ( if they offer one like newegg does) then you are literally screwed if the board has any bent or broken pins, even if this is through no fault of your own. I understand the logic if some junior guy goes in and messes around, but I am an older guy and I am extremely careful. They also state "broken traces or burns due to improper installation/removal of other components or any pen and/or markers on the board"

ASUS WARRANTY POLICY is crap at least from my own experiences thus far, why would you want to purchase a refurbished board at retail price? Here is another piece of info...it is possible, IMO, that these heavier coolers like the Noctua NH-D14 may impinge on the socket, if you have one, you will discover that the whole mass can tilt left or right after installation excerting more pressure on the left or right outside pins, and just maybe this can cause some pin damage to the outer pins, which is where my problem appears to be. That means just tilting your case over to work on it and tilting it back up again can cause the Noctua NH-D14 mass to excert some leverage on the cpu/socket..
