There is one problem that I can't seem to solve with this mobo and that is just to apply a small overclock simply by raising the cpu's multiplier manually in the bios. I've tried to raise multiplier just to 21.0
from a default 20.0, then save the settings. Sometimes it will show the set clock speed in the bios, but sometimes I'll have to save it twice and when it does stick, it will either not get recognised in windows or reset to default clock speeds in windows after a restart, but will still report the clock speed set in the bios. Odd.

I've tried this with bios versions 0701, 0801, 0901 and the latest 1001 but still no luck. Apart from that it works like a charm at default clock speeds and rock solid stable too.smile.gif

Anyone got any ideas?

I wanted to point out to anyone potentially looking to get this board that it is discontinued.

If you want a high performance AM3+ board, you better act fast.

Be honest, behind the facade of those things, the real priority is just screwing everyone over in the name of obscene profit & delaying any kind of backlash as long as possible. That's the real world.

Don't think that there's anything really wrong with the mobo' as everything is rock solid stable at default clocks, etc. But it is quite odd that it just doesn't like even slightly raising the multiplier.

If you are thinking of updating to version 1001, don't do it!!!! It's worse than 0901. Very unstable! For overclocking. Worse than previous version!
I really wish Asus would get ahold of this issue!

Just installed it the other day but it's not really overclocked. It mines on cpu+gpu 24/7 and it did crash a few times in the past few months so "improved mining stability" sounded good to me.

Out of all the bios releases i found 0801 to be the most stable but currently still testing 1001. 1001 did fix the chassis fans to run at set speeds though when resuming from sleep mode, as they used to run at full speed until i restarted

All BIOS versions for it SUCK big time. Voltage calibration messes up every time I change something related to power delivery. Same settings aren't stable every time, it requires tweaking all the time.

Whatever they did in the latest BIOS for mining stability is sure working for me. Haven't had a single random crash or reboot like it did previously.
