    Thumbs up

    I can safely say that the most useful feature on Asus motherboards in my opinion is the memory OK button , it has saved my life quite a few many times under cold. Awsome feature only used on Asus Mobos , Mem Ok FTW !

    Anyone have their hands on the Z87 - Deluxe or Deluxe/Dual yet? These seem to be the most feature rich and reasonably priced on the market (for us normal folk)...just looking for some end user opinions on them.

    Just spent a little too long with the forum search, google search and everything to find this guide. Where is this guide?

    I just finished putting a system together with the Z87 deluxe. haven't had time to mess around with it much yet, this is my busy time of year at work. That having been said, I plan to spend the vast majority of my off time in the coming weeks screwing around with it. will update my sig with the current build info early this week and start posting results. I can say this so far, everything works great. No problems what so ever. My last build was with an asus p35 black pearl, so this system overclocks in completely different ways. hello learning curve.

    I took my Asus Z87-Pro today for a spin on my Cascade and to my surprise she gave back to me this:

    Very stable mobo , loving it more every day , I need to take this good cpu for a spin on my Maximus 6 extreme for more Mhz on LN2

    Hi All,

    Can someone share what volts I should set some of the Bios features at to get better than 4.62GHz with a 4770K 4/8 to complete 3DMark06.

    Trying to get to 4.8GHz on cold water in a cool basement. Here is a screen shot of my settings. Any higher BClock at these voltages it freezes.

    I'm using Shammy's Bios as it worked better than 0606 on my M6 Gene.

    Yeah just reviewed Deluxe: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...rd-review.html

    Tested a bunch of features, should be useful for a typical user.

    Update from Shammy

    http://kingpincooling.com/forum/show...stcount=870031

    0031 for m6E
    http://www.mediafire.com/?z4u8cg24zccpz1d

    0038 for M6G
    http://www.mediafire.com/?31og10794i6s0p1

    will update for Hero later

    updates:

    initial bclk available in tweakers if ai tuner is not auto, auto = bclk in main page unless you wanna boot with different then adjust this
    eventual dram voltage moved into timing control
    adds skew controls in dram config menu
    -skew control in dram makes a whole big diff but time consuming so u can fine tune one by one.

    focus on the 2 green ones first then move onto the blue one



    Thanks Shammy

    Thanx for the tip Dumo. I also found I can squeeze out more CPU speed by turning down the Uncore from 4600 to 3900. And additional Uncore (N/B) speed wasn't helping in 3DMark06, but CPU speed does. I max out the 4770K at 4.85 GHz on a tad more than 1.40v. Real temp shows my max cpu temperatures at 79C-81C for all cores.

    This is the max I can probably squeeze out of this CPU/Mobo/GPU combination.

    Asus has put out BIOS 1205 for the Z87-Pro. AFAICT, it lowers the automatic overclock and ups the adaptive voltage. Bear in mind that installing this BIOS wipes your settings, including saved profiles in the BIOS and settings in AI Suite. You either should save your settings first (out to USB stick for the BIOS) or you'll have to re-enter our BIOS settings or re-run the Four Way Optimisation routine.

    It seems to be quite pessimistic as my chip does a higher clock on much less voltage.

    Is anyone else finding that AI Suite does not automatically load your saved settings after a reboot? You get Asus default speed and voltages for things like the CPU ratio and OC Voltage, when I want to load lower voltages. Does this have to be set in the BIOS, making AI Suite half useless?

    No,it should write back to UEFI. If you changed anything then obviously whatever was changed in UEFI will stick (it does not create an OS based profile becasue it is supposed to write the settings to UEFI). Make sure you are running the latest AI Suite build for the board also.

    Definitely doesn't work then. I'm running the latest AI Suite and checked all the components against the Asus global website. I'm running a Z87-Pro with the latest 1205 UEFI, and it reloads the old UEFI settings into AI Suite at every boot, and won't save the settings back to the UEFI. The version of AI Suite unpacks to "AISuite_III_Win7_8_Z87-Deluxe_VER10044" - is this the correct version for the Pro board? It is what is given under the Asus Z87-Pro download page, and it is newer than the one on the support CD.

    It does save the settings to UEFI when you run the 4 Way Tuning, but after that any manual changes do not stick between bootups.

    This is especially annoying because it's loading a massive 1.275v adaptive voltage into the CPU under load, giving very high temps and high voltages that are completely unnecessary and potentially damaging, and won't save my changes to the settings. I've had AI Suite report 1.396v under load, when it really isn't needed to get stability on my chip.

    The adaptive voltage and AVX instructions are the issue. I've told people if they are going to run AVX stress utilities NOT to use adaptive mode. The CPU will just throttle down as the temp breaches anyway. You can set UEFI to manual mode and the VID wil just copy over to a manual VID.


    Let me make the rest clearer. It seems we have crossed wires here:

    1) After you run 4-way, the settings it determines will write back to UEFI.

    2) If you want to change anything AFTER 4-way, do it in UEFI, NOT in AI Suite III. Manual changes in AI Suite III by you do not write back to UEFI. Only the 4-way portion does. I think that is the part that has you confused.
