View Full Version : ROG Connect and RC Bluetooth guide
11-23-2010, 01:33 AM
This is a guide to show you step by step o how to setup your ROG connect and RC Bluetooth. For those of you that dont know about ROG connect, its pretty much the coolest invention ever! You can remotely control and overclock your system on the hardware level. There is no software tweaking through windows OS, everything is handled directly on the IROG chip changing settings in the BIOS real time!
ROG connect is pretty straight forward:
Download the latest ROG connect software and install it on your netbook or notebook. connect the ROG connect usb cable from the notebook and to the ROG connect usb port
Here we have a Crosshair IV Extreme, but it will work on all models with ROG connect support. Before opening the ROG Connect application, you need to press the ROG connect button. It will light up green when on. Then go ahead and open up the program on your notebook and you are ready to go.
As you can see here, we have changed the value of the cpu bus speed to 214, then hit apply.
and here is our result. This app is in AISUITE II. It can also be verified through CPUZ

Here is out to setup your RC bluetooth connect. Note that bluetooth connect comes only in the ROG Extreme models. Maximus III Extreme, Rampage III Extreme, Crosshair IV Extreme, and Maximus IV Extreme In this setup, we will show you how to connect using a droid (android) phone
first you should download the latest drivers from the http://support.asus.com/
if you have a droid, you should download the program called astro file manager from the market place
Be sure to have the bluetooth module on your Extreme board:
we will attempt to transfer your rc connect files to your phone over bluetooth. so add new connection
be sure to have your phone on discovery mode
find your phone from the search results
click on wireless transfer
click on your phone
add in the entire zip file. attempting to just add the apk file will not transfer
accept the file transfer
open the folder
open the android folder
click on the install file
before you open the app, be sure to turn on the RC connect button which should light up blue. you do NOT need to turn on the rog connect button
once the ROG app installs, open the app and press the settings button. click on devices
you should be able to find RC bluetooth and connect to it.
If all goes well, you should be connected and should see this menu pop up. you are not connected.
here are some shots in action. changing the bus speed to 207 and adjusting the cpu speed in real time on the system through the hardware.
Other things you can monitor through your droid
adjust your display settings

Same here,does not connect to my Samsung i9000 and my bluetoth works the wrong way! When my device on MOBO lights up,it is inactive,when i press it again and light is out its active..... WTF
Anyway,when i try and search for device from my phone it just stays searching and never finds my pc,i have had it paired but the app will not work.
Great guide BTW.

for rc bluetooth to work, the light needs to be on. when the light is on the windows bluetooth software is off. this is because the protocol goes directly to the hardware and NOT through windows. for normal bluetooth services the the bluetooth button is off, then your normal bt functions in windows will turn on. its kind of backwards... no light means normal bt is on in windows. with light, means rc connect is on.
when rc connect is on, use your phone to search for rc bluetooth. once you see that and connect, open up cpu z, make a change and see if it adjusts on the fly

Getting same thing, bluetooth works fine when not using ROG for any and all devices. However trying to use the ROG app on my Desire HD and just keeps coming up with "The connection is not available". Followed the guide reinstalled many many times and nothing.

Is there going to be a adjustment for the ram added to the app? As you need a way to adjust the ram when upping the bclk on the app. As if not you will drive your ram way above the specs and all it is going to do is hard-lock.

Same for me "The connection is not available"!:( It has worked one time and it also shows me Rc Bluetooth under Bluetooth settings.
I'm using Galaxy s GT I9000 with a costum rom ""Darky Rom"! maybe this is the reason why it won't connect anymore??
Has anyone an idea or are must there any particular settings in the Bios activated!?
Thanks for help:)

Question - I have the Android software (RC Bluetooth) from the Android Market Place. I also purchased an ASUS bluetooth device (BT211). Is it possible to put the bluetooth device into the ROG USB port and allow it to transfer via bluetooth, or use another usb port for the bluetooth connection to the android? I'm very technical so if I need to rip into a INF for a driver, that's no problem.
Just wondering if anyone has tried this or thier thoughts...

Windows 7 x64
Maximus Extreme-Z IV
Bios was 3603
RC Bluetooth when blue led on bluetooth device lite up
Mark-PC when its not (button depressed)
Manual says button depressed regular bluetooth.
Button pressed and illuminated device is read for RC connect.
Button pressed LED is BLUE, Android is connected to RC Bluetooth.
"The connection is not available."
What's going on here why can it not connect.
Bluetooth works fine for regular file transfers just won't work when button is pressed and RC connect trys to connect.
