View Full Version : Maximus IX Hero cold boot issues

02-14-2017, 06:15 PM
I am having trouble with my new IX Hero, every time I shut it off it will not turn on again. Q code 00 and nothing!
The only thing I have found to work is to clear the CMOS with the button on the IO plate

Does anyone have any ideas to what I can do to fix this?

Another fun thing is that the UEFI usually crashes when I select a saved overclocking profile, so I have to set everything up again manually every time.

I am relatively sure that the OC is stable, it can do 10 hours of IBT, 24 hours of x264

Stability extends far beyond being able to pass a certain stress test. Posting correctly is part of a stable system. The easiest way to see if your overclock is causing this problem is to clear your CMOS and test your system at stock default. :)
