Hello,

I recently got the Maximus IX hero, and was messing around in the UEFI/BIOS. I accidentally overclocked my ram too high and the computer wouldnt even post, so I decided to clear the CMOS with the button on the I/O panel on the back of the motherboard. Prior to pressing it there was no light, however after I pressed it a green light came on, highlighting the button, and when I started my computer, the CMOS was cleared, however the green light is still on. Is it normal for it stay on after being pressed the first time, or should I be worried?

Thanks

Mine has also always been lit (old motherboard though); if you are not experiencing any issues, then I would not worry about it.

Yes, it is. It remains lit always.

Thanks everyone for the replies, for some reason I thought it wasn't on before, I didn't remember it being lit up. I appreciate the help
