    So you mean that the 602 is much more stable?

    For me yes 602 bios was way more stable/ Fully stable. A old bios is not always a bad thing lol. I tried many different bios for my MB 602 was the only full on win for me.

    Thanks a lot. I have read a lots of bad thing about 0805. But so far still okay,but i want to make sure i run the most stable on my mobo.

    And another question. Maybe you can help me. Now everything is on default settings in the bios. Do you recommened anything to set manually in the bios. Like Asus Multicore Enchanment disable and set cpu voltage to manual or I can leave it on auto etc. I dont plan much overclocking but as i said i want my system run stable.

    And about the drivers. Which drivers are you using? From the mobo support disk or from the support page?

    Sorry for the lots of question.

    Regards,
    Janos

    Its ok questions are good its how we learn :] I will not allow what I call junk programs on my PCs even if its a laptop lol from a write up I did on another site reg video card driver install just to give you a idea lol.... 7- When the time comes to install the video card driver you will be picking custom advanced you will only install two things from it for Nvidia cards 1- Graphics Driver 2- PhysX System unless your system needs more most don't and all the extra junk does make issues for most people in games.

    I have a very set way of doing things with programs to keep my rigs stable G Force experience is full on trash and not allowed on my rigs I fully hate this program pure trash lol. I fixed way too many game issues for others due to Asus programs and G Force experience both make me nuts and Armoury Crate got added to my bad programs list as it made issues for a buddy in BFV Place eye roll in this spot. He was bad for using programs to update his PC bad bad move and I had to format him and fix his PC to get his BFV stable again .

    I never use any Asus programs to many issues over the years for me and I keep my two game PC's very stable and clean by always d/l my drivers from the MB web page only. I disable Armoury Crate in BIOS its under tools and nor will I allow the Realtek sound drivers installed just another problem child from Asus in my mind. Nor do I need it as I use Sennheiser GSX 1000 Audio Amplifier & Sennheiser Game Zero Headset so I have no need for Realtek thank goodness just read the thread on this site with its issues :/

    Asus Multicore Enchantment I have set to Auto with my manual OC on my ram.

    Under Tools Asus Armoury crate Disable it another problem child in my mind best to DL your drivers not use a program

    Under Boot | CSM [ compatibility Support Module] set launch csm enabled , Boot device control set it to... UEFI and Legacy OProm , Last 3 set to Legacy only .. 1-network devices 2- storage devices and 3- pci-e/pci expansion devices all 3 set to Legacy only

    Under boot again go to Secure Boot set OS type to windows UEFI Mode

    If your on bios 602 now this is the settings I use other then my Manuel OC used on my ram settings are in my sig. And no I did not do it on my own I got help from a OC guy on this site to do my ram.
