    hello

    There are a couple of memory QVLs on the support page of the M6F.

    can anyone please tell me if this is a Bug or a defect ? :



    At Load the Voltage goes up to 2.2v. At the beginning i remember there was a Bug between CPUZ and Asus Boards were the VCCIN was read instead the Vcore but this is not the same because its also wrong in the Bios

    Thanx

    EDIT: made a own Thread here now :

    I think it's a bug from both programs reading it from BIOS. There are a few bugs on the AI Suite yet, but it's expected unfortunately, it's a new board. The only way to be certain that it's a defect you would need an external voltage reader, directly plugged in the mobo.
    Try Intel ETU utility to compare.

    BIOS 1402 came out:
    1. Improve system stability.
    2. Support New 4th-Generation Intel Core Processors
    3. Before using the new Intel 4th Gen Core processors, we suggest that you first update the BIOS using USB BIOS flashback, or download the BIOS updater for new Intel 4th Gen Core Processors and then update the BIOS using it.

    So far after flashing it, nothing changed, same issue with that "boom sound" on power up, same time booting, entering OS, etc.
    I'll try some OC to see if it improves further, and run some synthetic tests.

    looks like 0.005-0.010v better than 1302.

    It's only been an hour or so, but I'm also getting .01v lower Vcore - 4400MHz at 1.30v with version 1302 down to 1.29 with 1402 - both cases OCCT stable. Surprisingly, Vcache dropped from 1.30v to 1.24.

    The philosophy of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' has merit because there is a little risk to flashing BIOS updates. To an inveterate overclocker, it's always broke. I get blue screens. OK, they only happen when I'm trying to push this dog of a Haswell CPU past 90000 score in Realbench, but they happen and that's trouble. Since I will always have trouble, I'll always try a new BIOS version. I also keep the older version and its profiles on the flash drive to back up easily if needed.

    spacing in between the first and second PCIe slot

    does anyone know the spacing in between the first and second PCIE slots? i wish to watercool 2 cards and use a parallel bridge to link them.

    All I know is that the third pcie slot can't handle any type o card because of the q-connector. I tried to fit a normal sized vga card there and it hits the connectors, so you cannot plug the card, unless you plug the cables directly in the mobo.
    Smaller cards you fit there, maybe very fin water blocked vga will too.
    Can you just measure it with a ruler?

    Why no release notes for BIOS updates?

    I'm trying to not whine....but not being very successful!

    I buy lots of tech products and download tons of software and firmware updates. Is there some reason we don't get release notes to tell us what "performance update" or "system stability" aspect(s) were changed with a new BIOS release? Most big companies and almost as many tiny companies do this!

    How can I tell if your change will make any difference for me? Maybe it fixes a CPU, or card that I don't have, so why bother?

    Asus has to know what the fixes are, and what, if any, outstanding bugs/issues are in a new release. I understand that Asus BIOS firmware doesn't necessarily mean it was written by Asus, but I'd be hard pressed to work at Asus and just take some code a vendor gave me without testing and quantifying fixes and bugs in a new BIOS!

    OK, enough whining, I'm going back to work now!

    Thanks,
