    The problem seems to have gone now.

    I re-downloaded the bios, but I used the second mirror (the date of the bios was 2 days later, if I remember correctly) - not sure if that made any difference. I then cleared cmos as usual and flashed the bios with the flashback facility.
    It's now been working perfectly for about 3 weeks.

    Very good. The CMOS clear with the board in "standby" state after the flash is the key here I suspect.

    Promised to report here... my RTC has not stopped yet and it's been over a week. It seems likely that either the re-flash or the standby-CMOS-reset was the solution. Thanks a lot for the advice. I'll let you know if the BIOS clock stop failure occurs again.

    Thanks for the update.

    Hello Raja,

    I'm new to this forum and I'm following this issue here for a while.

    I have the same problem with the freezing BIOS clock with the Z87-Pro. I own this Z87-Pro since two months and during this time my clock stopped about 8 times.

    I applied your fix several times. Each time reflashing newest UEFI (meanwhile 1405) and clearing CMOS in standby. This starts the clock, but the error reoccurs on my system. The time span until this happens varies from 24h to 14 days.

    Thus I cannot confirm that the fix is resolving the problem for me. I would be glad, if you could investigate this topic further.

    My spec:
    - Asus Z87-Pro
    - Intel 4670K
    - Gigabyte GTX 760
    - PSU: BeQuiet Dark Power Pro 10 650W

    Best regards

    How is the system setup - what else are you doing in UEFI?

    Hello Raja,

    I apply the following changes to the standard settings:

    AI Overclock Tuner: Auto -> XMP

    CPU Core Ratio: Auto-> Per Core
    Core 1-4: Auto -> 42
    CPU Core Voltage: Auto -> Adaptive
    Additional Turbo Mode CPU Core Voltage: Auto -> 1,110V


    DRAM Frequency: Auto -> DDR3-1600
    DRAM Voltage: Auto -> 1.5V
    DRAM CAS: Auto -> 9
    DRAM RAS: Auto -> 9
    DRAM RAS Pre: Auto -> 9
    DRAM ACT: Auto -> 24
    DRAM Command: Auto -> 2

    Intel xHCI Mode: SmartAuto -> Enabled

    ErP Ready: Disabeled -> Enabled S4+S5

    CPU Fan Speed 600 -> 300
    Chassis Fan Speed 1-4: 600 -> 300

    USB Support: Partial Initialisation -> Full Initialisation

    Reasons for these Settings:

    1) Problems with late initialisation of USB Mouse -> solved by Full Initialisation
    2) Occasional wake up by WLan from Power off -> solved by ErP Enabled
    3) After shutdown in Windows 7 (64) the computer turns off, but the Power LED sometimes remains illuminated -> not solved yet

    By the way: When turning of my Computer I physically disconnect it from power by a switch after complete shutdown.

    Best regards.

    A few things:

    1) Do not apply any overclock to the system for now. Run the CPU at total stock.

    2) Check the CMOS battery is not "flat"/drained. Try a replacement battery if you have one.

    3) What is the memory kit part number and how many modules do you have?

    1) I run the CPU at total stock now.
    2) I replaced the CMOS battery, reflashed the BIOS (1405) and reset the CMOS on standby.
    3) Memory: 8GB G.Skill RipjawX, 2*4GB, Part No: F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL (DDR3-1600-CL 9-9-9-24 1,5V PC3-12800 4Gx2 Intel XMP ready)

    It seems, like the clock stops when booting the system (the frozen clock shows the same time like the last system boot in the Windows log file).

    I will run my system with these settings now and will report what's happening.

    Hello Raja,

    the clock stopped today again (with the new CMOS Battery insatlled and the CPU at stock).

    It happened 26h after reset, 22h after the last power off, 4th power on after reset.

    The frozen time was about 5 to 10 seconds after the time of pressing the power button.
