    Did you try replacing the CMOS battery?

    We all know that Asus never fixed the BIOS Frozen clock problem.

    The only solution they published about this is a temporary fiix which doesn't really solve the problem because no matter what you're doing the bug keeps coming back, soon or late.

    However, I made a very interesting discovery lately about this bug...

    If I uninstall Microsoft update Visual C++ 2005, the bug goes away and never comes back.

    At lesast, this is the result I have on my Windows 7 x64 computer.

    Of course, the uninstallation of this update will make you loose some minor functionnalities...

    For instance, on my computer, the Logitech MX5500 keyboard can no longer display the time and date and my M-Audio KeyStation Pro88 MiDi keyboard driver can no longer be installed. However, this driver is not necessary anymore under Windows 7 x64.

    In other words, there is a little trade off to pay for the uninstallation of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 update, but at least, you'll get a stable running computer that doesn't crash anymore because of the BIOS Frozen Clock bug...

    Give it a try, who knows, it might work for you also...

    Asus Z87 MOBO Frozen Bios Clock Issue
    Can someone please inform me is this an issue that occurs only when any kind of overclocking is done.
    This includes enabling XMP profiles of RAM that has XMP feature.
    In other words is there anybody out there who has had frozen clock issue where no overclocking was done.
    Thanks...GAry

    I'm having the problem, never overclocked anything.

    Is there any permanent solution to this yet?

    My clock is set back repeatedly by 2 hours (Europe)

    Not sure if I'm having the same issue as everyone else, but the Clock in Windows (and in the Bios) is set back by 2 hours every 2-3 days. It's always these two hours (e.g. 18.00h instead of 20.00h), date and other Bios settings stay correct. I'm on a Maximus Impact VII with the latest Bios (2801) but had this problem since months and with every BIOS I've tried. Tried the fix with new installation of Bios + CMOS reset in standby, tried replacing the battery, tried other suggestions I found - no results at all.

    This is just very frustrating and I would love to RMA this expensive board. But I've modded a heatsink on the power delivery PCB to fit a large cooler (cut off two edges of the PCBs heatsink to make room for heatpipes). So I assume this is voiding my warranty, even though it's most definitely not the cause of my BIOS/clock problem.

    Um guys, as you may have noticed, ASUS released this board two and a half years ago. Right from the outset, people including myself were complaining about this. The most recent BIOS update (which was a while ago) seemed to improve things marginally but not eliminate it. The clock will still freeze from time to time. Seems to have been aggravated by the latest "Nov update" of Windows. But that's just my opinion.

    What is not opinion is that ASUS boards are overrated and the fact that they refuse to acknowledge their inferior and faulty product means that the HeroVI will be the last ASUS mother board I ever buy. My two most recent PC's are running high end MSI boards and I could not be happier.

    Face facts people, after 2.5 years there is no fix coming. ASUS stopped support for this board. You, like me, are on your own my friends. You purchased an inferior product. Live with it or change brands.

    When I originally purchased this board, the previous owner said he had to deal with the time freezing at random. I have a Maximus VI Hero Z87 which has NEVER experienced this problem for the 2.5 years now that i've owned it.
    I flashed the BIOS when I got it to 1002. I have been in the UEFI repeatedly overclocking it and altering tons of settings and still the time has never frozen. I am playing around with 4.4GHz now.
    It really isn't clear what causes this problem. The only difference for me is i've running Windows 7 SP1 with Updates disabled, but I doubt the OS would cause this.
