    Default ASUS Rampage IV Formula - Issues

    Have a couple odd things happening with my new motherboard.

    1) From a cold start (powered off) a USB keyboard is not always enabled in time to enter the BIOS during the 10 second (maximum setting) interval during boot. I basically have to quick press RESET to have it cycle booting again. The second time works. Warm resets always work. Probably a BIOS bug?

    2) Once or twice a day the motherboard temperature suddenly becomes 123c or -60c. I am using ASUS AI Suite II to monitor the sensor.

    For #2, has anyone else had the problem or heard of the problem? Wondering whether it is a failing sensor, a bios error, an AI Suite bug, or what. Not sure whether to ignore it or RMA the board.


    EDIT: Evidently not an AI Suite bug since AIDA64 also seems to report the sudden jump in temperatures. So either a failing sensor or BIOS bug.

    I am still interested in hearing back whether anyone else has experienced this kind of problem before ...

    I have not had it happen with my ASRock boards yet.
    Have you D/L'd the latest BIOS for it yet? You can flash it through the EUFI BIOS's pages with the new BIOS loaded onto a USB flash drive.

    Yep, I upgraded to the latest BIOS (3404) last week-ish when I put it all together. Your post prompted me to check for an update ... guess what ... they removed all download links for the motherboard!!!

    That is not good,.........

    It's considered to be at end of life?
    If you already got the files, keep them by all means! Yikes!

    End-of-life? Not to my knowledge. Perhaps they are reworking the web site (fingers crossed). I grabbed all of the downloadable files last week, so am set in that regard.

    #2, I've seen this problem with some of my Asus boards, it's sensor faulty, it's not software.

    Ahhh. Do you think its okay to simply be ignored, or better to RMA the board?

    I would RMA the board since I have other PCs to use while it's gone.

    RMA if you can, the tricky part is only happen occasional, it's come and go.
    First you should request a tech support from Asus. The technician will advise you all the troubleshooting tips, then report back that you've tried all his/her suggestions but no luck. Now request RMA ticket and provide them the tech support case #, this way you can avoid them to send back your old board if they can't find the problem after they test it.
