ASUS ROG Maximus Hero XII - How to properly configure for 1st time PC Build?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Does this motherboard automatically use the AI to overclock your system? I want my newly built PC to run in stock settings without any overclocking applied to CPU/RAM, etc. I heard the ASUS Rog Maximus Hero motherboards come from the factory with this AI overclock mode enabled by default. If so, how can I configure the BIOS so that it loads my machine up in a vanilla state without any tweaks applied?

you have to check under tuning in bios. and you will find something called enforce factory limits. 

and don't turn on XMP

Thanks, I want my first boot up into Windows to be completely free of any tweaks. After I set everything up, then I will play with the overclock settings. I want to be sure my system is running stable first in a vanilla state before applying tweaks.

Set XMP

Remove Multicore Enhancement.

Like usual.

 

I usually use der8auer videos for my Hero boards but non yet.

 

If you have a i5 10600K this video may be interesting(355).

When you get the system put together, be sure to follow instructions and clear the cmos. Should be a swith on the IO panel. Hold that for 10 seconds or so.

 

Its quite normal for the cpu to boost by itself.

 

Just be sure your cooler is secure, you should be fine.

 

GL!

Set XMP or not? Conflicting info here. If yes, then what XMP profile or setting should I use? I'm not familiar with ASUS ROG Maximus Hero motherboard bios settings yet. This will be my first.

What's the purpose of clearing the CMOS on a brand new motherboard? I thought this is only necessary if you want to reset your mobo back to it's default factory settings.

Cause you dont know what cpu is tested and like I had mentioned, its a sure way to be sure the bios is ar defaults on first post.

After you swap ram. Clear cmos

New processor, clear cmos.

Update bios.... Again should clear cmos.

And so forth.....
