Asus Maximus VI Hero Time/ Clock Issue

Hi all, last year in June, I purchased an Asus Maximus VI Hero motherboard. The past few weeks, i've noticed that the time on my computer is off-whenever I let my computer go to sleep or shutdown, the clock stops at that time and upon waking it up or booting it up, the clock continues as if no time has passed. I have not had this issue before and I've already checked to see if it is a Windows 8 issue (Win8 is NOT my favorite OS for gaming, as it has so many software issues, in my opinion). Apparently, my computer is reading off the motherboard clock and every time I sync the clock in Win8 with a time server, I continue to have the same problem after shutting down or putting the computer to sleep. I've run system maintenance already and I've changed time servers, but it doesn't seem to be working. I checked with my friends who have computers running Win8, but they are not having that issue. They've also recommended replacing the battery, but its a right pain in the donkey for me, as I have a gigantic Noctua heatsink and two fans that I would need to remove to access the battery. I've also tried flashing BIOS with an update, but the problem is still occurring. Also, I'm worried that I would lose my current BIOS settings if I remove the battery. Any suggestions? Thanks.

It's late for me but if I've followed your problem correctly there's a thread about the time clock issue at Asus ROG and here's the link ... and sadly yup it's resolved among other things by clearing the Cmos... hope this link is useful Cheer

I had this problem too.... Easy to fix... remove the CMOS battery and the clock will be ok...Test your battery. It's supposed to be 3 volts.... replace IF necessary... Unfortunately you will loose your BIOS setting. I have windows 7...
