Hey guys!

I was just wondering if it is absolutely necessary that I reset the CMOS battery after i did the BIOS update, only reason i ask is because the motherboard has the thermal armor, I'd have to remove the whole thing to reset it.

thank you in advance :D

Hi, No, only if experiencing issues.
However, the board has a CLR CMOS jumper. Check the manual for how to use it.

when i called asus, because i was experiencing higher CPU temps (from 27 idle to 32 idle), they said to reset the CMOS battery. should that fix it? I've tried everything else.

And thank you!!! I'm looking at the manual now :D

How much memory installed, how many RAM sticks, running them in XMP mode? Are you overclocking? Are there applications running in background? 32 is not high. The CPU temp depends on different factors.

If 32 GB, then I assume all RAM slots occupied. Try running with only one RAM stick inserted and check the temperature.
