I bought the GENE-Z and sold my P8P67 Pro.
I think there is a major mistake or design flaw in the Bios Setup of the GENE-Z.
VCCSA and VCCIO got no sperate settings. When i set VCCIO VCCSA gets the same value.
VCCIO value is way higher than VCCSA and it goes over Intel recommendations for VCCSA ...
Please bring up a bios fix for this ASAP.
We need to be able to enter different values for VCCSA and VCCIO.

Thanks for the detailed reply - so it is not going to be fixed by a bios update ?!
Then i am sorry to say that - but i will return the board to the dealer since this is a no go for me.
I have had more 6 different 1155 boards so far and i don't like the idea of setting VCCSA +0,125 over the regular value.
I have never needed more than 0.95 to get over 5GHz with DDR3-1866-2133.

Raja have you read the electrical specification for Intel Sandy Bridge ?
The Max Voltage for VCCSA has been specified by intel to 0.971.
You can read that from table 7-6 in Intel Document Number 324641-001
(2nd Generation Intel Core Processor Family Desktop Datasheet Volume 1)
So your board is per default running my CPU way over Intel electrical specification.
Will ASUS provide me a new CPU when your Board fries it by running it out of specification by default and there is no way to change that ?
