    Default Gigabyte GA-EX58-Extreme clock issue


    I'm running a non-overclocked EX58-Extreme (F9h BIOS) with a Core i7 D0 and 6 GB Kingston HyperX KHX12800D3LLK3/6GX and Windows 7 x64 RC. I have a rather peculiar issue with I have no experience with, so hence my post here.

    The clock of the motherboard is running too slow. WAY too slow. It lapses behind ~40ms per minute / about a minute per day.

    This behavior is causing all sorts of issues, most notably problems watching television using my PCI DVB-C card. It starts skipping because the DVB-C clock signal is off too much and the buffers fill up. It also forces me to resync the clock with Internet every hour (but that doesn't help the skipping).

    My question is, how do I fix it? Is there an option in the BIOS somewhere? And what can cause this issue? System is non-overclocked, never has been overclocked (yet). Only thing I can imagine that may cause such an issue is the Gigabyte DES tool. Or that I set HPET timer to 64bit (seemed logical with an 64bit OS).

    In any case, I'm clueless, any help is appreciated.

    You may need to replace your CMOS battery. If you have another PC laying around, try it's battery and see if the time is kept better.

    You can change the time in the BIOS if you need to, I mean if it is always wrong, but is not loosing time that is. To adjust current time go into Standard CMOS Settings page of the BIOS and adjust the time. If it is loosing time, getting slower each day, then you need a new CMOS battery or to leave your PC Plugged in always if you are unplugging it.

    Thanx for the responses. It was similar with older BIOS's, though I'm not sure of all versions.

    CMOS battery is ok. PC is always plugged in and voltage is good.

    With a bit of trying things out, I found the largest culprit to be Gigabyte DES. If I turn it off, the clock is still too slow, but only about 0.5ms per minute.

    Is there a place I can report that as a bug in the current version? Or is it hardware related?
