In the BIOS of my Asus P8z77-v, the real-time values for things such as CPU voltage, dram voltage etc are not visible, only the manual values I put in myself. They should be visible between the parameter name and the box where you type the value.
My user guide even shows the menus as having these values visible, but there's nothing there for me.
Is there a way to change this?

Which BIOS version is installed on the motherboard?
Could have been removed in later versions or the chip which is reading the values is defective.

Did you ever replace the CMOS battery ? On such old boards, a fresh battery could help, but be aware that after replacing it you will have to change all values again you altered before.

I haven't replaced the CMOS, and am sure I have the most recent bios (2016), but now I can't pass POST and have the RAM led stuck on red (getting it to do the memok checks doesn't do anything). So unless clearing the RTC RAM using the on-board jumper may fix this, I'm probably now looking at bad RAM/novo, so I guess it's off to my local IT expert for a diagnosis.
Kinda expected this to happen around this time lol, like you said, it's an old PC and has been kicking for over 9 years now XD

Not anymore, after a day of pc not even getting past post, and then re-testing memory (when a week ago tests said it was fine) I've concluded it's faulty ram that's causing all my bsods and crashes. Funny timing, I post here asking about one issue & then immediately get hit with all this haha. Ah well, thread closed :p
