versus B.) which ones might make things worse for you

 

by this I mean, I'm sticking with my Intel gen2 core i7 2600K sandy-bridge CPU chip and I'm sticking with MS Windows 7 Pro ... no need or desire for me to upgrade to a gen3 Ivy-Bridge CPU Chip nor Windows 8 ... yet several of the BIOS and Drivers updates are more so specialized or geared for the next gen IB chips, and WIN 8 ... and while they claim to be backwards compatible, I think it was Coderush that mentioned some people had found the newest BIOS' and newest Intel Management Engine Drivers ( ME8 over ME7 now ) actually hurt their performance and/or system configurations to the point where someone like myself (sticking with my Intel gen2 core i7 2600K sandy-bridge CPU chip and I'm sticking with MS Windows 7 Pro) might be better off using a slightly older BIOS, though newer than #0208 ... and sticking with the ME7 Drivers rather than the ME8 version, etc.

 

So kinda long story short I ended up currently running ...

 

- BIOS #0902

- Intel INF Driver 9.3.0.1021

- Intel ME Driver 7.1.21.1134 ... (I can't seem to upgrade to the newer 7.1.40.1161 driver for some reason ? and I decided not to upgrade to ME8's 8.1.0.1248)

- Intel HD Graphics Media Accelerator driver 8.15.10.2761

- Realtek HD On-Board Audio Driver 6.0.1.6662 R2.70

- Intel Gigabit Network Ethernet Driver 17.3 (though I can't verify that this driver version actually installed ?)

- ASMedia USB 3 Drivers 1.16.1.0

- JMicron JMB36X Controller Driver R1.17.63.1

- Intel RST driver 11.2.0.1006

 

... and it ended up giving me BSOD when gaming @ the 4.6 GHz CPU level up boost OC, I had to back it down to 4.2 GHz to run stable without knowing how to adjust my voltages and what not, so I was wondering if others had issues also, or would other Driver / BIOS combinations maybe work out better for my i7 2600K SB chip and Win 7 Pro ? headscratch.gif

I have made a small but interesting update for FTK for people who like to experiment with different versions of ME and GbE firmwares and wish to go back if new versions of them are crappy.
Now you can use any ASUS BIOS with ME and/or GbE firmwares as a source of them. Just download BIOS file, copy to FTK/Win32 or FTK/Win64 folder, rename it to bios.bin and update your ME and/or GbE by running upd_me.bat and/or upd_gbe.bat as administrator.
For example, I have just updated ME version to 8.1.0.1248 and GbE version to 0.15 on my Maximus IV Gene-Z using latest BIOS file for ASUS Maximus V Gene.
If you like to downgrade ME and/or GbE, use BIOS file with older versions the same way.
Don't forget to remove power cord for 30 second before starting your PC after that update, it is needed for firmwares to reinitialize properly.
As usual FTK can be downloaded from that google-translated post.
Please post your results of using that updating method. As for me, I can't see any difference between GbE 0.13 and GbE 0.15, and i can see very little difference between ME 8.0 and ME 8.1, but I think that updating method may be useful, if ASUS will not provide ME and/or GbE updates for old boards and will do it for new ones.

Do you need some help with an OC? Im pretty sure EVERY 2600k will do 4.5ghz so we can tweek things around. The BSOD was probably voltage related but I dont like to use the preset settings when overclocking.

Yeppers redface.gif long story short ... I told y'all I was a noob to this ... I had, or so I thought, a stable 4.6 GHz using the Auto Turbo Boost Multiplier with the original #0208 BIOS ... after the BIOS and Driver updates I can't seem to get it back w/o voltage adjustments ? I noticed the factory default voltages got altered some with the BIOS update, so I'm sure that has something to do with it but the voltages seemed to go UP slightly and my OC went down slightly ?  headscratch.gif

Sorry for the delay, busy work day and just finished dinner. I was gonna PM you but figured others might get something from it as well.

-First things first. I would hit f5 in bios to load the optimized defaults.
-In overclock tuner where you selected 4.6ghz select manual. If your memory has an XMP profile load it up, if not make sure the timings are in the ballpark along with voltage.
-Next enter the cpu performance option and select a multiplier of 46. Combined with the BLK frequence of 100 (100x46)= 4600mhz (4.6ghz)
-After all this enter the digi+ power control area, for vcore load line calibration select 75% (high). This will make sure the voltage you select for the cpu wont drop/dip under load, which can make the cpu unstable. Less that 75% I get voltage drop, and more than 75% it starts to add more voltage than I selected for the cpu.
-Lets set the cpu voltage now. You mentioned you were once "stable" with the stock 4.6ghz setting, on my mobo the asus oc sets it to 1.35v, you can try that but personally I like to start low and work my way up. my 2700k takes 1.37v to be stable at 4.8ghz, if your lucky you might need less that 1.35v but regardless 1.35v wouldnt hurt, but if you find it stable with less you will be rewarded with cooler temps.
-
-At this point you should be able to boot and try things out, I would run a benchmark like cinebench r11 to do a quick test, if it doesnt crash jump into prime and stress test it. I dont think 24hrs is needed but MANY MANY people here swear by it. TO be stable in my experience and for gaming I find 2hrs on blend and 1hr on 1344FFT and 1792FFT to be good. MY overclock has survived 8+hrs folding with prime testing like I mentioned.
-
-If your unstable or if you want to speed things up, enable internal PLL overvolt on the main screen. I need it for 4,8ghz and asus says usually anything over 4.5ghz will need it.

Im going to jump into the bios again and make sure I used all the correct terminology. I also have to see how I have my power settings. Personally I leave mine so it stays at 4.8ghz and max voltage constantly. Really it doesnt hurt since there isnt a load and I have been lazy to set offset votlage again, which is nice since it lowers voltage when at idle. I havent noticed cooler temps though so thats why I havent gotten around to enabling it again.

edit:
corrected the terminology for load line calibration (duh been a while lol). I checked my power state settings and all on auto, I personally havent had issues but some can get a BSOD when the pc is at idle if one of them is on with all the others....I havent experienced that but my pc shuts down at night. It runs idle all day durring weekends and no issues. but keep that in mind, if you get a bsod when at IDLE, look here in the main post:

thinking.gif what DO you have in place of the one's you STRIKED through ? headscratch.gif or are you saying you DO NOT have ANY Intel Management Engine Driver ? (I think there's a default that came on the Board/BIOS no ?) ... I guess you may not need the IRST driver, but doens't the JMicron JMB36X Controller Driver handle the non-Intel SATA ports ? you need that one don't you ?

Thanks so much for all that info, will look it over, what BIOS and drivers are you running might I ask, because like I said it seemed to make a difference with MY OC'ing results. jealoussmiley.gif

I guess you may not need the IRST driver, but doens't the JMicron JMB36X Controller Driver handle the non-Intel SATA ports ? you need that one don't you ?

The JMicron controls the IDE function and you can actually turn it off in the bios, which I did. Because I only have SATA devices.
And no I haven't installed any Intel Management driver, as I am god admin; I manage my own computer biggrin.gif

Thanks so much for all that info, will look it over, what BIOS and drivers are you running might I ask, because like I said it seemed to make a difference with MY OC'ing results. jealoussmiley.gif

Unless you guys have exactly the same hardware and software, your OC results will always be a little different.

Interesting ... learning some new stuff here ... so I also only have SATA drives 2 SSD's, 1 HDD, and 2 optical drives, nothing running on IDE ... so you're saying I don't need the JMicron JMB36X controller driver at all ? It dosn't effect the SATA ports at all ? hmmsmiley02.gif I was somehow under the impression that the Intell z68 chip controlled the RED SATA III ports, but the JMicron JMB36X controlled the other 4 black SATA II ports ? redface.gif

 

And then WHAT does the Intel Management Engine DO ? that YOU manage to do instead of having IT do it ? headscratch.gif or would I need it because of the Intel RST and Intel SRT using the 2nd SSD as a Cache for the HDD ?

Are you sure about that ? I think the JMicron controller actually drives the two eSATA ports. It can be configured in IDE or AHCI mode like the Intel controller in the bios too smile.gif

There's no harm in shutting it off if you don't use eSATA though, probably helps with the POST times as well.

Edit : took a look in the BIOS and there's no mention of IDE/AHCI for the JMicron, my bad redface.gif
However the manual confirms (under Specifications > Storage) the controller is only for eSATA
