The only difference is that the 3.1 uses a cheaper USB 3 controller in an effort to save ASUS some money. There is no benefit for the customer and the NEC USB 3 controllers that are in rev 3.0 boards are quite superior. Bigger numbers are a great way to mislead the customer.

I don't know if anyone else has had this happen to them, but I thought I'd enquire about it.

I had an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO motherboard that lasted for about 14 days before I got a VGA error and my motherboard had to be sent out to be replaced.

I'm expecting a replacement this week, but I'd just like to ask if there might be anything I'm doing wrong that caused this. I have an 850 watt PSU and the voltages were even across everything (I had a Crossfire setup, but I doubt pairing two HD Radeon 6950's had anything to do with it). Did I just get a bad board?

They are cheaper, but they are also supposed to be better and faster than the NEC controller. Any tests out yet?

Actually they're stated to be lesser or equal to the NEC controller with the old NEC drivers. The only benefit is the reduced cost. I'll post the link if I find it.

Still fighting to get my 2600K 5GHz stable with HT-Off. I know my problem is not Vcore related. I've tried many combinations, including lowering CPU PLL to 1.700v (Made it more unstable). Also tried 1.7125v with no success. So now I'm trying 1.8250v to see where that brings me.

Getting a Sandybridge stable at 5GHz seems to be a hard task...

This is getting more and more interesting... I've found one FFT that causes problems. The 1344KB FFT always makes it error on one of the cores or BSOD. So now I've just consentrated in that one, and it fails fast, each time. I'm trying everything else than upping Vcore.

Update: The 1344KB FFT actually failed after equal short time even if I upped the Vcore by two notches! Very interesting!

Update2: The 1344KB FFT would not let me pass even if I upped the Vcore from 1.46v (Even though 1.46v seems to work for most other FFT's) up to 1.49v at 100 x50! I've downed multi to x49 now, and now it seems fine. So it will be very interesting when I try 102.1 x49 = 5GHz! I suspect this is somehow related to my CPU and the x50 multi.

Update 3: Quoted from the Sandy Stable Club:

I've even tried all the way up to 1.49v Vcore only running 1344KB - 1344KB and 6000MB. It fails fast. I've even tried 49 x102.1 to rule out the multi.

This is also true at lower speeds, this particular FFT requires alot of Vcore. If one run the usual Preset of 15 minutes per FFT, this particular FFT should show up after about 3 hours + according to my calculations.

I'm using this particular FFT at 4.9GHz right now and so far it seems good at about 1.432v Vcore. This is using + 0.060 Offset and LLC at Ultra high. + 0.040 Offset failed fast at this FFT. HT is disabled in all these tests. If it holds at 1.432v Vcore at 4.9GHz, and my CPU will not pass this particular FFT at 5GHz even at 1.48v - 1.49v (Fails fast on 1344KB - 1344KB but can go for hours on other FFT's with 1.46v Vcore.) Vcore, my CPU is not good for 5GHz.

I would like others to try this particular FFT, to see if they also find this one much harder than any other FFT. If so, we may have a breakthrough as to do a very fast test before starting the usual preset. This will save us ALOT of time!

Select Blend Custom and type in 1344 - 1344 and type in as much RAM as you can.

Update: It is doing fine at 1.432v Vcore and 4.9GHz. It will not at 5GHz and upto 1.49v Vcore. I've even tried about 4.995MHz, failed there also. So it seems I have some kind of wall close to 5GHz, but only with the 1344 - 1344 FFT.

Let it be known that I am finally on a quad core!

It's not complete yet, I'm to purchase a new case, get a proper heatsink and overclock it.
My VID I think is 1.161v.. Haven't really checked. And well.

The cable management? That's the best I can do without drilling holes through my 300, which, if I don't push through with my case upgrade, might be very likely. |3

PS. Sorry about the poor lighting, maybe I should purchase some translucent paper to put around my lamp.

Wow... I just swapped over my old parts with the new Asus p867 pro and the 2500k processor, and I have Witcher 2 running at 60 FPS, on max setting, constantly without even over clocking. That's amazing. My EVGA 58 FTW with a 930 at 4.2GHz was only hitting 50 or so on average on the same game. I'm stunned. I've never seen a MOBO/CPU combo make this much difference without overclock. I can't imagine what this will do at 4.8.

Sandybridge was one of those 'big jumps' in technology you know

Hi everyone. New to this thread so I'm not sure if this has come up yet but I DID do a search with no results.

I have the P67 Deluxe and am trying to make use of my Realtek LAN port. I believe I can set it to share my internet connection if I wire it up to another pc?

Has anyone here done this successfully, and if so, how do I go about doing it?

TIA
