Hi...First thing I did when I got the board up and running was to update it to the latest bios which is 0805. The ASUS boards have to be the easiest boards to update bios with. A push of a few keys and in less than a second it's updated.

I almost won a Gigabyte Overclocking contest awhile ago. People started entering who had phase units and knocked me out of it. I had a Q6600, I can't remember what I had for the overclock but it was the highest up until the end when the phase units joined and knocked me out lol.
God I was pissed lol. It was winter so I had my unit out side and the cables run in to the house lol.

OMG, that's funny. I'm near Buffalo, NY and it gets extremely cold here and one winter I was thinking the same thing, stick the build outside and go nuts. I think it was like -8 to -14F for a couple of days, I think that would have kept the CPU cold enough...lol...(especially with a couple feet of snow that would have built up on top of it...talk about water cooled...) biggrin.gif

Do you guys know why some Drivers have TWO setup.exe's ?

USB 3.0 ASMedia Driver,
AI Suite II Driver,
Bluetooth Atheros AR3011:


AsusSetup.exe
Setup.exe

..

What is AsusSetup.exe?

Usually there's a setup file that will show the asus GUI and have a selection list that will link to other Asus setup files, such as one for drivers, one for the AI suite, one for USB 3.0, and so on. The other setup is the individual installer for the specific component in the directory you're in. (And this one is the one called by the first installer to run.)

That's been my experience with the Asus setups.

Having nothing but trouble with my new ASUS P8Z68-V board. About to RMA it, but wanted to see if maybe anyone had any ideas first.

i5 2500K and Corsair CMX8GX3M2B1600C9 (DDR3-1600 1.5v) installed.

First issue I noticed was legacy keyboard support not working. Even without any other USB devices plugged in the USB keyboard (and I tried 3 different ones) would sometimes not work.

Next issue the motherboard sensors seemed a bit goofy. Using Open Hardware Monitor, I noticed that sometimes and extra CPU temp sensor would show up. At first I figured it was the program. But it also seems like my CPU fan will slow down when this extra CPU sensor shows up, and so my real CPU core temps start rising due to the low CPU fan RPM. Made me afraid to Prime95 the motherboard because of this.

I dragged some icons onto my desktop. Later on I realized this icons were gone. If I look in the \Users\...\Desktop\ folder I could see those icons, they aren't hidden, but I don't see them on the desktop. Not sure if it's related to my motherboard issue, and didn't think much of at the time.

About every 2 or 3 reboots some of my USB devices would show up as new hardware again, even though they hadn't been unplugged. Even had one of my SATA hard drives show up again as a new device.

Sometimes one of the SATA drives wants to run a chkdsk when Windows starts up. And a large number of orphaned files are found (or so say the dialog). I've been using the drive with my previous motherboard and believe it's fine. And what is weird is every few reboots it'll come up again and again claim to find the exact same errors. Seems peculiar.

Also when I try to run some recently downloaded apps from a different hard drive, I get an error that the EXE file is not a valid WIndows program. If I redownload the file, it works fine. Seems curious.

And then things finally went south when logged in after a reboot and got a message from ASUS AI that there was an access violation error. I click OK and the app close. I tried to run another app and got another access violation error. I tried to uninstall ASUS Tools and got an Access Violation error. Some apps seem to work, while some don't. So I tried a system restore back a few hours. And still had the same problems.

So I thought maybe some of these issues are related to a bad OS install. I booted from my Windows 7 DVD and tried to reinstall, but for some reason not all my drives are showing up. However the one I need is there, so I tried to proceed only to get an error that I can't install WIndows do this drive. I deleted all the partitions on the drive and tried again and still can't install WIndows.

*sigh* Oh crap. I can't believe all these issues I'm having. I put my old P45 motherboard back in, with all the other same hardware (plus my Q9550 and DDR2 memory) and everything is back and running smooth. No USB issues, no more issues with any of my hard drives.


So is it just a bad board. Anything I could do?

The board has a BIOS version of 0301. I reflashed that same BIOS (it's the latest on ASUS's website). I reset the BIOS settings to factory defaults.

@Ravynmagi

I would say that you have a bad motherboard or possibly are in dire need of a BIOS update that may not be available. Given that everything works wonderfully in your other motherboard, you can eliminate them as variables and know that it's either your motherboard or BIOS settings.

One thing you could do is try disabling everything possible in your BIOS and then adding one feature at a time to determine which element is unstable.

There is also the possibility that your RAM is incompatible with your new motherboard. Do you have any other RAM to test with? Is your RAM on the Qualified Vendor List for that motherboard?

If you can afford it, you might want to pick up the least expensive RAM available that is on the Qualified Vendor List (or borrow some if you can) to verify that it's not just an incompatibility issue. If it's not a RAM compatibility issue, then I'd fall back on a bad BIOS (or simply that there is no good BIOS available) or it's a bad motherboard.

I've got or had at the moment, a P8Z68-V Pro Gen 3 and I was having some issues with it. Didn't like any RAM in the B1 or B2 slots. Bios kept reverting some of the settings to default. Some of my HDD would show up as new devices after a reboot. I finally got fed up and RMA'd the board. Found out there was a broken pin on the board. Unfortunately I'm being blamed for the broken pin and I am currently waiting on what the decision will be regarding the board as I flatly refuse to pay ASUS $90 to fix the board as I am 100% sure I did not break the pin. Not sure how it got broken but I was way to careful to have done it myself.

You might want to check over the board CPU pins and see if any are bent or even broken. Either way you should RMA the board if all the hardware works on your old board.

Trying to edit this thread... Is it not possible to choose text color without knowing the color code?? And is there no choice for fonts anymore?? This is ridiculous compared to the old forum... mad.gif

I had alot of different colors for the different P8P67/P8Z68 owners in the members list, this new forum is making it hopeless for me.

Yeah the colorshere aren't so great. I noticed it the most in signatures where colors in the message itself would work but in signatures it's all default or blue.

 

EDIT: You can go to preferences and enable the Rich Text Format editing instead of the BB code format. This is a rainbow made in the rich text format editing mode and it worked ok. Size seems to work ok  although I don't see a font method. Oh well.

 

You get the idea. it can be done. Just click on the preferences button right next to the search this thread and subscribe options.
