post #6701 of 9343
the thing is i'm not really new to this, my gaming rig is at 4.8 and has been for over a year, and i was at a stable 5.2 on my other mobo until one of my VRM's fried, so now its out for RMA.

I reset the cmos, and nothing. I even left everything at stock (3.4 norm, 3.7 turbo). At 100% cpu usage, it stays at 3.4. something is not right....

I checked it from ASUS site "Intel® Z68 chipset :
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray
4 x SATA 3Gb/s port(s), blue
Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10
Support Intel® Smart Response Technology on 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family
JMicron® JMB362 controller : *3
1 x eSATA 3Gb/s port(s), red"

I have the ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 and I've read and re-read my mobo manual trying to find some mention of Marvell ports. Even in the UEFI BIOS there is no Marvell options. and the asus website spec tab only lists the JMicron® JMB362 controller. I guess mine doesn't even have Marvell ports? That the only conclusion I can come to. EDIT-Doh just saw your edit. Now I don't feel as stupid. I kept telling myself "there has to be Marvell ports here somewhere, you're doing it wrong!" lol. thumb.gif


not that you have not came to the same conclusion but I would add you should continue to use the Sata III 6g Intel port with that SSD

for best performance to answer your original Q

clear CMOS and reload "factory defaults" then see if you can use the OC scan tool in the BIOS to OC the chip. Just click on it and it will restart the PC. let it do its thing and then go into windows and see if it gave you an OC or not... That was what I did first time around my chip...then I started to play with the individual settings.


You will get serious help with OCing your board by reading the 1st three post in this thread. Once you have done so you will realize Overclocking the P67 or Z68 boards is mainly changing the CPU multi and not the Block. There will be other associated changes to the bios that you will need to make which are also illustrated there. Once you have a grasp on the methodology if you have trouble don't hesitate to ask and we will help.

I have a 2550k with no IGPU, so what's the point of the z68?? I have a dedicated graphics and going to be playing high-end gaming anyways.

True, but the z68 combines everything from the igpu side and the dedicated graphics side. Also, are those boards supporting PCIe 3.0 ?

That is the main reason. Although, that may not matter. In which case go for it. Was just wondering. To me it seems that the z68 boards are more future proof. Of course in high end pc building that does not mean much.

Also, this link should take you to a side by side comparison of the 2 boards I believe you were asking about originally....

http://usa.asus.com/Compare/

Good luck on making your choice.

At quick glance, the deluxe appears to have a few less features, but newer tech. Not sure. Just glanced at it.
