I'll have to look into the bios downgrade when I get my new cpu. Going for lowest voltage here.

I don't know how to revert back to an older BIOS with these motherboards (if I remember correctly, ASUS made this very difficult).

It was hard to downgrade before but there is a tool now from coderush, IIRC, that makes this easy. How much higher of core voltage did you notice with the people that reported the same?


Coderush's guide was what I was thinking too. Here's the link to coderush on downgrading the BIOS:

I have heard from more than one person that their OC took more vcore after a BIOS upgrade. One of the reason I think coderush made this guide.

I am going to mount one of my case fans on my Hyper 212 Evo. It is a 3 pin connector, one of the fans that is on the side of an NZXT Phantom case. Is there a recommended spot on the board for this? And will I be able to configure the bios to see it as a CPU fan? I won't be able to check for a couple of weeks due to a cpu rma.
post #7754 of 9343

The only way for it to be recognized as a CPU fan is by connecting it to the "CPU_FAN" header.  So, I recommend just studying the fan headers and connecting it to the one that you feel most comfortable with.

That works, I figured that would be it. Dumb that there's no way for it recognize 2 cpu fans this day and age. Want to set up a push-pull function with my cooler.

The recognition begins at the header.  I mean, the motherboard doesn't know where your fan is installed; it just knows which headers have fans connected to them, and each header has a specific designation.  So if you connect a fan to the CPU_FAN header and then install it as a rear exhaust case fan, then it will still be seen as CPU fan due to which header it's connected to.

 

However, there's no right or wrong regarding what headers you use.  What's important is that you know what's connected to what.  ;)

I get that. Just wanted a way for the mobo to recognize and control 2 cpu fans. Guess I'll use a chassis fan spot.
Will the fan ramp up with the other though if I use a chassis fan header?

Yes you only have 2 zones you can control speed with and thats CPU or CHASSIS I have 2 Fans on my CPU & CPU OPT headers, then I have 5 Fans running off my Chassis headers both zones have different fan curves, I also used y-splitters to get the 5 fans working cause 2 fans are 0-700 Rpm (200mm) and 3 are 0-1300rpm (120-140mm)

I shall hopefully be joining this thread soon as I have bought a P8Z68-V (in fact, the GEN3 model, which I am oh so excited about as it will help me gain mega FPS with my GTX 460, clearly)

Anyway, Gigabyte appear to have messed up quite badly on their performance/overclocking models with the P67 and Z68 chipsets. I hear their Z77 boards are better but they're also far pricier than a similar model from any Z68 line, plus I have no plans to upgrade to Ivy so some features would be wasted.

It seems the Asus P8P67 and P8Z68-V (why the V anyway?) lines are tried and tested - I went for another Z68 model just to have that integrated graphics support there as a backup.

Look forward to receiving it and hopefully getting a proper stable overclock!

Does your mobo you're getting have a display port on it? My P8z68 Deluxe Gen3 doesn't have one, but it can access the iGPU. Lol
