Have you tried updating the BIOS to 0501?

Ah good, I noticed you removed the Z68 from the P67 thread and was glad to see this one created already. The people could use a huge wealth of information for Z68 like you gave us from P67 already. This is the thread that I saw that made me think this thread was needed.
