Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 110

post #1091 of 1418
Okay, I haven't been in the forums for some time due to work, school, etc., but referencing the Maximus IV Extreme-Z drivers, etc from Page #1:
1. Are those all relevant to 64bit Win7?
2. Or are they applicable regardless of the software version (32 or 64)?

Thanks! smile.gif


Edit: NVM...I see that there are varying "flavors" and I'll just have to get what I can get

Re: Driver: Intel MEI & ME Version 8.1.10.1300 8.1.10.1286 &

MessageOf mdm "October 18, 2012, 16:53
There are many things not needed dan the download.
I easily built a tool using the "old" ASUS pack by putting new FWUpdLcl.exe, and FWUpdLcl64.exe 8.1.10.1286.BIN, and voila, it automatically flashes! : D

Intel ME 8.1.10.1286 - FW.7z
(1.51 million) Downloaded 179 times

And the driver is like dab.

Maybe remove everything else that make little confusion in the pack, and leave the FW (version automatic tool?) And driver?

Thread Starter 
Since the driver also includes the firmware pack, I figured it was unnecessary to have two separate ones (I posted both for memory sake).

Atheros Bluetooth driver has been updated to 8.0.0.212.
post #1095 of 1418
Was able to update the ASMedia USB 3.0 driver to 1.16.2.0 on my P8Z68-V Pro/GEN3 rig ...
... I couldn't update to driver version 1.16.1.0 - don't know why ...
... but all is good with 1.16.2.0 update - both ASMedia XHCI Controllers are there ... thumb.gif

Do you guys recommend to downgrade my board's BIOS to the initial release? I am on the latest version.

I do not know if that is so. Did you find some evidence for that on some forum with the BIOS's in question? What about your own results? If the BIOS you have has no issues besides the maybe of the older being a better overclocker, then you may want to stay with what you have.

Also, typically a later BIOS should have better stability and OC ability than an earlier version - unless they messed something up. Have you heard that your newer BIOS was messed up somewhere?

I read what I'm saying in the Asus Z68 official lounge and at hardforum but I can't give a link right now since I don't know what exact post of a member is that. Yeah, newer BIOSes "typically" and "should" have better stability and OC capability than an earlier version but it seems that ASUS messed up on the newer BIOS releases especially when they updated from ME7 to ME8 (as I have read).
