SimpleTech thanks I was able to over clock to 3.7 so far, haven't tried the next step up.

The intel website states that lastest INF and intel ME drivers posted here are intended for X79 boards. I don't get it. If they can be used with Z68, why does the intel site not suggest these ones?

Here's a question.. if I disable IGPU and Firewire in bios, will that save me power or is it a waste of time?

Hey guys i have a problem with my P8Z68 v-pro motherboard. Recently i've had some weird problems with some beeping sounds and decided to update from 0706 to the latest 0801 BIOS version.

However, since the update i have been unable to get a stable overclock equal to my old one at the 0706 version. Before i was able to run 4.6 ghz rock solid but now i cant get it to go past the "starting windows" no matter what i do (when overclocked at 4.5 or 4.6 that is)... Anyone got any ideas what might be the problem?

Best regards

Rasmus

I'm at Windows 7 x64, do I need to disable them all and help with boot times?

Would keeping the USB/USB 3.0 Legacy Support enabled still use the driver installed in Windows 7 or will it override and use the built-in USB drivers in the motherboard?

How about EHCI Hand-off?

Any answer to my question here?

OK Im looking at getting the P8Z68-V Pro Motherboard however I am a bit concerned I am getting 2 GTX 580 Super Overclocks(Gigabyte) and I also wanna fit a ASUS Xonar Essence STX will that work? or will I run out of space?

Should work great. What problem did you anticipate? Because as I see it that is two dual slot GPUs and with the triple slot spacing on that board you would have an open slot for them to breath in between them, which is ideal, and then a PCIe x1 sound card above them.

No the B3 refers to the chipset revision that had to be done a while ago to the motherboards for a bug. I don't think I've seen the Gen3 boards available for sale yet but they would be called Gen3 or pro B3 Gen3 not just B3.
