Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 122

post #1211 of 1418
Hi all, not sure if this has already been asked.

I have a P8Z68-V Gen3 and I'm wondering the following: if I plug a case fan to the mobo CHA_FAN1 or CHA_FAN2, this fan is supposed to be controlled by Q-fan in the bios (don't want to install AI Suite, thx). The manual seems to say that the fan speed will vary accordingly to the 'chassis temperature". Using HWInfo i see five temps that could be used: they are labeled "Motherboard", "Auxiliary", "SYSTIN1", "SYSTIN2", "SYSTIN3". Which one is used by Q-fan ? Any idea ?

MaX.

P.S.
In case you're wondering, I was thinking is connecting some case fans to the mobo connector is a good idea, as my 2x6850 gets pretty hot with the fans @ min.

Anyone know how to downgrade the asmedia firmware on a p8z68-v pro gen 3? I think the newer firmware might be giving me problems. Or does anyone have the stock firmware file? I know i probably shouldn't have updated but oh well

Have you tried these, various versions.

currently using the latest from there(120816-02-02-06D), but theres 2 versions of the same one which is confusing, one says tool v1 and the other v2. I think i used tool v2. So far so good, but would have liked to return to the original one just in case

Yeah I remember that, can't remember which I had to use, probably the same as you.

I'm sure the original is older than "12220E" because I remember moving to this when I got my Z68 ages ago.

Hi everyone
Im a long time reader 1st time poster
Now to my problem. I just updated the Ai suite 2 to Version 1.02.20 the latest . I run 2 monitors the no 1 is the main screen and the 2nd is to watch my stats mostly temps on my cpu, motherboard and my gpu..Since i have updated the Ai sutie 2 (Version 1.02.20) when ever i start a game the Ai suite 2 moves over to the main screen and im unable to see my stats etc. iv never had this happen b4. Ive tried the older Version 1.01.40 same thing keeps move to the main screen when i start any game.
Im unable to find a older version then 1.01.40 .
I was running a older version then 1.01.40 but im not sure what it was.

Anyone had this problem??
Anyone know where i can find a older version then 1.01.40 ???

Hi,

Got a stupid question. In bios settings for each device like the marvel controller there is:

1. Enable Marvel Controller
2. Enable Option Rom

Whats the difference? Do you need the oprom enabled to use the device?

Thanks.

Quick question : are people here keeping all drivers/firmware up to date to the latest versions ??
talking about the ovious ones like audio/LAN and sata chipsets...

I have my PC now since march 2012 and everything is pretty up to date, but if you need to keep it really current you are updating like every 2 weeks...

Not sure if that is really needed, so thats why I'm seeking advice/experience from other users.
THX !

Yes, except the Asmedia USB 3.0 firmware and Intel Management Engine firmware. The former I don't trust to be compatible with my MB and the latter I don't think matters. I don't know if those can be rolled back.

It is not every two weeks though. I have rarely had an issues where I had to back out and most of the time the updates are improvements and sometimes significant performance improvements (like with RST drivers). If I can back out (e.g. with backups) I am usually game.

Thanks for your suggestions.
You also update the Intel INF Driver every time?
I mean this is probably just updated with new chipsets every time, so not needed to update when you got it working, right?
Where to check this what INF driver you have currently? (W7 Enterprise x64)
Thx again !
