The 212 Evo is seated properly on the cpu. I ran that Prime program for a few hours (at stock speeds) and didn't have any over-heating issues that I noticed. I had it set to XMP as well, yet still the same issues when trying to manually oc.

Uninstalling it doesn't exactly work. lol It hangs. In the uninstall option the only thing that you can select is their SuperSpeed USB 3.0 program they implement in AI Suite, so not the full program itself. It's very strange. I've never had an issue uninstalling any program ever.

On the other hand, setting the oc in the bios to to 'auto' (which I believe said isn't the optimal way to go) didn't give me any issues at all.

Catalyst 11.10 is being released next week, so I'll do a fresh Windows install without adding AI Suite in.

@ney2x

What is the Gbe firmware included in the Gigabyte download link you've posted above?

I gave this a go too, not completely, just to the 'comparing the saves' as I wanted to see what it did. It worked fine and the files matched but after it completed, my Win7 said there was a hardware change and told me I had to re-activate it again. Little odd, but it activated again ok.

I used the one under Windows (not DOS).

Can't answer you, cause me always flash under DOS (it's the safest way). In windows environment, there are times some anti-virus and some applications causes to fail flashing.

Just an update, it also asked me to re-activate Office 2010..so Microsoft thinks something changed. I don't think it's normal, all I did was take a backup. But again, it all works.

Thanks for the info. So as a recap which of the firmwares are updateable?

1.) BIOS
2.) MEI Firmware
3.) IRST OROM that's usually included with the BIOS update
4.) GBe (Intel LAN) firmware
5.) EC Firmware

??

Just an update. BIOS 0801 of P8Z68-V and PRO are gone from here , I think they will release another beta bios this week.

And for the P8Z68-V, wasn't the beta bios 0901? It's now called 0902, has the same date and spec as 0901 did but the beta tag is taken off. Strange. Anyway, looking forward to a new bios update. Thanks for the info ney2x.
