Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 19

post #181 of 1418
Thanks for this thread. I'm only halfway through it, but have a question about the drivers for the P8Z68V Pro on page 1. The link for the IRST drivers go to a French site. Sadly, my French is too far in the past for me to intelligently read that page. When I go to Intel's site for the IRST drivers, the only link is to 10.6.0.1022 drivers.

Is there a link to an English site with the 10.6.2.1001 drivers?

I just bought an asus z68-v motherboard and put my new rig together last night. Everythings working fine but I just have a few questions.

1) Should I download all of the new drivers listed on the first page for my mobo now?

2) Also some of them have two drivers (i.e. the chipset field), I'm guessing I download both?

3) Lastly I was told to do these drivers updates on the uefi bios rather than when booted into windows, true or doesn't matter?

Updated the links, sorry about that. Sometimes Station-Drivers will change their URL a tiny bit which causing it to forward to their main site.

1. Most of them are needed. Of course if you're using a dedicated sound card, don't use the onboard audio drivers and the same goes if you're using a dedicated video card. If you're not bluetooth or third-party SATA controller (JMicron), you can disable that in the UEFI and thus not needing to use any drivers at all.

2. That is correct.

3. It really doesn't matter but do it in the UEFI because there are less chances of bricking your board.

Hey ST,

I used your quick guide on post 107 and my P8Z68V Pro running BIOS 0902 posted fine, ran IBT fine (max temps), and ran P95 for 70 minutes fine (until I terminated the test.) I really just wanted to play a bit and see what it would do. 1.32v worked fine on my cpu. I may play some more and see if I can reduce that voltage some more when I have some time.

Checking CPU-Z, it looks like the processor stays at 45x regardless of the load. I was expecting speedstep to adjust it based on the load.



Quick question from a post above: what is this updating of drivers from within UEFI? What is that about? I am unfamiliar with loading drivers except in Windows.

Updating my drivers, I'm getting an alert after a restart that says: "Windows cannot find U3Boostsvr64.exe." Any idea what this is all about? Google search turns up nothing.

Change C1E and Speedstep to "Enabled" instead of "Auto". This will solve your problem. Hope that helps

Hey thanks for the tip!

Now to solve the U3boostsvr64 issue....

Edit: update.

U3boost issue was resolved by an uninstall and reinstall of AISuite II.

Regarding the speedstep issue above, I checked my BIOS (0902) and under:
AiTweaker\\CPU power management
-Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology has an option of enabled or disabled. It was enabled.

Under:
Advanced\\CPU configuration
- Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology - again options are enabled/disabled. It was enabled.
-C1E was in auto. I changed it to enabled.

Now my processor seems to be speedstepping as expected. Looks like the C1E being changed to enabled was all it took. But I'm curious why the Speedstep option seems to be found in two places in BIOS. ??

Running at a 45x multiplier and 1.32v is generating idle temps in the upper 20s to the mid 30s across the cores. Max temps in normal operations seem to top out in the mid-upper 50s on the hottest core. Ambient temp is about 21*C/70*F.

I have yet to take the time to see if I can reduce the Vcore below 1.32v and keep stability up.

Quick question: I was d/l the new drivers on page 1 of this thread for a new build I'm getting ready to do on an Asus P8Z68V. I compared the file size of the IRST drivers to those from the Asus d/l site. Wow. Why are they so different?

The file here is a fraction of the zipped file from Asus:

Just installed all my parts for a newish system ... been awhile since I have done this and it took me quite awhile - had a few bumps.
Lots of drivers - as far as the irst - there is actually a alpha newer version on station that Im using; but not noticing any difference between using the driver and not (speed tested).

One question; are people installing the ai suite? If so is it useful to OC that way etc? ... or better to just use the bios.

I installed it even though people said not to. I've found it incredibly useful:

1-Bios Flash feature works like a charm
2-I used the voltage monitor/recorder to debug a PSU problem I had with my unit's +3.3v rail
3-Before I got a fan controller, the Fan Xpert program was pretty handy to help controlling all the silly 3-pin fans i have in my rig
