Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 3

post #21 of 1358
updated bios 0651 on p8z68-v pro , cpu reads -10 degrees then normal.

I cannot downgrade back to 0501 it gives me error "image outdated"

keep up good work on updated bios and drivers for z68 series

wish someday have a white mouse cursor in the bios instead of that green one...

I think it's because there aren't many benefits to switching from P67 to Z68. I got Z68 for the fact that it was cheap and I needed something with onboard video ports.

Hello all, I got a Asus P8Z68-V Pro Mobo as well smile.gif

I need some Overclocking help please!! Hope this is the correct Post for this, if not please move me.

I got an I7 2600k with a Corsair H60 Hydro Cooler. My system runs around mid 30s when not being used and when gaming mid 40s - mid 50s. I never seen it go over 60 degrees yet and its running at default speed 3.4ghz.

I read about users overclocking the CPU to over 5ghz. What would you guys recommend I try first and what should I change my voltage settings too? I never did the overclocking thing before so please treat me as a noob wink.gif

I also got the following RAM G.SKILL Ripjaws X + Fan Series DDR3 2133MHz (PC3-17000) 8GB (2x4GB) Dual Channel Kit

I got a Coolermaster 850 W PS as well.
and I have the Fan installed. I could really use some help with trying to overclock the Ram as well so please give me some settings for my board so I can run some tests!

I’ve gone on and on and on about this board. I’ll try and keep this concise as a result. Overclocking the P8Z68-V Pro was identical to overclocking boards from the P8P67 family and that’s a good thing. Essentially all I had to do in order to reach 5GHz was to set the load-line calibration to Ultra High and set the CPU-PLL overvoltage option to enabled in BIOS. From there I simply had to find voltages that worked. Increasing my CPU voltage to 1.425v and my CPU PLL voltage to 1.95v were all I needed for stability using a 50x multiplier. Beyond that I had temperature issues and the voltage needed to go up, but stability wasn’t achievable. Memory support worked as it should. I was able to reach the full DDR3 1600MHz potential with my RAM. Though I couldn’t reach the next supported speed of DDR3 1866MHz. I can on some boards but usually they are X58 boards and that’s still a rare occurrence.

Hey Guys,

I`m having a memory issue and I saw some of you have similar kit so maybe you could give me a heads up.

I`m trying to run 4x 2gb Gskill dimms, namely these http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=367 on an Asus P8Z68 Deluxe, and I can`t get it to run for the life of me frown.gif

I used to have these dimms running 100% stable on a P8P67, so the sticks must be good, but the infamous chipset issue got me, and I used the oppertunity to switch to Z68.

I wrote down my P67 bios settings before switching, intending to copy them to the Z68, but I noticed that the bioses had some minor differences, namely I`m missing the "VCCSA voltage" option entirely.

When using 2 of the 4 sticks I can get the machine to run reliably, but with all 4 it basically fails to POST most of the time.
This is when using 9/10/9/28/2 latencies, a Dram voltage of up to 1.65, and VCCIO of 1.25.

What would you recommend I try next ?

1. Did you remove battery from MB for 5 minutes then put back in
2. Did you reset BIOS to Defaults (With your 2 sticks of ram of course for now)
3. If you get post return to BIOS set to XMP (Don't Touch Nothing Else)
4. Add all 4 sticks , See if it works out

Thanks Eagle, I`ll try that when I get back home.

When I go from 100% default bios settings, then set XMP, the machine is not amused, even with 2 sticks.

Hangs in windows after a few minutes, and sometimes before finishing POST.

This issue is very similar to what I used to have with my P8P67 deluxe, until I started playing with VCCSA on that one and it worked like a charm.

I don`t know what else to do frown.gif
