Yeah, it's update-able using MMTool v4.5.0.23, but I don't know the right way yet.

How about updating the OROM, can you post a step-by-step guide on how to do it with MMTool?
post #243 of 1418
Just follow the steps here ---> http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1038071484&postcount=4814

I haven't updated my RAID OROM yet cause I am still waiting for the release of BIOS 1101 for my board (ASUS P8Z68-V). And I'm still confirming owners of P8Z68-V Pro at vip.asus.com who already updated to the latest bios v1101 on what version of RAID OROM is included on bios v1101.

I recently bought a p8z68v-pro and its been running great, but my usb transfer speeds seem slow. Any ideas what could be up? I've installed the usb 3.0 drivers from the included cd, along with the chipset and lan drivers.

I've enabled speedstep and C1E but it still seems to be going at max frequency (4.5ghz). Are there any other settings that need to be enabled/disabled to get this to work?
What exactly are the benefits of this, this is both my first build and first OC so I'm new to everything.

Also is anyone getting a double boot problem?
On the first boot it will fire up, turn off, then turn on again. It usually resets ok just doesn't go to POST until the second boot. First time I had to get this repaired as I wasn't even getting to POST, they had to swap the CPU with another one then swap back (could be wrong about this as this is second hand info from someone else who picked my comp up for me).

USB 2.0 or 3.0? Try the drivers I listed in the OP.

In Windows, make sure that in Power Options that Minimum processor state is ~5%.

The only thing I can think of for the double post issue is if your BCLK is something other than 100MHz. Make sure that in the BIOS it is manually set to 100.

@SimpleTech

Can you confirm to us what is the version of RAID OROM on the latest BIOS 1101 (P8Z68-V Pro). I ask this because there's a lot of user reports that RAID OROM v11.x.x.x has fixes several flaws including usb problems, hibernation/sleep problems, etc. Thanks.

^^I'm not using raid, but do you think that could be related to my issue? Can I update the OROM without changing my bios?

I installed the ASMedia USB 3.0 driver from the OP and get the same speeds. Any other suggestions?

Even though you are not using RAID, RAID OROM will be updated too once you update your BIOS. Ifever you updated to the latest BIOS 1101, kindly check the version of RAID OROM. First go to UEFI BIOS then Load Defaults, Save and Exit, then Go to UEFI BIOS again and change you HDD Config into RAID (AHCI is default).

Regarding the ASMedia USB 3.0, did you already update the ASMedia Firmware? If not, then download this first http://station-drivers.com/telechargement/asmedia/asmedia_usb3_1.14.1.0_firmware110914(www.station-drivers.com).exe Take note: only update your firmware. Once you updated the firmware, reboot and download the latest USB Driver here --> http://www.computerbase.de/downloads/system/usb-3.0-host-controller-treiber/

I installed that firmware and installed that driver and it doesn't seem to have helped. While the file transfer is going, the speed keeps dropping.
(I stopped it when the speed was below 2mb/sec) Any other ideas? thanks

edit: Also my bios version is 0801, which isn't even listed in asus's website. Could that be the problem?
