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

Will you be scared to upgrade BIOS 0651 ? Only a warning after flashing to 0651 downgrade back to 0501 or 0402 will not work
after looking at your ram BIOS could be the key

I`m allready running beta bios 0651.
Didn`t have much luck with 0501 so flashed to latest version.

Anyone using memory that isn't on the QVL list with a P8Z68 V Pro? I'm hoping to get away with using the G.Skill ECO in my sig.

I'll be picking up some more memory eventually so I can roll down my M4N75TD and Phenom II X4 970BE into my spare rig, but I'd like to use this for a couple weeks before getting new ram to spread out the cost.

Anyone have the P8Z68 deluxe and have a problem with the front panel USB 3.0 box solution recognizing 3.0 devices?

My rear mobo ports work fine, but I only get 2.0 performance (and a balloon notification saying this device could perform faster if plugged into a super-speed usb 3.0 port) from the add-on box that comes in the mobo retail package. Is there a bios setting or something?

Please help, this is really confusing me. One of the only reasons i went with the deluxe over another model was for this front usb 3.0 box since my case's front panel lacks it.

Not sure if any of U hav experienced a double splash screen from ASUS when you boot up. Some people are calling it a boot loop and seems to be inherent problem from the P67 boards

Glad to report after following numerous suggestions from other threads I've managed to solve it (on my rig anyhow)

Enter BIOS/Advanced Mode - Under the 'ADVANCED' tab go to 'Onboard Devices Configuration' and under the JMB storage controller disable the 'Display OptionROM in post'

This prevents the JMB storage controller (used for eSATA port on mobo) to report during post thus preventing it from interupting the splash screen and making it appear that it is loading twice.

ALSO GO TO BOOT and under OptionROM messages change from 'Force BIOS' to 'Keep Current'

Again it'll prevent from interupting the splash screen and shave off a few seconds from boot time, cos when your rig boots in W7 in under 35secs it matters!

You can also display splash screen under boot, not sure if it'll save time but then you wont be able to customize it with your own logo

Feedback to whether this helped would be appreciated

I believe you haven't installed the usb drivers that came with the mobo dvd.TRy doing that,restart and if you're not missing any other drivers conflict will be resolved and they will work @v3.0.

Thanks for the reply GRat. I've tried using both the drivers from Asus' website and also the drivers that were posted here that are from intel's website. Neither seem to solve the problem; the USB 3.0 box does not work at 3.0 speeds with either driver, but the ports on the motherboard work at 3.0 speeds with both drivers.

I really didn't want to RMA the motherboard for this problem alone...but I'm beginning to lose hope.

Still open to other suggestions, but I think I've been through everything

I hope you can figure out a solution (past drivers I'm kinda drawing a blank), have you checked in your onboard devices setion of the UEFI to verify that nothing appears to have disabled the front USB header? I know on the P67 Pro, the front USB shares lanes with a lot of other stuff so they can be disabled, atleast on the P67 deluxe that's not a problem so I would imagine it's the same on the Z68 but still worthwhile to look over your onboard devices.

Has anyone tried the 'official' 0606 bios yet? I think I've finally got my new rig happy running 0501 and was debating whether I should make the change now or wait to see what kind of feedback it gets. Thanks!
