Actually even using AHCI mode uses the MEI firmware because you install the Intel MEI software.

HI everybody, I,m a new Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 user with an i7 2700k. CPU on it. I,m working in "optimal" configuration and to be honest I dont have any experience with 1155 and SB avercloking. I have made a lot of oc in my old 775, I will like to use my system with 4.5 or 4.7 ghz but I need some templates of the UEFI to start. I have watercooling on my case. Any one can help me with some bios template ? Many thanks.

New BIOS for P8Z68-V/GEN3 3101

1.Improve system stability.
2.Improve memory compatibility.
3.Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
*Enable support for Intel Next Gen 22nm Processor E1 stepping (available from BIOS 3012)
that's strange there were no 3012 BIOS

For owners of these boards, those are the other two threads worth watching I think. Overclocking guides listed on first one at least. Generally the first page of a thread tries to list the necessary advice/s.

Hi, I'm having a problem with this bios. It is working, but I cannot enter bios (I guess it is expecting to be displayed on a discrete card, which I don't have). So nothing gets displayed until the windows logo (Starting Windows...). If I press DEL to enter bios, it's just sitting there and I can't see anything. My only monitor is a CRT one, connected through the VGA (D-sub) connector. I don't have another monitor or discrete graphics card.

The previous version of the BIOS didn't do this, and I made no changes to the configuration before the update. In fact, when I updated it (through USB stick and the EZFlash option in BIOS), on the next reboot it asked me to "Press F1 to continue" and something else, which I don't remember (It wasn't an error, it seemed normal after a bios update), then it entered the bios and the blackness began.

Is there maybe a keyboard shortcut or something that I can force it to display on the integrated gfx? I don't want to reset the bios because:

1. There are some configuration options I struggled with and I don't remember what they are now, that everything is working properly.
2. There is still a chance it won't reset properly (it won't display on the integrated gfx).
3. My case is hard to open and on a difficult place to reach, I hate to have to dismantle everything just to get to the jumper.

P8Z68-V_GEN3/I7 2600K

Thank you.
