Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 61

Since you're running RAID, I would update to the latest one. Nice setup by the way.
post #602 of 1418
Thanks. Just a quick o/c it will run up to 5 without any issues however what actually locks the multiplier? Otherwise at idle I am at normal speed. Under load it is up clocking to 5-5.1 without any issues but for the sake of testing Id like to try both methods

I got 7.4.0.120 and it installed just fine.

With 7.4.0.125, Setup.exe prompts for installation language when I launch it (after a UAC prompt) then goes to prepare the installer and then closes with nothing happening. I have reason to believe that this is because the Bluetooth suite installer is not in the install package.

Right click the exe and on the general tab make sure it is unblocked towards the bottom of the dialog then click apply. Then on the Compatibility tab check run as administrator once checked click apply and OK. Now you can attempt to run the exe again. Unless you are skilled at protecting your system the following recommendation is optional in other words use at you own risk but I always disable UAC for reason you've no doubt encountered. I for one have no worries with it disabled because I don;t install stuff willy nilly  and don't need mother M$ telling me what I can and can not do. The easiest way to disable is through msconfig. Hit the Windows key and type msconfig then enter then click on the Tools tab and scroll down to Disable UAC and left click to highlight then click on launch lower right of dialog. You will need to reboot for the changes to take effect. This will help in making sure UAC is not the cause of your issue and it can always be re-enabled if you are not comfortable using it 24/7 like I do. GL I hope this helps!

Major problems with a new build that I'm hoping someone can shed some light on.

Old system: ASUS P8P67-LE , i5-2500k, 4 gb Kingston Hyper-x 2000mHz stable for 8 months at 4.8gHz and 1978mHz mem speed cpu voltage 1.375 bclk 106 cpu multiplier 45

New system: ASUS P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 , i7-2600k, 8gb Corsair 2000mHz XM3

Problems started immediately when Corsair mem won't post at anything higher than 1066, put the Kingston mem in the new machine and it won't post anything higher than 1333.

In the Bios there is no option for setting the cpu multiplier like there is in the P8P67 bios, it seems locked @ 34 and there is only an option for changing the BCLK

The best I've been able to do is 4.4 gHz and 1440 mem speed on the new system. Why can;t I change the CPU multiplier? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks a zillion

You're doing it manually, correct (Ai Overclock Tuner is set to Manual)?

Yes, AI overclocking in manual. Another difference is the P8P67 board executed the "automatic" tuner perfectly(to use as a starting point for manual tuning), whereas the P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 board auto process failed, it stopped at the first trial and I had to use the MemOK function to get it going again. The Z68 board does have the latest bios installed. Don;t understand why the cpu multiplier option is not available in the bios. Is it a i7 thing??

Thanks

What is your current bios ver? Did you set optimized defaults prior to user specific adjustments? Have your tested for stability at stock clocks? You should fill out your rig details in "My profile" and tell us any settings changes you have made other than optimized defaults.

Bios 3202 I'm working on filling out the rig details. Think I'm going to RMA the board. New symptoms include, not shutting down (keeps all the fans running, have to unplug), randomly starting up by itself, not posting for 3 or 4 tries at factory defaults.

One big question is it unique to this bios or a Z68 bios's that there is no direct access to the CPU multiplier? Doing auto OC, even though it crashes and doesn't finish when I finally get it to boot it will say something like "SUccessful 103x38" . But there is nowhere in the bios to change the CPU multiplier myself? I'll get another Z68 board or a P67 board if this board woun;t let you do it.

You cant increase the CPU Ratio Multi past its base limit (2500K limit is 33) this is by ASUS design, The Turbo Mode "By Per Core or By All Cores" is what will set a specific Multi past 33, I'll explain how ASUS says to do it below and this is how I do it.

These below are my BIOS settings for 4.2GHz (2500K)


1. Change the CPU multi to Max i.e: 33 (2500K)

2. Enable Turbo Mode but Disable Speedstep also Disable PLL Overvoltage.

3. Change Turbo mode to "By Per Core", type in 42 in all 4 boxes.

4. LLC Regular, phase Standard, AUTO VRM frequency, Disable VRM Spread Spectrum, CPU current 100%, T.Probe

5. Offset Voltage "Minus" - .005

6. Disable Spread Spectrum

7. Go into CPU advanced section and Disable Speedstep, Disable C1E and Disable the last two C states


This will give you a constant 4.2GHz for the system, Windows wont display 4.2GHz it will still say 3.30GHz, But the sytem is really running at 4.2GHz on all cores and it wont throttle at Idle.


Idle Voltage - 1.288v

Under full Load - 1.240v



FYI - If you want Windows to throttle down the CPU at Idle do this below.


1. Set Windows PWR management to "Balanced Mode" (this step is optional but I would set it just to be safe)

2. In BIOS set the Turbo mode to "By All Cores" type in 42 = 4200MHz for example

3. Set the actual CPU multi to what you want it to idle down to 16-33, 16 = 1600MHz, 33 = 3300MHz

4. Enable Speedstep, and Enable C1E
