Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 62

For the record, in order to allow CPU throttling, you don't need to do the balanced power thing. Just enable speedstep and change at least one of the C states from auto to enabled. Otherwise, use steps 2-4.

What are those major changes you mentioned?

Thanks, that is how I expected to do it. A few images..The first is from the BIOS in my P8P67-LE with a i5-2500K and it is as you describe. The second and third are from the bios in my new (to be RMA'd)P8Z68-V Pro/Gen 3 Bios version 3202. There is no longer a Turbo mode By-Core option on the main AI tweaker page just a Yes or No on the CPU Power Management sub page. Any insights about this would be greatly appreciated.

@fishski7, are you sure you have the right board? The latest BIOS for P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 is 3201.
post #615 of 1418
Yep, 3202 has a 2/17/12 build date and is listed on their website

Very strange... The manual has all the old AI Tuner old pics and methods discussed previously, but 3202 apparently is different. Documentation would have been nice....LOL

The BIOS shipping with the new P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 is BIOS version 3101 (I got mine 10 days ago and it came with BIOS 3101)


The latest BIOS on the ASUS site is indeed 3202.

On the Exit button hit the "Load Optimized Defaults" then it will show up.

Just tried it, doesn't work in 3202, but then it's a wonky board. Very strange behavior. In addition to previously mention problems, it's now peridoically crashing when I'm just sitting in the BIOS screen, have to hit the MEM OK button to get it to do anything, then it goes through an auto OC cycle before returning to the BIOS sometimes with really weird numbers. If I'm lucky the replacement board will have 3101 redface.gif

Make sure both the TPU and EPU switch are set to the up position = Disabled

If its freezing in the UEFI screen then its the memory.

Sounds like your problems are from your memory settings/timings, set it to AUTO usually will = 1333mhz

Im sure your baord is perfectly fine smile.gif

Before I RMA it, I wonder if I'm underpowering it (system speced in rig#1). I was running the AMD6970 in the i5-2500k/P8P67-LE system with a PS rated at 430 watts OCed to 4.8 gHz under heavy online simracing load with no problems for 9 months. Bumped the PS up to 520 watts for this system with essentially same components except the i7 and the motherboard. Thought bumping up 90 watts would be sufficient since I obviously had headroom with the stable performance of the other system. Maybe should return the PS before the MB?

Thoughts on whether PS could be the issue and appropriate PS size for this rig?

Thx a zillion...
