Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 64

post #631 of 1418
Reconfirmed TPU is indeed off, turned HT off and tried a few other things. No Turbo ratio adjustment. Took the Patriot mem out that won;t post at anything higher than 1300 mHz and dropped it into the P8P67 i2500k board and didn;t have to change a thing turned right on @ 1978 mHz. Put the really good kingston back in the board and it won;t post at anything higher than 1333. The board still doesn't power down (leaves all fans running), randomly starts up by itself, won;t wake up from sleep at all. Despite the BIOS saying it's a P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3, ASUS's support site "autodetect" says it's a P8Z68-V Pro. I've had enough of this board and it's going back tomorrow. Not sure what I'll replace it with. I want to thank everyone for their help.

I'm a long time ASUS fan so I replaced it with the same board and there is happiness in River City! Installed the replacement board and it works perfectly!!! No startup/shutdown/sleep issues. Turbo ratio shows up in the bios like it should. Instantly stable 4.5 gHz with 1866 memory. Ready to go simracing.....

Thanks for everyone's help and support.

Hi.
I have this problem.

My mobo is asus p8z68-v pro/gen3
Sound card asus xonar d2x
Gpaphics card sapphire hd 6970 2gb dual fan.
If the xonar d2x is connected to first mini-pci e x1 without the hd6970 in first pci-e x16 the sound card working perfect.
If the xonar d2x is connected to first mini-pci e x1 with the hd6970 in first pci-e x16 the sound card has very low sound output and after this problem the digital output its burned. and not working any more.
Now i can use only the analog output from the xonar d2x.
With the firmware 3202 in mobo the xonar can working only in the last pci-e x1-4 normal without problem in analog output now.
And this problem happening only if in first pci-e x16 is connecter graphics cald like 6970 or 6950.
With an old 8800gt in pci-e x16 the problem not happening.

If someone have hd6970 or hd6950 in first pci-e x16 please put in first mini pci-e x1 a xonar sound card ot another card to tell me if its working normal.

From asus until now they dont answer to me if the mobo this model of mobo has problem.
The only answer from asus is .. they dont replace the sound card because is out of warranty.

Sorry my english are not very good.
Thanks.

I recently built the system in my sig and I've been troubleshooting a problem with static coming from my microphone. Whether I use the front panel or the back, I still get this constant static from my microphone. The sound going through my headphones seems fine, however. My friend recently got the same board (P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3) and is having the same issue, even with a completely different setup (different case, different mic, etc.). I've tried the Windows plug and play driver as well as the Realtek HD audio driver provided in the OP and I'm still having the same problem. I've screwed around with BIOS settings like going from HD to AC97, but that makes no difference either. It's the same level of static. The static sounds like a constant rainfall in the background, if that helps. Device Manager reports no problems. My mic worked perfectly on my old setup.

It sounds like you're experiencing EMI. Do you have any speakers (or sub) near your computer? Is there any possibility you can test it outside your case and see if it exhibits the same thing?

No, I don't have anything like that near my computer. My old setup used to be in the exact same place on my desk and it never had an issue. I don't have anything plugged into my surge protector other than my computer's power supply and my monitor. Its lights for "grounded" and "protected" are both lit up.

I tested my microphone in two other machines, one of which was through a microphone jack on a pair of speakers, the other via the onboard on the I/O panel. It works fine on those machines.

I unplugged every case fan on this machine and had both side panels off and it's still just the same constant noise emitting from the microphone when I choose to listen to it in Windows. Same intensity whether it's via the front port or the back. Again, the sound coming through my headphones is perfectly fine - it's just my microphone, which is a separate peripheral not attached to my headphones, if that makes any difference.
