I found out using ASUS drivers are best for my z68 -v pro mb also the reason ASUS hasn't updated there drivers the chipset ,raid controller,mei and etc you cannot going any higher in the hardware version then it is until new firmware has been released (it is what it is)

Question lies on why they don't update USB 3.0, SATA (Marvel, ASMedia), or Intel IGP drivers?




That's where I come in. Ha-cha! winksmiley02.gif

I noticed that you updated the link for the Bluetooth driver. I downloaded and (successfully) installed it but the driver version is showing 7.4.0.122 after installation as opposed to the quoted 7.4.0.125.

Yes, it improves speeds significantly.



No, stick to using the Intel 6Gb/s ports. If you don't have anything hooked up to the Marvell ports, disabled it in the BIOS. Will help a little bit with boot times.



When in the BIOS/UEFI, set Ai Overclock Tuner to Manual. Make sure BCLK/PEG Frequency is at 100.0.

Change the Turbo Ratio to 45 for starters. Only change your multiplier, don't mess with the BCLK.

Internal PLL Overvoltage can be left at AUTO or disabled since this is a minimal overclock. Enable it when you're trying for 4.8GHz+.

Set Load-Line Calibration to Ultra-High.

Change the VRM Frequency to 350 or 360.

Set Phase Control to Extreme. The same goes with Duty Control.

Leave CPU Current Capability at 100%.

CPU Voltage is where it can get tricky. Some CPUs might need more voltage than others. So start off with 1.32v and if that isn't stable, increase it two notches.

DRAM voltage is your memory voltage, you can get the read from the side of the sticks. And don't forget to adjust your Memory Frequency.

where can I find the Duty Control? im using the Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3 mobo..

Going to fix it with an updated version that came out today.

It depends on the board you're using. My guess is that Phase Control = Duty Control with your board.

Ethernet is your Intel or Realtek LAN. If the Intel one in the OP doesn't work, try this one.

PCI Simple Communications Controller is linked to Intel Management Engine driver.

As for the unknown devices, I'm not entirely sure. Can you read off the Hardware ID string?

Hardware IDs:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503&CC_0200
Physical Device Name:
\Device\NTPNP_PCI0004


I'll update the management engine again.
