Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 69

post #681 of 1418
Just an FYI for those interested, the Fan Xpert2 (instead of Fan Xpert+) which comes with Z77 works on this board. Download their Asus SUITE and install - has quite a few additional tweaks which you may / may not find interesting. I used the z77-v pro as I have the z68-v pro board.

It also includes Probe II update.. I didn't update/install anything else so not sure if they work.

The only things I found that don't work are USB Charger+ (because the Z68 boards don't have a USB port circled in green) and DIGI+ Power Control (which uninstalls DIGI+ VRM Control but doesn't show in the suite menus at all).

As a general rule, the latest drivers are the best ones.

"Your" general rule is a ground for lots of debates. Every enthusiast know that the latest ain't always the best especially considering nvidia drivers.

Do I need these if I'm using a video card:
- Lucid Virtu Software: 1.2.113.21492
- Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver: 8.15.10.2669 (15.26.6) - x86 / x64

If I'm installing the os on the ssd do I need this:
-Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver

Is this any good:
-USB 3.0 Boost 1.02.06

Yes we are, Any day now Intel will release a new RST that will allow TRIM for RAID arrays smile.gif

They most likely will also release a new RAID ROM that will go with the new driver.

Nope. If you were running RAID however, you would need it.

Don't need it. I tried it a while back and found that you need a USB 3.0 device that can utilize the boost function. Very few devices can.

I think the raid driver is good for SSD's regardless if you are running raid no? If not I think it will use the stock MS ahci driver. Not sure if this is still relevant I have been out of the loop on all things ssd for some time now.
