same problem here on p8z68pro with 606, have razer lycosa and razer copperhead. sometimes it boots fine with i increase the memory voltage, fishy drunken.gif

1.2.106

32 bit: (Windows 7)
64 bit: (Windows 7)

To have it work, you should have the monitor plugged on the integrated port. Then, you'll use the integrated card for most things, and if it detects a 3D-accelerated game (from the compatibility list) it'll automatically switch to the discrete GPU.

I think it can work the other way round too. You can plug it into the discrete port, and if it detects an application that can benefit from the integrated direct memory access (namely two video converting tools), it'll switch to the integrated GPU for faster transcoding.

Just a little update on Virtu. I've been making some tests with the monitor plugged to the discrete card.
I installed Cyberlink's Media Espresso, which supposedly uses the new i5/i7's integrated GPU 'quick sync'. When I launched the program, Virtu detected it and kicked in, so I could use the iGPU for this. Media Espresso also told me I could use the iGPU features for hardware accelerated transcoding. I transcoded a 5 GB mkv for my iPhone in around 3 minutes, so I guess it works fine.

So has anyone been able to disable SSD caching? When I do, I BSOD when booting into windows and have to reformat/reinstall.

Second Anybody have to deal with this issue at boot

No HDD Present

I have 3 HDD's connected and 1 SSD, BIOS 606 I've tried removing all, one at a time, different slots, some settings in BIOS "such as IDE mode and disabled controllers" but didn't feel too comfy with all BIOS settings so I figured I would check here first http://www.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif


If someone could point me to something else that would be great

I had that happen once with one of my Asus P67 boards. It only happened the one time but I still can't figure out why. I rebooted the system and it was fine. It was also with an SSD as the primary.

Yeap, this is how I use it also.

If anyone is interested, I found that using iGPU and then Virtu to run 3DMark11 (so opposite to what you'd usually do) had only approx. 3% decrease in overall score, so not bad.

But that said, I fail to see why you'd run in iGPU mode considering your discrete cards will still be clocked and volts running the same as they're in idling state (so temps are the same too) - so you're not 'really' saving much at all IMO.

So after updating all the drivers today on my p8z68-v pro board, my sound suddenly drops out all the time, like seriously, it drops out every 5 seconds.. Anyone experienced the same ?

Works fine with my g35 headset, but when i shift to the onboard audio connected to my amplifier via an optical audio cable, its totally messed up frown.gif

Sad panda

EDIT : Wow, really just wow --- reinstalling windows, and going back to the drivers i used before doesnt even fix this ... *** -.-

Its not even possible for a chipset driver to damage ones soundcard is it ? i am really at a loss here, never experienced anything like this lol


Double EDIT : Soo... yea, this is where i SHOULD edit out my stupidity - but since i am only gonna add more stupidity, why not keep the 1st stupid part as well :d

The fix was ....... wait for it.................... changing the stupid cable! biggrin.gif now why on earth did i not try this before whining here, and reinstalling windows ... jesus biggrin.gif
now i guess im a stupid panda

Glad to report after following numerous suggestions from other threads I've managed to solve it (on my rig anyhow)



Feedback to whether this helped would be appreciated

I realize it's an old post in the thread, but I'm very glad that I found the solution to this irksome behavior here in the forum. Thanks to DZP for the solution to this "hiccup" that has driven me crazy during these first few days of running my new P8Z68 Deluxe build. What a sweet board! It came up first time and has been very well behaved and faster than I ever imagined it would be. Just a few items left to look into:

1. No mic audio into any applications from either the back or the front jacks with any of my mics that work well with my other systems. Everything is set to HD in the RealTek bios menu and the HD connector for the front panel is correctly seated on the MB.

2. VCORE for the 2600K I-7 floats as low as .6V at idle, which may not actually be a problem, but others have reported instability with some P68 boards when it floats below 1V so it makes me wonder. No lockups or BSOD in Win7 so perhaps it's just a curiosity.

3. I haven't yet gone into the bios to push my RAM (Corsair Vengeance) up to 1600. I'll give it a week to make sure it's all good at 1333 then I'll play with the OC and benchmarking.

Currently running the 0501 bios that the board came with. It runs great and seems very happy with 0501 but I'll move up in a week or so.

Thanks for the lead post in this thread with all update links for everything! That's an amazing repository of helpful stuff!

I could definitely lose a day just reading all the threads here. Very nice forum.

Regards,

Ender

Hi,

I just mounted a new rig with what's listed in my signature below. I keep experiencing artefacts and flickers on my Windows desktop that get worse and worse over time. After a while, everything freezes and I get the following message: "display driver stopped responding and has just recovered". Sometimes though, it does not recover and I have to manually reboot my PC.

The motherboard came configured with BIOS 0706, which only seems to apply to the Deluxe version of the P8Z68-V, so I downgraded to 0606 in case. No difference.

The memory sticks have been tested with memtest86 4.0a. With all 4 sticks in, tons of errors are detected. USB Legacy is turned off in BIOS.

Then tested with only one stick. No errors reported. But I still get these artefacts and the freezes.

PSU has also been changed from Antec NeoPower Blue 650W to OCZ Silencer 750W in case the previous PSU wasn't delivering a steady 12V. No change.

Latest Catalyst drivers installed (09.11). No overclocking yet.
Now I am out of ideas and I'm open for yours! Do I have a defective graphic card?
