New intel NIC drivers out, 17.1
post #722 of 1355
I've tried running my system again (i7 2600k @ 4.5ghz 1.29v bios) and it was stable for standard 25 runs in ibt. My mems were running at 1333mhz while my gpu are at stock. I tried running 3dmark06, 3dmark11, 3dmarkvantage and furmark (burn in 1080 15mins). However, when I tried to do a mild OC on my gpu, I got BSOD code 124. When I checked what that error code could possibly is, it's "increase/decrease vcore or QPI/VTT". Any inputs on this guys? I'm not sure where I could find QPI/VTT in my maximus IV extreme bios. Basically the only voltage I changed is the vcore and the rest are @ auto. wth.gif

Hey guys i'm thinking to get a desktop gaming rig and have my eyes on P8Z68-V LE/LX (on budget), after some research i have couple questions hope the owner can answer:

1. Does it really support PCIe 3.0 after via BIOS update? I ask this because the site and box package didn't mention anything about it but i found a page list it as supported: http://event.asus.com/2011/mb/PCIe3_Ready/ While is there a difference between "Supported" and "True PCIe 3.0 ready"?

2. Does this revision "B3" apply on Z68 too or limited to P67 only?

Thx

@Rye26, If you're running IBT "standard" then you're not really stressing your system long enough. Leave it on "maximum" for 20-25 passes.

1. It should support PCIe 3.0 since the second slot runs at 4x.
2. B3 mainly pertains to P67 due to the SATA bug recall. But all of that was addressed with Z68 when it came out so you shouldn't have to worry about your ports dropping out anytime soon.

Thanks for the fast reply, that sums up everything that i should be aware of, time to save up and go for this nice board, quite future proof with PCIe 3.0 if it really works.

will the ripjaw z 16gb 1600mhz rams work in Z68? I don't see any z68 boards in their compatibility list. I'm planning to uprade my rams and these look pretty nice. biggrin.gif

@SimpleTech - I'll try to run them in maximum test and see if I need to throw more voltage in the vcore.

I need brave guys with SPI-programmer / second BIOS-chip to test my method of 3xxx -> 0xxx BIOS downgrade.
It's the upgraded version of that method, but I have used DOS-bootable USB flash and DOS version of flash software.
Same method can be used in Windows, replacing bupdater.exe with ASUS update.
Works perfect on my Maximus IV Gene-Z, but needs testing on other P67/Z68 boards.
I know that it's dangerous to flash BIOS and take no responsibility or liability for any errors or problems that may occur by consequence of following that method, but i need it to be tested. smile.gif
So, please test it and write your results here.
