Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 82

post #811 of 1418
Ah cool that makes sense about the HD4000 if that's what's needed for them. We have (well we can and I have) installed OROM 11.5 and earlier so that's not the problem for us. I haven't seen latest screenshots from their boards either but fairly sure they are still running the same UEFI and IME we are.

Yeah, I mentioned this too. It comes with it's own installer so it's easy to 'add' (but you need to remove Fan Xpert+ like you said). After running the initial setup, in the end I just leave it to the same screen as the previous one so it's not that different though.
One thing I can't remember is if the previous version allowed 3pin fan control on CHA headers like this one does?
For what it's worth, there were 2 other things that looked interesting but I couldn't make them work: Lucid MVP and Intel Rapid Start Technology (not sure what we're missing that this fails).

Yes, 3 pin control on CHA headers works on the old Z68 version of Fan Xpert too. Sorry I missed your post on this earlier, as far as updates go it's a pretty big one for this board.

Not sure why Lucid MVP didnt work for you. I got it to work, but I downloaded it from their website. Their site even says it's "designed for the next generation of Intel Sandy Bridge Z68/H67/H61 and other Intel integrated graphics as well as many AMD processor-based notebooks." So it's definitely not exclusive to z77 - ivybridge. (http://www.lucidlogix.com/product-virtu-mvp.html)

I could get Virtu MVP to install but it says that it's an evaluation copy.

There must be something I'm missing.

EDIT: Also running an i5 2500K on a P8Z68-V PRO.

What's missing would be Intel 4000 graphics vs 3000 found on the 2nd gen SB proc and the proper raid rom found on chipset bios of Z77 boards. These inequities are likely the source of incompatibility. The sotwares are looking for one thing and finding another.

Can you get fan xpert2 to work on the Z68? I've been trying with the Z77 Ai Suite then installing fan xpert2, but it still only shows up the 1st version in the control panel.

Also.. cant seem to get UASP enabled, I only see Turbo and Normal under the USB 3.0 Boost panel, even though I'm using one of the officially supported devices listed in the Asus website, a 32GB JetFlash Transcend 700.

Yes, just have to uninstall Fan Xpert+ first. It's running on my Z68 like a charm. smile.gif

Go to "add and remove programs" in Windows and select "AI Suite II" to remove it. That will open the AI Suite uninstall program which allows you to remove each individual tool in the AI Suite separately -- in this case it's just the Fan Xpert+.

Thanks that works smile.gif Had to reinstall Digi+ VRM manually also after the Z77 pack.

You can find it in the downloads area of any Z77 board in the Asus website.

Anyone know anything about the P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 Power on self test LED's? specifically the VGA led. When I turn my PC on all fans(GPU, CPU and all) light up/turn on, There is no video output and the VGA light turn's on for about 5 min then all the sudden the light will shut off and the mobo sounds a single chirp(has always done this) and boots into windows just fine. Once the power on self test pass's the GPU section its fine, no error's or anything. I have tested PSU, Swapped out the VGA card and even tried the onboard VGA card. Same exact results. Power on, everything turns on, no display output, memory and CPU self test LED's blink once(As they always have) followed by the VGA LED lighting up solid for about 5 min, Then all the sudden it works just fine. Any tips and suggestions would be great! Thank you!
