Yeah well it says

- Improve Improve system stability.
- Enhance compatibility with some USB devices.
- Support new CPUs.

On this one which made me want to install it due to 3304 being less stable with my OC i had to raise my voltage to remain stable. the Also iv seen occasional messups and even a BSOD with USB devices before so the system stability increase and the USB compatibility increase made me want to get on 3402 from 3304, 3304 i had to bump up my VCORE to remain stable BAM x124 BSOD on it a week or two after i update, previous BIOS to 3203 was stable as a rock for over 2 months so that raised suspensions to it being BIOS, I noticed the 3.3 was running at 3.376 and 3.392 where was 3203 was running 3.392 and 3.402 so maybe this one caused it 3304 i am thinking. So lets see how 3402 runs it does specifically state increased stability and some USB compatibility so i went for it and it seems fine so far, i dont have the VGA problem and i just swapped out a GPU For another one to test a card so running fine here no LED light. lets hope this BIOS is a good one. I got a good feeling about it so far so smile.gif *knocks on wood*

Also does IRST 11.1.0.1006 only work for RAID? or AHCI also?

Both but with AHCI it's mainly geared toward SSDs.

yeah im in the same boat as you. i never really read up on IRST because i thought it required raid. right now i have a crucial 256gb ssd for os, a WD 2TB sata drive for junk, and a 750gb drive for fun.

would i benefit from using IRST? after some quick reading just now, it seems like i would benefit from it. doesn't seem like i need to reinstall windows to get it working which is a plus, can any1 confirm that you dont need to wipe your existing data ?

Basically faster sequential read/write and better TRIM support. Though I've been using the stock Microsoft driver and haven't had any issues, as fast as the day I bought it.

And you won't need to reinstall Windows. The same goes for if you want to uninstall it.

Yeah intel Rapid Storage technology runs in the backround and manages the drives works great for me. it manages my boot drive and my storage drive. Not to be confused with the Intel SSD caching which i don't use. But this is good it manages the drives and helps with TRIM and what not, also increases speeds. The main thing is the faster write/read speeds iv seen since im using an intel SATA port on the intel AHCI controller intel drivers work better than standard microsoft in my experience.

I upgraded my bios as well to 3402 and noticed a 5 degree higher CPU, Gpu is Ok
also installed AI suite2 (version for z77- love new fancontrol) on my Pz68 pro.
removed new feature for internet and temps are good again


On fast button setings in AI SUITE cpu needed 1.270v and now 1.280v for 4.4,
Overclocking on auto button extreme now takes me to 4.9 ( bios 3202 before only to 4,6)

this was only for test, I'm always on offset -
so far so good with 3402 bios:)

EDIT: I updated my P8Z68-V PRO's BIOS to 3402 and it's solved my problem with OC not showing up in CPU utilities by automatically enabling Turbo when adjusting the CPU multi up and locking it to enabled.

What made you conclude that Lucid's website has false advertising?
