Yeah, they both are in need of new logic boards and are feeling pretty neglected,lol. But on a serious note can anyone recommend a good ethernet card? I'll just bypass the problem.

Maybe RMA the board instead. The intel LAN in these Asus mobos are pretty good tbh over average add-on cards.

Grrr 3402 i think i still need 1.415 VCORE to be stable!!!! I Only needed 1.390 with the previous 1xxx BIOS's :\ even 3203 :\ 3402 im not gonna prime 12 hours to test but meh. For prime 95 18 hours stable i get BSOD after 11 hours with 1.405 vcore @ 4.6GHZ My chip is obese LOL. This thing runs well, intel chips can take a beating 85C in intel burn test 50 runs @ 1.415 4600 mhz and this 2500k takes it like a champ! Volt hungry chip though.

I am considering upgrading my BIOS from 3201 to either 3304 or 3402, but I am not sure that would be an improvement when I read posts like this.

Is there any consensus yet on if 3304 or 3402 would be better for users than 3201? (for P8Z68-V/Gen3)

Thanks!

It didn't work with the latest versions anyway.
post #910 of 1418
Is it recommended to update my board's BIOS (initial revision) to the latest BIOS version if I decide to overclock?
