Hey guy's updated my bios to 1.10 with this mobo last night. My mouse would work with the 1.00 bios but was kinda weird in the bios. It would move but very slowly. Now that I have the latest bios my mouse works great in the bios. No crazy motion!

So all is good on the home front! smile.gif

Still on 1.00 bios and no buggyness with cursor, runs smooth. Cheap mouses are actually good for something.

I wonder if their will be a bios update to have the start button and the reset button on the mobo to stay lit while powered on.

Didn't even realize we have our own "official" thread. Good stuff! Z68 extreme4 owner here. Been pretty happy with it so far...aside from the lack of good drivers for the USB 3.0. I seem to have constant problems with the USB 3.0 ports as well as the orang USB ports on the back. I think the USB controller needs a good driver update.

I have been unable to get a good stable overclock using the Load Optimized CPU settings. Other than that, been happy with the board. Good to see some other Asrock owners on here. WOw, some nice rigs Freeline and Wicked...very nice indeed.

Very little difference between EX3 and EX4 other than an extra PCIE slot and a couple usb/sata ports

Also....add me. Extreme3 Gen3 owner

So far so good

Strange my mouse was all inverted with BIOS 1.0, but perfect with 1.10.

Please forgive my ignorance, but what is the difference in the z68 and the p67 chips? I am assembling pieces for a new computer and am using the 2nd gen i5 2500k cpu. Just have the motherboard, case and gpu to buy and assemble.

Z68 chipset supports SSD caching, on-chip GPU (HDMI, DVI output without the need of a discrete GPU), and some other minor things.

Here's an overview: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/...s-chipset.html

Z68 has IGPU and SSD Caching support, P67 does not.

One reason to go with Z68 instead of P67 is if you want to use Intel Quick Sync. Quick Sync is much faster than CUDA and APP when it comes to video encoding. Quick Sync is tied to IGPU so no Quick Sync for P67.
