Few questions about my Asus p8z68v-le motherboard

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I will be receiving my desktop tomorrow.

It has a P8Z68V-LE motherboard...

1-) I believe there is a new bios update for this motherboard that was released 10th of this month. I doubt that my motherboard has that latest bios. First how can i check if it does or not and second how can i update my bios?

2-) Should i install everything in the CD?

3-) Can you guys easily overclock your GPU and CPU with the TPU ( The Ultimate Turbo Processor?)

Thanks in advance.

The BIOS version number is seen in the UEFI's "EZ Mode" right at the top just to the right of the big digital clock they have in there. It can also be seen in Advanced Mode in the "Main" tab.

If you want to update the BIOS, then it's very easily done using a USB flash drive and the built-in EZ Flash 2 Utility (in the UEFI, under the Tools tab).

No, because then you will end up with things you don't need or want.

However, I recommend installing newer versions directly from ASUS' website; but again, don't just get everything. Only download and install what you need.

For example: let's say that you won't be using the onboard audio. If that were to be the case, then you wouldn't install it (or even download it).

Or let's say that you're not going to be using USB 3.0 at all (or ever in the future). So then you would not install the USB 3.0 driver.

Or let's say that you will be using your own ethernet card instead of the onboard LAN jack. If that were to be true, then you would not install the "LAN" driver (the Realtek LAN driver).


Way too many people are just blindly installing absolutely everything and then they come back and complain that things are starting with Windows that they don't want; and usually want to know how they got there in the first place. Don't be one of those guys.

It's talking about the integrated GPU in the CPU, not your video card.

Besides, you're on Overclock.net, so I recommend doing all of your overclocking manually in the UEFI.
