P8Z68-V/GEN3

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
New and confused. I just updated to the new bios update 3201 and am having a bit of trouble. In the old bios 0301 I was able to auto tune my rig easily to 4.6. But since downloading this new one I was able to get it to 4.3 once, then reset to try and raise it but now it won't even get to 4.1. Was my first mistake updating my bios? Wanted to do it to get ready for Ivy Bridge which will be replacing my i7 2700K as soon as it's released. Thanks for any help I can get.

I had read of people having issues with the new BIOS. Personally I stayed with 0301. I'd just flash back to those and wait if 3201 is giving you trouble. Or maybe ask in the official owners club thread. http://www.overclock.net/t/1012874/the-official-asus-p8p67-p8z68-p8z68-gen3-series-owners-club/0_20

So you have a 2700k that your not Overclocking manually?? Really? Not trying to be an ass but why did you spend the extra money on a 2700k and not learn to overclock it manually?

I have the same MB as you and have not had a problem as of yet with the new bios overclocking manual. You should get 4.6 np. if you watched a couple of youtube videos.

Lots of good info here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1012874/the-official-asus-p8p67-p8z68-p8z68-gen3-series-owners-club/0_100

Halfway through post two is all about overclocking. Most people would suggest that you change your OC settings in the bios as you will be able to achieve a higher OC there than using a window utility, most likely. What kind of cooling are you using for the CPU and how high are the temps getting?

First off don't use the auto tune that's OC for dummies because you don't have to learn how to do anything. It's very easy to OC a 2700k on that board and I have a 2600k. You might have to do a CMOS reset on your board to clear the exsiting settings and start over from stock. Start with turning XMP on and then change your settings. There's lots of guides on OCN you can follow and how to OC to a level and voltage you're comfortable with.
