Exactly the same... When I have to install all that bloated POS just to update the BIOS, I'm getting headache. The BIOS update though, it goes extremely fine. I used it over 7-8 times for my P8P67 and fortunately, only once for my P8Z77 so far.

By the way, there's official 8.015 realtek network driver for Win 8 and 7.072 for Win 7.

So does installer allow you to pick an choose which modules you want, or your forced to install whole package . I could see maybe using few but i tend to try to use bios only adjustments in long run .

Incase you haven't tried yet, yes it allows individual modules instead of all of it. I removed this ages ago and never looked back. Now recently re-installed it for Fan control and TPU module (I like my system OCed and running with all C states enabled and TPU set to MAX power saving).

Haven't seen any performance loss.

Thanks , that is good to know, I hate adding a lot of processes to startup .

You mean you use the EPU tool where you can set different power energy settings , auto ,max energy etc . SO this allows it to switch configs as I thought it lowers CPU mhz and voltages while in energy states , didn't know you could run OC to .

Version 2003
Description SABERTOOTH Z77 BIOS 2003
1.Optimize BIOS configuration
2.Add multiple languages support in BIOS setup.
File Size 4.47 MBytesupdate 2013/06/04
Download from Global

I'm going to flash it for the sake of it.

EDIT:
As posted in the IB OC thread:

OK - something quite odd - updated my Sabretoth to BIOS 2003 (latest) from 1805.
And the DRAM timings seem to have been picked up wrongly?

It seems as if the board wants a 1N command rate, whereas I KNOW beforehand it picked up a 2N command rate and that my RAM is actually rated at 9-9-9-24-2N

Here's the pic:


EDIT 2:
After a reboot, then going bakc into the BIOS - it is now picked it up properly as a 2N command rate.

I've noticed if I'm plugging in other devices to the back of the mobo, if I even slightly bump my USB keyboard or USB mouse in the appropriate slots on the back, Windows 8 beeps like the devices are disconnecting and connecting. Even if I touch these two cables with the slightest of touches.

Even if Windows makes the "disconnected device" sound, it doesnt seem like either device ever loses functionality.

Anyone else notice this? Its only the two USB ports labeled KB/Mouse which exhibit this behavior.

I have the same problem (in Win 7) with those ports on my P8Z77-V Pro, especially the KB one. If I even slightly nudge it when touching one of the other usb ports, my keyboard (Steelseries 6Gv2) disconnects and I have to pull it out and re-plug it every time - it's driving me nuts!!

Okay, I has dumb questions. How up-to-date are these driver updates? Are they going to be better than what my Max V Gene CD came with? Do I install the MVG drivers first, then download the updates and let the original drivers be replaced?

I rarely have either the KB or mouse disconnect, it just sounds like it from the Windows sounds. It's not a huge deal as I'm not too frequently behind there plugging things in.. just thought it was really weird. I'd like to know if its happening to everyone.
