And mine is the opposite. I can use the internet right after boot up and after sleep. Faster than my TP link USB dongle.

I installed the latest Intel Management Engine Driver: 8.1.0.1143 for my Asus P8Z77-V Pro, but I have not updated the ME firmware and the bios still states version 8.0.2.1410.

Could it be bad to update only driver and not perform the firmware update?

I have a dual fan cpu cooler with separate pwm connectors, the fan attached to the CPU_FAN header registers in the UEFI, but the CPU_OPT does not - is there a setting I missed to get this to read the rpm?
Thanks for any help!

Didn't see this one answered, the two CPU headers share the same circuit such that any control of the CPU_FAN header is passed to the OPT header. You should still see both headers reporting separately in monitoring software, but I believe it is only showing the readings from CPU_FAN.

Drivers don't perform FW updates. You need a firmware tool in order to do so. Unfortunately there aren't any that are related to the latest driver version yet.

Thanks for answering that! I figured it would be the case, but in the bios for the OPT header it just says N/A. Never mind, it seems to be doing the job!


Quick noob question about overclocking the rig in my sig. I have read all the guides and forum posts I can find but I'm still a little confused:

I am aiming for 4.5GHz (x45 multi). Everything is on auto except that Speedstep is disabled, and I am using X.M.P. mode. I have entered a manual cpu voltage (in my case 1.230v in bios, which gives 1.224v idle and 1.216v under load) which in early testing seems fairly stable.

I would like to re-enable Speedstep and have lower power usage at idle, so as I understand it I have to use Offset voltage.

When I re-enter the bios and change from manual to offset cpu voltage, is the offset taken from my previously manually entered cpu voltage (ie 1.230v)?

The reason I ask is because when I did this, and then entered an offset of +0.005v (LLC at 50%), cpuz gives an idle of 1.280v and a load of 1.256v....confused.gif

It's based on your CPUs VID which varies upon chip.

You have probably tried the obvious stuff, like reinstalling the driver.
At least one other Z77 user has had a similar problem. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/40194-42-signal-strength-asus-slot-woes He did not persist with the onboard, but put a PCIe card in.

Ok so if my VID for 4.5GHz is 1.280 but I am stable with a manual voltage of 1.230, my offset should be -0.050v? That seems quite high compared to others on this forum, or is it still ok?

Don't have a IB myself but you're also using a LLC of 50% which makes it seem about right. If you want to lower your voltage, use a higher LLC but you'll also experience slightly higher temperatures at load.

Ok I'll give it a shot, thanks very much for helping out!
