No matter how fast I press the keys it just blows right past the screen which only flashes for a second.
Using BIOS 0701, is this stuff ever tested? So here I sit unable to set up RAID and install Windows. The keyboard works in the BIOS but my mouse doesn't no matter which usb port. On my RIVE they both work fine and I could use them in the BIOS. So what voodoo majic do I need to perform in order to get into the RAID config?

You should be on BIOS 881
The best option for the board to detect the keyboard is the USB 2.0 Ports right above ROG Connect.
As far as RAID go's, IDK, make sure you have the right drivers installed first and try changing the ports you are using.
I had to use the Black ports for an XP install, after that I moved them over to a red port once the drivers were installed in the OS.

Edit: I see you have been working on this at XS, so most of what I said you already tired. Keep us posted because I watched your Vid and that is messed up. I have to go to work but I will try some RAID combos when I get home to see what I can come up with.


Got a new 3770K yesterday and was testing all night. Fun chip so far, hit about 2780 10-11-11-31 on the RAM last night but still a ling way to go.

An Asus rep said the sabertooth uses the TUF design made for longevity through quality of parts, but for overclockers the Pro is better and will last anyone as long as they need the motherboard for. Sabertooth has a 5 year warranty for people who want to make sure the mobo will last, but is completely unneeded for regular overclockers on OCN imo.

Numbers doesent matter, quality of the phase rating etc is whats counts, 3 mofsets per phase> 2 mofsets per phase = more amps/current = more efficiency = less TDP = less heat = better oc. Remember Rampage IV Extreme has 8 +3 phase? now please tell me do you really think that the phase array on the pro is better, no? because the Sabertooth and ROG mobos use the same phase array, which is different from all other mobos Asus is offering.

if i dont use SLi /cf would the asus P8z77-V LE be a good choice , and would it overclock to 4.5 GHz with ivy 3570K ?

That would be a good choice or the M V G. And "it" would not overclock it to 4.5 but you could with decent cooling.

Hey I have the P8Z77-V and everything works great save for the onboard audio front and rear ports do not detect my speakers/headphones. The Drivers are recognized and showing no conflicts.
No system crashes or BSODs.

I tried the drivers off the CD and downloaded the latest ones. On infrequent basis a message will pop up saying "device was unplugged" even if I have a jack installed.
Do you guys think it is a hardware problem?

Got a new 3770K yesterday and was testing all night. Fun chip so far, hit about 2780 10-11-11-31 on the RAM last night but still a ling way to go.

I finally got into the RAID config. I will post this resolution just in case anyone else has this issue. So the first two keyboards no matter which USB ports, 2.0, 3.0, ASMedia 3.0 wouldn't work to get into RAID config. I remember I had a third unopened mini-MAC keyboard so I gave that a try. As I was testing all of the USB port's it appeared they weren't working until I got to the last one. Only the very top ASMedia 3.0 port finally let me into the RAID config menu. Not sure how or why this is, or why it takes three different keyboards and only one of the USB port's to work for this. Talk about a finicky motherboard. eek.gif

Oh and my Logitech M570 trackball still doesn't work in the BIOS no matter which USB port I am connected to. First MB (M5G) I've ever had it doesn't work in.
