Yes VCCIO and VCCSA is memory, had to downclock VCCIO to 1.6 in order to get rid of BSOD 124. PCH was the only logical choice left but needed to be sure. I believe 1.2 is the max safe voltage?

Wait, 1.6v?! Surely you meant 1.16v?

I think the max safe voltage for PCH is 1.15v. Does it give a warning or change color the higher you go?
post #445 of 1288
Sorry PPL voltage is the one I downclocked to 1.6v and VCCIO I overclocked to 1.14 still need to go down on that - only clocked higher because of tighter timings. My VCCSA is on Auto. LLC is on Ultra High - the only setting that gets me stable at 1.4v at load x47 multiplier and 0.010 + offset.

It does indeed change colour, if I get another BSOD 116 I will change it to 1.15 as you mentioned right before it changes colour and see.

When I think of NB volts, I'm thinking QPI/VTT...hence VCCIO, or VCCSA if Z77 doesn't have VCCIO. Now that could be wrong two generations of mobos on, with the IMC on the processor....I thought PCH was the Southbridge equivalent?

For VCCIO (QPI/VTT), test for the lowest stable voltage. Every CPU, even of the same exact model, can slightly vary with this value, so it is always best to test and make sure it is just right. As with any type of overclocking, you want to get the precise voltage necessary.

The Platform Controller Hub (PCH) is a family of Intel microchips. I/O Functions have been reassigned between the PCH, a new central hub, and the CPU. Some northbridge functions, the memory controller and PCI-e lanes, were integrated into the CPU while the PCH took over the remaining functions in addition to the traditional roles of the southbridge.

Am I not getting something here?

Now I dont have a clue what setting it is. You are right, it is South Bridge voltage and not North Bridge voltage so maby its VCCSA / IO ?

My Z68 has both, so not sure. I subbed here when I was thinking of upgrading from Sandy to Ivy, and then I was left wondering if I should upgrade mobo, but doesn't seem worth it to me. Maybe next generation.

grambo, or anyone else, have you ever heard back about this issue?
I have the ASUS Maximus V Gene, and the Asmedia controlled 6G ports cannot be configured in the BIOS. They are IDE by default and you can't set them to ACHI or other mode. Like you say, it only gives the options to enable/disable and ROM on/off.
Now here is the problem with that: Those Asmedia 6G ports are clearly for hooking up additional Sata3 SSD's. Well, I have two SSD's, one is the OS drive that I put on the Intel controlled 6G port, and the other I put on the Asmedia controlled port. But because the Asmedia ports cannot be configured, the system reads the Asmedia connected SSD as Disk 0, and the Intel controlled one as Disk 1.
When I install Windows to the Intel drive (via USB), when the install process has to reboot, it cannot find the Intel controlled drive because the other drive connected to Asmedia controller is seen as the first drive. Even when I disable the Asmedia controlled SSD from the boot order and HDD order, I cannot get the system to boot into the Intel-controlled SSD I'm installing the OS to, UNLESS I unplug the Asmedia controlled SSD.
So basically, IDE is taking precedence over ACHI (my Intel controlled SSD is in ACHI mode), so the Asmedia controlled SSD prevents the reboot into the Intel-controlled SSD. So this means you can't install Windows to your Intel controlled SSD when you have a SSD hooked up to the Asmedia controller as well.
This is unacceptable to me, as I bought this board to be a stable power board that would help in what I intended to do with it: namely, sysprep and create Windows images, run VM's, do many actual OS installs to test drivers over hardware platforms, etc. So I will be installing Windows hundreds if not thousands of times on this board. So now I will be unplugging the Asmedia connected drives every time I install Windows? I don't think so ASUS mad.gif
I can tell you this: I would NEVER, NEVER, NEVER have bought this Maximus V Gene motherboard if I knew it was going to do that. I have a P8Z68 Deluxe board, and an MSI-Z68MA-ED55(b3) and I have never experienced such an amateur problem with any board in my life. I'm really disappointed in ASUS right now. "JJ" talking bull**** on NewEgg as if they went all out with these boards. Well, it's not going all out if you limit configuration options for the non-Intel controllers, effectively putting the drives connected to those in primary position, causing the Intel controlled drives to be overlooked during OS install. This is unacceptable.
Please tell me there is solution to this, or that ASUS is going to upgrade their retarded BIOS for these boards...

Hey Troubad,

Unfortunately, I think you are correct in that there does not seem to be a way to configure the ASMedia SATA controller in terms of IDE/AHCI mode (and any other relevant options). This is strange considering I was able to configure the 3rd party JMicron SATA controller as AHCI/IDE and other options on my P5B-Deluxe which was a 5+ year old board!

The issue I have experienced is that hotswap does not work properly on the ASMedia ports, I have to power on my eSATA enclosure before booting or the drives will not show up in Windows, and I also cannot safely remove the drives once they are detected in Windows. I haven't experienced the exact issue you are describing, as I only use the ASMedia ports for external eSATA back-up drives. What I would suggest is that if you only have to SATA3 SSDs, connect them both to the two Intel SATA3 ports, and only use the ASMedia ports once you've used all 6 Intel SATA3/2. Even though the ASMedia are SATA3, the performance is not as good as the Intel SATA3 from what I've read (have not tested myself).

It seems like there are issues with the ASMedia implementation on Z77 boards. One thing you can do is post a message on the Hardforum.com forum in the official Asus Z77 support there, as a rep "Raja" can relay issues to Asus HQ. Another option is the official Asus forums, which are horribly laid out and I cannot reliably log into.

Just a quick update on my BSOD 116, since using driver sweeper and removing the gfx card drivers and installing new ones I'm running stable with no issues what so ever.
