Asus Z77 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 48

I have a feeling that they were using the USB 3.0 ports which unless you have the driver(s) integrated into the OS installer, it won't detect your drives or BSOD when you launch the installer.

It was me that brought it up, was using USB2 port through hub on monitor that didn't work. As you say USB2 ports are OK on back panel, front or top also work fine. To be honest never tried USB3 as I wouldn't expect them to work with W7 SP1 installer.

SSD Caching.

Hi ppl.

I use my intel SSD as my boot drive.

But I also want to use my old 500GB HD as a storage drive, a secondary drive if you like smile.gif

My question is: Does this motherboard has a build in SSD that I can use for SSD caching for the secondary HD when I need better performance if I install games on it?

Thanks

Hey guys with your overclocks on the P8Z77-V Pro what are your settings for CPU Current Compatibility and VRM Spread Spectrum. I have CPU @ 140 although the default autos to 100 even with my OC and I have the VRM enabled as it says it enhances system stability.

Just wondering what everyone else is using?

EDIT: A little strange I think... I just dropped the CPU current compatibility from 140 to 100 and the voltage is slightly higher when testing with prime95. Is this how it is supposed to work? It says you can attain higher OCs with higher values so why would it drop the voltage as your raise the compatibility?

Can anyone tell if ASUS P8Z77-V-Deluxe uses ASM1041/ASM1042 USB3 Controller ??

How can I verify the Firmware version and the driver version of the USB3 controller?

I know for sure it uses Asmedia ASM 106x SATA Controller - For SATA, but what's for USB3?

With the Z77 Express chipset, Intel finally gives us four native USB 3.0 ports, none of which require an extra PCI-E lane. However, on the P8Z77-V Deluxe, ASUS also includes four additional USB 3.0 ports, courtesy of two ASMEdia ASM1042 controllers.

Thanks.
I want to see if the new firmware update and driver update will solve the bugs I experience.

does anyone know why my voltage drop when i use prime95? I manually set it to 1.35v on the bios..on idl my voltages is 1.336ish which is like good CPU does smile.gif and when stress the it drops to 1.32v then crash after a minute under prime95. I tried changing the calibration to from medium to high but doesnt help.

Anytime you put 100% load no the CPU it will draw the power. Just increase your Vcore to compensate.

I increased the voltage but it yields even higher voltage to 1.39v frown.gif.. I heard of Offset so im trying to figure it out as we speak! Im running a +offset of 0.215 and it gives me the 1.336-1.34v it was capable of and on 5mins stress on Prime95. (+offset of 0.21 it crashed within 10mins lol...)
thnx for the help!
