Ethernet driver 17.3
Intel RST .. pick your version (11.2 is probably safest)
There's newer iGPU driver and Virtu MVP also but I don't use those.
Both of my Asmedia Controllers (USB and SATA) had old firmware which can be updated and there is a newer Intel vBIOS ROM which you can mod into the BIOS.

Do you have a link to a guide on how to check the firmware version of the ASMedia SATA controller? And how to update it (I assume requires modded BIOS).

Also where are you seeing ASMedia 1.3.8.0 for Z77 boards? I can only see 1.3.4.0 on Asus' and Softpedia.com.

For the Asmedia SATA driver, Station-Drivers.

http://www.station-drivers.com/page/asmedia.htm

The USB firmware update is slightly painful, download the "Version 12220E Pour Windows Xp/Vista/7 32/64bits" and unpack it somewhere. Then run in pure-dos to launch it. It will show you your current version before asking if you want to update.

The SATA firmware update is odd and I can't really recommend doing this. Our BIOS used to have it as a ROM but back around 3 versions ago it was removed for some reason. You can manually add it back into the BIOS using MMTOOL using the BIN file from "Version N0951 (Ide/Ahci)".

Hey guys, just got a p8Z77-V in for a friend and I loaded all the parts onto my test bench but when I tried to start it up it failed to post. I noticed the red LED was on near the DIMM slots so I started to test the RAM one by one and it seems that the Samsung sticks that I ordered are bad. I put in two old sticks of Mushkin and the board posted.

On a side note, does anyone else have a huge problem getting RAM out of the slot? This is the first board that I have used that only has the little RAM release tabs on one side. They are always a struggle to get out. Maybe I am doing something wrong?

Sounds a bit like my experience when I got this board. When I booted up the new RAM appeared dead because the DIMM light was red. I replaced them with my old RAM and all was good.

I then tested the new RAM one place at a time until it picked it up and I knew something else was wrong. I ended up having to 'wiggle' the RAM slightly for it to pick it up. Haven't had a problem since.

About getting the RAM out or in... it's pretty normal IMO, no extra force needed.

No issues with the RAM for me. Initial setup did require me to first push the RAM Auto button on the motherboard. I think what happened was the BIOS did not detect the correct settings, so pushing that button forces the motherboard to find a working config for the RAM. No wiggling necessary.

Make sure to use the 2nd and 4th slots when using only two sticks.
The Ram slots are slightly tighter than my old DDR2 slots on my old Mobo, figured it was just DDR3.

Thanks. I've heard about modding the BIOS to include the ASMedia OPROM, but frankly the idea of modding a UEFI/BIOS file to include extra data is something that scares me a bit and I am not willing to do.

It's weird Asus removed it. I was hoping with a newer ASMedia OPROM/Windows driver I might be able to get hotplug functionality to work reliably on the ASMedia SATA ports which I use for my eSATA back-up unit. I have to reboot whenever I want to power the unit on for a back-up right now, which is every 2 weeks, not a huge deal but annoying that it doesn't work the way it is supposed to.

Trying to get G.SKILL Ares Series 32GB (F3-1866C10Q-32GAB) to work with my Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe board (BIOS 1504). Can only get it to be stable at 1800 Mhz and not a hertz more. If I try to use XMP profile 1 or 2 the computer won't post. Any suggestions what to do?

Hi... I have the P8Z77-V LX and my Samsung RAM's worked just fine. Was love at first sight betweem them. On my past ASUS motherboards (990FX) when ever I had a problem with RAM, I always went for the MemOK! button and always resolved any incompatibility issues between the mobo and the RAM.

Just wanted to throw that out there because I have seen several people post that they have RAM issues on their Z77's but I rarely (if ever) see anyone mention they tried the MemOK! button.
