Asus Z77 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 66

post #651 of 1288
Does bios 1606 natively come with the 11.5.0.1582 OROM, or did you mod it?
post #652 of 1288
I recently bought the LX model without researching it thoroughly and have come to realize that this motherboard cannot SLI. I wouldn't mind the option to be available for me in the future if I choose to SLI, but isn't absolutely required. I plan to buy an eVGA GTX 680 Superclocked Signature in a few months to replace my GTS 450. It also only has 4 fan connectors on the board when my case I was looking to buy has 5 fans.

I was reading on another forum about how the LX also doesn't have heat spreaders for the VRM around the socket, is this going to be an issue while keeping a constant 4.5ghz overclock? Would it be worth it to exchange the LX for an LK, LE, LE Plus, or a standard V to satisfy what I am looking for?

Comes with v.11.0.0.1339 so you need to mod it if you want to.

I have modded it. Extracted new OROM with MMTool from original P8Z77-V-DELUXE 1502 and replaced in P8Z77-V 1606.
Flashing of modified .CAP must be done by USB Flashback

P8Z77-V-DELUXE has Option ROM it in Volume 02 at Index 5D
P8Z77-V in Volume 02 at index 5E

Replaced ROM for Device ID 8086,282a

I think you may of wanted the LK model (the cheaper option with good functionality)

On sale at Newegg.

I love my P8Z77-V and recommend it.

I think the LX model can do a 4.5 overclock ok, while there are no heatsinks on the VRM's they are good quality, although I don't know if the ones on the LX are the same as the -V (speaking as a V owner). I imagine the LX bios is more limited though so it might be harder to get that 4.5 clock.

I have an ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE with a 2600k... Overclocked it to 5.5 and ran cinebench =]
cinebench-55ghz.jpg
Result...
It's an incredible board! I have 2 Vertex3s in RAID0 with TRIM support (modded bios) and they're flying! It's giving me no problems at all... Using it for over a month now...
Recommend!

I downloaded the Asmedia USB 3 Version 1.16.1.0 driver from Station-Drivers and found out that it contains the older v1.14.3.0 drivers for Windows 7/XP/Vista! confused.gif

The windows 7 folder contains the older version, but the windows 8 folder contains the v1.16.1.0. I have manually updated it to the ones found inside the windows 8 folder successfully based on the reply from Station Drivers.

I have a problem with copy big files(about 1GB+) to USB flash drives, the USB flashdrive is formatted NTFS. When I begin to copy the file it says the speed is like 130MB/s(clearly wrong and unrealistic), then it hangs, then it takes very long time before it updates its progress, kinda one update per 5 minutes. During the copy I also have problem launching certain applications like Google Chrome, the computer is still fast and responsive but some application cant launch properly. Tried different USB-ports/USB-drives and the problem is same, its usb 2.0 devices, dont have any 3.0 I can try with. I dont have this problem with my usb 2.0 hardrive, the problem is only with flash devices.

Anyone heard anything like this before? Got any tip to solve it?

Windows 7
Asus P8Z77-V PRO 1504 BIOS
Intel Rapid Storage driver 11.2.0.1006 (tried older same problem)
Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver: 1.0.5.235
ASMedia USB 3.0 Driver: 1.16.1.0
