Why am I not surprised?

  6. Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver
  7. ASMedia USB 3.0 Driver
  8. ASMedia SATA Controller Driver
So I shouldn't bother with the firmwares and the Intel RST? Also, is there anything useful in the asus utilities? Nice thread by the way. Thanks.

Thanks. smile.gif

The firmwares are totally optional. I do them anyways because they do help with compatibly issues and may make your system more stable.

If you're using RAID, you will need RST. Otherwise you can install it or not. I didn't and my SSD has been performing just fine.

Fan Xpert is what most people seem to prefer. I have a fan controller and don't need it.

But also quite the opposite too.
If you have something disabled in the BIOS, but yet install drivers for it, the service might start, but the pc will not be able to work out what's going wrong.

I think you meant to quote my other post.

Anyways, that is why it's best to uninstall the driver first and then disable it in the BIOS. I have all of my third-party SATA controllers, onboard audio, firewire, and bluetooth disabled in the BIOS. Saves a few seconds booting up and also drive space. teaching.gif

hehe indeed.
I just don't have the "recent" drivers installed - ie. the intel igpu things for example.

I cannot for the life of me get this chip to run cool on a decent OC. Z77 Maximus Gene with a 3570K. This board has so many more options than the Z68 Gene had.

I am just trying to get a cool running 4.2-4.4 out of it, but i cant seem to get the voltage to drop down at idle

Can someone give me some base numbers/settings to start with so I can tweak from there?

Thanks

You are using the offset method of overclocking right? For idle voltage to drop you need:

1) Offset voltage (not manual)
2) Speedstep enabled (possible EIST and C-states as well, not sure though)
3) Turbo mode for frequency overclock (so it can downclock to 1.6GHz)

This is how I have set up my Z77 V-Pro, my system idles around 0.984V @ 1.6GHz, and ramps up to 1.2-1.23V at 4.5GHz on load.
