Asus Z77 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 85

post #841 of 1288
Thanks for the info, I should clarify doing some more testing the Asmedia controller can be enabled in the bios and Intel RST 11.6 will work just fine, the problem starts when I hook up the two storage drives to it, As soon as I do that and reboot back to "IAstorUI has stopped working" The drives are just regular Samsung F4 2TB.....

I recently purchased the Asus P8Z77-V Pro, and it comes with built in "n" Wifi (single 2.4 GHz band). I was wondering what everyone's impressions were of the quality of the wireless performance? I have a Linksys high performance router (EA4500 I believe, 400+ Mbps), and when I used to own my Linksys AE3000 wireless adapter, I would get about 35+ Mbps download/ 6 Mbps upload, but I'm assuming that also has to do with the dual band nature of both the router and the adapter. How does the built-in wifi of the Asus board compare to what I previously had? I want to use the wifi for gaming, streaming, and downloading large Steam files.

Anyone have any insight?

I tested mine a bit, it connected fine at 300Mbps and I got about 9MBps speed from the other side of my house where my router is. That is about 60 feet through two rooms. But my homeplugs give me faster speeds with lower latency so I just disabled it and used them instead. I have a Lenovo X220 with 3 wifi antennae which was about 3 MBps faster in the same location

BIOS post time is longer with 1709 so I'm still thinking 1504 > 1709 > 1617

Tested it out on my -V board. It was fine. compared to my Asus N53 dongle it received about the same signal strength, ~15ft from router, and similar latency and download rate from my modem. I use my dongle for 5.0 band though and the 2.5 band is n/g compatible for my Wii. I use it as a backup. The wire/antenna is a pain the rear though!

The Pro is different than our -V model.. ours is only 150MB/s link.

That said, it's actually not that poor and has good reception at least at my place. Was quite surprised that's it's bearable for online gaming too.

Ya even at 150Mbps latency and packet transfer rates were good enough for gaming.

I still have not played with the remote AP settings yet. Do you need to use the Onboard Wireless to do the remote access? Or does it work with any adapter?

Yeah that might be why my pc posts slower. Never thought it could be bios related!

Hi guys,

I have the Sabertooth Z77 and I've been wondering if RST 11.6 and the modded bios work fine with this board and if not, which RST should I install with unmodded 1708?

Also, should I upgrade the IME firmware?

Cheers!
