The extra phase is probably for the iGPU. If you do plan on getting either board make sure you add some heatsinks over the mosfets. wink.gif

I'm using Windows 8 and it won't let me install those unless I'm doing something wrong. When trying to install it says my system doesn't meet the requirements or something like that.

Intel hasn't released a Windows 8 driver for their USB 3.0.

Since I had only recently installed Windows 8, I decided to do more testing by removing that installation and doing a clean Windows 7 install. Bottom line is I still have the same problem using all of the updated drives with Windows 7.

Some new info: at first the GoFlex drive worked perfectly fine for a few hours of having me plugging it in and out or just leaving it in. However, all of a sudden, it started the same cycle of disapearing. Sometimes I would plug it in and be able to access whatever was on the drive, then it would dissapear and I would get device could not start code 10 warnings in device manager. Other times, right when I plugged it in, it would say the drive needed to be formated. Sometimes, it would just work. Other times it would say the driver needed to be reinstalled.

I also had another Goflex drive that I hadn't opened yet, so I decided to try it out- same result. I did notice that it's port #0006 hub #0001 that is having the problem. Whenever I plug in a USB 2.0 device it is saying port #0002 hub #0001 is in use and I have not experienced any problems with those devices, only when using a USB 3.0 device.

Since this occurs in both Windows 7 and 8 with appropriate drivers, it appears to me that the problem is definitely related to the Asus board. It can only mean that the board is broken, or that's just how the board is (meaning faulty design), or maybe the BIOS needs to be updated by Asus? I would like to know your opinions on whether or not I should go on a exchange/RMA spree, or just use the other ports in the hope that this is a BIOS issue that may get fixed in the future?

If the board is not working to your liking and you can exchange it or get a refund, I would do that.

Ok thnx !

Since i´m going to use a discrete GFX card i guess i wont miss that phase, since i assume the cpu will just shut the GPU part of since it wont be in use.
Also it looks at least to me like the LX2 allready got heatsinks on everything except the chokes and capacitors

So is the LX2 an improvment over the LX or just a way to cut costs, there are no reviews and it does have fewer components......

iGPU will shut off, if you set it to shut-of, by that I mean disabling it in the BIOS and more so setting your PCI-E as main display.

New BIOS out at least for few boards .. 1805.

On the Z77-V the ROM versions are still all old (if someone has newer than listed below please let me know).

ME firmware on it seems to be: 8.1.2.1318 but it won't over-write whatever you've installed.

162 = 2132 vs. 2143 2158

1502 = 1.3.81 vs. 1.4.03

282a = 11.0.0.1339 vs. 11.6.0.1702

edit: there's a new one for 162 = version 2158 and is included in the Intel® HD Graphics Driver 15.28.12.2932 package.
