Don't ley Psy hear you say that Tenno! You'll get chewed out as if he's told us this a thousand times. rolleyes.gif
I posted on Hard and hopefully the Asus rep can confirm what it actually means. You and I both see the changelog and taking it for what it's worth. If Asus says "support PCIE gen3" we have to assume it means it can right? tongue.gif

Maybe you guys can find a little more info about the whole PCI-E 3.0 here:

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...l#post15235826

I believe a different chipset called PLX that allows the potential of PCI-E 3.0 bandwith and afaik it's not present on any Asus motherboard as of yet, hence the release of GEN3 mobo's in the very near future, however I'm not entirely sure, still learning about Ivy and gen3 lol.

Hope that helps clear things up

The current range of Asus mobos have PLX chips (like on the deluxe) it's just those specific PLX chips only support PCIe2 hence the new revision of the deluxe and the like. I still don't understand/believe that the WS revo really has support for PCIe3 but maybe it has to do with our NF200 chip because the only other Asus board with a NF200 chip I'm aware of (the Maximus Extreme) doesn't have a Gen 3 revision, but they haven't mentioned PCIe3 support for it yet.

ok, just to clear up the confusion:

Currently, due to hardware compatibility issues, PCI-Express 3.0 support will be disabled on all of the current Asus gen 2 motherboards that support SLI even with the updated BIOS, including the P8P67 Deluxe. (A BIOS update for the P8P67 Deluxe will support the new Ivy Bridge CPUs, but the PCI-Express support will be limited to PCI-Express 2.0.)

This means that if you want both SLI and PCI-Express 3.0 support, you must purchase a new P8Z68 Gen3 series board. The BIOS updates will add PCI-Express 3.0 support to existing Asus gen 2 boards will only be available to those boards that lack SLI support.

here is the chart:

Intel RST 10.6.2.1001 WHQL drivers are out on Station Drivers.

Not sure if they are recommended or not, yet.

It has to do with the splitting of the x16 slot into 8x8 (the PLX chip), they just say SLI to make it easier...So yah, crossfire too...

Anyhow, it feels pretty fast as it is so I'm hoping I won't have to replace it. Had it installed for a couple of days now and no BSOD's yet.

I hereby bow to you guys helping me out

BTW, I think the issue got resolved with OCZ's newest firmware that was released a few days ago.

Doesn't matter, Intel makes incredible robust drives (mine is still ticking) and has outstanding customer support.

Yeah I read about the firmware upgrade when I bought the Intel, but if I remember correctly OCZ had an earlier firmware that was "supposed" to fix BSODs, so I wouldn't be to sure about this one. But for all the people tearing their hair over it I would hope so.
It was kinda sad for me, as I had just built my dream machine that I had saved up to for about a year, and I just couldn't figure out what was going wrong. Didn't dare to OC or anything that I had been waiting to do with my new build. Never had a drive fail on me like that before... but the OCZ was my first SSD - lesson learned.

If this one proves to be solid I'm going to stick with Intel SSD's
