Asus P67 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 82

post #811 of 3000
Did anyone else have trouble closing the CPU socket? It seemed to me that I had to push down really hard to close the retaining arm. I heard a squisy/crunchy sound and I'm worried that I've bent some of the pins. This is my first build so I don't know what to compare it to but in most build tutorial videos I've seen the arm closed much easier that mine did.

Also, are there any guides out there for OCing with the new EFI BIOS? This will be my first overclock so I'm wondering how much the procedure is different from a traditional BIOS.

And what is everyone putting the TPU/EPU (I think that's what they're called,) switches on? I have them both switched on ATM since they sound pretty beneficial, but would turning one/both of them off give better performance?

Thanks!

I'd love to hear about the TPU/EPU switches as well. Has anyone had success with them on and using the UEFI to auto tune the system? If so, what sort of results has it achieved. Just received P67 deluxe board #2 - #1 is on the way back on rma.

YES! I was really really worried when it wouldn't boot too. I thought i'd busted up the CPU. Was just a case of RAM-OK was on though.

Here's a really good guide written by an asus-rep on H forums.

It helped me out tremendously.

It's not much different from the ordinary BIOS. Just enter advanced mode first.

I have the EPU switch turned on. It basically "changes" the defaults of your BIOS and after that really doesn't do anything, from what I read.

what is interesting about that guide is that it seems to pretty much tell you to put everything to auto!

I have just tried their recommendations and I got to say that I am getting really good results. But it just now seems so simple to overclock.

Asus is strange...earlier today they had the updated BIOS on there website for the WS Revolution and now that i'm now it's gone. Good thing it's an easy find here!

My OCZ vertex just stopped being detected by the BIOS. Just out of luck i decided to enable to realtek storage and it was detected again, even though it's nothing to do with that.

Very strange...

I know! I guess I could take it out and check it with a magnifier, but I just finished putting it together, I really don't want to have to take everything apart again.

If it was damaged it would show up in memtest or stability testing/benchmarking though, right?

Thanks!
Mine felt a little rough to clamp down and I heard some funny noises.
