Have you tried updating the BIOS to 0501?

Ah good, I noticed you removed the Z68 from the P67 thread and was glad to see this one created already. The people could use a huge wealth of information for Z68 like you gave us from P67 already. This is the thread that I saw that made me think this thread was needed.

Thanks for putting this lists together. I just picked up the P8Z68 Deluxe and plan to use this thread to get all the latest drivers for everything!

Is the ticket to use the Intel SATA ports rather than the marvell ones? I seem to have stumbled across information on the internet where the marvell ones can have issues. Can anyone confirm?

There will be a performance loss using the Marvell ports. If you have multiple drives, try putting the least performing ones on the Marvell SATA ports.

I disable mine since I'm only using two drives (SSD and HDD). Also helps speed up POST.

I just built a new rig this week, specs below, and this thread was amazing for finding all the newest drivers.

Thanks you for all of your hard work.

For the P67 that was solved by a BIOS update, not sure if it's been addressed yet for you guys though. It may be annoying to see it but just try to ignore it until you have a better reason to flash the BIOS and you're sure they have fixed that, not worth the risk of a BIOS flash for just that alone.

Hi Guys/Gals

Not sure if any of U hav experienced a double splash screen from ASUS when you boot up. Some people are calling it a boot loop and seems to be inherent problem from the P67 boards

Glad to report after following numerous suggestions from other threads I've managed to solve it (on my rig anyhow)

Enter BIOS/Advanced Mode - Under the 'ADVANCED' tab go to 'Onboard Devices Configuration' and under the JMB storage controller disable the 'Display OptionROM in post'

This prevents the JMB storage controller (used for eSATA port on mobo) to report during post thus preventing it from interupting the splash screen and making it appear that it is loading twice.

ALSO GO TO BOOT and under OptionROM messages change from 'Force BIOS' to 'Keep Current'

Again it'll prevent from interupting the splash screen and shave off a few seconds from boot time, cos when your rig boots in W7 in under 35secs it matters!

You can also display splash screen under boot, not sure if it'll save time but then you wont be able to customize it with your own logo

Feedback to whether this helped would be appreciated

Hey Guys,

I am having trouble with slow SSD 3 speeds with this particular motherboard/SSD3 drive
I've read a few forums here and no doubt its me being a noob however I will try to reel off what Ive done and hopefully can get some expert advice!

I have the following relevant Hardware
Motherboard:p8Z68-V Pro
CPU: Intel i7-2600K
Harddrive: OCZ Vertex SATA 3
Operating System: Windows 7 64bit

When I run the CrystalDiskMark Utility, I get OK read speeds (roughly 470ish) but the write speeds at best hit 135ish
It was my understanding that the SSD3 drives should be able to read 500+ reads and writes?

I have installed the updated drivers as per the notes in the first post but it really didn't make any effect. ( I havent reinstalled windows since however)
Windows is installed on the SSD 3 drive as well.
I confirmed that in the bios it was not set as IDE.
I have the SSD 3 connected to the grey sata3 port0 and another 2TB HDD in the grey sata3 port1.
I also followed the advice on (
http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?88340-Vertex-3-Windows-install-in-AHCI-mode-on-Intel-6-series-Chipset-platforms)

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! again, could be something silly on my behalf.

Thanks in advance!

You need the Intel Management Engine Driver
