just updated my P8Z68-V/Gen3 to the latest BIOS (3304)
long story short, filled out an RMA form and waiting for response so I can send this piece of garbage back to ASUS
flash went fine. once it finished, it didn't POST. finally figured out that it was my RAM (had zero issues with the memory on the original bios). it's only detecting 8 GB (2 dimms) of my 16GB, and not allowing me to adjust the speed on the memory either. if I try to change the memory to anything except 1066 (the memory is DDR3-2000 XMS3), NO POST.
also, it completely removed CPU Ratio adjustment (cannot adjust CPU ratio under CPU settings/configuration, if I change it from Auto to my previous OC (48x), it defaults back to 34.
CPU Ratio has disappeared on the AI tweaker page) after selecting XMP or Manual for the OC option.
god damn it
