    Default Z68 Extreme4 2.20 is giving me BSOD

    I've tried uninstalling Intel Rapid Start and Intel Smart Connect (which are useless for desktops, btw) technologies but I'm still getting BSOD during games. I even rolled back my video drivers to a version that I know was stable prior to the 2.20 BIOS update. Whatever they did in the latest 2.20 BIOS, they screwed up big time. I noticed in the notes of the BIOS they stated to only flash newer versions of the BIOS. I tried it reinstall 1.70 but the system stayed at 2.20. What are my options at this point? Obviously this is a software issue but if necessary, I'll just replace the motherboard if it means stable gaming.

    Did you try flashing the previous BIOS version. Flashing from BIOS is safer(Instant flash ) than from within Windows

    Yup. It stayed at 2.20 though.

    I even tried turning PLL overvoltage to disabled but I'm still getting BSOD 124.

    Going to try disabling C3 and C6 states as stated in this thread when I get off work:

    Just weird that I never had this issue prior to the latest BIOS update. They never should have added Rapid Start or Smart Connect for this board; desktops don't need it and its just causing problems.

    IMO Rapid start and Smart connect should not affect your boot up.
    Load UEFI defaults and disable smart connect in BIOS.
