    Default ASUS Official Z68 Chipset Motherboards - Support Thread

    This thread will be used to provide official support for ASUS Z68 chipset motherboards. Share your experience, tips tricks and place support/technical queries in this thread please. :)



    BIOS 0501 is due to go up soon, this will be for all current Z68 motherboards (P8Z68-V, Pro, Deluxe).

    The fix-list is as follows.

    1. Update RAID OPROM to version 10.5.0.1034 to enable the support of Intel Rapid Storage Technology version 10.5.0.1026
    2. Allow adjustment of Turbo Ratio for the K series CPU regardless of the status of the C-STATE option.

    Note: For proper operation, please ensure to update Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver to version 10.5.0.1026 before enabling Intel Smart Response Technology.
    Update procedure for users needing Intel Smart Response Technology:

    (1) Enter OS, and ensure Intel Smart Response Technology has been turned off under Intel Rapid Storage Technology interface.
    (2) Install version Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver to version 10.5.0.1026.
    (3) Reboot the system, and update BIOS to version 0501, then reboot.
    (5) Enter the BIOS setup screen, press F5 to load BIOS default, then change the Intel SATA Port to RAID mode.
    (4) Boot into OS, and re-enable Intel Smart Response Technology under Intel Rapid Storage Technology.



    Lucid have also released a new beta Virtu driver:

    Lucid Virtu changes include: Support HTML 5.0 & Bug fixing in supported games



    As always please ensure you have the latest Intel Chipset, LAN and Management Engine Interface drivers loaded along with AI Suite II or ROG Connect utilities.

    Default Re: ASUS Official Z68 Chipset Motherboards - Support Thread

    I am attempting to finish my first build and I've hit an annoying snag. During POST, my mobo beeps when the status lights hit the boot device LED and it stays on. My mobo recognizes my DVD writer and my SSD as potential boot devices. I was able to install WIN7 PRO on my SSD and everything seems to be working fine (other than a CPU temperature of 60 degrees C, but that's another story). Any suggestions?

    Oh, and I can't seem to find the quick boot option in my bios so that I can bypass POST. Would anyone know where that is?


    CONFIGURATION:

    UEFI BIOS, version 0221
    Asus z68 pro mobo
    i7 2600k
    mushkin callisto 60 gb ssd
    ocz 750w fatality psu
    ASUS DVD writer
    16 GB corsair vengeance ram
    EVGA GTX 460

    I updated to 0501 and now the CPU LED lights up. My computer no longer turns on.

    Did the BIOS flash complete? This is the first case I have heard of where 0501 does not POST. I assume you've gone through the regular procedure of clearing the CMOS, using only one DIMM etc? If so drop me a PM and I'll get something sorted out for you.

    Hi all, I have this board and currently building my machine. last night I downloaded the lastest intel graphics drivers and tried to install it. I unzipped the file and it seems there are several folders and setup.exe files. I wasn't sure which to install, but I ran a few setup.exe files and i'm always getting the error "an error occured while registering one or more components. Setup will exit". I ran C:\...\intel_graphics_v815102372_VistaWin7\winvist a7_64\install\setup.exe this morning and got the same message. has anyone come across this? I'm running win7 64bit. If you haven't encountered this, can you please look in your device manager under Display Adapters and tell me what it says? I want to compare it with mine. thanks

    Exclamation Intel Graphics

    I ran the top-level AsusSetup executable. I received the following error message:

    This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software.

    I have submitted a support ticket with Asus. If Raja in this thread would respond, I would appreciate it.

    I'm also running Windows 7 64-bit. The only display adapter listed in Device Manager is the one for my discrete graphics card; there is none for the integrated Intel graphics.

    If I don't plan to use the smart technology can I leave the current bios version or is it needed to clear up other issues I might run into? I ordered the board after researching and seeing good reviews and I am pretty savvy on building systems.

    Did you remove the older drivers first? Sometimes if you install over older drives you can run into a driver conflict.

    Thumbs up Re: Intel Graphics

    As I said, there was no driver for the iGPU. I did figure it out late last night: you need to enable Virtu in the BIOS to successfully install the Intel Graphics and Lucid Virtu drivers.
