    Default Can i flash a p67 board with a z68 bios?

    I have a ud4 b3 (p67) and i was wondering if it would be possible to flash my board with a z68 ud4 bios. I'd like to do this so i can get the multiple level llc option that my bios lacks.

    If i can't is there any modded bios/ beta bios that will give me the option for multiple level llc? Vdroop is about .024 with llc enabled on my board, and i'd really like to enable an option to have positive vdroop or keep it stagnant. My chip is stable at 5GHz with 1.44v at load but in order to do so, i have to set my idle vcore to 1.464 due to the droop.

    thank you

    no
    and most likely no.
    If and only if u have a removable cmos.ie a socketed chip it might be worth experimenting and even then you could still wreck your board.

    Things like on chip gx support/ssd cache ,which u might argue should have been on p67 but arent but from another point of view may limit your overclock performance if they are included isnt covered by an overall adapter bios.
    You mess it up n Gig will say ts, Im fairly sure.

    You can look here ***Official***Z68X/P67A-UD7 Club/Discussion/Info** I know I saw it mentioned in here before I tried looking for it again but did not find it. I got up to page 101 before giving up. I believe stasio posted it. It was a modded bios and once you flash it you could continue to flash with z68x bios's. I just dont know if your board was covered. I know the ud7 and possibly the ud5 were covered.

    Side note; If you do find the info and if you do decide to flash, you have to be warned that if you need to RMA your board and you have this modded or Z68x bios installed your warranty will most likely be void. Use at your own risk.

    Ace is correct, the BIOSes for that are posted in the thread he linked (And the BIOS thread here too.

    If you can't find them maybe shoot a PM to Stasio as he may be able to find you a link quicker from searching through where he uploads all the BIOSes.
