SSD Speed with HDD Capacity
Intel® Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance by using an installed
fast SSD (min 18.6GB available capacity required) as a cache for frequently accessed data.
Key benefits include reduced load and wait times, and lower power consumption through the
elimination of unnecessary hard drive spin. This technology combines SSD performance with
hard drive capacity, operating up to 6X faster than a hard drive-only system.
* Intel® Smart Response Technology is supported by 3rd/2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor
family on Windows® 7™ operating systems.
** Operating systems must be installed on the HDD to launch Intel® Smart Response Technology.
The capacity of the SSD is reserved for caching function.
Intel® Smart Connect Technology
Your computer could receive web updates with fresh content for selected applications, even
when setting the system to sleep. This means less time waiting for applications to start,
update and sync with the cloud, providing a more efficient way.
Intel® Rapid Start Technology
Allows your computer to quickly resume from a lower-power hibernate state in seconds.

•
The LGA1156 CPU is incompatible with the LGA1155 socket. DO NOT install a
LGA1156 CPU on the LGA1155 socket.
•
Upon purchase of the motherboard, ensure that the PnP cap is on the socket and
the socket contacts are not bent. Contact your retailer immediately if the PnP cap
is missing, or if you see any damage to the PnP cap/socket contacts/motherboard
components. ASUS will shoulder the cost of repair only if the damage is shipment/
transit-related.
•
Keep the cap after installing the motherboard. ASUS will process Return Merchandise
Authorization (RMA) requests only if the motherboard comes with the cap on the
LGA1155 socket.

Memory configurations
You may install 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB unbuffered and non‑ECC DDR3 DIMMs into the
DIMM sockets.
Chapter 2
•
You may install varying memory sizes in Channel A and Channel B. The system maps
the total size of the lower-sized channel for the dual-channel configuration. Any excess
memory from the higher-sized channel is then mapped for single-channel operation.
•
Due to Intel® 2nd generation processors' behavior, DDR3 2200/2000/1800 MHz
memory module will run at DDR3 2133/1866/1600 MHz frequency as default.
•
According to Intel CPU spec, DIMM voltage below 1.65V is recommended to protect
the CPU.
•
Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum compatibility, we
recommend that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor.
•
Due to the memory address limitation on 32-bit Windows OS, when you install 4GB
or more memory on the motherboard, the actual usable memory for the OS can be
about 3GB or less. For effective use of memory, we recommend that you do any of the
following:
- Use a maximum of 3GB system memory if you are using a 32-bit Windows OS.
- Install a 64-bit Windows OS when you want to install 4GB or more on the
motherboard.
For more details, refer to the Microsoft® support site at
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929605/en-us.
•
This motherboard does not support DIMMs made up of 512Mb (64MB) chips or less
(Memory chip capacity counts in Megabit, 8 Megabit/Mb = 1 Megabyte/MB).
•
The default memory operation frequency is dependent on its Serial Presence Detect
(SPD), which is the standard way of accessing information from a memory module.
Under the default state, some memory modules for overclocking may operate at a
lower frequency than the vendor-marked value. To operate at the vendor-marked
or at a higher frequency, refer to section 3.4 Ai Tweaker menu for manual memory
frequency adjustment.
•
For system stability, use a more efficient memory cooling system to support a full
memory load (2 DIMMs) or overclocking condition.

Onboard switches
Onboard switches allow you to fine-tune performance when working on a bare or opencase system. This is ideal for overclockers and gamers who continually change settings to
enhance system performance.
1.
MemOK! switch
Chapter 2
P8Z77-I DELUXE
Installing DIMMs that are incompatible with the motherboard may cause system boot
failure, and the DRAM_LED near the MemOK! switch lights continuously. Press to
begin automatic memory compatibility tuning for successful boot.
P8Z77-I DELUXE MemOK! switch
2-16
•
Refer to section 2.2.6 Onboard LEDs for the exact location of the DRAM_LED.
•
The DRAM_LED also lights when the DIMM is not properly installed. Turn off the
system and reinstall the DIMM before using the MemOK! function.
•
The MemOK! switch does not function under Windows™ OS environment.
•
During the tuning process, the system loads and tests failsafe memory settings. It
takes about 30 seconds for the system to test one set of failsafe settings. If the test
fails, the system reboots and test the next set of failsafe settings. The blinking speed
of the DRAM_LED increases, indicating different test processes.
•
Due to memory tuning requirement, the system automatically reboots when each
timing set is tested. If the installed DIMMs still fail to boot after the whole tuning
process, the DRAM_LED lights continuously. Replace the DIMMs with ones
recommended in the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists) in this user manual or on
the ASUS website at www.asus.com.
•
If you turn off the computer and replace DIMMs during the tuning process, the system
continues memory tuning after turning on the computer. To stop memory tuning, turn
off the computer and unplug the power cord for about 5–10 seconds.
•
If your system fail to boot due to BIOS overclocking, press the MemOK! switch to boot
and load BIOS default settings. A messgae will appear during POST reminding you
that the BIOS has been restored to its default settings.
•
We recommend that you download and update to the latest BIOS version from the
ASUS website at www.asus.com after using the MemOK! function.

TPU switch
Turning this switch to Enable will automatically optimize the system for fast, yet stable
clock speeds.
TPU Boost
Chapter 2
P8Z77-I DELUXE
For ensuring the system performance, turn the switch setting to Enable when the system is
powered off.
P8Z77-I DELUXE TPU Boost switch
•
The TPU LED near the TPU switch lights when the switch setting is turned to Enable.
Refer to section 2.2.6 Onboard LEDs for the exact location of the TPU LED.
•
If you change the switch setting to Enable under the OS environment, the TPU
function will be activated after the next system bootup.
•
You may use the TurboV and Auto Tuning feature in the TurboV EVO application,
adjust the BIOS setup program, or enable the TPU switch at the same time. However,
the system will use the last setting you have made.

To erase the RTC RAM
1.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for
about 5–10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
3.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4.
Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to
re-enter data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default position.

BIOS setup
The new ASUS UEFI BIOS is a Unified Extensible Interface that complies with UEFI
architecture, offering a user-friendly interface that goes beyond the traditional keyboardonly BIOS controls to enable a more flexible and convenient mouse input. Users can easily
navigate the new UEFI BIOS with the same smoothness as their operating system. The
term “BIOS” in this user manual refers to “UEFI BIOS” unless otherwise specified.
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) stores system hardware settings such as storage
device configuration, overclocking settings, advanced power management, and boot device
configuration that are needed for system startup in the motherboard CMOS. In normal
circumstances, the default BIOS settings apply to most conditions to ensure optimum
performance. We recommend that you not change the default BIOS settings except in
the following circumstances:
•
An error message appears on the screen during the system bootup and requests you to
run the BIOS Setup.
•
You have installed a new system component that requires further BIOS settings or
update.
Inappropriate settings of the BIOS may result to instability or failure to boot. We strongly
recommend that you change the BIOS settings only with the help of a trained service
personnel.
3.2
BIOS setup program
A BIOS setup program is provided for BIOS item modification. When you start up the
computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program. Press <Del>
during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility. Otherwise, POST continues
with its test routines.
•
The BIOS setup screens shown in this section are for reference purposes only, and
may not exactly match what you see on your screen.
•
Ensure that a USB mouse is connected to your motherboard if you want to use the
mouse to control the BIOS setup program.
•
If the system becomes unstable after changing any BIOS setting, load the default
settings to ensure system compatibility and stability. Select the Load Optimized
Defaults item under the Exit menu. See section 3.9 Exit Menu for details.
•
If the system fails to boot after changing any BIOS setting, try to clear the CMOS and
reset the motherboard to the default value. See section 2.2.5 Onboard switches for
information on how to erase the RTC RAM.
•
The BIOS setup program does not support the bluetooth devices.
Chapter 3
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, press <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Delete>, or press the reset
button on the system chassis to restart the system. You can also turn the system off and then
turn it back on to restart the system. Do this last option only if the first two failed.
The BIOS setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being a
menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various submenus and select from the
available options using a keyboard or a USB mouse.
The BIOS setup program can be used under two modes: EZ Mode and Advanced Mode.
You can change modes from the Exit menu or from the Exit/Advanced Mode button in the
EZ Mode/Advanced Mode screen.

Due to Windows® XP / Vista limitation, a RAID array with the total capacity over 2TB
cannot be set as a boot disk. A RAID array over 2TB can only be set as a data disk
only.
•
If you want to install a Windows® operating system to a hard disk drive included in a
RAID set, you have to create a RAID driver disk and load the RAID driver during OS
installation. Refer to section 4.6 Creating a RAID driver disk for details.
RAID definitions
RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and write data in parallel,
interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same work as a single drive but at a sustained data
transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone, thus improving data access and storage. Use of two new
identical hard disk drives is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one drive to a second
drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management software directs all applications to the surviving
drive as it contains a complete copy of the data in the other drive. This RAID configuration provides data
protection and increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use two new drives or use an existing drive
and a new drive for this setup. The new drive must be of the same size or larger than the existing drive.
RAID 5 stripes both data and parity information across three or more hard disk drives. Among the
advantages of RAID 5 configuration include better HDD performance, fault tolerance, and higher
storage capacity. The RAID 5 configuration is best suited for transaction processing, relational database
applications, enterprise resource planning, and other business systems. Use a minimum of three identical
hard disk drives for this setup.
RAID 10 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity (redundancy data) having to be
calculated and written. With the RAID 10 configuration you get all the benefits of both RAID 0 and RAID 1
configurations. Use four new hard disk drives or use an existing drive and three new drives for this setup.
