I just loaded the motherboard drivers for my Intel motherboard and there is a shortcut on the desktop called "Download Intel Desktop Utilities". It takes you to www.intel.com/design/motherbd/software/idu/index.htm
I click on "Download Intel Desktop Utilities" then I select "DESKTOP BOARDS" then I select "INTEL 6 SERIES DESKTOP BOARDS" then my motherboard is NOT in the list of motherboards to the right.
I want to download the "Desktop Board" utility that shows you the status of my motherboard DZ68DB.
QUESTION: Will the utility for "Intel 6 Series Chipset" work for my motherboard even though my specific motherboard is not listed?
QUESTION: When will Intel add support for my DZ68DB motherboard? Thanks all. Rick
Interesting, I never noticed that the DZ68DB isn't listed. I just downloaded and installed version 3.1.4.031a and it does work just as expected (Win7 x64).
The only odd thing I've noticed is that with Smart Response Cache enabled, I don't get SMART info from the accelerated drive. That's not only in Desktop Utilities but in the storage interface as well.
I appreciate the help very much. Did you actually see the Desktop Board utility for DZ68DB motherboard? I still don't see it.
As you suggested, I went to www.intel.com/design/motherbd/software/idu/index.htm
1. Desktop Boards
2. Intel 6 Series Chipsets
3. Intel Dekstop DZ68DB (which is my board)
then Windows 7 64 Bit
then for Dowload Type I selected "Applications".
There was no Desktop Board utility. There were only "3 results matching"
1) Lucid Virtu
2) Intel Integrator Assistant
3) Intel® Integrator Toolkit
Here's a Copy/Paste of the options I selected.
3 results matching:
Desktop Boards + Intel® 6 Series Chipset Boards + Intel® Desktop Board DZ68DB + Windows 7, 64-bit* + Software Applications sorted by relevance
Thanks a bunch. Rick
Yes - DZ68DB. I just downloaded the one for the 6-series chipset and installed it about a month ago, and it's working as expected. Until your post, I never noticed that it didn't specify that motherboard on the download page.
I might have mentioned - the only thing I notice with Desktop Utilities and Rapid Storage is that with Smart Response Cache enabled, I don't get SMART information for C:\ or the cache drive. I do get SMART for another non-cached drive in the system.
