I suppose it's better to install the Realtek hardware driver at first and then followed by the X-Fi software emulation drivers.

Yes, as already stated, the used Realtek Soundchip is already known to Win7 internal drivers.


The firmware is integrated within the GENE Z UEFI BIOS so you can't update it without leaking/reprogramming the BIOS for yourself. As already stated, ASMedia is a 100% ASUS company, so better just wait here for ASUS releasing new drivers / updated firmware with next UEFI BIOS Version. AIDA shows me that mine has the Asmedia 1042 USB3 controller onboard.
Thanks Woschdsubbn. Since Win7 has native drivers for the Realtek ALC889A, do I even need to install the latest Realtek drivers for the ALC889A before installing the X-Fi drivers / software?

Also, regarding the ASMedia USB3.0 chipset on the board; We can't update its firmware on our own? The firmware updates use a DOS based utility to update the USB3.0 chipset's firmware.

The Gene-Z looks like a sweet board for those looking to build a small beastly gaming rig. The board defiantly catches my eyes.

Seriously though- Does anyone have any ideas as to why this mobo will not see my GTX 570? I know the card is okay as I just took it out of another machine, AND the fan is going on it as we speak. Not only would it not see my card when I tried installing the drivers, when I tried to install lucid, I got the same error.

Also I realize that another member had this issue a few days ago and instantly returned the board. I won't be giving up so easily.

IF you're going to continue down the path of trying to build your own system and want some basic fundamentals on doing so I suggest finding a copy of this Mag, came out Spring 2011, so you should still be able to find one somewhere ... anyways it has helped me get the basics of a build down ... though I'm still working on the fine details of software across multiple SSD/HDD's

Yep! Spot on Ovlazek. It's a Pioneer 12X Blu-Ray Drive, model BDR-206BK. I didn't pay that listed price of $189 was a little cheaper at $122.

I remember reading a "Build your own PC" thing in PC Gamer a few years ago. It's pretty spot on, and I'd recommend it. Also, the parts you buy come with manuals for installation. Sure, you'll need to read each one, but by the time you're done, you'll have read how to completely build a PC, on top of that it has pictures.

Ovlazek,
I'm sure you've already checked this, but just in case - have you checked your PSU connections to the GTX570 and if you are using a modular PSU, the connections to the PSU itself? Just making sure the card has enough power.

The other thing to check (and forgive me, I've not checked it in the UEFI yet) is to make sure the default video out put is set to PCIe (also sometimes referred to as PCIX) and not on board. If the UEFI is set to on board first, it will out put to that one and disregard the fact that you have a PCIe video card.

Hm, i'm always striving to get the latest drivers. Making an image before trying it out could be a good idea.

Good luck with it. I have now a new USB 3.0 8GB stick and it's working fine, yet. So i can see no need for experimenting around with some firmware from a third(!!!) party website.

Bad luck, Ovlazek. I've had a similar problem some years ago. The solution: I've to screw off the metal slotbracket of my Soundcard. Those bars are most of the times very bad built and far away from being fitting exactly. I hope you understand what my idea is here to help you maybe further? Maybe your vga slotbracket hinders the card to fit 100% into the PCIex-Slot of the mobo. Normally it's easy to screw the slotbracket and nuts off and so just give it a try then? Sometimes it has helped also further to cut off those noses on the right side of this sample picture, they collided with the case and so the card was also not able to get 100% contacts inside the mobo slot or the angle on the left side of the sample picture was too short:
