GeminII S524 features a larger Heat sink for improved cooling performance, and increased memory module clearance to support high end memory modules featuring large Heat sinks of their own. It comes equipped with a modular 120mm fan with an ideal noise performance ratio throughout its supported range of rpm. It can be upgraded to a 140mm fan to further boost its cooling performance or opt for a super low noise, low rpm fan.
Note: By comparision, the Noctua NH-C14 bottom edge clearance is 65mm w/o lower fan on, and 38mm with, and 130mm TALL with Top Fan installed.

Actually looks like a VERY NICE option for this motherboard, a little too late for me, but

What ram will you be using?

Wow, all of you need to get get out more. No one is gonna win this epeen battle.

Anyway, I haven't been having any problems with my setup aside from the "Memory Bandwidth" option in the BIOS which I found shouldn't be enabled with my RAM anyway.

If you don't like e-peen comparisons then maybe OCN isn't the place for you.

Haha, I'm all for a good epeen battle. Sometimes makes for good entertainment. I think most of us are more interested in setups, experiences and other info. regarding this board though...

This board has the longest BIOS / UEFI boot time I've ever seen in my life, and I've built a TON of computers. When I turn my PC on, it's literally on for 16 seconds before I get video, then another 14 seconds before it actually even looks at my HDD. The windows boot time from that point is under 30 seconds to desktop, which is great, but my god, the bios/uefi segment.. why so long?!

Is anyone else seeing this issue of extraordinarily long boot times inside the bios itself? Any way to reduce it by turning off ports or features?

Thanks in advance, and thanks for the great info in this thread - I've read most of it here and there. Thanks to this thread I got a great deal on the board at SuperBiiz, even though they botched my address and it took weeks to get here :/

I'd be interested to hear your guys boot times, in the 3 stages.
(1) How long between pressing power and seeing the screen turn on (i.e. get a signal, even if it's just black)?
(2) How long doing random crap in bios/uefi before Windows begins booting?
(3) How long until you're at your desktop?
Hmmm, Interesting ? I counted about 15 seconds from the time I hit the POWER ON Switch until I see the ASUS ROG BIOS splash screen and then about another 25 seconds after that until I'm at my WIN 7 Password Login. That's faster than I was used to on my old system/board so to me it seems quick ?

I would check out the Noctua C12P-SE14 here.

The sniper ram clears no problem according to the noctua compatibility chart.

Hi guys, I just got my Asus Maximus Gene-Z and I wanted to make used of the SSD cache feature. This whole RAID Cache is totally new to me so im wondering, I have 2 HDD, both are 500gb and are connected to the red SATA Ports, I know that in order to use the SSD Cache, I have to setup SATA in RAID Configuration. I dont know RAID that much but I do know if I set it up wrongly, I could lose all my important data. Right now, my secondary HDD contains all my important files, If I do set it up in RAID, what RAID mode should I use to take advantage of the SSD Cache? Will I lose my data in my secondary HDD?

Thanks in advance guys for any help!

For starters ... you say you have 2 x 500gb HDD's, you don't mention a SSD at all ? To take advantage of Intel's SMART-RT you need at least one SSD between the 18.6 GB minimum and 64 GB maximum storage requirements.

Secondly, if you read through this thread a bit, most here that have tried it, myself included, and at the recommendations of other more knowledgeable members of this thread, have decided it's not worth the effort just yet, as this technology isn't ready for prime time just yet, and that you'd make better use of your single SSD using it as a BOOT drive for windows rather than the cache feature. Now if you have TWO SSD's and/or one LARGE SSD where you can use 64 GB for the cache and another 60+ GB for a BOOT drive, then your case may be different, and it may be an option worth further looking into.

That said, when I tried to set-up Intel's SMART-RT my first go around, I noticed my on-screen options were NOT the same as in the ASUS User Guide that came with the board, so they may still be having a software/driver issue with it as well, so MY advice, at least right NOW ... is WAIT, and hold off on trying to use this feature, it's still being figured out, and I don't look good in a 'Guinea Pig' costume
