Yeah.
Well, I'm only putting my 560Ti in the lower slot because I'm gonna install AXP on it. And I didn't think it through when I ordered the lian li case..
If I put the gpu with the axp on the top slot the hdd cage is gonna interfere.
So, lower slot it is then.
Thanks for your input guys

I heard that the GTX 580 has problems with this motherboard. Is it true?

Not sure about such a broad statement. I dunno if anyone here is using a 580 of the top of my head. I am using a 570 with no problems. Actually I think ablearcher is using a 580. And another guy is using a 590 even.

Nah it was just a few people and the complaints were from March. I think it will be fine. I was just wondering because I jut ordered the 580 and Maximus IV.

The problem can be corrected by installing their MemTweakIt application and going into their Maximus IV GENE-Z DRAM QVL (found here) and looking up your memory and setting the timings to their proper factory defaults. If you need to fix the frequency it can be done in the UEFI bios.

In my case they were 9-9-9-24 yet it came out 9-9-9-29 for some odd reason. I spent almost 2 days tearing out my hair trying to figure out the cause of the issue without anything to go off of. For a while I thought it was my Nvidia drivers not playing nice with some of the games I was running. I didn't even think of this as the culprit until I did reading around as I hadn't OCed anything.
thank you !! Nice find, as i can tell you, freezes also happen to other motherboards, i had such of these freezes on asrock extreme 4 p67.

I think it's nice... I'm no more using extra sound card for a long time already. I don't listen to Mozart and don't have a HD sound setup but I have a nice TEAC ref system and sometime I use headphones and I'm pleased with onboard sound.

NOTE REGARDING : Max4Gene-Z68 Missing X-Fi2 SupremeFX decal/sticker
As many of you are aware, ASUS had an issue and many of us that bought the earlier batch of boards didn't receive this little sticker/decal on our boards. Not having one will NOT effect the way your system performs in the least, however I have been informed through Gary Key the TeamROG Moderator @ http://www.asusrog.com/forums, that ASUS will take care of those individuals who did not receive it, and has labels arriving from the manufacturing facility next week. So if you WANT one, I suggest going to this link and adding your name to the list of people requesting one ... http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showth...l-sticker-chip ... good luck.

Thanks LA. Are you sure that's the right link? I clicked on it, but don't see a list of names of ppl. requesting the sticker.

Yep ... just I'm the first on the list and I see now you're second

Please when posting to the thread on the ROG Forum, do so in the same manner, just state you bought a board with missing sticker/decal and would like to know if you too can receive one. Gary Key will most likely send you a PM and get shipping & board serial # from you to start the process.
