[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 172

post #1711 of 7108
Made some configurations :
- updated from newer BETA Bios 0650 to 0403, no problem yet.
- upgraded the Intel LAN Driver PROWinx64 from V16.3 to V16.4, no problem yet.
- tested the Intel RST (IASTOR) against MSAHCI, no problem yet. It seems that the IASTOR has some advantages although there's is no significant difference noticeable in normal days work.
- While i'm making some cleanups and reverse copies of my backups i remarked that the new Seagate Barracuda XT 7200.12 3TG harddisk is VERY fast and additionally silent!

Why get a A05FN since it is not that special. All the good features of A05NB were removed.
But, of those cases, I would get the A04, it's the prettiest
Could you please elaborate on the A05FNB good features that were removed? I have been eyeing on the A05FNB for a while now.

On the other hand, I have replace my M3G in a A04 and is quite impressed with the casing, probably the only bad thing about it is that the Noctua U12 can't fit and I had to use the U9 on it.



Here is another system I built for a friend with M4G in a A04

Different experience here, I kept getting "Overclock fail!" on 0403, I'm back to the newer BETA 0650 with no problems

So if I went for the antec 620 would I be able to replace the stock fans for quieter running? If so what size and rpm would I need? Size wise I'm guessing I want 120mm? would I be best choosing this option and sticking with stock case fans to start with (so I could use the money I saved on case fans on the cooler and fans, and possibly the ax cpu?

I think the airflow on the rad does only matter, if you OC it hard. Under normal cicumstances it will do any 120mm fan on the rad, better as intake, since it gets cooler air this way.
I picked up some CM sickleflows now, one of them is going on my 620, once my rig is ready to be built.

How noisy a fan is, is always relative. You can always turn it up or down.
Airflow always comes with noise, there are no wonders. It just depends on, how much airflow you really need for that setup.
The best fan is, that let you do both. Low cfm low noise, or high cfm with high noise. And then you can decide, what you need.
