That was Woschdsubbn and I think he has that set-up ? just a different GPU card.

Thanks!

The long hang at the BIOS screen is par for the course with these new ASUS boards, unfortunately. It seems to be either a 'feature' of the new EFI BIOS or a bug. I hadn't heard though that this only happens with USB connected. Very interesting...

Your next step is to take some time to organize those cables a bit better!

Build looks great though. It's such an awesome board!

I've been considering the Fractal Design Arc Mini as an option for my M4GZ. I am hoping that I can reach the front of the case with the Corsair H60 fan/radiator set-up, as it would allow for the right airflow direction (even though it would be heated through the radiator). I am hoping to set it up like the case (P180) in this post by McLemore87:

http://www.overclock.net/14223106-post617.html

The FDAM is three inches deeper, so I may have to set up some sort of shroud to make the Hydro-cooler fit - it might not make any sense to do, but fun to consider. Pictures to follow!

I will buy an AX850 at the same time, with the GPU still as a future purchase (looking for the right deal or waiting for the next-gen release).

and the 6950 unlocked its really hot and kind a loud ...
and the Phantom is just HUGE and really hard to move Im just scared not to brake or bend it .....

thats why I decided to build a new pc
in the NZXT Vulcan (btw Its been 1 week since I payed for it and Its still not here ..... bruce.gifbruce.gifbruce.gifbruce.gif )
but yea the 560TI TFII/OC is smaller gpu then the my 6950...
-its should be cooler and more quiet ....
and like all of the ppl that have the TFII say that they can overclock it to 1GH easy ....


Im still going to post pics and maybe make a video or something when I receive my missing parts biggrin.gif

Im running a MSI GTX 560ti Twin Frozr II OC @ 1000 Mhz core with only 1.062V.

Hi all i'm new here. Am I allowed to post here if i'm going to be a soon to be Maximus IV GENE-Z owner? I'm building a new system and I was wondering if anyone could provide some input!

Case: LIAN LI PC-A05FNB Black
Mobo: Maximus IV Gene-Z
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K
Vid Card: 2x MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II/OC GeForce GTX 560 Ti
SSD: Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC
Secondary HD: Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache
RAM: Corsair 16 GB Vengeance Low Profile 1600mhz PC3-12800
PSU: Corsair Professional Series Gold High-Performance 1200-Watt
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE2
Lite-ON B-ray and DVDrw drives
Plus, replacing the stock 120mm case fans with Noctua fans and adding in a Noctua 140mm fan.
I also might throw in a card reader lolol.
Also, i'll be transferring over WD 2Tb green drive and a WD 640Gb drive from my Shuttle that i'm currently using.

All that should fit finely together on that mobo right?!

This is my first PC that i'll be putting together since freshman year of college ... which was like, 4 years ago. So now that I finally kicked off my career, budget wasn't really an issue... FOR ONCE. Any suggestions, tips, thoughts? Some of those choices were based on OCD personal tastes lol.

Thanks!

Welcome UltraSwank ,

Of course you can post here, and when you get your stuff and rig please post some pictures.

Overall your Build List looks VERY SOLID, should be a nice rig.

I might suggest consider looking into the Crucial M4 series (#CT128M4SSD2) SSD's over the C300 series as the M4's tend to be a little cheaper / a little faster / and have same MTBF life span as the C300's.

Also I'm not sure the Corsair Vengeance Low Profile Kits have been added to the Asus QVL memory list yet ? and I thought a couple people here posted a problem or two with them ? Might require some more research, but with the Noctua NH-U12P CPU Cooler you can't really go TALL RAM either, this combo might be a slight issue worth double checking further before you buy everything.

Some guys will tell you your PSU might be overkill, and you might get by with less ?
I won't say it, but others might wink.gif

Otherwise looks fine, a lot of HDD's you have 6 SATA's to work with on this Board and looks like you'll fill them ALL; w/ 1 SSD, 3 HDD's, 1 B-Ray & 1 DVD or is this a 1 unit combo ?

Again welcome smile.gif

Aite cool, glad the first person to reply, approves smile.gif , ill look into the Crucial M4 SSDs, thanks. Is the Asus QVL mem list on the asus website of the maximus iv gene z? or do you have a link?

and in terms of the 1200 watt psu, that was one of the silly choices, it was either that or the 950, i really wanted a 1000 cuz its a nice number.

and yep, ill be filling all them SATA slots, the blu ray and dvd are sep. (too make burning media easier!)
