actually i have the qvl list on my pc right now. i think the low prof vengeance should be the same as the regular vengeance, just dif heatsinks. but do you have a suggestion on any other good low profile ram sets?

You'd think ... but that's not always the case, sometimes different Lat's, etc. And it's not that if they're not on the QVL they for sure WONT work, it's just that Asus and Corsair haven't tested them yet most likely as the LP's are kind of new and just coming out, you can't even get the RED ones yet frown.gif and I'd like 1 LP RED heatsink at least, but that's another issue for another thread.

As far as other LP RAM sets ... I'm not saying you have to forget using the Corair Vengeance LP's ... just maybe do a bit more research, as I mentioned I thought one or two people used them here in this thread and had problems, I suggest going back and read it, I don't recall the issue off the top of my head. Aside from that if you get another type ... several here have worked with the G.Skill Snipers, the Corsair XMS series are a good value. You have other options.

Good Luck.

Hey, I just noticed you're using the Noctua NH-U9 SE2 with 16 gb corsair vengeance. are you using both fans on the cooler? and the vengeance you have, it's the ones with the huge heatsinks? and it all fits? cuz if it does, I might just do that. the case im getting is pretty small so i realize the fairly large cooler may take up too much space.

and thanks again for the tips.

... I had to remove the heatsink on the RAM in Slot#1 to get it all to fit, I could have raised the fan up on the Cooler, but then it would hit the side panel cover of the case, so that's why I said I was wanting at least ONE Vengeance LP RED heatsink to cover that one, but they're not out on the market yet. I've even gone on the Corsair Forums to inquire about it and their Tech/Customer support guys can't help me get this resolved yet,
oh well I wait.

In my build ... The Noctua NH-U9 SE2 is a nice little CPU cooler, I had the CoolerMaster GeminII but it also would have hit the Heatspreader of Slot #1, so I upgraded to the Noctua as I unfortunately can't fit a Corsair Hydro system w/ it's 120mm Rad/Fan's inside the HP case, but the Noctua NH-U9 cools about as well, and I added a couple extra case fans.

In some other builds I've seen ... a few have used the Noctua NH-C14 w/ Top & Bottom fans and it just fits with the G.Skill RIPJAWS X, I don't think the Corsair Vengeance will clear underneath though, so that might be another option to consider.

Anyone running dual GTX590's or HD6990's on this board? I am curious if anyone ran into any issues with the board not having the molex connector for additional PCIe power.

Ah, i love his tuned up build!! For sure due to the fact that LAKF dismantled one metal plate his built is worldwide outstanding. wink.gif

Another possibility is to buy some memory without large metal plates ...
Here you can see my Noctua NH-D14 heatsink monster inside my Fractal Design Define Mini with G.Skill Eco memory lacking futile metal cooling memory constructions.
1600ECO01.jpg

It's about 1 cm free space between memory and cpu heatsink (see attached pics) and so i mustn't setting up the second noctua fan a bit higher, which is basically possible as you can see in the next picture:

Oh boy, it absolutely is! I'm all for getting gold rated PSU's (my next one, on my next build, will be) as it will last you several builds. Seems like a solid investment. If there's a 1000W version of the same PSU, I'd suggest looking into that.

Unless, of course, you're all for epeening. I sounds like you are, as you have the cash to spare and you seem very eager to blow it on something shiny. In which case, woot!

But yeah, build looks good. Will you really fill up that many hard drives? =0 That's a LOT of pr0n!

And just remind the fact that there's a cloud also out there. rolleyes.gif

I'm VERY lucky with my stable and very silent Seasonic X-560: This is enough power for overclocking my single GPU system. And next to displays, the psu is one of the long lasting parts of a pc system at all. wink.gif So it's better to be not a curmudgeon at this part.

Im running dual GTX590 on this board, GTX590 is within the pci-e spec no problem here. The hd6990 with switch flipped is out of pci-e spec so i dont know how that will work but i see no problem when i have my maximus iv extreme with triple GTX580 overclocked i didnt have the molex plug it anyways.

Think its for extreme cases like 1000+ on the core with LN2 you might need those molex plugged in....

I found a REPRODUCABLE problem:
Deinstallation of AMD Catalyst resets my Asus Maximus IV Gene Z BIOS!!
This already happens with first, beta and also the latest 0403 BIOS Version.

It seems that the driver deinstallation routine of AMD catalyst calls some memory devices reserved for BIOS, the Intel-on-die-GPU get's the system crazy or something like that. Also possible is that something strange happens because the Crucial m4 128GB SSD is merely "too fast" for the deinstallation routine.
I'm starting "AMD Express Deinstallation" over the normal "Programs and Functionalities" icon in system environment and finally both displays getting dark and all of my fans are running with full power up. Maybe it's also this resolution switch of windows while deinstallating the AMD gpu drivers that's getting the UEFI BIOS crazy?
Afterwards the only possible thing with two switched off dark screens and all of my fans running wild and loud, the only thing to do is to switch off, go into BIOS, Reset to factory defaults and save BIOS, Restart again and then setup all normal needs inside UEFI BIOS. Now the system boots normal of course with low res settings, then it's possible to install the AMD 11.8 driver (it happens already with first installation of 11.6, then with 11.7 and now), reboot normally and Win7 64Bit Ultimate SP1 and with latest updates starts up fine. I'm using the latest Intel HD-Graphic driver besides the internal gpu is always off for my HD5870 is working much better. I'm also not using and so i've not installed Lucid Virtue at all.

Besides i'm over 40 years old, technical IT consultant with about 30 years of computer experience and around 15 years of experience on the job, forget about vanilla recommendations. frown.gif

Has anyone similar hardware like mine? If that's the case then what are your experiences with AMD catalyst Deinstallation (!) on Win7 64 Bit with SSD and the Gene Z?

Never seen something like that before, that a vanilla software program is resetting the BIOS!
I'm having a feeling like i'm a guinea pig for UEFI features, eh?
