I think you have this exactly correct! Thanks again for another updated list, too!

Seriously, the User Manual states ...

I don't know, I am asking ... That plus the price difference is why I think most of us just stuck with 1600 MHz ? or am I clueless here

Also I did up a fairly detailed listing of most of the common RAM choices MOST of us are using on the MaximusIVGeneZ68 ... see MY Post #2042
{I updated it to include the HEIGHT of the RAM also}.

English is fun that way. You take spelling rules that apply to most words and use them in a predictable way, but it turns out it isn't a word at all. That's why I like German -- it's much more consistent in how words are put together. English is just wacky...

I wasn't criticizing -- I really did like the word! Its meaning was clear, but shorter than if it had been written "correctly".

Maybe sure you install the Realtek drivers and THEN install the Creative X-Fi drivers.

I think the answer is more simple. Lots of Win7 Ultimate 64-bit users here that don't have this issue. You will find that there has been quite a lot of discussion of the issue on this thread, so you might learn the answer by reviewing those posts (...using the search function, maybe?). I think most solved the problem by installing some drivers, etc. in specific order.

Did some work on my new build today
Still missing a lot of parts, but...
Marked everything on the case, that i need to cut... its time for modding it.

Unfortunatelly, i have only 90mm from case front to the MB. Two 25mm fans, a 30mm rad only allows for a <10mm shroud, wich i have to mill.
I plan the following airflow on the antec:
case->sickleflow->shroud->rad->swif2
I hope i will be able to run them on low rpm's.

Any ideas, how to screw them together? I need to reduce vibrations somehow, but no chance, that 4 silicon fan pins would hold the whole installation... will have to use very long M3 screws, and... dont know.

Thanks for the memory speed replies, my wallet thanks you. Also the overclocking talk about only changing the multiplier was also helpful.

On that note, wanting to only moderately overclock my system what multiplier should i be aiming for on my gene-x and 2600k. Also will i be expected to play about with voltages or is that only for the advanced overclocker?

Thanks.

Not sure I understand what you're trying to do ?

You have 90mm clearance from Case Front to the edge of the Motherboard, in which you want to install your Antec KÃœHLER H2O Radiator and push/pull fans, correct ?

And the Fan/Rad/Fan combo = 25mm/30mm
{Antec claims it's 27mm btw}/25mm = 80mm ... So why do you need ANY kind of shroud inbetween ? I don't get that part ?

As for reducing vibrations, they make these Silicone Anti-Vibration Kits you could try.

Read the replies {especially Rhialto's } to SightUp starting w/ Post #2142 going on through 'til about Post #2168. It's pretty simple and straight forward to get a moderate overclock on the i7 2600k.

Hey Club,

I'm about to be an Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z owner

I just have two questions:

1- How is the quality of the on-board sound card? Is it good enough for gaming?

2- I was thinking of disabling IGPU. Is it worth having it enabled? I've read that fps drops a little during gaming while IGPU is enabled. (Btw, my GPU is GTX 580)

Sound is fine, unless you're an audiophile, then you'll hate it.

I disabled my iGPU. Virtu doesn't seem worth the hassle.
