[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 256

post #2551 of 7108
Thanks for reply , that scenario also happened with my poweecolor as well as the xfx 6870 on a standard atx asus p67 so hence my caution

This board fits my future color theme since asrock is almost non existent here, and can't think of other red boards. Also with a price at 150€ its nice indeed

Are you serious? I would be all over Amazon and the seller on this. Amazon for allowing such a piss poor seller on their website and the seller for being a douche. Keep us up to date on what happens.

Definitely keep us in the loop. Was it a "Just Launched" seller? I recently had a run in with one of those...

hey so i ran into a couple of issues of size... so i had to swap around some parts for diff new ones, so once that's all settled, ill post finalized pics. but i recently ran into a prob, upon reboot or a turn on/off, the mobo will give the debug code 98 "console input devices connect" , so im assumin that means that my keboard/mouse arent being recognized? so what happens is, itll just sit at the ROG logo boot screen for a min or 2, then itll like reflash on the screen and fix itself... then itll go to windows. any idea on whats wrong/how to fix? would resetting cmos help?

no thoughts this anyone? cuz it was workin fine over the weekend, then it just started happenin when i was swapping out my vid cards

Congratulations! I am sure you will like it. Look forward to the pictures of how it fits in your case, etc. I looked on Newegg early this morning, but no new stock. I still don't like the blue PCB, but how can you not like the value and performance with the reviews that are out there? If I find it on Newegg, I will buy it too - hopefully before the 15th.

Overcame the problems I was having earlier, I guess I should have just rtfm. Now @ 4.4 GHz using offset overclocking. Prime95 ST right now my hottest core is @ 60 C under load. I am going to try to tune the voltage next currently @ 1.384v

Edit: I really love this build, I am running a five server windows domain in VMware for some testing and the VM's are just blazing fast on this box. WOW!

I often like to read on what I buy, before and after, so there is a good list of reviews.

Do people NOT read reviews? By people, of course, I mean enthusiasts. Non-enthusiasts aren't people.

IMO reading the reviews is half the fun! You read them, drool over what you see, build up hype for yourself, rejoice in the moment of hitting the order button, then inevitably get screwed over by the courier who was too lazy to ring the doorbell and left a tag on the door instead. It's all part of the exciting pre-build process!
