perfect amount of ram for IBT is something around 3gigs, iirc
or was it 3/4 of total ram amount I can't remember right now.

I guess Rhialto saw it first, but really didn't make too big a mention of it, but there's a New review up over @ techpowerup ...

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/A...mus_IV_Gene-Z/

RATING = 9.3 out of 10

Quote:
We cannot say enough how impressed we are with the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z. When it comes to the BIOS, although we feel that the pages are far too numerous, we wouldn't want to see a single option removed, and the ones we'd like to see added hardly have any effect on usability or performance. With one of the best audio results we've seen so far, and really some of the very best overclocking we've seen yet, this minute board not only offers everything much larger boards do for features, it offers a few things more too, and the fact that it's so small doesn't affect those features one bit. There is one problem, however. With support for dual video cards, both in SLI and CrossFire format, the slot spacing is far too close together for dual high-end cards like nVidia's GTX 580 and GTX 590, or AMD's 6970 and 6990. All of those solutions, from both sides of the fence, tend to require a high-airflow system, and that's just not possible in such a small form-factor. However, for single cards, we do believe many users will have a hard time to find anything lacking, and if high-end multiple-card video solutions are required, aftermarket watercooling is always possible. With the overclocking abilities offered it's almost a shame to not watercool a rig built with this board , as it's definitely able to go even further than we pushed it, provided you have a CPU that is capable. If you are serious about overclocking and plan on using a single VGA, you'd be foolish to not consider this product. We deducted points for the slot configuration, and for the "cheating" stock overclock, although these are very minor issues that one should expect from a product like this. Don't forget to hit us up in the forums when you buy yours, and we'll help you get started.

CMX8GX3M4A1600C9 (m4) to mine (m2).
So if the mem is wrong, the bios wont load ? right ? All I get is a black screen, it's like the msi gfx wont work either(but it did on my p5b+c2d6300)
Have you tried holding down the MEM OK button to see if that will clear the memory issue? The bios will set the memory at a setting it is compatible with when you do this. While the board is off, just press and hold the button until the red led comes on and boot, it will go through some tests and set the memory to the compatible settings so you can boot.

I know someone had this problem and asked the same question and it was a setting to change but I forgot which one. I believe it's in the last 20-30 pages. Maybe someone know which setting and will reply.

No it was a setting preventing the CPU voltage from droping when idle. I'm just too lazy to go back find it.

I posted the link of the facebook page maybe a week ago with all the reviews of this board so I thought anyone looking for reviews would have bookmarked it.

You are right, I saw it 1st and just 2-3 pages behind I pointed someone to the audio page as it was the 1st time I saw a review discussing the audio part. Many here were worried about this aspect so now thee is finally a review we can share to them.

Good advise, LAKF (No Holiday Inn stays for me either). Lots of Vengeance (Red and/or Black), Sniper and RipJaws modules represented in the builds of the M4GZ club members!

Also, not sure where you bought your RAM, but NewEgg sells that 8GB kit for $53 ... so you could try THESE and save a couple bucks maybe, same Kit & Lat. timings but at 1.5v for $50.

I'm using these ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233180 ... same price but RED w/ tall heat spreader ... Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhhhhh PRETTY

Other good options =
G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) @ $50
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) @ $52
G.SKILL Sniper Super Low 1.25 Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) @ $60

I would exchange the RAM, as it sounds like this is your issue to me,
but I'm not an expert nor do I stay at Holiday Inn.

While some have been using IBT to stress/stability test their systems, i have been working on 5ghz stable in LinX.

Question is, what is the difference between the 2 (ibt & LinX) when it comes to stress testing.

I'm pretty sure AVX is enabled on my system at the moment as i am getting 120+ GFlops peak while stressing. Temps are in the mid 80's at 1.45vvcore.

Will post results soon.

Sure did. the red led flashes a bitt , and then stay's solid , and same 53 error in the led display.

LA KING FAN. I got them at a Norwegian retailer ,it was a good price (weekend sale at komplett.no) and they seemd good. So nothing to do with cooling ore looks ore anything .4 years since last time I built a pc, so I guess I should have read up a bitt on the memory thing.

I got the msi gfx card last weekend , and just thought , man I got to get some new hardware to go with that. The i5 2500k was not a hard choice, and the HK was recomended by friend , and the mem was just a pick after that. So should have read up a few forums first I guess.
