Congrats 1ceTr0n and welcome to the dark side ... errrr oops, I mean our little owners group here be sure to post some pics of your new build rig

==========

Thanks Rhialto, I guess I'll have to look into downloading Furmark from somewhere or something.

==========

maxmekker, I take it then this is the SAME board, you didn't get a 2nd one ... sucks, but it might be time to consider RMA'ing it if you can't resolve this, again I'd PM the ASUS guys I mentioned last time and ask for some assistance, they really want you to enjoy this Gene board so I think they'll do whatever it takes to keep you a happy camper.

yes, it's the same board ,
But I have another one , it came in the mail today, since I ordered another one from the same place.The tech guy said since I had tried several combos they would probably have a hard time getting it up and running to ,so if I got another one , they would just pay me back for the first one.So ,got the last maximus they had + kingston ram( to se if that would help over the corsair) So I called in today when it came in the mail and said I would return the new one since I got the 'first' one up and running, but quess I have to make one more phone call :-)
I've posted in my tread over at asus rog

I must add that my asus p5b HK have been rock solid for over 4 years now. Never missed a boot :-)
Not sure what board to get if I drop the maximus..

Can you guys give me links to get the newest intel drivers for this board? Intels website has been horribly difficult to navigate for years trying to find the most current drivers and ASUS isn't very good at updating mobo's, especially once there no longer "current" ASUS just basically abandons all driver support, which is real annoying

I wanna get all my drivers and such downloaded to my USB drive so I can prep up for my build this weekend.

Any other suggestions for me to prepare for my first ROG mobo? Is the ROG website worth signing up for giggles?

No need use Furmark, I used it because I had it for testing a video card but just run something in the background...

It's only now I realize that CPU-Z does not instantly update the Core voltage... I wonder if, when people were saying that voltage does not lower when idle, if they were looking at CPU-Z?

I use RealTemp 3.67 for that.

I always install the NIC driver from either the CD or a USB drive 1st, then when I'm connected to internet I download all latest drivers from the website.

With my previous mobo (Asus P7P55D) I had the option to 'eject' or use the hardware remove icon when I used the hot-swap bay, however now I don't get that option.
I do get both options when I use an USB-stick.
I'm afraid if I take out the hard drive there could be some loss of data.

cheers

Enroute is the following for my 6th computer build for a fun filled new computer build weekend! My new Dell U2412M will be arriving tomorroo as well! I picked up a new X-FI titanium for $60 that im gonna try out against onboard sound as well.

The only sad part is that newegg was all out of the superclocked evga GTX 570's with reference coolers, so i'll have to recycle my GTX 260 for a bit longer.

Im excited to be trying out my first ROG Asus product and look forward to playing with this mobo. I don't care much for red but that Genie sure is sexy looking! Its gonna be a fuuuun weekend!

Newegg has the 2500K for $194 right now under promo with free shipping, call or chat with them and they should give you back the difference.

Not 100% sure this is the same ...
but maybe check your BIOS, under ADVANCED / SATA configuration / " HOT PLUG " enable/disable support ...

IF that's not it maybe under ADVANCED / USB configuration / " Legacy USB / USB3.0 Support" enable/disable/Auto ... or " EHCI Hand-Off" enable/disable

I'm sure someone will correct me IF I'm way off base here, I warned you though I'm not a geek, I'm just trying to play one on this thread
