so may i wait instead of buying this ?

and the note says

- As this waterblock was designed for original ASUS Maximus IV Extreme motherboard it will not perfectly fit ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z motherboard. Bending of one capacitor is required in order to install the waterblock.

SortOfGrim, you have already gotten recommendations for the most commonly used memory from others. LA_Kings_Fan maintains a guide located here: http://www.overclock.net/14646122-post2042.html

He maintains a driver guide too, just check out the bottom of his signature in a recent post for the links.

Thanx everybody! Damn, Newegg is cheap just a pity they don't ship to the Netherlands
Still thinking about 1600 or 1866Mhz but it will be G.Skill Ripjaws-X..

Unless the price is really close, go for the 1600. It won't make that much of a difference unless you are benching.

I'm buying new 120mm case fans and one for my CPU. Should I go for PWM, 3 pin, 4 pin? I don't know which style / type are ideal for this board.

Thanks!
post #3088 of 7119
The PWM 4-pins, if you can find what you want, would be my first choice since you can control them via the five board fan headers (2 CPU; 3 Case).

However, you can use "Qfan" to control 3-pin fans (via the BIOs or "AI Suite II" software that comes with the board), so it isn't a bad alternative if you can't find the PWN fans you want.

I use Qfan to control all of the fans in my Arc Mini and it is working out fine. I haven't stressed the system hard yet, but at low demand, the case fans are near silent at either 500rpms or 600rpms (my idle setting).

You win either way, since you can run either via the on board headers. Cheers!

Thanks for the link to the great pictures! You did a nice job on "The Borg Cube" and it looks to fit your needs - silent with a small footprint and butt-kicking performance!

p3gaz_001 - the waterblock in the link you posted will NOT fit the GeneZ. That block is for the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme/Z motherboards - different boards to the mATX geneZ

This is the block you want for the geneZ - http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/index.p...t01returnid=17
