[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 324

post #3231 of 7108
Thread Starter 
OK, several things ...

FIRST OFF ... I've been working my butt off trying to figure out/update and integrate Google.docs as our OWNERS LIST ... BUT, before I make the official switch over I'd like you all to take a peak and let me know via PM if you think i should add or change anything ? I didn't see the need to include PSU's or HDD's/SSD's though maybe I should ? Also maybe a Notes section for each person ? I wanted to add the items people seemed to question the most, like RAM and CPU coolers ... so now they can just LOOK and see, "OH Yeah HE'S got that on HIS" smile.gif
Also IS your INFO is correct or does it need updating ? let me know what yours is if it's still BLANK wink.gif
... a BIG THANK YOU to all who take the time to do this, I think it will help down the road.

Review it here = http://www.overclock.net/15121724-post3189.html

=====================================================================

SECOND off ... eek.gif HOLY **** !!! in putting the list together I see that vex_sb pushed an i5 2500k to 5.35 GHz @ 1.504v on our little GENE eek.gifproof.gif
IMPRESSIVE ! thumb.gif

=====================================================================

THIRD ... I added one more person to the list, but others will need to wait until I make the switch over and replace just the name w/ the Full Google.Docs spreedsheet. But keep getting your pictures, verifications and info listed ... also it REALLY helps if your RIG info is filled out in your Signature, just click HERE to fill yours out ... /or ... HERE update it.

=====================================================================

FOURTH ... NICE RIG 1ceTr0n looking GOOD thumb.gif

=====================================================================

FIFTH & LASTLY ... there seems to be like 2 or 3 maybe 4 issue's that pop up time and time again with people having difficulty setting up their GENE boards for the first time. It appears the SLEEP/Wake From issue, the OverClocking Settings/issues, the various AUDIO SOUND chip/driver/not working-what did I do wrong issues, and {something else, I'm tired now and can't think of it ? will edit in later, or if you know HELP ME} keep coming up every handful of pages, and It would be nice if I could ADD to the Front Page a GUIDE to Remedy EACH if anyone cares to help doing a little Write Up redface.gif YES I'm begging for some HELP, I told you guys I'm still kinds Green and not such a Tech Geek YET nerdsmiley.png-s IF someone wants to help PM me.


OK boys & girls that's enough for one night ... take a look at the Google Page/Link and I'd appreciate some feedback, THANKS AGAIN. smile.gif

- Ash {LAKF}

My personal interim summary after playing, surfing and working for about two months with my new pc on GENE Z platform: YEAH!!

The only thing i've had was a problem with de- and newinstallation of AMD catalyst. I suppose it was a WIN7 issue for a lot of system updates happened in the last 8 weeks and yesterday when i'm updating from Catalyst 11.8 to 11.9 it worked fine without strang blackscreen.

Now my pc is running faster than Mr. Bolt with this lovely 4.2G setting inside the BIOS: it gets me remarkable 1.6GHz under Desktop (=power saving, silent and low fan speed) but 4.2GHz in BC2. I'm wearing headset and thus it doesn't bother me, when the fans speeding up a bit.

I'm running my rig with latest official BIOS 0403 and always all other drivers updated to latest version. Hmm, and without annyoing onboard sound devices... wink.gif

Ok, true that problem with memory and BIOS can cause a blue screen, but it's also possible especially in combination with games that a problem with the graphics driver causes a bsod.
It could help you further to analyze the dumpfile. It's quite easy to do this and you get the info, what was the name of the last DLL before the bsod happens. If it was e.g. the DLL of the graphic driver, you get another clue then changing the memory...

First off - a BIG Thank You to LA_Kings_Fan for what he has done for this thread and all the help he has given us here. The google spreadsheet look great..

Posting some screenshots as ive been stability testing and oc'ing my system lately.

pics: changed card to a gtx580 instead of HD 6950. waiting for waterblock so no update pics yet.

comppix05.jpg

comppix01.jpg

cpu overclocks:

2002790.png

This proc will probably do (boot and validate) 5.5-5.6ghz but scaling with voltage higher than 1.4xx show little gain in ghz's.

LinX5ghzStable145v20passes2-1.jpg

I used LinX for stability testing and to qualify for the "LinX 5ghz Stable Club" at Xtremesystems - lolz
Voltage could have been lower (1.42v+-) but the new linpacks required a little bump in vcore to get stability. Difference with the new linpacks is that you get 120+Gflop peaks for the 2600k proc as oppose to 50+Gflops for the old version. Temps were in the high 70's!!

Prime95 required a little less vcore and temps were 5-8deg lower than LinX.

gpu overclocks:
gpuzgtx580validation.jpg

3dmark11gtx580ocd96052ghzvirtuoff.jpg

3dmarkVantagegtx580ocde96052ghz.jpg

This card could probably hit 1ghz core with a little more voltage - right now afterburner only gives 1.15v max with the stock Inno3d bios. Will try to flash to a bios that gives higher voltages at a later date when i get the waterblock.

Very happy with the system so far, and probably will not change components much after the gpu block.

We had a discussion a few days ago about this after I found out many were using CPU-Z to read voltage and like you I was not able to see it change with CPU-Z and was using RealTemp.

Then I thought that maybe RT simply read a VID table according to speed detected.

I was supposed to get my multimeter to verify (my case is still open after the video card fiasco) so I would have easy access to voltage reading on the board but I haven't had time to do it (or was too lazy to go get the multimeter 2 floors down). redface.gif

Yes but also had problem... Windows installed a working sound driver and I was trying to install from there. I also had problem with many of the package I downloaded like if they were corrupted or something.

I installed the RealTek audio dirver and X-Fi installed. I never understood, neither found out why packages were giving error though.

oh my geez, you're lucky to get your console working up and running somehow. could you tell me what drivers were they?
