[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 333

post #3321 of 7108
I looked at the DIMM's and and it looks like the pins inside it were bent in 3 of them so I'm not surprised. I'll be calling Newegg tomorrow, and I'm not sure what I'll do with the RAM just yet I might just buy a different set.

**If I were to get different RAM what would be recommended? Corsair or GSkill is preferred.

I'm not sure I'm going check on the other mobo, but I'm thinking about getting some other sticks possibly. The pins on one of the sticks looks burnt although I'm no expert so I'm not sure I'd get an RMA..

Thanks, but were u able to use your xfi console? Im so pissed at my board right now i actually do not know what the problem is, this is my second board from asus and i dont wanna say this but both failed me with all these bugs... Can someone walk me through this? I dont have problems with my sound it is just that x fi does not go along with my realtek driver that came with asus, and i would want to use the creative console, i actually uninstalled other drivers like nvidia hd driver but still no luck, could be a faulty board? My board does not have a decal of x-fi supreme
Actually I thought somebody already did answer your post...
Cannot remember which thread I saw it in, but their answer was the same method that I had to use to get my console working as the ones that installed with windows did nothing

Select os and grab the drivers under audio:

http://support.asus.com.tw/download/...%20IV%20GENE-Z

or

http://support.asus.com/download.asp...cJ3Ac58hWxiR0F


The first page looks better IMHO

Are you starting from a clean install of Windows? If so, what have and have you not done so far? Did you download the newest driver from realteks website from the drivers page on this thread? The Asus ones don't unzip for me, they are corrupt no matter what i've tried. Did you install chipset drivers first?

send that picture with rma ans have them give you some new ram they burnt because of faulty DIMMs, they should be responsible.

need some help deciding on a graphics card... i have no experience with ati or nvidia so the decision will be based upon 2 things... how well its supposed to function for its intended purpose... and how cool it looks...

im leaning towards an evga 570 hd 2560... but to be completely honest i know nothing about ati and what they have to offer... this is based upon the gene-z specifically so keep that in mind with suggestions/ i hope its ok for me to post this in here.

2 qq...

1.) Can I quad SLI the 460 2win's on this board? (assuming power supply requirements are met of course) I mean heck... 4 gigs and 1342 cores in a micro atx build?

2.) Will the extra ram on the 570 hd really help in the long run? I do like the idea of the card in tandem... but there's something about a quad sli setup in a microatx build that makes my junk tingle... the concept is really deserving of this board... and the idea just wont let go...

EDIT: forgot to say... im specifically looking for a single card... i plan to get a second for a tandem setup after the new year

No you can't quad sli on this board (or any matx board)

I think you're getting a little ahead of yourself... what are your goals and what is your budget?
