Curiuos, did you update your steps to have the voltage decrease on idle for bios 0902 users? I'd really like to get that working, but I need step by step procedure as there are so many options in these UEFI Bios, its hard to keep track off

RMA came in today, and the board will post with two sticks of RAM so

Bad news is my 2x4gb set is toast so I'm curious as to what I should get to replace them that is obviously compatible with this mobo. Would these work?

Any one help me out here. I just got mine in the mail today and I installed the drivers and I plugged my ethernet in and it worked. Then I went to change my ram speed from 1600 to 2133, had a little trouble, but worked through that. Now when I plug my ethernet into the port no activity lights come on!?

-edit- I went through the bios and found it, must have disabled somehow.

You'll be added

and YES that RAM is What I have, 16 GB of, and it works great, ZERO issues for me so far, PLUS it looks so damn pretty on the GENE-Z

Thanks I just don't want to go through incompatibilities I dealt with on other builds

I got my 50 LinX passes by bumping my VCore to 1.368v.

So I'm sitting pretty now at 4.5GHz and 2133MHz 9-11-10-28-1T RAM. I'm gonna try to tweak the VRAM down a bit, to see if I can get it below 1.65. I am happy with a 4.5GHz OC for my system, as judging by how my chip is scaling, I'd have to pump a lot more volts into this sucker to get it to hit 4.7 or 4.8, which isn't worth it for 2-300 MHz.

My next steps will be to see if I can tweak my other voltages down while maintaining these clocks. Once I find my minimums, I'll post what I did.

Thanks to all for the great thread and again, I apologize for my somewhat petulant entrance. I'll chalk it up to frustration, beer and a bit of crustiness

Here's my validation http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2041743

Can I customise speeds of PWM fans in the bios or are PWM fan speeds set in stone?

Thanks
