Thanks trulsrohk, LA_Kings_FAN, lucas.vulcan,

That's exactly what I needed to know. Since I already have the MSI 580 LXE I would either have to go single card (which I'm leaning towards anyways) w/ Gene Z, or just get an ATX board for SLI obviously.

Since this is the best mATX board on the market, I'm very tempted to just go the former route.

Recently, someone posted that they received their new board with the BIOS 0706 already installed, so you might not have to do anything. Good luck with your build. thumb.gif

Completed the updating all drivers and bios and installing the ai suite. But I just encountered my first blue screen which was after a pc wake-up.
Do I need to set something else to prevent this?

Thanks

And here's some pics of my finished rig.

I know it sounds overly simple but you'd be suprised how many people aren't getting their components secured down and locked in place, and/or likewise with the power cables, that Error Post Code #34 is almost always a result of this, so might be something you need to double check. Also I didn't look at the Specs of your SIG RIG but sometimes people mess up the cables w/ modular PSU's also. IF they said your card was fine, and your Gene-Z board was fine ... most likely it all is, and it's some user error blushsmiley.gif  ... go back and check the basics ... also try the other PCI-e Slot, make sure you have Virtu disabled also in the BIOS, might be part of the issue ?

 


Got the card back today and I've just done the following. List is in no particular order by the way.

Reset BIOS
Made sure it's been saved as PCIe and not iGPU as bootable
Used 3 different power cables (with 2 connectors on), in every possible combination
Tried the card in both PCIe slots
Sat and resat the card in both slots at least 4 times
Used different combinations of RAM
Resat the CPU
Pulled out every cable and plugged them back in again several times
Connected to monitor via DVI, DVI to VGA, HDMI to VGA
I've enabled / disabled Virtu to see if that makes a difference but nothing.


The computer even boots up fine (going by the codes), but my monitor still says no input detected. Card seems to power up fine, fans spin and LEDs turn green when cables are plugged in. Soon as I plug in HDMI cable to the motherboard... ta daaaa, all can be seen. This is really starting to annoy me now! mad.gif

Thread Starter 

 @ 1ceTrOn  That headset looks wicked HOT  devil.gif especially for your Rig dude VERY NICE ... who makes them ? what $ did they set you back ? and are they wireless by chance ?

I was looking to maybe replace mine before long and was looking at these from ASUS, but I REALLY want a wireless Headset,

the damn wires ALWAYS get all tangled up on me, and I can't stand that. madsmiley.png

oh btw WELCOME BACK 1ceTrOn   winksmiley02.gif yeah this new OCN ain't as easy on the eyes as the OLD,

but it can be set to look close to the Old style with the right "Preferences" settings.

 @ Azza28 ... OK, that you can view onscreen when pluggin the HDMI cable into the MoBo tells me you still have a setting enabled wrong. Most likely you still have the iGPU setting in the BIOS set ENABLED or whatever and thus your not getting the signal to the PCI-e slot. It's your SETTINGs there's nothing wrong with the Board or GPU card, take your time and read through the manual again. You'll get it. thumb.gif

Hey guys, got a q for owners using a dac.

Is it possible to use EAX through digital out?

Got the board and considering a soundcard but wondering if a dac would suit me better (for possible SLI in the future).

Thanks all.

Also if I use a dac should I not bother installing the Xi-fi package?
