Quick question. The Gene Z has a HDMI port. Now can I use the HDMI out on it for Audio to a receiver and use my GPUs for video? Optical isn't an option, it degrades the audio quality, and I need the 8 channel capability of HDMI for my Home Theater system.

Need to know for when I upgrade to Tri-SLI 680s as HDMI may not be an option on them.


The way I have things set up is HDMI from my GPU to my receiver, and HDMI from my receiver to my Monitor. It works well. I also know I can HDMI out via GPU to my receiver for audio and use DVI or Displayport from my GPU to my monitor for video as well.

I would be surprised if you could hear the difference between hdmi and toslink, particularly if it isn't an hd audio source.

I don't think intel hdmi does the HD audio standards, and sure as heck doesn't show up as a audio playback device on mine.

TOS link compresses anything over 2 channels and cannot play HD audio codecs. It reverts them to 5.1 Dolby Digital and regular DTS.

Hello fellow owners!

Started my build today and decided to join OCN and post in this thread where I've already found so much helpful information! This is my first new PC since 2001 (gasp!), and my first ever custom PC build (double gasp!). I think I've done my homework well, but I'm sure I will have many questions. I apologize in advance for the noob-ish questions I no doubt will ask. Please be patient with me!

The build is intended for running SolidWorks CAD plus general home use. Sorry, I'm not a gamer....... I'm after speed, robustness, and exceptional value. Here's the kit I've assembled:

450

It consists of:
  • Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z MB
  • Intel Core i7 2600k CPU
  • Corsair H80 Cooler
  • (4x) Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3 RAM (16GB total)
  • Nvidia Quadro 2000 GPU (CAD specific)
  • OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD (for OS and applications only)
  • (2x) WD Caviar Black 1TB SATA III HDD(for data storage - hoping to run in RAID 1)
  • Samsung Blu-Ray Combo ODD
  • Seasonic X 560w 80 Plus PS
  • Silverstone TJ08-E Case
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Logitech MK710 Wireless Keyboard/Mouse
  • Samsung P2770HD Monitor/HDTV (not shown in pic)

Being my first build, I intend to take my time going through it. If it takes a couple weeks, I'm okay with that. And of course I welcome any comments, questions, or pointers.

Best regards,

Family Man

Me. I see no reason to turn it off. Why would I want to keep it running all the time at 4.6GHz when reading emails?

Okay, first question:

My plan is to run the 60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD alone for OS and applications (6Gb/s port). Then have the (2) Caviar Black 1TB HDDs in RAID 1 for safe data storage (3Gb/s ports). Can I do this?

I ask because reading up on SATA setup and AHCI in the MB manual I came across this in the RAID Configurations section:

"Due to chipset limitation, when set any of SATA ports to RAID mode, all SATA ports run at RAID mode together."

So can I run the SSD on a 6Gb/s port in AHCI mode, and the two HDDs on 3Gb/s ports in RAID mode?

Thanks,

Family Man

I realize that, obviously if you are paying HD audio then you need HDMI in order to hear them. However some studies have suggested that most people can't tell the difference between normal DTS and and DTS HD anyway.

And if the source is normal DTS or DD to begin with I would be shocked if a person could tell the difference between a signal that originates from an optical cable and one that originates from HDMI.

Theoretically and in terms of measurables yes there is undoubtedly a difference, just not sure if it is acutally one that humans can distinguish ( unless of course the belief that they can colors the sounds they hear.

By all means go for it if you can, but as I said the intel HDMI output won't serve as an hd audio output redface.gif
