In regards to GEN3, is the only difference PCI 3.0 ready? If so, it seems like a waste. By the time 3.0 cards are main stream, we will all have a new processor and motherboard anyways.
post #4363 of 7108
Well it was the same price... so it didn't matter to me.

I would suppose it could also have some improvements that didn't make it to the non-gen3 pcb/uefi.

But i cannot confirm this as i lack the comparison.
post #4364 of 7108
Did a quick comparison between the two using the info from Asus's site.

I think i didn't leave anything out except that the software cd has some USB 3 boost software.

Hope they aren't removing the rear I/O Clr Cmos button, info was kinda fishy

*Edit*
Forgot to mention the /like on the 22nm support!

Hello all - Long time lurker, first time poster. I've got all the parts for my next build except the MB as I've been waiting since the announcement of the Gen3. I was surprised to see crossbone had his in hand. I'm still waiting to see one in the US. Anybody else seen or heard of any? Hopefully soon as the waiting is torture (self-induced, I know). I'll post pics & screens as it all finally comes together.

Hey there. Thank's for the warm welcome :-)

I pre-ordered this 1 month ago from a german E-Tailer: CSV-Computer. That Time it was 154,99€. The non-gen3 was at the same price that time.

Oh, and concerning the clear cmos button. It's still there ;-)

So I am a member of the club now too! It is my first computer build since an Athlon Thunderbird system in 2000.

I am having one odd issue, any time I install any new program on my system my Wacom Intuos3 tablet(usb) mouse freezes. Sometimes if I plug and unplug it will start sometimes only on reeboot.

Everything is stock at the moment, I used the drivers from the disk for the motherboard. Same bios too. Drivers are newest Wacom ones. Any ideas?

What ahci drivers are you guys running?

I want to do one last reformat and wondering if I should stay with the MS AHCHI driver or the Intel RST driver?

Whats the difference? I don't plan to use the SSD caching.

Thanks all.

@ Ghostie75

 

If you read through the early parts of the thread you'll see several people has issues early on with USB / Wireless Mice and Keyboards ... most of us just switched to a wired mouse/keyboard ... and while I can't recall off the top of my head, I do know there was a resolution, something like a driver issue or update of the USB controller or something ? or some setting in the BIOS that corrected it ... you'll have to go back and read about it ... somewhere in pages 50 through 150 I think blushsmiley.gif
