In Fan Xpert, there is only the option to adjust the CPU fan speed (for the 2 CPU headers) and the SYS fan speed (for the 3 sys fan headers). There is no option to control the 2 CPU fans separately or the 3 system fans separately, as far as I can tell.

Just collected some stuff today biggrin.gifEtc. (Click to show)

In Picture:
Asus Maximus IV Gene-z / GEN3 (For those who are wondering, the X-FI sticker is present. Should get a boost in sound quality with the addition of the sticker )
Noctua NH-D14
TP-LINK Wireless Lite N USB adapter
Corsair Force GT 3 120GB SSD
Leadtek Winfast GTX 580 3GB
SilverStone TJ08-E
Not Pictured (Already waiting for me at my parent's place):
Core i5 2500K
2 X 4GB Kingston DDR3 Value Ram
2 X 4GB Kingston DDR3 ECC Server Ram (Salvaged from my previous server, but worked in my P8Z68V mobo)
Samsung F3 1TB HDD
4 X Artic F12 PWM fans (Salvaged from my previous build)
To Arrive Soon:
Dell U2412M
Dell U2312HM
I'll be going home this Wednesday and will start building then. I shall post pictures if you guys want. I ordered the monitors today, and since i'm using a different bank to transfer the funds, they'll take 1 - 2 days to process. Then the delivery would take up to 5 days. Just keeping my fingers crossed to get it by the end of this week.
My last day of work (Resigned) is on the 6th of December. I'll be going off to college to continue my Degree studies early next year. I am 22 in case anyone is wondering smile.gif
*Add me to the list/club please.

Good times! Looks like it'll be a pretty strong system. Is it just me, or is that Noctua CPU cooler box competing for size with your motherboard box? What a beast.

This system really has the feel of looking under the hood of an automobile with those huge radiators, plumbing and the way the motherboard sits. Pretty sweet looking rig.

Good times indeed. My last computer was an Acer Aspire E500 which lasted me for about 4 / 5 years and I am hoping that this build would last (not be outdated but whoamikidding) in 3 years.

The box is huge but you should see the cooler in person when its placed beside the board or on top of it. Pictures does it no justice. The size of the cooler is quite intimidating in real life.

I would like to upgrade my PC, one alternative for mobo is the Maximus IV GENE-Z GEN3, the other is P8Z68-V GEN3. Does anybody have any experience with both? Is there considerable difference in overclock results? Or what is the advantage for MIVG?

You will be able to get a similar overclock on both if you have a good chip. I have the MIVG-Z, and my friend has the P8Z68-V. We can both hit around 5 GHz max. Both boards have a strong VRM design.

The MIVG-Z is smaller, but the P8Z68 has a better layout for SLI/Crossfire with an extra slot between the 2 cards for better airflow. So it really depends on what you want. The MIVG-Z also has some nice features geared towards overclocking, such as voltage monitoring points and a CMOS reset button on the rear I/O panel so you don't have to open up your case to reset CMOS. If you are planning to use onboard video, the MIVG-Z only has an HDMI port on the back, so you will need to use an HDMI-->DVI adapter for most monitors. The P8Z68-V has DVI+HDMI+VGA out on the back.

If you want to do a smaller build, though, then there is no question...MIVG-Z wins easily. Pair it with a small case like the Lian Li PC-V354 and you'll have a very powerful yet compact build.

thanks, yeah i got that a lot its pretty funny to see the huge video cards and the big compression fittings/tubing and then some little micro atx board lol.

A lot of people seem to comment on my rigs and that it reminds them of under the hood of a car

should have it finished later this week biggrin.gif

great mobo.. easy boot 104bclk with minimal voltage adjustments.. and +2200mhz RAM.. just working on pushing past 5.2ghz on my 2600k now. [still have all skew settings on auto]

 

*for overclocking CPU above 5ghz, i recommend setting switching freq for CPU VRM's between 400-450khz.. and using +150% OCP settings.

Hello all... first post. Please put me down as an official owner. Now, only if my SSD and Noctua cooler will arrive in the mail (hopefully tomorrow *fingers crossed*) - I can begin my upgrade...

Everything will be housed in a Lian Li v354 (silver) with a Zotac 570 AMP! to go with the Gigabyte GTX570OC in SLI. thumb.gif
