[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 444

Not really ... last rummor was supposedly OUT and on store shelves by BLACK FRIDAY ... well I guess in the UK/Europe they did, but not here in the USA.

 

And now there's THIS  - http://www.techpowerup.com/156365/ASUS-Rampage-IV-Gene-Detailed.html

 

 

drool.gif  so the Maximus IV Gene-Z ain't going to be the ONLY mATX board worthy of consideration anymore !

 

http://en.expreview.com/2011/12/08/asus-micro-atx-rampage-iv-gene-motherboard-debutes/19404.html

However, the pricing is not revealed, Rampage IV GENE is supposed to launch in January, 2012.

I have the Mugen 3 and it's a tight fit, only the 2 red RAM slots will work for me, I have 2 x 4gb. I can post a pic if that helps.

toyz72 ... no need to get sarcastic about it rolleyessmileyanim.gif , I'm trying to help ... and I was trying to see what you had as to why you thought you needed More/Better cooling maybe ?  that said would the Mugen3 120mm provide that much of an improvement over the Noctua NH-C12P SE14 140mm ?  What Temps are you getting ? and what program are you using to read those temps ? the Asus AI suite program to read temps has been know to give some false readings especially if you have other temps programs installed it creates conflicts with the readings.

sorry, i've been really irritated with this cooling issue. i really need a good solution for a tower cooler that won't interfer with me ram and comes with in the $50 mark. i have two cores running at 28c,29c, then two run at 35c and 43c. no matter what i try, i can't get them to level out alittle better. i just really need some suggestions on some coolers that won't interfer with my ram,or to wide that it hits my video card.

toyz72 ... no worries about it ... but dude those temps look fine ? in fact the 28 c& 29c maybe cooler than MOST on AIR ?

I think most are running like mid 30's to low 40's ? ... so it looks like that Noctua is working out just fine headscratch.gif

Again maybe it's the software you're using to read the temps ?

im using hwmonitor at the moment, but maybe i need to try something else? i also am running all noctua fans,four nf-p12's. maybe i should just look into higher cfm fans for the case itself? i switched from amd and ati to intel and nvidia. i must say this stuff run's alot hotter than amd side. taking me some getting use to.

OOOOOPS....... I think


oopsmymems.jpg

Over the years, I've always used the mem slot closest to CPU as primary slot
to use, for one stick installs and 2 stick

Tonight....for some reason, I was noticing others having their [2] sticks in the
other 2 slots [oppisite of what I did]. I'm using A1 - B1

So I drag out the manual.......of course i've got mine in what might be considered,
the wrong 2 slots. [using the drawing above]

Everything seems to be functioning well and not experiencing any issues.

Can I leave those sticks where they are ?
Any "real world" reason to move um ?

Don't laugh, Ya'll....................you'll be 60 too one day smile.gif

The best solution would be that Asus releases a new bios and removes the 60% restriction or lowers it to 20 or 30%, but in the mean time i think for $8 the akasa fan splitter will allow you to use the all your fans at lower rpm than 1000rpm restriction you currently have and you don't need to spend on new fans or new mobo, and all fans will still be dynamic behaving the same and according to the CPU temps.

User mode with Fan Xpert+ allows 40% which is fine for me. about 700 RPM - more or less silent at idle.

Strange the very latest version of Fan Xpert+ has the test for Chassis fans grayed out again, last version would let me test, even tho it didn't really work. Using Fan Xpert 1.01.09 right now, BIOS 902, have not installed 1001 yet.

Does not seem possible to get 40% with just BIOS settings, only with the software.

LOL ... Well I'm getting closer,  just passed 43 last month, so 60 will come sooner than I want I'm sure. tiredsmiley.gif some days I already feel older than that.

As for your MEMORY SLOT question,  I guess if your not having issues, why bother ? but THAT issue plus the cheap price is why some of use just said F' it and filled up on 16MB blushsmiley.gif

But I think you're FINE as long as your RED/RED or BLACK/BLACK ... just don't do RED/BLACK or BLACK/RED and you should be OK. thumb.gif
