[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 450

post #4491 of 7108
I'm looking for a Maximus Gene IV z Gen 3 also, and the only place they are available now is in England.

Does anyone have a heads up on when they will be available in the USA ?

If Newegg's out stock ?? I'd just wait. Have you done just a general search at Amazon ?

Purchasing outside the U.S. is gonna finacially kill you. Our dollar is so seriously de-valued
the price you'd actually pay could be 50% or higher. Then you must deal with shipping.
Not a good idea......

Be patient.....you'll find um here stateside

Hello there!

I just finished building my Rig, my very first one, i'm very proud of it!

Here are the components, still planning to upgrade the HDD, won't be getting an SSD though since i'll only be using this exclusively for gaming.

Chassis = Cooler Master Storm Enforcer
MoBo = Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z
CPU = Intel Core i5 2500k
PSU = Corsair GX 750 80plus Bronze
GPU = 2x Asus ENGTX 560 Ti DCII in SLI
Memory = 8gb (2x4) G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600 1.5v
CPU Cooler = Noctua NH-U9B SE2
HDD = 1x WD Caviar Blue SATA3 500gb and a Seagate 300gb SATA2 (i think, just scrounged this from my previous computer.
Peripherals = Razer Orca Headphones, CM Storm Inferno Mouse and an A4Tech Backlight Keyboard

Looks like there is a bit of cable management, but yeah a bit more would make for a much nicer look to it.

A few minor suggestions:
  • Since you're only using 2 disk drives, you could put them all in the bottom and take out that upper drive housing and have much better airflow from the front of the case for your graphics cards etc.
  • Your front audio cable can actually fit through that little hole behind the power supply and comes out right next to the connector on the motherboard.
  • I'm not an expert on EMI, and I may be completely wrong here, but doesn't it seem like wrapping your SATA cable around your power cable like that is just asking for some sort of EMI problem? I know SATA cables are probably shielded pretty well, but there are limits...

What's wrong with his cable management? Twist ties FTW! biggrin.gif

My current build is still in the "not buttoning up anything till everything runs AOK for a couple weeks"


But as said above......just a little touch up would deff showcase your build. You got some really nice pieces parts BTW


Belows a couple pics of my "now" backup box. Built that one 5-6 years ago. Also worth noting: you'll get
increased air-flow having nothing in the way
