Hello Guys and Gals. I been Trolling this forum for some time now, and I too have tried many time to get the Gen3 version shipped from Europe but not to the US, to Japan where I currently live.

that is, until I found it here: http://www.excaliberpc.com/611331/asus-maximus-iv-gene-z-gen3.html

I just ordered it yesterday and currently waiting for it to be shipped. I checked the BBB website and found these guys to be legit, but the internet being what it is, I leave it up to each of you that want one to make up your own minds.

Hopefully I get it in about a week, seeing as to how getting mail to FPO address has always been a pain the the cajones.

Peace

After an hour of hair pulling and getting my fingers slashed more than a dozen times i managed to do a little more cable management, any more suggestions would be appreciated.

This is my first time building a rig so please bear with me, didn't know cable management was this much work, until now!

Why is everyone so hung up on getting a gen3? because of the PCI-E 3.0 slot? PCI-E 3.0 Cards will be backwards compatible anyway, besides, even if you get a gen3 maximus gene-z if you SLI or Crossfire the same will still run at x8/x8, so what's the use?

Well I can answer that for you Honestly, this is the first time in 3 years I can afford to build a brand new system from scratch, and since I had not bought the regular version of the Gene-Z68, I told myself why not just buy the Gen3 version?

While not in stock yet, i think it should be soon, you can always preorder, amazon doesnt charge until the product ships, and if you find it elsewhere just cancel the preorder.

Just ordered two Maximus Gene IV Z Gen 3 boards , should receive them in a few days.

Will build the end of this week or early next week and send pics. One of these is for home, the other for office.

Both have 120GB OCZ SSD Solid 3 drives for operating system and programs, Zodak 560 TI graphics card's, 1 TB Sata 3 HHD's,1 TB Sata 2 HHD's for storage, i7 2700K CPU's, Antec 620 Coolers. both computers will be encased in In Win Dragon Slayer cases, and both have a PCIe USB3. 3 port external and 1 port internal Express cards, along with Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 Power supplies and 16 GB of Vengeance 1600MHz ram for each. In case you are wondering , I chose the Antec 620 because it barley fits in the case (top fan area). Both have ASUS Blu Ray DVD burners also.

This is major overkill for what I do but I don't want to do this over again for a while. I do lots of Photshop and starting to do some video stuff. I have a very nice system now, but I HATE waiting for the layers to blend and BLA, BLA, BLA, so I'm going with this.

I just built a m-ITX system with a i5 2500K for Photoshop stuff at work for my graphic artist to use and it is blazing fast .... it does have a SSD for programs and that makes a huge difference ...... If any of you don't have a SSD for your operating system and programs, you must do so, it makes a huge difference, and I mean huge !. This system is encased in a Sugo SG 06 and it rocks.

See u later,

And back.

Weird readings from Hwmonitor was probably due to my faulty H100. Bought a new one while waiting for RMA and the weird readings have disappeared.

I guess I got a crappy chip. I can't seem to pass 24 hrs of prime95 with the 2 step overclocking at 4.6 (4.6 @ 1.35v). I had to drop the multi down to 45 and passing at 1.35v.

I really need to buy a chip when it first appears, I always seem to get binned chips.

Now to get pics of my setup so people can yell at me about cable management. I'm one of those people who'll shove a rat's nest of wires in the corner of the case out of airflow and not care.
