Too many conditions involved, I don't want to do another 12 hour Prime95 run just to have RealTemp showing the duration:

"2. MUST have a screenie WHILE UNDER LOAD with your OCN name (notepad etc), CPU-Z 1.57.1+ and REALTEMP 3.67+ ONLY!!

***REALTEMP must show the duration of how long it's running, minimum of 12hours same as Prime95 like THIS!!!***"

My understanding of the Lucid Virtu technology is that it's not a simultanious DUAL graphics solution ? ... in other words you wouldn't be Gaming on your 23" monitor using your discrete GPU graphics card while at the same time being able to watch movies/videos on your 42" TV using the iGPU in your Sandy-Bridge CPU Chip ... it was more an either or software based selector, that based upon what you were doing would tell your system which option to use to conserve the most power ... use the iGPU Sandy-Bridge CPU Chip if you were doing normal tasks, web-browsing, watching videos, etc. ... but then switch over to your discrete GPU graphics card when you were doing any 3D intensive graphics work, transcoding, gaming, etc. ... without the need to swap video cable connections between them. I'm not sure HOW or even IF it works if you try to do BOTH things at once at the same time ?

Lucid Virtu software is able to assign tasks in real time to the best available graphics resources based on power, performance and features considerations, with no need for additional hardware. If high end graphics power is needed for applications like DirectX 11, high-resolution 3D gaming, the system will assign the job to the discrete GPU. If not, the discrete GPU automatically goes into idle mode, while heat drops, fan speed slows down and GPU utilization goes down to zero, resulting in a green, power-efficient, long-lasting system.

Did I understand the Tech wrong ? I know there's also a difference between Lucid Virtu (what we have on the Gene-Z) and Lucid HydraLogix (we don't have) which is actually a CHIP that would be on the MoBo and allow you use of different GPU configurations using different cards and even different brands (AMD & nVidia) together at the same time (If I read that right ? redface.gif).

Is Lucid Virtu even necessary for a setup like this? I could be wrong but from what I can see tell, Lucid Virtu seems to only be really helpful when using one monitor.

Thanks

Kingston supplies a mounting panel/tray/adapter [blue thing that matches the drive itself]

I just rivited it ...to the bottom of case. Guess you could nut/bolt just as well.

Hi , i want to buy this Mainbaord and i have one question.
I have a Scythe mugen 3 cooler and i'm afraid if i buy some ram wich is to high that it doesn't fit then.
Thats why i'm lookin for the perfect ram kit 8 gb 1333 from the vendor list :
I would like to take these, are they fine?

I think you have it right for the most part. From what I understand, Lucid Virtu uses the dGPU for 3D intensive tasks like you said.
But I actually wasn't asking about what would happen if I wanted to do both at the same time. I'm just confused about which GPU controls which content. For example, if I'm watching an HD movie on my 42" TV (which is controlled by the iGPU) and I drag the VLC player window to my 23" screen (which is controlled by my dGPU), is the HD video playback now accelerated with the dGPU? Same question goes if I move a game I'm playing, while in-game. Does it work that quickly? Does Lucid Virtu make it any more efficient when using dual monitors? Those are basically the only things I'm confused about.

My bad,

I meant the 3.5" drive mounted to the bottom of the drive cage at the top of the case.

Thanks again.

ahhhhhhh.......now yee desire me trade secrets, huh ?? rolleyes.gif

OK.....i'm EZ smile.gif

1st -- Lay a hard on desk with drives *boss's facing up. [ * AKA the holes that the screws go in]

2nd -- place a piece of [med density] stiff cardboard on top of drive, and rub the heck out of it

3rd -- flip the cardboard around and you'll see a perfect inpression of the drive, including most importantly , the threaded boss's.

4th -- borrow your Wifes [or Moms] Fiskar Scizzors and cut out templet. Punch out boss holes.

5th -- use machined screws the length needed to securly mount drive.
The use of varying sizes of spacers [plastic or rubber washers] is also another custom aspect to keep drive spaced away from base metal

Now you have the perfect templet to lay across any piece of metal , to transfer the HD screw positions.
NOTE: always drill the hole size a "teenie" bit larger than the actual machined screw

If you have a tight area to drill in , I use those nifty 90 degree drill attachments.
[ with this case, I obviously emptied the 2 optical drive bays]

This simple lil trick, allows you to install HD's in some really unique positions

Hey all - My GENE-Z arrived today. Upon inspection it appears to be slightly bowed along the back edge. It's not a lot, but it is apparent to my eye. I'm wondering if that is common and maybe how much risk there will be to the internal traces or components once I secure it into the case? Anybody else noticed anything like that or dealt with this issue/non-issue? Thanks for any info.
