Who Flamed you? Most people hold the Gene-Z in high esteem. Would you mind sharing where you received this kind of treatment?

Does anyone know if an HIS Iceq H687Q1G2M 6870 will fit this board without hitting anything along the way especially the sata ports? http://www.hisdigital.com/us/product2-663.shtml

I've got a Gigabyte 570 gtx and a Mugen 3 cpu cooler.
At the beginning i thought it wouldn't fit but there is enough space for it.
I advice you to get a case where you can hide your cabels behind then everything fits

^^^ Yep I just uninstalled and reinstalled those drivers you posted LA_KING and still doesn't work. It powers the device, but won't actually run the USB 3.0 device. It will work with a normal USB 2.0 device.

edit...

Which kind of sucks bc honestly I just realized the 2 reasons I got this board over others boards no longer apply.

I use usb 3.0 and needed a usb 3.0 internal header (mobo has but doesn't work)

I wanted SSD cache, but it crashes my computer. Soooo I ran the standard SSD for programs and HHD for user files.

Kind of bums me out, but I do love this motherboard either way.

You wanted to use a ssd as cache with the OS on a hdd or also on a ssd?

I have this case and everything besides the power cable is out of the way, though it can be moved.

Hey guys just happened upon this thread seems like a bunch of good information. I am doing a new mATX water cooling build and this board was a must buy. Haven't gotten my custom case yet but definitely will post up pictures when I put everything together next week.

Quick question. My board came with the 0702 bios and I installed the board in my HAF-x to setup everything and make sure the board was functional and work on my overclock and such and install my OS. Everything is working great and I'm sitting pretty at 4.8 on my i5 2500k on air. Curious if there is a reason to update the bios to the 09xx version? I did notice the 0702 bios was removed from the front page. Was there something buggy about it? Thx for any help guys. I'm gonna try to get through this almost 500 page thread over the next few days lol.

Thread Starter 

Give it some time ... we will figure out the USB 3.0  issue ... I pm'd Raja@Asus and he said he'd check in on this thread from time to time but if we had issues that needed his attention to PM him, so I'll get on that before long, and as for the SSD Cache you can still do that ... it's just that using the SSD as a BOOT/OS drive makes BETTER use of it ... in my case I ended up with TWO Crucial SSD's a 128 GB and a 64 GB ... because I bought the initial 64 GB for the SSD cache and then was going to use it as the BOOT/OS Drive and found it to be too small for my liking for that, so I bought a 128 GB as well since NewEgg wouldn't take back the 64 GB only exchange it for another, so I might try the 128 GB as my BOOT/OS drive, my WD Cav Black 1TB as the FILE/BackUp drive and the 64 GB SSD as a cache to speed up the HDD just that small extra bit, but it's most likely such a small gain, I might be better off using that 64 GB SSD in my backup computer as a BOOT/OS ? I gotta still play with that idea.

Reposted from earlier, still searching for solutions:



Has anyone experienced issues with S3 sleep? (the standard sleep when you click on "sleep" from the start menu)


I switched to a new 2500K about a week ago, and my setup is currently 14 hours Prime95 Blend stable at 4.8 GHz, 1.35V with LLC on 50% and PLL Overvoltage enabled. Previously, I ran a different 2500K chip @ 4.7 GHz, 1.4V, with LLC @ 75% and PLL Overvoltage enabled. I had no problems with S3 sleep on that chip on my GENE-Z, which has the 0902 BIOS.

I am still using the same 0902 BIOS now, but I've noticed that the system sometimes will not come out of S3 sleep and requires a hard reset.

Anyone know what may be causing this/possible solutions?
