Great, thanks
That looks better, but I see 1 different ram type in your ram slots there. Looks like the 4th one doesn't have a heatsink on it.Does the edge of the cooler sit over the ram slots?
Will 40mm high ram like this http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=425 fit ok?

Cheers

Yep I had to remove it ...

however in YOUR case ... literally mean " CASE " ... you could just raise the CPUHS FAN to clear the G. SKILL RIPJAW X's Height = 40mm RAM heatsink ... in my SFF HP case I couldn't or the side cover wouldn't close ... your mATX case is actually slightly WIDER than my HP Case , so you're good to go with that adjustment I couldn't do. thumb.gif

The CORSAIR Vengeance  Height = 52.5mm  / vs.  The G. SKILL RIPJAW X's Height = 40mm  ..... so your G.SKILL RAM won't sit as HIGH as my CORSAIR Vengeance  do in that Pic.

I have also disabled all overclocking. I have also installed all of the latest drivers and updates. I believe the motherboard may be defective, a brand new gene z gen 3 that i just built up.
Let me describe the freeze: i have only observed this behavior after the computer has been on for 24-48 hours. Everything will be working fine and then suddenly links on a browser wont work at all. Then i will try to open task manager, which will not open. I can try to open apps from the start menu, but they flash for a second, and then disappear without opening. After i have tried to open several apps, explorer will freeze.
What is strange is that i can still move the mouse. I can still hear sound in the background. The numbers and animations on my widgets continue to work fine. But everything is locked up. There is no hint of the problem in the logs and since i cannot open task manager, i cannot troubleshoot individual programs.
Pushing the reset button is my oly option, and the computer reboots fine and then continues to work fine for 24-48 hours until the next freeze.
The bottom line is that my last system was stable 24/7 for months at a time, and this new asus based system can barely make it for a day or two without a restart! Not very encouraging!
Any advice or help is greatly appreciated. Otherwise i plan to return the board to newegg for a refund and get something else.

I am still having this exact problem. Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated!

I think its a driver/software issue myself. I would unhook my system drive plug in a different drive load windows on it and see if the issue persists.

Anyone know how long ASRock usually takes to complete an RMA after they've received your motherboard ? They received mine over a week ago and haven't responded to any emails since issuing the RMA #.

ASrock and Asus are not the same company. So many people in this owners thread might be someone that can provide the answer but still you may be better served by asking on a ASRock thread.

d'oh
I know, must have had too many windows open, sorry 'bout that. I've been considering the Gene-Z as a replacement.

It's a great board and if you need a mATX board probably one of the best you can get for socket 1155 IMHO

Wow, just found this thread. Good thing I did because I can now ask my questions directly to Gene Z owners. So here's my first question:
(specs in sig) I am wanting to go sli with another MSI card. As it is right now my cpu cooler is literally touching my video card. I can feel the heat between the two so I added 2 120mm fans to the cpu cooler and added a 120mm fan in one of the hdd bays directly blowing through the video card. My temps are at :
I5 2500K OC-4.5 at 1.30 volts idles at 35-38* on all cores and never exceeds 60* under load. Did the IBT and ran 10 passes at max settings with no heat issues.
MSI 560GTX 448 TFIII PE/OC OC-925/1850/2100 at 1.024 volts. Idles at 36-42* and under load it never exceeds 60*. Have played BF3 maxed settings for hours on in and I once got to 63*.
Anyways what I am trying to get at is will adding the second card raise the temps to much on the first card? From what little I have read some say a difference of 10-15* hotter from one card to the other. Water cooling is not an option right now due to funds and lack of water block kits for this card. What options do I have or will I be ok with 2 cards. I can always add more fans in the hdd bays facing the cards if needed and they can be some monsterous high rpm fans.
Thanks for your time.

Terry
