Nah D14 or SA dont fit without touching card and in tower case cooler always bends bit down which makes it worse. SA fins touches backplate of card and D14 fanclips does same thing. i Dont really want cooler that is laying top of the gfx card as i move my computer quite a bit.

Genesis is 1mm less wide than SA so thought to ask if someone has it installed to this.

So there's several differt Brands nVidia and AMD that show SLI / CrossFireX rigs w/ our Little Gene-Z68 MoBo ... yours SHOULD work too ? unless your card is WIDER than a normal 2 Slot ?


Thanks for that. Looks like my package will be here today so I can test it. After seeing those pictures I am going to assume it is my cpu cooler blocking the card from be able to pivot upwards more. I will turn the cooler the other way and see how it works.
Thanks

I have the SA cooler and it does fit. Yes it does sit right against the pcb but you can also turn it the other way. Instead of flow from front to back you can have it flow from bottom to top or vice versa. Once my second card gets here today I will try a couple different ways and take a picture of it.

I know you can turn it, i had SA in my old comp and performance is not even close as good when you turn it blowing upwards, quite obvious really as when you instal it to that orientation all the hot air that rises from gpu goes thru fans to the heatsink and when you instal in "normal" way it does get cool air from fans front of the case. Atleast with my old i7 950 comp made easily 10c difference to cpu temps when both gpu and cpu were heavily loaded.

Needs to be set to DISABLED ! not enabled not on not auto not anything else ... DISABLED ! ... think I told you this before wink.gif though doing so YES may lower your OC'ing upper limits, even maybe under 4.6 MHz ?

Ok, im lost after reading 1000 posts about SRT/SSD's.

Today i received my Crucial M4 64GB SSD. (Its my first SSD)
I did a clean install with my HDD disconnected.
I did all the tweaks i found on several sites and i got a reading speed of 512MB/S and writing speed of 110MB/S.

The speed increase is awsome! I think this is good, but this board got SRT and i dont know if its enabled automatic or how i can enable it. Do u guys recommend SRT enabled?

Also can i enable the Jmicron in bios without having problems with my ssd?

Re:  SSD's and Intel's SSD Cache ISRT/RST technology

Frankly ... the prices of SSD's dropped to a point where Intel's SSD Cache ISRT/RST technology is actually a moot point already doh.gif ... unless you either turn around and buy another SSD, either a 120GB or bigger for your OS/Boot drive SSD and then use the 64GB you have to try the Cache to speed up your HDD ... or buy a smaller <32GB or ? for use as a Cache drive. That's what I am still working on myself, as it seems like its better advised to use a 64GB or larger SSD as your OS/Boot Drive and you'll get better overall speed and performance from your system this way than trying to use it as a SSD Cache drive.

Hope that helps you decide on what to do wave2.gif

Does that mean the "auto" setting really means "enabled"? Is there a difference between "auto" and "enabled"?

Disabling the PLL overvoltage definitely lowers the OC potential of my chip. With PLL Overvoltage enabled, I can hit 5.1 GHz stably (Prime95 tested) at 1.45V. I'm sure the limit will be much lower with the setting at "disabled."

Thanks for the reply btw

So i just purchased a Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3 motherboard and a i7 2600 (not the 2600k, if there's a difference?) and I'm trying to over clock it a bit but the CPU Level Up is greyed out in my BIOS, any idea on how to enable it? Or if I can't enable it, how can I go about overclocking without using that option?

Ummmm yeah .... an i7 2600K means UNLOCKS and can be OVERCLOCKED easy {turbo clock multiplier} ... an i7 2600 (no K) means LOCKED, CAN NOT be Overclocked using the turbo multiplier hence why CPU Level Up is GREYED OUT in your BIOS wink.gif DOH ! doh.gif

The savings really aren't there between the i7 2600K and i7 2600 ... if you don't need the extra CPU cache and Hyperthreading but still want a HIGH OC is why people get the i5 2500K instead smile.gif
