[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 59

post #581 of 7108
Seeing as the greatest downside to this board is its rather small amount of expansions slots, it seems to me that your interests may be better served by looking at different boards.

So I have to format the drive and reinstall while it's attached to the new motherboard? Darn, I was never aware that there was a difference.

Yeah the CoolerMaster GeminII S actually got in the way of the RAM's useless heatspreader that I love looking at ... so I'm changing it out for a Noctua NH-U9B SE2 that's on order from NewEgg, I HOPE THAT ONE WORKS OUT, plus I've got to re-wire the Front I/O led's of the HP's so I can plug them into the Asus Q connector. Also waiting on an adapter tray for the 2.5" SSD to fit the 3.5" HDD bays ... I'm kinda shocked the Crucial M4 didn't come with one, I saw some other brands included them. And I also installed 2 additional case fans at the mesh punch outs in the HP case side panels, so this thing should breath half way decent. I'm still trying to find some sheet clear plastic or ???, as I want to cut out the HP logo embosed in the side cover panel, insert the HP logo in CLEAR plastic and back light it from inside. So still some work to do before I boot 'er up, like you I've just been busy with other things and this hasn't been a rush or something I want to rush and not have a cherry "stealth-stock" but custom Mod rig.

While I'm all for people being excited over a build, you aren't going to be able to use 2x 580 Matrix cards with this board. There are only two PCIe slots for GPUs, and they do not have enough clearance for 3-slot cards between them.

One Matrix 580, or two 2-slot cards will fit. Two 3-slot cards will not.

Guess what, just 3 days after I said I had to postpone the purchase, I went ahead and purchased almost all parts for a running new build.

The only two parts I will buy later are video card and SSD.

We never know what could happen in life so why not enjoy now.

Hey everybody. Got my power back last night, but was too busy building a rig for my brother. I'll update the list tonight with the new owners and useful posts.

Thanks again for everything!!!
That looks much more likely to fit, but I'm not sure I would spend that much money in the case that it does not. Also, I don't know what slot your card is, but that riser is only x1. You can use the riser in the x4 slot but if your card is native x4 it will not fit the riser.

You do not necessarily format it before you install it on your new motherboard. But when you boot win7 from your optical drive to install, you can format it then.
