I've been running 3203 with no issues on my 2500k, which is oc'd at 4.6. That being said I might be upgrading to Ivy and moving my 2500k to another build so the bios flash was justified on my end. redface.gif

Hi to all mATX members,

URGENT Question: can anyone please confirm that Maximus IV GENE or Maximus IV GENE-Z are compatible with Scythe Ninja 3 CPU cooler?

If there are any pics, I would very much appreciate it.

What interests me is if cooler or fan covers RAM slots and if there is enough space between NINJA 3 and first PCI slot? The Video card I am using has a backplate (Asus GTX 570 DCII).

I think it's mainly people with older revisions of the mobo if I'm correct?

Also I have a regular z68 not the gen3, which I assume also has PCI-E 3.0??

I don't believe that the regular board has pci 3.0 only pci 2.0.

I am planning on getting the gene v along with the intel 3570k. Is it worth the upgrade? Thinking about selling the gene-z

I was just running some stress testing just to adjust my fans and they all completed fine, but I got this warning below from FAN Xpert and Probe II shows it too. I know it has to do with the Motherboard Temp but I've never seen that before ?

Regarding 3305...

I am selling my old equipment and building a Ivy/p8z77 v-pro build right now. I thought I would do a few tests to see how each board handled each chip and report back here.

I got as far as installing 3305 (and dl and setting up all drivers, monitoring programs, etc) with my sandy to find any setting that I touch in the bios so far is pushing my CPU voltage from ~1.2 to an exact 1.472. This number doesnt change with speedstep or anything, but when I look in the bios it says auto.

After seeing it act that way there is no way Im dropping my ivy chip in this board as 1.472 in sandy is ok, Ivy on the other hand might get cooked. Now I have to revert bios back for the guy im selling this to. (and I spent hours setting this thing up for testing last night so I hope that doesnt F up any installed progs)
