It's great because they are ALL pwm too. I know my other "enthusiast" -scoff- mATX board which is a 890GXM-G65 has only two fan headers. The only one that is a four pin is the cpu fan. Ridiculous. It was my own fault for not researching more before I bought it. I was lucky in one sense in that I could get my pII 955be to 4.0Ghz at stock voltage.

Lots of people need more than 5 headers though. I know I will for my Gene build. I think I have at least 6 fans going in there.

The abundance of PWM headers is one of the things that sold me on this board.

As Kings said, that's what y-connectors are for.

Thread Starter 
Kvjavs,

This might be another good link to add to the Front Page ... http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showth...9102#post19102 ... Mason@ASUS on the ROG board posting some detailed info about the MAX IV Gene-Z .


Also ... not sure IF this answers anyone's questions about it, but on the ROG board they at least touched on the missing X-Fi sticker ... http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showth...l-sticker-chip.

I did it!! I said F*k it, if I find a pcie x4 cable to fit the x-fi card, then I find it. If I don't, I don't! I just ordered the MIVGZ from amazon.com!

'Bout to join ya'll's ranks!!!!

I finished reading through the whole thread and all the info in it helped me decide which mobo to go with - thanks to all the members!! A special thanks to Ovlazek, Kvjavs and ablearcher for their contributions!

Pretty pumped!

If any one is looking for a decent cpu cooler, you might want to consider the Corsair H80...

I will probably be buying one for my system...once I save some money!

Hi there, first time post, but after reading this thread, I felt the urge to post my build. Sorry for the nasty quality

This is exactly what I'm using with the board, inside an FT02B. Works great and under load is still quieter than most people's systems at idle (@4.6 / 1.28v). The cooler can handle 5GHz easily, but the fans are too loud for my preference in a 24/7 box at max rpm.

I also swapped the stock H80 fans for AP121-WL's in push/pull exhaust, favoring low-noise over CFM.

Are the water hoses on your H50 as stretched as the look in the photos? I like the idea of the front mount location, nice job.
