I think the jmicron is strictly for e-sata. I have mine disabled since the added boot time annoyed me and I dont plan on using that connection anyways. The red sata is sata3 and the black are sata2 which are not related. I dont know why intel only has 2 but amd gets i think 6 sata3 on their mobo's with the am3+ chipset. Cant remember its been a while since I switched.

Bios is 3203...I have messed with different bios versions on different platforms and have noticed slightly different voltage requirements when switching but at least for me all the bios versions up to this one seemed consistent. I havent messed with anything newer than 3203.

All drivers are from the original install cd, dont think windows updates any of the hardware either so it should still be the cd stuff but that shouldnt matter much.

-edit
Maybe jmicron also handles raid too. Can't remember. All I know if I don't need it lol

It seems the JMicron JMB36X PATA handles eSata, IDE & SCSI. Since I don't use those, I just turn it off.
There's lots of stuff I don't use therefor I disable it, I love msconfig thumb.gif

Apparently ME is pre-installed (verification) but you need to activate it. Still not sure why I need it.. Anyone?

I don't know what it does! Since you got it installed you must know what you can do with it, right? biggrin.gif Like I wrote before, if I don't use it I disable/uninstall it.

Intel SRT is indeed used for SSD cache, since I didn't install/activated Intel ME I don't know if you NEED it in order to run. Basically if your computer runs smooth I would just leave it alone.

In the beginning I did had Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver installed but I had issues with it so I removed it..probably cause I use one sata port as a 'X-dock' (Hot swap) but I'm not sure (it was a year ago).

why is it ok for the mosfets on the back of the motherboard to not have heatsinks on them?

Because they are designed to not produce significant amount of current that would produce through them and in turn produce less heat that wouldn't need heatsinks?

If I overclock my CPU, won't those ones get hotter too?

Nice, some fellow owners!

I picked mine up three months ago when I saw a guy on Craigslist selling a bunch of nice 1155 motherboard for $50 each. I was kind of skeptical but I went to check them out. Six out of Seven boards had bent LGA pins. I told them they were no good unless I could fix them. We ended up talking for a while and he said, "Tell you what, take all the boards with you, and if you can get them to work, then just pay me for the ones that work." So I ended up fixing all but one:

2 P67 Sabertooths
2 Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3
2 P8Z68-V Pro
1 Maximus IV Gene-Z68

I loved that Maximus despite it was the hardest one to fix. The pins were completely jacked up but I kept trying and trying and eventually got it working again.

One more thing, I was beginning to think my Maximus is slightly crippled. Reason being no matter what I do I can't get past 4.3GHz stable on my i5-2500K. I sold my other board and kept this one because of the state of the LGA pins, and sometimes when you pull the CPU out they need some minor tweaking to be in working order again. I couldn't ebay it in this condition without making enemies so I decided to keep it for myself. On the other boards I used, I could get 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 with about the same voltage I get 4.3 right now. I did notice the Maximus BIOS has way more options and voltages than any other BIOS I have ever used. Perhaps my problem lies in those settings. Does anyone have an tips or pointers that they would care to share with me?

Check my FRONT PAGE ... lots of stuff there for OC'ing basics that SHOULD get you at least 4.6 GHz +/-

3 step Simple Guide to OverClocking your Maximus IV Gene-Z, Thanks to Rhialto

How did I OC? | CPU Level Up = 4.6 | Ai Overclock Tuner = X.M.P. | That's it! Simple as that! biggrin.gif
To enable voltage drop on idle:
* Go under Digi+ VRM/POWER Control
--- set VCore Load-line Calibration to 75% or 100% and VCore Phase Control to Optimized
* Go back to main menu
--- set CPU Voltage to Offset Mode
