[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 644

post #6431 of 7108
I have to say that so far I love my Maximus IV Gene Mobo. And so far both ASUS 560 ti fit in their with ease (mind you there is very little space in between but I knew about that when I bought the Mobo). And I just got my 2 Monitors (ASUS VH236H) to add to my main one so Nivida Surround is up and running with ease.

Been playing Guild Wars 2 and on 1 monitor it is sweet..now with the 3 monitors I have had to slowly do a little changes in the options for the game since my FPS went down hill like the stock market. I know I know upgrade my Vid cards and I prob will in the future but for now will take a break on adding to the system and just enjoy it (will keep a eye out for some deals around Xmas).

Please do not flash new version of BIOS (BIOS date after 1.10.12) with FTK.
It appears that they have a bug in bootblock preventing board to boot. I don't know if it's my or ASUS fault, but before i finish my research, i advise everyone not to use FTK to flash new BIOSes. Sorry for that.
UPD: corrected in new FTK version.

I'd try to help you ... if I knew what a "bitspower crystal link" was redface.gif ... I'm assuming it's WaterCooling related ? Snorkle.gif

It's a plexiglass link between 2 graphics cards

According to L3pje; buy the longest and shorten it yourself.

After some digging and searching we need the 2 slot variant, but be prepared to do some DIY.

Issues with old versions of FTK was corrected. The reason was a bug in FD44Copier utility used internally by FTK. In some rare cases the utility was able to strip down more then 0x800 bytes from the beginning of CAP-file (BIOS images format on Z77 boards), making in unbootable. Was corrected in new version of FTK. Feel free to use it again. Sorry for inconvenience.

Thank you for the reply SortOfGrim! Ok I will get the 2 slot variant but you mentioned I would still need to cut it myself? Does that mean the spacing between slots is not standard on this board. I ask because the links are supposed to fit any motherboard out there, just have to get the one with right between cards.

Again, thank you for taking the time to reply!thumb.gif

Apparently it isn't standard, no. The OP (in Dutch) asked about this too, many couldn't give an answer so he just bought the smallest set (30-19-14mm) but none were perfect fit (too long or too short) so he used sandpaper to shorten a link (he didn't say which one he used). Let me know how it goes

Any Gene-Z (non-Gen3) owner here who's rocking a Sandy or Ivy Xeon in your rig?
Looking at the E3-1230V2 and so tempted to get one. Don't really give a damn about overclocking and don't need iGPU so it would be freaking perfect. Pretty much an i7 with the price of an i5 biggrin.gif
Most Asrock boards have listed the E3-12xx's/E3-12xxV2's as supported but didn't see many Asus boards having it listed. So it's a bit of a gamble but if it doesn't work I'll buy some other board and move my GZ to my HTPC.
