What memory out there is compatible and will let me maximize it to 32gb ?

Honestly there is none. The only 8GB dimms that I have seen are server dimms. They will not work with this board.

The board technically supports 32GB, but the most you will get in the near future is 16GB.

ADATA [#SU3U1333W8G9-B] and Samsung [#M378B1G73AH0-CH9] according to ASUS's Memory QVL both make an 8 GB Dimm in the DDR# 1333 MHz class that will fit this board. http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/Maximus_IV_GENEZ/#MSL ... Good luck finding them though, and if you do I think it's like $1,000 PER STICK of RAM eek.gif.frown.gif

The problem is that you have two partitions with identical operating systems installed. Best bet is to get rid of one of the OSes. I guarantee if you do that the problem will go away.

I'm not sure how the BIOS sees partitions as I never partition my drives. If there are two "drives" in the BIOS with only one hdd installed, change the boot priority to the partition you want to load by default.

Why do you have Win7 installed in two different partitions anyways? A new $50 hdd will solve all of your problems if you do not want to erase your old partition.

Hopefully I helped. Good luck to you!

... It's as Ovlazek says, and no one answered I guess because this was somewhat discussed before by another that had boot issues because he tried to use an old HDD w/ the OS already on it ... it was mentioned then, that when changing out MOB's you generally should expect to reformat your HDD and to re-install CLEAN versions of your OS and various programs at this time.

AS for OC'ing this board, there was a post w/ a link for that also, but here it is again http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?2787-Maximus-IV-GENE-Z-BIOS-Guide-Overclocking ... if you need more than that I don't know what to tell you other than smilie_google.gif

And yeah, I have noticed the Gene-Z has all the important features, and look cool.

However, since it is a Tad more expensive VS the P8Z68-V PRO here in Norway, things get more complicated.

I have the Pro currently and I have the Gene inbound. The pro gives you two more SATA slots, so if you need more than six SATA slots then the Pro is the better choice. Overclocking will probably be similar, but the Gene should be slightly better. It really comes down to whether you want a mATX board or not. I like my PRO, but the size and features of the Gene just fit my build better, plus I like having a debug LED for troubleshooting issues.

I'm thinking of upgrading my secondary computer (775 Q9650) to Sandybridge.

If I bought the Gene-Z I think it would fit very nicely inside my primary PC - CM Storm Scout case, with some Black Vengeance I already have.

Then I could move my P8P67 PRO 3.0 to my secondary computer

Really, my secondary computer is good enough for it's use, but I'm wanting to buy something new tongue.gif

I am wondering what others use for WiFi connections these days. I haven't dealt with it, other than laptops that have a solution built-in, since the PCI slot solutions. I am noticing a lot of USB adapters and only a few, not well reviewed PCI-E slot adaptors, and wondering if that is what most people are using now. Is there a speed advantage to the PCI-E slot card adapters over the USB adapters?

Edit: Nevermind, I decided to use a USB adapter for now. Cheap and it won't fill a PCIE slot...
