This has been bugging me for a while. Basically, I used to use a Asus Xonar DX and a single 570 just fine. Now, I have dual 570s in this motherboard and the second 570 blocks the PCI-E 1x slot, so I am unable to use my soundcard.

I am thinking about getting a new case, with more expansion bays and using some type of PCI-E extender cable to connect the soundcard. Would this work and is it really even worth it?

Yeah it's been done ... start with link, read the info and links on that page and beyond, it's all been discussed within ...

Useful Links & Info on PCI-e extension/riser cables, Thanks to LA_Kings_Fan

Does bios uptade have any real benefits. I mean my board is runing great and all but do I really get any noticable bump in performance? I have i5 2500k @ 5.0mhz at 1.4v, 8gb ripjawsX 1600 and gtx 670 dcuII. And I'm running stock bios that came with the board.

Seriously, if you're stable running like that, why in the world would you touch it? What performance are you missing that a new BIOS could possibly help with? It ain't broke dude, don't fix it!

I like fixing things until they break. Then it gives me reason to by more things. rolleyes.gif

Hey guys,

I'm wondering if you can help me with an issue I've had with my system. Main specs: -

Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3 (BIOS 3603)
3770K
16GB of Corsair RAM
Gigabyte GTX 670 GPU

I built this a few months ago. At first everything worked fine. But then I found that burning discs became very hit and miss. I was getting more failures than completed burns. So far I have tried 4 different burners, different SATA cables, different SATA ports, different burning software and burn speeds, and I have also upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8, but the problem persists with that. I use quality branded discs from Verbatim - the same discs I've been using for years - but I have tried other brands and they're the same. All of my drivers are up to date and there's no junk software or filter drivers or anything that could be interfering with the burning process.

I have an SSD and HDD connected to the red SATA ports on the MOBO. They work perfectly. The DVD burner is connected to one of the black SATA ports. Could it be that there's an issue with those ports on my board? Or could a BIOS update cause this? I have updated my BIOS a couple of times since I got the board, but I'm not sure if the issue coincided with doing that or not.

My system is otherwise rock solid and everything works fine, but it's very annoying having to go through half a dozen discs just to get one good burn.

Any advice would be gratefully received! Thanks!

You try a external writer just to rule out the rest?

AHCI sata or ide mode?

Thanks for the reply. SATA is an AHCI mode. I haven't tried using an external writer, but I might get an external caddy for one of my internal writers and try that.
