So, possibility of getting a DOA board. It looks like you guys have solved the Intel LAN prob though?


Ill chime in about Newegg packaging- Im on East Coast. I get stuff fast because Im near NJ, where there are warehouses. But I did get some RAM in a large box (size of a minitower almost) with just a few loose pieces of brown paper. Ram was able to bounce around like in a clothes drier Im sure.

Can't help you on the shipping but I do suggest picking one up in person as you can inspect it or try it out first maybe a local pc dealer?

Intel LAN problem require the board to be rma as well... As in general with computer parts Ive gotten bad drives ram boards video cards in the past so you are not alone.

I have read through all of the posts for this topic/message thread and haven't found anyone that has the situation you experienced with other ASUS boards and are concerned with for the M4GZ. Maybe the reason no one is responding is because they haven't had the problem and can't add anything constructive? Anyway, good luck with your purchase decision!

I read in several places about the problems with these 2 boards- they carried forward the same problem with the drive controller. I bought a replacement plan when i bought the Gene III just in case so got all my money back today (minus the plan fee.)

So, how are these Maximus Gene IV boards? Any unexplanable BSOD, or disappearance of your other drives?

What kind of mATX cases are you guys using and what cooling solutions? I'm thinking about getting this board and a 2600k but after looking at some mATX cases, it seems like a real PITA to get something to fit in there.

In PSU's way... it's an A70, not H70.

That suck, it took me long to find one I like. Copper & direct touch. A50 would not fit either and results show it is less performing. Anyway, back to shopping.

It could have fitted if it wasn't from the CPU placement on the motherboard. I looked at a Rampage 3 GENE and the CPU is closer to the edge and I think that would be enough to clear the PSU.

Not sure I will be able to fit a heatsink with a 120mm fan there. I wanted it so the fan would push into the 140mm fan of case on top. I don't want a heatsink that push air over the CPU and make the air goes everywhere in the case.

I have the same case but I will be water cooling. I know the other guy on this thread with that case uses a Noctua C14. That would perform better than the A70 anyways I believe.

Did you already buy the A70?

This is one reason I went with the Corsair H60, i.e., I think it will fit more mATX case situations than the air cooler options. The good air coolers are huge when compared to the Hydro Series coolers. The Hydro series coolers all but eliminates the issues with DIMM slot interference, too. It won't be the answer for everyone, but it fit my criteria.

*Fit wasn't an issue in the Antec Nine Hundred, but it is temporary for this build. I will move it to an mATX case in the near future.

Lastly I know it sounds stupid, but check the box again sometimes those little buggers like to play hide and seek, like under the big ass ROG sticker ? and make sure your wife/kids/roommate/dog/gremlins didn't walk off with it before you ball out the customer support rep.
It's highly embarassing to admit, but just as I was moving my finished build over to the other room I heard something inside, and stuck behind the mobo I found the CD.

Sometimes I just feel like an idiot

In other news, anyone know what the CPUTIN temperature means? Mine keeps jumping between 60 and 127 degrees celsius... just those two, and randomly at that...?

Edit: AUXTIN does the same >_> I'm thinking it must be a glitch? Otherwise it would surely be able to distinguish temperatures between those two?
