[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 84

post #831 of 7107
So I was looking through the owners manuel and looking through the bios, I could not seem to find how to control a single case fan header. I wanted to run 1 case fan at max for my H60 pump, And run the cpu_fan / opt_fan on auto so it does not get to loud. I can do this but if I wanted to run 1 case fan at max, All the other case fans are at max. I just wanted to run 1 of them at max. Any suggestions?

I had considered it, but decided it would be better if I just put the OS on the SSD and use the larger HD as storage.
This. I have not tried with the Gene yet, but I did just upgrade my work pc to a Gigabyte Z68X-UD4 and got a Corsair Force 3 to use with the IRST. I did not like it one little bit. That could also be because I have been spoiled with boot time from having the OS installed on ssd's in the past. Needless to say I immediately reinstalled the OS on the ssd at work. My C: drive only had something like 38GB on it anyways. It's all server based (which I also built) at work.

I honestly think most people will benefit more from having an OS ssd as opposed to the cache.

How's the airflow on it? Personally I think that those HP Pavilion's have one of the best designs for OEM cases.
I dunno but I did all I can to try and improve it , and/or will be doing so ...

- The BFG PSU has a big 135mm exhuast fan that seems to move a lot of air.
- I've got the 2 x's NOCTUA 92mm fans doing their Push/Pull thing around the PCU / RAM area.
- The HP had a stock 92mm fan exhausting the rear of the case, but I'm looking for a better quality "blue" LED fan to exchange out.
- I added an 80mm Fan on the left side panel in the HDD cage that brings in air and keeps the HDD cool. (posted the pic's of this in thread before, likewise looking for a better quality "blue" LED fan to exchange out)
- The GPU card Fan.
- And I've got a CoolerMaster 120mm Fan w/ "blue" LED light on the right side panel.

So 2 fans near the Front/side panels (80mm & 120mm) bringing in cool air.
3 fans (2 x's 92mm + GPU fan) moving it inside from front to back.
And 2 fans (92mm & 130mm) at Rear/PSU rear exhausting the hot air out the back.

Haven't done a heat check of the board / CPU yet, not even sure I know HOW to check that properly to tell you the truth, so ummm yeah I doubt that even comes CLOSE to answering your question does it ?

For monitoring CPU temps, I quite often use CoreTemp. HWMonitor is also pretty dang good if you ask me. It is also better in that it keeps track of temps aside from CPU. Plus the same programmer makes CPU-Z which is vital for overclocking.

OK, so would this be your recommendation to me and could I even do it ?

- SSD = Crucial M4 64 GB
- HDD = WD Cav' Blk 1 TB
- also have the HP 500 GB PocketMedia HDD slot on this rig.

Would WIN 7 Pro 64 bit fit on that small of a SSD ? or should I exchange for larger ?

Can BOTH options be done ? have 2 x's SSD drives (I'd buy a 2nd) and a HDD ... have faster Boots w/ one and the cache with the other ?

Sorry for all the noob questions Ovlazek, but you and a couple other guys are really providing me my hands on education in my 1st computer build here, so THANK YOU guys for all your past / present / & future help.

64GB is ample space for Win7Pro. Like I said in regards to my work computer, I only am using 38GB for the OS, and AutocadLT2011 plus browsers and the like. I personally find 60GB small for a boot drive as I like to install a few games that I play regularly on it as well. I used to have a 60GB Vertex 2 in my primary, but I upgraded to a Intel 510 120GB. I forget my usage of it though. I have a 120GB ssd in one of my lappies with COD4, Brink, Diablo 2, L4D/L4D2, TF2 and I am about 80GB used.

You definitely can have an OS/Programs drive in addition to a HDD with an SSD cache though.

Glad to hear I have been able to help you out! It's a learning experience for everyone around here. I have only been building pc's for about 2 years or so and feel so comfortable now. Any problem I have can be addressed on overclock!

EDIT: You can add an SSD as a cache at any point in time. So before you do that, I'd consider upgrading your GPU unless you are running lower res. But I am also an AA nut.. :rollseyes:
Just my two bits.

EDIT 2: I see your monitor is 1680x1050. That would be my next upgrade if I were you. My dad uses that res, and any time I work on it, I feel like I have to squint at it.

What it does, in my experience (as well as in the experience of everybody who's ever posted about it), all it does it cause your system to **** up.

Leave it disabled.

You can't. Both CPU headers are controlled via the one set of settings, all chasis fans are controlled by the other settings.

You could always put everything that you want running at max on the CPU headers (use a splitter if necessary) and set those headers to run at max then put everything else on the chassis headers, configured to a lower speed.

Personally, I use all PWM fans, which allows me to configure everything to an auto-adjusting speed, based on a profile set up. This doesn't interfere with the pump since it is only a 3-pin connector and doesn't get slowed down (ie: turned off and on constantly) via the PWM interface.

I wanted to like this board...I really did. But I think at this point, I'm breaking up w/ Asus. After 10 years of loyalty, I've had enough.

-First Gene-z: CPU fan headers didn't work, couldn't get SLI to run
-Second Gene-z: Couldn't get SLI to work, now, the 2nd PCI-E slot doesn't seem to work period

I'll be calling NewEgg tomorrow. I'm looking at going w/ an EVGA board instead. Bummer, I like the Micro-ATX form factor, and this board had EVERYTHING I wanted and then some. I just don't want to test the whole "third time's a charm" theory.

OK guys ... time to take a second and think about helping ...

Our fearless leader Kvjavs, doesn't have his Max4GeneZ yet and was talking about sticking an i3 on it ? FOR SHAME ! This board needs an i5 2500K at least, but cries out for an i7 2600k ... however with his recent weather / storm related issues in his area, money is tight and a brother man needs help.

Time for a BAKE SALE, Donation Drive, turn in those Bottles & cans at the Recycle Center ...
we NEED to HELP this man get this Board ! it is our duty !

COME ON !!! dig deep, give 'til it hurts ... MAN DOWN, but we will leave NO MAN behind !

CAN I GET AN AMEN !



Disclaimer: This post is meant to be funny, and overclock.net in no way would allow such a thing to happen, unless they were really really cool guys wanting to help a brotherman out, but ummmm yeah.
