[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 89

post #881 of 7113
Hello fellow MIVGZ owners! I'm part of the family

I have an issue here, not sure if it's mobo related. I'm experiencing an occasional subtle beep from my PC when it's running but I can't seem to identify where it's from (since it's not loud and it only comes randomly). I've checked all my temps and there're no alerts/warnings from my AI Suite II as well.

I understand that the mobo doesn't come with an in-built speaker, but I have a small external speaker included in my casing connected to it. It beeps loud and clear when POST-ing, I doubt it's the source since the one I'm hearing is much quieter.

Any idea guys? So far PC still running well, no crashes at all but the beeping is a little annoying.

Print the ad out ... and take it in when you buy and ask them to price match ? worth a try, all they can do is say no and you pay what you would have without trying.

Nice case. Was gonna get one of those myself. Is there enough room on each side of the 180mm fan for a 200mm, but obviously held in with zip ties or tape of the Gods?

Also, where the heck is your SSD?

Have any of you guys tried the usb 3.0 header yet? It doesn't seem to work when I plug the front panel usb 3.0 wire into the header, yet it works when I put on the adapter to plug into the usb 2.0. So the front panel works. Is there some setting I need to do in the bios?

No, not enough room for 200mm. There's like maybe a quarter of an inch extra on each side. There's holes for a 140mm though, lol.

The SSD is under that little cage in the bottom front there. It actually screws onto the case bottom then that cage goes over it and you can put a 3.5HDD in there.

Sounds like adding a DETAILED LIST to the FRONT/HOME PAGE w/ ALL the most UPDATED / recomended Drivers, w/ LINK where to download from, would be in order if ASUS doesn't do this. That is something I liked about having an OEM HP system, they had their built in software that scanned your system against the web for recent driver, software and component updates and automatically handled that for you ... this being my 1st build I'm a little disappointed that it seems ASUS expects YOU & ME to do ALL of this manually and sometimes doesn't even have all the latest info/drivers on their own web-site, oh well we can do it here.
I'll start up the list ...

Work in progress, until it's completed do not add to front page yet.

Also looking for help to compile this COMPLETE list ... I know there's A LOT MORE STUFF ... I know VIRTU also had an update when I tried to install it already, so there's drivers / software programs / User Manual updates ... let's get a more complete guide since ASUS is falling short on us.


============================================

UPDATE 9/10/2011:
Great list done up by IronAge = http://www.overclock.net/14599801-post1884.html is NOW incorporated into the above, THANK YOU IronAge.
UPDATE 9/12/2011: NOW incorporated new ASMEDIA XHCI USB 3.0 host controller driver into the above, THANK YOU Woschdsubbn = http://www.overclock.net/14702073-post2148.html + Woschdsubbn's great list http://www.overclock.net/14322267-post902.html

============================================

How to install drivers =
Quote:
Should I download the drivers out of their site or the cd that comes with the motherboard?
CD first ... because you'll need the NIC driver to go online ... then you can decide if you want to update the BIOS and other drivers, SOME people are still running on the Original BIOS w/o problems, others updated and had issues, other updated and got rid of issues ... it's for sure a YMMV kinda thing.

Steps I took: ... others might have done it differently ?
- assemble your system, but leave INTERNET disconnected
- turn on/Boot up your system
- do a CLEAN install of Win7 on your SSD/HDD
- install NIC/LAN drivers from Asus Support CD
- Connect INTERNET & run windows updates
- install drivers & apps from Asus Support CD
- decide about BIOS/driver updates off Asus website support
Hope that helps

It all depends on your needs. The fact that it's mATX shouldn't necessarily stand in your way. The only real downside to its mATX'ness is the relative lack of expansion slots. If you're a person who likes to fill up all 6 slots on a normal board, you'll find yourself SOL quickly. On the other hand, if you're like me and use two slots max and the others always sit empty, you might be in good shape.

Take a look at a list of the board's features. Read the reviews. See if it has everything you need and, if it does, then YES BUY IT.

Do it again, but exit out/turn off the Asus software and see if you get the same results. I have found that if I have more than one program trying to read the temps I get weird results, so I only use one at any given time.

You will get more SATA connections with the Asrock board and it's a full ATX MB. There is almost a $100 difference between the two, so if the Maximus will work feature wise you will not find a better board at that price. The Asrock Extreme4 is also a good board at the same price as the Maximus. The biggest reason I went with the Maximus was the size and it has most of the high end features of the regular board, like the LED post display.

The SSD is under that little cage in the bottom front there. It actually screws onto the case bottom then that cage goes over it and you can put a 3.5HDD in there.
How many 140's can you have?
