The video card is a plain 560, right? You can get a 560 Ti for that price.
I'll say this too: The direct CU is a decent card, but the cooler on the MSI twin frozr cards keeps the cards cooler while also being more quiet.

Hmm, LA_Kings_Fan your posting style makes my replies a bit strange, but i've done my very best...

I'm concentrating my links to Windows 7 (64Bit) drivers hereafter:

ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z BIOS
- First release Bios # 0208 / 2011.06.24 update / currently ON shipped boards
- Beta BIOS # 0605 / 2011.07.08 update / Note: Improves system stability / http://support.asus.com/download/dow...imus+IV+GENE-Z

INTEL Z68 Chipset Drivers
- Asus Version 9.2.0.1030 / 2011.06.09 update / currently ON shipped boards
- Intel Version 9.2.0.1030 / 2011.21.04 maybe the same like the driver from ASUS

INTEL Network Interface Card (LAN) Drivers
- Asus Version 16.1.0.0 / 2011.06.09 update / currently ON shipped boards
- Intel Version 16.3 ProSet / 2011.5.20

INTEL Rapid Storage Technology (RST) software Drivers
- Asus Version 10.5.1.1001 / 2011.06.09 / currently ON shipped boards
- Intel Version 10.6.0.1022 / 2011.06.08
- *UNTIL NOW I WOULD RECOMMEND TO USE THE MSAHCI INSTEAD OF INTEL RST FOR THOSE USING A SINGLE SSD FOR THE OS* (Intel RST = Problems with Trim partly unresolved yet!)

INTEL VGA / Graphics Drivers
- Asus Version 8.15.10.2372 / 2011.04.20 update / currently ON shipped boards
- Intel Version 15.22.1.2361 (8.15.10.2361) / 2011.4.13

Realtek Audio Driver
- Version 5.10.0.6363&6.0.1.63 / 2011.06.07 update / currently ON shipped boards
- Realtek Version 2.63 / 2011.7.12
***If you have an extra soundcard, i would recommend, to stick with it! Onboard sound causes rippling, noise and also the max loudness is limited*** (although my Soundblaster X-Fi card is pita, i'm continuing my struggle with it instead of using onboard pseudo X-Fi)

RAID Drivers
- see Intel RST above and keep my recommendation in mind...

SATA Drivers
- see Intel RST above and keep my recommendation in mind...

ASM USB 3.0 Drivers
- Version 1.10.0.0 / 2011.05.04 update / currently ON shipped boards
- ASMedia is a 100% ASUS daughter company, they don't provide drivers on their homepage

INTEL Automated Driver Update Utility
= http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support...r+dnlds_detect
***Better forget about "automatic driver installation" and regard your OS installation on your own***

***Sorry, but i can't see ANY single cause for using Lucid Virtue in a reasonable way (yet?)***
The big chance for using it was to hinder the main vga card going into working mode for power saving reason especially in dual display mode. But since the Intel HD is automatically switched off when an additional vga card is used, even in dual screen mode there's no way yet for saving energy with this half-baked feature!! And people running Intel HD for ripping videos while gaming are very rare, eh!? This is merely a niche for too less interested parties. Maybe the next Intel products are more sophisticated in this issue...

P.S.: *IMPORTANT* We've first reports overhere in Germany, (SSDs with/out Sandforce causing BSODs and hanging systems) based on a new specification release of Intel, that the last B3-Stepping scandal seems to be not over yet. This linked article describes that Intel urgently recommends to use the latest Mobo BIOS version when you've combined sandy bridge with SSD usage (like me). Some errors in the Intels Management Engine seems to cause problems and also forget about hot plugging the SSD it's said.

Hey Guys,

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am not sure if I have an issue here or not. I just setup my Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z and when I boot and enter into the BIOS, I am seeing CPU temperatures of 80C!

When I boot into Windows 7 and look at the temperatures in CoreTemp, I see temp readings of 40C at idle.

In AI Suite in Windows, the CPU shows a temp of 32C. Do I have a faulty sensor on the motherboard?

I am currently running the stock cooler that came with the Intel 2600K.

Does that show every time you go into the BIOS? If it does, I would say reseat the cooler. But since it is the stock cooler, you probably don't have any thermal paste. 32C at idle sounds pretty accurate to me. 40C is a bit high I would say but not out of the realm of possibility. Does your case have good airflow?

Couple more questions:

- Do we install the Intel HD Graphics drivers or ATI Catalyst (or NVIDIA ForceWare) first?



- Do we need to install the Realtek HD Audio drivers before installing the X-Fi audio drivers?

When I did a fresh install of Win7 Ultimate x64 SP1, the audio was already working w/o having to install the Realtek HD Audio drivers.



- Which ASMedia USB3.0 chipset do we have? 1041, 1042, or 1051? I ask this because there are firmware updates already for the ASMedia 1041 and 1042 USB3.0 chipsets:

The max clearance for the Vulcan is a 165mm heatsink according to the website. The SA is 160mm tall.
It should fit but you will not have room to fit that giant 200mm side fan in.

What's the best cpu cooler (HSF) that can fit under the height of 135mm?

I just bought the Fractal Design Core 1000 case to go along with my gene-z and 135mm is the max height for the cpu cooler.

Thanks in advance for your input.
