Hi guys, hopefully someone can help
Built my sys a month ago an everythin workin fine up till 2 days ago. Got home, turned on my UPS (Sankek Blazer 1000w) and pushed my power button. Cue fizzling sound and dark smoke filling my case! Not good. Figured it had to be PSU so brought it back and demanded a new one. Being in Vietnam they gave me what looked like a recently repaired one and said it was new!! Not being able to argue I took it cos I at least wanted to test my sys to make sure nothing else was fried...
Got home, plugged in the mobo power an 24 pin connector and my graphics card. Said a little prayer and powered up. POST-ed fine, except, no keyboard was detected. Got to windows log-on and my mouse wouldn work either (My keyboard and mouse are USB). Plugged em out an into a diff plug but no go. I have put in the on-board USB 3 adapter so I tried that, and it worked.... So my 4 USB ports on the back of the MOBO, and the 2 on the top-front of my case are not working (The top-two might not be powered yet as i didn plug everythin in to my psu yet, some fans an maybe power for the top controllers,, not sure)...
Went in to bios an legacy usb is enabled, tried disabling, saving, enabling, but no go,,,,
Any help???

I have an update on my Crysis 2 performance. When I Alt+Tab to the desktop and then go back into the game, my performance ends up being much better - that is, much closer to what I was expecting!

So, whew. smile.gif

Hey guys, I'm looking at making the jump to SB. I'll probably be rocking the 2600K. After going Gigabyte for years, I'll be jumping on board the Asus train. There are 4 motherboards listed on the front page of this thread. I'm trying to figure out what the difference between the 4 of them is, and which one would be the best one for me to buy. Thanks for all your help guys!

As far as overclocking ability goes, they're all the same except for the Deluxe. The Deluxe is for more extreme overclocking, such as when using sub-zero cooling like Liquid Nitrogen, or Dry Ice. Other than that, it really boils down to what features you need (like connectivity or something).

They're such great boards that it's almost impossible to go wrong. You are right to jump on board the ASUS train, Gigabyte and MSI have nothing to say. Even Asrock has done a better job than them. Go with whatever fits your budget, requirements and is available.

A, I have similar problem with PS/2 keyboard, witch is not working, if I connect keyboard to PS/2 port. I must use PS/2 to USB hub so my keyboards is working.
Try connect some other device to that USB port, like Usb pen, GSM,.. and you will se, if it's the same.

Hi.

I'm thinking of getting myself a Asus P8Z68-V Pro for my new PC. With that I was thinking of a Noctua NH-U9B SE2 as a CPU-cooler. However I'm a bit concerned that the CPU-cooler will cover one for the memory-slots. Does anyone have a experience of that cooler on that motherboard?

EDIT: I read in another forum that the motherboard takes around 16sec before BIOS shows up on the screen after boot. Is the solution metioned on the first page of this thread as the cool-boot?

He may have the box, haven't asked him.

Back in 1998 when PII 300's I hunted for the right batch numbers/stepping, production week and where it was made. An example - Costa Rica Week 37 SL2W8 had the same L2 Cache (Not on the Core. Slot1 system. Running on half the speed of the core) as the PII 450, and could often overclock to 504MHz.

btw: Have not been able to make this 2600K 12 hours + Blend stable at 5GHz yet. I'm guessing I will have to manipulate the CPU PLL Voltage. I know it gets tricky at these speeds.
