Is it worth it to change from P67 Pro to Maximus Gene-Z? I don't need SLI/CF, and I'll sell Audigy 4 as there's some kind of X-Fi in this m-ATX board.

If you switch it off, there will be no more fan speed regulation. You could put CPU Fan Speed Low Limit to ignore, but then there will be no warning if your fan is actually not spinning.

I would not change. The Sound Card on the GENE-Z is a normal Realtek sound chip with a nice X-Fi sticker. This is a Software driven solution to enable eax effects etc., but the audio quality is not better than with any common onboard sound chip.

If you need one of the Z68 features (SSD caching and lucid virtu igp virtualization) but do not care about the m-atx form factor I would rather buy a P8Z68 series board. If you need an m-atx board, the GENE-Z is not a wrong choice.

Does anyone know of an extension for the usb 3.0 box that comes with the board? I want an extension because the cable on it i just two short for my case. It connects into the port correctly but there isn't enough header to run it behind the wall. Seeing as I spent almost 1000 on my system, it irks me that a near 10/10 cable managed build is being held back by a stupid 20 dollar front usb box.

A few weeks ago, these settings were rock-solid stable in Prime95's Blend test with the exception of the VCCIO being at 1.15625V. However, another difference is that I have Prime95's priority set to 7 (Prime95's default is 1). So either I really do need a VCCIO of 1.15625V, or maybe this is because I'm using 7 instead of 1. Whatever the case is, I am using 1.15625V now and I'll be starting a 12-hour test in a few hours. If it fails again, then I'll change Prime95's priority back to 1 and test again. Failing that, I don't know what I'll do because the VCCIO is the only other variable right now.

However, I'm still having fun. smile.gif

I have the P8Z68-V Pro MOBO, and am trying to connect my CoolerMaster Silent Pro M Power connector to the EATX 12v 8pin connector. The Power Supply provides two sets of double 4 pin connectors(female), but they won't reach the EATX 12v connector on the MOBO.
I don't see an extension that will fit...what do I use?

Are you trying to route the cable behind the motherboard?

Yes, straight line to EATX and the dual 4 pin PS will fit, but that doesn't seem correct. Behind MOBO and it won't reach, so need an extension?

If you can buy from FrozenCPU, then I recommend this 12" extension cable:

^ what twocables said is probably your best option. Now how are you routing the cable? Start behind the mobo tray, and then go through the hole behind the processor, and then over the motherboard and into the plug? Did you try flipping the PSU so the side that the cables come out is agaist the motherboard tray?
