Preview - Asrock 990FX Fatal1ty 990FX Professional - Page 6

post #51 of 416
I have been using this board for about a week. How can I help? I resolved the issue where onboard audio wouldn't work with a PCI sound card installed, but the slow boot issue still happens. It's annoying, but it doesn't affect the system once it's booted. ASRock support hasn't been any help, but I suspect a future BIOS fix will resolve it. This board overclocks better than my previous Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5. Cheers.

slow boot issue
Some get this from certain attached USB devices so got to eliminate them one by one to narrow it down.

I'll give that a shot. My Steelseries Xai mouse actually adds a few seconds to the Windows/Linux loading times. However, I'm not sure that's the problem in this case because the waiting occurs as soon as the machine posts, before drives are detected. It's right about the time I would expect a memory check to be performed. Once the waiting is over, they the AHCI ROM is loaded and drives are detected followed by the OS and drivers being loaded.

EDIT: I should also mention that I did not have this problem with my previous motherboard using the same USB devices. The initial waiting lasts about 2 minutes so it is significant.

Hi klaxian,

Can you measure the distance between the CPU and the first DIMM socket?

Thank you in advance. smile.gif

I am... contemplating, maybe getting this Board...

I like the PCI-E slot configurations as they are laid out much better on this board then on any other 990FX that I've seen!

However, now I know that the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD has been discussed as to whether it would fit in the top slot... and it was determined that perhaps it would not and the slot would be better for shorter cards.

Therefore, what about that Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional? This card is a bit shorter then the HD, I believe... and it is because of this Card, that I am very picky about having a PCI-e slot in a convenient location and still have the option of running xFire in the future!

Also, which is the primary PCI-e slot for the Video Card? If I only use one video card, for now, which slot would it be required to go into, and would any of the other slots require a raiser card? My current 890GX requires that I put my Vid Card in the bottom PCIe-x16 slot, and stick a raiser card into the top slot... not that, such would be much of a huge problem, but just curious!

Also, all those "Fatal1ty" logos all over the heat sinks, can those be removed at all, or are that a permanent fixture on the Board? I think this Board would look 10 times more beautiful without them! LOL

Lastly... from what it looks like on the picture on Newegg, zooming in, on the Board...

This Board has FIVE, fan connections? CPUfan1, CPUfan2, ChaFan1, ChaFan2, PwrFan1

Is that accurate? That is fricking awesome! So like, if one had a Water Loop, with two fans on their Rad, they could put both those on the two CPU Fan headers, and the Pump on the PwrFan?

Is that accurate?

I will try to help answer your questions.

I run two nvidia GTX 480s in SLI. I have a Xonar DG sound card in the PCI slot between the two video cards and it works fine there.

The first PCI-E slot is the primary one and you will want to put your first video card there.

The Fatal1ty logos cannot be removed. They are built in to the heat sinks.

Yes, there are 5 fan headers!

Is this possible 10+ FPS over 990FXA-UD7

It's possible depending on the design of the motherboard and the components used. However, I suspect that something wasn't tested properly. I am only noticing a marginal improvement in FPS over my old GA-890FX-UD5 board so take those results with a grain of salt.

Hey, I used to own the GA-890FX-UD5 mobo too but traded if off cos the BIOS had intermittent issues with recognising keyboard input even with my PS/2 kb. Googled around and found keyboard issues had been a long standing problem with GA mobos... gave up on the mobo after waiting and trying a few BIOS updates without resolution.

No such silly kb nonsenes on the Asrock 990FX Fatal1ty mobo, it just works great! cheers.gif

I suppose no slow boot for you Clipper? Like klaxian?
Cause that's the main thing preventing me from buying this board is if that's a defect or just case-specific on klaxian.
