You need sub 0 temps at a certain point for stability. 5.6 is impossible on regular water cooling.

It's able to handle up to 7.1 but I'm no audiopile. I'd say this though if your speakers cost more then a few hundred bucks then a stand alone card is likely going to serve you well.

If the SupremeFX III is anything like the onboard sound on the Maximus IV Gene-Z it is just software based with an ordinary Realtek audio CODEC and is not an actual Creative sound chip on the board.

For audio, the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z features a software-based X-Fi solution that ASUS refers to as the X-Fi 2 SupremeFX, which utilizes a Realtek ALC889 audio CODEC underneath the metal vanity plate shown in the second picture.

So no the audio solution on the Formula is not going to be better than a quality dedicated sound card.

Add! The board build quality is amazing. This is my first ROG board, but I have been an Asus MB user dating back to northwood days.

450

its going into this:

Add me as well!

Cable management has been improved since this pic was taken, along with a fan controller, so there hardly is any sight of 3pin fan connectors.

Hey Jayyde or anyone else for that matter, is there a big performance gain going from the i7 920 to your X79 setup in all honesty? I have a i7920 myself, should i wait till Ivy Bridge E comes out & wack that in an RE4? Cheers

It's over twice as fast as my 920. So much win


I'm having an issue when overclocking that with certain settings there is no video signal. Anyone else experiencing this?

Iv'e had the exact same issue with my overclocked system this week where my system failed to post video signal (though it was a sandy bridge motherboard but with the same Asus EFI Bios).

I was told that if you leave the TPD switch turned on, which is supposed to "auto" overclock the bus speed of the PCI-Express Slots, then at some point the motherboard overclocks the BCLK to 103 (in my case) instead os standard 100.... and then you can't obtain video signal (no posting of video) because the video card can't handle the overclocked bus speed, depending on the video card/s.

The point is that TPD switch is supposed to be able to auto set itself upon subsequent reboots to fix itself and downclock the BCLK speed to a level that WILL post video, but the reality is somewhat different and you can be stuck with no video at all.

Solution in my case, was to turn the physical TPD switch off which is located on the motherboard below the last PCI-Express Slot, and your system will then post video and boot properly.

The difference is that your PCI-EXpress BCLK Speed will be manually set to 100Mhz, and then if you want to overclock thje bus speed further for BCLK, then you have to do so manually from the BIOS..

But at least this way you can post video every time ;-)

Hope this helps

Cheers

Nick
