Holy voice from the past. How's it going snakes? remember you from back during the summer when everyone was still trying to figure these boards out. smile.gif

Nice. I'm ordering mine later today.

I'm curious if anyone has used (or tried to use) a Zalman CNPS12X in conjunction with the UD5H. I'm planning on purchasing the UD5H for a Deus Ex-themed build. I haven't settled on a heatsink yet but I liked what I saw of the CNPS12X and it fits the theme relatively well IMO. If someone has used it, I'd be interested in RAM recommendations for use with it - currently looking at the G.Skill Ares 16GB kit (F3-1600C8Q-16GAB). I was originally looking at a Ripjaws X 16GB kit but I figured the heatsinks would be too tall - from what I can tell the Ares kit will fit just fine?

I'm also interested in other heatsink recommendations for this board - I will be going back through and reading more of the thread over the next day or two, but any information is welcomed. Blue and/or black color scheme is preferable.

Um, I got a Z77-D3H and I have a few questions my mobo manual can't answer. I have an external GPU, when I first try to boot, do I plug in my HDMI cable into the mobo or the GPU?

 

Second, I have an SSD and a HDD. I don't want to run Intel SRT so do I plug my SSD into the SATA 3 port and the HDD into the SATA 2 port? or both into the SATA 3 port to get the best performance?

external gpu, also known as a discrete GPU or dGPU, as opposed to an integrated GPU or iGPU, will be what you are going to connect to on first boot. To enable iGPU, go into the bios and select; then you can connect to it and see what it can and can't do.

depends on whether the ssd and/or hdd is sata 2 or 3. plug into the port which is appropriate for the drive (i.e., ssd sata 2 plug into a sata 2 port).

bad to touch the PCB. First though touch somthing else metal around you ti discharge static, then grab your motherboard by the metal part of the I/O panel(the backpanel) like where all the ports are.. Then place it on somthing, a motherboard box is ok.

i think it will fit, but you will need to use low profile memory to be safe.

Ok is it ok to touch the edge? or should I just touch the metal parts?

What are the advantages or iGPU vs dGPU? I heard you can use QuickSync and Lucid on iGPU, while dGPU can't. Is this true? Is it true that if you use iGPU then your discrete GPU will turn off at idle and use the iGPU instead? I prefer that method instead of leaving it on all the time.

If you use iGPU as primary, and let Virtu to switch to dGPU you will have a performance drop. You may also experience bugs.

Quicksync is part of iGPU, so obviously you can't use it without it.

So if I use dGPU then I can't use Virtu or QuickSync? How much of a performance drop are we talking about here?
