Nice build! Noticed you are getting a 670 gtx... I would highly recommend the asus directcu2 670... Great card. Just make sure it's NOT the top version, the factory over clock has been very unstable and it looks like the chips were not actually binned higher. And get the latest software on their site!
Love the card... 2 fans and real over clocking potential. My clocks were 7200 ram and 1100 gpu without changing voltages. Future proof.

The later of the two profiles is the one you want to use as it is the proper xmp profile...IMO they should remove the 2401 cause it does not work at all (atleast for me.) Even tho it says 2399 it reports as 2400 here is a shot from cpu-z showing the xmp profile being used and 2400 speeds:
456
i have a 3770k, corsair H100, plus that ram and it works fine in xmp mode. Who you should be upset with is ASUS/yourself for not trying the 2399 xmp profile which is the recommended one. Same with the user above....these ram work just fine with xmp.

Thanks for the reply.... I think i gave that second XMP profile a try here one time without luck, but I'm not 100% sure....I still got the G.Skill 16 gig DDR3-2400 Trident X Kit here...going to try those again with that second profile and will update everyone my results....

yes just make sure you use the 2399 xmp profile and not the 2401...sounds like you need to up the volts for the 2401 which i prefer not to. The 2399 xmp profile definatly works tho without any modification atleast for me with that ram, havent had one issue, id make sure you are on the latest bios as well should be 1206 i believe.

I recently purchased one of these mother boards and have a question about hooking up two video cards. I have two Asus HD 7750 video cards currently in slots 1 and 2 (top and middle of mobo). I am only able to get video out of the video card in slot two. The video cards do not have sli connectors and i was just wondering how if possible i can get both of these cards to work.

Specs:

Sabertooth Z77- Motherboard
Asus HD 7750 x 2 - Video Cards
Crucial 4 gb x 2 - Ram
Intel Core i7 2600k 3.4ghz - Sandy Bridge Processor
120 GB OCZ SSD
Zalman 135mm long life bearing CPU Cooler
Cool Master Gladiator 600 Case
Antec HCG 750 psu
Win 7 Professional 64bit

Hi everybody.
I know I'm new here and asking for help in your very first post is usually frowned upon in the forums where I normally reside but Asus don't seem to want to respond to the ten second question I posed and to be honest, talking to other owners is probably a much better idea anyway.

I've just bought a load of new pc kit as a congratulations to myself for giving up smoking and as I've always had Asus boards since 2003ish I thought I'd splash on one of their top ones. So, with almost everything mounted in the case, I have a really stupid question before I boot it all up for the first time. There is what looks like that protective plastic film stuff over the chipset or Southbridge (whichever the one stamped with the Asus logo is) and my brain is saying 'remove it, it'll melt' but I wanted to know if you are supposed to. The manual/google has offered me no help so far.

As I said, stupid question but this is my first ever build from scratch rather than buying a Mobo-cpu bundle.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for that. I literally cannot wait to get this beast up and running and try my hand at pushing 4ghz+ from the Ivy. smile.gif
