post #1421 of 6915
Hi everyone i have this Mobo for about a week now and after adding some fans i came to the conclusion that the case fan 4 conection on the mobo doesnt work.
Has anyone else had any problems like this or sugestions on how to fix i have tried diferent fans and they all work on other conectors.

It is definitely NOT snowing here.
I am loading the CPU by running Diablo III and MW3 at the same time, using the onboard Intel 4000 GPU. If that's not load I don't know what is...
Highest temp I got was 42C. Now this is an AC room ~70F. I have a ton of fans and a push/pull liquid cooling. Did I just get lucky with this chip?
Also, I assume Ai Suite pulls the CPU temp of the MB sensor just like any other CPU temp monitor would.....why would it be wrong? If it is indeed inaccurate, the my benchmarks have been **** and I could get into to trouble...I will look into this further.
Yeah, if you are measuring with the AIsuite temp sensor... then i never hit above 40 degrees running 4.5 at 1.3 volts lol. Don't trust it as I mentioned before.

I have 6 120mm fans in my case, 3 intake and 3 exhaust along with the h100. My temps aren't bad when considering a 4.5 clock with ivy. The thing that differs from some of you guys is that I need 1.31 volts in order to keep it stable, which I really don't like...

Last night I downloaded 3D Mark and Real Temp. Ran a 3D Mark Test with Real Temp open in the background. The max core temp I got a 4.3GHz was 57C, the average was around 50c.
I think tonight I will bump the voltage up a tiny bit and see if I can get to 4.6GHz.
I am going to get a hold of IBT and OCCT and check them out. Seems like 3D Mark is pretty limited with the demo license. Your certainly right though, I didn't build the rig to get good benchmark scores, I built it to kick butt at MW3 and Diablo III so there is no better test than playing a game for a few hours. Thanks for the good advice.
BTW side question, I have 32GB of 1600MHz DDR3 (Corsair Vengeance), is it worth overclocking?
No, 32g of ram is overkill as it is for the purpose of your build lol, but I don't think your frequency is going to make too much of a diff with your games. What are your graphics?? edit: BTW, reason being is D3 you can pretty much play on a 200$ computer, and although I don't play MW3 on PC, I have heard from friends that it is not too demanding performance-wise compared to something like BF3. -- refer to hurtin4asquirtin's post below--

Just discovered that there is no performance boost from 1600mhz ram to 2400mhz ram, I read it is like 1% increase.
I would be happy with 4.6 too! haha, and depending on what your using your setup for, 1600 is standard without noticeable performance difference for everyday stuff and gaming that isnt super hardcore IMHO.

Matter of preference. The fan expert works fine for me, because my cpu fans run through my h100 so it has the built in controller. My other fans are always silent in my padded case so I can't hear them anyway, therefore I really don't notice the revolution speeds so long as they are appropriate for the situation.

Before I bought the ASRock I was going back and forth between that and an ASUS board. I thought I would take a chance with the ASRock,,,WRONG..... This SaberT rocks:D
I have it up and running, instead of using the ssd as a cache I installed my OS on it and it is a great improvement. Now that I have said HI i do have a question (first of maybe a few)...
I installed AI Suite II. There is no icon to start it. It does not show up in start under asus installed programs,,,,, Neither does it show up in control panel / programs..... But it is in the Programs Files 86x folder on Local disk, where there is no uninstall or app to start AI suite II.......I have tried to install it a few times (New version from asus) but have not been able to uninstall it first....
Help... How do I uninstall it, to reinstall it??? I just dont want to delete it from the programs file do I?? Revo uninstaller wont find it.
Forgive me if has been covered in this forum before..

But if you want to instal it go with the Asus maximus's AISuite.....Doh neglected to read whole post, you treid REVo, nvm...
Are you installing each program individually or using the instal suite and choosing through that. i found installing individually tends to do what you are mentioning.

Thanks Blatsz you are right... when I first installed them I did it individually then I used the installer....

Does anyone know the correct way to get these files off my computer with NO uninstaller!!!

Should I just just erase them from my programs file?? Im not sure how to get the rest of it out of the Reg...

I lost my USB flash disk drive. There is no other way to update the bios with a USB flash disk right?

You can update from the file in Window using AI Suite Asus Update.

You can also flash from within the Bios, itself. Copy the file to your C drive. Rename it Z77ST.rom and in bios go to utilities...and flash from there. Reminder...set the bios to defaults, before you flash...minimizing the potential for errors, etc.

Is it running in your sys tray? AI Suite is buggy, I had several issues but nothing like what you describe.
