I did enable the ASMEDIA smart charging and it was working along with USB. I disabled it and nothing happened. I checked hard wire and it was connected securely.
ok post back on your progress.. I am interested in this one.

latest bios here just in case you had not seen it:thumb:

Hi All,

purchased my z77 board a few weeks ago. Trying to build a monster of a machine. I want to go with watercooling but trying to figure out all the components. Below are the specs I intend to purchases; however need some help with the water cooling CPU block.

Case:
CaseLabs M10 (WHITE) with the base (where my radiator, pump, and reservoir will be setup in.

Mobo:
Sabertooth z77 (purchased)

CPU:
SandyBridge Intel Core i7-2700K Sandy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics

Graphics:
EVGA GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature (x2) SLI

I was looking at the XSPC or the Swifttech CPU blocks and water pump but never used any of these before so was trying to feel out everyone comments which is better, experience
Also was looking at watercooling RAM but i've read mixed review. RAM watercooled does not really effect anything, etc... Not sure to wing it with the watercooled RAM if so has anyone ever picked on over the other? which brand? etc...

I have been building a loop for about a month now ..reading a ton of reviews and asking questions on everything ..finally ordered today.. so if you are between the xspc and the swifttech hd .. tons of guys buy the raystorm because of cost to performance ratio is quite good thats the acetal top version. And the raystorm is close to the Swifttech performance so it will boil down to which one looks better to you.
Great Review herehttp://skinneelabs.com/2011-cpu-block-review-compilation/

I personally went with the DT sniper for flowrate and looks. Plus the guy that makes them is on this site.http://www.overclock.net/t/1268070/dt-sniper-waterblock

Watercooling ram is a waste of time IMO. It just doesn't get that hot. But if you want to then by all means.
price does not justify the performance gain.

@ Chillie,

I've tried clearing the CMOS already, also setting the Prime VGA to IGPU, which resulted in a booting system, but no display.
Unfortunately I'm unable to connect the monitor through HDMI as my monitor doesn't support it.
But it clearly doesn't work with DVI...

I think I'm gonna have a chat with ASUS about this.. see what they have to say...
Still hoping it's a simple setting issue though....rolleyes.gif

I ran into a very similar issue. Honestly to me it sounds like you have a faulty board or something along those lines. I know it's an annoying process with all the restarts and bios runs. But trust me when u get this mobo running its worth trouble! biggrin.gif

I got my Sabertooth Z77 a week ago, since my old P8P67 has passed away.
I'm still having my Core i7 2600k and G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 1.25v
At first, after building the system, I turner on the comp and everything seemed to be fine so I started to install all drivers for the new mobo.
After a few reboots needed by driver installation, the computer started to randomly freeze.
I decided to run prime95 to test system stability and I got an instant freeze and after turning off and on again, the system won't post anymore, having the cpu red led on.
I thought the cpu was damaged so I got a G530 and after installing it I started to get dram red led and I had to move the 2 dimms to B1 and B2, no other combination would let the computer post.
Today I updated the bios with the 1403 version and for my surprise, dualchannel is working perfectly now, so I decided to give it a second try to my 2600k with the new bios and the computer posted! and I made it to the windows desktop, but only for 10 minutes till it got freeze and never posted again having the red cpu led on.
Btw, my 2600k was tested in a different mobo and it's working.
Could it be that 2600k + SB z77 + F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 is a bad combination?
Any help is welcomed and sorry for my bad english + the text wall smile.gif

Alright, I'm back with news:
It turned out that the problem was the processor (the P8P67 carried the 2600k with it...), and yesterday I got a new one through rma.
However, the problem with the dual channel not working was only fixed after a bios update with the 1403 version.
Now everything is working like a charm, except for this:
There is no way I can make the IGP to work after installing the intel drivers.
If I set IGP as main graphics, I can see tuf logo and the windows logo, then the screen turns off but the computer is still working.
If I uninstall IGP drivers, then I can get into windows without problems, but after installing drivers and restarting the computer, all I get is black screen.
Anyone having similar problems?

Actually setting that only determines the primary display, "iGPU Multi monitor" will enable/disable the option.
