ok so the fans are actually 35mm not 40mm so you can fit one 40mm with the supplied bracket. So tell me if this is correct think i did it correctly regarding the bios update. I downloaded the brenamer file and i put it in the same folder as the downloaded sabertooth bios update i then ran the renamer file and it extracted [unzipped] the bios file it then opened a command prompt window showing the bios file [prior re-naming] it said to hit any key which i did, now when i look in the extracted bios file folder there is now a file called Z77ST.CAP it is 8194kb i assume thats its done and i can now load that in the root of a fat.32 formatted usbdrive correct?

Thanks thumb.gif

Ok i have started to assemble the pc and hit another snag while putting the backplate of the corsair h100 on it refuses to tighten onto the mobo itself so ts slightly loose [about 1mm or less] seems like the pins that come through the motherboard from the backplate protrude above the surface of the board so that when i tighten the cpu cooler retention bolts they bottom out on the backplate pins..is this perfectly normal ? all my other coolers backplates tighten up snug to the board! Anyone else fit this cooler had issues please let me know if this is ok or not

cheers thumb.gif

Maybe a silly question, but is it possible to make it so some usb ports are always powered on even when the computer is off? I seem to be having some troubles trying to figure out how to do so.

there's an option for USB charging, via the AI suite II bro.
I THINK that's what you want right?


Another question for y'all:
Anyone know more about Lucid MVP?
The feature that comes with the Z77?

Would like to know if that's any good at all?
I've disabled it, and don't use it at all - but just curious.

I see it more of an on-board graphics thing, rather than something I would need alongside my GTX660ti - am I wrong?

It will switch between integrated and your dedicated card depending on how you're using your pc, which saves energy. I don't have a dedicated GPU installed right now so I can't comment on how seamless it is.  It also does "virtual vsync" (vsync enabled in-game, no 60fps cap (120fps instead), no screen tearing is what they claim). Plus any rendering programs that can make use of it will render lots faster. That link has a demo video on it as well.

yeah i've seen all the marketing - just want to know about users really

Rendering wise - the i7 and ram and gtx660ti play a huge role in speed biggrin.gif
