Will be sending my Maximus V Gene back to Amazon tomorrow, due to random shutdowns. Rest of hardware was tested and ran fine with another board.
Thanks to Amazon: The board was in use for 3 weeks and now the error showed up. Mailed the support and they'll take it back and I'll get my money back. Just pure awesomeness! thumb.gif

Now I ordered a Sabertooth Z77 to go in my Corsair 650D ... I think it'll look very nice wubsmiley.gif

New overclock setting. Today I was readig through some posts and found that with the IB you need to downclock to overclock. Raising voltages is all good and stuff but seems figuring out where your negative offset is is the way to go. So, today I decided to try some things out..my old setting was Voltage off set +/.12 I belive..that seemed to bring my voltages up to 1.35-6 on load and temps in the high 70s..granted those are, from my understanding accebtable temps, but AI Suite kept giving me high temp warnings..I didn't like that much. so I raised my bus to 104.00,lowered ratio to 43, and set my offset to +/0.050. On full load, 10 passes of INTELBURNTEST, no warnings and temps in high 60s to mid 70s on varying cores. Running OCCT CPU:OCCT temps ranged from 55-65 on varying cores and only reached 1.26v max core voltage.thumb.gifsmile.gif

Anyone using G.skill Trident X RAM with this mobo and IB? Has it worked well? I've heard it'll go up to 2400 but you have to set it in bios first?
post #765 of 6915

Does the speed of the ram really help alot?

 

I have Corsair rams which have 1600mhz speed.

 

Should I be looking for something better?

Just about any CPU cooler will fit. If you're not overclocking, you could just passive cool it without a fan.
Silver arrow and D14 are popular choices for high end air cooling. H100 for closed loop water. Hyper 212 Evo for cheap and quiet but not as cool of a solution.

Picked up an H100 for my Sabertooth X58/980X PC to replace the H80. The H100 cools better and is quieter. It doesn't fit in my Corsair 600T case as a pusher as depicted by the instructions. The fan shrouds hit the top of the MoBo and the DIMM tabs. Had to mount the fans on top of the case as pullers. Ended up being an easier install using half of the screws. The H100 fans sound like a jet engine on boot, but quiets down after boot. Ran Prime 95 on 6 cores/12 threads, with VMWare running a large compile on 8 threads, Youtube 1080P trailer, James River Media Center 17 playing 16/44 audio, Task Manager, Resource Manager and Real Temps. The audio did not glitch once, but the YouTube video froze a couple of times. WindozeTask Mgr showed all threads @ 100% and Real Temp GT showed a max of 65 degrees C with the H100 on low speed. Mostly it was hovering in the upper 50's with all 12 threads pegged out a 100% with all of these tasks running. The H100 will be a nice addition to the X58 development sever during the work days to cut down on the ambient noise.

Also picked up a quiet 40mm fan to replace the 30mm Thermal Armor fan today. It is quieter, now need to find a quieter 30mm fan to replace the other Thermal Armor fan. My old ThermalTake case won't house the H100 without some significant mods. The Silver Arrow may have problems with my DIMM's heat syncs and I would have to bump out the door of the case to get it to fit. Time for some measurements and thought. The second Sabertooth Z77 will have a new case, so I think any of the solutions would work with the new case.

I will have to take some measurements to see if I can get either the Silver Arrow or the D14 to fit in the old ThermalTake case.

Are there any problems with cracking MoBo's with such large heat syncs in a vertical tower installation ??? Does anyone strap them to the top of the case to help support the weight ?

Thanks,
Tim

I don't know why people use Virtu MVP. It's bugged and a gimmick. Witcher 2 still crashes with it and apart from falsifying Heaven scores it's good for nothing.

Virtu MVP does work very well, and not a gimmick. You need to adjust settings within game and inside MVP to work.
Not all games will benefit.

I think you are fine with 1600. Some mobos actually perform better with 1600. Atleast the AMD mobos do. Also, it seems a lot of hardware review sites use 1600mhz ram in thier test set ups, so I think you are good.

This is a stretch but I have a P8Z77-V Deluxe mobo, I know our mobos share similar BIOS.

When I run the GPU in the second PCIe slot it runs at 3.0 8x but the top slot is 3.0 16x, Newegg says both are x16 slots.

The GPU is stable in the x8 second slot but not in the x16 first slot... but it does run so the slot isn't completely dead. Is there a setting I could try messing with or anything to troubleshoot the issue? It literally is rock solid in the second slot but not in the first.
