I have to switch it back to AHCI to get it to boot. It works just fine after I do that.. but from reading the manual (page 4-35) and watching this old video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGD48ihLQCI I figured it should be able to be switched over into false raid mode while ISRT is activated

I recently had to RMA my Z77 board, but I stupidly left both fans mounted.
When I got my new board, I got a new pair of fans but not a new set a screws.

Can anyone tell me the measurements for the "short fan screws" and the "long fan screws"?
If possible, where I can purchase them online?

Thanks.

LOL, so many posts about the Assist fans. These little buggers are a pain in the butt for the S-tooth owners.
Hey buddah I only used my SB assist fan. I have some extra screws. If you live in US48 I can mail em to you, or just ask ASUS to give you back your screws.

Agree with you about the fans, lol, they do seem to be causing quite the stink here. I really have had no trouble with mine at all.

Thanks for the offer smile.gif Though I live in Canada frown.gif

I actually like the fans. They are audible (when I had them) at really high rpms, but with FanXpert, its easy to keep them quiet.
With my experience, it keeps the board a bit cooler. Though I just rather have some air circulating under the armour.

I stayed at 4.8...Try bumping the LLC to Extreme and disableing the option that lowers voltage and clock ..I can't remember what its called. Apologies.

Yeah i don't think ill be hitting 5.0 without a custom loop honestly. I'm pretty sure the processor can handle it. The temps just aren't acceptable. On IBT it spikes to the high 80's and can even hit the 90's. It doesn't crash. But those temps are just not acceptable.

I am aware that IBT stresses much more than Prime does by about 10-15c and the chances of seeing that kind of stress while playing a modern day game are pretty slim. Still i feel like a WC loop would be the way to go. I just don't know much about them. So if anyone can point me in the right direction for the specifics of what to buy to setup a loop for the CPU block, be much appreciated!
post #807 of 6915
my WC loop- 1 Swiftech Apogee HD, 10ft Tygon Black 1/2id tubing, Swiftech MCP655 pump, Swiftech 240mm and 120mm rad, DangerDen Res, and Primochill fluid. my fans on the 240rad are the ones that came on my H100, they are nice..then on my 120 I have a coolMaster fan. I'll Post pics later

Try using Real Temp GT for the core temps.

I have noticed that Thermal Radar's temps under load are considerably less that what the individual Real Temp cores show.

I have read that Thermal Radar does not show the actual core temps, but maybe a socket temp. Can anyone verify this ???
post #809 of 6915
Im gettings these VCore Warnings when im running Prime95 in blend 5 hours in. Im not getting any errors from Prime but i got a pop-up from asus warning of VCore Temps. Im looking at the Thermal radar and my Vcore is 48Degrees and Vcore(Back) is 46Degrees. Readings from Core-Temp indicates my max temps are 70,73,74, and 77.
post #810 of 6915
I tryed to install some corsair ram and they weren't compatible they were vengeance as well. Try get them tested where you buy it from before bringing it home if the store does that. The place i deal with tested my cpu ram and motherboard for free good thing too.
