The onboard audio sucks, but whatelse can deliver 2000 watts to the CPU?

lol, the same CL audio chip would have made this board perfect imho. You're left w/ adding a pci sound card to avoid loosing lanes when you plug in a pcie sound card.

I missed out on an asrock champion x79. Not the best x79 but id does have a good audio chip. Keeping an eye out for a RIVF too smile.gif

You can always go for a SPDIF or USB sound card.

Also, don't the PCIe X1 slots run off of different lanes than the x16 and x8 slots?

I asked it and it was confirmed the adjacent green slot will turn to 8x. Can't have that w/ my gpu set up biggrin.gif

I ran across a problem with the Intel Series/216 Chipset SATA AHCI controller. Apparently I install these at some point and realized after a bunch of *** moments I realized the problem. I first noticed the problem after running System Mechanics' SSD optimization tool..it would lock up and on reboot I would get: Reboot and select proper boot device or Insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key. I entered the bios and SSD was not detected. After loading optimized defaults and then recognizing the drive I could boot into windows. All would be good until I the SM SD optimization tool again.

Long story short I done these:

Re-flashed the SSD using 5.03 firmware < after uninstall of IDE ATA/ATPI controller the firmware updater recognized the drive
Tried various Bios firmware
Installed newer version of SM from their suggestion.
Uninstalled Intel IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and reinstalled on reboot < this is the problem see below.
Swapped SATA ports\cables

I thought I had fixed the problem by un-installing the Intel IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers but later I re-installed the Intel controller. Boom problem re-appeared.

So does anyone else have a problem with the Intel Series/216 Chipset SATA AHCI controller? I have to use the Standard AHCI 1.0 SATA controller or I have problems

You are talking about the iRST driver, right? What if you install the one from GB's site? What if you try another version(older)

what speeds do you get without the driver installed?

Yes the iRST driver. I have uninstalled the controller and installed from the GB site it still fails. If I install the chipset driver from GB it installs the C216 SATA AHCI controller 1E20 I think that last number was different. But what's weird I am positive that these are the same controllers I had installed without problems until about a month ago.

I am also sure my drives showed SCSI drives with failing controller, now they just show as ATA Device using the standard 1.0 controller

Oh btw speeds are basically the same between the standard and iRST ones.

I would just use the standard ones then. You have the ME drivers installed, right? Do you have any USB devices hooked up?

Yes also ME is also from GB... All the USB devices I have hooked up are the keyboard and mouse. I think I'll just uninstall the iRST program as it looks like it doesn't work without that driver installed...

Thanks Sin for your time!
