Asus Z9PE-D8 Owner's thread - Page 229

post #2281 of 2477
Yea, the Q-code is sometimes confusing. You'd think it wouldn't show anything if everything was okay. I have a P9X79-E WS board as well, it displays 'AA' I believe when its working okay.

I'm not sure what your local prices would be. For 200 euro, you could get a used GTX 960 or GTX 770 or on the AMD side you can R9 290 based on what I can find here in the US. Rhino 5 says it just requires a card with OpenGL 2.0 support which is pretty much any modern card.

You can fit 2 NH-D15S on this board? Hard to see in that photo. I am using two Cooler Master 212+ EVOs. I was getting 55C and 70C with the fans set to "Generic", which I guess thats is low or med. My case fans are also controlled by the mobo. I set them to HIGH now, and its come down to 52C on the first and 65C on the second. These temps are on full load on E5-2670s. Small improvement. Not bad for a $30 cooler. I'd be interested in getting slighty bigger heatsinks, but dont want to spend money to find that it won't fit. I am also using 2 R9 280Xs. I can see from the Wam7's photo, the NH-D15 will block the first PCIe slot.

Honestly, it's strange.

I had many errors on Windows 7, it was getting impossible with these MEMORY MANAGEMENT stuff.
I did all I could, changing memory timings, the Voltages of CPU, RAM, etc, changed parts, change many RAMS, ECC, not ECC REG, NOT REG, changed slots PCI for stuff..
I bought a pair of retail 2670 instead of the ES 2680, honestly it didn't change anything.. I had the memory management too.

Since I am on Windows 10, everything is smooth. I just changed the second cooling tool for the 2nd CPU for a NH-D15S, which is very beautiful but also very efficient compared to the watercooling which was reacting erratic.. I am waiting money to buy the second one.
I have the Qcode 22, which looks normal.
I let the computer sleep for overnight then I had Qcode 30. I was starting to ask myself : ***, then it is normal, it's wake up from sleep mode.

Everything looks just right..


ANYWAYS, I have a last question for you.
ts
I actually have a beast, with a Nvidia GTX 285 graphci card.
I do mainly Rhinoceros 5 3D, Vray rendering and Indesign/Photoshop Stuff.

I would like to buy a used graphic card for around 200/300 euros, Which one could you recommend me for that kind of stuff to do ?

Nvidia GTX 690 ?
Nvidia GTX 780 ?


Many thanks !
Mathieu

Mine are actually D14's which is slightly smaller than the D15. It only blocks the first PCI-E slot due to the orientation I have them in. I prefer the fans going from top to bottom rather than front to back. Though if I need the first PCI-E I would just use then front to back. I only have 1 GPU so have plenty slots so can afford to loose the first one.

The temperatures are ridiculously good.though. Like I said with the fans at 50% idle temps 35/36c and full load is just over 50c. Room temp is 24c. Thermal paste is the Noctua's own that comes with the D14.

Ah, ok. I have 1 NH-D14 myself. It was cooling a 4930K on a X79 extreme 6 until I sent that board out for RMA. Played a bit musical cpus, lol! 4930K is now in the P9X79 and the E5-2670 from there is now in the Z9PE. I keep myself busy. Looking for a CPU now to test the RMA board once it comes back. Thinking a 4820K or maybe just another E5-2670 would be cheaper. Don't have a use for the board at the moment. Anyhoo, I was thinking using the D14 and getting another, but didn't know how well it would fit. Thats the reason I got the Extreme 6 in the first place, blocked the PCIe on the GA-X79-UP4 I have.

I am 100% sure that both NH-D15S fit on a Z9PE-D8, for information. it's obvious. You just block the first PCI-E.

It DID exist, it's not where it was when I downloaded the drivers. Have a look... no "Support" any more.

I'm very intrigued now, I'm planning to sell this system but in the meantime I will probably update to win10.

Check out this:

I just installed Windows 10 on mine. Didn't have to download any drivers that I can remember. If there is something missing, I use something like Slimware's SlimDriver Free app to get anything missing. Win 8 and Win 10 are much better at having built-in or finding drivers than Win 7.
