hey guys, my start times are under 30 sec with a intel 520 (120gb) ssd drive, shouldve bought the 180gb instead cause space is getting tight, no other HDD attached at the moment, what programs that come with the MVG DVD are you finding useful. right in the middle of doing house reno so havent has the time to realy get tweaking.

I like the fan expert thing. I only use 2 fans at the moment but they let me control them, so thats cool.

ive dabbled in O/C years back in the good old days of AMD thunderbird and intel celeron, my last was a slight overclock on conroe. so lets say im a little rusty.
I realy havent botherd to O/C of late and to be honest im not sure if ill overclock this CPU. So far the performance has been excellent(coming from a E6850dual core).

EDIT; and i love the easy O/C settings, cant be easier than that, but if i do O/C ill still get my hands dirty and tweak something.

They're honestly the same size... the only real difference between both is the connection. The Xonar DG is PCI, and the Xonar DGX is 1x PCIe. Seing the Maximus V Formula has no PCI, I'd just go for the Xonar DGX. IMO it's not worth having an adapter when you can get the same thing it the native connection. You shouldn't have any spacing issues at all. and if you're worried of clearing either the top of your GPU's or the bottom of your GPU's, you'll have the choice to either pout your card in the middle or at the bottom.

Obviously, consider this is just what I think will happen. I'm not saying this from experience with the cards and the motherboard, it's just how I think it'll unfold.

Why not? I'm getting the formula and I have an ASUS Xonar Essense STX waiting for me. The SupremeFX is no doubt better than any onboard sound ever. But it's still not the best quality sound that someone could get. I mean being an audiophile I wouldn't be satisfied tongue.gif and I'm guessing thats why Zk1mpls is getting something else also. Just a bit more on a budget than me tongue.gif

Or i would have to look for another motherboard. Sorry this is my first ever build and i am so confused...

If you absolutely want to stick with a Maximus V board, your best bet is either to return it and switch it to the Xonar Essence STX, or to get a PCI to PCIe adapter. Something like this. Although there is most likely less expensive things out there.

Other than that, you could just change the motherboard. There are boards like the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO which have SLI capabilities and also have PCI slots. It really comes down to all that you require in a motherboard.

Your fan orientation looks wrong on the H100.
