x79 is the newest chipset for lga 2011 socket. Sandy Bridge-E. Think it'll support Ivy Bridge-E when it comes out too.

Have been having a new issue TT
1. I enable virtu MVP in the bios(under system agents.)
2. I can not post, BUT I can get in bios, and while in the bios it does say the iGPU is enabled and is running at 850mhz. But I can not get past the boot logo, period. I have tried re-flashing my bios and am on 1408, still the issues persists.

I was comparing the Maximus boards on the Asus site, and it seems that the Extreme V has the most features.. but it only has Realtek HD audio, while the others have "SupremeFX IV", which sounds like it's a lot better than Realtek audio to me? why does it have worse audio? should I go for the Formula? Actually, I would have anyway, but I read that the barbs on the heatsinks can't be replaced and aren't just standard G1/4" thread fittings, which seems really dumb to me. does anyone know exactly what size they are and if there's any kind of "adapter" that might be able to change them to G1/4? or somehow fit 1/2ID 1/4OD tubing to it?

Gene has realtek audio too but it has fancy name so don't be fooled by that. formula can have some some addon card or box I think. If you care about audio and realtek is not good enough for you buy real sound card

I'm thinking of getting the Formula with ThunderFX, I just have a few questions about it.

1. USB sound card, is it actually any good compared to a PCI-E sound card? "USB" just makes it sound kind of crappy to me? am I wrong?

2. Does it make the on-board SupremeFX IV integrated sound obsolete, or does it work in conjunction with it? Is it better than the on-board SupremeFX IV if it does make it obsolete? (I would hope so?)

3. When using the ThunderFX, does it require / benefit from using a USB 3.0 port or is a 2.0 port enough?

4. It seems like everything I read about the ThunderFX talks about using headphones with it, is it not meant to be used for plugging your speakers in, and then when you decide to switch to headphones/mic for gaming, swap the cables? Or is the idea to use the on-board SupremeFX IV with your speakers, and the ThunderFX for your headphones?

5. Is there a replacement waterblock for the Fusion Thermo block that has G1/4" threads? The entire rest of my system uses G1/4" threads with 1/2" ID tubing and compression fittings, I can use the Fusion Thermo block as it is with a fitting reducer like this, but that would be so much more hassle.

6. What is the best RAM I should pick up for this board? I will be getting an Intel Core i7 3770K (Ivy Bridge) CPU with it if that helps, I will be watercooling and overclocking.

Thanks in advance and +reps.

1) IMHO (naturally depending on the actual 'card' - DAC/Processor is better description) a USB solution will almost always be in every way superior to a PCI/PCIe sound card. For referrence here is mine. Way overkill for 'soundcard' - but I assure you it sounds every bit as good as a $2K CD player provided your files are lossless and of adequate bitrate. Works great for games too. biggrin.gif

2) I believe the ThunderFX solution is in conjunction with the SupremeFX - but I could be wrong about that - it seems similar to the breakout boxes Creative uses - but they don't have much in the way of diagrams, specs, or pictures of the back, etc. From the wording on the Asus site it seems like more of a dedicated headphone amp for the SupremeFX to feed - but I could be wrong on that. wink.gif

3) A USB 2.0 port is capable of many, many times the necessary bandwidth for audio! Remember that even with a FLAC of a very complex piece of music you're usually talking about less than 1 megabit per second - usually somewhere around 600-900kbps. So even USB 1.0 is around 10X faster than necessary for audio. USB 2 is well over 400X faster than necessary. biggrin.gif

4) See #2

5) I know EK has one, but I also believe there are a couple of other companies that have one - I think I've seen a MIPS block around this site somewhere.

6) Seems like all the cool kids are using these cheap azz Samsung sticks... they're supposed to be unreal in the OC department. Dominators or Vengeance sticks are great for decent OC coupled with great looks (IMO at least) but if you're purely looking for numbers... get the Sammies.

There are lots of other options as far as RAM is concerned... you should check the appropriate forum for more info and experts. wink.gif

Thanks for the response. I could use some definitive clarification on #2 from somebody though, and more opinions on #6, but thanks for the rest.

on # 2, from what I understand its an independent solution as you can use it on a console too.

If you plan to water cool the ram, the easiest to do is the dominator and thats what I have. Also G Skill has great ocable sticks too.

I get it, so really you would use your speakers with the on-board sound, and headset with the ThunderFX thing.

No plans to watercool the ram, just want some good solid overclockable sticks, those samsung ones above look a bit too ghetto, gotta have some nice looking heatsinks on them, what G.Skills do I want exactly? I want to fill all four slots up on the mobo.
