Beat you to it. I already posted their yesterday and the no one had an answer there either. The mod suggested that I run a test and see.

Ah, typical asus support then I see.

Well here are the results for the MVF slow mode switch:

left position = Super PI 32M = 7m 13.123 sec
right position = Super PI 32M = 7m 12.948 sec

Well within the margin of variance from one run to the next.

So I tested to see if the PC would boot quicker in one position over the other. I timed it with a stopwatch but it seemed to be the same (if there is a difference, it isn't a noticeable one).

Conclusion = I still don't know which position is "off/normal' and which is "on/enabled"

It doesn't seem to make a differnce. Testing criteria = 3770K @ 4.6G

Maybe with a slower cpu & clock, it might be noticeable.

Actually, I would say with a higher cpu and clock. smile.gif I'm not totally sure what version of 'magic smoke' they've installed that the switch controls - but since it's intended purpose is to eliminate or at least ameliorate the 'cold boot bug' I wouldn't expect to see a significant impact unless you were running well over 5.5GHz on that chip (along with the requisite sub-0C temperatures). It's my guess that - if the switch does anything at all - it simply changes voltages or pathways to something they've found/guessed will reduce cold-boot failures. Most likely without LN2 the stresses on the chip and chipset aren't sufficient to make any difference at all and you are, at most, simply adding a couple of milliseconds to the boot time which you aren't able to determine using your stopwatch. smile.gif

That's probably why there isn't much knowledge even at ASUS about it - unless an actual engineer that worked on the board design is available. I'm sure if you posted on NVidia's forum a question about why a particular capacitor or choke was used in the VRM path you'd be met with similarly useless responses from support. biggrin.gif

So was wondering if maybe you guys could help me solve a dilemma I've been having. I'm thinking of grabbing either a Maximus V Formula or Extreme, but trying to boil down the real difference between the two and if it's actually worth the premium. The main differences I see are the Extreme has is the two x16 PCI ports compared to x8, and the OC Key, am I missing anything obvious?

I think i'll trust the switch and leave it to the right (labeled as off), and assume the manual is wrong, is it likely the manual is mostly a copy/paste of the MVE and that might explain the error?

The Maximus V Extreme has better PCIe spacing for 2-3 graphics cards and lots of room for a dedicated high-end sound card, plus I don't care for the barb look on the VRM sections cooling. You can also run Native PCIe 3.0 x8/x8 without even using the PLX bridge chip!

Has anyone been successful using Intel Lan Driver V1703.0.0? You have to update Intel® 82579V Gigabit Ethernet PHY Network Connection 1st then install driver.

Intel LAN Driver V17.3.0.0 for Windows XP 32bit & XP 64bit & Win7 32bit & Win7 64bit & Win8 32bit & Win8 64bit.(WHQL)
Intel LAN Driver V17.3.0.0 for Windows XP 32bit & XP 64bit & Win7 32bit & Win7 64bit & Win8 32bit & Win8 64bit.(WHQL)

*Note: Please install NVM Update Utility for Intel 82579V Gigabit Ethernet PHY Network Connection first before you update this driver.
The URL of the Utility: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=22026


http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=22026
This utility resolves an issue where during system resume, the Intel® 82579V Gigabit Ethernet PHY Network Connection erroneously reports the device id as an Intel® 82579LM Gigabit Ethernet Controller Network Connection, resulting in a Windows* Code 10 error and loss of network connection.

Not all systems with the Intel 82579V Network connection will see this problem. Systems using Microsoft Windows* 8 are more susceptible to the issue.

If you experience this error, Intel recommends that you update the non-volatile memory for your network connection by downloading and running the NVM Update Utility.

Three versions of the utility are available to support three different operation systems (Windows 32 bit; Windows 64 bit; DOS).
