Slot4: gtx 680 dc2t @ plx chip -> pci express 3.0 x8

Would it work? And are the lanes theory correct?

Edit: Should be slot 4 instead of slot 3, my mistake

Well using a gtx 680 dc2t on the first slot which is running on PCI Express 2.0 (SB cpu) for me with x16 and in the 4th slot (according to the manual it's x8). What would happen with those lanes?

A) Lanes from the cpu pcix controller are going to be shared into x8 x8 at 2.0
B) 1st slot running at 2.0 x16 and 4th slot running at 3.0 x8 -> which runs from plx chip

Option B would suit me lovely so I basically don't even need an IB chip..

Actually, I have that problem all the time - and on multiple motherboards... not just my MVE (actually I'm not sure it's happened yet to me on my MVE wink.gif ) but it seems that there has either been a long standing issue with Intel's USB controllers and windows drivers, or it's all Microsoft's fault... I know which Intel would likely say... and probably what Microsoft would too.

One thing I've found that helps (though not necessarily with latencies) is to move a chunk of the affected I/O - preferably the slower speed devices - over to an external USB hub... at least in all but one of the cases where I've had issues that solved my problem. The interesting thing is that I've found if I have USB3 ports that I don't ever have the problem with devices plugged into those ports... only in the USB2 ports. Kinda silly to have a BT dongle plugged into a USB3 port - but on my work PC that's the only way I can boot into windows and have a mouse and keyboard every time... otherwise at least half the time I have to walk around my desk to unplug-replug the BT stick before they will work. frown.gif

HELP WITH SOUND BLASTER XF-i UTILITY _ WINDOWS 8 64 BIT

Just got my build completed (described here. Everything is great BUT, I can't get 5.1 PCM audio out of my optical connection from my Maximus V Gene.

Dolby Digital audio source will play 5.1 and light up on my AVR just fine - BUT when attempting any PCM multi-channel (like PC games) ONLY 2 Channel stereo sound gets sent to my receiver. My understanding is that this is what the included SoundBlaster X-Fi Utility is for. I don't understand why it's needed (as my other systems output multi-channel just fine without an additional utility rolleyes.gif

I first installed the included Realtek audio driver from motherboard CD, then the included SoundBlaster X-Fi Utility suite of applications. I confirmed on-line registration. My GTX680 is set to turn off audio (and disable the audio driver) so ONLY the Realtek driver is loaded and outputting audio via the optical output. (BTW - the GTX680 audio via HDMI to my receiver works without issue as it should) . My problem is getting 5.1 multi-channel through optical working. After that didn't work I found this thread which seems to describe my issue. So, I UN-installed everything - installed the Realtek 2.70 HD audio driver and then SB X-Fi Utility again. SAME THING - NO 5.1 - ONLY 2 channel stereo. So, Uninstalled everything again - (and reverted back to a good clean system restore point) Downloaded the realtek drivers and the latest SB X-Fi from ASUS motherboard downloads site here. Confirmed that it was the same version on my CD (Realtek_Audio_V51006699_6016699_XPWin7_8 and SB_XFi_V10401_Win7_8 -- dated 09-26-2012). Installed and still the same issue.

I have changed sample rates in the windows sound control panel, set the realtek audio as default, disabled all others (only the GTX680 output via HDMI) BUT no go. I am missing the audio icon in SoundBlasters X-Fi Utility:



I have THX Studio set to surround:



Versions:



I think the problem is related to the fact that I can NOT configure speakers (grayed out) in the windows sound control panel for the realtek optical. Only gives me options to change bit & sample rates (16bit 48000Hz) This works fine when playing sound from the GTX680 via HDMI (but not the optical port). I had a lengthy chat session with an ASUS tech & he just suggested to install the driver and utility from the ASUS site - BUT could not confirm these were in fact working under Windows 8 64 bit (although the realtek driver says it's supported - SB may not be) I also posted here and no answer was given.

So... Sorry for long post ... I anyone running this great board under Windows 8 64 bit and having a successful install of the realtek drivers and SB X-Fi Utility outputting optical multi-channel sound?
