Does the Maximus V Gene have the same power management in terms of VRMs, PWMs, components as the Formula and Extreme?

ASUS Maximus V Gene vs MSI Mpower?

Thanks guys!

Here is a simple formula you can use to determine the proper amount of connections need for your application.. The maximum current per metal contact within the connectors are rated at about 5 amps each making the normal "working" range at 2 amps per connector. To convert amps to watts take the amps and times it by the voltage. For example a non-overclocked 3960x is spec'ed at 130w. Using a 4 pin 12v connector gives you only a 96 watt capacity. Going with a 8 pin connector will give you a 192 watt capacity. So the 8 pin connector is the way to go.

With Mikes (Mdzcpa) set-up, MIke runs his computer 7/24 pegged at 5.1 Ghz. At 5.1Ghz his CPU is probably drawing around 300 watts (Citation needed). At a 300 watt CPU draw, I would recommend Mike to use both the 8 pin and 4 pin CPU plug in addition to give him at least a 288 watt capacity rating.


and the Raja@asus have no evidence either so both cant prove, same as me and u if i have the cooling to push my cpu to the limit and check it up then we can find out, otherwise as u said for the easz of mind just in-case it might need that extra power sometime then the 4 pin plugged in is better but as long as the 8 pin can deliver the right amount 4 pin wont be used and if the 8 pin did fail for some reason the system will shut down so the 4 pin wont work as back up to cover for 8 pin

Keep in mind the ATX 24-pin connector provides 12v power to the CPU, too. It can provide up to 144 watts. So 288 plus 144 should be enough for those 300 watts. Even if you just take into account one of the two 12v lines of the ATX24 pin cable, it's 288+72=360.

Anyone know if the mSATA/wireless combo card can be used if you're using a radiator (Antec Kuhler 620 in my case), especially in a TJ08-E? (I have a Maximus V Gene)

I can't test it right now, but from the looks of it, it won't fit? Was planning on buying a mini wireless card so I can go Crossfire/SLI soon, I currently have a PCIe wireless card in use.

worse case scenario u get Pci one and am not sure but maybe there is a way to the Msata to plug in pcie slot,

however i have Haf x case and it fit normal with H100 cooler


not sure if u can see it but it's there , and i did do both mount the h100 in a way that the Tubes are same side as Msata place and the other way so it was fine but depends on the case and how much width and high it will give u

Maximus V Gene is mATX, so if I go SLI/Crossfire, there won't be a space for anything else, unless I use single slot cards and even then that only gives me 1x (or is it 4x?) PCIe slot free.

I guess I'll have to try it out tomorrow, failing that I'll have to use a USB wireless card, which is what I was hoping to avoid, but I guess I can't always have things my way. tongue.gif
post #2517 of 4012
it is x4, but u can use the Mpcie for the wirless it have Slot for m ssd and have blue tooth also wirless

Ah I think I got your rig mixed up with another I was looking at around the same time... thought yours was a golden crossfire bridge, not the black ROG SLI bridge I see now in your avatar pic. I'm curious about the sound card - why do you use it as opposed to the onboard sound or (my pref) an external interface like a DAC via USB or on-board TOSLINK? I had to give up my preferred sound card when I built my MVE rig as it was the ASUS XONAR ST - and there's no PCI slots on the board. Anyway, so you're saying that it won't work at all in the x4 slot with Slots 1 and 2B populated with GPUs?

Although part of the problem might be with the additional fact that you're running SB processor... so you're not getting PCIe 3.0 speeds at all (unless you've updated your CPU and haven't updated the system specs in your sig). There seems to be a few things likely to cause issues with a board that's had as much problem as this one has just getting a BIOS release that was stable and actually FIXED more things than it broke. rolleyes.gif

Note that I'm not saying you SHOULD be having these problems... I don't want you to think that I'm saying there's any reason why a 2500K shouldn't be used on an MVE board... it's just that I think they have a very, very limited number of configurations in mind when they wrote the firmware for this board. wink.gif

Actually to be honest I have never tried the MVE onboard sound never even installed the drivers, How is the on board compared to ASUS XONAR ST ?

I brought the sound card because on my previous build Asus p67p evo the onboard was crap I wanted slightly more amplification and an equalizer for my CM Storm 5.1 analogue headphones as poor bass response. I did look at a USB sound interface but at the time they were too expensive and only the creative Sound Blaster was available in NZ and the driver issues put me off I had a spare PCIE slot spare so it made sense at the time.

I have sorted all my problems well identified the cause of them, just waiting for a response from MSI to try RMA x1 GTX 580

I probably only needed a MVF but at the time I was going to go 3 way GTX580 SLI or get a raid card so got the MVE for room for future upgrade itches. But trying to find a SH GTX 580 for the right price has been a nightmare as I don't want to pay more than what a brand new GTX 660 Ti is worth as they are equal in performance.
I am happy with the current performance of my pc I just wanted to beat my friends 680 SLI tongue.gif bench marks.

being a tight fisted I didn't see any point in upgrading to a IB only for PCIE 3 when my cards are only PCIE 2 but as time goes on I am thinking that I will wait a while for the next gen of GPUs to come out as the performance boost playing on my friends water cooled GTX 680s only makes a slight upgrade in my opinion that makes me lean towards the 7970s for value and better performance but I know I would feel disappointed again like switching from a p67p EVO to MVE in performance wise. but the last upgrades were more for looks as I am sick of a ghetto looking pc so I got what I wanted, a nice looking build clean and a lot of slots. biggrin.gif

For anyone wondering about the on board audio it is very good. I use Maschine and Ableton and after getting my new rig, i have no need for some of my outboard gear. Unless your an audiophile, the audio is great.

Yes your MVF has the Supreme FX IV capable of driving 300 ohm head phones.
The MVE has Realtek ® ALC898 7.1-Channel High Definition Audio
The MVG has Supreme FX III built-in 8-Channel

So there is no comparison between them unfortunately I would have used the onboard sound if it were the Supreme FX IV on the MVE
