Only people with some version od Logitech G keyboard. But with 1.07 BIOS I can easy open BIOS wit DEL taster. Everything work now and other manufacturer are resolve that problem too. PS2 and all other keyboard work with all version of BIOS.

I always like how EVGA boards look different than others, I can say like part of space ship special X79 FTW and X79 Classified and SR-X other high end board look like some kind of toys I don't know, all same. Only EVGA try hard to make happy their customer. For other that is massive production like TV and refrigerators.
I buy because gaming and daily use but I need graphic card faster than series 7xx. I mean before new Nvidia series. I want my motherboard and graphic to be complete but now I think to spend little more on 680 Classified and stay about 3 years with that card. My Radeon was work almost 3 years non-stop deep OC and graphic card is next step.
Tell my what number is that your Mushkin Redline... and how work with Z77 FTW.
One of the reasons I'm running the 1.07 BIOS, so I don't need to bust out my PS/2 backup whenever I need to go into BIOS. The Del key worked, and for all those interested: yes, you can disable the Marvel SATA controller if you don't want it.
EVGA rep: in the next revision of BIOS as "Press and hold 'Del' key to enter BIOS" would be very much appreciated. Not a huge deal, but with your already very sparse reading material on your BIOS for the FTW, it would be very helpful.
Same. One of the reasons I bought the FTW as well: I eliminated every board that wasn't 100% PCIe 3.0 for the x16 slots (I made an exception for the x4 and x1 slots), I wanted to be ready for when I do finally upgrade my GPU, I want to go to the latest generation.This
is the specific ram kit I bought. 1866Mhz, 9-9-9-27. It's the third Mushkin kit I bought, and I've been very satisfied with the product all three times.
The first two kits I bought were two of these
to be used on an Asus P67 Sabertooth. The XMP on those kits were picked up just fine. But the XMP on this kit (for the FTW) I had to select manually. No big deal, it selected just fine. I ran everything through a 6 hour Prime95 torture test to verify the memory was good, as well as MemTest. Everything checked out.
One thing I did note it's like the heat sinks are "backwards" when you install on board with the Z77 chip set - or at least every Z77 board I've thought to take a closer look at the DIMM slots on. The heat sinks are these hollowed out triangles. You have the two sides, but not middle or base, and they're supposed to be facing up, like the letter 'V'. Heat starts at the bottom of the 'V', and drifts up, out and away. In stead it's like the letter "A" without the cross piece. Drifts up, hits the apex and then comes out. The ram seems to run maybe one-three decrees C hotter than normal because of this. nothign concerning, but something to note.
All in all, very happy with the kit. I decided that from now I'm only buying Mushkin for my RAM. They're an American company that builds their product here - and I already send enough of my money overseas when I buy my computer parts. Plus, they offer a lifetime warranty on all their Ram. NASA uses them, and if it's good enough for NASA, it's good enough for me.
