Thanks for the reply. I updated to the 1.70 bios from 1.10 before installing windows. I ran 1.70 for about a week or so, and the mouse (a Logitech wireless k400r...keyboard/touchpad combo) never gave me problems. I have backup wired parts I can use but was not having problems with the wireless up to the point where I ended up with smart connect enabled and was entering the uefi to check. That's when the mouse went wonky. Those two things combined with what I'd read here led me to flash the new bios, admittedly, somewhat out of sheer panic. I will try to get pics up in the next few days (I need to crack it open for an adjustment, so will do then). I guess I will be less concerned about the vcore bump. I was concerned that that amount of a bump was perhaps a bit much for just a bios update.

The heatsink definitely makes tear downs and working internally a bit of a challenge. I also had to figure out if I wanted to use the backplate or not (as some have just used washers when there was conflicts with the plate and components on the back of the board).
I ended up modifying the backplate to clear the taller components, and added washers underneath to clear the shorter ones. This necessiated adding washers on the topside as well (between the legs and board) as the nuts that fit from the backside normally protrude through the board to meet up with the mount topside. I also tried it with just washers and no backplate. Needless to say, the system has been torn down and heatsink reapplied several times now (I knew I should have gotten the bigger tube of PK-2). I honestly doubt there was a difference either way, especially since the board is mounted horizontally.

Most people with the axp-140 in the SG05 were also running the 12mm sycthe fan as a 20mm would be touching the psu. I had read favorable things about having the fan in pull with the psu in pull as well (creating a nice handoff of air). I found the Gelid 120x15mm pwm fan and figured it was worth a try since the scythe 12mm pwm fan is harder to come by (I believe only available directly from them) so would be stuck with 3pin scythe in one of 3 speeds. I also made the assumption that the gelid would have better static pressure than the 12mm scythe, though could never find actual figures on the scythe. The Gelid also had better advertised CFM than the scythe's. I never even tried the fan in push, and now with a video card in the case and the 70mm fan placed underneath, it'd be a nightmare to try. Would need to fully teardown to get to zip ties and would have to just disable the 70mm fan since installing it was a real pain.

That's a lot of words.....biggrin.gif

When I have time I might redo my cables, I can get them pretty good with some effort, I just rushed to put my computer back together so I messed up my cables pretty bad this time around. I think I should order some short sata cables because the included ones are far too long for the sg05.

I'm on bios 1.30, one of my two boards came with bios 1.10 so I upgraded to 1.30. I didn't upgrade to the very latest bios because they are a bit 'new' and mostly seem to have something to do with windows 8, an OS I will be skipping biggrin.gif

Hi guys, I specifically registered on this site since it seems to contain the most active Asrock Z77E-ITX Owners thread on the web.. anyhow I'm having hell of a time resolving a specific issue. I'll try to keep it straight to the point.

I have a Shuttle SZ77R5 and I recently replaced the stock motherboard with an Asrock Z77E-ITX. Prior to installing the Asrock motherboard, I had no issues whatsoever... however, I'm now experiencing the infamous Nvidia "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding" error. I have an Asus 660 GTX OC video card, 16GB of 1600mhz RAM, i7 3770K, 500w PSU and two OCZ Vertex 3 120GB SSD hard drives configured in RAID 0.

The only thing that's really changed since the motherboard swap is the new motherboard and the new RAID 0 configuration. I can't imagine a RAID config causing this issue so it leads me to believe there is either an issue with the motherboard itself or some sort of driver conflict. Has anyone experienced this issue with this specific combo of hardware?

Thanks!

i noticed there isn't a traditional PCI-E lever like on full ATX motherboards, so where's the "lever" and do you press it down like the DIMM slots? It's a pain in the ass that GPU removing is a bit different from other mobos in this regard.

how can that be pain in the rear? can't you just pull the card out?
with mini itx systems, it's too hard to access that lever once you completely assembled your system.
those levers you are talking about aren't actually levers, those are locking tabs, you push it down to unlock but those won't push the card up.
yes the z77e-itx also have some kind of locking, i snapped it because it's useless. your card is screwed down anyway.

so, it's like a DIMM lock, right?

like the one behind the PCI slot?

It does have a locking tab, and requires me to shove a pencil into my computer to unlock the gpu.
