Are you just trying to make sure it works before you mod? They are all hand tested so I doubt you'll have a bad board

Where? in the BIOS section... can't see it, certainly not in any recent posts.

Was interested in getting this board but it may not fit my setting.

I have 2 x 7970 and a creative titanium HD sound card. It has to go to the 3rd pcie slot. First pciex1 slot is a no go as my card has a waterblock and backplate.

Can it run at like x1 speed like the Asus board or completely disable if I run SB? Based on what I read in the manual, the 3rd pcie slot does not work with SB.

Asus has a nice feature to turn the 3rd pcie to x1 if the top two pcie slots are filled up, ie, I current run x8 x8 x1 on my p8p67pro board. Kinda blows if this board doesn't have this feature. Am really excited about getting this board, but I want to run my soundcard.

Surely if your Soundcard is PCI-e 1x it will run in any of the slots on the motherboard? Aren't all 1x slots active. I can't see anything in the manual suggesting otherwise.

Any idea if this BIOS magically allows you to clock the CPU higher than before? I'm back on 4.2 with auto volts because 4.4 Isn't 100% stable and the voltage is getting too high at 1.275. Can't dissipate much more heat.

Hmm... well i don't trust cpuid vcorre numbers but, i just ran intelburntest and my vcore hovered around 1.176 - 1.184 at 77c-82c on air, but i ever need 100% cpu for anything i do.

Do you guys know how to turn off the integrated graphics? I have a bunch of items that launch at startup and I would like to disable those.

Apparently according to another poster on this forum it can be done as follows.

1) Leave the GTX 670 out of the case for the moment.
2) Go to Start, right click on My Computer (I'm assuming you're on Windows) and choose Properties. Next, in the left taskbar, choose Device Manager. Scroll down to the integrated graphics drivers (usually found at "Display Adapters"), and disable them. Do NOT uninstall them, otherwise this'll bring you a world of trouble.
3) Shut down the PC and install the GTX 670 in the case. Make sure to plug the monitor cable into the GTX 670 this time, not in the usual iGPU one.
4) Start up the PC again, when you get to the Windows Logon, it'll probably run on low resolution.
5) Install the graphics drivers for the card, by going to Nvidia's website and downloading the newest drivers for it.
6) Job done.

Evidently this won't work with the graphics cards installed, because the iGPU doesn't show up under the display adapters list. Whether there is a way to do it via windows once the GPU's are in I don't know... probably not as the iGPU is deactivated.

There may be an option in the BIOS however.

Edit: Try this in the BIOS.
