Asus ROG Maximus VI Impact Owner's Club - Page 70

post #691 of 1272
I would like to share my build

CPU:1 x Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz
Motherboard: 1 x ASUS MAXIMUS VI IMPACT
Memory:1 x CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB)
Case:1 x Cooler Master Elite 130
Power Supply:1 x SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM 550W
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Seidon 120XL
GPU: 1 x EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2765-KR
SSD:1 x SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 256GB
HDD:2 x Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 3TB 7200 RPM
ODD:1 x Panasonic UJ260, UJ-260 6x Blu-ray Burner
Memory:1 x Koutech IO-RCM630 Multi-in-1 USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Front Panel Internal Card Reader
Adapter:1 x Chenbro 1x ODD Bay to 1x Slim ODD Bay and 1x Internal 3.5-Inch HDD/FDD Bay Cage
Adapter:1 x StarTech Female Slimline SATA to SATA Adapter with Power
TPM: Asus TPM Module

Old Cooling Solution

CPU Cooler:1 x Prolimatech Samuel 17
CPU Fan:1 x GELID Solutions FN-PX12-15 120mm
Case Fan:1 x GELID Solutions FN-PX12-15 120mm

Some Comments of the Build

1) For Air Cooling the Prolimatech Samuel 17 Fits EXACTLY the Maximus VI Impact, there is no conflict, however the Sound Card is very close to the Cooler shen you connect the HD Audio cable to the front of the CASE, the Clearance between the CPU fan and the PSU is about 5 millimeters however with the PSU in a Air pull configuration keeps the CPU quite cool for the space on the case.
2) With Water Cooling the Coolermaster Seidon 120XL Works Great, it reduced the Load temperature by 30C from the air cooling Setup even with only one the fans installed (like a 120M).
3) Mounted 1 HDD on the Case floor mount, the other HDD on the side mount and the SSD in the mount below the 5.25 bay
4) The Chenbro 5.25 to Slim ODD + 3.5 bay adapter is excellent and offers an nice alternative for a Slim ODD + Memory reader in a 5.25 bay.
5) Installed Windows 8.1 Pro and debian in the SSD. 200 GB for Windows and 50 for debian. UEFI works excellent. TIP: Use a USB 2.0 port for installing Windows 8.1 (an 3.0 will keep asking for drivers on the disk detection phase).
6) The HDDs are running on RAID1 Configuration for redundancy.
7) SATA RAID mode + UEFI allow to configure the RAID from within the BIOS Setup
8) Air Cooling Temperature is 32 C in idle and 75C overclocked 3.9 GHz with prime95 running after 30 minutes.
Liquid Cooling Temperature is 30 C in idle and 48C overclocked 3.9 GHz with prime95 running after 30 minutes.
Liquid Cooling Temperature is 40 C in idle and 59C overclocked 4.2 GHz with prime95 running after 30 minutes.
9) Windows 8.1 boots in less than 10 seconds.
10) Installed ASUS TPM 1.2 module to able to encrypt the volumes.
11) Cable manamegent is a little hard, specially after noticing that i will not be able to change the PSU mobo cable because the PSU is partially modular.
12) The Air cooling Built is VERY silent, you almost cannot hear the FANs running. The CPU Gelid runs at 800 RPM in idle. the liquid cooling is also very silent however under load you can clearly listened the fans.

The build is here.

Hey guys just wondering if this board is picky with Team Xtreem memory? It is not on the Asus site showing certified memory but it is Intel XMP V1.3 version


DDR3 2666 (PC3 21300)
Timing 11-13-13-35
Cas Latency 11
Voltage 1.65V




Just bought the board and a 4770k tonight.. Build log coming soon.. biggrin.gif

Part of the reason that memory isn't on the QVL will be that it runs at 1.65v, The Haswell chips IMC's are not spec'ed to run memory of more than 1.5v. The other reason is that team extreme isn't a big market share holder of memory sales. In fact, you would be the first person I've had contact with that has bought any besides review sites.

And honestly, I've yet to hear one good thing about Team Extreme memory. Just my 2cents.gif

Thanks I usually only buy GSkill or Corsair and I am happy but for the price of $169.99 vs GSkill at $269.99 I'll give it a try.
I'll keep you guys posted with my findings.

Just pulled the trigger on them from the egg and I will pick them up in person on Monday.

I also just bought the following for the board below and I am hoping this memory uses the BLACK PCB vs the GREEN because I plan on throwing Bitspower blocks below

Bitspower AIZ87M6IITX Copper Water block for Maximus VI Impact - Nickel/Clear


Bitspower Universal RAM Module Water Cooling Set For 2 Banks 2-DIMMs - Clear/Black

I'm planning a very similar cooling set for my build can't wait to see your build log.

Will this fit 212X CPU cooler without having to remove supremeFX?
post #698 of 1272
Can someone that is using offset modes check your voltages with HWMonitor? Mine seem to be way off and I hope it's just a software glitch.
post #699 of 1272
Anyone found a work around to connect the front audio headers with the full EK block? I remember seeing that the EK block gets in the way. Do they make short connectors?
post #700 of 1272
The audio header placement is absurd, considering how cramped the CPU area is. I'm using a Noctua NH-L12 and connecting the front audio panel cable to the header is impossible.

I even tried an L shaped adapter but there's very little space.
