Hope to get some OCN members here sharing some information about this motherboard.
Will be updating the thread in near future thumb.gif

Count me in:



Currently running a 4770K with 8GB of G-Skill and a 560 Ti

I am in the midst of a case swap and am waiting for some fittings a couple of fans and a new RX360 V3 to finish my build.


Hulk - did you get your fans worked out yet?
post #4 of 945
Count me in, haven't updated my specs here on OCN yet because I'm trying to get my WiFi to work on the board. Anyone else have an issue with the WiFi saying 'not connected'???

edit: It worked when I first set up the computer and I think when I updated the BIOS this issue started. Not sure though.

edit 2 [SOLVED]: I went to Lenovos site (http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS038184) and downloaded the WiFi driver from them. This driver works as opposed to the one provided on the ASUS website.

Hulk - saw your other thread.

Only the "CPU fan" is PWM. If you set the Q control to "Auto" in the BIOS, then you can use the PWM function in AISuite.

My Noctua F12 will run as low as 17%, which is 260rpm, whereas the same fan in a non "CPU FAN" header will run only as low as 47%, which is 760rpm.

Don't forget though, you can daisy chain more than one fan onto the PWM signal as long as they add up to less than 1 amp (12 watts). (although I'm not sure what would happen if you used different fans)

Nice smile.gif
I have to make a spoiler box documenting issues/bugs/fixes for problems throughout the thread.

Thanks Wihglah biggrin.gif
I was worried since speedfan isn't updated, but Fan Xpert2 does the same thing so this definitely worked out. My pump is running 1500rpm right now smile.gif
I did not want to install AI Suite on this computer, it is pretty interesting program though

Nice rig btw biggrin.gif the cooler scares me thumb.gif

What BIOS are you using?

me too - it keeps stalling. There are upsides though:

this was my 3770K before I killed it.

Question on this board as it's at the top of my list for my new build - but I'm having a lot of trouble finding somewhere that explains how PCI expansions work, and why 16x8x8 supports somethings, and why 8x4x4 doesn't support others, etc.

If some one has an overview thread of SLI, PCI, and how it all works I'd like to educate myself on it.

But in the meantime, I'd just like to know if this board will support 3 way SLI of NVidia cards? Namely 3 780 Ti.

Again, it would seem getting educated on what configuration of PCIe support what types of video card configurations is hard to come by, but I would love to be educated on it - as well as get the short answer to what the board supports.

Thanks much.

SLI only works on x8 channels. The Formula VI has 3 x16 slots, but if you use two, you only get x8 on both, which is OK for SLI, but if you fill 3, then you get 1 x8 and 2 x4, which is no good for SLI.

So, no, you can't do tri-SLI on the Formula VI.

You can do tri-crossfire though.

...and this new chipset is the result of Haswell technology, whereas the Formula boards in the past have supported 3-way SLI no problem, right?
