ASUS Z97 Motherboards - Official Support Thread - Page 2

post #11 of 1388
Thread Starter 
Have stopped looking at all the PWM stuff as the CPUs pull so little current that most of the boards clock the same barring memory - not something I worry about any more.

Thanks for your response Raja.

Any idea who I should contact to find out? Although I won't be running extreme overclocks it'd still be nice to find out what would run more efficiently with better stability in the long term with typical 4.4-4.8GHz overclocks, especially given I plan to run the system for at least 3-4 years.

Off the top of my head no.

Doubt you will see any issues either way to be honest. There aren't big enough current swings to cause any distress for a multiplexed VRM.

Thanks for posting the new Bios versions, Raja! Do you think there is a difference between flashing under Windows or Bios or Flashback (USB and Flash button in the I/O)?

For this build probably not, but in future if you always use USB BIOS Flashback, you'll never need to ask again smile.gif

Raja, the Quad Channel/Dual Channel thing confuses me with regard to Z97 memory. The QVL for Z97-WS is pretty short especially when you find that some that are on the list don't seem to ba available. What is the safest "filter" for picking memory for these boards?       Hoping others will find this a useful question.

Pick memory kits designed to work with Z87 or Z97 only. Don't combine more than one kit to make up a higher density (even if same model). If looking for plug-and-play, stick with kits rated at timings and frequency the CPUs support at stock voltages. If you don't mind putting some time in to tuning then purchasing faster memory is possible, albeit the return ratio for cost to performance is low.

Hi,

I currently see the Gryphon Z97 available for pre-sale but nothing on the Gryphon Z97 Armor kit? Do you have an ETA on it?

Thanks thumb.gif

The Z87 kit fits just fine - you can use that and that's what we'll continue selling.

Ok thanks thumb.gif

I asked it because in some preview images there was a Z97 Gryphon Armor Edition showed so I tought it would be released wink.gif
