ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread (North American users only) - Page 1260

post #12591 of 15447
I was wondering if anyone has the Asus x99 Strix and running dual video cards? The pice spacing is odd? What kind of sli bridge are you using? Also I noticed the manual "recommends single gpu" only for this board. Silly IMO honestly.


If the Strix drama odd and not fun to deal with. What case are you guys using that would fit the new rampage v edition 10? I have used car labs in the past but I honestly don't have. 3-7 weeks to wait for a case for this build. Not as many eatx case choices out there. I've looked at the Inwin 909, this case is very odd to me. That's about the only eatx Inwin offers. Not much in terms of Nzxt. Not a fan of thermaltake anymore. Most of the corsairs are very cheesy kinda that will hold a eatx. Then if you went with the 780t it's massive but still kinda limiting in internal space. I'm not going full water cool loop on this on, mainly want the ek predator 360 for CPU and air cool gpu's.

I'm at a mental break down here, lol.

Thanks

The Flashback button DOES flash.


My USB drive LED DOES flash.

You would need to use slot 1 and slot 3 for SLI on the Strix.

I'm considering the Strix and the Gigabyte Ultra Gaming myself. Seems like the Gigabyte has everything the Asus has other than no WiFi/Bluetooth (has a slot to install M.2 WiFi/Bluetooth though). You can buy the GB Phoenix SLI mobo which has WiFi/BT and costs $30 more. The Asus has odd slot spacing while the GB has great spacing and they are all metal shielded vs 1 on the Asus. The GB also has LED's on the RAM slots and you can control the LED's via BIOS. Asus has 8 and 4 pin CPU connectors and the OC socket (more pins). Doubt That would make a difference on anything other than LN2 cooling.

I've had 5-6 gigabyte boards in the past and they were decent. I think I'm sticking with Asus on this one. The odd spacing on the Strix for the pice slots reminds me of the x99 Sabertooth I had. I don't know if the spacing is the same on the Strix as the Sabertooth, can't find measurements anywhere. I need to find out what bridge would work with 1080's on the Strix. If I can't I'll go with the rampage 5 v10 with more standard spacing. I just can't seem to find a case I like to fit the rampage 5 v10.

What CPU? BTW the GB has a new BIOS.

If the spacing is the same as the x99 Sabertooth then no. The only way to get 2 way sli on the x99 Sabertooth is to buy the Asus rog sli bridge (2-way) but it offers an option to take it apart and add a partner comes with to make it longer. It is in between standard spacing making it tough to sli.

Check your manual and make sure your USB is in the right port. Om my X99-A II it wasn't the same port as my R5E but one of the bottom blue USB 3.0 ports. And I would attach the 8 pin power as well as the 24 pin too. smile.gif

Do they flash more then a few seconds or a few minutes or so. redface.gif

Edit: And prepare the USB using the Windows 8 diskpart commands in this link.

http://www.supertalent.com/datasheets/Resetting%20USB%20drive%20using%20Windows%20Diskpart-V1.pdf

If the USB was used for a UEFI install it won't work without doing this. biggrin.gif

Note" The 'format fs=fat32 quick' has a typo and you want to take the space out between 'fs'= and 'fat32' and a few commands don't copy and paste right. I made a .txt file, copied the commands to it and corrected them and I have it saved on my storage drive to quickly copy and paste when I want a BIOS flash USB. wink.gif

Here, Open a 'command prompt' as administrator. Then run the following commands one at a time minus the numbers and brackets.

Or just search for diskpart in Windows 10 and right click and and 'Run as administrator', then no need to do '1)' as diskpart is already running.

1) diskpart
2) list disk
3) select disk n 'Replace 'n' with the USB disk number in list disk.''
4) clean
5) create partition primary
6) format fs=fat32 quick
7) active
8) assign
9) exit
10) exit
