Good Luck thumb.gif

look at the last 10 previous pages in this forum thumb.gif

AiSuite can be your friend but it can also ramp your voltages through the roof(not good if you click that apply button, try to setup a'thing in the bios if you can and disable AiSuite Auto-startup

both PLX chips and whatever else is under the Asus big heatsink gets really hot to start with i.e 60c don't worry about it, it'll take a short time for it to bed in but you'll still get a high temp from it, don't be tempted to waterblock PLX heatsink, it doesn't need it. plenty of airflow is the key

If you have RAM coolers PUT THEM ON, i have to use PCI-E 3 for my gfx card because my corsair huge assed RAM heatsinks are 2 huge and cover up PCI-E 1

it your using a M.2 SSD get an adapter and stick it onto a PCI-E slot, i seemed to get a better speed with my 950pro, if you don't have a spare PCI-E slot stick it onto the M.2 slot

4x Graphics cards are enough for this board to start with, any more than that and you'll be having problems (my opinion in what i have read)(upto you to do the research). i just have 1 PCS+ R9 290 attached atm, and that's is good enough for me for the moment


How deep are your pockets is a good question when your adding the appendages to this board or any other board mad.gif

Thanks for the info, baconinabun. I started reading this thread from the first page this morning, and I am around the 50th page or so smile.gif Maybe I should go backwards like you said.

some of the early stuff is also good to have a look, but as the Bios versions change and peoples attitude changes and better information becomes available so the the page 1-200 are not the best place to start, as some are very negative. some of late have also been negative but hay ho you can't win them all thumb.gif

start from about page 268

and just take your time, it will all be clear rolleyes.gif

Hello all...I know I haven't posted on this forum for a while but I have a question regarding SLI configurations. Now that prices are falling for 980Ti's, I'm thinking about purchasing a 4th card. Instead of running quad SLI, I'm wondering if the board would support dual card SLI times two. Basically two separate SLI configurations. The reason being better driver support. I'd be running one 4K monitor on the first SLI and three more 2160x1440 monitors on the second SLI. I know that I could run all four monitors on a quad SLI configuration however driver support is lacking. My current configuration is dual card SLI for my 4k monitor and my third 980ti is running my other three monitors.

I guess the shortage for this board is now over. Appears to be in stock in several places now.

I don't think this would be a limitation of the board, it will take 4 x GPU's. Your question would likely be better suited I think in the Nvidia forums, asking whether the Nvidia drivers will allow you to run 2 separate SLI'd sets on one motherboard. I am quite sure the answer will be no.

I am in the middle of installing drivers on a fresh Windows 7 install, and have a question. I have to update the BIOS, and the chipset drivers. But for the USB drivers, there is Intel v3.0.1.41 and Asmedia USB 3.1/3.0 v1.16.24.0. I need both of these, correct?

Also, for this particular board, the 3.1 model, are there any utilities drivers you recommend?

Well after fiddling with the board for a year and a half the 3004 BIOS made all my issues with this board disappear. Thank the baby Jesus. Finally running Crucial Elite at 2666 Mhz at 12 12 12 32.
