I also have this guy in slot 6.



When I DID have it in slot 2, it downgraded my GPU in slot 3 to X8 performance. Slot 4 shares the same resources as the M.2 slot so If I put it their it will downgrade it's performance. I'm not concerned with it being in slot 6 because the Intel 750 only runs at X4. Now the performance. My issues with riser cards are that they would get in the way of the waterblock for my GPU's. I have tried using risers. I have enough spare parts in my office closet to build 1 or 2 more PC's if I wanted to. My kids all have their own laptops, and iPhone 6's. My wife has her own office with a desktop, as well as a laptop, ipad air 2, and iphone 6.

When I was working on this project, I was using my living room's HTPC which I moved into my office. It is running an older core i7 CPU. Nobody in my house missed it. My kids and family are all spoiled when it comes to technology. They all have their own Samsung flat screens, DirecTV DVR receivers, and Amazon FireTV boxes. My son has 4 different game systems attached to his 55 inch TV in his game room. My 16yo daughter never uses the game room because she is has her own home theatre setup in her bedroom. Every online component in my house is connected to a shared drive on my router which has a huge music and picture library. My internet is TWC 300 Mbps so we don't really have bandwidth issues. My office PC has a LAN connection which usually gets around 330-350Mbps. My wife has her own business line for her office. All our laptops and connected streaming devices are on the 5Ghz channel and I typically get around 130-150Mhz connections over wifi. That's in my master bedroom which is downstairs. My router is upstairs. Our house is fairly big 2700 square feet.

Does anyone here use the turbo lan app and if so notice any real improvements?

I tried it out and I set some priorities higher than it stood as default on some software's and for some reason it slowed down my internet speed. It took noticeable longer time to go on some sites for example.
I didnt find the program any good,I didnt invest a lot of time in the sw either so that could be the reason.
But not really a program im going back to.

So I sent in a message to Asus support regarding the CPU fan header error message and this is what I sent and received back.

Would it be possible in the next BIOS revision to include the option to completely disable the CPU fan? I have a water cooled system that does not use any of the fan headers so during bootup I always receive an error message stating that I have no CPU fan installed. I am able to bypass the error but it does slow the boot process.
Thank you.

Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.
I understand that you want the option to disable the CPU fan completely.
No worries, let me intimate this concern to my development team and they will work on this.
Thank you so much for your feedback and suggestion in this regard.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us again for assistance.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Set the CPU fan monitor to ignore in UEFI. That's what I use on my personal, fully water-cooled system. No error messages (base UEFI code is the same)...heh

I tried it once. It reduced my upload bandwidth substantially, by like 60-70%. I did various ping tests, including pinging my gateway with a sub-microsecond util, and found absolutely no improvement in latency. The standard Intel driver can be configured for low latency quite easily, chiefly by disabling interrupt moderation.

Somebody with Asus ThunderboltEX II DUAL?
After BIOS flash to 3201 it doesn't work anymore (tried all slots with relative BIOS settings). No way.
Reverting back to 3101 solve the issue.

Am I alone?

How do you revert the bios on this board? EZ Flash tells me my older cap file is not a valid bios file, and Flashback gives me the five lights, followed by a solid light that tells me that it's not doing anything.
post #3290 of 4073
It seems that current online 3101 bios file is corrupted. I had the same problem, then I figured out I had a previous downloaded version on my pendrive and it worked like a charm (with EZ tool, no need of flashback)
