ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread - Page 387

post #3861 of 5772
Guys I have a question that I really need answered before I make a purchase. I am literally about to buy two gigabyte gtx 980 ti extreme edition cards. I know the cards are thick but will the Maximus viii hero edition of the board be able to support two of these beast in SLI? I need to make sure they fit before buying that particular model which I really want.

The only issue I see with the hero is the card will overhang the i/o connectors on the edge of the board.

Thanks for the reply. I'm ok with that due to the connector design in using. Should work perfectly it seems.

maybe this is a good place to ask...

for the Z170-P D3 board the memory QVL lists pretty much all DDR3 memory, both 1.5v and 1.65v. what has Asus done to make those voltages safe for a Skylake's IMC? Intel was pretty clear with their warning, and then a reminder that only only 1.35v DDR3L memory is safe to run with a Skylake. obviously people are running DDR3 in those boards at 1.65v with no problems, at least so far. i think i read that enabling an XMP profile for regular DDR3 is a bad idea. what's the right way to run it? what are the safe VCCIO/SA voltages to run regular DDR3?

the next question is why the hell are your two Z170 DDR3 boards so low end? i can live without SLI, but not even 5 basic audio jacks? these jacks are the only reason why i'm leaning towards a Gigabyte board for the first time in my life. always loved Asus motherboards, but on this combo you guys really cheaped out.

and finally, are there any plans to make DDR3 motherboards on the Intel's 200 series chipsets? if so, will there be one that's SLI capable?

thanks.

How's it going everyone! Long time lurker

Out of nowhere AI Suite has been having issues properly controlling the fans that are connected to the system through an ASUS Extension Card, however all the other fans adjust correctly if a profile is selected. Interestingly, during the fan tuning AI Suite has no issue controlling the fans. Also when the fans are set to RPM Fix Mode they can be controlled. Anyone have any ideas besides AI Suite's troubled history rolleyes.gif

P.S. I've uninstalled AI Suite numerous times and ran the AI Suite Cleaner as well to remove the services. I've recently updated my Z170-Deluxe to Bios 1602.

I actually used my kingston 120gb ssd and that booted up faster...but my M.2 950 Pro takes forever to boot.

I use M8G and i love the boot speed. It is fastest Asus boot board i ever used, as fast as boot champ MSI.

I did turn off all un-used sata drives and only using 1TB SSD, 1 GPU, and a couple of usb ports.
That should help a little. thumb.gif

Can you confirm what version you are using please and what components are in the system

Seems obvious to me, DDR3 Z170 boards are an odd SKU, it IS low end, that's kind of the point.

I’m using DIP5 version 1.0.30 but everything else in my AI Suite install is from 1.0.28 minus Key Express which previously worked until I updated my AI install. My rig’s components are in my signature under the Osiris build. However, I’m having issues with three Corsair AF140 fans connected to the ASUS Extension Card

Issues with Samsung SSD 950 PRO boot times
I have a Samsung SSD 950 PRO and a Samsung SSD 850 PRO both cloned the same os using windows 10 uefi boot csm enabled. The Samsung SSD 950 PRO takes way longer to boot becuase the asus logo has to come on twice. Is this going to be a issue repaired in the future thru bios ? If not I think I'm just going to remove the Samsung SSD 950 PRO and use Samsung SSD 850 PRO for faster booting and easier cloning and restoring with Acronis and Parted Magic.

If you have a proper UEFI on a GPT partition install with Windows 10, and the Samsung 950 Pro. You can disable CSM, which will dramatically reduce your boot time on the 950 Pro.
Select the boot order from the EZ screen on the UEFI. The 950 Pro will normally be named (Windows boot manager).
