Yeah if the audio isn't working properly I've found that you have to install the Chipset driver before you install the X-Fi crystalizer. Should work fine after that. If you have the installation disc, just install your drivers as they go from top to bottom. Worked perfectly fine for me. The only driver I did not install was the LAN Driver because I have a wireless card that works awesome.

got a question about the q-connector. On page 2-48 of the manual it shows the system panel and all the connections. On the next page it shows how to use the q-connector. Does this mean I can choose not to use the q-connector? Or do I have to use it? Im using it now but would like to remove it cause I think it looks ugly lol.

I have the Antec Lanboy Air case and want to know if I can fit a Crosshair IV Extreme mobo in there. The case specs dont say it supports EATX, but I tested a Crosshair IV Formula and there was ~3cm clearance under the board which should be good enough.

If anyone has the Lanboy Air and a CHIV Extreme, I would appreciate your input.

yeah i would, put the ram on auto with multi at 250 and go for stable on that first, prolly gonna have to move cpuv off of auto though
plus we have the same ram and my is luven the 1.65v

I have the lanboy air red edition. The crosshair IV Extreme is a very tight fit. Cable management is difficult but not impossible if you are creative. some of the 3.5' bays are blocking the MB from going all the way in, it makes the mb tray stick out about 1/16" from the back, so you get a little bulge but it doesn't bother me. I am thinking of just removing all of the 3.5" bays near that block the MB.

Also the MB tray partially blocks the CPU HS mounting bracket, so it was a PITA to install my TT Frio. I had to install the HS outside of the case off of the MB tray, then drop the MB through the side of the case onto the MB tray and secure it... My HS doesnt have enough clearance to slide the tray out of the back with it installed.

there is no room above the MB tray for cables to go, so to get my 8pin CPU up there I had to cut back the sleeving, remove the MB tray mounting bracket and slide the cable in there, flatten out the cables into a row, then replace the mounting bracket.

So it will fit, but its very tight! Its very difficult to work with also. If you dont love the case as much as I do, it will probably end up being more frustration than its worth. I love the design and looks of the case so the nuances are acceptable to me



EDIT: Here are some pictures of what Ive got going so far. I still have a lot of work to do with my cable management. Going to be redoing some of it and trying out different ideas. Apologies for the horrible cell phone pics. Will get some quality photos done when Im finished. The last few pictures are to better demonstrate those issues I spoke about above.

do not know, but the extreme is exactly 1" longer from the back to the front
extreme is 12" x 10.6"
formula is 12" x 9.6"

Thank you for the great reply
I love this case enough to work through the cable management issues.
For the 8pin power on the top, I was going to get something like a
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812198024

Is there enough room to connect the bottom molex 4pin power plug, or would I need a 90* adaptor for that? (It is called EZ_PLUG_2 in the manual.)
Or do I even need to connect the power to both of those?


I have two HD6950s I want to xfire and an old HD4650 I want to run standalone only for an extended desktop. I know this is possible on the CHIV Formula, but I am not sure how it will work with the Lucid chip in there. Is there a way to disable the Lucid, or will it even matter? (I have never used lucid before)

About the EZ_PLUG_1, I have no idea how to get something run there without it just hanging in the air. As for the bottom one, EZ_PLUG_2, there is about an inch of MB tray below it, so there shouldnt be any issue getting a straight molex down there, a 90* probably wouldn't work unless it was rotated backwards if that makes sense. As far as needing those connected, one of the other guys can probably better answer that question as I have not yet installed my vid cards lol.

Here is a picture of what I was talking about with the 8pin up top to give you a better idea of how tight it is up there. The really thick cable up top is my USB3.0 passthrough lol.
