Asus Maximus IV Extreme/i7-2600K Setup - Page 22

post #211 of 246
Here is a quick shot of the completed Sandy Bridge "Beast"....

I just turned it on yesterday and had no problems at all!! Just starting to benchmark...but have to go out of town all week!!! I did end up with one puzzling issue..Here is the setup:

I have the Revo Drive X2 in the bottom 4x PCIe slot...The Three GTX 580's in PCIe slots 1,2,4...The M4E is telling me that slot 1 is 8x and 2 and 4 are 16x. I also have a soundcard in the 1x slot...

The Revodrive is only running at about half it's rated speed...somewhat discouraging...I have been trying to think what the cause might be:

1.) PCIe Lanes are maxed??
2.) Bios issue with bandwidth in the 4x slot..

When I get back on Friday I plan on switching off a couple of the 580's to see if the Revodrive speeds up...that might tell me if it is a PCIe saturation issue...If not it might be a bios issue...I was also thinking of removing the Sound card from the 1x slot to see if that has any effect...Can't wait to bench this beast..!! If anyone has some insights, they would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks,

-M

For benching, just try to get your OS running as lean as possible. Remove anything you don't need, and let it fly.

The memory is the only thing I'm really not 100% pleased with right now.
Current world record is held by corsair GTX2..... 2300mhz @ 7-7-6-21 setting so corsair is still at top

Change the setting for vrm + digi the T.Probe to Extreme maybe? Mine dont drop at all though when set to 100% it increases the vcore under load.

That must have taken at least 1.8 DIMM...not what I'm looking for

Hey SirJamesD , have you had any problems with the M4E and posting problems on OCs that have even deemed bench stable?

No dice, as that was already set in place. Kinda funny. I can set it at 1.27 or 1.3 and it idles at 1.256-1.26 and goes down to 1.248 at full load.
