post #821 of 2086
Hi all,

i'm planning to upgrade my system using the Asus Maximus IV rev.3 P67 and an i7 2600k

my questions are regarding the memory and the sli :

I will be runing windows 7 64 bit and therefore wanted to run 16gb of memory using 4x4 GB. I would therefore like to know if soemone already tried 16gb with this board.

I currently run an SLI setup using 2 x GTX460 and was wondering if people have sucessfull experiences with SLI on this board

any help would be apreciated.

Hi there,

I never tried 16 GB, but my memory setting is 4x2GB. All work fine.
For SLI Setup, I'm using 2xGTX580 and it work fine also.

1. Having more ram modules 4x4 makes IMC on the processor work harder, and also increase the vcore/dram voltage needed to get the system stable during overlocking

2. If your not using the pc for heavy application etc you will be perfectly fine with 8GB 4x2, which is the best option for SB and also offer better OC results/options.

Hi
i'm actually multiboxing 5 game instances of World of Warcraft and since each game running needs min 2 gb I though i'd get a bit of margin.
The CPU will be water cooled.
Since i'll be running SSDs i want to be sure that the ram does not end up being the limiting factor really.

So I boot up my box today and no mouse. I can log in and boot up fine but the pointer sits in the middles of my screen lifeless. I pull the usb cord our and try the port next to it with no luck. I try switching from wireless to corded (Razer Mamba) and nothing. I then plug it into my All in one and it works just fine. Try another USB port on the MOBO and it works no prob. Is it possible I killed the two usb ports?? We did have power failure and a pretty heavy storm last night.

I have the molex power connector plugged in for the PCI lanes, I was going to ask about if this was needed since I am only running one GPU. And define "the regular one"??

Hey guys i am having an issue with my motherboard i overclocked my i7 2600k to 4.8 ghz and it was stable before so today i upgraded my bios to 1409 asus official version they have added those fixes:

Maximus IV Extreme 1409 BIOS
1. 2.2TB or larger HDD can be supported under RAID mode.
(Need to install IRST 10.5 version driver first, you can find it under "SATA" catalogue)

so after i upgraded my bios to 1409 my OC is not stable anymore....what can i do about it?which bios version is the best for overclocking?
thanks!
