Use MSI AB, the current beta version until they update to full for any 3x video adapter (or any other card) because it is universal regardless of cards on Windows 10

Everything else I posted in the driver sticky about MSI AB is the same








and Corsair iCUE software for the CPU liquid cooler




The above liquid monitor setup is based on 78F ambient constant...  your mileage may vary a bit




The Asus case fan control is all about what Han's said... set every tower fan in the Asus fan control software to respond to CPU temp ONLY and use his example graph which means all fans are 100% @ 70c because the Asus software reads the CPU -10c from actual which is what I SAID in the guide. Here is another example drawing...   




The Asus Fan Xpert software is going to request a run of a FAN evaluation.. what I found is, RUN IT. 

If it does not request that automatically, find the automated FAN TUNING button and let it do it's stupid stuff because after it may allow you more manual control over the bottom end of the chart shown above after that evaluation than it will before that is run. 

Then set all your motherboard controlled case fans manually/similar as shown above

Run the automated crap first.. then set your fans up as shown above and save the profile under a name.




Getting a DVD drive running with any system regardless of IN or OUT is technically easy one way or another.




I am sure you sim and real world pilots can figure out the rest of it.





Now...  I need to rest. Thumbs Up





Live long.. and Prosper      Beer

Hi Rob,

I see Nick beat me to it, but I was going to say you can accomplish what you want with MSI afterburner, ASUS suite/Fan Xpert  and the iCUE software -- Regardless of GPU brand. Thumbs Up

As usual, I'm a bit late to the dinner table....  And I don't have Nick's inimitable style with the Graphics either. LOL

Oh, and one last note

I know the market has a current fad rolling with small towers.

In a real world long distance marathon and applying physics there are many factors that go into winning such a race, but one is scientifically unquestionable...  the runner with the best set of lungs 

A larger box with front, side, rear and top intake/exhaust options means a larger reserve volume air capacity. Probably wont restrict a DVD drive install either.

Don't let any tower manufacture whisper different in your ear... regardless of how fast anything moves, for solid high clocked performance, especially without sounding like a wind tunnel...  size really does and always hasmattered Approve

I dropped in an old GTX460 GPU (dont have a 3090 yet), just so I can connect a monitor and start memtesting.
That is a PCIE 2.0 card.
The GPU works but I got the following BIOS message:

„the VGA card is not supported by UEFI driver.
CSM (compatibility support module) settings have been changed for better compatibility.
For further adjustments, press F1 to enter BIOS setup.
If no adjustment needed, press F2 to confirm the current settings and or enter OS directly.“

Now, I dont know what got changed.
And I do not know if it matters when later on I drop in a 3090?!

The motherboard had BIOS 707 so I first flashed that back to version 607.

Booting into the Bios 607 I was not confronted with that incompatibility message again.
Which I find weird!

So either Bios 607 actually does support my old GPU per default, or
These CSM settings are deeper than the Bios and therefore not affected by a Bios update (if there is even anything deeper than the Bios).

My intention is to start memtesting now (on XMP settings).

If I can get my hands on an affordable 3090 one day, I will reset (flash) the Bios, hoping that these CSM settings are reset as well.

No need to reflash the BIOS once you have a 3000-series.
Just disable CSM with the new card. (Boot menu)

This should already be set automatically but confirm:
Primary Display [PEG]

I think this setting will require a manual change and is most likely the only setting that disables the internal GPU:

iGPU Multi-Monitor [Disabled]

You want it disabled from now on.

Ok...I will take a look at those as soon as memtest on the first stick is finished.

Two more questions please:

1)
I assume it makes sense to check each of the 4 sticks in a different RAM slot right?
The preferred position for a single slot is A2, but I would like to test slot A1, B1 and B2 as well.
(I have not done so in the past).

2)
Do you guys still install a PC speaker for the power on self test....beep beeps?
These days MBs dont ship with them anymore.

1) Not saying anything is right or wrong here, I will just tell you what I did. I only tested the individual sticks in A2, and once that was done, I tested all four sticks with all slots populated. If there is a slot issue, it should be picked up in that test. 

2) I don't.

The system did not like it when DIMM slot A1 was the only occupied slot.

It bootet into a Bios in safe mode.

So I will do as you did Hans.

Rob, the slot is A2 (not A1) for a single stick.  The diagram in the MB manual is small but it shows that pg 1-5.

Yes you are correct.

I did check the first stick in A2.
But then I wanted to be smart and check the next one in A1, then a stick in B1 and last a stick in B2.

I thought that the recommended mem config was just recommended for optimum performance.
I did not know the PC does not even boot into the Bios if you dont stick to that...

 „recommendation“!

LOL  No damage done -- other than that brief sinking feeling when it doesn't boot.  Like "WTF ??!!!"   OK, call me old school, but since you asked, yea I do connect the little "speaker" (there's no speaker, it almost looks a capacitor on wires).  

I like hearing it when it boots -- like "get ready to hit F2 or Del" for the next dive into the BIOS when you get to the OCing trials.  

With this board it doesn't matter whether you connect it or not -- the coded messages on Q-LED display let you know what the posting error is (if there is one).  In the past, the speaker and its "Morse code" series of beeps was the only thing that gave you an indication on what kind of post failure you had.

Just passed memtest on all 4 sticks :-)

Next up is Windows 10.
That is a new world for me too.

I will get the Pro version because I want to shut off some of them spying and auto update features (GPU drivers most of all).

I will google for info obviously...and maybe ask Woody has some info too...but any pointers towards sites that hold info on installing Win10 are highly welcome.

The install is pretty straight forward.  I agree on doing your homework always!  My only two suggestions are:

1) If you are installing the OS onto a NVMe M.2 drive (highly recommended), don't have any other drives connected to the MB and use the Windows GPT format only so it allows full NVMe speed/support.  You will save yourself some potential miscues and headaches.  Connect your other SSDs and HDs only after the OS is safely installed on your system.

2) Install the chipset driver (reboot), then the SATA drivers (reboot), then your other drivers from the CD/DVD that came with your Maximus XII board, with a reboot after each driver install.

-- Oh, I have a third -- 3) update any drivers that may have newer versions than what you first install from the ASUS CD/DVD via the manufacture's (i.e. ASUS, Intel, Samsung, etc)  support site, and not via Windows update.

Its a pretty easy install.

Thanks Donovan.

Yes M.2 drive.
I have actually been using GPT on Win7 as well...with SSDs and HDDs

Reboots....checked!

All these years I thought it was really difficult to install Win10 without getting tricked into all all the dubious privacy breaches....but this video showed how simple it actually is...just turn it off during installation!

Corsair 150 pro xt AIO - Cpu Cooing
Corsair 850 HX Platinum PSU
Samsung SSD M.2
AND Computer case : Fractal Design XL7 Big samme as "Fly Happy"

Windows 10 Pro (full version? Retail?)

Any hints and tips to a good start??? 
I have read through the Outline a bit earlier when ordering parts
But this a brand new OS for me, and SSD config and and I just want the best possible start up experience 
I have at least BOUGHT ALL the recommended computer parts in theese threads and MOST OF ALL THE OUTLINE FOR THE 10900K BUILD!!
At first I am NOT aiming for clocked system 
JUST THE BEST UNCLOCKED SYSTEM as Nick setup for i7975 non clocked (ie the Best Bios Windows setup NON CLOCKED)
Thanks in advance ? EmbarrassedSmile

Flash the BIOS to 0607 and once you have done that, do not flash to another BIOS version thinking it would be best to update to the latest. 0607 has been proven to work. If it's not broken, don't fix it.

That board has 3 M.2's slots, can I only install 2 2TB SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS ? or do I have to follow the classic: 1 for FSX, 1 For storage, etc... I don't want any hdd's.

I haven't done the homework on M.2's yet but I am aware of the bandwidth share, also Nick said something about TRIM and "you also need to properly over provision each one", are they complicated to maintain?

Do you have to completely remove that cooler to clean the fans every couple of months?

Is there a monitor you guys would recommend to buy at this time?

Of course you can install two 2TB SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS if the board has three slots or how do you mean? One will probably disable a SATA port but you seem to understand that.

I've partioned a 1 TB SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS. One 120GB partition for the OS and the rest for Flight Simulator and some other stuff. And then I created an Over Provision partition with the recommended size with the Samsung Magician software. 

From what I understand Windows take care of TRIM automatically. I see mine was retrimmed 19 days ago.

I don't remove the cooler that often. Maybe once every two years or even less. I don't see much dust there. Maybe you live in another environment.

Not sure about monitors. It's been a while.

Here is a screen cap from disk management. The unallocated partion is the over provisioning partition.

Hey, Guys/gals ,keep the thread running!!! Smile 

Slowly progressing here, have not felt so terribly well the last month, getting all the parts collected got me exhausted, Ouch something is eating away my energy it feels like.. Shocked but slowly getting a bit fresher.. Confused

(and then I sold some parts to get back some much needed cash)


So yeah slow progress or start.. I think "a snail" is FASTER... LOL

I need some advice for Fractal XL-7 case fans setup ?
2 x 140mm in FRONT setup as intake fans ?
1 x 140mm REAR fan as exhaust ?

Btw I setup my radiator in a rear position with tubes coming down also in the back ? I see "Flyhappy" did that, so I tried to do "the same" as he's a Expert overclocker, and probably has a sound reason for dooing it that way, He did not mention HOW his rad fans is setup though... Embarrassed
I also took off the top panel, and replaced it with "the optional perforated drilled holes" panel so it's less restricting for airflow

How do I setup my 360mm corsair radiator fan setup? 
Should they drag WARM/HOT Air OUT OF the case? Or should they the 3x120mm fans DRAG IT INSIDE "THRU THE 360mm Rad" and then thru the 3x120mm fans and then BLAST IT OUT of the case via the REAR 140mm FAN ??

In the past we used the front to drag in COLDER AIR low to the floor and then blasted it out of the case in the REAR , im confused with taking in air higher up(less colder air?) on the case to then blast it ot out the back?

I do not have any side fans yet, they might be installed at a later point..IF NEEDED ?? Ermm of course for a hefty Overclock allcore 5.0ghz or more...

Thanks as always, kind regards from Norway Smile

I removed the radiator and swinged it around so the cooler lines are at the front of the case where the radiator is hottest and where the cold air from the front is coming in. The rad fans and the rear 140 are exhaust fans and the front fans and 200 mm side fans are intake fans. It sounds like you got a little burned out. Just take it easy and build up your energy again.

Hi thanks so much for the reply, Big smile
So then the fans PULL the hot Air THRU  Radiator and it exits on top on top of case ?You recommend I follow your "NEW picture" then? And not old one with lines in the back?
 That Noctua FRONT 120mm fan is a highperforming variant?? Or just a regular variant, any specific specs I need to look out for? I have a few fans laying around that I can shuffle around only 120mm though.. 

Thanks

Btw a few more questions ConfusedEmbarrassedEmbarrassed

AFTER HITTING F3 the first BOOTUP should I use "optimised defaults" in the ASUS BIOS? to get it to boot correctly from the M.2 drive ??

Also the MEM-check  software does that need to be formated a specific way first to run.. will the memcheck software download allow you to make that bootable checker test? 


its a 2 terrabyte M.2  drive, should I partition the windows install to 120-200GB ? As a MBT ? 
 I bought a windows 10(full version) retail? Its a USB I think..

. . . .

Btw another thing regarding our builds.. 
11900k and 12900k(Alder lake?) coming allready Shocked have we wasted our money on the 10900k build?? Ermm I HOPE NOT... !!! Would Our Motherboard support this new processors, ? Or is that LOST HOPE... ? This build has been an extreme expense(MY most expensive PC EVER..).. I hope its not COMPLETELY REPLACED with newer gen "that fast".... Shocked 
What do you guys think a about resizeable BAR support? Will that help our flightsim rigs...? 
Will we need a BIOS update up from 0607 then...? Ouch I would guess so(wouldn't that wreck the clocking beast)?

The fans are below the radiatior and PUSH the air through the radiator and out of the case.
This is the fan I mounted in the front:

Loading optimized defaults is fine. Then set your XMP profile to XMP1.

Confirm DRAM Voltage is automatically set to 1.5V and speed to 4000 MHz and the primary timings to 15-16-16.

Set CPU System Agent to 1.20V and VCCIO to 1.18V. Those were the voltages I needed to pass the default CPU settings (optimized defaults with the exception of XMP) in OCCT. System Agent and VCCIO voltages might come down later once you have moved on to the clock tests.  

I think the M.2 will be recognized automatically. I don't remember I had to change any settings for that.

Install one stick of RAM in A2 before proceeding with memtest. Once all sticks have passed, one at a time in A2, install all four sticks and run the test again.

Memtest86 Boot-disk Creation in Windows 
1. Download the MemTest86 free version USB image zip file. 
2. Extract the contents of the zip file to a directory 
3. Plug in the USB drive 
4. Launch the ImageUSB application included in the zip file 
5. Select your USB drive from the list. 
6. Select 'Write image to USB drive'  
7. If it is not already selected, select the included image file
8. Click 'Write' 
9. After accepting a few more prompts this should give you a working bootable USB drive

120-200GB OS partition seems reasonable to me. 
A GPT partition style was created automatically during the Windows installation.





Get your system up and running and forget about the new CPU's. It's inevitable new generations are released. It's gonna be years from now until you need to think about anything else than this system.

As usual following the guide to letter is a must! Get that memory will its still available. Here is the link to the guide:


thanks for sharing!
I'm definitely going to follow the guide and hopefully I will succeed!
