    Thanks for the opinion and those links. It seems the move from a 2500K to a 6600K can give about a 10% boost. I don't know anything if using an SSD for the OS in regards to any performance uptake. Do...

    Gents,

    Thanks for the input. I'm quite Geeky and have built / rebuilt about 50 Boxes for Friends and Family as a hobby in the last decade or so. But I'm not a Gamer as I stopped playing games...

    Z87-A USB 3 connections driving me Crazy!

    Gents,

    I've been putting this off for ages and I can't seem to find the right spot to tweak. Every time I plug in a USB 3 Thumb Drive or portable hard drive a small window pops up in Win 7 64 bit....

    Hey Auwingyin,

    Then try the process posted above. It works! ;)

    Hi Raja,

    I'm happy to say the new version seems to be working. :cool:

    I completely removed the old version of program in Win 7, rebooted into safe mode, ran the Cleaner - then installed the new...

    Hi Raja,

    Thanks for being persistent.

    As far as using each version for what works that does sound like an interesting work around. I didn't know AI Suite 3 could write back to the UEFI as I...
  8. Hi Raja, Your post got me to remember how to...

    Hi Raja,

    Your post got me to remember how to do it on the later version (1.00.51). I can't do it on the version that came with the disk AI Suite3 version 1.00.50 - the Name box doesn't pop-up....
  9. HiVisMan, Have you tried the old version and...

    HiVisMan,

    Have you tried the old version and figured out how to rename the Fans yet?
  10. Now if I could only rename the Fans

    millerdude,

    I too am miffed with Asus, but I don't think you'll find another OEM that's better. (Perhaps a sad commentary on the industry these days) Just a few years ago EVGA stepped up and...

    HiVisMan,

    I await your input. I'm actually a real fan of Asus and have been recommending / purchasing many of their MBs over the last decade or so as I do IT for Family and Friends as a hobby. I...

    Gents,

    Sebastain posted a fix for a similar issue I had on this thread with a Z-87-A (Thanks Again!)
    ...
  13. Thanks for the assist.

    HiVisMan,

    As Sebastain pointed out in post #7, (thanks again!) going to the latest version is what causes AI Suite 3 to fail when using it for overclocking => which was the issue that caused me...

    HiVisMan,

    I've installed the original off the Asus DVD => AI Suite3 version 1.00.50 (at least that's the File name.)

    Thanks for the assist.
  15. HiVizMan, Thanks for the tip but my Z87-A...

    HiVizMan,

    Thanks for the tip but my Z87-A with AI Suite 3 doesn't have that screen. I wish I hadn't forgot.

    Dam it gets me mad :mad: there's no instruction manual for AI Suite 3. Any idea why...

    HiVizMan,

    Thanks for the tip but I can't find the Bar mentioned. Here's the AISuite3 Screen with a Fan selected.

    It strange I had no problem with the newer version of AISuite3. I just...

    Gents,

    This is a bit stupid, but I can't seem to remember how to rename the Fan Headers in AISuite3's Fan Expert2. Can you advise?

    Thanks for the assist.
  18. Sebastain=>This works => you are Awesome !!

    Sebastain,

    Thanks again for the post. This works => you are Awesome!!

    I didn't quite get as good an OC as your Box - but I'm thrilled.

    (4.7 GHz on two Cores & 4.6 GHz on two cores.)

  19. If this works you are Awesome...

    Sebastain,

    Thanks for the post. If this works you are Awesome. And the lack of Asus Support is unbelievable! I'll go check it out and advise. Unfortunately I'm off to dreamland as I've got a plane...
  20. Thanks again for the reply, but doing a simple...

    Thanks again for the reply, but doing a simple O/C is not really the answer. The issue is I paid money to Asus for Ai Suite III to do this via their software in Windows, and they've failed to...

    Thanks, that's what I thought.

    Maybe I'll get another 128 Gig Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme and build a Raid for the OS partition instead on my Z87-A.

    Regards,

    This may be a silly question, but is there any benefit, and is it even allowed, to use Intel Smart Response Technology with an SSD already containing the OS partition in place? In other words have a...

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I was hooked on this software by the Videos JJ posted with various sites on You Tube. It's seems almost too easy to ignore - at least to establish baseline settings for...
  24. Z87-A - Overclocking Failure - Access Violation at Address 00451314 - in AI Suite3

    Gents,

    Here's my first post here so please be gentle. I purposely bought a Z87-A as soon as NCIX got them here (June 23rd) based mostly on good prior experiences with Asus well featured MBs and a...
