    Right, and the RAM sticks on the original QVL become unobtainable. You have to find memory with similar enough specs so there's a good chance of it working.

    On the longevity of motherboards, I...

    Hello everyone! It is nice to see so many Rampage V Extremes out there still at work everyday (like mine). It would be a bad time to have to build a new system right now. Is the R5E turning out to be...

    Sorry you are still having this problem. Maybe RedSector3 was onto something with the suggestion that the old 960 and new 970 SSD are set up differently perhaps with respect to legacy booting (with...

    I also looked for a PCIE card that would provide USB 2.0 headers but could not find any. Let us know if the USB 3.0-to-USB 2.0 adapter will provide a working solution for front panel or OC Panel. ...

    Wow, so we have arrived to a time when motherboards no longer have USB 2.0 headers, like your Maximus VIII Impact. It may be a long shot but for about $10 US you can buy an adapter cable that will...

    Hi Xeromist, and thanks for your comment.

    I think you are right in that mobos today have at least two M.2 sockets with heat sinks that share real estate with PCIE slots.

    Why so few PCIE slots? Why so few anything?

    How come recent motherboards have fewer PCIE slots?

    The SAGE Workstation boards (LGA2066 X299) have lots of PCIE slots but most other Intel and AMD boards have only 4 or sometimes 5 slots...

    Code B2 means "Legacy Option ROM Initialization". That code may not refer to the BIOS chip because you already swapped BIOS1 and BIOS2 and installed a replacement BIOS chip. Besides you...
