    Question ThunderFX and Windows 8

    Recently purchased a Maxiumus V Formula / ThunderFX and am running Windows 8 Pro x64 from my MSDN subscription.
    All working fine except the ThunderFX. I cannot find any Windows 8 drivers at:
    http://rog.asus.com/motherboard/form...mulathunderfx/
    and the Windows 7 x64 drivers do not install, not even in Windows 7 compatibility mode.

    Am I looking in the wrong place or do I just need to wait a while?

    Hey, did you already run the windows 7 driver in compatibility mode?

    Rightclick on the setup, properties, compatibility>compatibilty mode windows 7.

    Hope that will help you.

    As I mentioned in my original post, I already tried using the Windows 7 compatibility mode (without success). This results in a "platform not supported" message (or something very similar).

    You may need to wait a little while. Win8 is supposed to be due out soon, so i'm guessing the software you need will either follow shortly after...or is close to being released. Unfortunately it's gonna be a waiting game for you

    Yeah, that "Windows 8 Ready" sticker on the box is starting to bug me.

    Sorry guys the recent software versions have had unforseen critical bugs which required us to do further testing. I've been told the latest round of testing will be finished by Weds so we'll know then!
