This was most probably said,but if i put those 2x32gb cucial in the x99e-itx/ac pared with let say a e5-2690 v4 and a high end gpu shoud i be expecting some bottlenecking or decreased performance thanks to the dual channel memory?+2 ssd (its a workstation).
On the topic of X99 builds with the Noctua C14...This cooler is amazing!
Temps are around high 50s to low 60s under synthetic loads with a 120W E5 V3 chip. With real tasks I don't think that it'll ever break 55.
... and yet my 4790K (TDP = 88W) ramps up to 100 C the moment I start Prime95 's "Small FFT" torture test. Apparently, this was a known issue with is processor when it first came out. Something about motherboards using power settings that are too high and the terrible thermal compound under the heatspreader. Sigh.
BTW, great looking build.
Has anyone else noticed that audio from the front panel connection is much louder than from the I/O line-in? I thought it was supposed to be the same, but there is definitely a difference in volume, and possibly in quality/composition of the sound. I know the motherboard is supposed to have a headphone amp, and I am using Sennheisers that can benefit form it, and I think I am getting amplification from the front audio, but not from the I/O. Is the amp on the front panel only? Anyone have information on this?
I don't have this motherboard, but I am interested in it.
On the website for this motherboard, if you scroll down on the Overview page you will see the following paragraph:
So the amplifier is applied to the rear ports, which is contrary to your observation. Could it be that the settings for the rear ports are not set correctly or the amplification is not turned up enough?TI® NE5532 delivers high definition audio to every headphone. Being the first one to add a headphone amplifier to the rear I/O line-out jack, this motherboard not only improves soundstage depth, but also enhances low frequency (20Hz) bass effects up to 10 times.
I use the back 3.0s for charging my peripherals.the 4gb stick would normally be fine - has it ever had a bios update?
On a different note, does anyone know which USB ports provide the most power for charging my phone?
OK, dumb question - for those of you who did the Noctua C14S build in the Ncase M1 - how did you fit the fan? Mine extends out the side of the chassis by like 3-4 mm?
When I insert my headphones into a connector with amplification (on my board specifically the front port through header) it brings up a dialog box asking me what type of output device it is. If I choose "headphones", it will do an impedance check (and pop loudly). So if you don't have this kind of behavior on the back when you plug in the headphones when Windows is at your desktop screen (not during boot or before login), you might have to reinstall the Realtek drivers from ASRock, look for an update on the ASRock website.Thanks. Well, I have the latest drivers from the ASRock App, and I also have the Realtek HD Audio Manager app (which is awful), and I don't see a setting anywhere to turn things up anymore than the regular Windows volume control will allow me. The rear line-in is definitely not as loud, in fact it's less loud than my MacBook Pro, and I don't think the lattert comes with amplification. It's borderline not loud enough to properly rock out, which is why I use the front. The front also sounds properly amplified, not just louder. The bass is deeper, the sound is crisper at the higher volume, it sounds like amplification. I have the Sennheier 558 headset, which doesn't benefit a ton from amp, but you can tell a difference. Maybe I am wrong though... I'd definitely appreciate input from others. I'm probably doing something wrong.

I hate the drivers too but otherwise no headphone amp functionality.
I have an Asus VII Impact, like it says in my signature below my posts.
WARNING - CROSS POST INBOUND…
Alright, thoughts towards the following build in a finalized Hutzy XS (w/ 'custom' FSP 500w 80+ Platinum Flex-ATX PSU)…
ASRock X99E-ITX/ac MB
Intel i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-core 3.3GHz CPU
Dynatron T318 copper / vapor chamber CPU cooler (27mm height)
Cryorig XT140 140mm slim PWM fan (13mm height)
G.Skill NT Series 16GB (2 x 8GB DIMMs) SDRAM DDR4 2133 CAS 15
Intel 600p 512GB M.2 / PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 mITX OC GPU
That would be cool but I really dont think it would be possible to cool a i7-5820K. I'm struggling to find much information about the Dynatron T318, do you know of any reviews?
So I would say it could be done, just a matter of fan noise when cooling properly…?
It may not be exactly practical, but it would sure be cool…!!!
If I'm not switching to Zen, I'm planning on using a T318 when my Dan A4 shows up. In his testing, Dan found the Noctua A9x14 was the best fan for the Dynatron T318. It's not extensive testing, but without overclocking or maybe a moderate oc at low ambient temps, a 5820K should be fine.
Yeah but it's still just a Realtek ALC 1150 chip and the Realtek drivers alone also works, but not the headphone amplification detection. Or atleast I don't remember it working correctly. I don't use any of the other software, just the modified Realtek driver Asus provides.
