Updating cpu a7n8x x
4x8 GB at 4000MHz is more expensive than 2x16, but has a better chance at higher speed.
Or I could just go for one of the 3200MHz kits instead and not worry about overclocking it. Does the amount of modules, 2 vs 4, (let's say they all run at 3200 MHz) affect the possible max CPU overclock?
If you want to play it safe and you're stuck on 32GB go with 3200MHz - 3400MHz.
I was able to download the QVL list from the support page, as Nate says the 16gb modules are tougher to run at high speeds than the 8GB modules, on the Hero a 4X8 GB kit would have a better chance running those speeds than a 2X16GB kit Thank you both As usual it comes down to money vs speed I guess.
The drivers are included in the n Force Drivers eghernet no extra install necessary.
I have had no problems not to mention fast performance from this board, although the BIOS a7n8x-x ethernet have a little overclockability, it doesn’t give much, I think more for stability reasons than anything else. If the Ram permits, running aggressive timings will result in a performance increase.
Hi there, I am trying to find a memory QVL list for the Maximus X Hero (WI-FI AC) I ordered.
On the product page they direct me to asus.com, but I can't find any list there.
I like the a7n8x-x ethernet buffer that most integrated sound solutions dont have on cheaper boards, it takes some strain off the cpu while playing games when its enabled.
Based on the n Force2 chipset, Asus strips the original board of some features and sells it at an affordable cost.
