I don't mind having on-chip graphics because it should disable it as soon as you install a graphics card, and if something ever happens to the card, you aren't left without anything to output graphics. Plus, the Intel HD 4000 graphics has Quick Sync II which encodes videos faster than any standalone graphics card.

I don't think any LGA2011 boards come with on board graphics . He has a i7-3930K processor.

They do not.....I was just saying on-chip/board graphics have some advantages. But no, Socket 2011 has none of that.

A trivial point: not a floppy connector. It's a 4 pin Molex, as used for IDE hard drives and optical drives.

I mention that only because some power supplies lack floppy cables.

I was thinking the floppy connector wasn't right, and I was going to check the ROG specs.......you beat me to it. Also, for people that weren't around when floppy drives were mainstream.....the connector is called a Berg connector.

The ASUS P8Z77 boards can run the onboard graphics at the same time as a GPU.

Yes, my Z77 Sabertooth will use both, but most people stop using the onboard graphics when they install a standalone card. Unfortunately, quite a few people have issues with the Lucid Virtu MVP software.

When I meant by floppy connector I meant to say the power cable for the floppy drive . Which is the molex cable . The Toughpower Grand Series have them .

The connector I am referring to is the white pin connector EZ_Plug2 on top of 6-pin PCI-E power port . Which only fits the floppy drive for power .

Here is an illustration of various PSU connectors (many legacy):


The second connector from the left on the top row is a molex connector. The one to the right of the molex connector is a floppy connector. That is the one that goes in the white connector on the MOBO pictured above. What is probably confusing people is some of the ASUS LGA 2011 boards have a molex connector such as this one (look at right corner of the board):

There is no image just to let you know. I know what goes in the board. I have it .
