Hello,
I would like to ask if anyone of you using this board has managed to obtain readings, most important fan speeds, from the IT8790E LPC.

Actually this board is equipped with 2 LPCs, one IT8620E and another IT8790E controller.
The IT8790E handles the CPU, CPU_OPT and SYS_FAN1 headers.

Hardware Sensors LPC plugin works fine with the IT8620E chip but does not even detect the second controller.
Thx.

Hi spballer!
Did you do the USB fix for this board?
I know there are guides around but my head spins a bit in how to implement.
Currently only one of my ports will do USB3 speeds and the rest just operate as USB2.
Anyone using this board with some tips would be awesome! :)

Android,
I have my old gaming machine - same board, same CPU as this build!
Going to attempt a hackintosh build.
Got a 1050ti that's been sitting on the shelf which will hopefully work great with this build.

Keep updated on how it goes.

Hi guys,

Sorry to bump this post. I built my computer following this guide years ago.

Recently, my motherboard broke, and I am looking to buy a new one. However, the motherboard (GA-Z97-MX-GAMING5) is no longer sold where I live...

Is there any other motherboard I can buy that will work with my build?
