I have ASRock X79 Extreme4-M mobo. All working fine with build until I install ASUS PCE-N15 wireless network card. When I turn on it shows the windows 7 logo for about 10 seconds then goes straight to BSOD. I took the card out installed the drivers and reinstalled the card and it does same thing again. Machine works fine when I remove the card, BSOD when I put it back in? I tried moving my GPU to the second PCI-E slot and installed the wireless card in slot 1 instead of slot 2 but still get BSOD.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

I've actually run into the exact same problem with my ASUS PCE-N15. The motherboard I'm using is an EVGA X79 Dark. I've had the same symptoms of the system freezing/BSODing as the operating system was loading. And I've done this on both Ubuntu and Windows 8 Pro. The wireless card doesn't appear to be defective because it works perfectly fine on my Z68 motherboard.

My conclusion is that the PCE-N15 dislike the Intel X79 chipset.
