Well I think so but someone else was telling me the same on another forum so I think I will check that again. Win7 could have fooled me if it has the good basic driver.

Thanks for making me doubt!

oops I went back to read what case you had but I think I read the wrong post, I thought you had a FT-02 but now I see you haven't specifiec in what case you plan to put all this.

Sorry, I cannot tell you about the backplate of this cooler.

Hi all my board has just arrived and the box is damaged and dirty and not sealed ! Opening it up and looking at it, it looks like it has been opened before( the case sticker is bent, no x fi sticker and it generally looks like it has been rummaged around in) anyone else had any problems. Going to return it for a new one but just thought id ask cheers.

How do you know that the backplate can't be installed? Didn't you post a picture specifically with it installed?

My box wasn't "sealed", but I am not aware of any of them being sent out or received any differently. My case sticker was slightly bent, too, from moving around in the box during shipment, I suspect. I don't care about it though. Many of us with early receipt of this board received units without the Xfi sticker, but again, most of us don't care. If you want one, you can visit the ROG Forum board and request one. Some members of this forum have done so and there are links on earlier pages to follow (good luck).

Damaged and dirty would bother me more than anything else. But it could have been the shipper that caused that. Even though there was a train derailment involved in my delayed delivery, my box arrived in absolutely perfect shape and the contents were clean - you should be able to expect undamaged contents, etc. too.

Might be worth a call to customer service before returning it to see what they might do for you in leau of a return ($)...

Guess the only good Z68 option would be the ATX version which is sooooooooooooo much more expensive :X
Just because something doesn't meet your needs doesn't make it a fail. I wouldn't buy a Smartcar then complain that it doesn't have the space to fit all my friends for a roadtrip, or haul furniture home from Ikea.

Your needs seem quite specific and you need to select a board that meets those needs. That is why they sell a wide variety of boards with a wide variety of features and options.
