@s2000Gan how is that CPU cooler working for you? I heard the Corsair Vengeance are a little "tall" and might interfere with the cooler, and some people recommended me to get the G SKill ones because of the lower dimensions, any truth to this?

Vengeance also comes in low profile modules

Im ordering some Red LED fans so ill probably take pics whenever those arrive
Also going to get a Graphics card backplate

And im also having the problem where the computer refuses to resume from sleep while OC'd
I have PLL Overvoltage disabled and when I try to wake it all the fans and everything starts up but tI dont get any video out signal to my monitors
Just change your power profile to high performance in control panel to disable sleep.

Yeah the Vengeance sticks are kinda tall so im using slots 2 and 4 rather than 1. Whats kinda is that the vengeance spreaders are just barely too tall (the fan on the EVGA cooler blocks slot 1 barely)

Just got my "Refurbished" board from an amazon seller....

Cat hair all over it, 4 bent pins and 2 dead ram slots.

Can it get any better than this?

hey so i ran into a couple of issues of size... so i had to swap around some parts for diff new ones, so once that's all settled, ill post finalized pics. but i recently ran into a prob, upon reboot or a turn on/off, the mobo will give the debug code 98 "console input devices connect" , so im assumin that means that my keboard/mouse arent being recognized? so what happens is, itll just sit at the ROG logo boot screen for a min or 2, then itll like reflash on the screen and fix itself... then itll go to windows. any idea on whats wrong/how to fix? would resetting cmos help?

IMO, the only cards that should create any issue like this are the 3 slotters ... or if there's a 2.5 slotter that also hangs low ... but most GPU's I think will clear the connectors and Power/reset button area.

A standard 2 slot GPU card in PCI-e slot 2 should still have about 3-5 mm of clearance before you run into the connectors and Power/reset button area.

Look through the thread there's some pictures of people SLI'ng 580's, 570's, etc.
