Thanks for the update guys. Well I won't be able to double up on the card in the NZXT Vulcon case then. What GPU would you guys recommend? I'll have to double check the measurements but the allowed room is about 9.5" or less.

The Auto Tuning 'EXTREME' button option is about as simple as it gets, push the button and everything is done automatically for you, even the system stability test reboots, and I think it gave my set-up the 4.6+ MHz OC ? so basically the same as doing the Rhialto 4 step OC method

IF you have SOME CLUE what you're doing OC'ing though (I don't ) you might want to use the BIOS advanced options, and you would certainly need to use that or the ROG connect option to get into the extreme benchmarking type of OverClocking of 5.0 MHz and above.


BTW .... WOW 300 pages already, and the board has only been out for TWO and a half months ... this is one popular and active little MoBo group!

i'm running on air with a zalman CNP9500 at the moment. i did the 4.6 autotune, and bumped up the bclk to 102.1, so i'm sitting at 4.7 atm, with cpu core temps ranging form 36 to 44, speedstep disabled: are these core temps/clock speed too high, for a daily driver, for my present hsf?

I guess I'd go with one the MSI 560ti's @ 9.37" x 4.37" x 1.46" ...

* I was looking at this card and think highly of it, but the TOXIC was the same price for better performance and came with 2 free games, plus the chance at unlocking to a 6970 made it a no brainer for me, too bad it won't fit in your case.

Rhialto, Not everyone has a Facebook account... or uses Facebook!
Kvjavs, we should add it to the list of reviews on page one!
