@Woschsubbn - I got Rev. 0009 for the M4 working, thanks for the help! It's super fast lol, LA KINGS FAN, you gotta get it too!

@LA KINGS FAN, did you notice out my "mod" on the Noctua SE12? I made it so i was able to fit a full sized ram heatsink in the closest slot next to the cooler
Yeah BUT you had the 120mm Noctua's ... and went down to what the 92mm ?
I'm already starting out with the 92mm my case isn't as WIDE as yours hence I don't have the HEIGHT needed for the taller CPU coolers I guess I could look into using the Noctua 80mm fan ? That would probably give me the clearance needed to reinstall the Vengeance heatsink on Slot #1 ... as it seems Cosair is draging their feet releasing the RED Vengeance LP's.

And YES I know I need to finish my build I'm still reading and learning the best way to setup the 128GB SSD and WIN7 and a secondary Storage HDD ... I've already done the complete redo TWICE using the 64GB SSD ... so this next time I only want to do it ONCE and not fill up the SSD drive with crap.

But congrats on your Rig it looks good.

And it refuses to install over the windows driver? I don't understand why Realtek would have to be installed first, only to be replaced by X-Fi.

* 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.
So after looking at these it seems like people either have a good luck or bad luck with them. Seems like they run pretty hot as well. I'm still debating on which one to get or even get the 560ti or something else. Any ideas?

Wow, sorry m8s but i've got to do plenty of work last weeks for i'm a freshman in a global it project now, so i'm not able anymore to be up to date with all posts and it's getting a bit quiet from my side. This will finish maybe until end of the year but this size of projects tend to take much longer, we'll see.

@UltraSwank: glad to hear that the fw 0009 update went fine to you!

In general no major updates happened for our mobo lately eh? I'm following this thread sometimes but there have been no updates yet.

No new updates that I have seen. We understand about being busy, so if you have a question and don't have time to do a search just ask, it should get answered. This goes for everyone, we need to help each other when we can. I believe LA Kings is keeping the OP up to date with new drivers, bios and what not, so that should help with some of the questions and needs.

Gentlemen,

May I join as well
The final build will take some more time, as I still need to purchase a graphics card.
And all these will go into a Silverstone FT03.

Hey guys, looks like I'm going to opt for this board, but need a bit of advice!

I'm going to install 1x570 gtx (MSI Twin Frozr III) and Ripjaws memory. What CPU cooler aftermarket wise will fit?

The Hyper 212+ is out of the equation as it's too tall, I believe the Big Shurikan is going to cover not only the memory slots but also the PCI-e slot(s).

So any recommendations on a decent aftermarket cooler that will let me clock a 2500k?

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the club!

Some of us ran the onboard graphics while we worked through decision making as to which graphics card to buy. LA_KINGS_Fan can help to get you added to the front page.

He will likely pitch the Saffire Toxic HD6950 as a good choice, too! His unlocked - I am still working to get mine installed...

Lots of Corsair Hydro Series coolers, H60, H80 and a few H100 systems. For the H60s, I suggest push/pull fan set-ups. I think there are some Hyper 212+ set-ups represented, too. If you post your system specifics (try the Quick Links" button at the top left of the page) it you will get more informed responses concerning air coolers, too.

Good luck with the build and welcome!
