Also how tight of a fit do your think it would be to stick a dual 140mm radiator in the top with the 2 fans? I'm not planning on doing all of this as that could possibly be overkill haha, just looking for my options for when I do build.
What's with the USB 3.0 pass through cables? Where on the onboard plugs, like USB 2.0?

Lets see the case is monstrous. The USB 3.0 cables was the 20 pin header must have been some old ones still in the mix going off the reviews on new egg. Let me see if I cant find a couple reviews that should give you a good idea on radiators and the like.

hey guys, perhaps I can get some asus maximum overclocking tips? I know going from msi to my amd ROG board it really aided in OC ability.

I just yesterday fired my system up with a 2500k from an 1100t amd and this thing seems almost too easy to overclock. Im working to get 4.8ghz stable but before I get too crazy I literally just set my memory up with the xmp profile at 1866mhz (4 dimms) and booted into windows 7 pro with 4.8ghz at 1.35vcore, in system asus software reports 1.360.

My first attempt at 1.31 dropped core 1 nearly immediatly, 1.33v dropped at 4 mins, I just booted with 1.35 but before I try any other prime stability I wanted to make sure I didnt need to ramp up cpu pll yet or anything, can I just keep climbing with voltage? at 4 mins with ambient at 74F cpu temps 52/59/56/57 aprox. Max I know was 59c though and core 0 was coolest, I will probably check the TIM before doing more stress testing too.

In the meantime Im going to be going over the SB overclocking threads as well, I have been studying a few yesterday and gonna review today.

Thanks

Go to first page of the thread and first post read through some of those guides. Follow them and if you have any issues then can tell us what you got going on. IT is very easy to overclock and need to decide if you want to offset overclock or regular overclock. Can go grom there with the guides. If you offset overclock and follow raja (asus) do not boot on auto always adjust it a bit then go from there. Auto is nuts.

EDIT:
Btw I wouldnt recommend soft clocking (software/windows). You will almost always have better results using the bios. The uefi bios are nice and easy mouse support and all. If you can print whichever guide you choose to follow out and go into bios set it up .. good luck and looking forward to your results

Nice. At the moment I may not be doing my build until May as it may be too distracting from my homework for school, haha. On a side note I may have just killed my sig rig while running prime blend... doh.gif rather odd thinking.gif
