Hello All. Finally took a couple of snaps of my UD3. I added the small fan on the NB heatsink when I removed it to re-seat it using icDiamond TIM and getting rid of the "spring holders". I was reading about the heat of the NB on this thread and while checking my heatsink by finger, the darn thing pushed downn raising the other end. Not secure at all in my book.
So...Off With It's Head...and back on with a spinning hat. Very easy to do. The fan is a little pcu Intel one that I had in my box of goodies. I snipped the shroud down to the minimum needed and just lined it up center and drilled a hole in the proper place for the left screw. The screw is screwed directly into the heatsink after drilling that hole also through the top 2 "horizontal fins. This was actually enough to hold the fan securely, but I added the silver small right bolt and globbed in some GOOP to make a "bridge" to the far right fin to hold that side secure also because the plastic on the fan is very brittle from age or whatever, so just precautionary. Different fans, different methods for sure.
The VRM zone fan was easy also. Put a proper length bolt and nuts in the bottom left screw hole and GOOP"ed it to the USB 3.0 casing and followed with GOOP on the top left to the USB 2.0 casing and a "dob" on the heatsink.
Had to use 3.5 jacks for connections seiing it was all I had and wanted to get it over with.
I'm not sure what to check the temps with. Have AIDA64 and have heard that "Motherboard" is the NB, but not sure about that.

I am getting her ready for Piledriver, whatever the outcome is with it. Currently impressed with this fill-in "Phenom" 840 x 4 for $60. I will be getting one of the Corsair water cooling solutions with PD.
Anyway, I love my UD3
