Hello guys! I bought this motherboard over the weekend so should be here Monday morning. smile.gif But i was just wondering, if i remove the heat sink that is covering the VRM's and the chipsets, will i void my warranty?

I want to remove them to replace the thermal paste with some of my Noctua stuff because my old ASUS Crosshair II Formula had dry paste.

I will post some pics and join the club once its installed and running. smile.gif

PS how easy is it to overclock RAM on this motherboard? Check this link for my question

Also one last thing, i know the coloured SATA ports run on a different chipset or something from the other 2 black ports, what difference does it make if i'm not using any raid arrays or anything and just using 2 hard drives 1 SSD and 1 DVD drive??

ok, so i droped my CPU OC down to stock and started playing with the NB.... is there any reason it wouldnt be stable after i bumped the CPU back up? or is my CPU just not as stable as i though? or would it be best to just start from scratch.... man im sounding like such a n00b right now >.>

I have 2 ODDs also, I put them in the SATA 6 Gb/s connectors # 5, and #6. You can set them separately to IDE mode and still have #1-4, be in AHCI and or RAID mode for the HDDs.

This allows you to disable the Jmicron controller and not have that extra time in booting while the Jmicron looks for drives! Who wants a longer boot time?

Plug them all in the colored connector, not the black Jmicron one, just put the ODD on #5 or #6. See above answer.

I have also disabled the Jmicron controller, but i have connected the DVD and DVD recorder in Sata #2 and #3 both in AHCI mode. Is this right or do you think i might problems?

You are welcome.

You must submit a CPU-Z validation using your OCN user name on the submission. See the first post.

Here is what mine looks like, so add me again. I was on the list at some point.

hey guys, sorry if this has been asked already, but is there a guide floating around on how to set up a raid 0 array with our motherboards. i know the concequences of the raid 0 but i have an image backup, so im not worried if something happens. i want to pick up another 60gb force gt and pair it with the one i already have.

thanks in advance for the assistance.

If anyone is in the mood for answering another raid question ... I am using the legacy raid drivers, three pairs of SSD's in raid0 - largest is two 128GB drives. In the Bios - I set everything up in legacy raid mode (default) - should I have used UEFI mode??

Oh i see, here is my validation link: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2075433

And here is the banner:

PS, when i was looking at the 1st link i posted, it showed my CPU is running at 3.6GHz instead of 3.4GHz? Has my motherboard overclocked the CPU on its own?

What are some good signs your power supply is maxed out? The voltages not being what they should (ex 12v=11.68 or 5.5v=4.4)?
