Motherboard warping?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I took the sides off of my brother's case to steal one of his fans (it wasn't doing an good. Looked at the back of the motherboard and noticed that there was some SERIOUS warping around the CPU.

He's using the Hyper tx3 with the standard AMD mount (built in plastic mount), a Phenom x3 720BE, and an ASrock 880GM-LE.

Is this normal without a backplate?

I Had a as-rock 775 board and that warped due to heat on the cpu socket area. Its not good, It could eventually effect the way the heat-sink sits on the cpu. I would maybe look at getting something with a back plate to stop it warping more.

Any suggestions for a back plate that works with a TX3? Needs to be cheap.

The stock AMD backplate is strong enough to hang an NH-D14 off of. I wouldn't be worried about the strength of it. Now if heat is warping the motherboard, that is a whole different issue

You obviously haven't dealt with ASUS customer service haha. Not to start a flame war but it's pretty atrocious. And I do love my ASUS board

I totally agree with this. They need something to compete with the UD3. I'm torn between the UD3 and the Sabertooth now, with the ASrock Extreme 4 as a wild card
