here is what happened when I was trying to remove the graphic card, I though I unlocked the clip and push it untill the end but apparently it didn`t, applied little force then the clip just broke!,

I wonder if it can be replaced, doesn`t look its build into the pcie expansion slot.

its no big deal but it kinda buggs me to see such small thing broken especially when everything is great with the build frown.gif

It's easily fixed. At least u didn't rip off the entire pcie slot like i did. Still deciding whether it's worth $120 to fix that board since that slot will never be used.

frown.gif sorry to hear that, I guess you had worst luck than me, 120$ is no little, but when you spend like 450$ on a motherboard you expect your build to be perfect otherwise you wouldn`t spend such amount on pc components in the first place.
if I were you and living in the USA I would simply sell this one for about 250$ or so add more money and buy a brand new one, cuz am sure fixing it won`t make it as good as new, cuz there will be welding involved, but if by fixing you mean RMA and sending you a refurbished or a new board instead for the extra 120$ then its a different story.

Doesn't really bother me since I have 3 of them, but I suppose I'll get around to sending it in some time, but bc the board I'm using is in perfect condition there's really no reason to jump right on it. Really sucks you can't get it fixed easily. Asus seems to be a pain to deal with over these boards for some reason anyway.

This is starting to look like it might be little issue with these boards. I got my board cheap (£210) second hand because this had happened to the previous owner. I haven't looked for the thread yet but I also recall recently reading about someone else this has happened to.

I managed to remove the broken piece on mine but it wasn't easy. I got a screw driver in to the gap above the clip and twisted it open slightly. I had to use, what would be considered on a mother board, quite a bit of force. I was nearly at the point of giving up through fear of damaging it when I just managed to squeeze it out. Should be much easier getting a new one in.

I haven't looked around or tried to source a new one yet but the way I see it the only way to get one would be to contact ASUS (If I recall the previous guy I mentioned did this but said they weren't being very helpful) or buy a spares or repairs board. It doesn't have to be a Rampage. I have had a quick look and most (if not all) use the same clip. The only problem may be getting a bright white one. I've not looked closely into it but I think a lot are like an off white. Could be wrong though.

I will PM you when and if I ever source one. Could you do likewise please.

P.S. When installing for the first time I made a bit of an error. What lanes run at what speed has never been something I have had to think of. When I building this, having never owned anything this extreme before, I just assumed that both the top lanes would be x16. So with that in mind I installed my card into lane 2. Had a flick through the manual a short while after and to my horror I found that lane 2 only runs at x8 doh.gif

To correct it I'd have to reinstall the whole cooling system because my pipes are cut to perfect length. So I haven't bothered yet (a month later). Its not like it makes any noticeable difference in games but it does make a marginal difference in benchies.

I managed to remove the broken piece on mine but it wasn't easy. I got a screw driver in to the gap above the clip and twisted it open slightly. I had to use, what would be considered on a mother board, quite a bit of force. I was nearly at the point of giving up through fear of damaging it when I just managed to squeeze it out. Should be much easier getting a new one in.
I haven't looked around or tried to source a new one yet but the way I see it the only way to get one would be to contact ASUS (If I recall the previous guy I mentioned did this but said they weren't being very helpful) or buy a spares or repairs board. It doesn't have to be a Rampage. I have had a quick look and most (if not all) use the same clip. The only problem may be getting a bright white one. I've not looked closely into it but I think a lot are like an off white. Could be wrong though.
I will PM you when and if I ever source one. Could you do likewise please.
P.S. When installing for the first time I made a bit of an error. What lanes run at what speed has never been something I have had to think of. When I building this, having never owned anything this extreme before, I just assumed that both the top lanes would be x16. So with that in mind I installed my card into lane 2. Had a flick through the manual a short while after and to my horror I found that lane 2 only runs at x8 doh.gif
To correct it I'd have to reinstall the whole cooling system because my pipes are cut to perfect length. So I haven't bothered yet (a month later). Its not like it makes any noticeable difference in games but it does make a marginal difference in benchies.
smile.gif thank you for your long and detailed reply, I have contacted asus as well and currently waiting for their reply for the 2nd time, I have found few motherboards on ebay that have the white clip ( motherboards for parts) this idea poped into my head as well and there are some that are as low in price as 55-60$, unfortunatly I live outside usa and my country is not listed on paypal, so I have no mean of purchasing used stuff on ebay, another idea that came to my head is to purchase a new asus motherboard whenever the budget allows for the home pc that costs 90-110$, and take the clip from it, this way it will be a win win situation. but lets be honest here you won`t even notice the broken clip at all especially when the graphic card is in the top lane.

I will update when asus replies to me, I think we should gather all together and open a new thread for asus broken pcie clips rolleyes.gif
