Oh, thanks for letting me know. I think once it gets closer to me rebuilding i'll ask for more advice about what to buy etc.

hey guys, long time no see haha.

I figured I'd ask here since youve all helped me a ton in the past.

I'm running my i5 2500k @ 4.8GHz, and I love putting my computer to sleep overnight. Unfortunately, I think there's a BIOS setting I have enabled thats preventing sleep.
I think its the PLL Overvoltage setting or something like that. Asus recommends it on when running the CPU at insane speeds or something. is it really necessary for me to enable this, or can I set it to auto or off so I can put the PC to sleep?

I doubt that's the issue. More than anything it's probably something really stupid and annoying like Window's "feature" that's automatically on to "allow wake" on Lan. Which means any time your router or modem pings the NIC, your PC will turn on. With some builds, for whatever reason, this will prevent it from sleeping no matter what until you turn it off.

If you're using Vista/Windows 7
Control Panel>System and Security> Power Options
Choose "Change when my computer sleeps" from the left hand side.
And turn off Wake from LAN.

It's a bug with this board from what I've read, I have the same problem sometimes. When you do a new overclock more than likely it will happen.

I tried that, but it doesn't help. Just the screen will sleep, fans still spinning...

No it'll sleep, everything shuts off like normal, but I can't wake it. I need to do a reset to wake it up...

Just got my switch 810 gunmetal . I am planing on doing push pull with crossair h100i replacing the stock crossair fans with 4 120mm cougar fan. Can any one please tell me what screws do I use with that .

Just a bit of a note: if you are using an SSD you shouldn't be using sleep since it wears out the NAND faster.

I may be misinformed, but I thought it was just hibernation that degraded the SSD more quickly. This being that during hibernation the active data is written to the C drive (or wherever you have chose to send the hibernation info) while sleep merely "suspends to RAM" and basically only keeps the RAM active and shuts down most of the rest of the system. If this is true then sleep does no damage to you SSD whatsoever. In fact it may help sustain it longer since the system isn't active while sleeping.

The fans are the same 25mm height, right ? Doesn't the h100i come with screws ? Generally, the screws needed are 6/32 30mm or 1 1/8" screws

Spidey is right. Sleep mode is S3 sleep:

"S3 (traditional Standby, with the CPU off and RAM in slow refresh), S4 (Hibernate, with the hardware off and system memory saved as a temporary file)"

I've read PLL enabled disable the use of S3 sleep, so I didnt know if it was a necessary setting to have turned on, since I like to put my PC to sleep overnight?
