Oh man Zlot, I'm so sorry...I was afraid that was the issue. Hopefully you bough tthe board at a retail store and not online...and if its a store i hope they allow you to exchange it.

Just got one of these today - Two issues, one is minor one isn't as much.

1. Is there a special bracket needed to install a hyper 212+ on this board? the bracket I had would not fit no matter how I adjusted it. Had to use stock cooler to get it up and running

2. What is every setting I need to change to disable speed step? I've disabled it from the CPU Power Management in BIOS, done so in memory settings telling my processor to be minimum of 100%, yet it still alternates between 1600 and 3800 Mhz (38x 100 are my current OC settings for stock cooler, auto everything else).

Besides that, very very nice board. I don't know if I can ever buy a different model for a while.

Hey All!

I gotta say I love this motherboard to death! However, I have run into an issue with the CPU heat sink. The stock intel's heat sink has bent pins and intel wont send me a replacement because "they don't warranty physical damage". Now, I have a warranty through Micro Center for the CPU, but if they wont replace it I need to get an aftermarket one.

As I've read from a few of you its a tight squeeze with this board. You guys have any suggesstions?

I was looking at A H60 (H100 barely fits in this case from reviews) from Corsair, not gonna do too much of a extreme OC.

Noc, i think it would be best to let the CPU down clock itself like that. Not only will it save power, decrease heat out put, but it will also increase the life span of your cpu. I would be concerned if your CPU maintained a high clock with full voltage....

to be honest I'm not sure that there is an option to keep it at stock or overclocked frequency.

stormless, I'd think about an h80 if it fits. You didn't mention what CPU you're getting but if its IB you want something that will manage the heat well. IB tends to produce alot more heat than SB even at stock. Its just the way the die is.

Thanks for the Reply Blatsz32! I was admiring your Rig..truly a work of art! haha...and your guess about the IB was dead on man! 3570k...really not big on those stock heatsinks AT ALL! So, if an H80 will fit, its a go!

Again, thanks much!

I have installed that very cooler on this beautiful board 2 days ago with no issues whatsoever. The plate that came in the box is just fine. Here's how it should be placed on the back of the board:

Actually mine is set to a static voltage keeping me at 4500 ghz 100% of the time. I believe you have to set your voltage to manual ... mine is set to 1.21 and my offest is set to 0.00 I believe. Try something like this and let me know if it works for you.

The reason I did that was to see what my stable voltage would be at 4500 ghz. When I have time I'm going to manually set a negative offset and see how low I can get the voltage at idle.


Blatsz, that is a good looking dog!

I tested the memory setup, and it would seem that B1 and B2 are both working correctly for me.

I ordered the board from Newegg.com less than 30 days ago, so I was able to RMA it through them for (what they say will be) a brand new retail part. Rather than have to deal with getting the board repaired by ASUS.

Thank you for all your help everyone! This issue was really starting to drive me nuts. lzepplin01: Good luck with your RMA, I hope you get everything squared away soon.

I also ran into that problem when I was OCing. It would fluctuate like crazy for no reason. The way I disabled it was by turning off all the C1E states and all of those other states in the BIOS. I can't think of the names of all of them, but basically I have all of the power states turned off. I believe C1E was the last one I turned off before it stopped fluctuating. Hope this helps.

I set my system up but I totally forgot about the 2 turbo fans coming with the motherboard.

 

I cant install the one on the top since my soundcard is there, but i Can install the on on the rear.

 

DO i need to take out my motherboard to install it or can i install it as it is.

 

I couldnt really get it from the manual.
