I couldnt really get it from the manual.

By rear do you mean the one near the I/O panel? If so, hmm maybe you could just slide the mobo out of the I/O panel and install the fan while the mobo is in your system. If you have enough room you can try that, but I would take the mobo out and install it.

Hey guys, this is my first time running Prime95...i usually just run AIDA64....what settings do I select and/or how do I run the best stress test to see if my OC is stable?? New to this software so a bit confused. Thanks.

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.
There is a way to disable that down clocking, but I tend to agree that it would do more harm than good.

You'll get 1000 different answers for this but I usually just run prime blend for an hour or two if you have the time and then game on it. If I am overclocking the cards then its prime blend and Kombustor at the same time for an hour then game.

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.

Well that's good news! RMAing through Newegg is MUCCCHHHH better than via ASUS. My board has been out 8 days now and they're STILL not done. I have a feeling they're just going to send me a refurbished one anyways...
Hope you have a speedy RMA!

Well, guys...good luck to Zep and Zlotman8938 with your RMA's! I am in a debocklet myself with my board. Micro center replaced the heatsink for me, but once I got everything setup and running (breadboarded it)... CPU_led is RED! great...I tried moving the ram, reseating heatsink and nada. Would really have been nice to have a speaker so I can hear the post beeps! Does the Carbide 400R not come with one? find it odd...

Anyway, any feedback would be appreciated!

Thanks!.

Hey folks

 

What is the difference between Ai Charger+ and the USB Charger+ on the Asus Suite?

Thanks for the reply.
Slight off topic but what is/are the most popular and reliable free software for monitoring pc performance and stuff? What about the benchmark?
