Before I got my ST board I had read thru most of this forum and was concerned about the whine of the small fans.

It does not matter what speed I run them at mine are very quiet. Not saying that others are not getting an annoying
whine but I don't thumb.gif

Lighting had fried my ASRock EX4 Gen3 so I switched to Asus Sabertooth biggrin.gif I was very amazed when ASRock RMAed me a new board,
guess I will save some money for an i7 3770k and start a rebuild with the i7 2600k and the ASRock Ex4........

I am using the newest bios 1403 with no problems............Thanks for all the good advice.

Well finally ordered one of these as my old X58 was getting a little long in the tooth. Also grabbed the i5 3570k as well as some G Skill RAM and a 120gb SSD Drive. Hopefully should arrive early next week.

I have the original 1403 and compared with the new one, they are identical.
No idea why it was pulled and then re-released, but I'm not going to update as I had issues with 1403 and had to downgrade to1304 to solve.
