This motherboard is a great motherboard for my new case mod.

Notice how the thermal armor is surrounding the circuints on the motherboard?

Also i love the covers for PCI slots etc. Its a nice little touch.

I also have 2 4gb rams and the other 2 slots were emtpy bu I placed the RAM cover and it looks beautiful.

Honestly this board is a winner visually.

The ones that comes with the board are really noisy, even at low rpm.
These are replacements for the little mini fans that cool inside the TUF armour? If so ,I want them for sure.

Yes, they are, but I don't know the noise level.
I'm gonna replace the back one with a 40mm and the middle one with another 35mm, both sleeve bearing.
The major problem with these stock 35mm fans is that they are ball bearing, wich means more efficiency and longer lifetime but higher noise.

What do you guys believe the impact of the 40mm fans are in our motherboards?

anyone ever tested them off and on?

In this thread you can find several links about temperatures with and without the armor, and fans on and off.

The assist fans are 35 mm in size not 40mm unless Asus has changed them lately.I replaced the side fan with a 40mm just recently and it was slightly bigger than the stock one.
