I'm on 1.55v

But mem testing takes a whole lot of time, and I have been testing mem for days now trying to get it to even work, so I'll leave it there for now until I go to OC'ing them, and then I'll probably need whatever extra voltage may be left to run the higher clock stable anyway....I just hope there is enough room left to OC them stable...smile.gif

Thanks for all your helpful suggestions Totally Dubbed!

I have the R4 case if that helps.

Dam those plastic stickers.smile.gif

I apologize but I had to laugh a bit. I had the exact same 'issue', but I just grabbed a pair of tweezers and pulled the sticker out through the ethernet cable hole in the IO shield. Took max 2 minutes including looking for tweezers, the sticker was very easy to peel off.

@heimeg: it should really just fit in again, exactly like you did it the first time. There should be no reason why the board does fit the first time and not the second time while all you did is peel off a sticker.

I had to laugh too as I had thought I was the only "bone-head" that happened too! I fixed mine the same way you did keesgelder, I just kept the board in and used tweezers and it came right out. thumb.gif

Really though, I have never had a board that put a sticker over the ethernet port! Never thought to look for it to remove it before I installed the board, so had it running and tried to plug in the cable! - then, ***??? - found it! No way I wanted to take the whole thing apart, so I tried the tweezers and it worked great! LOL

Ha! Finally my 'always keep everything that comes with components' obsession has some use.

So, it's basically a (thin) sticker covering two USB 3.0 ports as well as the Ethernet port. Here you go:



I actually noticed that in many unboxings, like this one and this one, there was no sticker at all (so maybe you didn't have it either). Perhaps the first batch came without the sticker, and later batches came with it. What a fascinating mystery tongue.gif lol

I'm pretty sure I had that sticker, but got it off, out of impulse.
How did the guys get it logged into the PC is beyond me lol biggrin.gif

Reason I didn't know what it was, was the fact that it has caused 2-3 people here those problems...lol

EDIT: Yup had it:
@5:40 in my video unboxing:

Maybe next time post a CLOSER picture what it looks like so future customers know what to look if they got this board.
