Was thinking of getting this board. Did a search and couldn't find the answer to this question.

Can I remove the thermal armor? And 2- does it void the warranty? I've seen a few pictures of it without the armor and I was just curious.

Also will it default my 1600 ram to 1600? Or still 1333 smile.gif thanks

You can remove the armor via ~8 screws on the back. You have to do this should you need to service the CMOS battery. The warranty states that the product should not be altered by non-authorized facilities. It is ambiguous about whether removing the thermal armor is an alteration. The installations of the Assist fans is optional, so maybe the armor is optional...

The BIOS will default to the JEDEC profile in the ram. AFAIK speeds over 1333 are in XMP profiles, which must be selected from the BIOS.

I was thinking of calling tomorrow to ask. I can't imagine removing that would void the warranty :/

No need to install every piece of software Asus has. Only install what you're going to use.

Lol i'm such a noob and apparently a terrible google searcher. I found the problem.

Any advice for slowing my cooler down, it's the only fan in the case I can hear.
I have changed the setting in the bios to silent, but it is still spinning at about 570rpm.
I have an 3770k oc'd to 4.3 the temp is 32 at idle
My cooler is a Dark Rock Pro with is obviously power by the mobo, all the chassis fans are connected to my fan controller in my Haf-x.
The cooler is supposed to be approx 20db, but is actually 52?

52db
The one you suggested is louder than the dark rock fan, I need to slow it down really, not replace it.

Plg it into the motherboard, download thermalradar software from Asus, set your fan curves.

It is plugged into the mobo, and the profile I already have on thermal radar is silent.
I can't figure out using a user profile how to slow more than the silent setting does. Silent really is not silent.

Have you checked the allow fan stop in thermal radar

Edit: You need to use a chassis fan plug to use that option
