Just stick with Nvidia. I love Nvidia so much more than ATI. I've always had a problem with the ATI Drivers.
Also, we're just saying if you don't OC, a Maximus is not needed.

P.S. I already have a Sandisk Extreme. I'm also working on a GTX 670 or perhaps a 7950/7870. I game at 1920 so I don't need SLI/CFx or have the desire or room for 2+ monitors.
I was just kidding..biggrin.gif It was a joke redface.gif

No sweat guys, all in fun. wink.gifthumb.gif

I'm leaning more towards the GTX 670 if I can squeeze it into my budget. Same thing with cooling: I like the Swiftech here: http://www.swiftech.com/H2O-x20-Edge-HD.aspx ...but it may stretch me too thin, so perhaps I'll settle on a Corsair H80/100. Something else I'd like to do is have the top cover of my Lian Li A77 case cut for a 3-core rad and if I have the spare $$$, powder coat the interior black or maybe pearl white. All in all it'd be a nice rig. I talked to Joe at FrozenCPU and he said Lian Li doesn't make this cover any more. http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product/product06.php?pr_index=525&cl_index=2&sc_index=45&ss_index=74. He did say they could cut the cover for me so I'm still giving that consideration.

To give you an idea of where I'd like to head with the case, less the wc components...

What batch are your 3570Ks? I ended up with an early batch, #L151B877, from Newegg back in late June while most others at that time received L2 batches.

@Swag: Have you installed the mini PCIe card in your M5 Gene? I installed the one in my Formula and even though there are no driver conflicts in Device Manager, Network Connections in Win7 shows the wi-fi and bt adapters as "not connected" and "network cable unplugged." Yeah, it doesn't make sense because they are wireless connections. Apparently it's a pending issue on the ROG forums but doesn't get much attention because most people don't install it.

Also, am I the only one with a batch number for my 3570k starting with CNC? The batch numbers I'm seeing posted here are all very different than mine. Mine is: CNCV21V00I

Ive never seena batch number that looks even remotely similar to this.. are you sure youre looking at the correct alphanumeric code?
post a pic of your retail box showing the white labels/stickers printed in black ink on the left edge of the back side of the box..

Yep, the one that comes in the box. I believe the Gene is similar.

Thanks for the feedback. I had a D-Link DIR-601 in the same spot that I have the M5F antennas now, so signal shouldn't be a problem. I may have to RMA mine (the card, hopefully not the entire board) as it just won't install without the aforementioned issues.

According to their web site, yes. It's what they call an "mPCIe Combo."
