Did you still use all 9 standoffs? In my case I can only have the standoffs in certain, predetermined spots.

ASRock is 12" x 8.6", and Sabertooth and Gigabyte-UD5H is 12.0" x 9.6".

I was just going to say the something, change some of the standoffs to make it fit. I'm just wondering why they would make the ext4 shorter then the ext6 when they're both standard atx dimensions

Nope, I believe there are 7 spots for standoffs on the MB itself.

I'm pretty sure you can re-arrange the standoffs and remove some on your case. Just need some pliers smile.gif

The e4 is not as wide, as an intentional design decision.
Why? No idea
But you need to be extra careful when installing, especially when doing the 24-pin power connector, as there is no standoff behind it to support the board.

Damn so I got another 2 crashes this week. Been running stable on my 4.5ghz overclock for a good 2 weeks now, no crashes, prime95 was stable 24hrs for this run. Everything was fine till this week when I got a freeze last night when browsing + downloading stuff for my phone, very light load. Then I got another this morning, and all I had was steam running a download in the background and browsing my g+ page. So Im thinking this has something to do with networking, light load or my storage. I have all the C1E / Cstates crap turned off, no speedstep, offset voltage, VTT and PLL are fixed and slightly undervolted. At a complete loss here, going to start by changing out my wireless card for a longggg ethernet cable, see if thats the issue. Any other suggestions ?
edit: the previous discussion about these crashes me and aaronsky were having http://www.overclock.net/t/1254599/official-asrock-z77-discussion-owners-club/1040#post_17622758

Ok, updating my findings so far. On Sunday I did away with my PCI (not express) Rosewill WiFi adapter, in favor of a new powerline adapter (ethernet over house power connection) going into the mobo's ethernet port. I haven't removed the PCI card yet but the windows adapter for it is disabled. So far (4 days running) I dont have a crash, running same settings as before. Too early to call yet, going to give this about a week full of testing before I am convinced, but definitely seems to be the culprit. Anyone else using PCI cards on this board running into trouble with stability? Ofcourse it might just be my adapter and not the board

Generic WiFi cards are the worst! Also, I'm buying a Z77 Fatal1ty Pro soon enough. Any issues I should be aware of before doing so?

If it matters, I have this one and couldn't be happier:

Seems to be pretty similar oc wise compared to its big brothers. Allready got 4.6GHz stable with 1.22 volts, temps just were bit over my comfort zone for daily use so rolled back to 4.5GHz 1.17v.
