Just won't be able to do 4 way sli which is no big deal to me. 4 way sli doesn't scale well anyhow so I'll just stick with 3 way.
HAF XB Build with sniper board...
This is NOT my build but being done by a guy for Coolermaster for some upcoming tech shows.

There's a bit of room left for the fourth card. You can always convert the slot bracket from a dual to single. I'm very tempted to get an XB but I'm pretty satisfied with my Elysium and the missus won't allow more uprades redface.gif

Yeah, I can't wait until I get an overclocking processor for it.
The onboard audio is amazing on this thing,

The only thing that I would have liked to see on this board that isn't there is a CMOS clear button on the back; my case doesn't have the easiest to use side panels.

I also can't seem to mount my intel stock CPU cooler on this thing properly; it can't handle prime 95. I've remounted it twice and the TIM spread seems normal.

If you corrupt one of the BIOSs, can you reflash it using the second BIOS? Also, is there any way to turn off or dim that orange BIOS led, it's not pleasant to look at in a dark room.

Edit: I'm having an issue where I cannot access the BIOS; when I try to, it just gives me a half loaded BIOS. I've tried clearing the CMOS, and that didn't help.

Well F8g is a fail for me. The bios does not recognise my Logitech G110 keyboard (usb) so have to use a $1.50 usb keyboard to get into the bios. Have gone back to F8f for now.

I fixed the BIOS issue I was having by flashing with @BIOS. That tool is really helpful.

Picked mine up at Newegg as well as the i5 3579k CPU

Should arrive soon but I was ,wondering for basic startup but was wondering if I must have the latest bios or do anything special in the bios to get it going.

Anyone that has built this should have a few tricks for us 1st timers.graduated.gif

How is the stock Intel fan working out?
What temps are you getting idle and working?

Thanks

I'm getting 87 degrees on prime 95 for some reason, so it's not going well at all.

Can anyone help me...

Got a g1 sniper m3 board using f9 bios. Computer randomly comes up with the bluescreen memory dump... Crashes... Also aswell only just recently having problems with it freezing on start up. Loads windows and about 20 seconds in freezes. Sometimes when I click on my windows user name it comes up with loading and just stays with that screen, few minutes in you can click ctrl alt delete and load task manager but not all the proccesses have loaded for windows.

Having all sorts of dramas with my board. Anyone have ideas on stable bios, or anything that will stop the bluescreen issues.
