You lose all warranty, but Intel does not warranty used CPUs, so it should not affect the resale value. If someone did a good job on it with liquid ultra, I would pay more for a delidded CPU.

Anyone know which temperature sensor measures the VRM temps? Is it the one labeled "system"?

Well, the board did that weird boot loop again, and instead of resetting the CMOS, I just let it go. It booted into Windows on the fifth bootup. That was weird.

I’m building a new computer based on the Sniper3 and all has been going well up until now. I have been installing an old (pre-SP1) copy of Windows 7 64bit from another PC to test boot and drive timings while waiting for my legal copy of windows to arrive. The power on to post complete (raid init) was running consistently 15-18 seconds. (This was easy to tell since the H100i fan power up was almost in sync with the post time). When my new copy of windows 7 with SP1 64bit arrived, I chose to do a fresh install deleting all the partitions on the raid array and installing. I ran into a small issue with the UEFI drive and the MBR, but I change the boot priority in BIOS and all worked fine. However, suddenly my post times increased to 30-40 seconds. Afterwards Windows boots and all is stable. The code the motherboard hangs on for approximately twenty seconds is 64. I tried reloading the old windows 7 from other PC but the post times remain long. I have no other software loaded, not even a video card. Only things I may have done differently from the 10 or so other windows installs on this same system was:
- I left my WD pugged in during the install (have verified no partitions on it and have unplugged prior to boot cycle)
- The UEFI change I suddenly need to change for the new windows. Did Windows SP1 somehow change other BIOS settings?

I hate giving up on this 20 seconds and fear it’s maybe an indicator of problems to come. Any help/recommendations would be very welcome before I continue my migration to this new build.confused.gif

My new system (so far):
Gigabyte G1.Sniper3
SeaSonic Platinum 860W
Intel 3770K
Corsair h100i
4 x 4GB G.Skill DDR3-2133
2xSamsung 840 pro 256Gb (RAID0)
WD Black Caviar 2TB (not partitioned)

probably the system was resetting the your ramm installed to a more stable, be it non overclocked, settings. Speak of the devil... my system crashed and my ramm clocked went down from 1600 to 1066mhz. I think I jacked them up when I pushed them past 2133mhz. No repeating boots though

Actually, this time I had increased my RAM frequency to 1866 for teh lulz, and it didn't set the frequency correctly when I booted up. After it did this boot loop, it set the frequency correctly. No idea what happened.

Mine's crashing after I install the onboard gpu drivers and try to boot into windows. Popped in a 580 and she boots fine (even with the onboard vid drivers installed). I can access the bios without any issues. Weird...it'll boot without the drivers installed. Guess I'll have to wait for my new gpu to arrive frown.gif.

Should I rma it?

When I try to get into the bios, it'll freeze up and I have to hard reboot or power down completely and restart. It's happening on a reg basis no matter what bios I use. Dunno what the heck is causing this issue as I've changed everything. Still using the psu in my sig ( Silverstone Zeus 1200w) so I'm sure it isn't a power issue. I'm waiting on a new fully modular power supply ( Zeus 1350w) to replace the 1200 and see if that will help clear the issue if it's indeed my psu. I doubt it tho, but I'm covering all my bases at this point.

After updating the BIOS to F7 and tearing down the RAID and OS and rebuilding. I had a big discovery in my hunt for the post pause issue ...the bios boot code isn't 64, it's b4! I disconnected the USB on the H100i water block and the quick boot times have returned! Reconnect the USB cable to the H100i water block and the boot process pauses for 20-25 additional seconds to visit the H100i. I'm beginning to really hate the H100i with it's rattling fans and USB connections. Any suggestions at this point? I'm gonna install the software drivers for the H100i and see if that helps any and see if there are any firmware updates for it.
