Replacement RMA'd board back from Asrock. Customer service was excellent, and turnaround time was fantastic. Will commence memory testing again now...

congrats on a speedy RMA process, It took me almost 6 months to get a warped Asus motherboard exchanged. rolleyes.gif

Look at all those purty gold caps.
Ya know I was wondering why they didn't make the pedestal for the SM8 open on both ends like this case. Sure makes rigging a drain line a pain in cramped quarters.

I haven't had the joy of dealing with Asus before. With Asrock, my return was so simple it was criminal. It took a week. They wouldn't cross-ship, but I sent it priority mail and it got there in two days. They took 2 days to process it, and Fed-ex'd me back a new board. Was a super experience.

You trying to do one out the bottom? Or out the back?

Basically the back of the SM8 ped is solid with hex holes punched in the aluminum. Looks like I'm going to have to either flip the flex bay end to the rear to hide the drain setup, since the only way to get the inner flex bay cover/grill on is to take the radiators out, or just live without that piece. I guess it won't look bad since the outer full cover piece will still be in place, but it's just real tight quarters with those 2x480's.
I had originally thought to put the drain at the opposite end since the Alphacool rads have that single end port, but there is not room for fittings back there without cutting out the solid end piece.
It's not that I'm unhappy with it, but for some reason I expected the back end to have a removable plate facilitating easy access. I'll just deal with what I have in the meantime, and maybe CL will come out with an alternate end plate for the pedestal.
