You can probably use it but I wouldn't risk it.Wait for ASUS to respond and don't try to fix it yourself.If you try to,you may break the pins accidentally and then you lose your warranty and probably destroy the motherboard smile.gif

Don't risk it, the second you try to use it and it ends up failing, they could say that it was your fault and won't cover you again. Sad I know, but things happen. A company still has to look out for violations whether or not they are known to be great at RMA.

I am a little confused I have two choices of graphics card, the following:

  • ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP
  • ASUS GTX 680 DirectCU II TOP

I know the 670 is good value for money, but then I'm thinking why not pay some more and go for the 680.

Can you help me?

I think you're better off asking over on the graphics card sub. But I own a 670 FTW and couldn't be happier.

the difference is small and it depends how long are you going to keep the card.I usually go for the best because I change hardware every 4 years and I want it to last.Note that if you just play games on 1080p , gtx 670 will be more than enough

What GPU temperatures have you been getting on idle and load, and does this graphics card benefit from over clocking further while keeping temperature at a minimum?

So say if I was looking at getting three DELL 27" 2560 x 1440 in the future would the GTX 670 stil be able to handle that, or would I need to get a GTX 680.

The price for the GTX 670 is £349 and the GTX 680 is £439, so £90 difference between the two.

I need to get a SATA BD Drive to match my Corsair 650d case any ideas?

Also thinking of strip LED lighting the ones you stick on, no mess!
