Thanks in advance.

Guess your saying I might need a bigger hammer? smile.gif Supposedly if I take the fins off the ram it should work. This is for my son's birthday/graduation present. Hope it works.

Generally if there is some airflow across the RAM, the RAM heatsink is just cosmetic. RAM runs pretty cool.
The nh-d14 middle 140mm fan usually will pull air down low and cool the RAM.

Thanks GeneO. I'm replacing the stock cooler fans with the A15pwm and F12pwm. Going to remove all the drive bays and put two A14's in the front and one on the bottom and then one out the rear and one out the top. Do you recommend using any of the asus software? Anything special I should know about setting up this board? This is my third build with the first going back to a PIII 1 gig. I have never tried something this involved.

I have not found any use in any of the utilitysoftware that comes with the mobo. Someone like the AI Suite, to control the fans. I use a manual fancontroller and therefor I have never tried that function.
The only thing I've installed is the ROG CPU Z, for no other reason then that it looks cool smile.gif
Oh .. If my memory serves me right you will need the USB 3 drivers and ethernet drivers. Or at least I did, windows 7 didnt find/install these (yes i still use W7...).

I have A15 and F12 on my D14 as well. Use the original P14 in in front of the case (along with another) and the NF-P12 on the bottom..

I use the Fan expert software and Daemon tools. Daemon tools has had a reputation for crashing, but works perfectly fine for me, no issues. Must be past history.

Unless they fixed it in a newer BIOS, don't enable VRM spread spectrum. It will cause resets coming out of sleep.
If you are having difficulty recognizing hard drives or SSD or don't plan to use the Asmedia SATA ports, disable the Asmedia controller in BIOS.
If you aren't using some RAM slots, disable them in BIOS. Disable the on-board graphics if you aren't using it (bottom of tweaker's paradise menu).

Thank you very much. I have a swiftech 8 way pwm splitter and plan on using all A14's on the case. If it doesn't work the way I hope, then I will use the stock cooler fans in the case. Is the tweakers paradise part of the asus software? I guess manually overclocking is better than doing the auto oc? Hope to have it up and running Saturday night. Have to work Saturday and we need to swap over the hard drives from his current computer.
