Let's see how the request for information pans out, and keep it civil here.

When Asus pays you to troll forums you can't help it. I even posted a link STRAIGHT from Asus about X79 and X99 mobos but he will continue to tell me its pressure from the mounting solution. Lets try it again.

"More professional sockets and like X79 and X99 users server grade mounting options which make it almost impossible to over torque."

Oh snap straight from ASUS OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

You're exceptionally prim if you feel I've insulted anyone. Our friend here as per the post above mine just seems to be exceptionally angry for whatever reason. He's also still failing to comprehend that the failure did not occur from over-tightening.

These types of failure are not vendor specific. The fact remains the board and CPU had been perfectly operation for over a year before the failure occurred, directly after your intervention. There is no point dwelling on ones mistakes, nor am I trying to knock you down for the fact.

And im angry because someone who has NO idea what they're talking about shouldn't be commenting in the first place. Lets try it TWICE for you.

THIS IS STRAIGHT FROM ASUS SITE. CLEARLY YOU DIDN'T CLICK THE LINK TO BOTHER READING. Should we try THREE times?

"3. Do not over torque / over tighten screws

Number 3 - 1

This is a mistake happens a lot especially with CPU coolers. Many users think the tighter the better. Overall the goal is to ensure a solid secure bond, this can generally be achieved with a little more than finger tight. Exceeding this can cause serious issues. Why? Strain, torsion and unneeded pin / pad contact. Consider that when mounting the cooling solution you are have the CPU which has a pad which is being push down against a socket with pins. Excessive pressure can cause memory channels to drop and even cause instability when pad makes contact with the socket. This is due to the fact the memory controller is in the CPU and needs to registered the pins from the motherboard socket to registered and initialize all the DIMMS physically installed. A little known fact is Intel even has recommended guidelines for socket pressure. This is partly why Intel used push pins on the reference coolers as it ensured consistent pressure without over torque. More professional sockets and like X79 and X99 users server grade mounting options which make it almost impossible to over torque.

What to do if you have over tighten the retention mechanism?

Simply loosen the screws. If you are in the process of screwing in the retention plate or retention mechanism consider using a ratcheting screwdriver like those from BAHCO or WIHA. These type of screw drivers can allow you to be more precise at how much you torque you are applying."

That snippet of information just enforces what I was saying earlier, but if it makes you feel any better - I kneel to your superior knowledge...have a great day redface.gif

Wow you really are slow. You do know hes using X99 right? You do know that the statement from Asus states its IMPOSSIBLE to overtighten X99 platforms right? Good god the things i wanna say to you would get me banned for life. But here enjoy proof that Asus is garbage.

(waits patiently for the answer that legitreviews installed the 24pin atx plug "the wrong way")
