Very nice! Here I was thinking I'd had it tough getting a pump in under my case's PSU shroud. Talk about space constraints! thumb.gif

Out of curiosity, since we have the same exact CPU & GPU setup, what kind of temps are you seeing?

I was gonna start a new thread about this but since you asked - GPU is 23C idle, 45C under load but CPU is 22 idle, 85 under load. Earlier this week I was getting 65 under load but then I updated to the most recent BIOS to start overclocking and now I'm getting ridiculous CPU temps. Does anyone know of a way to downgrade to an earlier version of the BIOS on this mobo or what the problem may be?

To downgrade, just download the BIOS previous to what you're using and flash it.

Are you doing a manual OC? or the auto OC that ASUS has?

Huh, that's pretty odd if all you did was upgrade. I have an ATX MAXIMUS VIII Hero, but was planning on updating the BIOS later today. I'll be sure to keep an eye on my temps.

Before you downgrade firmware, have you defaulted the board? Or perhaps researched if that is a known bug? Going back and forth on firmware isn't generally advisable.

That's what I thought. Unfortunately, whenever I try to flash an older version it doesn't recognize the cap file as a "proper BIOS file".
I'm planning on a manual OC but im not going to start that process until I can back away from 80C stock load. My next step is to take the whole damn thing apart again to re-seat the monoblock though I really don't want to since I know I had good contact before the new BIOS version.
Temperature seems to be fluctuating a lot lately (new Chrome window will spike it to 50C then back down to 22 immediately) which seems like bad contact, right?

You mean remove the CMOS battery? Ya, I tried that but it doesn't reset the BIOS version to factory just settings and system clock.
This version (2202) is still pretty new which makes researching "known bugs" sort of difficult.
And I understand that but I don't have much of a choice here since that's the only thing that changed.
