The backplate must be clashing with something.

I found on the Dark Base 900 I needed to remove the cable management grommets. Then the board lay nice and flat.



The backplate pretty much takes up all available gap between mobo/tray.

I removed those too and it still did it. The cables underneath were still relatively loose after tightening the mobo down. I figured it was just that huge backplate's doing and shrugged it off. It was still easy to snug the right side mobo screws down so I don't think its a real big issue. Not for me at least.

Ah, my bad then. Just saw 1.4V and 4ghz+ clock. Then all is well.

Also, I didn't have to do anything special to get my memory (same from Crosshair VI Hero) to post with its rated speed and timings this time. Punched in speed, punched in timings. Gravy.

Raja any update on when the next beta will come out that address the temp readings in the bios and on ai suite. Also, aisuite is getting stuck sometimes with fan profiles, I notice it doesn't actually control the fan at times. I've had it happen a few times now, the dot signifying the fan speed will have changed but the fan speed is still the same. Same fans, same layout worked on prior ai suite versions all the time, now on the latest one with 0046 it's a hit or miss.

Hey guys,

 

Looking to build a Threadripper rig with this motherboard, quick question. I notice on the features that you can purchase a fan for the M.2 Expansion Cards to cool the storage. Is the fan a particular Asus accessory you can puchase somewhere or can someone recommend a fan that would work in conjunction with the M.2 Expansion card ?

I have not noticed any "official" fans for this..



This is the bracket you can install and mount a fan on.
Inner dimension of the cutout where you screw on the fan is 12.5 centimeters.

Pic from the dark interwebs on how mounting bracket and fan should be installed:

Great, thanks for the info. Anyone with any suggestion of a suitable quite fan ? I have seen Noctua do some of these smaller quite fans so will take a look at them as well.

I can't seem to find my M2 discs with the DIMM.2 riser card. Anyone else with SM951's that have issues?
