Optional fan is a northbridge fan. If you hold the board facing you, with the I/O panel on top, you'll see a silverish heatsink that says ASUS on it. The fan has two clips on one side, it will mount over there. Use it if your NB temperatures are high.

According to the manual, it says that this optional fan shouldn't be used when using an active CPU cooler, since it might block exhaust air that is supposed to go out of the case via a rear fan... I personally didn't have problems with it .... use it, and you will see NB temps drop a little (3-4C)

Was glad I bought the SE with the waterblock, may not be the "best" but it sure does run cool being watercooled from the factory! Rev - How'd the rampage bios affect you? (assuming you're running the ol maximus, since you state x38)

Gives you more options for tuning memory, and they claim you can get higher FSBs with lower Vcores than the regular Maximus Formula BIOS.

With default settings and without tuning your RAM, you will get a little more latency with your RAM (shows as lower bandwitdh and higher latency in Everest RAM benchie) ... but if you tune the extra parameters, you can get better performance out of it.

Other than those two things, no noticeable improvements. I see better stability than with the earlier MF BIOS though...

Hmmmm, strange cuz I can't get even close to 500FSB with this board, no matter what I do it seems. Back to running 4 2GB modules at 467FSB without any added voltage, it's just really frustrating. Was wanting to run exactly 500FSB or just over for my 1000Mhz ram, even if I could only run 2 of these modules!

You shouldn't have a problem hitting 500mhz with this particular board. Did you look through the xs threads on different bios setting?

Is there a reason you want to run synchronously? You might want to bench around 470-480 at 6:5 in the 333 strap. For me, that seems like the sweet spot. I know you can't overclock those G.Skills by much (I have two modules in my wife's system), but you might be able to get some reasonable bandwidth asynchronously.

No real reason, but at my current FSB, the memory will run 1100+ which obviously these junkers won't work at. I've got no problems hitting a hell of an overclock stable, but the damn FSB is killing me. =\\ Would appreciate any other users posting settings for 500+FSB, at least so I could compare. I thought I'd have no problem doing it since my Q6600 runs the same FSB.

I get DET RAM when I crank the FSB up. Was running 474x9.5 for 3dmark benchies last night, and anything over that it falls on it's face and becomes unstable. What in the heck am I doing wrong?
