Sounds like a good idea, can´t wait for that post.

wow this is a crazy board, so many new bios adjustments I've never really used I need to do some reading, have this quad rock solid at 3.6Ghz, for some reason I clocked down to 3.4Ghz. I've posted at 4.1Ghz and that was only changing the fsb/ram/voltage for cpu/ram. Haven't messed with the other prethera of voltages that will definately help the stability of a high OC.

Oh yes, there are a lot of tweak options but then again is a "Rebublic of Gamers" board.

But they still have forgot to add CPU GTL Referens for each core, with it you can set each core individual and get higher FSB and Clockspeed with lower vcore set on those quads, it´s not bad as it´s but it could always be better.

You can read about the board here, it`s a review from Anandtech.

Came across this post about what can go wrong when trying to remove the Maximus Formula SE NB heatsink which uses a kind of cement like TIM paste underneath.

http://www.clunk.org.uk/forums/1330-post164.html

I had this in mind when I removed the heatsink on my Rampage, I had to use a lot of force to remove it, but it all went allright.

How I did it, I put a knive between NB IHS and the heatsink and applied pressure and at the same time I used a wide (wide as the heatsink) and about 30cm long and 5mm think metalbar to put pressure underneath the heatsink and at the same time twist the heatsink from one side to the other.

The heatsink was stucked quite firm so be careful.

OK i just build my rig today, on first few hours and no problem ram is runing at 1066mhz install Vista 64 bit no problem where with Asus Striker Extrem 680i and Striker 780i i had BSOD.
Looks like Intel and Asus did something right this time.

Nice rig you have there Mozzie.

Looking forward too see how high you can push your E8400 with that Zalman cooler and those OCZ Reaper has a lot of tweak options with this board so you have a lot do.

Good luck with your new rig.

All you need is a hairdryer. You heat up the NB heatsink for a minute (the TIM softens when heated), then just slide the HS right off with gentle pressure.

Then use nail poish remover to clean off the tim. Dont scrape it or you will gouge the HS and/or IHS.

Hi guys

When you guys go for water on NB, what kind of cooling do you use on SB and mosfet.

I thinking on get this for SB

http://www.enzotechnology.com/cnb_s1l.htm

or

http://www.enzotechnology.com/slf_1.htm

and for mosfet

http://www.enzotechnology.com/mos-c1.htm

need "only" 32 pieces for my board........


I don´t think I need both heatsink and fan for SB, only heatsink shuould be enough or what do you guys think.

My temporary solution today is only a 40mm fan 10mm above the SB and temp is never above 35.

Here´s pics of my temporary solution, what do you guys think?

Have you got WC on your rig yet?

Have you done some more tweking on your rig?

Have you read this article from Anandtech, I think is very good, a lot of tips.

There is a new BIOS version released from ASUS, 0403, anyone tried it yet?
