tj, i have also been waiting on this MB. I have to ask you though, how did you get your Cosmos door (behind MB) to close with the wires routed back there? for the life of me, i can not get it to close properly. I have removed sounds dampening material, and nothing.

Please see this post:

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry the thread got off-topic there.

What does the 780i have over the 750i?
post #17 of 26
Couple of things over the regular 780i:

* Full solid caps
* 8 Phase Power Design
* Improved/more flexible BIOS
* Extremely reduced VDroop
* Waterblock/fan combination

So should I wait for the FTW version over the regular 780i? I plan on putting my own Thermalright coolers anyway. Is it worth the extra money for me? I'd hate to get a 780i and wish I got a FTW. I don't care so much about a waterblock or anything. What other improvements will there be?
