That being said i doubt they will though

Grr... My new build (my first one, actually) has developed a problem.

Okay, back log on this. I had some sort of noise in my case (doesn't matter, that is not
my main concern anymore). I pulled the GFX card as a diagnostic step. To do this, I
shut down the computer and such and turned off the power supply and such. i
removed the GFX card and rebooted Windows without the card in there. The sound
still was there, so I turned off the computer and put the card back in.

Now, I am having trouble everywhere. Windows Aero doesn't fucntion (it says my card
is too old or something), steam games don't work, The rise of the witch king says
something about my card not supporting the right version of DirectX. In essence, my
card is not configured right and it is being a pain.

I decided to reinstall the card. I disabled the card in Windows device manager and
uninstalled the GFX drivers. I restarted and continued to uninstall everything that
related to the card. I didn't actually take out the card, just left it disabled and such.
When i got everything else uninstalled, I uninstalled the card through device manager.
I then rebooted windows and went through the steps to reinstall the card.

The problem with Directx and such still persists. I can't play steam games (they say
preparing to launch and then crash before any splash screen). I can't play the rise of
the witch king. Windows Aero doesn't work. It is messed up.

I uninstalled the GTX 570 and installed my friends card (a Saphire Radeon 5770) and it worked, I even caused chaos in Skyrim. Also, when I put my GTX 570 back in, I noticed that if I switched the HDMI cable to my onboard GFX and disable the GTX 570, then I can play games again.

I have contacted ASUS and got this reply (word for word):
"Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.
Please take out your graphic card, try to clean its golden connectors with a rubber, check if there is any hardware issue, and then reseat it back tightly.If convenient, you may reinstall clean OS. Please just install the least/basic applications. It may check if the issue caused by software conflict or not. Otherwise please change this card to another PC to test."

Did anyone else notice he wanted me rub my card with rubbers? But anyway, yeah, mailed them a couple times (including something about me using my friends Saphire Radeon 5770, which I put a hyperlink to the newegg page btw). They haven't sent anything back but the very dummy troubleshoot instructions.

I also contacted nVidia, and they replied like twice. Thought they were on my side and they just bailed on me.

So... Now I am wondering if I have a big paper weight or what. Seriously, I think I will try to get a refund if customer support continues to be a *****, and I will have my eye on the new Radeon cards coming out soon (maybe this month, maybe next month, and get a Saphire if they offer the new cards).

UPDATE: For some strange reason, after reinstalling it like a dozen times, it works. ***, Makes no sense, none at all! But I don't care, it works!

Oh, and I'm not buying from Asus again. Just for the ****ty support they have.

Question, do these filters mount inside our outside the computer?

I got a great deal on my SR1 360/655-B Pump, paid $100 or $110 so it was a great deal since the rad itself is normally $100 itself.
I thought about doing the advance RMA but if for whatever reason it has a problem I couldn't cross ship it 2x in a row (which BTW is lame as heck).

I have a Coolstream 360 with AP-15s in p/p and I lost the top 2 5.25" bays, but reclaimed them by putting in a fan controller and a card reader in the 3.5" adapter. If I use only a single layer of fans, I only lose the top bay.

My haf 922 i just spent all day changing the fans and doing some hardcore cable management. I think it came out beautiful, minimal cables visible on a pretty hard haf case to cable manage (with that 2 inch slot that makes all cables visible)

I did sacrifice some things in order achieve maximum look. I sacrificed the dvd drive which to be honest i only have used once when i first got the computer. I also sacrificed the usb ports on the front, which i do not use either.

My nice new 2600k boxed CPU from Intel came in biggrin.gif:D:D:D Heck YESSS. Got it all installed and since they system was... "prebleed" by sitting for four days on its side its siltent and amazing again, 4.8ghz FTW again at even lower vcore. Well, idle anyways, just a hair lower on load but haven't fine tuned it. devil.gif

Forgot to mention during rebuild I decided to mod my PSU a bit when I was testing to figure out what was wrong. Its a TX 950 so since I use SO few molex (not even enough to fill an entire line from the PSU) I Pulled a set of molex since I mean I barely need 4 let alone 8. Then since I have a single GPU and would plan on SLI max (tri seems a bit wasteful since scaling after 2 sucks) and the PSU has 6 PCIE connectors, I chopped two off and used the wiring to extend the other 4, since the PSU is outside the case. Now I can route it through the back again so its cleaner and easier as well as less cabling.

Submit that feedback to customer support. I don't believe that was what was intended to say, but it's not what you intend to say it's what was said that makes a difference.

Clean it with a rubber what? If dude meant an actual condom then he shouldn't be working for anyone in the tech industry. Thank god you aren't one of the sheep and didn't follow that advice to the letter. wink.gif

Thanks to OCN borking my subscriptions I'm having a late go of answering the filter questions...

I got my filters from Performance-PCs and no they won't interfere with your HDDs'. The HDD are in their own metal cage via plastic/nylon and aluminum holders. The filters won't even come close enough to them to cause any interference. They'd have to be extremely powerful to do so. These are just magnetized and not a true magnet. I can't tell you exactly what the trim is made of only that it's not powerful enough to mess with electronic devices. My system is currently on the table with my monitor about an inch to the left of it. Having seen first hand what a magnet does to a TV tube, I know that if it was powerful enough, my monitor would be discoloring on the right hand side along the bezel. Nothing. Not even a hint of discoloration. wink.gif
