melantha, was it the Rev. 1.01G on the motherboard? And you were able to boot and flash your bios?

Well, being my first build I just RMA'D the crosshair lll. I Thought it might be better to get my feet wet with a different board. I ordered the Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5.

The board looked great. Nothing wrong with it, I was skidish of the 903 bios and maybe having to use another cpu to boot with before using my cpu. Just the uncertainty if it.

Gigabyte makes a good board. I had there later model GA-MA790FX-DS5 and I made it go KABOOM. I never had one more reliable board up till then.

at least just boot it up with stock everything and give it a try
Glad it all worked out for you.Some others have had trouble booting with the 903 bios and the 965. Murphy's law was written for me. Did not want to risk it if it wouldn't work for 1 out of a 100 the 1 would be me lol.
Thanks for all the replies .

By any chance, on the Crosshair, are the northbridge heatsinks attached via sprung screws at the rear? If so, it may be possible to improve cooling efficiency by spacing these screws with small plastic washers.. I did the same thing on my "openbox" Maximus II Formula, and it dropped NB temps a good 10C--however, it was a common issue with that board. I also had a retail version, unmolested, and it definately had the same 'issue' with mounting pressure.
