Well its good to see some awesome scouts since I have been away! biggrin.gif

I myself have slipped into the seventh circle of hell with my rig currently sad-smiley-002.gif

It all kicked off about a week ago when my motherboard decided to die completely on me (no boot..no post...just lights) but I caught a lucky break in the fact that the online supplier was only a 45min drive from Liverpool and they had agreed to do an exchange on the spot.

Picked up the new motherboard and decided to drive all the way back to my home town of Cambridge (other side of the country) to see the folks and spend some time studying before my finals in two weeks. Once I got settled I decided to rebuild my rig so i could begin studying, only to find this board is ALSO FAULTY and will not recognise my 7970 unless I have something in the second pcie slot and consistently freezes after 3 minutes even on stock clocks mad.gif. ALLof my uni work is on my rig and I have no way of accessing it currently and I cant afford the 4 hour drive back to SCAN Computers in Bolton until the 15th (three days before my exams). sad-smiley-002.gif

I am so disappointed with gigabyte that I am refusing a direct like for like replacement and will never go with them ever again.

So I currently have two choices, either a non gigabyte Z68 or non gigabyteZ77? bearing in mind I have a 2600k and will have for the foreseeable future...what everyone's opinions of the boards in the links? anything in particular would you recommend?

Also I somehow blew my PSU up so I have now got a corsair HX750...but i am not so upset at that as my old psu was terrible tongue.gif

The only good news is I managed to spend 5 mins in my workshop at my parents today and made a new PSU cover out of a single sheet of acrylic that I heated and bent round. Decided to paint the inside surface of it black so the outside was still smooth a shiny like my hdd cover. I also created a window so you could see my psu logo. thumb.gif

here is a crappy phone shot..still got to pinstripe the edges of the paint in the window.
450

Is just a shame my rig is currently useless and can only produce fan noises and light the room red...... sadsmiley.gif

First off that sucks big time!

Second was it the PSU going out that killed the MB? If so you may have a bad CPU, it almost sounds like the PCI control on the CPU could be bad.

Third this website doesn't have a lot to choose from but from this website I would go with these
BIG EDIT
Z77 IS OUT!

Asus Sabertooth Z77

  • Z77/future proof if you want to upgrade your CPU to IB

Thanks GoodInk for all the info thumb.gif

I wasn't sure about the Z77 range as i thought some of them had less power phases then the Z68 range due to the reduced voltage from the die shrink? thinking.gif

Unfortunately I will be probably skipping ivy due to the cost of it....but I still like the possibly of a board that can accept ivy in case my situation changes in the future so I am still unsure lol.

You won't regret it. I love the Sabertooth 990FX board. The thing is rock solid in both performance and construction. I swear I could toss mine down the stairs and it will still work. The five year warranty is amazing as well. I love the way it looks also. I just wish my cooler didn't cover the whole board.

Thinking of removing my HDD bays, they're ugly, take up air flow and not needed for my ssd. 2 Questions:
1. Do you have to remove the hdd bays by dremel / drilling the rivets? Is there any other way?
2: Any places you have mounted a HDD that would work?

Most use a drill and dremel
2: Any places you have mounted a HDD that would work?
5.25" bays for most, I mounted mine to the bottom of the case,

the asus 990 fx is definetly a sick motherboard dude! I have it in my rig and it is rock solid. However, my graphics card is running a little warm right now so my pci-1 port is getting a little warmer than i would like but everything is still stable and working flawlessly!thumb.gif definetly would reccomend this board to anyone.

You have 3.0 slots, it's not any different from Z68

Z77
PCI Express 3.0 x16 -- 2 (single @x16, dual @x8)
PCI Express 2.0 x16 -- 1 (@x4)

Z68
PCI Express 2.0 x16 -- 3 (x16, x8, x4)
