Yep, I unplugged the SATA HDD as well. It recognizes everything and begins to install from windows cd. After a little bit of installation it goes to a blue error screen.

Hmm...I just tried installing XP on the SATA HDD and same issue. Could it be the optical drive?

Well I just tried another optical drive, same error again...

If it does it on the Sata drive as well, then it's a mobo/cpu/optical drive issue. I doubt it's the optical drive, because it would more likely just freeze than give you a semi-BSOD. Check the bios and make sure there's not an overclock set.

Hi, the Rampage II should be here today. This technically is my first build. I've read around about three methods of applying TIM. Some say to spread it along cpu, others say pea-sized dot, and lastly is the line method. Which do you guys think is best/easiest?

In this video, they show him applying a small dot to the bottom of the heatsink base. Then turning the heatsink upside down and sitting the motherboard on top, then screwing in to the retention bracket. Is this a good way of doing this?

best way to do it IMO is to put a small grain of rice sized piece of TIM on the CPU and let the weight of the heatsink spread it. Too much TIM is bad. Some people say to turn the heatsink left and right to help spread it, but I don't bother and I still get great temps.

Ok thanks. Well my Rampage II came today! But no IO Shield Plate, : (. Can I get past without it? Also is there any way to buy one?

I'm installing the cpu right now and it feels like I have to press way to hard on the lever to lock the cpu, and I'm afriad to push any harder, any suggestions?

Thanks!

you can run without the I/O shield, but I don't see why it didn't come with it. Did you end up buying new or open box? If new, then you definitly have a reason for them to send you one for free.

There is a notch on one side of the CPU and it matches a notch in the socket. The lever may be a little hard to push down, but not excessively hard. It's hard to describe online, but don't put your body weight into it but more than just pushing it gently down.

I just finished adjusting and thinking out cable management. And to me it seems finished, but I might critique my cable management job a little tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the reply. Can't wait to turn her on tomorrow. I did get an open box, when it came back in stock. I just checked and people on Ebay are selling the I/O shield plate alone, so I might go that route, unless there are actually retailers you recommend that would carry the Rampage II Extreme I/O shield plate.

Thanks again! You guys have been amazing with all the help

I bet that most retailers will have it in stock. Ebay sounds like a good plan.

BTW, this board is absolutely ridiculious. (See Attached Pic)
