Will keep my build. lol.
Just need to decide on the demci filter kit for the haf 932.

Heard they restrict more airflow then they claim. Heard its a bad idea to use filters on exhaust fans and psu intake fans. And they are going to cost me $60, which is worth it to me only if they don't restrict air flow too much and if I can actually use the top filter for exhaust fan and bottom filter for psu intake fan.

If anyone has these filters and is happy or not happy with them please let me know.

umm. crap how do I delete a post lol

As for the filters man, I'd just say for you to make your own filters out of some window screen material. It's easy and there are ton's of guides and how to videos online. You just take some of the material and fold it over about 4 times and then cut it to fit inside all of the fan covers.

Only question now is if the demci flex filters for the haf 932 is worth it. The kit comes with 4 custom filters and it's going to cost me $60.

I read that they restrict air flow significantly, more than they claim.
I have also read that you shouldn't use dust filters for exhaust fans or your psu.

I'm still unsure about how much they restrict the airflow and I see that the haf x hast dust filters on the top of the case and the top 200mm fan is an exhaust by default. But idk if that's ok because their filters don't block as much airflow as the demci ones...

Also see some cases using dust filters on the intake fans of psus. However, once again idk if it's ok because those filters don't restrict as much air flow as the demcis.

If anyone has these filters please let me know if they restrict tooo much air. And if they are ok on the top exhaust 200mm fan and side 200mm fan and psu intake fan.

Can you or anyone else confirm that slots 1 and 3 run with x16 and x8? Either -E or premium will do.
Yep, both boards support x16/x8/x8 OR x16/x16/x1. This is configurable in the BIOS.

Also Note: with regards to your concern with 2 or more video cards installed, where the upper cards will run hotter than the bottom is correct. In fact, most motherboards will have this same issue when you sandwich together the cards, due to air flow restrictions. It's just the way the boards are designed. A couple of ways to get around this are to run them in slots 1 and 3 OR going with a custom water loop. (as previously mentioned by lawrencendlw) And as far as degredation in performance goes for running x16/x8.. it is so minimal that you won't even see the difference. Long story short, you will be absolutely just fine! Enjoy your new board.

Huge thanks for the OC guide xmisery without your help I would have not been able to get a stable OC as fast.

And thanks to all of the members here for their patience and willingness to share their knowledge with us noobs.
Welcome to OCN!

Awesome build Spin and I appreciate the kind words! I'm definitely looking forward to some pics of your new rig. congrats!

The -E 0303 BIOS has some stability/RAM comaptibility issues for me.

The Premium BIOS is a lot more stable with my RAM then the -E BIOS ever was.

I'm not sure why they haven't released a new -E BIOS yet as all they would need to do is replace the dual nic module with a single NIC module and also replace the SATA 6GB/s module with the RAID one.

Other then that, the BIOS for the -E and Premium should be identical.

Hey.. is the 0904 BIOS supports 6x 2GB Corsair Dominator GT CMG6GX3M3A1600C7 PC3-12800 7-7-7-20 ?? Its running 4GB 1600 7-7-7-20 or 8GB 1066 8-8-8-20. Thanks.
post #3438 of 6382
You would have to call Asus and/or check the Ram compatibility list for that answer.

I am running now 8GB 1200MHz 9-9-9-24-2T with 0904. That's sad. I am thinking in upgrading to R3E next year and 2000MHz DDR3.
post #3440 of 6382
Question: If I have a RAID 0 setup, how do I flash BIOS so that I don't destroy the RAID setup? I've accidentally done this twice and it scarred me. Do I just reset BIOS to default and then flash the new BIOS then setup RAID again? Would that save my RAID from being destroyed during the process of flashing?

Also this board has a couple of problems that people should know about. There's not enough room between the 1st and 2nd slots so unless you use ATI cards (which tend to have lower temperatures), you might run into heat problems. If you have mid-high end GPUs, chances are you won't be able to fit them in the 3rd slot unless you have cases like the HAF's and have a top mounted PSU simply because they are too wide. It appears to me that this is a motherboard design issue, not case-related. Also, if you have a long card like the GTX 480 or some of the other high end cards, you will have problems installing it on the third slot because it goes right on top of where the reset/power/hdd led switches go. You would have to push down the card while flicking up the PCI ex switch at the same time to get that to work.
