Just read an amusing review about this board on newegg.

His fault for not researching.

Installing the Sapphire 5970 (4g Toxic), only have last 2 bottom slots left to use (pcie x16). Ok, so its a gpu issue... But Gigabyte would of given me more open slots.

Then why didn't he research it beforehand and bought the GigaByte one?

No IDE port. What to do with all my large ide hd's?

His fault for not researching again.

IO ports in back poorly aligned with IO plate making hard to plug in usb, lan, etc, in my HAF932 Full case.

BS, I have the same case and it works fine.

Only 2 USB3 located in IO panel in back. No internal usb3 to hook up elsewhere.

No idea what an internal usb3 is and why would you hook it up "elsewhere"...

Northbridge found to be overheating (85^c in bios) - thermopad paste was not even touching the chip!.

About the only valid con lol

ASUS failure to fix this issue after Months of postings even on their own site/forums - there is no excuse for not addressing this problem of having 1/2 of these mobos having NB heat failures.

I was disillusion with ASUS in being a company of excellence, but finding that it too is duplicating the new USA, that one can't believe in no more - its an Obama
Other Thoughts: The Southbridge, Northbridge sinks are 1 complete assembly.

Don't try to self-fix. I tried, messed it up as I over-torqued a screw standoff and it snapped in the southbridge sink.
Board is no longer any good. Am out $$$
/facepalm...
I find it sad how people try to make this board look bad because of their own stupidity.

Get a Corsair Hydro Series H50 and it won't matter.

Can't XFire that 4Gb behemoth you retard.

Quote:

We're up to SATA III now and this guy insists on running IDE? And the storage capacity of an IDE drive is a thimbleful of what can be stored on a SATA II HDD. Time to make the change I'd say. Ahh but then Gigabyte gives him IDE right?

Quote:

Too bad he doesn't know how to straighten his MoBo so that his I/O panel lines up with the I/O devices. It's not the case, it's not the MoBo. It's the retard putting it all together.

Quote:

Yet he's running a 932 Case that does not support front panel USB3 connections. Further proving my "retard" theory.

Agreed Squirrel.

Something tells me that Obama could do a better job than this guy. I dunno, but I think that if you can't perform routine maintenance such as tightening a heatsink standoff then you shouldn't be trash talking anyone. I don't even understand why he went off on the "new USA" rant. It had nothing to do with his issues.

It shouldn't surprise me either that he rants about the "one piece heatsink", but... ...it does.
He's not even smart enough to contact customer support and REQUEST a new standoff and screw.

Like you said squirrel a bit of research could have solved a lot of his problems.

He's gonna XFire 4Gb 5970

Thanks for the chuckle Squirrel.

My temps are kind of awful:
CPU: 38C (stock heatsink)
MB: 32C
NB: 50C
SB: 43C
Ambient: 21.7C

These are idle temps taken from the bios.

But I will hopefully solve these temp issues with one of these

I was reading this thread for 3 weeks so far I got this motherboard 2 weeks ago. Once I boot the system I went to bios then I found there was problem in NB ( 71-72 and rising so fast ). I fix it by shorting the NB stands by ~1 mm. Its working great now ( 42 ideal 55 lode ) Maybe I will try to change the old yellow thing in next few weeks.

Special thanks to bavarianblessed cuz he give us the clear idea ( +photo ) about the problem +rep. Thank you every one cuz you give us many many useful information about every thing about this great motherboard.

Add me to the list please. I will try to add the photo soon.
