10.4 is trash...it doesn't support transparency or aero effects.

Still sitting here mad, can't find out anything about this board and crossfire, or anything about RaceOn(simbin) and crossfire support.

Going to try 10.5 now.

I'll trade you issues driver.

I'd much rather be mucking with a driver issue anyway.

Hovering the pointer shows a bubble that states "It is currently running at PCI-E x4 v2.0". If I hit the tab for the other card, it states "PCI-E x16 @ 16 2.0". Hovering the pointer gets a bubble that states "It is currently running at PCI-E x16 v2.0". Does this mean that it's not running CF @ x16 in both slots? If so, what do I do to change that? BTW, I'm using 10.6 if that makes a difference.

The top RED slot is 16x, the 2nd RED slot is 8x, and the 3rd RED slot is 16x. I have tried all three. I think the 4th or bottom RED slot is 4x. Not tried that one.

If you are in 1st and 3rd, GPUZ should be saying 16x on each card.

Are you using the newest version of GPU-Z?

I think this board was rushed to market, veerything points in that direction, not the least the fact that at the time I ordered mine there was no viable 890FX alternative. That SoumdBlaster sticker is pretty stupid too, mine's kinda cocked indicating hasty assembly, just like the heatsink...

And yeah lesson learnt I guess, while CPUs may be alright to buy on release date, mobos/graphics cards and other components are best waited out a month or two. One cannot expect the same design/assembly diligence from companies like the mobo manufacturers as from AMD or Intel.

I just think ASUS has spread itself too thin in it's efforts to be some kind of computing superpower. I hope they don't pull a Toyota. I don't know of another company that has so many diverse products in the market.

Glad you got your problems sorted out, sorry you had to go through the RMA.

And another thing I found out, which may be relevant to some of you:

While troubleshooting my system to fix the problem I had with the usb audio interface, I was advised by a forum user on a recording/mixing/music production board to pull and test my RAM. While doing this I had to pull of the 120mm Noctua from the heatsink, which I suspended on the case and gfx card, pointing it at the southbridge. The temps dropped to the low 30s on both the NB and SB, so yeah, this MoBo needs some planning in the airflow department, regardless of whether you replace TIM/sand down standoffs (both of which I did). I am inclined to think this chipset does in general, since Gigabyte includes a waterblock for the NB with their UD7. Just my 2 c.

Makes sense considering the dizzying number of fan connectors. It would have been useful if they advertised this requirement a bit more clearly.

In conclusion, I would appreciate if anyone had an idea how I may go about using my 140mm Noctua I have handy to cool the NB/SB. My I-Solo is cramped as all hell and it has a mesh grille opening on the side where I dont see how I may attach the fan. Any thoughts welcome and appreciated.
The UD7 isn't really a prime example, GB does that with all their high end boards.
