[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 235

post #2341 of 13131
so i got it up and running used only one stick of ram at two gigs and got it all set up
then i go to bios changed the settings and such for the ram so it can handle it and what not
then zap right above the ram a little chip just flashes
I laughed thinking what else could go wrong now
Bah

apparently the little chip that is above the dimm 3 slot on the crosshair 4 just split in half
Fyi i just got this friday everything
apparently im not allowed to actually build any more computers first time this has ever happen to me

Now IM wondering
it was hanging on and such the little chip where it split
i pushed it back together
(knowing that this might cause a problem)
But will it cause any problem if i try to put any more ram on it other then just one stick
im afraid that im going to wreck this board cuz i just got it all set up finally and this happens to me


BUT over all i love this design not bagging on it at all
looks amazing had all my neighbors tonight gauking at it lol case is huge to aso much room


SO ya any help would be awesome

I can't believe that Asus released these CrossHair IV Formula boards to the public with such a glaring fault, the problem may be easy to rectify, but only if you have the confidence (or previous experience) in removing a heatsink assembly. Personally I don't so wont be trying it. I do hope that Asus have at least aknowledged the problem and are addressing it!

I don't think it's a design flaw, but a manufacturing issue. The Chinese, the people the Japanese have outsourced the job to, are notorious for doing sloppy work & cutting corners. You'd think that they would have kept the jobs in Japan after witnessing what has become of the USA & the greedy people who put profit above a nations welfare.

Either grind the screw ends down or RMA. ASUS has unconditional RMAs in place for this. Do not RMA back to your reseller as I believe that later inventories have it fixed. Newegg, for example, could have a bunch of the heat mongers in warehouse.

Edit: Frys is about to run out. Let them. When they get more, and they will, they will be better.

ALSO, if they run out of formulas and the extreme is released, return your formula and they will replace with extreme.

Just watch...
I live in the UK. Last time I had to ship a board back to them directly, I had to send it somewhere in Europe - so it's a major pain in the ass.

I think it's a choice between "get a different board" or "fix it myself".

Oh, it's a little cooler in here right now and I've got 54°C on the Northbridge and 47°C on the Southbridge. Still pretty hot when it's not actually doing anything.

Do not pass go do not collect $200, RMA that sucker. You can't repair it and I don't know what it does but it seems like it could be a voltage drop or limiter of some sort. I just looked at mine...

You're speaking about this right?



That's not repairable w/o voiding the warranty. So it's best to let ASUS handle that mess. If you got it from newegg or some other reputable company with a limited buyer's warranty then I suggest you send it to them and let them deal with Asus. I would do that even with the NB issue.
