I hope to join this club when the bulldozer comes out...

I just hope I'll have the cash to buy that, the mobo, psu, and another 470 =O

Darn, I have a salt water fish tank I'm starting =\\

i finally solved my NB temp problems
i've reseated it a few days ago, and even changed the pins from the SB to the NB but it didn't help at all...
now...i've put a little fan on the back of my mobo...NB temps dropped down to 36c idle and 43c stressed
even my cpu temps dropped 5c lol

I finally was able to solve my array issue after trying a lot of different suggestions & ideas. I just cloned the back up HD cloned image to the array, obviously loosing whatever was done from that backup until now. I'm just going to have to do cloned back ups more frequently from now on.

Here is just a thought if you didnt know already but that flex stem comes off and makes for much easier placment .
I just pulled mine off my nb this weekend. Did a little modding to my case and added a top front intake 140mm and 2 140mm on the side panel (intake)
It keeps my nb just as cool on idle (35-37c) and lowered my load temps by 2-5 degrees (41-42c)
But where this setup really shines is my cpu temps on load, it dropped them 5-10 degrees, example: Before my load temps on bfbc2 were around 43-45, now after this mod I have not seen it go above 39c , and on starcraft it never gets above 36c after playing for hours (although it does not stress my system very much) I think I am now happy .
Just wanted to share my weekend work with you guys, thanks.

Edit: pulled a couple of pics off my cell phone, crappy pics but it shows what I did , last 2 pics was a before shot

Hi all. Finally got fed up enough with the Crosshair III that I've ordered a IV from NewEgg and am going to rebuild the rig I started on back ni March. Northbridge temp on the III is running 59-60c idle and 70-71c under a load with the system misbehaving, mainly during bootup or reboots - once it's running, it seems to be nearly rock-solid, but it gets old having to boot up to a half-dozen times to get into the OS.

So, gonna scrap out the III and send it in under an RMA to have it replaced; although, recent experience with their support team has been less-than-stellar, to say the least. Maybe I'll find a use for it down the road after Bulldozer comes out, but for now I've GOT to get this build working as expected. I will work with NewEgg on that after I've done the rework and hope they'll take the III back for the high NB temp and overall quirkiness. All my other components seem to pass benchmarking and burn-in tests without any issues, so I've got to suspect it's the board.

Anyhow, I've been holding out for the Extreme, but it appears it is going to be delayed indefinitely, so I'm ripping out the guts of my semi-beloved RedPhive and starting almost-all over. The plus-side is that the red / black colors on the board are a much better match for my Thermaltake Level 10 case, hehe.

So, at risk of inviting ridicule for sticking with the almighty ASUS rather than choosing another 890 board, does anyone know if they have been proactive in addressing the NB temps on the IV on newer boards, and is there a Rev# I can look for in the hopes I won't have to re-do the TIM myself? Or perhaps news of the Extreme's possible (impending?) release date?

Thanks!

Still no date for the extreme that I know of.
On the ch4 it wuold seem that they are getting better on the nb but it is still hit and miss.
However as long as your not hitting the high 70"s and up there are several fixes in this club that work very nice without removing the heatsink
