post #4171 of 13131
Finally broke twenty thousand with a score of 21834 on 3DMark06 with a 4.0 overclock not bad I guess for my system but going to end up burning my processor up using 1.55 volts

will they take they replace the mobo coz of that?
as mentioned, try a little more force. another thing, the cooler is using standoffs similar to mobo standoffs, and from time to time,some of the mobo screws do not come off as the stand off is just turning freely caused by rotation of the screw which still screwed on. see if you can grab the standoff w/ some angled tweezers and try to remove the screw. if all else fails, I would just rma, complain temps are crazy, and hope they will issue you a new one. good luck

nice! im close to breaking 25k w/ my sli fermis, but Im contemplating changing platforms soon because of the limitations of my setup, I think the fermis can do a lot better then this, overall to be honest. I'm seriously thinking of staying w/in the Asus ROG family though

Im using the hack to make sli work on this board, its great, but updates are agonizing slow. I really would just like an sli certified board that has an ek water block available for it. so my selections are few atm. I love the whole asus rog theme, its just so darn special, and makes me feel special too

Rampage III Extreme looks like a good one, and EK water blocks for it, I would have went the intel way myself but my better half put limits on my funds

Does anyone notice that the ram slots for this board suck? It takes alot of pressure to get the ram in right and the lock does not work at times.

tianh I haven't had a problem with the ram slots, it does take some pressure alright to get the ram to lock it but pretty much all the boards I have used in the past were the same but I'm not sayng you don't have a problem with yours, so your saying your ram doesn't lock in?
