I think I remember reading that having your single gpu in any red slot other than the first is not optimal for performance. Have you checked to see whether or not you're impacted by that? Wouldn't mind bumping mine down there if it's very close, haven't wanted to check badly enough to overcome my reluctance to reroute my cables, yet.

It performs @ 16x exactly the same as in the top slot. As far as I can tell there is no difference.

EDIT: I don't have my memory in the recommended red slots either for the same reason with no noticeable difference, although I am not OCing the memory itself, only the cpu/nb. See profile pic

Dug out the manual and found it on page 2-25
"In single VGA card mode, use first the PCIe 2.0 x16_1 slot for a PCI Express x16 graphics card to get better performance."

It is probably minimal difference but I think I will test it...on the extreme...when it arrives tomorrow since I had to pull out the PSU anyway and RMA it. My guess is that if the extreme shows/doesn't show a difference when benching the gpu in the lower x16 2.0 slots vs the top one the Formula will probably have very similar results(assuming it doesn't say to the contrary in the Extreme manual in which case I won't waste my time). Just using a single 5870.
Need to go to Fry's today to pick up a temporary replacement PSU until my HX1000 gets back to me.
Any recommendations on a 750w+ PSU that they carry?

The 1st and 3rd slot doesn't give and performance difference. I use the lowest 16x slot I can for a single card to help with NB and cpu temps.

Seems silly to put that in every single manual that is in print for absolutely no reason...keep in mind I can only really use 1 card so I'm looking for every single frame, 1c, etc I can get...small difference might be worth it to me but not others =)

Also silly to put in the manual what ram in compatible with your mobo when you are using a noncompatible set that OC's like mad on it.

That's true but in the first instance they are adding things they can be held accountable for and in the second they are choosing not to add statements they can be held accountable for =)

Bought the Formula on Sunday. My local Microcenter store matched NewEgg.com's price. Woo!

I haven't had an Asus board since the Socket 478 days. Love it so far. It's noticeably quicker than my Gigabyte 790FX.

One minor annoyance is: That onboard audio popping issue. Ugh.

Here's my validation: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1419603

Didn't know they match Newegg! Shoot! I just picked mine up from Microcenter with at least $40 off as I also got a 1090T. So it was $200 after the $40 discount for the motherboard and $260 for the CPU. Forgot there was also tax. The only downer...

Impulse purchase...
