I took mine apart today to swap the mounting screws but then thought if I did that the SB wouldn't be getting a good contact so I ground them down to match the shorter mounts. Right now with my room temp @ 80f the NB is @ 40c and with out a fan aimed at it., now I am happy!

Anyone know the newest BIOS version for this board? It usually takes some time to get posted on the asus website so maybe someone got it from elsewhere.

Hoping to get my 720 beyond 3.5 Ghz, it just doesn't wanna go further even at 1.475v.

Well I got my crosshair on monday. Spent the whole day setting it up. Once I popped everything in and started it up I went into the BIOS. Within 50 seconds my Northbridge hit 99C, then shut down the system. WOW ASUS, I dont know what kind of crooked handed morons were building these boards, but this is a MAJOR DEFECT. I spent tons of time trying to reseat the heatsink with the thermal tape removed and thermal paste added, tried removing the spacers and some screws, couldnt get it to stay below 60C. I was so furious I had to leave the house otherwise I would have rampaged through a lot of expensive things. Now waiting for newegg to replace :S I pray for their souls not to send me another defected one.

I own the C3, and I'm really happy...

But the extreme + a hex core sounds nice.

Reseating the Northbridge Heatsink assembly was actually a 30 minute job. Seeing as there was no way for me to actually decrease the height of the Heatsink, I took it off and saw where it was only half touching the thermal tape, I put a dab of AS5 on the top of the chip, put the heatsink back on, put the screws in and viola, +15*C less temps.

Was:
  • 80*C while playing Mirror's Edge
    76*C while running Prime95
Now:
  • 64*C while playing Mirror's Edge
    62*C while running Prime95

Stable at 4.1GHz. Now I just need to get a better watercooling system... This Thermaltake Bigwater 760i isn't going to cut it anymore.

Whitey!

was a hell of alot less trouble than I thought it was going to be. The longest part seriously was taking it out of the case (that's a serious PITA), my Maximus Formula required a hell of alot more work... Had to scrape off the caked on thermal compound, and they had these plastic clips similar to the Intel Heatsinks... Blah.. Bad memories for only a 2*C difference...

Maybe you'll get lucky and it won't have that issue... Would hate to void a warranty if it wasn't necessary.
