As long as it's not electrically conductive and not on the surrounding contacts should they be exposed, it shouldn't mess with your RMA status. Considering that you would have RMA'ed the board for that and their MoBo division would have been up to their eyeballs in needless returns. You aren't the first and you will probably not be the last person to have done the fix. It's too bad Asus was not proactive in their response to the issue and supplying the correct length standoffs to all registered owners.

Does running only one stick of RAM really make that much of a difference on the OC? I've been running four but some people ascribe to the single stick theory. I'm still getting my feet wet, but would really hate to go ~2 sticks of my 8 Gigs of RAM.

So would 2 sticks be fine if I remove any or is it an accepted 1 stick that I should be aiming at?

I can't say I agree with it cause eventually I'd like to have all 8 in at 4Ghz otherwise what was the point of buying an 8 Gig kit?

from what i have dealt with, 2 sticks gets better OC results, 4 you can do decent with the cpu but really have to lower ram all the way around

Ok really getting frustrated here! GPU 1 pass, GPU 2 pass, Ram Pass. The only thing I can think of is that BOINC is causing the problem specifically Collatz Conjecture. Testing that theory now using Prime Grid.....

Ummmm okay...

You kinda lost me after RAM Pass...

I cannot think what BOINC is at this time.

M'kay pulled 2 and 4 slots. Now Net(I know this is not the result of the RAM ) is painfully slow while I'm sitting here on infinite hold with Asus Motherboard listing to the Asus Advantage Elevator schpiel.

Okay kewl.

My RMA process is started and just waiting on confirmation of the replacement board.

I let it be known about my stability issue as well since the first board I sent back didn't have anything like this going on. Don't know if it's indeed the board having the stability issue or what but it only happens when I'm putting the CPU under a load like opening more than 5 browser windows at once or having more than a couple open and having a Windows Update hanging around in the Start button waiting on restart. So I believe that it is the board. I run Call of Pripyat at Max settings w/o issue with browser windows open. Not once has my system complained about that. This is with AVG and Spybot S&D being functional. So it's possible this is a Safari issue but doubtful that it's any other component on the Mainboard or even the PSU. Only when there is an abundance of white and strain on the CPU.

So I'm just sitting here playin some MLB 2k9(Viva los GIGANTES!!!) and waiting for Asus to call my RMA# @ corporate email.

Good to hear. I too have good news

Thank you AMD/ATI for the great 11.2 drivers *insert sarcasm here*
Rolled back to 10.7 and poof works like a champ again. No RMA needed just better drivers

I have had trouble with the new drivers on my 5870’s crossfires I contacted XFX and they tried to help but in the end I had to roll back to 10.10. Sad to see 11.2 is not working. I would have thought that they would have fixed them. Thanks for the update. I will keep 10.10 I guess ?

10.8 worked for me too
10.12 and + did not work

XFX said my problem is when it changes from 2d to 3d or 3d to 2d.
I wanted tell them it’s not my problem but i was nice and just rolled back my drivers.

I wanted to try 11.2

I have probably missed something in the 900 pages but I have a couple of questions.

1.I have 2 GTX580’s and the Lucid chip just doesn’t support the games I play, I tried using the SLI patch but it doesn’t work…I’m guessing because I’m using the Lucid pci-e slots 1 and 4. so if I use 1 and 3 do you think the SLI patch will work? I would just try it but as you can see (see link) I would have to drain and re-hose everything.



2. I noticed (only noticed when I plugged in the 1100T) that the NB and SB are hitting 55c and 60c if I overclock….is that to high?
