Asus A8N32 SLI board need help!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just got this board 30 minutes ago and I suddenly noticed that there was a problem. I running WC now and the water block that I use needs two long rods that go from the back to the mobo outward. There is some rectangular metal bar in the back of the mobo where I normally set the rods thru. On my old motherboard all I had to do was to unscrew the metal bar that was on the back, but with this mobo there is nothin to unscrew. Any suggestions?

Can you screw the rods through the nuts that are in the support?
I went through that with my system to simplify the TT BT install only I used screws and had to grind off some of the heads to clear the cases base.

try not to tighten the screw too much, if u do you'll add presure to the CPU which then push into the socket and ended up jamming the damn thing. It happened to be before and all i did was simply loose it a little bit

only thing i cant understand is why your won't come on,i own the premium not the 32,but that plate is held on with to screws and a black plastic surround for a standard 939 amd heatsink,it should just fall right off when the screws are removed the surround..but least you can use your water block so guess its ok?

Video or chipset? Are you starting with a fresh XP install or a carry over?

It has a foam backing that is stuck on the mobo. It comes off if you push the nubs that stick out the mobo side. It leaves no stickieness behind though.
