Sorry, I meant to say case. Don't know why I said mobo. And I got a lanboy air. It didn't come with any screws at all.

Nevermind. I found them. They were hidden in a secret compartment on the case that also leads to the Temple of Doom.

So i installed a corsair A70, but the end connector that goes to CPU fan on the board is 4 pin and the A70 connector is 3 pin. I plugged it in and it fits. This OK?

Yeah, it's fine. There's a notch on the motherboard 4-pin header that indicates how to plug in a 3pin cable.

On another note, what bios version are the B3s coming with? Should be 1.8. I tried 1.8D (which I believe is the same as 1.8 final) and had an issue where I'd set the multiplier in bios to 44, but in Windows and CPU-Z it wouldn't go higher than 42. I forgot what I did but there's a fix for it. Also, auto voltage seems to be stock at 1.30 (higher than actual spec and what previous versions of the BIOS had). I've dropped mine to 1.28 and reduced my OC to 4.4 for the meantime. CPU-Z at idle is reporting 0.0196 more vcore than what I initially set, and even more at load. So, @ 1.28 in bios, 1.296 idle in CPU-Z, 1.336 or something at load. vdroop has no effect.

I'm still on my B2, haven't initiated an RMA yet. I've flashed to bios 1.91 which you can get from here. It boots much quicker. Even on 2x hdds in raid0, the time it took to get through the BIOS and Intel RAID screen used to take longer than actually booting windows. Now it's pretty even at around 25 seconds total.

Anyone having luck upping the BCLK via bios? I can't even up my BCLK to 100.5 without it doing a restart loop. I can adjust the BCLK up to 105.5 stable via the MSI control center though. Don't know whats wrong with the bios :/. I know upping the bclk isn't a good idea, but I've been doing it on my old motherboard for over a month without any trouble. As long as I stay in the 107- range it's fine.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but 3 pin wouldn't let you do PWM?
