Are there ripjaws with taller heatsinks? The ones I picked up fit perfectly underneath the D14
DavieG, just looking at the pics on NewEgg, they all appear to be the same. Glad to see that yours fit nicely. As I mentioned before, I thought they would fit, but couldn't guarantee it without pulling off my Noctua.

Where I misspoke was in my saying that I had toyed with the idea of removing the HS from my RipJaws. You see, I have 5 computers and a whole bunch of HSF's, so I'm guessing that was "way back when" I was looking at the Arctic or some other HSF combos.

Ah yeah, I toyed with pulling the HS off a couple of mine once but knowing my non delicate fingers I would have knackered the whole module up lol.

Hi i'm looking for some help.
I am going to be getting a new rig soon with this mobo, now, i'm a bit confused on the ram part. It says DDR3 2000(O.C.)? Does that mean that I have to overclock my DDR3 2000 ram to get that 2000mhz? im not looking to overclock my ram, just my cpu and gpu. can anyone give a little info on this?

EDIT: oh and sorry if this has been answered already.

I think anything at 1600 and above is classed as an overclock on memory at the minute on current AMD cpu's, even though your not technically overclocking your memory.
When Bulldozer comes out that will probably change to 1866 and above.

Yes but it not hard
this board with a amd chip will go to 1600 mhz by default
to go up 2000 mhz you have to set the FSB to 250
the default FSB is 200 ..... 200 times 8 = 1600 ...... 250 times 8 = 2000
there is a setting in the bios DOCP that will set up your memory to factory defaults

OMG GUYS!
I woke up this morning, went to power on my machine, and FAIL!
After pressing the power on light(that was not lit uP) nothing happened...

I tested the PSU by jumping it, started right up.

Tried different plugs around the house, nothing.

I becoming certain that it is the Mobo, because the start button isnt even lighting up, nothing is except the "go button led"
What do you guys think?

could it be the cpu, or does it look more like the mobo?
good news is the mobo will be the easiest to RMA as I got it at Newegg.

make sure the 24-pin connector is connected snug to the MoBo. Try the memtest button...who knows, something wierd could of happened.

are you running ROG connect?
if so, use it to monitor what your PC is doing during startup...this'll help you determine if it's the board or the CPU

checked ALL connections systematically, and ROG wont matter cus it wont even post, It wont even power on. At first I thought it was my PSU. Tested it by jumping it, and it was fine.

The Motherboard wont even POWER ON
It was fine went I went to bed last night. Woke up this morning and it wont even power up...

If you mean the "paper-clip test", it's useless. You need a proper and thorough tester.

I'm using the Apevia but I don't wish to debate whether or not it is the absolute best. It works and works well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...upply%20Tester

It is the PSU. For sure.

I have a lot of experience with equipment that works for awhile and then goes south all of a sudden. Right now, manufacturers are pumping out product of secondary quality and then dealing with the returns. And it does not seem to matter if you stick with quality manufacturers or not. The only time it matters is how courteously/efficiently the mfr. deals with returns.

Some like CoolerMaster and Corsair are wonderful. Others like Gigabyte are ... (sorry, no vulgarity permitted on OCN)

My PSU was a CoolerMaster 1,000 watt (80%) which functioned for a couple of weeks. Then the computer just suddenly shut down. Next, it would not even boot up. And finally, no lights on the mobo, no nothing.

If you do need to RMA the PSU, and you will, I would suggest the US Postal Service over UPS. Why? The much maligned USPS will ship it by air overnight for about $10.00 while UPS will charge more and take at least a week.

Good luck. Buy yourself a tester. You're gonna need it - now and in the future.
