i bought a UD7, but depending on whether or not this vdroop thing is srs and whether or not i can use my case w/ the xpander, i might switch.
this is overclock.net... overkill is a 4 letter word
Nope thats not it at all. Through my time investigating and my calls to asus I have come upon the conclusion that the ROG Xpanders were made for the RAMPAGE III Board. Those were enthusiast boards and the Xpander "Super-enthusiast"
It appears that they were a limited production item, and very few actually exist. They have been out of production for a long time.
Also youu would have to mod your case. Take it to a local welder or metal shop and show them how the mother board fits in there and how the pci slots align with it, then place the rog xpander on it and get new measurements so they can cut that section out and raise it.
