You will probably need to manually set the Ram speed and timings in the bios.
Then run Memtest to see if it passes.

My son just received the CH4 and thought the NB standoffs were a little high so he filed them to the same height as the SB standoffs. Said it did look like the heatsink was making contact with the NB but wanted to be certain before he installed it all.

My son just relieved the CH4 and thought the NB standoffs were a little high so he filed them to the same height as the SB standoffs. Said it did look like the heatsink was making contact with the NB but wanted to be certain before he installed it all.
So all it takes is just slightly moving the standoffs? nothing hard?

If that. They might be ok as is. But a good idea to check them based on previous threads. I am think about getting one myself. if they have another price drop I will.
