Nice - I'm going to have to take a look at your build log - do you have one?

I have never done watercooling but I will only attempt it once I have used my computer for a year two.

How much have you overclocked by? I would like to add it to the list of overclocking achievements for the board if that is ok with you.

I'm such a dummy - a case of working too hard today. I'm glad I have a holiday tomorrow. Got the link - it's in your sig

I really like the acrylic tubes. How did you do the bends? And how long did it take to conquer that method?

Also as you can't squeeze the tubes anymore, how hard is it to bleed?

Haswell gets hot too quickly. What temps you get at load (@ ambient temp)?

The tube bending takes a lot of patience and practice. There are a few guides on youtube. Just search primochill acrylic (sorry, cant link because youtube is blocked at work). I had purchased some tubes from TAP plastics to practice on before doing it on the color tubes (Primochill).

You just have to find the right tight bend form. I basically used a PVC pipe connector to get the bend I want and used a t-square to ensure they bends are 90 degrees.

Bleeding is actually easier than regular tubing. I think its because the tubes are rigid and the bubbles just pass through like nothing. I'd done builds with regular tubing and the rigids are 10x easier to bleed.

Haswell does heat up fast because of the glue intel uses on their IHC, which is why I delidded. My temps are low to mid 70s at around 1.4v, which is really good. Without a delid, expect 90s with just 1.2ish volts.

4.6Ghz?

Is that a delid? Doh..I got ninja'd

Well I was convincing myself that there was no way I would delid, but I begin to change my mind...

I'll aim for 4.5GHz...crossing fingers

Great setups I see there...I dig the red PSU I thought it was an ROG PSU for a sec lol!

If you get lucky with the cpu lottery, you can hit 4.6ghz with 1.2v, which is max volts for a high end air cooler or high end close loop water cooler (H100i, etc). Temps should be around 80 ish. Might want to see what kind of cpu you got before abusing your chip

I delidded through vice and hammer and let me tell you, its an interesting feeling when you hit your new $300 cpu with a hammer, LOL.

And what were the temps on stock?

I didn't even test it out stock. I was shooting for 5.0 and knew whatever chip I got, I needed to delid. So I delidded new out of the box, lol.

PS : A little question, Ai suite 3 cause stuttering in your system ?
Nope. There is an updated bios that may fix that on asus site. Some have also said the new bios helps with higher overclocks but didn't help mines.

I have the board as well, just no pix to prove it yet. Will take one when I get back home.

Which settings should be used for overclocking with this board? Set everything to auto an just increase the Vcore and multiplier manually? Is there anything else that might make things more stable? I'm AIDA64 stable for 6hrs at 1.280V (static Vcore) and apps but not Prime95.

Hi i was interested in buying this board, but my impression is that this board does not have headphone amp, despite the fact that some people at various places have mentioned there is. That makes me reluctant to buy it because competitors do have headphone amp ( like gd-65) and i have 80 ohm headphones (DT-770), which could benefit from an amp. So my question is whether my reasons are justified for not choosing the board, and if indeed this board does not have an amp. Or should i just get it and then later get a sound card or something.
