    Thats not issue at all call Asus and have them send you another. Some people say Asus support sucks but thats not been my observation. My old rampage came with two screws missing on the north bridge I called Asus and they were sent within 3 days no charge.

    Thanks for that link Grnfinger, I have been waiting over a month for Asus to answer my email (probably better to call them)
    Mine Crosshair III was OpenBox and came with nothing.

    I laugh at EVERYONES cable management (especially the Pros):p


    (but its more a laughting "With" you than "At" you)

    :respect: Asus Maximus Extreme :roll:

    I think this was one of the first ROG baords that they did, it was this or the "Blitz" but i have
    been using the Max X for almost 2 years as my main work rig, Other Systems have come and
    gone but this Max X has delivered the goods over and over....

    I'm lovin it still.... :rockout:

    I know that case, i remember getting that exact case, i painted teh inside metal flake blue, it looked sweet, but then i started benching and got a torture rack and sold that TT Armour.

    hope you get soem luck with that camera, i'll take a pic tomorrow of my Max X rig, it's just a workhourse case without a side panel, but oh what a great system it has been...

    To say the least, I am disappointed by the quality of the Maximus Formula. The first one I had came with a bent LGA pin. I fixed that easily enough though. It later died after about a year's use when I tried to acquire my 3870's bios. Asus support was absolutely horrible. They insisted it was a grounding problem. If you get Sonny Brown, ask for a different rep. The one they sent me for my RMA had a bent IDE pin. I could have fixed that but decided against it and RMA'd it. While I had my second one the LCD Poster died. So, now I'm on my third one. The sound card dies...yay... I have not been able to install the JMicron drivers for a long time. I get "No JMicron JMB36X SCSI adapter found! Setup program will terminate!" I got that for the second and third boards. The first didn't have that problem. This board is having some problems reading PATA drives also, don't know why but it's not because of a bent pin.

    I took my first board to 500FSB. Don't remember what the highest I tried on my second was. I haven't tried going past 450 with this third one. Brought a pair of Crucial Ballistix 667's to 1200Mhz on the first one.

    Would be a great board if it didn't have so many damn problems.

    Here is my Rampage 2 Extreme running an i7 975 @ 4Ghz 1.2v under a Prolimatech Megahalems with 2x Scythe 1900rpm fans. Keeps my 975 at 53 under full load on the cores.
    3x2gb Corsair Dominator 1600 CL8 ram @ 8-8-8-24-2t 1.64volt (xmp Profile)

    [​IMG]
    Cooler facing up due to the two upper fans exhausting air from case and two back fans blowing air into case, when I replaced the fans I put the new fans in the same way as the old fans.

    Not the best cable management but it does me

    This board is the third ROG board I have had
    1st was the Striker 2 Formula, worst piece of snot board I have ever used. It just sucked. IMHO of course, others have had no problems, for me they never ended.
    2nd was the Rampage Formula, best board I have used, went for well over a year with zero problems ever, sold to a friend of triprift's and mine, when I went i7, still going stong in his puter.
    3rd Rampage 2 Extreme, great board, zero problems as good as if not better than the Rampage Formula, but only had it for 6 months not as long as the Formula so still need another 6 months trouble free out of it and it will be the best board.

    Maximus Formula owner here. Really like that board, but had to slap a fan on the NB heatsink contraption, for some reason that thing got incredibly hot.

    Also, I wanted to take it off once, but I did not succeed. How the hell do you do that :laugh:

    Its pretty difficult to take off because it is glued on there pretty good. To take mine off I did it right after the system was running an intense game so it was nice and warm this made it easier to pry the sucker off. You can also use a heat gun and a screwdriver to pry it off. The only problem is that it is possible to rip the IHS off the Northbridge by accident and possibly even tear off the X38 chip.

    pop it in the freezer for maybe an hour, use the dimm slot a fulcrum and with gentle pressure pry up on the NB heatsink it should pop right off
