    Asus ROG :rockout:


    to the OP: with that cooler, set UEFI options to auto OC and watch as your CPU reaches 4.6 without a problem ;)

    I guess you haven't heard of a lot of the issues going on with their Z77 line-up? Mainly having to do with BIOS/UEFI.

    OP = Original Poster ..... You :D


    What issues with their z77 ?? :wtf:

    That UEFI sets "secure boot" by default thus preventing dual boots ?
    .... :confused:

    The issue's only with the Z77's, right? I love Asus mobos, quite an ROG fanboy myself. To OP, nice stuff there, great choice going with the HD7970!:toast:

    the manual states I don't need to take off the back plate on the my asus z77 deluxe board what does this mean anyone know?

    This is probably in reference to adding corsair H110 the cooler to your set up. Here watch this and it may help. Corsair H90 and H110 Installation Guide - YouTube
    I believe they are talking about the CPU back plate that came stock on your mobo so you can add the one for the one for the corsair H110 .
