    Here are a few I took the other day with my Cannon SD770 IS that I got for a whole $3 at my local GoodWill. It has fantastic digital macro, check it out.

    This is a little thing on a s939 mobo I have, I have no idea what its purpose it, but its cool looking.

    And this is of my 8800GT that is currently in my s939 setup, such a sleek and sexy cooler design.

    It's for overclocking. I have it one on my MSI K8N-Neo4. I'm debating bringing it back to life but I would have to replace the VRM caps first. I want to say even my old MSI 975X Platinum Power-Up Edition had one of those as well. I've always had pretty good luck with MSI boards. Granted I've never had an issue with an ASUS board either.

    I like the brass screws, they go well with the Noc fans.

    Yup! , or need faster fans! I'm running the Noctua http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=66920&vpn=NF-F12 PWM&manufacture=Noctua ATM

    Im going to say heck with it and grab the same thing but FPI is going to be high.. way higher!

    You guys recommend fans way better then this so i don't need to spend half the day bleeding out the system?

    If you like low noise then it's good. But to Over clock it Blows big time! Fans @ 100% = cheap rad High FPI at low RPM'S + low 50's C

    Ultimate release newer fans not means are better than the olders...

    You should take the NF P12 I had 3 of these fans on a 3x120mm radiator and I guarantee that worked really well and had high performances.

    They are very good for the radiator you bought yours is a radiator with low fins density and that Noctua newer Fans are Case fans.

    Sure but that'll be long.

    I want to be sure the cards are fully functional before removing the stock cooler since the Gainward one has a sticker on a screw:(

    I don't recommend that brand, Palit is the same, steer clear of them if you want to have the possibility to give maintenance to your cooler or even change it.

    I am also tempted about going 3way, there is no necessity but it would look sick with a triple bridge etc.

    when i needed to unplug the usb3.0 header from my Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3 today bcs i wanted to install two used Noctua NF-R8 and another NF-F12 PWM in the back of my case they take out heat, instead of only having two in-take fans on my Corsair H100 rad this happened :wtf:

    bcs the connector was kinda stuck:

    What a mess i never expect that from asus ROG motherboards.

    Biostar motherboards that doesnt not support even SLI or CrossFire seems better !

    All motherboards have those connections pressed on over the pins. I blame it on the connection for the USB3.0 in the case or user error. Don't believe me, look at your motherboard, there is nothing attaching the plastic to the motherboard, it is just the pins that hold it in place.

    the thing is pushed into the holes alright. there is a very small tolerance on the size of the holes, if they end up being even a few hairs wider, it wont fit tightly over the pins.

    cheaper the quality = bigger the tolerances.

    I've only has ASUS USB 3.0 brackets pop out like that. 22 Z77 boards, 16 X79 boards and counting...and only ever the red ones. Black ones seem to not have the problem. Red brackets on other brands have the same problem, so I actually don't blame ASUS, I blame FOXCONN.
