    You know what, Asus gave me an exactly same IO shield with my spec board like yours. I mean it is not the usual IO shield with the metal parts coming outside but a sponge like thing is given and on the top of it, perhaps an aluminium or some metal foil to reduce EMI perhaps.

    Not exactly, since that's 7950 Memories (T2C are 1250 Mhz spec'd, 7970 get R0C which is 5000 MHz spec).



    So, just 7950 on 7970 PCB.




    Hrm...extra 7970 PCBs being used...


    Anyway, if it unlocks...I'll be posting about it! :p

    Got my 3rd mech KB, Ducky Shine 2 78 Version (7 LED, 8 switches) and it's a beaut up close and personal. They weren't kidding about the various switches, the num pad's blue alright, make a distinct click when you hit them.

    I think that the different switches across the keyboard would drive me nuts since some cherry mx switches require a bit more force than others. It's the exact reason why I got rid of my membrane keyboard, inconsistent feel cross keys.

    Well, you can get those that come with only one type of switch, my fave (and for most gamers I believe) is the Cherry MX Red switch. My CM Storm Trigger and Armaggeddon Black Hornet MKA-3 are both Cherry MX Red. I'd gotten the Ducky Shine 2 78 simply because it looks damn good.....yep, I can be so superficial at times.:eek:

    Why did you omit the paste from the hardware order?

    Sorry to be picky, but pictures that are in focus look a lot nicer:)
    I agree with t_ski.
