$35. Just trying to get rid of it! It comes with everything that was included in the box.

Did you get to play any games before it all shut down?

Starting on my next build! I haven't decided if I'm going to keep my 2500k and pro4 or upgrade to the 3570k and extreme4. I just bought a 7950 for $260 off ebay today

My new case - NZXT Phantom Full Tower


It's huge compared to my old case


Just a little bit in it so far

Keep us updated mann!

I'm digging all these white case builds as of late. Maybe use RED braided extensions to tie into the MOBO?

blue, I ended up buying that thermaltake. I just figured if I get to the point where I need to sli I would like to have more power than less. I appreciate you trying to help me out though. Liking that new case boss.

I had been playing the mess out of TF2, D3, portal 2 before it died on me. Dear Ester looked fantastic. Just waiting on them to approve my RMA on the mobo. I think I bent a couple pins putting that stupid socket cover back on. Hope they approve it cause that thing was fricked before I bent the pins.

Coyote, hows that 690 treating you?

It is very very impressive. I have never owned a Dual GPU card before, just SLi'ed.

The card uses little power, quiet and cool. The GREEN LED on that lights up on the card looks awesome in the case.

I am having MOBO and RAM issues with my new MSI Z77A-GD80. Doesn't want to boot in Dual Channel. So RMA'ing it for the new MSI Z77 MPOWER.

well shit, newegg is denying my rma on the mobo for the bent pins. It sucks that the thing was fricking defective before I bent the pins but it was my fault. I guess I get to try to unbend them, and if that doesn't work I get to pay asus for a replacement.

putting that stupid plastic socket cover back on when I was sending it back for RMA. I didn't pay attention to how it attached when I took the damn thing off. I know. It was really stupid.

I have done the same thing before.

Used a mechanical pencil to bend the pins back.

re: rate my proposed gaming pc build


Got the mobo back the other day. I seem to have bent a ton of the pins. Figured it wouldn't go well trying to bend them back, so I called asus to see about out of warranty rma or some sort of customer damaged repair/exchange that I had heard about on a couple forums. They basically said that I would be better off buying a new board.

I guess I will try to bend them back. If that doesn't work I am gonna end up buying an all new board and wifi card. I don't know if I would buy asus again because their customer support was pretty mediocre. I am in no way saying that the damage I caused to the socket is their fault but they were generally unhelpful prior to damage. I did like their bios and OC utility though.

So wish me luck. Odds that I get it to post open at 100 to 1.

I have a massive boner for Trouble in Terrorist town. How cheap of a computer do I need to allow me to play such a game?

Depends on how well you want it to look... $700 could get you a pc to play it on ultra, and probably the $500 range can get you medium-high

Got my extreme4 and 3570k installed without any problems

Lets just hope I don't screw it up when my Cooler Master V6 GT comes in... Then on to overclocking!

Edit: What guide did you use when you overclocked?

I was looking at that extreme4. I know someone on here said something about how they liked them. It seems like asrock is getting a good rep while asus is kind of on the decline. If I can't get this one working I may pull the trigger on an asrock. Let me know how you like the bios and overclocking utility.
