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.
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.
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 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.
