When you say ROG EX IV ....do you mean the Rampage IV Extreme (RIVE) ? Anyhow....you lost me on all your RMA's and bad HW...sounds like its been quite epic, unlike my "Upgrade Build" months ago which was "non-dramatic" ;)

Actually yesterday I picked up a 1 TB WD Portable HD which is USB 3.0....thought I'd finally try out my USB 3 on my RIVE and honestly thought I had "finally" found my 1st glitch with this Board / System...would not detect either my new portable HD or new 32 GB Memory Stick...I know I had the USB 3.0 "enabled" in the BIOS....wtf....

....double checked BIOS and had the Asmedia USB 3.0 Controller "disabled"....enabled and all is good Impressed with the speed difference tranferring files via USB 3 vs USB 2

Yeah, that's the board I'm waiting for now. I've given up on the 2 Sabretooths. Guess I gotta dig up the receipt and do another RMA, this time with NZXT on that friggin' Kraken.....

Guess I had better get my a#@ crackin"

Oh well, learned a lot about these new bios settngs and can hardly wait to try the oc instructional...

I had better get a fresh bag of marshmallows ready just in case.

Still lowering the voltages on the x58 system. Only down to 1.3 volts @ 4.2 Ghz but running fine still.

Yeah I think a nice oxy acet wrench would work wonders for increasing the air flow through the case.

Or how about putting it in a 100 ton press. Nah, I still like the explosive ending like in the movies.

You know, use a thimble of explosive and take out 6 or 7 blocks. Of course the damn pc would still be sitting there unscathed.

Just want to c how well ocing on 1 of those ROG boards is. Should be fun!!!

Ok. Finally got everything working except the Kraken which has 2 loose wires. Using the H80i ftm. A few new pics!

The new mobo is great and no issues whatsoever!!! YAY!!!

So it's a new case, the Lian Li PC V2120 is HUGE. It dwarfs the HAF X.

Now the pics show the 3 titans but two r going up for sale shortly. Btw, sorry for the lousy pics.

Edit: Now I have a quad sli bridge,....mwahahaha!!!
