I just let the heatsink push the capacitor, to bend it fully out of the way would risk breaking it and I am not aware that there is any danger from this sort of thing. I think I have seen other threads on the topic here so just search for it. If you read the manual for that mobo though you will see ...

See: http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=36826&highlight= So, yes it is a tight fit but it fits. I am really happy with the mobo, the fan control is excellent, the voltage controls are good, my only (small) gripe is that I can't find the memory timing controls in the BIOS, they just...

My motherboard has 3 PCI-E 1x slots, what to do with them???

It seems that every motherboard sold in the last 6 months to 1 year has a bunch of PCI Express 1x slots, so where are all the PCI Express 1x cards?? I am thinking about getting a TV tuner or sound card, but can't get both as my mobo has only 1 free regular PCI slot after my other one is using a wire...

Cheers :) , yeah the cablegami was pretty easy with that case. But yes the chipset heatsink gets toasty, haven't yet found a temperature sensor but it is hot to the touch. I am considering a thermalright HR-05 (or SLI version) but the location of the chipset relative to the graphics card might make ...
