    If you don't care a lot about sound i don't think you need one with this board as it has a nice built in one but for me it's just that I'm addicted to creative sound cards. Also sound for me is more important than the graphics in games and movies. Add to that you will need a good high quality speakers if you want to really hear the difference if you decided to install external sound card / AMP.

    I'm actually going to have the same setup as yours as I have the ZXR and 2 of ASUS 770s ready in my office. you made me worried now
    I've read on other forums that the ZXR can get pretty warm on its own. So with potential heat emanating from the ZXR as well as from my 680's in a sandwich config has me a little worried. It also makes routing the ribbon cable to the DBPro an eyesoar, since i use the SPDIF on my home theater receiver when i switch from my desk and back i don't really wan't to drop it.

    So I guess we're never going to see this DavTrade guy again as long as I'm here. But I'll try to track him down for you guys so we can straighten him out.

    As far as I go, I have 4 USB 3 external hard drives connected at all times and put my computer to sleep at least every single night, and anytime I leave my computer.

    I will RMA the hell out of a C1 board until we get C2 since it is a known bug that Asus employees have gone on record to say was known and falsely said was already addressed.

    I see i think you are right. but anyway when I receive my board I will try running the ZXR above one of the two cards and will see the deference it makes in temp if it's that big then we really have a problem here


    Also, I have a question guys regarding the C1 issue. If I connect a USB3.0 device in a USB2.0 port will I face the same problem here or it's only with USB3.0 ports in the motherboard ????

    So I've been playing around with the PC now for a hole day and I enable EPU because I liked the idea of Away Mode since I leave y computer on most times and never put it to sleep when DL or running certain stuff. But what I don't seem to be able to do is manually change it's profile to any other setting than High Performance. Taking into consideration that I had set it up in the UEFI and restarted the computer a couple of times already I don't understand why it won't change profiles manually. If someone has experience working with this feature please Inbox me or reply to the post. It is most appreciated.

    Since all 16X slots are shared, i wonder if i would still be able to run SLI if i moved my second video card to the very bottom 16X slot to make more space for air flow in between them when using a center 1X slot? I have a 3-way SLI bridge that would fit if it comes to that.

    Can't wait to get this board! Just waiting until someone confirms they have received one with the C2 stepping as I often work out of an external hard drive/thumb drive for school. Will definitely be worth the wait!!

    Well I talked to newegg livechat, asked for a price match, and the rep gave me a 15 dollar gift card.
