    That's why I asked about this a couple times already. In the (Taiwanese?) video linked a few pages back it looks like the black top part with the ROG logo is just clipped into the lower part of the armor. If you can't use these 2 installation screws I'm worried the board might bend a little bit once installed or wont properly align or it will bend when pulling out a graphics card of the first PCIe slot that is in that region of the board. I don't know, it just doesn't sound good to me at all to not use these 2 screws when installing the board in a case or motherboard tray.

    Thanks I guess I will look at that video. I had started to watch it but skipped around a lot.

    Anyway take a look at this pic:

    It appears that the one screw hole for the VRM heatsink fan brace is rusted? I have not tried screwing the screw in it yet. I assume it will not cause issues with functionality but I am a bit disappointed to see it. It did not rub off so it is not a compound that I am aware of. I am wondering if others have this issue. If the screw hole works then I will live with it although I rather not have the blemish there to begin with I suppose. Raja any thoughts on how I can address this?

    Also, are there instructions some where on how to remove the chipset cover. 2 of the mounting screws are covered by it. I see one screw for the cover but was not sure if there were more. Or is it not necessary to use those to mounting holes?
    To remove the PCH chipset cover, just unscrew the one visible screw that is located over the on-board M.2 slot's armor and located above the bottom PCIe slot. Once you remove that screw, the M.2 armor cover is attached to the black PCH cover and the whole thing lifts off easily as one piece.

    I looked at the two screw holes on my VRM heatsinks, and they don't have any blemishes there. Is that the only blemish you see? I scanned over my three mobos using a magnifying glass this afternoon and could not find any scratch, discoloration, or sign of use, even though the PCH cover on all three mobos had an polygonal smudge outline as if there used to be a plastic sheet lightly glued onto the cover, but someone removed the plastic sheet on the PCH cover on all the mobos.

    There are also 11 screws on the back of the mobo that would require you to possibly unscrew the mobo from your case's standoffs after you have installed it, depending upon how big your case's mobo tray cutout opening is:

    Two screws mount the VRM heatsink.
    Two screws, outlined in silver, mount the "Republic of Gamers" block.
    Two screws, outlined in silver, mount the I/O cover.
    Two screws mount the I/O cover's heatsink.
    One screw mounts the "SupremeFX" audio cover.
    Two screws, outlined in silver, mount the top part of the PCIe armor. You would need to remove these to replace the CMOS battery that is hidden under the top area of the PCIe armor. It would have been nice if these screws were accessible from the front of the mobo, but I understand why Asus put these two screws on the back for a clean look on the armor.

    It is possible to use all 9 mounting holes. The armor is two parts, you remove the screw that is visible between the 3rd and 4th PCIe x16 slots and you can then remove the lower right part of the armor from the top of the board. Once removed you have access to the mounting screws underneath.

    Sorry for the pic quality, but this should give an idea:

    With the Tou 2.0 you have really two main places for rads, the front an top. Do you have only one rad or another on the front? That is a lot of positive pressure with intake from top, front and bottom with exhaust only out the rear. I can't wait to see your build in that case. Even if I could afford just the case, I would have to then change my 140mm rads to 120mm. Too much to change.

    You also missed my question on the thermal paste/pads you use. Will you change your thermal pads on the monoblock?
    For thermal pads, I just use the ones supplied by EK both on their MSI Pro Carbon and R6E monoblocks, and also the thermal pads included with their M.2 heatsinks. My three favorite thermal pastes are Thermal Grizzly, Noctua's NT-H1, and Gelid GC-Extreme. Everyone seems to have their favorite thermal paste and favorite toothpaste, and those are my three favs. I have bought a lot of Noctua air coolers and fans, including three NH-D15S, two NH-U12S, and one NH-U9S that is used on an Asus Z170i Mini-ITX build, and I still have some tubes of their NT-H1 and it works very well.

    As mentioned, I just have the 360 rad on top, and three Corsair HD120 RGB fans on the front. The glass panels on the Tou 2.0 are have gaps around the panes, so they actually work like exhaust vents with positively-pressured airflow without the need to actually add exhaust fans. So even though my front, top, and bottom fans all point inward, the airflow goes from front to rear and also exits through the side panels' gaps. A good way to check your airflow while you adjust your fan curves is to slowly move a burning stick of incense around the outside of the case and see where the smoke enters and exits the case. In Win shows an airflow diagram for the Tou where the air goes from the geometric holes on the bottom floor up through the top geometric grill. But I place the 360 rad on top with the push-pull intake fans pointing down because the best way to cool the CPU is to use intake fans, not exhaust fans, pushing outside cool air through the rad. If you look at the Tou 2.0, while you can mount a second 360 rad on the front, the small slits around the front glass panels do not provide the best airflow. So the best rad position is on top. That was why I mentioned the Tou has quirky airflow in my previous post.

    I also have both the black and white Corsair 570X cases, a Phanteks Luxe tempered glass case, and a Phanteks Evolv ATX tempered glass case that I am currently modifying to use the front and top glass panels of the 570X, to improve airflow and aesthetics. So when I am done with the mod, my Evolv will look very similar to the 570X on the exterior, with a much better interior than the 570X. My six Tou 2.0 cases are my favorites and I am enamored with its mirrored glass, partly because I have been creating glass art myself since 1989. I make everything from matching sets of glass bracelets/necklaces/earrings for my wife to large 5'x5' stained glass picture windows. People have spent more than $10K on a single oil painting that just hangs on a wall, so at least the Tou 2.0 is functional art, and it will outlast all other components in my builds, so spending more on a PC case that you like is never wasted money.

    Speaking of the Phanteks Luxe tempered glass case, you should also consider that case. It is less than half the cost of the Lian Li V3000, but it has excellent flexible configuration options and it fits a 420 rad on top. It is not as big as the V3000, but it looks more stylish. I am using my Luxe case as a file server, and I like how I can cool 7200-RPM hard drives using front and rear push-pull fans. I am using the Luxe's three 5.25" bays for an*Icy Dock Black Vortex 4-Bay hot-swap drive cage:

    Well I just got a reply from EK about the 10 G chip situation:
    "Thank you for contacting us.
    Yes, the stock heatsink is to be removed from the motherboard and the monoblock will cover all the essential cooling including the 10G chip, otherwise, it wouldn't be made for it. The manuals are still in works and once the monoblock goes out of pre-order, they will be added to the webshop. The monoblock will cover the 10G as well as we got information from our development team.
    It's going to be this part of the monoblock which replaces the stock heatsink 10G: Thank you for contacting us.
