I know how you feel. My hip as been acting up when I stand one place and after I have been walking for a while. I need to do a little work on my machine and have been waiting for the latest insults from body to settle down. Hope you feel better soon.

I can see one of the small fans but the other one must be microscopic since I can't see it. Come on, where did you hide it?

I like those dust covers. I wonder if Asus sells them separately? All the PCIe dust covers I've seen don't look as nice and are sold in kits. I would have to buy two kits to get the covers I want and not be able to use most of what I paid for. That just galls my cheap side.

Looking good Brian. I found the fan in the middle of the board hard to get the wires hidden, the back one went in fine.

No, the visible one site on top of the TUF armor.

Well that is what I am saying lol when I installed my board one area where the fan goes I just figured one fan was good enough it pretty much looks the same

Well If you had read your user guide

The other fan is right below the red circle, it has a top that covers it. But if you looked in through the io shield you would see it.

To clarify. I replaced the supplied 35mm fan with a Noctua 40mm and allow it to run full speed, it's quiet. The other one I set to run at 80% full speed and turns off below 30C board temp. The ASUS fans run at over 7000RPM.

Still makes no difference in temps for me anyways but when ever I get a chance I might go ahead and do that

I just figured it would be a lot easier to put them in before I installed the MB in the case.

Well, guts/Gal it's Halloween and I just received my first Trick or Treater.

Whether it's a Trick or a Treat is yet to be determined. But, all this talk about the fans has made me wonder. When they first came out with the thermal armor, Asus said it was to keep the heat away from the components of the board. Now, they give us fans to blow the heat from beneath the thermal Armor. Really? What marketing gimik will they feed us next? But, it really does not matter, it is a very good board. Being a good reliable board it all that is needed to sell it.
