    hmmm there is no LCD post listed in the box contents does this mean they have tossed it???? in the other reviews of this board it states there is a LCD poster included and on the ASUS website

    You know my old asus nforce2 motherboard also had the temperature probe connector, seems weird how they hang on to that so long without supplying a probe, or even instructions as to how to make your own.

    I also have a q., I hear intel chipset boards often have a very high precision timer chip, do any nvidia chipset board have that?

    @rt182 look at the left out pictures in the comment above, there you'll see the LCD

    You said That you can't use water cooling with the Striker II
    Why is that ?

    I am thinking of getting this MOBO

    unlike some of the recent motherboards, it doesnt come pre-fitted with a northbridge waterblock, doesnt stop you from buying one thou, at the expense of the heatpipes

    Welcome! You can use watercooling on the CPU - but you have to use the heatpipe fans provided to provide airflow to the fins. There's no specific northbridge watercooling version like previous RoG boards though. :)

    A lovely review, but I'm still using a PS/2 mouse! This MX1000 has problems over USB, and the only solution is to use it over PS/2. :p

    Kingston PC2-9600 - fantastically fast and cheap memory. We used it in the review.

    Unless you were to fork out over £100 for a full set of chipset and Mosfet waterblocks! :thumb:

    Well, yes :p but you'd need northbridge, 2x mosphet, southbridge and NF200, plus make sure they all fit with the holes :eeek:

    I was thinking of 4 gig kit that would only take up 2 slots

    do you know if the OCZ DDR2 PC2-8000 1000 MHz 4GB(2x2048MB) Platinum Edition Dual Channel Kit Would work well with The Striker II Formula

    or would ( 2 kits of 2 - 1GB) kingston 9600 DDR2 1200Mhz Non-ECC CL5 from Work better? I am worried about OCZ compatibility With the Striker II

    My build so far

    Striker II Formula
    Core 2 E6850 3.0 Ghz
    BFG 8800 GTX OC2
    Raptor 150 gig
    Ultra X3 1000watt PS
    Gigabyte 3D Mercury Case W/ BUILT-IN Liquid Cooling System
    Ram??????

    Just bought this board along with an E8400.

    Upgrading from a DFI NF4 Ultra-D w/ 3800+ X2.

    The manual states "While in DDR2 1066 mode, ASUS's exclusive technology offers a choice of FSB 1333, providing..."

    Do I have to have DDR2 1066 RAM in order to hit 1333 FSB?

    I have 4GB (2x2GB), of Patriot Viper RAM coming with the board. PVS24G6400LLK

    I have recently purchased the Asus Striker Formula MOBO. Any suggestions on the best and stable memory for this beast? Anyone have any luck using the Kingston PC2-9600 memory?
