I should charge ASUS for a new tube. It was seating the cpu twice on the borked board checking for bent pins when the DIMMS would not boot. Grrrr still cheap enough but its a pain to strip the build down just to reapply the TIM

yes it is, with the risc to bend pins, happens damn quick.

My 980GTX just came back from Asus RMA ( with dealer in between ). 6 weeks total door-2-door.
Havent tried her yet, looks like a brand new card, or refurbished, defo not the card I'd sent in.

You will. 8700k and DDR4 ram is about good as you can get for VR today.
Will be interesting to hear your thoughts once up and running.

I am eyeing a new build here soon myself.
