ASRock 870 Extreme3 & CM Hyper 212+ Tags: Motherboards Heat ASrock Last response: March 2, 2011 3:06 AM in Motherboards Share trickynick March 1, 2011 11:33:05 PM For those that were following, the problem on this thread was apparently caused by the Hyper 212+ heat sink. Apparently the bracket underneath the motherboard was touching the tray, apparently causing a short. (Yes, standoffs were used) Anyone know why it would be touching the tray?

If your thinking about trying to fix it, dont. Youl end u voiding the warranty. Get a refund and buy a new fixed one. | Report abuse trickynick March 1, 2011 11:48:37 PM Wouldn't just RMAing with NewEgg with a replacement be sufficient? Have to RMA the RAM anyways, one stick is bad. | Report abuse tecmo34 Motherboard Master March 1, 2011 11:54:39 PM Have you verified that back plate was installed correctly per specs, with the plate flat against the board?? http://www.coolermaster.com/upload/download/485/files/H... What did you do to fix it? | Report abuse trickynick March 2, 2011 3:06:50 AM Used the stock cooler that came with the CPU. Since I didn't install it, had a friend do it (who is in process of opening a computer repair shop in my small town) and I assumed she followed the directions. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>ASRock 870 Extreme3 & CM Hyper 212+> Related ressources: ForumAsrock 870 Extreme3 Ethernet driver ForumAsrock 870 Extreme3 Ethernet driver ForumASRock extreme3 870 ForumASROCK 870 Extreme3 R2 0 problems ForumAsrock 870 Extreme3 R2.0 Forumthis thread ForumASRock 870 Extreme3 Blue Ram Slots Question ForumAsRock 870 EXTREME3 alternative ForumWhere is the mouse connector in Asrock 870 Extreme3 ??
