I'll see how it goes long term. I don't think I'll have any problems. Had the same mod on my X58 board, an Asus P6X58D Premium. Didn't think I needed it for this new board, but I was wrong.
Any other flaws with this build that need pointing out? It's only human nature to focus on these things. I do it with other peoples builds
I mean, I have a freakin trackball for christ sake! Shame on me!
