    I'm with Arlo -I mean ProfJim- Would be nice if Samsung would give us some more magic RAM at good prices. Maybe even with a pretty heatsink?

    And so all the headlines keep exploding about "MAJOR" USB 3.0 problems. pfffft! There are no major problems. Unless you consider possibly having to reopen a file on an attached USB 3.0 device a major problem!

    Right now I'm 80% sure I'm going with a UD5H board again. The new BIOS looks good and I don't see any big surprises lurking. I've already bought some sleeve that I think might coincidentally match the board and I'm looking to redo some of my sleeving anyway.

    If overheating is a problem again, I'll just delid again. It's easy, simple, and fast if you know what you are doing.

    So far, for mini ITX platform, only Asrock made a change to its cpu socket to leave a good room for bigger cooler. That came with an 8pin being in the middle of the board. Im eyeing this board for future and first miniITX build.

    Did they keep the CIR header?
    The only Asrock board I have, I bought because of the CIR header. Works good in my HTPC and my Logitech remote.
    Wish more manufacturers would put CIR headers on their mini boards.

    Sorry for late reply. Honestly I didn't knew what's CIR header is until you mentioned it. Anandtech has a picture of it and I'm just guessing there're four row on pins near the supposed USB headers like the one on z77e ITX but it's not labelled CIR. Asrock official site too doesn't list it in its z87 spec.

    I hope this is the CIR you meant, taken from z87e ITX

    Yeah people usually plug it into a front USB 2.0 port, then the Asrock transmitter plugs into that port and you can use a remote to turn on the pc and run programs and MCE.
    Pretty handy for an HTPC.

    Ah, almost forgot. Ordered my Z87x UD5H/4770K/16GB Kingston Predator RAM.

    Yep, hopefully delidding will not be any harder than IB. I'll wait until someone else does it first just in case Intel did something different.
