So I'm not sure if this thread accepts Omega builds too. But I ditched the standard extreme. I like the look and 4 x nvme drives. Plus with the robust vrm cooling I could go with a separate ek velocity waterblock. I decided to redo all interior acrylic panels, re-sleeve cables and change the layout of cooling runs. I believe this looks so much better!
Have to tidy up some cables to finish build. It is an awesome looking and awesome performing board BUT the cold start issue is driving me nuts. I have until Monday March 9 to return board and I may. The so called tech support is horrible. I first called about issue on Feb 4 and no one got back to me. I called again today, wasted an hour on phone, got very upset and then someone from Asus finally called back. People who spend $750 on a board deserve better support than that.
The Prime 30th Anniversary board I tried before this one had same cold start issue.
Other than that this board is crazy good but this one flaw so far kills it.
Are you sure that all the switch buttons are in the default position? If the LN2 jumper mode is set by default (disabled), will activating it not solve your problem at startup?
Built by Xidax but I ended up grabbing it a few months back:
