Good question!

I believe the 24-pin cable may still be different. The 24-pin cable I have for my AX1200i says "AX1200/AXi Only" on it. No mention of being "AX/AXi" compatible.

I just love it when people start cutting into things to make stuff go where it clearly isn't supposed to. It just makes sense, doesn't it?

Like this guy?

Bought a RIMM when he needed a DIMM. Notch didn't line up, so he took a Dremel and cut his own notch. When that didn't work and he had to return the RIMM, he used Bondo to fill in the notch he made.

Heh, thats a good one

Reminds me of the Electrician who read "Make sure Ram Makes Good Contact" and decided that in order for that to happen he had to put a Line of Solder along the Slot/Stick.

There was a lot of magic Blue smoke that day.

As has been said before, it's gonna be hard to justify such a high price, but here's hoping those PSUs absolutely kill the vreg and r/n suppression.

More or less expected, these units will raise the bar for the premium segment (essentially re-position it), also 6x PCIe for the 760i?.. that's a first and it's quite impressive. It's hard to argue with the price considering they're in a league of their own currently.

I still would like to see hard-switches for OCP at least. Less software only control
