    I have started to run out of storage already and i was tempted to get another m2 drive, however i thought i would try an move the existing m2 drive to go under the heatsink. I cant get the 3 screws to budge on the m2 heatsink. Has anyone else had issues getting the m2 heatsink off under the graphics card? Its not too much of a big deal as ill get another sata drive.

    guessing like MSI, handled through a 3rd party company - ASUS has been pretty good with cashback deals so MSI needs to look at whom they operate with haha

    Nope. Mine was submitted on Feb 22nd. With their “up to 20 days” means by my calculation today is the last day.

    Yeah got the same reply. So sounds like the 20 day turn around was to approve your application not to complete payment.

    Just looked at the T's and C's

    After the validation, the participant will receive his money transfer.
    Usually ASUS proceeds within a time period of 60 days after validation.

    Dear Christ no! Did everyone get paid in the end? I know it was a bit like getting blood from a stone...

    Got my delivered today, came in this super big box, when I saw it I was like WTF.

    Anyway the computer has some lights inside, is there a way to control them somehow, like switch off etc, they keep changing colours from green to red and yellow etc?

    EDIT: I think these are the Phanteks RGB LED Strips, any way to control them within Windows?
    EDIT:2 Anyway, a bit of searching and I found that I needed to download Asus Aura software, it allowed me to control the lights the way I want :)

    I don't like changing colours too much, my keyboard is red and so is my mouse so I went for a solid red as it matches the rest of my equipment.

    I have mine on flash and dash gradient so it cycles through all the colours.
