    Noticed my 2700x seems to stay at 4050 or higher on all cores all the time. Not sure why but recently it stopped boosting to 4.35ghz but my guess is the latest bios I used caused this. It ran fine with first release.

    Apparently this is a big annoying issue with these keyboards.. mine sounds like a bunch of springs pinging off each other when I type on it. I had thought about maybe using some deadner or closed cell foam on the inside to dampen the noise. Anyone else notice this? It's pretty damn annoying!
