Yep have to agree with bluray - I haven't got any issues with play back at all

I'm thinking of building a similar build with the FC5 EVO and the FM2A75 Pro4-M - http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/FM2A75%20Pro4-M/
I'm guessing I will have the same issue with bending the pipes? The Pro4 is the only ASRock board that has HDMI. The ITX board wont work because of the DIMM slots. Comparing pictures side by side, I would say the FM2 board has a marginal improvement on the CPU location (like half a cm or something!)
How much thermal paste did you use? Do I need 1/2/3 MX-4?
I've already brought a ASRock CIR header. If it wasn't for that I would have probably gotten the MSI ITX. It's a shame more manufacturers don't support CIR.
