I already made a post about it, still waiting for a reply. Hopefully an ASUS employee sees it.

Hi all... Forgive me if I've missed something earlier (very active thread) but what memory do you recommend for overclocking this board? The memory below is pricey but is it worth it? There are others on the QVL that cost a lot less.

I went with 2x4GB G.Skill Sniper F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR 1866MHz, faster and cheaper but was not able to find on pccasegear.

CL9 is not faster than CL7.

Chances are good it would be stable though.

Hey, I'm building my first computer and will soon be a very happy owner of the Maximus iv gene mobo. Will be using the computer mainly for video/photo editing and production but as it's a fairly powerful build, might as well play some games on it!

Here's what my build looks like:
Asus Maximus IV Gene-z
Intel i7 2600k
Antec 920 cooler
Asus GTX570 Direct CUii
Gskill RipJaw X 2x4GB 1600mhz
Corsair HX750w
NZXT Vulcan case
500GB HDD (will be upgrading/adding more drives sometime soon)

Right now all these components are in the middle of being shipped but I should very soon get them and I can't wait to start putting it all together!

This seems to be a good built for me besides i've heared from a lot of guys that NZXT cases lack of quality (breaking off plastics, imprecise sheet metal and so on) - this is your personal decision.
Just always pay some attention at the selected memory modules.
They should be inside the ASUS QVL for validated and tested memory in combination with the GENE-Z.
I've found these four infos about G.SKILLs with 2x4MB inside the QVL:
- F3-12800CL7D-8GBRH -> LINK
- F3-12800CL7D-8GBXH -> LINK
- F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL -> LINK
(- F3-12800CL8D-8GBECO ***These are mines, four of them (16GB) running fine***)
What about running the OS on a SSD?
I've never gained so much performance plus before since i'm using a Crucial m4 with 128GB in combination with SATA III on the GENE Z and Win 7 Ultimate 64Bit. Maybe you buy yourself a more cheaper vga like 560Ti and get a SSD instead?
What about the PSU?
