Awesome thread guys, +rep for both

Still deciding on x79/sb-e. I wouldn't mind a R4E as I once owned its great predecessor

X79 voltage will remain at 1.5v, Ivy will lower it to 1.35v. I'm sure it will still support 1.5v though. More info here:

Thanks so with x58 I would only be using 1.5v would this effect the overclock ? and if yes will it effect it negatively or positively

The sandy bridge-e ram kits I've played with have been 1.6v

what year do you live in? all the nice ferraris have AC option these days

What boggles me tho is how you guys have had your perception warped so effectively by brand marketing. what has turned practical minds into suckers for vanity?

Well, say less car weight = faster.

More dims = more weight. Thus CPU Core overclocks slightly less...

Less weight = more efficient.

that is true, however nobody says you actually have to fill all your ram slots. what they have done is narrow the end users options - something you'd expect a high end board to have lots of. whats worse is that most people are just fine with it, we have a saying in my native language for that which sort of translates into: "you want a lot - you get little, you want little - you get nothing at all."

LOL, I see what you're sayin' I feel the same too, if I were to choose that would bother me if I could get the extra slots or not for later upgrading to more RAM.

That is why I think the Asus board will own the Gigabyte in sales.

also keep in mind that the extra dimms take up space - space that can be used for overclock effective items, like extra, more efficient power phases, in order to provide the cpu with cleaner power.

I don't know, From the pics of the Motherboards we have now it seems most of that is at the top and bottom of the socket. Some have alittle on the left side, But not that much.

Yea, I see what you mean. What I wrote was just an example, and may not apply to board x and board y. I'm sure, however, that there are items that get compromised due to the extra dimm slots.
