Mobo Question or two.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
alright so im looking into getting a 2500k and Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 16GB for my ram and i was looking for a motherboard and i was thinking of grabbing this Asus P8P67 Pro (Rev.3.1).

now i also know about the Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3.

If i have looked at everything right unless i need to use the on CPU vid features of the Z68 or SSD caching the P67 will fit my needs? Its mainly going to be for gaming.

Yep, I'd say that P67 board is fine. And if you don't need the extra features you're saving some cash for other investments. I've seen many people running 2500ks on that board and you should be able to get a really good overclock on it.

With the RAM, do you really need 16GB? Having 4 DIMMs only puts extra stress on the CPU memory controller. The RAM speed is fine, and if you want to you could get some pretty nice timings on that kit, but I would be questioning the 16GB aspect. I would think 8GB would be more than enough for a gaming machine.

Also bulldozer failed getting i5, couldn't agree more!

mmmm might get 8gb but if i do i want to get something with better specs lol.

Also do you think you could recommend a different mobo that i could SLI 2 GTX580 DCII? cause thats what my plan is. max i would spend would probably be $300 but the lower the better. I was thinking of getting the Asus P8P67 WS Revolution but that more of a work station mobo right? how good would it be for gaming?

I think that one will handle a 2 way 580 dcII sli. Even then I don't think there will be that much room between them, so as opposed to a 2 way 2 slot setup you will probably have to provide some extra air flow into the case.

As for that mobo you linked, yes it's more geared towards workbench setups, it's got support for nvidia quadro gpus and the like. I'd just stick with something geared towards the general user.

alright thanks. i did look at the UD7 but it along with alot of other mobos can do my SLI no issues but none of them can do it without overhang on the mobo like the WS mobo. worst case ill pick up one that can do it and ill work out the cooling later lol

Before you buy some expensive, high-end RAM, you should read this:

Well like the other person said the P67 would be fine, and 16gb is way to much Ram. But ig you plan on getting a SSD in the future, which you should, then a Z68 would be your best bet, the caching doesnt see a major difference in chipsets but it is nice to have

I've been researching a new build myself, and after reading some of the Intel SRT reviews and benchmarks, I'm sold on Z68.
