[Official] ASUS ROG Rampage IV X79 Owner's Club - Page 163

post #1621 of 9809
NEED suggestion guys!

I have been trying to get much info from posts in this particular thread, I had my 3930K for more than a week and I still haven't decided which board, of the three Rampage, to get. I built a maximus setup with the i7-2700K last January and this time I am eyeing for this i7-3930K with of course, the Rampage.

My dillema is, should I go for the extreme,, the formula, or just the gene. just like the maximus setup, I am only eyeing for this build with 2x670 or 2x680, or will it give me really a big difference if I am doing 3 or 4? And also on OCing, am not planning doing really heavy overclocking, I have done Ocing on the maximus by just using the bios. But this time I am planning to go custom water for colling this particular set up. So for the size of memory, am already happy with 16GB and not planning to get bigger than that, unless what I am doing on my computer needs more of it.

For my needs, am actually using my computers mainly for gaming, and video and photoediting, and of course, just basic stuffs.

So, what would you suggest, go extreme, formula or gene? I do love the formula and gene having the Xfi, and not need more than that for now. Am I correct that the only benefit of having the extreme would just be the number of DIMM slots, the way you could do your overclocking, and not much difference even if compared with the gene?

if ur going to use single sli setup, two graphic cards. and not much of expansion cards that need high speed such as hybrid pcie ssd, and u don't own a full tower case then u can simply pick one of the two u mentioned, I personally use one graphic card setup and a sound card for now on the rampage extreme, but my sole purpose of purchasing the extreme motherboard is the flexibility when upgrading in the future, if ur budget allows and u have a case that support extended atx form factor, definitely go with the extreme, this thing is the overclocker and gamer dream by all means, the BIOS and software is so loaded with option to the point of scaring u and make u feel like u still have a lot to learn about computers.
u won't go wrong with any option their all great,
congrats on ur purchase in advanced smile.gif

rampage iv formula can still support quad sli with the addition of on board x-fi, the iv extreme is made for more extreme oc and subzero oc, plus other additional options, after reading the specs ur best match is the formula, cuz its atx and has on board audio, I don't think u will be missing out on anything, but of course if u want to go with crazy tweaking crazy overclocking and can make use of the supplied oc key then go with the extreme, to be honest with u at the time of my purchase budget wasnt an issue and I wanted to go for high end, but it would have been much efficient if I went with the formula, it has other features that the extreme doenst seem to have such as asus freecrash. congrats again.

by the way, what RAM chips are you using, I am seeing many people using 2400 but not getting the speed, is 2133 much more advisable, Am eyeing the Ripjaws Z 4x4GB 2133 for this built. What do you think?

I called it as i saw it Right? EK- TIM Indigo Xtreme

Google Indigo Xtreme. See at the bottom, it's a trademark of Enerdyne. You bought it and never thought to google it to confirm its a good product? Not trying to slight you but I didn't want others to think that it was a product born of EK's engineering brain trust, lol.

That's what I am running...

not many people have 2400 because it's not really common, and only a handful of lower speed can be overclocked that high.

Not to keep pushing these 30mn chips, but the Sammies can run 2400 with at very low volts.
