I have all the parts I need and will build it this weekend. However, there are a few things I'm not sure about.

1, I have both windows 7 and 8.1.,cans which one would you recommend me to install? I will be gaming at 50%, 30% normal usage! and 20% entertainment and video.
2. What software should I install right after installing OS. My motherboard is rampage iv gene, and cpu is 4930k. I heard people saying that rampage motherboards are pretty old technology and therefore the installation DVD comes with the motherboard may contain old software. Should I download it from asus website or install in and update it?
3.should I do stress test? What software should I use and for how long?
4. I'm thing to purchase a APC to protect my rig. My PSU is AX 1200i. What wattage of APC will meet my PSU's demand?
Thanks in advance.
1. Do win 7 first
2. Use the disk that provided then go to website for updated software and let windows update do it as well
3. Yes Prime 95 27.7 and above . Prime for 2 hrs on blend to begin with . Peak temps will show themselves after about 30 mins or so
4. What @Mega Man said about apc's
5. Do you really need that ? I would be using that money on SSD's and getting a couple of awesome GPU's wink.gif

Thank you for the input.
I currently have 2 EVGA Titan black superclocked edition. My case is Corsair 350D, so it can only fit 2 GPUs. I was going to buy as 860, but concerned about not having enough power, so I jumped up to ax1200.

...still, 2 mobos and 6 GPUs hit, 4 PSUs in a puddle - all told, well over one liter of cooling liquid pulsed out (5 pumps were on) in just a few seconds until I could hit the master kill switch....we're talking 'Bloodshed Red' on the curtains, windows, and the carpet in addition to the aforementioned components...the whole thing looked like a crime-scene photo with 'blood splatter' everywhere

...miraculously (Divine intervention claimed !), once I cleaned things up and waited 24 / 36 hrs, I tested out all affected components, and EVERYTHING works smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

...btw, one of FtW's setups also had a coolant leak just now, loosing about 1000ml > that Murphy guy is going around trying to cause havoc ! You folks better check all your fittings, and don't answer the door bell when Murphy comes calling sniper.gif

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

Ouch...What happen exactly? That fitting looks like a Swiftech black compression. What coolant were you running?How on earth those two pieces came apart? The small piece is from the back of the fitting (1/4 thread)?

Sorry to hear such news but glad everything still works.

You're right about the fitting type (specifically, 45 degree swivel). Not sure exactly why it happened, other than the metal where it sheared off is kind of 'grainy / sandy' in terms of consistency. Coolant was a mix of 1/3rd distilled water and 2/3rd EK "Blood Red ( mad.gif )" cooling liquid

While it was a big mess, I'm real glad there was no lasting hardware damage, though the surrounding curtains, carpets and other furniture took a hit...next time, I get clear liquids, not the colored stuff tongue.gif

Anyone know what the highest BCLK is on the 4930k and 4960X on Asus Rampage 4 Boards and on any board?

My buddy just hit a 190.47 BCLK and I cant find these records.

Depends on every chip, part of the lottery if I'm not wrong.

...your buddy is getting close - per HWBot, highest is 193.15 MHz for RIVE (w/ 4930K) http://hwbot.org/submission/2452915_behzad_reference_clock_rampage_iv_extreme_193.15_mhz

...and for RIVE Black, it's 191.47 MHz
