Sorry man, I can't agree with you. I really am pleased with my 3820 (coming from an AMD 965BE), it OC'd extremely well for me. And since its half the price of your chip, it gives me money to sit on til the Ivy Bridge 2011 comes out and then I can get a better processor.

It's been really tough decision, but it's harder even when if I go with the 3820 no money actually comes out of my pocket. Selling my current rig along with other misc items and ill actually have a little more $ in my pocket. Going the 3930k puts me back about $250 out of pocket which isn't a deal breaker either.

If you are going the 4 way sli route the 3820 bottlenecks, as evident by Wermad's 4 way setup with a 3820. Unless you're really going to load up with a hexacore, 3/4 way sli, and a high end quad channel memory setup the money spent on just having x79 will get you much better performance elsewhere, especially since the RIVE is one of the most expensive boards out there right now.

I plan on picking up another 7970 at some time so this is a very valid argument. Like i mentioned above im getting the board basically with no money out of pocket.

See what I mean. You guys are killin me tongue.gif I got like a week to decide. Sit n a 3820 til IVY or just go out and get the next step up and pass IVY.

I am planning my new build with the RIVE motherboard and a 3930k. I was going to wait for IVY Bridge 3770k but I think I am going to pass for now.
I am looking to buy some RAM and now that some time has passed what is the best memory for this mobo? was looking at Corsair Dominator GT, G skill, or maybe Mushkin? I also saw that the Samsung 30nm Extreme low voltage dims clocked up to almost 2700 which is insane for a $40 pair of ram. So what do you like on this mobo or what would you buy now that you own etc. etc.?

I got 32gb of the dominator gt 2133 cl9 1.5V kit, but that's because I really cared about the clocks and the voltages required to get there. The samsung wasn't reliably hitting 2133 at 1.5V. I just powered the system up for the first time today, and the XMP settings worked effortlessly. I bet there's a bunch more room to push them.

Having said this - if you don't need the speed (and most don't) the samsung is a real bargain. Vega went with a 2400 kit(this one I think), but it's 1.65V so bear that in mind.

It took 1.49Vcore to get stable at 5.0 for me on the 3930K with the 32gb at rated speeds, now I'm re running at 4.95 to see if I can lower the volts a little. I'm still getting used to the bios, so we'll see.

Dominator GTs are great for nearly everything. Depends on what purposes you plan to use the ram for as well. I went the Ramdisk route and crammed as much ram in as I could. Makes ssds feel slow, even pcie ssds. It's even enough to load all the applications you plan to use for quite a while on the ram as well. On the other hand if you're going just for benching you can't go wrong with 2400 4gb GT dimms and for Ramdisk purposes1866 8gb dimm GTs or 1600 8gb standard dominators are really the way to go.
