ASUS rampageIV extreme vs ASUS p9x79 deluxe

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Which among these two will be better for overclocking?
asus rampageIV extreme (8 phase CPU power design,3 phase VCCSA power design,2 + 2 phase DRAM power design) or asus p9x79 deluxe (Digital 16 + 4 Phase CPU Power Design,Digital 2 + 2 Phase DRAM Power Design)?
The p9x79 has more power phases,so it might oc better,correct me if I'm wrong.
Also what is VCCSA power design?

The Rampage IV Extreme will be, you can't just count the number of power phases because the RIVE uses DIGI+ 2 VRM control vs DIGI+ on the P9X79 Deluxe. I'm not show how much difference there is between them but the RIVE is ASUS's top-end board so it will be built for the highest over clocks.

I would also suggest checking out the Gigabyte GA-X79-UD7 which looks to be a solid overclocker and comes with a lot of great features. It is quite a bit cheaper than the Rampage IV Extreme.

What is the difference between DIGI+ 2vrm vs DIGI+?
What does vccsa mean?
I would have liked the gigabyte x79 ud7 if it came with 8dimm slots,I know that it has 4dimm slots because of better oc stability but we should remember that asus rampageIV extreme has 8dimm slots & it proves to be an overclocking champ!

Hi there:
Quote:
VCCSA: More commonly known as System Agent Voltage. ...System Agent Voltage should NOT be touched, it is supposed to be a fixed voltage, and it powers many things that the VCC does not power. One of the most important is the Power Control Unit (PCU) which controls internal power allocation of the processor. This voltage is to be generated by a separate VRM than used for SVID

Normally you can leave the the VCCSA alone. In a *very* few situations it needs to be upped a notch. (E.G. very high RAM clocks)
But this isn`t a voltage that you should be concerned about.
If you look here:

I posted some "guide" by asus maybe this helps a bit to understand the settings.

Do you really need more than 16-32GB of RAM? There's not a lot of point in filling up a motherboard with 8 sticks of RAM if your not even going to use 8GB of it which if this is to be primarily a gaming computer you won't be.

You are right from your point of view but most of the enthusiasts are looking for 8dimm slots,btw you have a great rig,try to buy newer generation gpu when it comes out then it'll look even better!

Sorry to bring this thread back form the dead, but I have been wondering why the P9X79 Deluxe has more phases than the RIVE, (8 vs 16 for the cpu). What is the difference between DIGI+ and DIGI2 +? Is it enough to compensate for half the power phases? I've been searching for this information everywhere, but cannot find it!
