AWESOME!! THAT'S the piece of info I was missing!!! I also COMPLETELY missed that guide, even though I searched before posting questions! DOH! +REP for being so damn helpful. smile.gif

Very good and easy to use BIOS, good onboard cooling etc.Read some reviews on it and watch videos on youtube.I know it will give you everything you want. If you are not satisfied for any reason, send it back and go with Gene.
Good plan! I'm still on the fence about Asrock, just because this Gigabyte board is one of the FEW times over the years that I strayed from Asus. Everytime I do that, I get burned! Not sure I feel comfortable taking another risk, and risking another restocking fee. Not to mention another Windows install. That's getting painful due to a slow net connection. Windows updates take me HOURS. I might just get the Gene. I'll sleep on it. smile.gif Thanks for the advice.

That's my plan. After doing X-fire with a pair of 4890s a while back, I didn't find it was worth the money / mess / power consumption / noise level. I didn't see much (if any) performance increase in games. And hell if my old 6870 could run Skyrim at HD resolutions with HQ textures, I'm sure my new 7950 will be MORE than enough for me. I just need lots of SATA ports, and all these mobos have me covered well on that front.

I had to raise PLL voltage a little (1.85v) to achieve stability. Temperatures are high, still acceptable for 24/7 use given that my air cooling system is rather quiet. OCCT will remain as my stress test of choice as it is much more sensitive to unstability compared to IBT or Prime.

i just got a great deal on G.skill Sniper series 2133.....it was 2 dual channel kits....i am currently running mushkin blackline 1600, but it is a quad channel kit.....do you think i would see any gains by switching to the 2133?

the dual and quad part are irrelevant 2 x 2 sticks make up 4 / quad and quad 2133 will be better then quad 1600 unless the 1600 are crazy cl6/7 sticks and the 2133 are cl12
I should game.

I know you can only OC so hi with the 3820, so i was wondering which cooler should i get for OC'ing? Would a H100 be better than the existing H60 that i got? I can get a good deal on the H100 for like $70 after MIR, but it mihgt be overkill if the multiplier for 3820 only goes up to 43x? can i hack the 3820 to OC hi'er than my old 2700k?

No hack needed. Only need to use Strap. You can look in this table some of the overclocked 3820:-
