Want a balance of MAX overclock I can get... while keeping CPU able to chill out and not decrease it's lifespan more than the times I use the OC or CPU when gaming or rendering. Don't need 4.7Ghz for facebook haha.
Tried all those settings and my computer basically gave up. Turned itself off and reset everything. I'm having other issues ATM but I'm sure ill figure it out. Thanks though!

Ill post some 4.3Ghz for you and don't be stressed about 4.7G sooner or later you will get there. Just takes time to grasp the bios thumb.gif

Thanks but it's cool. I have run a stable 4.3Ghz overclock very easily with just setting the Turbo Ratio to 43 and letting the MoB do the rest. I managed to get the, what seems to be classic, 125 x 37 BCLK at 4.625GHz stable so I'm happy. This is with every power saving feature on as well so I think that's about the best I'm going to get which is fine with me. Especially since my OC is stable... yet somehow full stock or stock with voltage boosts are not haha.

Dry it off for a few days then pray to the dark gods.
Was told a handy tip for getting moisture out of electronics, cover the board in uncooked white rice. Rice will draw out all moisture over a few days. Techs us it on dunked phones all the time.

I think that would be a good idea if it had got soaked. I've got a little bit of water in the NB. I think evaporation should do the trick


NB? Northbridge? Those are extinct in Intel world.

Raystorm is not the greatest choice for a fat spreader like 2011. It's better suited to 1155.

Also weird is that the Sabertooth with its 'military' components have the same caps and mosfets as the p9x779 iirc. Makes me wonder how much of the military grade stuff is actually bs. The only ASUS boards that stand out are the ROG ones. They're clearly better when it comes to VRMs.


That's incorrect. The whole PX79 line uses the same vrms with the deluxe getting more stages and ROG getting their own special ROG class fets.

Idk brah, i'm just saying what's on that list. I think you're right about the ROG mosfets tho...

The more I read this thread the more impressed i get considering that budget boards and coolers can still do 5ghz quite easily with this chip. The extreme6 is only 189, almost 200 less then the RIVF

That list is wrong though.


Anyways, I bought a base P9X79 for 175 off amazon ftw. It's got the same fets as all the rest. The thing with Asus X79 boards is that they are all SOLID and all share the same basic platform with the difference being the bells and whistles. It's the X79 line, everything is enthusiast class.

Oh ok gotcha, I saw it on someone's sig maybe he should take it off lol

Also that's pretty sweet. Can't wait till I get my parts biggrin.gif I'd most probably get a X79pro ( goes with my builds color scheme) or a x79 Sabertooth. Or even an extreme6 if my wallets being uncooperative.

Also amazon prime ftw. Newegg sucks tax ruins everything.

Wow thanks for all the input, really appreciate it smile.gif

I also looked at Asus site and compared P9X79 vs P9X79PRO vs Sabertooth and like most said all pretty much use the same VRM/PWM design.

I think i'll go with regular non PRO, that PCI slot will be very handy (have a old XFI Pro pci SB) and I dont plan to go SLI/Xfire in the near future either.

Thanks again, I hope to join i7 3820 club very soon cheers.gif

Raystorm 750 rx360 + Sabertooth/P9X79 pro + 7950
Or Swiftech h220 + RIVF + 7970?
Risks? I used to feel the same way till I had a crack , and now that I do w/c I will NEVER go back wink.gif

OCD girl why you make mistake ? Did you rush the swap over ? When you get some more squeeler in your pocket , get those Koolance quick disconnects on the block and res and you will never have to drain loop again thumb.gif

Yep its the operator not the equipment tongue.gif I had a leak for a week laughingsmiley.gif picked up on it when I could smell the coolant dripping on my h/dd's didn't melt on me so I was lucky . My first loop the 760i thermaltake was leaking out of the tiny res it has . I had to change the coolant anyways cause it was brown from P95 12hr runs . Normally the coolant is green biggrin.gif Ended up swapping it out for a pump/res combo of the XSPC dual bay variety thumb.gif

Speaking of leaks, I've got a 2500K that is still a lil bit corroded on the contacts due to a slow leak. Chip still works, clocks to 5ghz lol. Knock on wood, I got lucky there. I was using BP compressions on my htpc. This was the point where I said enough is enough, no more false compressions and I swapped to all xspc compressions.

It's getting sorted, I think it was excess water from the top rad seeping under the board and creating a short. I'll try it tonight on my test bed with the air cooler. If not I'll try and rma it.. Asus can always say no..
