Omg, the more I use boards from other brands the more I realize how much I love the Asus bios!! Freaking aye man, I can't stress this opinion enough.

Oh as for your question re: overclocks on the P9X79, it overclocks just as good as the rest of the Asus line up because they all essentially are the same. Only the ROG line has better vrm design.

Oh that's awesome, thanks so much for that! This is my first time using Asus boards, I've been comfy with EVGA and AsRock for overclocking. Though for x79 I decided both boards should be Asus. I think I'll put the 3820 on the REIV (gaming) and the 3930k in the p9x79(folding). Can't wait for UPS to get here lol

You cant go wrong with an X79 ASUS board. I personally have AsRock Extreme7 and I love it. I preferred it over my other option Sabertooth X79 for some weird reasons. Anyhow; I have seen some great results with P9X79. It is a great top end board. Obviously, most of the success depends on how lucky you get in silicon lottery. But if you are comfortable with 4.5 Ghz with 3820, it will easily do that even if it has the worst sand smile.gif

Im using the P9X79 Pro and it is fantastic. I'm running 4.8ghz (126.5x38 @ 1.355V) and have been all through summer. Rock solid and the colour scheme is awesome haha.

How much room do you have in your case for starters ?
personally I would go for a pump / res combo for your first custom loop of the dual bay veriety with one or two pumps . But the rest looks solid w/block and rad . More surface area the better for your rad and a bigger res is the go

Fitted this last night....


For this result . 9c less on core 5 than previous run on old w/block

post #3037 of 6506

Yeah its easier for me any way , but you've got tonnes of room so it all should fit in nicely. But I recommend koolance QDC'
s for easy additions to the loop or to pull components out of the loop without having to drain the whole thing thumb.gif

For CPU water block, Koolance CPU-380 water block is the best at the moment.

I just setup my water cooling yesterday.

Is this figure look ok to you? I got 5C delta when idle & 27C delta when playing BF3. Ambient 32 - 34C. I don't have water temp probe, I don't know the water temp.
