My ambien is pretty low atm, around 15 ºC in the room. Thats why I asked, in the summer we can get over 30 ºC and it worries me. I suspect that the TIM is not working right or something. The VID is 1.15v atm so temps should be pretty low.
At least with the other cpus it was lower even with more volts on them so im just wondering what could be wrong.
Thanks for the info and the link. I hope to install the extra memory for tomorrow and see if I can get some OC done.

Thing is, these chips tend to go hot and if u want to hit high clocks under load, u definitely need custom water cooling. Unfortunately, closed loop units cant cope with the amount of heat produced.

How noisy is the fan on the Extreme 9? Looking for a board for my 3930K.....

Thanks in advance.

Hey mate, I have Ex7 and SB fan is whisper quiet, u can also adjust its speed thru bios. Knowing that all AsRock X79 series use the same SB heatsink/fan, I am pretty sure Ex9 will be the same. Mine runs all the time and I dont hear it at all and my rig is about 1 meter away...

Okay, I appreciate that. Narrowing my choices down & it's one of them, kinda the leader really. I had been looking online & no one has mentioned the fans on it. I should've assumed it was quiet, being it hasn't been mentioned, but that's not a good way....

They have reported that only SB heatsink/fan being noisy is for Ex11 but then, that one is trying to cool 4 chips underneath. Other Extreme series dont have that problem as far as I know.
I would say, go for it, you won't be disappointed. All the latest technology and fantastic looks thumb.gif

Yeah the boards look great, I am building a rig with firepower that will matter & will be able to play games maxed out for yrs to come on a 1440P screen. I need X79 for that & I want the best bang for my buck. I won't update this Rig for @least 3 yrs after it's build, so I will go TRI-SLI & I need a good board to get the most out of my cards & there's no way I am paying $600 bucks for the 11! I would be sleeping on a couch somewhere & I dont mean @ home... biggrin.gif

If you have the money to get the E9, then I'd advise you get the Champion. I was in the same position you were in (although I was looking at some other motherboards too), and I went with the Champion because it's an all around better board. It has all of the features of the E9 (minus the 2x8pin power and 2xSATA), quadfire/sli capabilities, a crapload of usb3, and it looks better, imo. Plus, you won't have a slot taken up with the audio/lan card because it's integrated on the motherboard. I think that it's worth the extra $15 and then some. I'm very happy with it, and I think I made the best choice. Plus, this board is screaming to have IB-E put in it.

Just an FYI: if you don't like the Fatal1ty logo (the dude glaring at you), the latest BIOS update changes the POST screen to show just Fatal1ty (the word, not the person).

If I go Red/Black, I'm getting a RIVE... I'm looking @ the 9 cause it's a good board it fits most of all my color scheme. I'm not trying to bench or anything. I will run Dual, TRI-SLI 6 or 780's with this build to play future games maxed out. What I've read about the board has been mostly positive.

Ah, okay. Don't get me wrong, the E9 is a great board, and I'm sure you won't be dissatisfied with it if you ever buy it. I'm just not one of those people who care much for color schemes. Purple and brown match perfectly biggrin.gif

If you don't mind me asking, why the RIVE over the Champion? Afaik, the only real advantage it has over the Champion is the OC Key thing and integrated bluetooth. Both have the same nics, somewhat equal audio chip, pci layout, and the same heatsink layout (minus the fan). Just going by the specs, the Champion seems like the better board, but each to his own thumb.gif

Their UEFI is great , Dual bios, (Both from personal exp.) From what I've read is, Asus boards usually needs less Vcore than ASrock boards. It's more of a personal exp. I hold Asrock second to Asus & I've never used them, but I've had a MSI & Gigabyte boards also. Gigabyte boards are nice, but from the user readings I'm reading about Asrock & a friends exp. They've seem to have over taken them in quality & performance thus far. I've played with the ASRock UEFI & it's nice, but not as nice as Asus & that's the biggest selling point for me next to scheme. I've read that the Champion is on par & even better than the RIVE, but it doesn't have the two most inportant things I'm looking for & neither does the RIVE.
