Good 8 dimm board for the i7 3930K?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there guys,

Got me an i7 3930K and with it (Rushing) I got an MSI board: X79a G45. and I'm not very impressed with it. I'm a bit annoyed by this choice, and seeing that it has some defects I'm going to RMA it ( I will open a thread for the board itself seeking help until I find good replacement)

Would you guys please advice, which would be a stable choice for me to get? I'm only interested in OCing it to ~ 4.5 Ghz, I use Corsair H100 (fan controller is a piece of crap imo) and 8DIMMS HyperX DDR3 1600 / 32Gb.

What can you guys recommend that can take this cpu to 4.5 fairly easy and doesn't shut down or does weird stuff randomly?

Thanks,

It's very expensive, but the RIVE is a very nice board for overclocking. I have no doubt the Sabertooth and P9X79 Pro could do the trick as well, for a lower price.

Very solid board if you are on a budget.
