It's not worth the extra money for me. It's over $100 more than the 2 I'm interested in and I don't want or need Thunderbolt

I would appreciate your input ASRock OC Formula vs ASUS Maximus V Formula

Invanlabrie is probably right about his info, but I have found consistent quality in my Asus products, especially MBs, so I lean towards them first. Not that other manufacters don't have good boards too....

I was looking at the Formula too, but after reading some of the user reviews I decided to spend the extra and get the extreme. I'm not sorry I did either. But, I also have an Asrock Extreme 4 P67 board. It has been a good board and I'm still using it. It has been extremely stable. The only thing is I can't overclock as well with it as I can with the Asus board using the same CPU. It overclocks fairly well but if you are looking for a high overclock, like I know you are, I would go with Asus. The extreme is a great board and there is nothing you can't do with it, except change the batch number on your CPU.smile.gif

You don't really need that kind of high end board unless you plan on going for an extreme overclock, hence the suggestion.
If you want a good quality board with good customer support the Gigabyte ud5h or up5 series are of incredible value. OC Formula is the best bang/buck for extreme overclocks.

I'll never buy Gigabyte again. I had a nightmare of a time back when I had a 990 FXA UD7. The first revision of those Gigabyte 990 FXA boards lacked LLC control and vdroop was killing me. Their "support" was terrible

What turned you off the ASRock board?

Current z77 boards by Gigabyte are nothing like that wink.gif
Give the up5 or up7 a look...totally worth it. thumb.gif

I'm sure more will come once they get to the point where they want to improve their IB over heating problem. smile.gif



Seems like I have been able to lover my vcore a just a little more for stability testing with Prim95. Here is over 7 hour pass of Prime95 doing the large FFT hottest Prime95 test.




My rig is water cooled with a HD7950 in the same loop with a very slim HWLab Black ICE stealth 120mm radiator.


LOOP FLOW

Pump to radiator to HD7950 to i5-3570k to reservoir back to pump.

This is a temporary loop set up till I get a better radiator and reconfigure loop for better performance. I think my my temps will come down with loop performance adjustments which I have planned in the near future.

They will by quite a bit dependent on the size of rad you are getting also try switch the cpu in front of the gpu. thats the normal flow of things the gpu can take some serious heat and they dissipate it even more because of backplates now a days.

Tw33k, in between the Asrock P67 and the Extreme, I bought an Asus z68. Using the same 2500K and 2600K I realized that the Asrock board needed a lot more vcore to run the same speeds. The Asrock had a few quirks too. It may have been just my board, but to use their utility in the OS to adjust voltages, I had to use the software overclock to start. If I used manual, which I always do, the Windows utility did not work. I usually use the windows utility to make voltage adjustments to save me from a dozen trips to bios. But, the biggest issue was the higher voltages required by the Asrock board. My 2500K would never go over 4.6 on the asrock board. The first night I put it into the Asus board I hit 4.87. But, I have to say the Asrock board is the most stable board I had ever owned. I'm not including the extreme in that as I haven't owned it long enough. But so far, stable as a rock. And a lot of extra goodies too.

i thought back plates were designed to help keep the PCB straight and not for thermal heat transfer???


I don't have a back plate on my card.

If you know of a good back plate for reference HD7970 PCB that is proven with tests to show increase in thermal heat transfer please share. smile.gif
