a direct specs comparison didnt impress me much except for the pcie card combo upgrade and the thermo fusion. literally its just a bigger board with an added WC support capability rolleyes.gif

im going to be purchasing the 3570K, naturally, and the Gene or Formula. i dont know too much about the Formula since it just came out for sale. in fact, i know NOTHING about it! does anyone have a link to a benchmark?

crashdogy is correct.
that being said, if you dont like this behavior, you can disable it in the BIOS (disable EIST, C1E enhanced halt, C3/C6 state, CPU thermal monitor) and/or in windows power options (in advanced power settings, under Processor Power Management, change Minimum Processor State to 100%). Sometimes disabling it in BIOS is good enough but on some boards you may need to disable it in windows as well. Many overclockers find this behavior to be annoying (myself included) and then disable it. thumb.gif

P.S. Dos it mess with overclocking or is it better ?

its kinda more stable as the clock speeds dont go back n forth. but it does come at a price your cpu may just crash from running 100% all the time<<< kinda a low chance if your for sure its a stable overclock

Here's a picture of my Maximus V Gene inside my new 650D from Corsair. I think the wiring turned out pretty good.

I tried 4.5ghz @ 1.35v. I get blue screens... I think I'll have to add a few fans in.

Edit: I lowered it to 4.4ghz @ 1.27v It's running about 75-85 on prime for an hour, only running stock fans. I think I should switch my top fan to pull.

Edit 2: I got blue screen... Going back to 4.4ghz @ 1.30 until I upgrade my case.

Anyone here doing SLI on the M5G? Which cards did you use? The pcie slots are pretty close together. I'm considering an Nvidia 670 SLI setup, but I want to make sure I get two cards that will fit. Ideas?

I was able to hit 4.8Ghz on my 3770k. The only adjustments I made was in the TurboV EVO software by Asus. I changed my cpu ratio to 48 and adjusted the CPU voltage to 1.365. After running OCCT and Intel Extreme tuning utility I got it to pass and it's been stable for days. I had hope to hit 5Ghz, however I'm ok with 4.8Ghz at this point.


Also to note, my Corsair H100 doesn't have push/pull. I only have two fans that came with it. I might order two more. Temps with cores at 100% are 80c . I also have a CM storm trooper case as well, I just had everything out to test it before I installed.
