Top 3 X79 Motherboards? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
sir i was comparing how people think its the greatest. obviously i know a motherboard and cell phone are 2 seperate entities. but tbh you should have been able to figure out what i meant.

deafboy, i didnt necessarily mean the big bang is better, i meant to say i like it it better. it seemed more overclock friendly to me. but thats argueable i know. i just like it better and wanted somebody to list it as top 3 since it is certainly equal to rive in every way. i dont hate rive but actually like it, i just hate how people think its the best.

Well, you should have figured out before you posted such nonsense that that was way too far a stretch to make such a mediocre point.

Last time I checked I can replace the battery on the RIVE and the memory is not soldered to the mobo. Not to mention there is no corporate numbskull telling me I'm holding it wrong.

Didn't get that vibe at all...just comparing status of one thing compared to the other not the actual devices.

Gotcha, I haven't used the big bang but that certainly seems interesting as the RIVE is kind of THE board for extreme overclocking.

Interesting though. Glad you like it smile.gif

1. ASUS Rampage IV Extreme

I can't speak for the rest of them, but this is the one that I'm running.
Overclocking is your choice of doing it yourself or in the bios. I've hit 4.9 using the presets in the bios.
Been a trouble free board for me, I'd recommend it. I'm also running Win8 64 bit with no issues on it.

Thanks for that. You said you hit 4.9 ? at what voltage is that and what temps do you get idle and load?
