post #1002 of 3633
Yeah, I think I will do that! I forgot to bring it with me today, so I guess I'll do it tomorrow!

I really want to install these upgrades, just need to clean up all of my files, etc, before I wipe the SSD clean. Sorting through many many gigs of files and programs is no fun! tongue.gif

Do any of you use Window 8 Pro? I picked up the upgrade at MicroCenter for $38.88, just not sure if I want to use it over Win 7 Home Premium?

I use Win 8 Pro, have been for about a month now, and haven't looked back (No more Aero!! Woohoo!!!!). If the whole metro-UI thing annoys you, there are a bunch of start menu type programs to bring the normal desktop experience back. I've tried a few of them, and most were lightweight, and worked well, did what they claimed, I liked "Start8", and "StartIsBack" of the ones I've tried, but that was around launch. There are many more of the same type of application now.

I'm thinking about getting this board over the sabretooth z77. What do you guys think? I'm also considering getting the lighting so the build would look sexy as hell.

Its up to ones self

I have used Asus last couple of builds z68 and z77 pro builds but went to this board now instead

Much better for me
Bios update utility for flash is much better, one small item.

IMHO, I have played with an Mpower and own a Sabertooth. If you want a good stable board with mature BIOS and few issues, then go with the Sabertooth. But the MPower is less expensive, has more features, and OC's a whole lot better. It is a newer board that has been steadly working through improvements in it's BIOS, but I think it will be the better board in the end if you are wanting to OC.

I sold sabertooth to get the mpower.. the mpower is way more stable at higher clocks. I'm glad I did..the sabertooth was good being one of the first z77 boards out. But the mpower really is a better board all around. I kinda miss aisuite though. The saber is way overpriced for the overall quality. But sports a 5 year warrenty.but I don't even keep my boards 6 months.before I buy a new one

Anyone in here running 3x Xfire on this mobo yet? I have 3x 5770's.. folding on it at the moment.. Im very surprised at the bandwidth results on these 3x slots..

 

PPD per GPU MSI Hawk 5770's @ 1.25v, 1000mhz core 1300mhz mem

 

GPU1 8x PCI-E : ~7256ppd

GPU2 4x PCI-E : ~7147ppd

GPU2 4x PCI-E : ~7147ppd

 

 For those of you that dont fold.. thats big! Multi GPU solutions sap bandwidth and can alter PPD numbers drastically. There being so little difference between the GPU's indicates that the 8x card is not fully saturating its bandwidth.. and that the 2x GPU's on 4x appear to be at 100% bandwidth utilization.. yet are not that far behind. 3x Xfire should kick hard!! Granted these are tiny 5770's.. if I had a 3rd 6950 I would test those too for similar phenom.
