Don't know if this has been tried before and I don't know the composition of the glue used to attach the lid but has anyone tried using fishing line like a saw and a hairdryer or a heat gun to soften the glue and try cutting through like that? No chance of damage that way unless you use a heat gun and heat it up too much.

Now if they used an epoxy, then this might not work.

Ok so I'm going to be placing my order tomorrow. I have a 500 dollar credit limit and I am torn between the ASUS Maximus V Formula ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131934 ) or the GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP7 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128569 ). If I buy the ASUS I will also buy the Phantom 630 with it, but if I buy the GIGABYTE I will have to wait to buy a case, but that won't really matter since I am sending my PSU out for an RMA so I'm not going to be able to use the computer for a couple weeks anyways. If I buy the GIGABYTE I will probably just end up buying the Phantom 820 case.

What to do? Can you guys give me some input on this?

...there is a fair amount of posts yesterday on ROG Maximus, Gigabyte UP7 etc, might be worth it to read through them, incl FtW 420's table he posted

Interesting stuff...and yeah, scary too :/

Givent the UP7's price, I personally wouldnt get it unless I knew I was going to drop $1200 on a golden IB chip, and put it under an LN2 pot. ( or go Quad SLI )

Maybe one of these:

ASRock OC Formula ( This is my board, the only way I could be happier is if you bought me a UP7 )

Gigabyte z77x-UP5 ( Was the board I planned on but got a better deal on the OC Formula )

MSI z77 mPower ( supposedly hand tested to 4.6ghz )

The MVF is still a great board. From my reading through other peoples experience, it seems to excel extremely well in memory overclocking capabilities.

Beyond that, 95% of what you are going to get out of your chip, is going to be because of your chip specifically.

But I must say, the OC Formula has held the Ivy bridge clock speed record, and has a great bios.

Have you tested the OC Formula with a DMM to see how much the voltage is off? With the Extreme4 that I'm selling the voltage was off up to .1v depending on what LLC I was using. The lowest it was off was .03v

The OC Formula is on another whole new level...can't compare it to cheaper Asrock boards. Think of it as a cheaper MVE. thumb.gif

Hmmm maybe I'll get that then. It's only $205 at newegg right now. As long as the voltage won't be off more than .02 I'll be happy. Then I can buy the Phantom 820 with it! Nice! Now to decide if I want the case in white or black thumb.gif Any opinions on that?
