Duel cpu plugs = Worthless Trust me my RE III had them.. your Cpu does not draw half the power of 1 plug with 1.8v.. lachen.gif

It is like an Ash tray in a car for a guy who does not smoke lol.

The G1 Sniper 3 pretty much samething As MVG/MVF with more gamer options.. and less money.
But the UP7 has moved ahead of the Pack to be crowned King...

This might come in handy...If someone wishes to go Gb. Give it a look!

I think Gigabyte is a bit behind in ram performance that's all. Their VRM is from another planet, easily wiping the floor with anything else (talking UP7 here).

You turned into an x79 fanboi now? tongue.gif lol jk

EDIT: Just in case...I know that's an x58 board eh. wink.gif (and 5ghz 930...NICE!)

Ram performance is so close to call a real winner.

Options And Vrams go to Gigabyte.. Why they sell the most Mbs in the world and Asus is #2 wink.gif

But other then the KIng the UP7....

The MVE MVF G1 Sniper 3 are all so close... just get which ever is cheaper has the options and color combo you want..

Can not really say one stands out from the others they all have there perks.


Can you tell im a Friend of Sin0822 Since 2010? lol

We have like 5000 PM's between us since 2010 lol... talk daily heh

He seems like a nice down to earth guy, like you lol wink.gif
I can't imagine talking out of your behind like some other folk around here, who like to brag and defend their purchases xD

Anyway, yeah, I agree with the color scheme part...I'm having some trouble figuring what to do with my cm690 II advanced once I get the board.

if you can do 1 or 2 pentium, celeron etc first, working or not, doesnt matter,
you learn alot more from that, then any post or vid will..
i can buy them here for a few bucks, even asking in a populair computersite
over here, for broken ones ..lol
edit,
im master in miss reading posts, sorry..
but what i said is ok i guess ..lol
Exactly! First time i had no clue on the glue density, how easy it was to slip in etc... The second delid i was easily able to avoid the glue coming off and slipping the knife in.

So anyone have any ideas on this last question I asked? Different than the first as it's not about a reinstall of the OS onto the same system, but a replacement of hardware - the motherboard!
>>> So, when I replace only the motherboard in a system, and first unload all the drivers, and then boot up the new MB and load its drivers and all the other device drivers fresh, will I need to reload the W7 OS???
I'd like to think that all that needs to be changed with a new MB is the drivers and not the OS, yet my last attempt at this left the OS acting odd and off some, yet mainly functional....
Any help on this guys?

I'll be honest with you as I did that a few dozen times (and still I don't recommend it) - I do that when I get lazy and don't want to spend nearly 2 days on re-installing the OS, installing all apps, updating all the crap and everything and customizing all to my flavor ... it *should* work this way (uninstall all drivers before the MB swap, then install new ones) ... but there is ALWAYS 1 or 2 small tiny glitches that will stay there forever and you will not ever be able to fix them without a re-installation. why? because Windows creates a Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) at the time of installation, and as much it can alter it, it can't re-write it entirely. Problem is that components between motherboards differ even between same chipsets, and some components on new MB will not fit into hardware "strings" the OS assigned for them. That being said, things failing most often are Marvel devices and USB 3.0 controllers (especially the 3rd party ones), sometimes even intel native drivers will cause you grief after such swap, been there done that. most of things you will fix eventually, but I assure you there will be that little something that you won't be able to fix and it will drive you nuts over time ha ha!

TL;DR - it *should* work and keep you going until you find time to make a clean re-install with a partition re-format wink.gif

Yep. Excellent answer feniks and just what I thought and was afraid was true! Bummer really, as it "should" work, but never completely does and there is always that something not right bugging me. You explained it well. Thanks!

So, I'll have to put in a couple days of reloading everything! And then re-modding all my games, so more than a couple of days really.... Not much fun when I really just want to play games and music and bench with my system while at the same time as having fun upgrading and adjusting it!

Maybe with it being another Asus board it won't be soooo bad that I have to do it too soon! Bench with it some before deciding if I keep the board anyway. smile.gif

why so harsh smile.gif
Maximus V platform is a sweet board series, pretty much flawless and seems to have a very low DOA % (can't say that about my former favorite manufacturer)
really, good and even holding the highest world record on 3770K nowadays biggrin.gif
http://rog.asus.com/164362012/overclocking/7184-3mhz-rog-breaks-i7-3770k-frequency-world-record-more/

Maximus V Gene is especially one of the best bangs for the buck if one doesn't need more than 2 PCIe slots and needs a beautiful board with solid components, for LN2 is perfect... and relatively inexpensive if things go wrong and board doesn't survive the session wink.gif ... not that I play with LN2 no, I don't, just saying.
I know folks who went with V Formula or V Maximus (as myself) and none of them can say a bad word about it, really ...

Rampage III Extreme was a very decent platform according to felow members (never owned it) and perhaps they were kings of the past, but evga x58 board was also very good (missing some BIOS functionality though as EVGA always did and nowadays they suck terribly in that field) and back in the day the highest world records were nicely done by kingpin on evga board wink.gif.

I agree that Sniper G1 and MVE are very similar quality and pretty much same good, so yeah just take whatever fits the color theme of your build and fits the wallet, goes on promo, etc.

there is 1x 8-pin + 1x 4-pin, not dual 8-pin (that I had on Z77 FTW and it was useless for me LOL!) ... anyways, Ivy Bridge will never call for more power than can go through a single 8-pin socket, so don't bother with that biggrin.gif

yup, take that shortcut you mentioned just to get you going without much downtime, but please reserve a weekend for the total and clean re-install, you will appreciate it afterwards ... then take a backup of fully loaded and updated (uncorrupted!) Windows and keep it safe for restoration in future wink.gif

PM'd that to Valgaur just now as he asked me some questions, but will post it here too below as I think it's useful for extreme overclockers who tend to eff up the system because of unstable overclocks (especially memory overclocking does that quickly if unstable):
f you have at least one WD harddrive in your system (external or internal) then get yourself a copy of Acronis True Image WD Edition, install it on fresh fully updated and loaded (with your programs of choice) system and back it up to some other non-OS hard drive. then once you f**k up your windows because of unstable overclocks, just boot to Acronis CD/USB tool and restore that windows image from backup in under 10 minutes wink.gif
