post #2921 of 33576
I used to use Norton ghost back then...never bothered with that again since building my new rig. But it's definitely the best way to go about it.

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, that is smile.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

The UP7 is on a whole nother Level then the g1 Sniper 3 MVF MVE Maximus is not Asus Cream of the crop the Rampage is wink.gif

And just a quick and dirty LN2 run takes the top spot... http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2540994

Hey guys, should I return my OC back to 4.8 or stay with 4.5? I was just wondering since I'm extremely board right now.

Buy a new chip and motherboard! LOL

My new 3570K is not a winner so far. Around 1.264v for 4.5GHz IBT run.

And only able to get to 5GHz at 1.552v and no further at that vcore.

You will one day after you finish school! Until then, just bench and OC what you got! thumb.gif

Haha. tongue.gif Glad to have made it worse. Jk! I plan to get a lot of benching things like a torture rack and some really nice OCN pot. tongue.gif That'll make my day so much. Until then, I just OCed my CPU to 4.8.
