I can save my oc's so it's not a problem for me, but I still think it should have a button.
lol... i can on my current comp as well, but on a lot of older boards they dont have that option

Yours is a solid clockers though, should work good for this project
As for the low oc part, 7ghz on ln2 is low for ya?
I could run 4.7ghz easily on air without delidding my chip and it wasn't exactly a brilliant 3770k.
Have you got any extra parts already?
tbh, i like the features of the RIVE the best out of all the x79s, but its layout is somewhat lacking... i picked the XPower beacuse it had by far the best layout out of all the boards that met the specs i needed... i also have to admit that this is kind of a showy build to attract some people on the edge, so i am rather concerned with the looks of it (much more so then i normaly would be with a build for myself)... its also why i will be trying a few new things (like tubless and a couple others) that i havent done much before
as for the oc, i was rather dispointed... i hit 8GHz, on theHS that came with the proc, but wasnt able to hit the 10 i wanted
... the reason im only aiming for 4 atm is because the 3930k pumps out quite a bit of heat and i am only running an H80i atm

its sad to think that i wont be able to pump out this RAMs full potential on air, but i plan of WCing it all anyways so i hope that helps
... also, TBH i only got this ram cause it was the same price as the 1600MHz kit
... well atleast it should allow me some decently higher clocks
so i just reset the CMOS and everything is all good now... i didnt end up corrupting the bios, but i did manage to corrupt the boot disk, and dumb me i hadnt made a back up image yet, so that is what im doing currently
