Yeah that's actually what I currently have saved in my New Egg wishlist. 0.o It looks a helluva lot nicer (I'd have to change my color scheme plans but no biggie) and I like the increased max ram speeds it offers among other things. The Rampage doesn't use the mouse driven Bios does it? (should I even be fretting about that?)

My Sabertooth does 2100MHz memory all day long. You just have to set it in BIOS.

I use my keyboard in the UEFI BIOS anyways, its faster. Some will tell you that the Sabertooth is better than the Rampage. Additionally the Sabertooth has a 5 year warranty where the Rampages is only 3 years. If I were given the choice between the Sabertooth and the Rampage, I would choose the Sabertooth.

CONFLICTING THOUGHTS AHHHH!!! smile.gif

A couple other things I've been thinking about. What's the general consensus when it comes to fans? I know the 900D comes with 3 120's and 1 140 fan and I would like to upgrade the fans for obvious cooling reasons but also for aesthetics. Because I enjoy brand whoring I'd probably just upgrade with matching Corsair fans on both the case and with the radiator dumb idea or not? I would prefer a quieter setup so not exactly sure when ones to purchase. I would love to just put Noctua fans everywhere but god damn I can't get over those colors...

Also doing a push pull setup on the 110, worth it or not?

Rampage IV Extreme UEFI Guide for Overclocking


Best guide ever for the RIVE and RIVF, read everything, take an hour and read everything


Keep the Corsair 1050 for next Titan


For the cooler. Please get the Swiftech H220 It will outperforms all other close loop coolers.

And you can also add some custom radiators in it for even better cooling.






But the custom cooling project is for when?


You keep adding stuff to your post, almost missed it. smile.gif


Best reason to get the Rampage over a Sabertooth?

I will look into the Swiftech setup. Any opinion on doing a push-pull setup on it? Since I'm planning on putting this in a 900D I've apparently made it a goal to use up as much as space as possible... Btw, any reason why Newegg doesn't carry swiftech any more?

The custom water cooling project would be for a time when I'm not a ***** and/or get bored. Or one day go full retard and think water cooling 2 Titans would be a smart investment of my money...

Yes, add some fans all over the Swiftech H220. This Custom Cooler can also become a custom loop, You can add radiators or block in it. But not to much because the pump will not suffic.


Get the Rampage IV Formula, its about the same price has the Sabertooth and the Rampage will always be the board to get when it comes to extreme overclocking.

Also the Rampage BIOSes are continuously updated.

But there are many other reasons, especially 4 x PCIe Slots.

Depends how much you are whilling to pay.

But the Rampage Series are the boards to get with x79 (IMO)

Yeah looking into the H220 looks great. Will surely add that to my list.

Thanks for the tips and keep them coming!

Instead of mounting a drive I'm just going to pick up a usb drive for installing windows and whenever else I'd need it.

Also decided to switch to the Corsair AX1200 psu since its fully module and my plan is to buy the Corsair braided kit. Yay even more overkill.

None for nothing, but if he is currently running a 2600k. Why is everyone telling him to upgrade? His CPU is more than capable for all gaming scenarios. His issue is his 560Ti. Amongst the fact that he probably hasn't overclocked either.

Instead of him spending a ridiculous amount of money on this ridiculous new rig, why doesn't he post his current rig specs and we help him update it from there.

You don't need a 3930k for gaming... rolleyes.gif

This rig is a gigantic waste of money for someone who already owns a 2600k and is simply looking for better gaming performance.
