I'm looking at getting rid of my Extreme4 motherboard and getting a RIVE. I really want to be able to overclock a bit more and a bit cleaner, and I'm just curious as to what you guys think..

Is it worth the extra couple hundred I'm going to spend to get it. I plan on going full loop in the next few months, and would love to be abe to get close to 5.0

I also want the ability to add 16 more GB of samsung green!

...I recently added a 3970X in a R-IV-E to my existing machines (I'm in the software business) which also includes a ROG M-V-E Z77...I normally look at either Asus or Gigabyte for mobos - and I am very impressed and happy with the X79 R-IV-E...speeds at 5.2 GHz+ w/32GB of 2400MHz RAM are rock-steady with this board (depends on the CPU /RAM as well of course)...just make sure you read up on the R-IV-E before you get going on OC'ing...its BIOS can be a bit complicated (or alternatively offer huge amounts of adjustability) and it does like good VRM cooling...

...sales managers I know at NCIX told me that ROG boards like the X79 R-IV-E (and also the Z77 M-V-E as another example) do have a slightly higher return rate - not because they're 'broken' but some folks just find them too complicated (which again is also an advantage for some)...those folks are usually better of with the 'WS'/work station boards.

Really depends on your voltage required for OC, case airflow, LLC setting. All these variables contribute to the VRM heat. Feel it with your hand during your most demanding everyday application (rendering, etc) and if it's too hot to touch you need a fan. On mine up to about 1.45v VCORE is fine with no spotcool on VRM's. I use 4.5Ghz 1.32v every day so it's a non issue for me, same with most people with medium/medium-high OC's. It more so becomes a problem on the "bleeding edge" of the 3930k's limit.
