Little info: Fried my second crosshair v formula z. I have always been disappointed in amd performance since I got back into overclocking. Wasn't pleased that as heavily overclocked as I was getting, it was no where close to intel's performance. So all this weekend I am trying to read up on what the best route would be for me, going intel with the following choices: 1. Gigabyte z87 with 4770k: $526
2. Gigabyte z77 up7 with 3770k: $670 with $100 rebate, $570 after rebate
3. Asus rampage 4 gene with 3820: $571

I think after loosing all this sleep, spending hours reading reviews, I am going to go with the option 1. What do you guys think?

I'd go with option 1. I had an awesome 3770k that clocked to 4.6 at 1.2V. My crappy 4770k matches its performance at 4.3 with slightly more voltage and heat. Thus the way I look at it is a crappy haswell will match a very good ivy. If you ended up with a crappy ivy then it would be loose loose. Also I gotta say that this new beta bios for the OC has been redeeming. It's much less buggy and has more chipset overclocking options. Release date was 9/4 and I can't remember the version because I'm at work. I got it from clicking on someone's sig link for beta bios lol.

Its sad to see such a great mb to be paired with such a crappy cpu. HS overclocks really break my heart, although they perform the same as a +300mhz Ivy. The bios you mean is the X04 beta that you got from here I recieved my z87x-oc yesterday and i m going to flash it and test it today. Hope for a decent 4770k biggrin.gif

Only boards with a PLX chip will give you 16X/16X. the OC is a 8X/8X board with SLI+Crossfire.

If you wanted 16X/16X etc then you wanted to be buying a Sniper5 or OC force.

I'm due to buy this board in the first week of next month. Was only willing to take it for the PCI-E slot placing, and the fact that the price difference between ASUS Z87-A and Z87X-OC aint that much.

I want to know if 8x/8x SLI will actually work in the 1st and 3rd pci-e 16x slot. The specifications seem VERY vague, and it seems to me that 1st & 3rd slot give 16x/4x, and 1st and 2nd slot are designed for 8x/8x configuration. Hopefully someone can clear this up for me with an image of the SLI setup plus gpu-z screens of it running at 8x/8x (pretty please smile.gif )

Gonna finally retire my 955 and switch to 4670k. Blue team here I come.

1st is hard wired for full PCI-E 3.0 16x with 1 card. The 3rd PCI-E 3.0 slot iis wired for 8X. So the only options your have for 8x by 8x with two slots are with the 1st and 3rd slot. As long as the software works for SLI/Crossfire it will happen between the 1st and 3rd PCI-E 3.0 slot. (The orange ones).

As long as the software works for SLI/Crossfire it will happen between the 1st and 3rd PCI-E 3.0 slot. (The orange ones).

 

 

If you are asking about how to set up x8x8 SLI on the OC it is not slots 1 & 3. Here is a quote form the manual page 19 "(To set up a 2-Way configuration, please install the graphics cards in the PCIEX16 and PCIEX8 slots". That is slot 1 & 5 or PCIEx16 & PCIEx8 see illustration below which actually makes it quit clear with out the manual because slot 3 is PCIEx4 indicating it's a x4 slot clearly. A copy of the manual can be download from the Gigabyte site ahead of buying the board to answer your question.

 

 

 

I can verify this is proper as my SLI set up runs x8x8 in these slots

Furthermore you can run a 3way setup using the PCIEX4_1 but all 3 cards will run at x4 and it must be enabled in bios 1st as it is not on by default.

 

In any case I hope this helps.

I think when saying Slots 1 and 3, people are only referring to the full size slots, in which case that would be the correct slots.

There are 4 full size PCIe slots on the OC. 

3 are 3.0 slots PCIEx16, PCIEx4_1 & PCIEx8

the forth is PCIEX4_2 and it's a 2.0 slot

to say 1 & 3 of 7 slots is misleading at best especially for a novice.

It was my hope to clarify

now it's confused again

sorry to bother
