Choosing a new x79 board. Sabertooth or Rampage 4 Formula.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Choosing between the two boards in the title. The rampage is a bit more expensive and as long as component quality is rather similar i'd rather go with the sabertooth to save the $$. If anyone has had experience with either board explain (overclocks, ram, issues, etc...). Do they both have similar bios options (fine tuning). Also still weary of ASUS after seeing a lot of rma issues in the past few weeks on ocn and other sites. I'm trying to get a modest oc on my 3820 ~ 4.5-4.7 with ram @ 2133 (quad, my imc handles it with the current board). Suggest and comment away, thanks in advance.

The Sabertooth boards are over-rated IMO but both will handle a nice OC. The x79 RIVF for a bit extra gets my vote if your happy with just 4 DIMM's but on the other hand has a better PCIe config plus it will also handle your RAM with ease.

Ended up going with the formula. Don't really need the extra dimms slots, had post code display, power buttons on the board which surprisingly the sabertooth lacked, and aesthetically much nicer rolleyes.gif. Here's to hoping I can really get something out of my 3820 when it gets here.
