#3 - What monitor do you have currently? IPS or TN? That is the single thing that is holding me back is that it's TN, and much prefer color accuracy.

As soon as I have my rig put together you will be the first to know anything, I'm using 2 EVGA Gtx 780ti's, and the monitor I was previously using was the Asus PB278Q, and before that the VG24***something lol, I'm not going to lie I do miss the insane frame rates and legitimate 144hz, but I also really wanted higher resolution, the Asus rog swift is coming out soon, it's a 2560x1440 and 144hz or 120hz, stock without needing to overclock the monitor =) depending how this 4k goes If it's too slow for me I definately would like the Asus rog swift monitor =)

I have a single 290x, and get good playable stuff on 1440p, but the huge pixel increase for 4k is worrisome, I think I'd definitely need a 2nd 290x for x-fire to push playable frames. Part of me really wants to go there, but the high entry cost and no IPS is holding me back. There are a ton of 290x on eBay though for just over 300, but I'm not sure how much sense that makes seeing as how MS is working on DX12, and then these cards will be obsolete anyway (not to mention my wife may disown me :-p) (Also, I know DX12 is a long time from coming out, and even longer from implementing). I think I saw that DX12 should be out next year-ish, and then it's usually 1-2 years before anything really uses it.

hopefully i'll be fine, i think it'll be allllll good. honestly, i went from a HP IPS monitor aswell before the other moniors, i think a HP lbw25 or somesort. anyways, from saying that, i haven't really noticed a difference. what is the difference? i heard it has to do with seeing it from a angle? if that's the issue, im staring at my screen right now from as far off to the side as i can, and it all seems legit. besides, you'd probably be more busy trying to find a pixel than worry about side screen glare, if that's even what IPS is about, assuming the person who told me that isn't a complete fool misleading other complete fools like myself biggrin.gif

3. That there is Corsair Dominator Platinum. To be precise, those in particular are clocked at 2133mhz. That is a great way to blow cash on a name and look. They are some of the best RAM modules on the market, but they are absurdly overpriced in my opinion. No way I am spending $700 for 32GB of RAM. May work flawlessly, but so do my Ripjaws. They are running at 2134mhz 24/7 with no faults. CDPs just look cool and have LEDs on them.

OOHHH YEEESSS, $500 for RAM is SO much easier to swallow. I was actually off in my original comment stating full price was $700, it is actually a full "k" for an entire quad channel kit. I would much rather spend $500 on an full terabyte SSD that I will actually see performance gains with...

Got mine for 429 or somewhat at frys when they price matched with I think Newegg. Stupid plastic Sata power bent the plastic part behind the pins because the SSD above that one was too close -_- frys customer service, was all like "no problem, here's your even exchange" gotta love real customer service in oppose to ordering stuff

Asus maximus VI Formula vs Asus Maximus Extreme.

Originally i bought the formula + ekwb full board waterblocks. issue is south bridge waterblock is separate and its between the two video cards, so its a pain in the yoohoo, so i bought the asus maximus vi extreme + ekwb full board waterblock for that.

so now i have both, with both full board blocks. i can return one of the motherboards, but not the waterblocks. i'll take that as a loss for indecisiveness.

I'm using 2 cards in SLI, and a soundcard.

Formula looks better to me, and i've heard alot of good reviews about it, but the extreme is alot easier to have my loop incorporate the south bridge.

What do you guys think?

Formula w/ painful waterloop setup which will look super overkill with all the tubing? also restricted to 2x sli

OR

Extreme w/ ugly board, 4x sli option, OC Panel, and easy water loop config?

both are in my posession, i just dont know which one i should keep and which i shouldn't...





didnt put the block on the extreme yet, considering i'm still using the board out of case and don't feel like trying to passively cool a mobo's chipset with a waterblock on it. lol

I don't understand why it is necessary to have a waterblock on a bridge. Any bridge to be exact... Super high end enthusiasts with rigs worth >$7,000 don't even put waterblocks on bridges 99% of the time. That particular board doesn't need to be underwater for it to function, it cools fine without the loop. But it of course is there if you need it. Whatever floats your boat, I like my extreme personally...

PS - Please try and not to quad and triple post, it gets really obnoxious when it comes to getting subscription notifications sent to 50 people for each post. Not trying to be an ass, but please edit your post instead of making an entirely new one.

Same reason I didn't get ripjaws. For aesthetics. I like my things to perform good, and look good.

Of course nowadays bridge(s) don't need liquid cooling but neither does a aquaero fan controller. But that's what this forum is all about, doing stuff to things that don't need to be done, for sake of personal gain whether its form or function or both. And voiding a warranty here and there aswell =p
