The Godlike is hands down the best and most awesome motherboard I've ever owned. Amazing top drawer stuff!

Afaik most of *JXXX batches do 4.5Ghz below 1.25v. Mine has been at 4.4@1.2v from day one. Crossing fingers it stays at that. thumb.gif

Mine's a L516B358 Batch, so not a J at all, still going fine at 4.2Ghz@1.19v, but then again I'm not going overkill on the cache either, I'm only running that at 3.3Ghz, I didn't notice any day to day difference going higher, plus I only gained like 4 points on Cinebench.
I've had the system since the end of July, had it running at 4Ghz till a few days ago, so hopefully the "burn in time" has passed and the voltages stay like that.

i'm kind of limited to the msi gaming 7/mpower/krait or the asrock extreme 4, these are the only ones i can get. if aiming to a good motherboard then i think i'm better off with a z170.

Dude, the Mpower is a sick board, I would recommend it, I was actually so CLOSE to buying it before the Godlike.

It has everything you need, and more, I love that board to bits!

Honestly, if the more "expensive" boards are above your budget(they were for me because, it was either a "better" board or a 8TB HDD which I needed) you can go either of the 3 motherboards you mentioned.

From the reviews I read and opinions the Gaming 7 and Mpower are similar and perform similar in benchmarks afaik.

Personally I would choose the Mpower if its between those two. The new one(X99A). Nothing wrong with ASR E4 but imo I consider the MPower/G7 a better purchase.

Now for the Krait, well, that MB is identical with the MPower with some OCing futures removed(from a quick look) and dressed in white. thumb.gif

Hey all, first time posting here after lurking for quite a while! I guess I've just joined this club as of yesterday with my purchase of the X99S Krait Edition, paired with a newly purchased 5930k. Joined the club after my Asus x99 Deluxe killed both itself and my previous 5930k from what I can tell due to the rampant issues their OC socket has as I've been reading around. Anywho, I've been liking this board quite a bit and just had a couple clarification questions about it before I start really getting into things this evening:

1.) Just wanted to confirm, I have 2x Strix 980s and it appears that in my desired config; first in slot 1 and 2nd in slot 5, that this will have the cards running in 8x instead of 16x due to how the bottom slots works. I tested this by having the 2nd card in slot 5 at first and saw both cards were running in 8x, then I moved the 2nd card to slot 3 where it is right against card 1, and saw it ran in 16x. Because these are not blower-style coolers, the top card in this config was idling at 60 degrees F before any overclocking was done since the fans were as close as could be to the bottom card. I'm thinking it would be more worth having the 2nd card in slot 5 with plenty of airflow for both cards which would allow for higher overclocks on them, even if they run in 8x. Am I right in my thought process here?

2.) In regards to fan control, I guess the one way I was spoiled with the Asus board was how flexible that was. I have a Silverstone FT02 case with 3x 180mm fans on the bottom blowing up. These are 3-pin fans so I believe that means they require DC control. I've read a few on this thread complaining about DC fan control that is built in on these boards, but could someone give me a bit more insight as to how this should work with 3-pin fans? All fans are plugged into system fan headers and I enabled smart control for each of them in BIOS. What should I expect to see when I start stressing the system? Should it intelligently follow cpu temps?

Thanks in advance!

Hello there

You can use the first PCI slot + the last PCI slot for 16x/8x and thats very good space between the cards ( 4 slots )

for the fan control my x99 Gaming 7 control the 3pin fans without problem you just need to change the temperature related for the fans from system to cpu temp as the picture

So would you not recommend using smart mode for fan control? When I enabled it it seems like it created a fan curve that works pretty similarly to how your temp settings are in the screenshot. Are there any downsides to enabling smart control?
post #1420 of 3181
Just set a profile that makes you feel comfortable with temps and noise. I prefer to set a curve manually that means the fans run lowest when I'd normally use the system without headphones - watching TV/Youtube so light usage - and the fans can spin up a bit more when I'd be playing games and not notice the noise as I'd be wearing headphones.

Different fans have different noise levels so play with the settings that you prefer.
