Money no object, take the RVE. Or the Gigabyte X99 Champion.

If we are talking along the lines of around 100MHz processor speed or RAM speed increase capability with the Rampage, I wouldn't spend the extra money, for example.



Ram OC sucks on X99 i would stay away from it, quite pointless, just focus it all on raw multiplier.

i manage to get my 5820k OC to 4.6ghz with 1.30v and 4.8ghz with 1.4v i could do with less voltage but just lazy OC, also did 4.4ghz cache oc with 2800 xmp ram, 3000 ram oc was tricky so dint spent time on it.
my other build i was able to do 4.4 ghz with 1.35v and 4.5ghz at 1.4v with 4.0ghz cache but only 2133 ram, both similar performance in terms of memory bandwidth gb/s.
i replace a R5 with sabertooth the R5 it far too granular this is truly to get the last bit of mhz as you can get and intended to go hand to hand with N2O OC.
R5 is not worth time and money i can do the same OC on Asus A-X99 as i can on a sabertooth and no one is the wiser ;D i just like the VRM active cooling of Sabertooth and overall design.

For general use, Sabertooth can equal what the RVE can give. Both CPU and RAM OC.

What you should consider are:

CPU OC is chip and Cooling dependent.

Memory Clocks is an attribute to 80% RAM kit quality, 20% CPU IMC quality.

System Tuning is 80% User skills and willingness, 20 motherboard feature.

Also add the knowledge that 3000 MHz RAM is a weaker RAM multi compared to 3200MHz and 2666MHz. And raw MHz does not tell the whole story in RAM OC. And XMP is not a sure fire way to set things up on X99.

That's what I am going with at this point. Ignore the GPUs, they're just place holders for power requirements.

So you think that RAM isn't worth the money and I should get 2666 RAM? That kit is actually the same price at the moment though. I would get faster RAM if I thought it usable. I'm not stuck on 3000.

I would like some settings to start my OC with and make it easier on me though. I haven't overclocked since my i7-920... Process was to overclock the CPU and find a multi that is stable for the RAM. Overclocking RAM didn't go very well.

Thx for the info man, but I'm wondering why no one recommened the MSI Godlike? Isn't it suppoed to be on par with Rampage 5?

Well if RAM Prices are the same. Get the highest rated spee you can get and look further down the details of their chips. There are sites from overclockers that delve into these.

There was a time when Hynix is the preferred memory chip for X99. Now Samsung is hitting the platform like storm.

But if you are unsure look for a 3200 MHz X99 certified kit. It uses 1000 BCLK for XMP and should be easier to tune. And is actually more binned for higher speeds. If things go wrong you can ask for help on this thread then.

I just noticed the PSU choice. Are you planning on dual GPU? If so pick no less than 1000W. 1300G2 should give you more headroom for OC.

Well resolved vcore jumps but trying to get stable 4.40GHz on OCCT (failure before half hour or freeze so)


last build (X99 SOC Force)





X99 Sabertooth
Corsair 3000MHz@ 32000MHz CAS15
I7-5820k 4.40GHz (not stable yet ><)

I can't say for sure about the God Like. But check out the Haskell E thread for info. Maybe someone there has an experience with the MSI.

Though, somewhere along the line, you should ask, will you be doing top clock overclocking or in to the last bits of performance?

Are you going to be a bencher on that rig?

One guy mentioned Asus doing the right stuff better than any other makers for the last generations of Extreme CPU. Easy choice then.

I will look into the 1000W power supply.

Should I even bother trying to get RAM up to 3200MHz when overclocking if things are that finicky? I don't need to overclock the RAM, I just want to make sure what speed I buy in RAM can be achieved. So if I can get 3200 easily then I'd do it, but I won't try to make a 3200 kit do more; if I can get more I'll buy faster RAM to make the overclocking easier. I'm hoping to get a good achievable speed from you experienced Sabertooth users. So 3200MHz is usable without much issue?

I have found that 4.3 O/C seems to be the sweet spot for performance over voltages . 1.2 V for 4.3 O/C , I can get 4.5 stable but voltage is too high at 1.375
