400 pounds for x79 motherboard or upgrade cpu and mobo?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi, so what happened was while overclocking i did a lot of silly things and basically fried my motherboard so i need a new one. However as they dont manufacture x79 mobos anymore buying one is quite expensive and in particular i found im only interested in the Rampage IV black edition wich i can find for around 400 pounds. But for 400 pounds, shouldnt i just upgrade my cpu and mobo. Money isnt really an issue as i have 1.5 grand spare.
Any help would be great biggrin.gif

Its not a BE, but its a RIVE and its not 400GBP

As an aside, why an Asus RIVE when you could go with Saberkitty , Asus X79 Pro , Asus X99-A

Do you know if that motherboard supports raid 10 with 4 drives @ 6GB/s. Because i looked at the specs and it said that 2 of the ports are on a different controller
EDIT: Was also looking at that x99A mobo. Does that support X79 cpu?

You can run Raid 10 with SATA 3Gb ports and not 6Gb.

I would just upgrade the cpu and mobo, paying 400 for old junk is not reasonable in my book

Will that affect my performance using 6GB/s drives?

I thought the same thing however i found a few cheaper but they still range from 200-300, is that still worth it

You already have an SSD. I'm assuming you use HDD to keep your less used data. If so, I can't think of a possible way in which 3 vs 6 Gb would make a difference.

Thanks for the help huzzug ive decided on the RIVE as it has 2 usb 3.0 Headers and has that power connecter for the pcie lanes on the mobo which i think will help me OC my 3 cards in sli. But is 300 pounds still worth it rather than upgrading my cpu and mobo?
