Gigabte x99 Ultra Gaming or Asus x99 Rog Strix mobo?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey folks. Just purchased a 6800k and I'm debating between both boards. Both are priced similarly and both have nice features. I would like to know which board would run the 6800k around 4.4Ghz with 4 sticks of 8GB G.Skill 3200 CAS 14. I'm also hoping to enable 1t instead of 2t. Thoughts?

One of the best mobos if you want to overclock.
If you don't like the small factor there's always the ATX one.

That's a sweet board but I'm sure it won't make much of a difference in OC between the Asus, GB or the OC Forumula. At this point in the game I'd rather have an x99 refresh mobo since they have some nice new features on them.

Though in general I have had more problems with Gigabyte than Asus.. recently every Asus product I have got has had some major failure within the first few months(dead sata bank, dead M.2 slot, dead ram channels...)
That combined with Gigabyte having MUCH better return process I put all votes towards the Gigabyte, another bonus is its cheaper.

Though personally I would go for Asrock/MSI/EVGA.. the Gigabyte will likely be the better of the two.

I'm leaning towards the Asus Strix only because it supports overclocking better in regards to BIOS setup. I heard GB's is bland in comparison.

I hear what your saying. Our new X99 boards have a new BIOS layout. Here's a review: http://proclockers.com/reviews/motherboards/gigabyte-x99-designare-ex-motherboard-review/page/0/3

I'll let people chime in and give you their opinion (mine is obviously biased) - just an FYI.

Sorry this may sound a little harsh, but the problem with GIGAbyte is their revisions, same model for example but different revision makes it confusing
