Going to be getting the asrock Fatal1ty X99 Professional Gaming i7 to replace the asus x99a-II board... Anyone here try OCing memory on this board yet? I have read some reviews for this board and all are promising... Any feedback would be great, thanks

Most Asrock boards are solid overclocking boards, reliable and very oc friendly.
Many options available to play with. Have fun thumb.gif

Good question. Unfortunately, there is no much information about this board yet. Just a few reviews, with a mixed feeling about OC capabilities and no discussion anywhere else.

By the way, I was just skimming the AsRock club thread when I found you talking about the X99 Killer? Have you changed your mind about Fatal1ty Gaming i7?

I have the X99 Killer, been a great board... other then memory ocing. Looking to get the Professional i7 GAming board for hopefully better mem compatibility and and the dual m.2 slots... thats huge for me!

I would love to own this board for the same reason. Dual m.2 slots would be killer! Also board manual mentions that it supports SSD NVMe as boot disk. So I'm just waiting the SAMSUNG 960 PRO to become readily available before pushing the buy button for this board.

But being frankly I'm still a bit unsure about its OC capabilities. From the reviews it seems it does a decent job, not the best but good enough to play with. Being a new board (and from a atractive price point), I can only hope it becomes a best seller and starts to receive a good care from BIOS developers.

THe board will OC just like the best of them, im not worrying at all about that. Asrock and memory ocing for me have always been iffy..... I do very much enjoy Asrock boards as I think they are excellent, so I did go ahead and order this board and pre-ordered a 960Evo 256gb... Im just crossing fingers that my G.Skill 32gb CL14 3200mhz ram will like this board as much as they liked the asus X99A-II..

You are a luck guy! You already have a good memory kit in your hands. You just need to get this board from a reputable seller, with a good return policy and if something goes wrong you can return it and get something else or even your cash back.

From my side, things are much more complicated. Although I'm going to buy everything that I need from some US retailer, I do not live in the US. So, if something goes wrong I'm going to have a really bad time trying to return things, probably spending twice in import duty and taxes to get everything resolved. That put me in a very sensible situation: I really would like to get some decent DDR 3200 like yours. And I need 32GB (4 x 8GB). But to maximize luck I can only afford to chose memories listed in the board QVL which left me with only these options:

- Pay a premium price and get a Kingston HyperX DDR4 3000 4x8GB 15-17-17. Not really an option for me because I already went over my spending limits.
- Pay a more affordable price and get some Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2800 4x8GB (16-18-18) or G.Skill Ripjaws DDR4 2800 4x8GB (16-16-16).

And pray!
