EVGA Classified E760 VS everything else????

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Ok, I had bad cold boot problems with my p6t and just took it back and got a full refund, so I am looking for another board... The highest OC I could boot to windows with the p6t was 4638mhz with HT on, and 4.4 stable on air.... I am wanting to go water and wanting the most overclock I can get, is the Classified E760 really that much better than everything else for overclocking to warrent the cost difference?


I was also looking at the Rampage II Extreme, but the Classified E760 is only like $40 more.....????? and everyone reccommends the Bloodrage, but you can't find the damn things anymore, so that option isn't there... I want the absolute best overclocking board no matter what it is...

I have read that the BLCK on the Classifieds went higher than any other board, is this correct?

If you want the best board, get the E760... theres a reason why 9 of the 10 highest i7 920 oc world records are done with a classy. And you are correct about the higher blck limit and no cold bug.

However, if you're not shy with mobo modding, a simple transistor swap on a Bloodrage or Bloodrage GTI allows you jack the pci speed well beyond 103mhz, and consequently reach record high bclks (even higher than classys will go). However, im not sure if the Foxconn boards have a cold bug.

A Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 is another good option, it supports USB3 and SATA3 which is another bonus and not to mention its cheaper than the Classified and Rampage II Extreme.

Like ambient in my house, i am not talking about extreme cooling, i am talking about a known stable overclocks just mysterious not booting anymore and then clearing the cmos, inputting everything back in it the same way and all the sudden it worked again. I could restart it all i wanted to after it started working, but when i would initially turn it on, it would say "overclock failed" and it was an overclock that was prime stable for 12hrs! It pissed me off so i took it back, not to mention that 218 BLCK was the highest that it wanted to go.

I was looking at that one as well, but not many people have them yet, so there are no good or bad reviews of it, and I don't want to be the first to figure out that the $300+ part that i just bought sucks!

So far the 6 reviews i've seen (And reviews on sites) are pretty good. Considering it myself as long as my PCI-E slots don't get cut down to x8 w/ USB 3.0 enabled like there P55A boards do -.-
