true, but i don't want to waste my current 3x2gb sticks though. i think i'll just get another 3x2gb of the same model, if anything i'll probably be building an ivy bridge in the future.

As far as spec on it, I more look at it similar to overclocking. Intel doesn't tell us that our CPU's will do 4Ghz but most are capable of it. Just comes down to fine tuning the individual hardware, Some can, some can't. How much punishment the memory controller can take will come down to the individual hardware as well. I've ran 6 X 2GB @ 1600Mhz. It worked no hiccups. (other than getting in the way of a CPU fan).

I'd just rather have 3 X 4GB if it were me. My understanding is that the DIMM's are usually of much higher quality. + less stress on the memory controller for the same performance. + leaves the door open for further upgrading.
FWIW, I recently upgraded my 3x2GB dominator kit to a 3x4GB vengeance kit and couldn't be happier. Didn't even need to adjust the QPI voltage. Lost a little bit in the timings (7-7-7 vs. 8-8-8) but I don't notice the difference.

I have had experience running 6x2 and it definitely hindered my overclocking performance...required significantly more QPI voltage especially as I approached 200Bclk and 4ghz. But that was on a C0 processor a couple of years ago.

Hey everyone

I have one of these sitting in my room, with 2 Mofset blocks an a fullcover block, so fully watercooled.

I originally planned to sell it, but it's taking longer than I'd like, and was considering using it. I'd have to drain my loop, which would be a pain due to my setup, but it's doable.

My current board (UD3R) doesn't want to boot with any sort of overclock it seems, but I don't really want to overclock, although I'd like the ability to have a go!

What advantages would I see using this board over my UD3R? Apart from the fact it'd be fully water-cooled?

P6X58D-E w/i7-930, 5970 (+5870) never had any issues.

Except once with a BIOS "update" that made the system overheat in BIOS and in BIOS only... most annoying.

I've been reading some issues about the first boot in newegg reviews. I assume those are user error, but wondering if I should have any issues with the setup in my sig rig? Minus motherboard, of course.

You didn't happen to pick that board up from luke997 did ya?

Its a solid board. I can't say it is that much better than your gigabyte but it is a proven overclocking board, and if you are wanting to learn and already have a loop setup, then go for it. Keep in mind that you will see a drop in flow because of all the blocks, but if you can minimize use of angled fittings it shouldn't be too bad. Two loops might be prudent if you are WC'ing the graphics too.

I've been running my premium with the OC in my sig for about 15 months now. For the past 6 months it has been doing nothing but encoding video 24/7. Speaks for itself I think.

Since I bought it open box, I'm wondering where I can get a new q-connector if it doesn't have one? I found the I/O shield on the Asus website already (just in case), but unable to find that connector.
