ASUS Maximus IV or Gigabyte UD7 with many exp slots? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
no i don't run them like that, that was just to show slot spacing from my review. You want to keep both int eh 16x slots for best performance.

Im trying to decide between the UD7 and Maximus IV for my new build. Also wondering if a full board block is out for either.

I need to put 2 WC 5870s, Auzentech Forte inside my 700D case, but so the Forte is far enough from the GPUs that it won't overheat.

Actually Asus Maximus IV Extreme holds highest BCLK on HWBot with 108.55MHz in overall P67 ranking CLICK HERE

And Asus Maximus IV Extreme holds highest 2600K OC @ 5677MHz..

In only Asus Maximus IV category it holds 109.32MHz BCLK CLICK HERE

I was also hesitating between those, UD7 and Maximus IV, but I choosed the Asus maximus. I'm with Asus since over 10 years, and never had a single bad MB or any RMA to do. I really think you can't go wrong with any of those 2 great boards.

LOL! I know it's a ''stupid'' reason, but since I'm watercooling, the black and red MB was looking better for my build (red RAM, black tubings, nickel/plexi waterblocks, etc). The Gigabyte colors where not matching well with what I want to do and use.

I should receive my Maximus IV today from Newegg.

I will transfer my Tri-Fire (watercooled) 5970+5870 in it for now, but planning to go 6990+ 6970 next month (if they could actually get the 6990 out!), watercooled. I already have the 6970 + EK waterblock in another computer at home.

For me, it's just a minor step until I get my Ivy set-up in a couple of months. But since we play LAN games at home, we have 4 gaming computers, and the SB will go to me daughter when I get my Ivy set-up. I have the same Asus P6T and i7 920 since the first day they came out sooo long ago! Rock-stable chip at 4.0 and 1.27v. And it's from the very first batch of i7 when them came out! Golden chip at the time...

OP. You can't go wrong with those 2. make your choice on what you need.

I don't agree with either board. Too pricey for a mainstream CPU.
I paid $330 for a R3E X58 back in May. The M4E is worth $250-280 Max.

Great marketing though.

CHEERS..
maximus is crap IMO, you dont get intel sata III controlers on the maximus IV so NO trim for you , with a sata 3 ssd ( like the crucial c300) .

The gigabyte board supports sata 3 with trim function working.

GIGABYTE > Maximus IV ..

btw doesnt the maximus board have a amd chipset and the gigabyte has a intel chipset ?

most of you seem to be missing the point...
