Get 2600K if you don't plan to change your mobo in future, if you plan get 3770K. Getting 3770K with MIVE is useless, no PCI-E3.0 no USB 3.0 native etc,.

I was thinking about that but which would end up being a cheaper solution, upgrading the CPU or the motherboard in the future? Also the faster single threaded performance over the 2600K may come in handy. The 2600K is cheaper which leaves more budget wiggle room. confused.gif

So it comes down to performance over price or price over performance. I am upgrading from an AMD Phenom X6 @ 4.0Ghz so either the 2600K or the 3770K will be a huge upgrade.

Edit:
Then again I have the chance to get something new, so it's very tempting to go with the 3770K

Is anyone running a 3770K on a MIVE P67? If so, what kind of overclocks are you getting?
The reason I ask is because I have a 2600K that does 5.1stable and was hoping to upgrade to IB.....

Hi all.

I am new to this forum so i'm not sure where to start but i will try and keep this short and sweet.

I just purchased the Maximus IV Extreme Z68 board. I'm also considering getting ivy bridge 3770k at some point as the latest bios now supports it. The problem i'm having is deciding what ram to get. Does the ram have to match that of the Qualified Vendors List (QVL)? Also, does the size of the ram matter becuase the QVL list shows only 4gb for some of the ram listed whereas i want to go with 8gb. The ram i would like to get ranges from Kingston, Corsair, G.Skill @ either 1800mhz / 2000 / 2133. I've seen some on Amazon but i'm not sure if they'll work.

Here:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/KINGSTON-KHX2133C11D3T1K2-8GX-2133MHz-Unbuffered/dp/B007TTEHC2/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1342577005&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.co.uk/G-Skill-PC3-14900-1866MHz-9-10-9-28-Channel/dp/B004TGFWCW/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&coliid=I2W19KX0RW6YED&colid=ODKQZ3Y6QP18

http://www.amazon.co.uk/G-Skill-PC3-17000-2133MHz-RipjawsX-11-11-11-30/dp/B005BSDM74/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1342580583&sr=8-4

Any info would be great
Thanks for you time.

I had ram that was not on the qvl list and it worked on my old p67 MIVE smile.gif
post #1757 of 2087
Ah, i see. Ok thanks. smile.gif

I'll take heed to that if i'm not satisfied with the ram i just ordered. Those folks @ Asus should be more specific with the qvl i think. This is my second build that i'm doing. Decided to upgrade from the old 775 platform. QX9650, Asus P5Q Pro Turbo, KHX 1066 ddr2. Can't really gain much from overclocking on this but it has served it's purpose pretty well. Will have fun with the new build. Heard great rewiews on the mobo. btw is it worth going with ivy bridge as i keep hearing they get very hot?

In the EFI Advanced Mode bios go to the Extreme Tweaker tab and click on the radio button to the right of Memory Frequency a drop down should appear scroll down to 2133 and click on it. 2133 should now be displayed there. hit F10 then yes to save and exit and that's it you should now be running at 2133.

If 2133 does not appear in the drop down you can use XMP mode to run at the rated speed click the button next to AI overclock tuner and select XMP mode . As all use a program like CPUz to check that is is running in dual channel mode and if two sticks they are in the red slots.
