Only Intel Certified Manufacturers are Compatible? - Page 4

post #31 of 39
Thread Starter 
Everywhere I go on every forum and every search it seems everybody recommends against Intel boards, but I have seen no reasons given. Can anyone tell me why Intel boards have such a bad rep?

I made the mistake of buying an Intel core 2 quad a few years back which is now absolete if you want to run Rift on Ultra graphics settings with the best FPS.

Btw, the cost of the product aside, can anyone recommend a good gaming mobo? I'm looking at either an ASUS Rage III extreme or the EVGA classified.
Both the Calssified and R3 are awesome boards. Both have proven their guts in many test rigs I have seen on this site, as well as others. You really cant go wrong with eithier. I personally vote classified. Thats just me.

^^ Agreed

His computer, after its done will be able to feed his video cards for years to come. If he goes sli/crossfire with some major boards, his computer will have a better chance of standing up to the task. Maybe he wants to run 5080X1080. Who knows, but dont sit here and tell him not to buy something, when its obvious he has read his reviews, and narrowed down his choices. Now he wants details on his choices which is what this thread is about.

I believe it's because DIMMs utilize Dual In-Line Packages (DIPs) while SIMMs utilize Single In-Line Packages (SIPs).

Channels are a completely different thing. If you are running single-channel RAM, it means that only one memory module can access the IMC. Bandwidth effectively doubles from single channel to dual channel (because two memory modules have access to the IMC), and triples from single channel to triple channel (because now three memory modules have access to the IMC).

Any thoughts on a RAID set up for SSD's vs. an external 1 TB storage device?

Questions like this are why people are recommending you learn your stuff first and build a test system.

SSDs in RAID >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 1 TB external.

I dont understand why he need to build a "trainning wheels system" first. Why buy a POS system that hes going to have to replace then turn around and build another. Does an AMD chip go on the MB different then an Intel? do the ram sticks go in easier? Does he need a torque wrench for his video card for his build? I dont get it.

These are not excuses to build a second system. These are all reasons to build his own. If he didnt want to, then he should have bought a prebuilt. but he didnt. Hes buying the parts he wants, and is asking for help. Stop wasting time telling him to build a second system and answer the question he asked.

Yes raids are way better then an external drive. But youll want both.

Raid array for your OS. Two 64 or 32MB ssd's. Super fast and dedicated.

1tb external/internal drive for storage. The sizes of the drives can change, but thats what I recommend.

Pretty much any triple-channel kit that uses less than 1.65V will work fine.
