I was wondering how a full cover waterblock was going to reach the components to the left (between LGA2011 and I/O stacks).

 

I took a look at the board and noticed, it's not cooling anything. It is just aiding in cooling of other components via the heatpipe...

Then I started looking at the other heatsinks. The one north of the LGA2011 doesn't even cover all the components:

And the heatsink to the south of the LGA2011 barely is cooling any components (not saying the ones they are cooling aren't vital)

I kinda want to pop off the active heatsink and see what's going on under there...

I got my stuff the day they came out. the new cpu overclocks like a dream. the motherboard in my opinion is the best one currently out. This however is my first ASUS board.

I run at 5000mhz and hover around 44-45C full load.

Although it doesn't mean much I cannot get my Windows Index Score > 7.8. My CPU scores 7.8 the same as my 990x ***?

Initial benchmarks.

3DMark 2011
PCMARK 7

Incase anyone wanted to see an atto benchmark.

Just got my Rampage IV. smile.gif

Long (and fun) week-end ahead. I have like 6L of waters in my loop, 30 feet of tubing, and 7 radiators. Ahhh. The fun of draining and refilling that loop. smile.gif

On the internet, for 10 REALLY VOCAL whiners, you have 1000 satisifed customers that don't post.

Overkill if you take off the heatsinks you'll notice that some of them dont even have thermal pads on them!

and the X79chip has some kind of foil on it, which is a first for me.

Now what would be the best memory to go with in regards to Corsair Dominators?

2sets of 16GB Dominator 1600MHz?
http://www.corsair.com/dominator-with-dhx-pro-connector-1-5v-16gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cmp16gx3m4x1866c9.html

or a single set of 32GB Dominator 1600MHz?

Or something entirely different but with a higher MHz?

Oh, so that explains the trouble I had then. I ordered the regular version of this on Tuesday but did not receive any invoice or notification of a fulfilled order. I e-mailed them this morning asking about it and was told that my order "did not go through and the order does not exist in our order data base". They cancelled my order as there was a temporary authorization pending on my credit card account for a purchase in the amount of $458.46. I was told that should go away within 24-48 hours. I immediately went over to NewEgg and ordered the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme X79 BF3 Edition for a total of $479.47 shipped with 4% cash back (3% FatWallet & 1% Chase Freedom). I will also be getting $300 cash back from my sign-up bonus which was fulfilled after spending $500 on my new Chase Freedom credit card.

Total cost of this build was a bit over $1,700 after using the parts I already owned from my current build. Check out my Sandy Bridge-E (X79) system on the Rigbuilder here. Should be receiving the motherboard by Wednesday if NewEgg doesn't delay in shipping my order. Just in time for the holiday weekend. thumb.gif

I wouldn't even use Corsair. I think a lot of people are using G.Skill Ripjaw Z or whatever it is.

I have an extra 32GB kit if interested.
