    I do think that it is indeed a hit to the other reviewers to get the jump and post ahead of the NDA lift. It might not be illegal, but ethically it certainly is questionable.

    That said, I know...

    Exactly.

    And I concur. Outdated chipset, outdated architecture, and crappy overclocking to boot.

    I'm disappointed that the IB-E overclocks so poorly. Some of the reviews tried to put a good...

    Raja,

    I was getting ready to flash to BIOS 4310 but I see on the ROG forums a good number of users with Turbo and C-state issues. Are these being resolved?

    If you are stable in offset with low voltage, why don't you simply leave it that way. Offset is preferred anyway with lower voltage and heat at idle.

    I will add that the very fact MS didn't bother to add their own integrated desktop shell rubs me. It smacks of a puproseful attempt to kill the dektop space.

    First off, I do really recommend the ripjaw Z series. Ripjaw X can throw sporadic issues on X79. Because the X are marginally stable on X79, I am not surprised that a little extra heat can be the...

    Set VCCSA to fixed not offset. Set between 1.15 and 1.25.
    It is really important you get some X79 Quad Channel memory off the QVL.

    I suggest you look at the P9X79 Deluxe. It clocks nearly as well as the RIVE without all the hardcore OC features and comes loaded with features. I have one in my son's rig and we love it.
