ASUS WS Revolution Build with i7 for overclocking.

Recommended Posts

Yes I decided but it came down to several issues. I chose the Asus Rampage II GENE micro-atx. I didn't want to upgrade my PC Power & Cooling 750 watt PSU, and planned to use my pair of Sapphire Vapor-X 4890s so I went with a bit of a lesser board as it meets my needs. I won't likely go beyond a pair of graphics cards with new ones coming out so soon. Reviews here and elsewhere have shown it to overclock well and handle 12GB of RAM. Other boards caught my eye but with thoughts of high benchmark scores in mind. After my head quite swirling I found that for my needs the expense wasn't worth it in my case.

 

I usually run between 2-4 systems at a time and have scaled back to 2 for the short-term. With an eye towards converting to X58 for the 6-core processors out next year. For now the RIIGENE meets my short term and longer term needs. I'll likely build at least 2 more X58 systems before the end of the year. I can always get WS next or a Supercomputer board later. This newer system may become a secondary system before too long.

 

Wow sounds good to me! Make sure i see pics please! I have the second fan on now (pics later) and wow it's so loud lol. But i love it honestly so much better than the zalman. I just can't see myself getting rid of the corsairs i have. Since i planned on getting another set anyway for 12 gig. So im definitely going to switch to vertical i also think i did a crappy job when mounting the heat sink because while trying to get the screws lined up it kept sliding with the thermal paste on the cpu. So ill clean surfaces and put more paste on. Been using artic silver. Once thats done ill get the other set of ram. And ill post overclocking specs.

This is wear i am atm i fixed a couple of things with the case mounted second fan and new ram, also reorganized some wiring. Im 'currently on the trial and error phase with my 285 ocing. Little by little. This is still single card config. Once i get the card where i want ill work on the cpu than back to the card. Wish me luck! Case pics soon!
