    companies have been known to withhold hardware from certain review sites because they werent satisfied with the previous review the site done on their hardware.

    which is just silly imo

    ASUS has kept tight-lipped about these products because of the T-Topology tech they are introducing with these boards. T-Topology is tech to increase memory overlcocking when all slots are populated, and hence the large number of "pro clockers" with ASUS products pre-release.

    Who better to test this stuff, right? ;)

    As to my own reviews affecting them sending samples, that's not the feedback I've been given, of course, or W1zz would be tearing me a new one.:laugh:

    is there better memory scaling with IB?? i.e if 1600 be the sweet spot for SB etc etc

    Check Dumo's posts here. He's posted a fair bit of stuff with memory clocks, even a few over 3000 MHz, i think, or very close at least.


    In other words, yes, IVB clocks ram really well.;) ASUS better than others, apparantly, although I haven't played much with Z77 myself yet. I think 2400 MHz on IVB is the new 1600 MHz. ;)

    I understand, and I am as well, evne more so than most, as I run multiple VGAs. I'm sure you'l lremember that I have complained quite a bit in the past about AMD's lackluster memory performance affecting multi-gpu gaming.

    WIth SB, 1866 is really the sweet-spot, where nearly no voltage addition is needed for the IMC with nearly any type of capable memstick. Even if gains are modest, for me, the maximum while not having to increase voltage is where we should be.

    On X79, this has increased to 2133 MHz.

    I think IVB might do 2400 MHz, but again, I haven't spent a lot of time playing to be able to confirm, but that's what I expect.

    I'm not a pro or even a reviewer, doing oc as a hobby since amd fx51 days:)
    Overclocking is a way to relax after 55 hours+ work week. Lol

    Bought this deluxe from Newegg and Gskill 2800 from Taiwan's vendor.
    As far as M5G and ES Ivy go, I will have to send 'em back to a friend engineer that built the board then I will wait for Ivy to show up @ my local micro center:)

    Best to stay independent (overclocker) because of no string attached, buy the hardware and noone can say anything.

    Imo, any retail Ivy chip on air will @ least do 2600 mem (depending on ram) but not all will do 2800+. It will depends on how good the cpu imc.

    Board is awesome with DDR3 2840 all 4 dimm slots:)

    Board and trident rams still wanna go higher but stop @ post code 23 cpu fail to init. when set to 2933 in bios.

    Cpu's imc max out on air cooling.

    @ 2900 mem, no MVP

    Does high memory speed make a big difference in IvyBridge unlike SandyBridge?

    wow dumo ..You're a wild man ! ,validating RAM @ 3000 + is one thing but benching is another :0
    are this TridentX 2666 ?? => 3000 CL11 is sick
