    I might just buy Extreme motherboard if I have to pay only $100 than that of V Formula/Thunderfx.
    As Extreme also do support Intel® HD Graphics, InTru™ 3D, Quick Sync Video, Clear Video HD Technology, Insider™
    and only thing extreme MB misses is Sound Card for which I will my one of High End Asus Xonar.

    By the way which Xeon processor can carry 20 VMs. would someone please comment on this, the name of processor?

    Thanks,
    :D

    1 x 8gb

    2 x 8gb (looser timings due to one more stick)

    Difference is obvious? They're the same thing.

    Different quality of memory IC, or even completely different IC itself.

    Probably completely different sticks


    C10R at the end is hints that that kit is kind of designed to overclock. All the red vengeance kis should offer some clocking that the black/white/blue ones do not. Note that the new 3000 MHz sticks from Corsair are Red Vengeance sticks...red = overclocking.


    Differences between those sticks, when run at XMP settings, will be pretty similar.

    Not necessarily. It's possible the cas latency is a little lower due to it being a single stick and less load on the IMC. I'd like to see a 2 stick set of that red stuff to know for sure.

    *Found a 16gb kit (2 sticks) of the red stuff and timings are a bit lower, so yeah possible different IC's.

    Either way, don't just buy a single stick.

    I am going to buy
    Samsung 840 Series 250 GB SSD Internal Hard Drive (MZ-7TD250BW) than
    Samsung 840 Pro Series 256 GB SSD

    I don't see there is noticeable difference in speed among these two drives.

    Wireless n standard has enough bandwidth for that so it should work fine, mine works ok but I can't actually remember the highest quality ive watched.

    there is not a single best fan controller. just search for a few that function how you want with enough Watts per channel to control your fans. Lamptron controllers are solid.

    Hi Guys,
    Please tell me which board has best Audio Vgene or V formula, I am reading in some review that V gene has better sound output than V formula.

    Don't choose the board based on audio. If you really care that much you should get a separate audio card anyways. The Gene is a micro-atx board, so it's small. The Formula is a full ATX board with more expansion opportunities. I would personally go with the Formula and if the audio bothers you, then upgrade. The difference between the two shouldn't be a deciding factor on which motherboard you want to get.

    Also according to your picture they both have the same thing, so are you really asking a question? :p
    Choose the smaller one if you need a small board, or the Formula if you need a big board. Done.

    My other question is:-
    I am going to buy Samsung 840 Pro Series 256 GB SSD Internal Hard Drive (MZ-7PD256BW), so should I buy another say 60GB mstat drive for caching SSD,
    First of all, will 60GB msata drive work as cache memory to my 256 GB SSD ?
