    I want to thank cadaveca, if you're reading this, it was your excellent review of this board that made me decide to go with MSI for my new build, sorry Asus, but you're too late to the game this time around! :p

    I haven't decided yet if this will replace the 3930K in my main build, of I'll order a couple 780s to start a brand new rig... For now I've just decided to take this puppy for a ride along with my water cooled Titans :rockout:

    Will keep you guys posted! :toast:

    Very interested to hear what you think of it all. Be sure to run stock at first and check vCPU in BIOS.

    Yes, will run everything at stock first, you used one helluva air cooler for your tests, so i don't think my H100 will be any better, but today I'm just gonna put everything together, I'll be back in a while. My memory kit is not nearly as fast as the one you used either (only 1866 :p)

    Besides it is over a 100 degrees out there today, even with the AC on I don't plan on any OCing until dawn hours :p

    I hope you can help me later adjusting the voltages for this proc, I know you have waaaay more experience in that department :p :respect:

    Once again, thank you very much for your reviews, and keep up the good work, it's greatly appreciated :toast:

    You are right about ASUS not coming out with better top of the line boards. They seam to be behind on the Rampage thing for the new Intel CPUs. I know it just launched but you would think they would be all over the launch with new Rampage boards knowing people will buy a new CPU and want a good board to go with it.


    I have a Haf 932 were did you get the PSU cover for the wires? I am going to make my own but just wanted to know if you made that or you can buy them? Thanks

    Been in contact with silverstone since the start of this week, and now in contact with one of their suppliers, hoping to send me a TD02 - Tundra 240mm AIO Cooler, in from East Asia for me to check out. Maybe produce a review for TPU, as I dont think anyone else has done one yet?

    "Rampage" is a name reserved for Intel HEDT platforms only, i.e X-series chipsets(X38, X48, X58, X79). Since there is not/will not be an 8-series X chipset, there will be no 8-series Rampage. Expect the Rampage V to be a 9-series board. Until then, you'll just have to cope with your quad-channel RAM and 40 PCIE lanes.:rolleyes:
    SEXY!

    I am going to make the cover to hid the PSU as well as the pump and wires. I am also thinking of covering up the bay side claps with a flat side part with carbon fiber covering it as well as the PSU cover. What you think?

    Carbon fiber seems to be the trend nowadays...that's why I don't like it!
    I really liked your first screenshots where 2 black lines crossed the 3.5 clamps and hdd cages to finish up in the end of the PSU cover,gave the system that automotive look that every PC should have in my opinion.
    Anyway my advice would try anything...if u don't like it,work it back:)

    That is true the line idea does look better. I was thinking of doing both. Have carbon fiber but paint red lines going up from the PSU all the way to the top of the side bays. They would not be wide red lines just two but just enough to make the case pop. When the red lines hit the HD covers they would be outlines in black the same as the carbon fiber so to tie it all together.

    Yes that is sexy I must say.... I am going to get acrylic and bend it into the shpe like what this guy did for both the PSU cover and the bay cover. That was my idea from the start. I will put the the carbon fiber on the acrylic and BAM...:) I have been watching how to heat up and bend acrylic on you tube. It seams easy. I am going to have to take a lot of readings to make sure everything fits and looks great. I am going to ask for a Dremel and a set of tools for fathers day coming up....:):)

    That light by the PSU sure is bright! :D

    Awesome! :rockout:

    Please upload more pics when you're done with your build!

    I finished my build last night and tested for leaks for 24hrs, the only problem is I can't enable SLI when using surround :(

    I googled around and other surround users are reporting the same issue with Haswell, I guess I have to wait for nvidia to release some sort of hot fix:banghead:

    Yes Nvidia is working on new drivers. I was talking to one of my friends at Nvidia and he said they should be out in a week or so. They are testing them now. I also never get the first gen stuff because it will always have problems. I wait until after and then get it. ASUS is coming out with a new board that looks great. One of my friends that went to CES told me about it.

    This board is a thing of beauty, I'm sure even Aegon Targaryen would be proud of the dragon crest:

    And what better illustrate its draconic heritage than a dragon punch to the spleen!

    :rockout::laugh:

    Yes, the exact same thing happened when X79 came out, it took a couple days for Nvidia to release a fix, makes you wonder how exactly this ppl test their cards on new boards... :p

    Excellent! What memory kit are you using for your rig? Those 780s will scream paired to your 4770K! :rockout:

    LMAO! He choose an awesome board! Been reading many reviews and it seems like it has no equal when it comes to value and performance.

    Besides, you know what they say, great minds think alike :laugh::toast:
