    No, I'm not implying anything.

    I'm plainly stating that if you are going to complain about this forum on another, then please go post there and not here.

    Why can't he just go to both either way? E: Then he can eventually decide which he likes best. Us or them. :)

    Bad news everyone, my ASUS Crosshair V is officially DEAD. I will be purchasing :

    GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 AM3+

    With:

    Geil Evo Two DDR3 - 2400 Mhz (2x4Gb)
    (10-11-11-30)

    --or --

    Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 - 2133 Mhz (2x4Gb)
    (9-11-10-27)

    I am learning for simply the better ram, their prices are near identical.

    By I am leaning more towards the Geil (I have had really bad history with Corsair except for their PSU's, that is three individual cases of faulty ssd / ddr3 ram)

    Help me choose which ram I should get! I would love to get your guys' opinion on this! ^^

    Also, I will be redoing my benchmarks with Windows 8 Consumer Preview!


    Stay tuned for this Upgrade. and Results! Thanks for all the support and everybody's patience! ^^

    Recognizing that I do not speak for anyone but myself, but I would prefer that a new thread was created for the Windows 8 numbers with the FX.

    I think it deserves a new thread, and the members of this community would benefit greatly in having access to early results of the AMD FX on windows 8 :thumbsup:

    TL;DR - Do IT!

    Here are some pics of my new motherboard + ram together. New Post with New benchmarks April 20th.

    ---


    Exit
    ASUS Crosshair V +
    4 Gb Gskill 2200 CL7

    ---

    Enter
    GA-990FX-UD7 +
    8 Gb Team Xtreem 2400 CL9



    [​IMG]


    The first thing that came to mind when I first laid eyes on my new Gigabyte 990FX UD7 board was that it was quite the beautiful board. Much respect for the simple PCIE 16x slot latches, the Crosshair V uses a more traditional type, and sleek heatsink design.

    EDIT: It should be noted that I received a revision 1.1 board from Newegg Canada, and that it does have Load Line Calibration (LLC) controls in the bios.

    [​IMG]


    The new Team Xtreem DDR3 ram has a cheap but cool looking reflecting sticker, but what is most appealing are the stats: 2400 Mhz @ Cl9, which is only surpassed by Corsair's grossly overpriced and discontinued Dominator GT dual channel flagship memory.


    [​IMG]


    The memory height is not found online, and could be helpful to potential buyers.

    Team Xtreem memory height : 52mm

    Promlatech Genesis allowed height: 54mm

    So this is awfully close to the tallest ram you could use with this cooler. I have seen Dominator GT ram at a height of 54mm barley fitting underneath the heat sink, found here, and a 53 mm Corsair Vengeance stick here.

    [​IMG]

    I am hoping to hit 2600 Mhz speeds with these sticks overclocked, and see exactly where 8 gb benefits over 4 gb with an AMD setup. We shall see in the weeks to come!

    BS thread, sorry. I read your "stable on air" frequency and had to laugh.

    For my CPU or GPU? Regardless my clocks are more than stable enough for long term use and every benchmark i ran multiple times without any issue. :confused:
