    Going to try the 3930K as well as the 3960X, I just received a new 16GB kit 2400MHz from Kingston today, so hopefully they'll work great with the Gigabyte board.

    Bill is right on this one, I found out first hand, if you have more than 8 or 12gbs of RAM its much harder to OC your rig. Even 4gb probably would be plenty in most cases. Jmho.

    Comes down to QPI v needed, Either for ram amount or lane voltage needed for it.


    Brought this up in another thread.
    Jury's still out for me.

    Thats why on the good or extreme OC attemps you usually don't see more than 6 gigs and usually 4 using
    as few slots as you can depending on the board.

    Default Re: Gigabyte X79 UD7

    Would KILL to have this board for my upcoming RV01 theme, too bad it won't fit, DAMMIT.

    Anyone have any idea how what kind of clearance I would need in order to get it to fit?
