    MSI has displayed its upcoming X79A-GD45 Gaming motherboard at CES 2013 which is targeted towards gamers and overclockers.
    MSIís X79A-GD45 Gaming makes use of a beefed up power area featuring MSIís Military Class III components and uses a set of heatsinks to cover the MOSFETs/VRMs and the X79 PCH. Compared to the Black and Blue theme on X79A-GD45 and X79A-GD65, the MSI X79A-GD45 Gaming uses a black and gray color scheme. The PCB is matte black in color which adds a fine touch to the overall looks of the board. The X79A-GD45 Gaming comes with Eight DDR3 DIMM slots which can support upto 128 GB of Quad Channel O.C memory. Expansion slots include Five PCI-Express 3.0 x16 and a single PCI-Express 3.0 x1 slot. Motherboard supports Quad-Way SLI and CrossFireX Multiple GPU Functionality.

    I take it that this, Newegg.com - MSI X79A-GD45 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS isn't quite the same motherboard?
    Unfortunately, I bought an i7-3930K the day it became available and have yet to find a motherboard worth trying it in.
    Any idea what a good one may be? I generally rely on owner reviews 1st and site reviews 2nd, since real owners get the boards off the shelf and not hand picked and fully tested by the manufacturer, specifically for review sites.
    I've wasted far too much money on glowing reviews on the review sites, only to find the products to actually be severely lacking in both reported performance and quality.

    if you know who Stan is on here, then ask him about a solid 2011 board. I'm sure he can steer you in the right direction.

    My choices are Asus Rampage IV, MSI Big Bang X-power II, ASrock Extreme or ASrock X79 Champion. Stan and other extreme OC guys will be able to help.

    If you want to go with a ASRock X79 board, then you should defiantly consider the X79 Extreme9, I ran this board with a 3960X and 64GBs of memory, also the ASUS X79 Rampage 4 Extreme, and currently the Asus X79 Rampage 4 Formula. The Extreme9 is currently $100 cheaper than the Rampage 4 Extreme, but it's a great overclocker, with a ton of features, and worth ever Penney

    Thank you both. I'm rather intrigued by the MSI Big Bang II. I also own one but have yet to do anything except buy the parts for this, my most expensive build. I have over 3 grand in the case, memory, cpu, psu, dual loop w/c system, etc.
    Since I bought the board the ratings of it have completely tanked and I guess I want the best motherboard I can get, now, for a backup, jic it actually is a turkey.
    I know this sounds weird, but this is the most ambitious build I've ever attempted and I've been buying the best of the best parts available from a CaseLabs Magnum T10, Aquacomputer Cuplex Kryos Silver Edition block, twin AC Airplex Modularity Copper rads, 12 Noiseblocker NB e-loop fans for the rads, AC aquagraphFX block for my EVGA GTX690, Swiftech MCP35X2 pump, Bitspower Black Freezer block for the mobo, an I&H Stealth reservoir I found on eBay (Brand new!), Corsair 1200i psu, Corsair Platinum DDR-2666 memory, which I just found out is way too fast for the i7-3930K, plus a helluva lot more.
    I guess I just have the jitters having bought all of this for what may turn out to be a not very good motherboard. Just looking for a little assurance and a backup mobo for insurance.
    This is my 1st MSI mobo. I've been using all ASUS up until lately and am now building an ASRock Z77 OC Formula to play with since it's supposedly the best mobo for 1155 right now.
    I guess I'll buy a set of Corsair Platinum DDR3-2400 for the Big Bang and use the 2666 for the Asrock.
    Guess I'm getting paranoid in my old age.
    Thanks for your recommendations.

    I have the ASRock Z77 OC Formula, it's a really great board, also have the MSI Z77 MPower, but I decided to use the Sandy Bridge 2700K chips instead of the 3770K, due to Sandy Bridge running a lot cooler than Ivy. Performance wise, both Z77 boards are damn close to being equal, I used the AVEXIR 2133MHz kits on each system.
    To be very honest with you, I think you would really like the ASRock X79 Extreme9, the only reason I sold the system had to do needing some extra cash to pay for the custom paint and artwork I had done for the build I did for Sapphire Tech, and the build I'm currently working on for VisionTek

    I'm setting up a new X79 system for Pure OC's AIO CPU Cooler round up, for that build I'll be using the Intel DX79SI, 64GBs of Kingston HyperX 2133MHz. Kingston HyperX 480GB SSD, and a couple of HD7970s, everything will be installed in the NZXT P820, we need to test each cooler in the same case with the same system

    I don't do mods. I just hook everything up and hide the cables as best as I can. Use pre-colored tubing and pre-sleeved cable extensions.
    That's why I went with a CaseLabs Magnum T10. Any case mod I want I can just buy from them and then screw it in place.
    About the only mod I'm considering is drilling a hole for a fill port for the reservoir.
    I haven't the experience and tools to mod. I'd also have to buy a camera. The last, and only, one I ever owned was a Poloroid Swinger. Given to me when I was about 12 or 13.
    That would've been about 1969 or 1970, I think. I just don't like photography. It's so backwards looking. I try to not live in the past.

    Sorry, but if I want or need to look at one of my past builds then I take it (or them) out of storage.
    The only computer I have ever trashed was my very 1st one. A damned Dell. I had exactly zero intention of seeing that piece of crap ever again.
    I don't even remember the name of it. I averaged the highest and lowest priced models and bought whatever the mid-range was on 11-22-2001. 7 days after I bought the last X-Box at BestBuy, the day after it became available sale. I also have the X-Box stored with the only game I ever bought for it. Halo, of course. I beat it within about 14 hours and then at every level in that one week. I never found another game for it worth buying.
    There's supposed to be some way to mod an original X-Box to make it an HTPC, I think. I need to research that, now that I've remembered to.
    Why have you taken an interest in my dislike of cameras? I don't get it.

    I don't even remember the name of it. I averaged the highest and lowest priced models and bought whatever the mid-range was on 11-22-2001. 7 days after I bought the last X-Box at BestBuy, the day after it became available sale. I also have the X-Box stored with the only game I ever bought for it. Halo, of course. I beat it within about 14 hours and then at every level in that one week. I never found another game for it worth buying.

    I just turned 57. What do you expect? Especially since I've been here a year longer than you.
    Just because I don't post umpteen times a day doesn't mean I haven't been here all along.
    I really don't have enough wisdom to share by posting almost 201 times per month for the past 18 months like some people.
    I mean, that would make me some kind of a posting whore. Wouldn't it?

    Ironically, when I saw your name listed under recent posts on the forum index, I assumed you were a spambot, not a person. lol

    What does turning 57 have to do with it, I'll be 59 in 6 days. Also, just because people have something to say, or like staying updated does not make them a posting whore lol

    Is this the board that this thread is about? Newegg.com - MSI X79A-GD45 Plus LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
    It's listed as an MSI X79A-GD45 Plus LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard. NewEgg lists it as a new item and it has yet to have any reviews posted.
    One spec bothers me though. It says it's capable of DDR3 3000/2800/2600 (1600+(OC)). Is that even possible with a Sandy Bridge cpu? Almost all of the other boards list DDR3 2400 as the max memory OC.

    Its a typo on Newegg's part,looking at MSI's website it only list's DDR3 1066/1333/1600/1800*/2133*/2400*(*OC).
