Compatibilty problems??? Asus Rampage IV Extreme Lga 2011 + gtx780 PCI 3.0 + Intel Core i7-4930K


After reading and reading ... this is mi first thread.

Im going to build this PC:

- Asus Rampage IV Extreme Lga 2011
- Intel Core i7- 4930K
- EVGA gtx780 ti PCI 3.0
- 2 X (Kingston HyperX Beast DDR3 2133 PC3-17000 16GB 2X8GB CL11 ) = 32 Gb

Ive readed problems with the compatibility with processors Ivy B-E using PCIe 3.0

Are they solved?
What RAM is better to implement 32Gb ?
Is this a good configuration for a WS for gamming development?

Thanks all for your help... and sorry aboout my poor English ;-)

  1. Yep good combo, and for DRAM would look at the GSkill Tridents or Snipers in 4x8GB 2133/9 or 2400/10 - will have a killer rig for developement work (and an awful good gaming rig for testing the games
  2. Thanx for the answer.

    And whats new about the problems about activate the PCI 3.0 with new processors Ivy Bridge -E and LGA 2011 (4930k)???. Thats my only doubt to confirm this configuration.

    Thank you all for your help.

    Can check the BIOS ver on the box, if need be can flash the BIOS:
  4. The BIos Update solves the problem with the micro Ivi Bridge - E...

    but does it solve the problem about the graphic card runing over the PCI 3.0???? with a IB-E micro?
  5. HI!

    FInally this is my definitive configuration.

    Asus Rampage IV Extreme
    Intel Core I7-4930K 3.4Ghz Box
    Asus GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB GDDR5
    Noctua NH-D14 SE2011
    G.Skill Trident X DDR3 2400 PC3-19200 32GB 4x8GB CL10

    Once the BIOS is updated there arent problems in compatibility with Ivy Bridge-E and the micro... and the GPU works fine with PCI 3.0 activated. The ram works fine in 2400Mhz with the XMP config.

    The only problem was that the RAM heat sinks are too big to fit with the cpu heat sink Noctua dh14, and they must to be removed for the ram installation.

    Thanx for your help.
  6. That's a nice thing about the Tridents, easy upper fin removal
