This is going to be my first oc/crossfire build for a pc. I've been scrounging the internet to find resources on which mobo i should choose. The mobo would have to support at least 3 gpu's specifically 7950's if that is of any help. I would also need an easy oc from what i've figured so far is some mobo's come with auto oc software. The cpu's going to be an i7 4770k, Any advice on overclocking is much obliged, i've been thinking of using a h110 by corsair for the heatsink, and if anyone knows if that would fit in a phantom 630 that would be great too. The ram i'm clue less about for as far as i can tell high ram speeds may be useful for oc and some os tasks, i'm not entirely sure. If i have 4 channels for ram should i buy 4 separate sticks or would 2 suffice? Would i get a better performance boost from one or the other? I don't intend to oc the ram, but if it can help with the cpu oc or overall pc in tasks i don't mind. Any advice is much appreciated.
I've heard good things about asus and i realize they are the most reliable on the market and their is a 50 dollar price cut i'll look at some mobo's then before i make my final decision, but thanks for the advice.
It is seeming more and more likely that i should just bite the bullet and get the ASRock oc formula, it looks nice though do you know if it has built in blue tooth capabilities? I sometimes like to play emulated games, and using my wii mote through a built in blue tooth would make things a tad bit easier.
Yeah well i accidentally chose this as the solution no idea how to un solution it, but anywho i kinda went with your suggestion and am going to get the oc formula. Though i gotta ask what would you need 8 ram slots for? Also, know anything about oc'ing ram?
