I'm building my new computer and it's almost ready i just have to choose the mobo and i would like to know your opinions about the Asus P7P55D-E Deluxe and if i will be able to hit 4Ghz without much trouble and make it stable for 24/7 with power saving options turned on like C1E to downclock when the computer is idle. What do you guys think? Is it possible with this mobo?
I choose this one over the Maximus III formula because i will need USB 3 and SATA 3 in the future and i'm not planning on upgrading my computer so soon.
The processor is unlocked and i will try to reach 4Ghz with the memory G.Skill @ 2000Mhz CL 6-9-6-24 but as i said before i really would like to keep the power saving options turned on because the machine will stay up for 24/7 and stable of course.
About the board i cant help you, i posted a similar question myself just now... but seeing your rig i notice you have two graphic cards, one "Gigabyte GT 240 512 GDDR5 (Just for PhysX)", i dont see why, since the GTX 480 suports PhysX itself.
Sure i will update the bios before i start overcloking it but i have to be sure about the power saving options first because with my E8400 was a pain in the ass and in the end i had to turn off every power saving option to get it stable but thanks for the review link i will read after work
