I'm trying to get input for my next build, I'm going with a 980x, and I've been liking the rampage III extreme.
I plan on filling all the slots with 24GB of ram. The thing I see might be a problem is that I really want to get a
240GB OCZ RevoDrive, this is PCIe x4, and I was wondering if I'll have a problem putting that in, and messing
up the bandwidth for my graphics cards in the other PCIe slots?
I plan on going with either a couple 6990s or 3 6970s. (possibly just 2 though) I have an 800D case,
1200W PC Power and cooling psu, and a MP655 pump water cooled loop now. I plan on keeping all of that on this
next build, and I would like to get the 980x up to 4GHZ.
Please comment and critique the plan now (before I drop $3K and realize I should have done something different)
It does support CrossFireX, if you look at the Details tab and under Features. At the price of the EVGA X58 FTW3, I would go with the ASUS P6X58D-E or P6X58D Premium. IMO
I would recommend the Classified 3 over the ASUS Rampage III for a couple of reasons, 1) IMO, EVGA's highend boards are the best overall boards - overall quality, price & performance (Overclocking & GPU power [3-Way SLI & PhysX]), & 2) As an owner I can contest to their quality and performance.
You will be fine with either choice so go with the board you feel meets your needs & likes the most.
