Urgent want to buy Intel X79 motherboard

Hi guys,

i want to make my decision to buy motherboard for my new build. i was planning to buy ASUS RAMPAGE IV EXTREME - LGA2011 - X79 - 8x DIMM - PCIe 3.0 Motherboards but it seems Little bit expansive since amazon not stocking the board now, so there is any alternative board that can work the same even if it same price?


im planning to install the following :

I7 3930K

16GB 2133mhz quad channel

690GTX

Samsung SSD 830


im not fan of overclocking but some overclocking feature will be welcomed.

  1. Sabertooth X79, awesome board and sounds like just what you are looking for, good reliability and components.

    Also, ASUS have just released CAP converters for their BIOS's for improved Windows 8 compatability.
  2. Urg, can't wait until I can edit my posts! Anyway, I was meant to add the Sabertooth can do OC'ing just fine as you can see from my sig.
  3. The Intel® Desktop board DX79SI has what you are looking for. Also if you want Asus you can look at the Asus P9X79 Pro which should fit your needs very well.

    Sabertooths are the "military" spec boards, with a focus on reliability over tweakage - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_2011/SABERTOOTH_X79/
