MotherBoard: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard

Thanx for the help in advance

Nope, the board is made for intel processors, not amd.

How about this?
i7-3770k
Asus p8z77-v pro

Ok, changed the Motherboard (silly mistake) and changed the processor to Intel Core i7 3770K. How are things looking now? :)

Thats way over kill on the psu, a 7970 only requires a 550 watt psu. Something in the 650-750 range would be plenty

What if he wants to Crossfire? That will run four 7970's and is future-proof!

Any suggestions for a 650-750w power supply?
May 6, 2012 5:22:36 AM

Corsair HX750W.

Ok so now my build stands at:


- ASUS Radeon HD7970 DirectCU II 3GB

- G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-19200CL11Q-16GBZHD 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3

- CoolerMaster HAF X Case

- ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard

- Intel Core i7 3770K

- Corsair HX-750 Power Supply

Should this be setting me back $2100, or am I getting ripped off? :lol:

You can't use the Rampage Extreme because that is a different chipset/socket! The only processors that are supported are the i7-3820 and 3930k! However, the 3770k outperforms the 3820 and the 3930k will set you back further!

So them what mobo should I go with -_- That would fit the 3770k?
May 6, 2012 5:40:43 AM

I am asumming you want high end?
That would either be the ASUS P8z77-V PRO, or the Asrock Fatal1ty Professional, or Gigabyte Z77-UD5h
May 6, 2012 5:43:29 AM

I chose the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO. NOW will it all be compatible? :D 
May 6, 2012 5:47:18 AM

Yep! But do you have an hard drive, copy of windows, and cpu cooler?
May 6, 2012 7:07:17 AM

Already have Hard Drive and a copy of windows.

CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
