Excellent Board

ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Layout was perfect. Dual molex to the PCI-E bus was a great idea. The Bios with the correct knowledge of understanding computers took no brain thought at all.

Cons: What Asus doesnt tell People is when enabling your 2200Mhz DDR3 to XMP it only sets them to 2133. I had to raise the bus to the value of 103 to correct the XMP to 2200 on how it should be set. Future bios may fix this bug or maybe a FAQ page on ASUS website might help users understand.

Overall Review: I was Pro EVGA for everything untill EVGA dropped the ball. ASUS has brought us what we have been asking forever. This board has everything someone with a 1155 CPU would ever need. After doing tests with my SLI GTX295 in dual 16x mode and in SLI without the NF200 in dual 8x mode, i found no improvement at all with Frame rates. I'm currently running my cards in slot 1 and 3 for the best cooling reasons and its working out great. Intel 2600k 5Ghz @ 1.9v 49/103 Gskill 2200Mhz Cas7 XMP enabled 103 bus to correct the memory speed

Pros: Everything

Cons: None

Overall Review: Absolutely can't go wrong make sure you get nothing but the best water cooler that directly supports the AM5. The Asus ROG Ryujin 360 does an amazing job. Never saw more than 80c

Beast...!

GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 4090 24GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card GV-N4090AORUSX W-24GD
GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 4090 24GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card GV-N4090AORUSX W-24GD

Pros: Everything

Cons: Only the current state of the $USD makes this the most I've ever spent on a new computer.

Overall Review: I completed a new build with the 7950x and the fantastic Gigabyte 4090 with no regret. She chews through everything including psycho setting cyberpunk. Fresh install Windows 11 22H2 on a temporary 980pro 2TB, I dont personally have an issues. The Cablemod 16pin cable and the HAF 700 Evo with the card vertically mounted makes everything super clean. The 4090 had zero clearance issues with a vertically mounted and I highly suggest anyone else starting to build. Gigabyte has done a fantastic job making the 4090 as it would of been.
