ASUS X751LN-DH71-CA Notebook Intel Core i7 4510U (2.00GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M 17.3

EVGA X79 DARK - LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 E-ATX Motherboard with Brand New GUI BIOS (150-SE-E789-KR)

Pros: The overclock is stable.

Cons: This board has been RMA twice and is still not performing reliably.
Issues which persist:
(1) Frequent reboots at start. Once it is up and running it is fine.
(2) Has trouble identifying the correct boot disk and goes to the wrong disk with the resulting message of no O/S. Reboot and go to bios and reset the boot sequence and it is fine, until the next time.

Other Thoughts: The time it takes to RMA a product makes me hesitant to do it as I will be without a computer for three to four weeks. As long as it can perform once it is up and running I'll just continue with the irritant of start up.

I would have thought that EVGA would have taken the problem more seriously and fixed it before. Failing that they should offer a new board until all problems are resolved that way the customer is less inconvenienced..

EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN DirectX 11.1 06G-P4-2795-KR 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Nice to have a new device with all drivers working.
Very fast and very smooth.

Cons: It really is a Titan with a titan price.

Other Thoughts: I used to have my video card water cooled but the last one (GTX680) did not come with plates and none were available until quite a bit later, by which time it was already installed.

Water cooling really is the only way to go.
