    I was so close to getting the X79 Extreme11... I kinda wish I had gone that route but the Z97 'newness' blinded me :D

    Running quad SLI and intending to, don't know why anyone would go anything less =) i want 144fps 4k x 3 monitor surround with head room and to just push the 3960x enough so it keeps on giving.


    I have acronis imaging software and a spare 840 pro SSD that i can do a fresh install on, then export the settings only leaving the files on my current drive intact! If anyone can give me advice on any fail safe steps to getting everything up and running I'll launch it.

    If you did flash your board's BIOS to 2.60 or beyond and did not do it correctly, your PC probably has problems because of that. But you won't tell us about your CPU and other hardware, and what your BIOS history is, so there is nothing else I can tell you.

    Please help me :) You sound knowledgeable on the subject.

    If i can help you let me know -=)
