why is it that your the only one getting the results like this and i ask again what are your setting and what tweaks if any
More like a fanboi CHERRY PICKING his data to support his pov. I stopped and laughed when the OP stated the 8150 could trade blows with Intel. Treat it as rantings and raving of fanbois and enjoy the show gingerbee. :)~

I only ever said it trades blows in a specific benchmark , only you on your own came to the conclusion that i meant in all scenarios when this was obviously not what i meant.

Bad news everyone, my ASUS Crosshair V is officially DEAD. I will be purchasing :

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 AM3+

With:

Geil Evo Two DDR3 - 2400 Mhz (2x4Gb)
(10-11-11-30)

--or --

Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 - 2133 Mhz (2x4Gb)
(9-11-10-27)

I am learning for simply the better ram, their prices are near identical.

By I am leaning more towards the Geil (I have had really bad history with Corsair except for their PSU's, that is three individual cases of faulty ssd / ddr3 ram)

Help me choose which ram I should get! I would love to get your guys' opinion on this! ^^

Also, I will be redoing my benchmarks with Windows 8 Consumer Preview!


Stay tuned for this Upgrade. and Results! Thanks for all the support and everybody's patience! ^^

Here are some pics of my new motherboard + ram together. New Post with New benchmarks April 20th.

---


Exit
ASUS Crosshair V +
4 Gb Gskill 2200 CL7

---

Enter
GA-990FX-UD7 +
8 Gb Team Xtreem 2400 CL9






The first thing that came to mind when I first laid eyes on my new Gigabyte 990FX UD7 board was that it was quite the beautiful board. Much respect for the simple PCIE 16x slot latches, the Crosshair V uses a more traditional type, and sleek heatsink design.

EDIT: It should be noted that I received a revision 1.1 board from Newegg Canada, and that it does have Load Line Calibration (LLC) controls in the bios.




The new Team Xtreem DDR3 ram has a cheap but cool looking reflecting sticker, but what is most appealing are the stats: 2400 Mhz @ Cl9, which is only surpassed by Corsair's grossly overpriced and discontinued Dominator GT dual channel flagship memory.





The memory height is not found online, and could be helpful to potential buyers.

Team Xtreem memory height : 52mm

Promlatech Genesis allowed height: 54mm

So this is awfully close to the tallest ram you could use with this cooler. I have seen Dominator GT ram at a height of 54mm barley fitting underneath the heat sink, found here, and a 53 mm Corsair Vengeance stick here.



I am hoping to hit 2600 Mhz speeds with these sticks overclocked, and see exactly where 8 gb benefits over 4 gb with an AMD setup. We shall see in the weeks to come!

Hope you got the newest revision... First batch of those boards did not have LLC
