I would have side stepped to this board if my Koolance RIVE block worked on the BE. Doesn't, so I skip it and most likely grab a 780ti.

I think this board plus a 4820K sounds awfully tempting at the moment.

I really wanted one, but don't want to have to bust for another water block on top of the mobo. Plus, just grabbed a 4770k and Asus Expert so really don't need any more gear. That is unless I sold the z87 stuff, bought the BE and swapped the rive in there. That means buying a 4930k tho. Lol, too much neat gear these days.


Prolly just grab a 780ti or two :-)

I don't use motherboard blocks. But I forgot that I'd need to create a couple of new acrylic bends for my loop. More than likely I'd ruin the clean lines so I'll likely stick w/ my 4670K + Z87X-UD5.

Shame I would have liked to move back to a rig where I can use 8 DIMMs.

My Murderbox has pretty terrible airflow up top, so a heavy OC pretty much requires a block.

Looks I will be passing as well. .

I put my order in though I shoulda waited to see the reviews and see if they re-release a revision in a month as I still require a strong gpu for my build.
