Why did you order the EVGA if you wanted the Rampage?

What board would you suggest for someone that wants a stable 4.0GHz+ on a core i7 920 (Probably will change depending on what Intel releases) Liquid cooled and wants the best performance for gaming and would like to venture into the LN2 overclocking field in the future?

When you get into the upper ranges on these processors, it is very rare that the mobo will hold you back unless you have a one in a thousand chip. Naturally, lower-end boards won't have the necessary fine-tuning options available in the BIOS to really push the chip but 4Ghz shouldn't be an issue. I can easily get that on my Gigabyte X58 UD5. I've seen chips hit 4.4Ghz on a Gigabyte UDR3 too.

Naturally, Gigabyte doesn't have any boards that looks quite as good as the RoG series but for people on a budget, there is still the Rampage II Gene and P6T boards.

Cool thanks man, I have quite a load of cash that I have saved up over the years (Whenever I get a new PC I start saving for my next one) so I have been using this PC for the last 4 ~Almost 5 years and really just want to buy the best things money can buy lol, considering I can only upgrade every 4-5 years.

I will not touch the Hydra board before they show some maturity. they will be only fewof them, so don't expect the same budget will be invest in drivers developments.

Yeah further reading of the review outlined a few problems to me, "Most expensive board yet" and how they said they think it will be buggy because of the ATI & NVIDIA chip thing.

It performs very poorly as a matter of fact, which is why I made that sarcastic post.
