The Rampage IV Extreme is really for people who want to "extreme" overclock using Liquid Nitrogen/Helium/other extreme methods. For a standard user, there is no point getting the Rampage IV, since most of the features won't go into use.

Well that's what I was maybe thinking of doing. Even though the rampage extreme IV is for extreme overclocking I would still get it, if there was loads of features that the P9X79 Pro didn't have, but it actually seems that they have exactly the same spec apart from USB ports and one PCI slot:

Thanks again

The specs are pretty much the same, but the small additions for extreme overclockers and the ROG branding is why the price is so high.

Will I still be able to overclock the cpu (Intel Core i7-3930K 3.20GHz) on this motherboard?

If so what kind of speeds would I be able to reach on the Asus P9X79 Pro, would I be able to hit 4-4.5GHz

Just not to the same extent as the rampage right?

Arvind!

It depends on your chip mate. If you have a good chip you should easily be able to hit 4.5GHz. This is known as the silicone lottery as some people end up with really bad chips, some with decent chips and others with amazing chips.

Overclocking wise, I'm not sure what the difference would be on traditional means of cooling (air or water), but many people say that there is usually very little or no difference between the overclocking potential of different boards.

If I get lucky with the silicon lottery, do you think I would be able to overclock to 4.5GHz on the P9X79 Pro motherboard using the NH-D14 cpu cooler?

Thanks

Arvind!

Definitely dude. Even if you don't get lucky with the silicone lottery 4.2 - 4.5GHz should still be achievable.

Great stuff, then I think i'll save myself £100 and go for the P9X79 Pro

How does this RAM look, was thinking of going for 2 x 16GB:

You can't go wrong with Kingston products, but I'm not too sure about the SSD.
