Default Re: Asus Striker Extreme or EVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR

What i said was look for the c5d performance report...you then decided to link to the compatibility list two different things there noob.

The reason that corsair HAVENT done a performance report for c5d modules on the Asus striker is because they are pathetic at running it...

You have admitted yourself that your wrong in saying they can run them fine, as 4 c4d sticks wont even overclock properly, the original reason why you switched dimms u numb nut.

P.s Get a grip, its a debate and your acting as though someone has raped your mother.....or is someone slating your precious litle asus mobo worse than that for you lol......cry me a river tbh

Yes, number 2 is an EVGA board, but 3 and 4 are Strikers.
does not matter; the boards are basically the same thing.

Except the asus is 60 more expensive and does not handle high speed memory as good.

Conclusion...Next friday when i get my pay cheque, my money will be going on the EVGA 122 ck and 2 EVGA 8800GTX superclocked acs models.

Reasons are stated in other posts but to add to that EVGA have a lot better customer support (Still waiting for a chipset fan from asus for my A8N-SLI).
And from everything i have read, price to performance ratio, the EVGA wins hands down.

More expensive yes, but aside from the four stick dominator issue, it does handle high speed memory at least as well as the EVGA. And the four stick issue will most likely be solved in the next BIOS.

Striker has better cooling and better power regulation, which is why I went with it over the EVGA.

Enjoy your new hardware.

No argument there. I'm still waiting on a reply for a P5B BIOS chip; I submitted an email for that almost a year ago.

God. You mean to tell me that they have FOUR different models of this motherboard out now?

Glad I gave up that circus.

Tbh both motherboards are probably the best NF680I boards available. And choosing between the two is a task.

I also got to add that the lifetime guarantee of the EVGA swayed me towards them too (not that i would need it lol but it shows if they have that much confidence in there products there obviousley reliable).

With either mobo, if you have the GPU's to match, come September when Crysis, UT3, MOH:airborne and Alan wake amongst others are released we will be playing some awesome looking games at the best available settings.

EVGA all the way here. Customer service is top notch, and that far out weighs the Striker's few extra features (not to mention their $400 price tag).

A1 is the new rev for improved quad core support. As I understand it T1 doesn't have the manual and has less cables so it has a reduced price, otherwise it's the same.

BTW who has tried the Evga 680i with all four memory slots populated and did it reduce or limit your CPU FSB overclock? I am thinking about trying an A1 when I go quad core and I'd be using 4 x 1GB
