    Nope. Not at all or at least the others are the same with this one being different.
    the trace layout for memory on this board is different and the routing as well, which are specifically tailored or rather more tailored to XOC. You may run into CBB issues on the other boards, yes you can configure the settings in the UEFI to avoid this, but why when you can just press a button for it

    As for the YouTube links. It helps if it's not just links with no info. Soon enough we will just have threads with links and no text at all.
    Everyday I know less and less about more and more.

    Things like just make me want to understand how to OC, although that is for a later stage I love reading threads of oaks pushing hardware just to see what they can really do :P.

    Just think about why you would want to overclock your hardware, if you want your GPU backplate to double as an egg fryer, which is possible, then it's maybe not for you

    Thankfully I don't have a backplate right now :P and also why I won't overclock on air unless the conditions are regulated, otherwise when I decide to go WC I will begin OC'ing if I have the knowledge, if not I will begin learning from that point. But WHY I want to overclock is I love seeing hardware being able to run stable at high clocks, and I may want to try push some old CPU's to breaking point just to see how far they are willing to go :P.

    This motherboard is AWESOME!



    CORSAIR DOMINATOR PLATINUM SPECIAL EDITON doing 4,266MHz! even though the memory is rated at 3200MHZ Not at some insane voltage either a very safe and 24/7 capable 1.45V


    Threw this one in here for the sake of it, this CPU is a bit rubbish needing 1.4V for 5.1GHz, IMC is okay though.


    Massive Bandwidth figures which can be significantly improved. Right up there in X99 territory.

    Now with a lemon of a CPU, still like this one but it's been retired now to my 24/7 box.
