Wow! Ivy Bridge-E Does DDR3-3900 Quad Channel on Rampage IV Extreme BE!

The Intel Developer's Forum has only just started, and there are already some impressive overclocking results achieved. Without spending too many lines on this achievemend, Shamino's Rampage IV Extreme Black Edition - ASUS' X79 refresh for Ivy Bridge-E - managed to hit DDR3-3900 Quad Channel! This kind of memory overclocking capability is suprising, and unexpected to say the least. Who knew Ivy Bridge(-E) could reach these heights?!

Awesome IMC and stunning looking board !

To bad the memory to run it costs $1500

Belgium Massman says:

Not part of the solution I see :rolleyes:

Beats buying 2 x 750$ Vengeance and not being anywhere close to that result now doesn't it?

I'm interested in seeing how much better the new boards are, compared to the first gen of X79 releases :) At the mo, I have NO idea what board to buy....but know that this is heading OT, so- sorry!

Memory oc is drastically improved and the OC Panel hooks right up to the BE, so that is an added benefit over the original.

Belgium Massman says:

Yeah, seems like the R4EBE (is that the right acronym?) is the strongest X79 board out there right now. I must say I was outright surprised when seeing the DDR3-3900, pretty cool! Seems like Evga's Dark board is starting to match the CPU overclocking capabilities of the R4EBE too. Other boards are either not strong enough (yet), or haven't seen any results.

I think, it's just R4BE, without "Extreme"... at least based on the inscriptions on the board...
