Yer, I do agree Andy and I am really enjoying gaming again and at a stand still with Benching, as my 1300W PSU isn't enough for 3 Titans at 1.3V and a 3930K at 1.5V Plus 2 of my Titans are dogs :(

Something to think about anyways and it would proably be an impulse buy if I did go for it but new PSU/Mobo/CPU and RAm is a price I am not overly happy to pay at present.

I have a few spare PSUs that you can borrow if you like. Just let me know and arrange the shipping via a UPS access point (cheapest option) for heavy stuff.

The 1200W BeQuite unit is quite heavy.

I do have 2 750W spares and appreciate the offer thanks :) Gaming has gripped me again since getting the ROG Swift in truth and made me very lazy on benching.

Had a brief moment of wanting to get rid of my gaming PC, as I'm using the PS4 for gaming, but had a chance to sit down and play BF4 and Borderlands Pre sequel on my PC and realize that superior master race is where it's at :D Thinking should get a few years out of this mobo / CPU. Awesome setup, using latest bios 'F9g'. 24/7 clock is 4.4Ghz. 4.6Ghz for benching.

Looking forward to Far Cry 4 and Assassin's Creed unity on PC.

Borderlands is awful.

The whole Australian and space thing really doesn't bode well with me and I am already bored with it, and that's in co op with my lady. I think we'll just go back to BL2 for the time being. Iv'e completed it but she's loving it.

Asus WS X99 board has a PLX chip onboard actually :)

I've never noticed any difference running PCI-E 3.0 x8 vs x16. The bandwidth you get with x8 is good enough for any GPU that is currently on the market.

Don't forget that PCI-E 3.0 X8 has the same bandwith as PCI-E 2.0 X16.

The PCIE is fine (still wouldn't work for me running five instances of OGL though) but ram is still screwing it.
