    Same.

    Though I am disappointed with the lack of SATA and USB connectors. In addition to gaming I use the amped up board as kind of a central hub for my digital life. Fortunately my Rampage V is...

    To be fair I tried both ways.

    My next step was to start adjusting the settings. However, after the mess with the thermal paste I was not 100% sure that the CPUs themselves was not messed up. I...

    Funny thing is that this whole cavalcade of issues i am having is really Intel's fault. I usually build one, test, and leave it that way. In this case I bought the 7th gen board and a 7th gen i7 and...
