    Names' Alan Kelly just recently picked up a used ROG at a local pawn shop. I can honestly say I like it way better than the Alienware MX14 .

    Hello. Finally joined the the ROG. I have been a mainstream ASUS board user for a long time, with the release of x99, I decided it was time to see what the rampage fuss was all about.

    Hi everyone! New to the forums, but not ROG. I've been using ASUS boards for awhile... My first , and a couple years ago I was given a ROG G73J laptop by a friend who thought it was bad... Sometimes it worked, then sometimes it would take about 30 minutes to just boot up and shut down (no joke). So I dusted it out and booted it up... worked ok, but a week or so later it started doing the same thing to me. I noticed an odd sound when it did it though... Turns out the HDD bearing was going out. I'd had a drive that did that before so I knew the sound. Replaced that and it was good as new. My wife took over that laptop not too long after, and she loves it. Anyways I just put together my new gaming computer and I decided on the ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z board since based on what I've read, it runs the coolest of the AM3+ boards I've had such a good experience with the laptop. I'm kinda an AMD loyalist so I went with them even though they aren't doing as well these days. Full system is:
    Case - XION XON-980-BK
    MB - ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z
    CPU - AMD FX-8350 BE
    Cooler - Corsair h105 AIO liquid cooler
    RAM - 2X8GB G.Skill C7 1600Mhz DDR3
    Video Card - Sapphire Radeon R9 290x
    SSD - Sandisk Ultra II 240GB
    HDD - WD 1TB 7200RPM **
    ODD - Samsung SH-S203B DVDRW **
    Power Supply - Viotek 700w **
    ** Transferred from my old computer

    So far it seems like my CPU doesn't want to run stable over 5Ghz... I can go up to 4.9Ghz at 1.3875v fine, but 5.0 won't run stable at 1.45v... After going that high I figured that was probably all it would give me so I didn't try any higher voltages... I tried pure multiplier OC and different bus and multiplier combinations and no dice. The USB ports stopped working at 240Mhz bus but I tried in 5Mhz steps up to that.

    Hi guys, I'm Christiaan. Currently working in graphic design and internal IT Tech. I worked with my brother for a year and half also in IT, its my thing hahaha. I have no degrees in anything, I just learn myself and its working good for me. I will most likely have to go do studies just to get the degrees. Anyway, I also wanna add that I love ASUS. I bought the P8H77-M in the beginning of this year and its somply a dream. I know its not an official ROG Product, but I didn't have the moneyfor that and the company I bought it from was all out on ASUS eccept that one. Atleast its got SLI and 4x DIMM. My rig at this stage is: i3 3.34gHz (will upgrade that this year), 8 GB RAM, Inno3D Nvidia GTX 650ti 1024mb, 3TB HDD and P8H77-M Mobo and Prestigio 22" VGA running at 1680x1050 resolution on all games. I can run any game between HIGH and ULTRA graphics settings including Watch_Dogs, ACC Black Flag and many more new game titles. Tell me what you think

    Can't go wrong with AMD bro, they are pure gaming. But I stick to Intel iCores... Runs cool, no extra cooling needed (only for looks haha). And I do not struggle with gaming on just my 2nd Gen i3 3.34gHZ. But I'm bound to upgrade to 3rd Gen i7... Thank goodness my mobo supports it, i7 will go great with my GTX 650ti (and with that I also did not make a mistake... Brilliant GPU)

    Hi All, Bruce Meisinger for Omaha Ne.

    Worked in a bank setting up PCs, starting with the dual 5 1/4 " floppy machines! Just putting together a new home machine, Asus M5A99FX pro R2.0 motherboard, FX8320 CPU,GT 740 sc video card, and 2 Adata 4gig ddr3 2400 memory. Everything Seems to work, but I get a 5.5 for memory on the windows Experience Index using windows 7 ultimate, everything else 7+, started with a pair of ddr3 1600, 2-2gig sticks, same 5.5 value... no other test shows any errors except possibly MaxxMem2 has a low memory-write, around 5k. ...I'm sure I have stuck this in the wrong place, but couldn't find a thread to put it on. Any Help??? Thanks, Bruce

    Hello my actual name is John and I am a health professional and belong to other forums notably the Sevens Eight and Nine forums. I am reasonably
    literate and do computing as a hobby come retirement activity although I have been interested in electronics in general all my life.
    I have done a few builds and use Asus boards and GPU's and sound cards in my three desktops and I also have two laptops with one desktop and
    one laptop running Windows 8 in 7 style the other machines are all running Windows 7.
    Now I am up for a new laptop and thought I would have a look around in here to improve my knowledge of gaming and what graphics are all about because at the moment it is all a bit of a mystery. So I am going to post a thread re the G (ROG) series of laptops that I am contemplating for th
    new laptop.

    Well, first of all hello everyone, I recently bought my first ROG laptop and started to look on this board and has some nice info, I'm a System Engineer and also like gaming(for both reasons I needed a decent specs laptop), I bought a G550JK because of this(well, it has really nice specs for the price) and look great in my opinion.

    I hope to be active on this board and learn a little from the posts here
