    How many of us have all the power connectors pluged in the Rampage?

    This is my first day with my Rampage IV Extreme, (last board was a gigabyte) and seeing as it has tons of power connectors to the mother board. Manual says additional power to PCI express lanes, and Stable power for Ram, and a few more power connectors here and there that I connected them all to (since in in 3 way SLI and using 4 x 4 Dominator GT 2133 I thought why not plug in every last one cause i have the power, which is why my case wires is now messy and need to figure out how to clean it up lol)
    But yea my question is how many of you connected every connection from your power supply to the board on the Rampage Extreme IV asks for?, I think its like 5 connections if I'm not mistaken.

    I have always been of the mind if I have the connectors on my PSU then populate the board.

    So yeah I have them all connected. But then I OC quite a bit...

    Dunno about the Maximus, but on my CHV-F I had an OC at 4055mhz with only the 8 pin connector, and when I upgraded my PSU, I could the plug in the 4 pin connector as well, and without changing anything in the bios, my OC jumped to 4165mhz (110mhz is not a great deal, but shows that the extra plugs do help)

    The rule of thumb is if your PSU has all the necessary connectors, them connect them all. There is no harm in doing so.

    Ya luckily my Silent Pro 1200 does have all the connectors to plug into the Rampage so I did, now I just gotta deal with cleaning up the cabling cause theres a lot more to clean up on a rampage than any other board lol

    Just the 8pin and 4pin molex here. Unless i use an adapter i can't connect anything to the 4pin ATX unless i ditch sli as my psu will only do one or the other. I've not had any problems though.

    Edit: Sorry wrong board
