    “Its upgraded power circuitry and single 8-pin power connection makes it the most efficient card here. Its cooler is big, but it's also whisper quiet and has the ability to turn its fans off altogether, even when running light games, and there's no hint of power noise either.”

    Must have

    “The Asus GTX970 Strix OC is extremely quiet and cool running. Loads of overclocking headroom to deliver AMD R9 290X beating frame rates.” “The Asus Strix cooler pairs up well on the technically more advanced GM204 Maxwell core incorporated into the GTX970, although the fans do spin when the solution is powering a game. Fortunately they do spin slowly and noise levels are never a concern – in fact this is one of the quietest high performance graphics card we have ever tested.”

    X99-DELUXE

    Premium grade

    "There's quite a bit to take in here not just in terms of price and value but in performance terms too. Money being no object, Asus has come up with the goods in spectacular fashion with the X99 Deluxe. It looks fantastic, comes with a mass of useful features and will provide a perfect home for multi-GPU systems too. Its price is a high one, but it certainly feels like it's worth the extra over the other boards on test."

    Gold award

    Boards that would fall in this segment are the ASUS X99 Deluxe, MSI X99 Gaming 9 AX and Gigabyte X99 Gaming G1. The ASUS X99 Deluxe is our favorite out of these three, especially if gaming is not the main focus of your setup. |This board does have all the functionality you would wish for, enough USB ports, storage options, audio, WiFi, bundled extra's, and last but not least top notch performance make it a perfect board. Buy a nice white case and you can build a top PC with this combination.

    Yes, it's like any quality product in that you get what you pay for, so you have to pay a little more for the many MANY features of the Rampage V Extreme, but given how expensive the i7-5960X is it would be churlish to berate it for price. The King is dead, long live the King, and he gets crowned with our OC3D Gold Award. more
