  Topic: DDR4 Question
So I'm looking to purchase this motherboard and it says it has a max ram speed of DDR4 3466*(*O.C.). I want to run the fastest ram possible this board will support and was wondering if I were to purchase a 4000MHz kit if I were to underclock it to run at 3466 frequency with tighter timings would it be better performance vs buying a 3400MHz or 3466MHz ram kit?

If a motherboard says 3466* O.C. will it easily run a module already rated at that frequency?

I think after doing some more research and from what you guys are saying I will go with the i7-6700k. Hands down best single core performance and I will mostly be using the machine for gaming anyway. This will be pretty nice coming from this Dell OptiPlex 780 SFF I've been using. It's pretty awesome for it's time though (= Unfortunately my ssd drives are much slower due to the sata2 interface.

Blazinf fast UFS cards 

So what about the same idea but with these UFS storage cards? Maybe to a m.2 interface or pci-e?

Thanks for the response. I just picked up a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 for $10 and I'm happy with it.
Nobody has this board or know anyone who does? lol
Here is the motherboard. I want to do 4k gaming, video editing, multi-tasking, and a enjoy overclocking and pushing for high benchmarks. So as far as I can tell this is the mother of all dual socket LGA 2011 motherboards and you can overclock with it too. Beats the 6700k is most benchmarks that I've compared.

Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz

Passmark 11535 Single

Passmark 17325 Dual CPU

Cinebench 2190

POV-RAY 653 (Single-threaded higher clock speeds will generate higher scores with this benchmark, so a dual CPU system does not help this benchmark much.)

As far as gaming goes this can do 4x SLI and I'm wondering if 4x GTX 1080 would even cause a bottleneck for this dual xeon setup. I'm not exactly willing to spend that much on graphics cards, but maybe 2 GTX 1070's, RX 480's, or GTX 1060's when they come out.

I have a dual cpu motherboard (LGA 2011) that's been in my storage for awhile and I've been itching to build a new machine. My question is should I upgrade to skylake or go with the dual xeon setup. What would be a better option? Here are is what I am thinking.

Intel Xeon E5-2660 @ 2.20GHz [dual cpu]

TDP = 95W, x2 = 190W

# cores 16 (2x8)

# thread 32 (2x16)

MAX Memory Size = 384 GB DDR3 1600

Max memory bandwidth per cpu = 51.2 GB/s (102.4GB/s)

PCI Express lanes = 40

Passmark score = 17,325

COST = $333.20

Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz

TDP = 91W

# cores 4

# thread 8

MAX Memory Size = 64 GB DDR4-1866/2133, DDR3L-1333/1600 @ 1.35V

Max memory bandwidth per cpu = 34.1 GB/s (102.4GB/s)

PCI Express lanes = 16

Passmark score = 11,001

COST = $350

The dual cpu setup scored almost same as the newer Intel Core i7-6900K @ 3.20GHz (priced at $1100) and for much cheaper. You don't get built in gpu, older architecture, less instruction sets, doesn't support DDR4, and higher TDP when running dual cpu. But if plan don't plan on upgrading for awhile and would like to run SLI + great multitasking performance the Xeon seems like a no brainer when it comes to effective cost/performance unless I am missing something?

I have an older motherboard Gigabyte GA 7N400 Pro2  and I've noticed all of these socket 462 motherboards will have 4 DIMMS but only support 3GB max of memory. So what exactly is the point? I guess you could populate all slots by using 2x1GB sticks and 2x512MB sticks. Just seems odd to me. Is 3GB the max amount of memory a socket 462 cpu will handle?
I've had good results with EASEUS Data Recovery. Not sure about the other ones mentioned though. You could try them all and let us know what worked best.
These would be nice if you have a bunch of sd cards laying around though not very fast unless...

I can't find one of these that support UHC-II let alone UHC-I but if they could support it considering the fastest sd cards are around 250-300MB/s, though expensive it would still be cheaper and more power efficient than the top storage enterprise solutions out there currently. The only issue being they would be in a raid without parity and the max bandwidth of sata3 is only about 750MB/s. I know it's not a very practical idea, but still interesting imo. Anyone have experience with these devices?
