    Slik FX8150 bundle

    Hi

    Just tried to email philipp@scan.co.uk as suggested with queries but got an NDR

    Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

    phillipp@scan.co.uk

    Technical details of permanent failure:
    Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 5.1.1 <phillipp@scan.co.uk>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in relay recipient table (state 14).

    Anyhoo - looking at http://3xs.scan.co.uk/ShowSystem.asp?SystemID=1331 as the core of my next PC, which will be used pretty heavily as a VMWare workstation, but also for some gaming. As it's going to be used for virtualisation I'd like to max the RAM out, but the most you offer through the site is 16Gb. Is there the possibility to buy with 32Gb of RAM? And if so... would I be able to buy it on credit if needs be?

    if the amount of RAM is likely to pose a problem with the overclock (which I suspect is the case) I can live with stock speeds, but I need more than 16Gb really.

    Thanks,

    Kev

    Any word on this? I'll likely be looking to purchase in the next 2 weeks and it'd be nice to spend the money with Scan...

    Re: Slik FX8150 bundle

    Hi

    No response as yet (not a problem, I won't be in a position to make a purchase until Friday anyways), but looking at the QVL list off the Asus website they don't actual certify *any* RAM for 32Gib on this board. Is it possible for you guys to do some testing to confirm?

    Thanks,

    Kev

    Hello Splash,

    I forwarded your mail onto our sales team who will be preparing a quote as requested, sorry this is taking slightly longer than expected.

    I will get on with some testing now with 32Gb and come back to you shortly

    Best Regards

    Hi Splash

    With the standard spec but changing the RAM to the LN 42535 -

    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/32gb-...10-10-10-27-xm

    The total would be £ 700.98 Inc VAT.

    Just waiting to here from Philipp to ensure the memory is fully compatible.

    Best Regards

    Re: Slik FX8150 bundle

    Hello Splash...

    Some good and not so good news.... the board is happy to accept 32GB of memory, we used 2x the below;

    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb-...1-11-11-30-15v

    We are happy to retest with the memory you have mentioned once it comes into stock.

    We tested the bundle clocked at 4.6Ghz last night and unfortunately it dropped some cores in prime... we have lowered the OC to 4.5Ghz and currently retesting.

    Re: Slik FX8150 bundle

    This is good stuff - I'm not overly fussed about which memory, nor the overclock to be honest: so long as it's stable.

    Not sure if you want to carry this on from here, or if you'd prefer to take it to email? If the latter could you know me an official quote up for the bundle (is it possible to use the newer Thunderbolt variant of the board btw?) with 32Gb of that RAM, an 8150 and the H80 cooler?

    Thanks,

    Kev

    Hi Splash

    I don't think we have the Thunderbolt variant of the ASUS Motherboard, I'm fairly sure this would be released under a new SKU, but let me check and I will e-mail you along with the quotation shortly.

    Re: Slik FX8150 bundle

    Chris

    The Thunderbolt version is listed as LN41251, with the standard version as LN39764. Both are the same price.

    Hopefully both boards are pretty much the same, just the extra card in the newer unit.

    EDIT - just checked my email and got the quote - thanks Chris
