Thanks to Uncle Mac, decided bbbmtl and hooted this first hoot from Newegg.Sg!
...

Tiagong...
btw bml, you tiagong this and that from dunno where... wonder if this is gonna be the 1st time you tiagong from right down here.

For Asus X99 mobos with their patent pending OC Socket - when o'cing the cache/uncore to 4GHz+ speed, you simply key in your desired numbers in the BIOS to get this.




For any other brands/models retailing in the market, to get the same cache speed you've got to do all this!

Der8auer's Guide for Haswell-E 4GHz+ Uncore (For All Motherboards) - hwbot.org



Enjoy

Aiming for the Asus X99-S! It is a Deluxe for those no need the wifi and all that jazz. Can save few hundreds go towards the DDR4.

Dont know when BL bring in, if too late maybe hoot the RVE or SOC-Force. Since the Deluxe price so high, may as well a bite more/less and get RVE or the Giga, both EATX OC models

Tiagong Deluxe may have a batch problem or what siol!

More reported cases of Deluxe and Corsair PSU killing mobo + chip

Also seem the Newegg.SG raised price of the Crucial rams! Still slighty cheaper than SLS, lucky i hoot first for under $300. Using DHL!

Sigh..more reports of the Deluxe board failing even when paired with different PSUs.
Hopefully Asus will find the problem and issue a new revision soon.

Personally, I would forgo any potential headache and simply just get the RVE

relatively small price difference
Asus richer BIOS/forum support, totally skewed towards ROG mobos
lots more forum o'cing info sharing
better track history so far


For example, it's way much tougher finding others sharing o'cing info on my test mobo, the X99-A, so it's pretty much a lonely solo exploration with all the knocks and bruises.

Maybe I'll wait for the X99-Pro.
With just a single LAN and missing Asmedia SATA controller compared to the Deluxe, it should be a cheaper board.
Good thing is it still has dual m.2 sockets which I require.

Thumbs down

Wah i read the update logs damn scary siol! Like Asus know got some problems but trying to stall and stall...dont even know if the RVE is safe since the design platform is similar to Deluxe...

Our own Simon bro also tio Deluxe killed his 5960X AND BL own 5960X...double take down, some more his shown as pre-production board? SMLJ

We should forward this to Legitreview and add more international pressure to Asus!

You know of any R5E cases so far?

Agree that Asus HQ could have done a better job at managing the situation but afaik, R5E has a clean record till now. Quite a few suspect the Deluxe mobo got shorted due to aberrant solder balls.

X99-A also so far so good.

Anyway, whichever mobo you end up buying, it is best to remove all heatsinks and do a thorough check for such solder spills like what I have done (photos posted earlier).

There have been a few recorded cases of solder spills which can potentially cause shorts even in recent models of other brands too.

Someone posted this in xs
2 z97x-gaming gt boards from newegg, is this normal?


Check out the multiple long trails of extra solder in his album... one example




So look before you power on...

Dear bemylove,

The X99-S will be here soon, we are keeping the price more competitive with other brands.

Aiyo. There are no cases yet in Singapore. Maybe user or some user configuration problem you also do not know.

So let give the ASUS US service team to resolve them. Also, since when we didn’t help you to solve your problem with component?

We are here for a reason. Hee!

Best regard,
JK

Does Asus physically run each board thru a burn-in period before shipping out?

From what I known, only Deluxe kenna, no known complaints from RVE + 5960X combo with AX1200i PSU.

Although I am shivering - but so far, mine is able to recover from failed oc. I suspend my further oc efforts till further notice
