that right there is a total bummer! I was seriously considering defecting to Giga a couple months back... after taking their factory "how a motherboard is made" tour on youtube, which was filmed in Taiwan???

seems the good ol Pegatron boys are still at it in Taiwan pumping out those ASRock boards... seems no matter the manufacturer the matx's have less issues? or there are just not as many of them out there...?

I am having a hard time still swallowing that my ROG board is now made by the same company who pumps out $29.95 boards lol, I wish Asus never left Pegatron, the manufacturing wing they created to produce their mobo's in house. The ROG is clearly the x79 winner though so...

if an IB-E will provide more performance throughput at a lower vcore and Ghz, then higher numbers mean absolutely squat err...

seems I have a tad of buyers remorse again... somehow I can;t wait till the memory speed days are behind us, the days of 2 and 3 of the same motherboards with different FSB speeds are.

seems the memory bus can still be tweaked to diddy out a little more by the manufacturers and it warrants a whole new board... christ!


Taiwan quality is closer to actual Japanese quality than China will ever be... even if they advertise Japanese quality caps and resistors on board... it is known consumers respond to that, but we are not getting Japanese quality manufacturing.

When Japan stopped their output, they moved it all to Taiwan... built the factories and sent engineers and trained the workers... That is why it is superior there imo.

by 2015/2016 though the cost of manufacturing in China will catch up with the rest of the westernized world, the only thing that will still be appealing to the corp's will be the laxed or non existent environmental laws in China.

some companies are seeing the demise early and are setting up manufacturing and assembling in the USA... Lenovo (a Chinese company) has moved a manufacturing wing to North Carolina, they are producing the products they are assembling there.

Great input, the RIVE Black was released at IDF and may send it back. They mention it is optimized for 8 dimms, should I send the GSkill 4x8GB dimms back or get 4 more? What are your thoughts I am using:

Dear Oxford English Dictionary, instead of wasting time adding ‘twerking’, once you see this you’ll want to redefine epic instead! Check the spec and engineering pride below and you’ll understand that the new Rampage IV Black Edition is the ultimate LGA2011 motherboard, and the ideal companion for a new Ivy Bridge-E (4th Generation LGA2011) CPU.

Rampage-IV-Black-Edition-1

Though not to be confused with the previous (non-real product) Rampage IV Extreme in black, the official Rampage IV Black Edition is a whole new product you can buy with a full stack of 2013 ROG innovations:

Ivy Bridge-E optimized design
The only ROG with an all-black color-scheme.
SupremeFX Formula [2013] with WIMA and ELNA capacitors, OpAmp headphone amplifier and 120dB SNR.
Sonic Radar software
Extreme Engine DIGI+ III (VRM design)
802.11ac Wi-Fi
12 SATA [8 SATA 6Gbps]
8 USB 3.0
