[Official] Asus Rampage IV Black Edition Owners Club! - Page 1378

post #13771 of 14918
I am joining this club after putting the motherboard through tests before finally replacing my X58A-UD7/X5690 with the E5-2670/Rampage IV Black Edition combo. Proof attached below.



I have also passed on the X99 chipset for the time being due to the relatively new platform age and the chipsets quirks that still have yet to be ironed out. The Rampage IV Black Edition and the E5 2670 offer a great performance combination that is just as good as the 5960X (with the downside of limited overclocking on the 2670).

I am still trying to get used to this motherboard and the various bios options available and from being away from UEFI for so long.

I have been thinking of upgrading my CPU because I have a sub par 4930k with a max OC of 4.3 ghz (there are a few discussions on this very thread about this chip). I have been running it day and night at 4.3 ghz with no issues but it will not run for more than 5 mins or so under any circumstances at 4.4ghz. Well TBH it is currently at stock speeds because I had to F5 it and have not gone in and set my OC back yet. I have not noticed any difference in performance yet though so no biggie for now.

I believe my RIVBE is starting to go because so far I have at least one confirmed dead onboard fan controller and possibly a second one has died. Between that and the max OC for my chip I am thinking of going X99 because spending more than a couple hundred on this old socket does not seem worth it.

Note that I have an RMA for this board but I have to send it in for their techs to look at it with no temps replacement boards because they have none in stock and will not be getting any more.



I see.  Have you considered using the Intel Precision Tuning Replacement Plan to replace the chip?  If your current one is max'ed out at 4.3, it can't hurt to try your luck with a replacement chip.  You can't do worse in the silicon lottery than 4.3, you can only get one that might be better.

Anyway, good luck with it - I know you've had issues with your build for quite some time already, I hope you get it all straightened out and working like you want it to soon!

Welcome :)  It's not super-active around here these days, but do let us know if you run into any problems or have any questions.  I think we have a few folks here who are using the Xeon/RIVBE combo, so they'll be glad to have another on board. :)

Yes actually I already have the intel tuning plan and was planning on doing that. But The only back up CPU I have is an E5 2670, which is limited to OCing through the base clock or which at best I may reach 3 ghz..... I am still thinking of sending it in but I just do not want to wait that long for the replacement to get back to me.....

Glad to be in this club. I am really liking what LGA2011 offers versus my previous LGA1366 setup especially with the onboard USB3 header (no need for a seperate card to use my Haf X USB3 header). I am hoping that when the prices further drop for the V2 Xeons that I can pick them up say months or even a year from now. A 2.8Ghz or 3Ghz 10c/20t 2680 v2 or 2690 v2 is a very enticing future upgrade. In the meantime after playing Dying Light I haven't really noticed a huge difference in gaming performance versus my previous X5690 configuration.

That is a bit expensive for a used EK block.
I already have one that someone on here sent me for free.

BNIB/sealed means never used.

Has anyone upgraded to the new GTX 1080s with this board yet? Hoping that the the 1080ti version is on the way toward the end of the year.
