What is the status of your RMA for your RIV BE? Is Asus going to get you some other comparable X79 mobo to replace the RIV BE if they are not going to have any available for warranty replacement?
I still have it. I do not want to wait while they poke and prod and figure out how to fix it. I will deal with the minor issues I have for now.

Ah, OK. I will tip toe through my CPU upgrade and make sure nothing gets derped. I do not want to wait indefinately on Asus, running my second string rig. It has its own particularities that get annoying very quick like for me when I game with it. This motherboard has been fabulous *knocks on wooden desk* , but I did not get mine until Oct. 2014 and I wondered if Asus would actually have warranty replacement mobo's until Q3 or Q4 of 2017. I guess I will not go completely nuts OCing the CPU when I upgrade to a hexa-core here shortly. Eh, games have not shown much if any noticeable improvement past 4.5 giggles for at least a couple of years now IMO. With a hexa I see this rig lasting me through PS5 and XBthree, that is if I do not DA it up some how.

Now I remember reading that some sli configurations were bottlenecking x79 CPUs. I think Jayz2cents said it. Did the new sli bridges take some of that load off of the CPUs?

Jayz2Cent rolleyes.gif lol . To answer, no this is not the case at all.

Real short version: ALL modern desktop/workstation class chipsets EXCEPT X79 and X99 are extremely limited when it comes to PCI-e lanes (16 PCI-e lanes.. 20 total with 4 you cannot use without M.2). HOWEVER, people run 2xSLI on these chipsets without an issue... it's not a bottleneck really even on these chipsets (example: Z170). It's been proven.. unless you try to run other PCI-e cards with 2xSLI then you can run into the issues.

The X79 and X99 on the other hand offer MORE PCI-e lanes (40 of them, basically double)... so if there's ANY chipset that's going to be running out of PCI-e bandwidth it's not going to be X79 or X99 unless you're running an insane 4xGPU SLI + Mega RAID array on a PCI-e controller...and X99 would suffer the same fate. In fact, even the older PCI-e 2.0 16x is more than sufficient to handle the data any modern GPU needs to pass. The GPU renders and displays the image.. most of the work is done on the GPU with it's own frame buffers so there's really not a lot of data going across PCI-e (textures are loaded and swapped a lot).

As far as the new SLI bridge, there's really nothing special going on with those bridges AFAIK. Here's the key points: The new HB SLI bridge is only needed at 5K+ or surround (all res!?).


When you do use the configurations where the extra bandwidth is used (as described in pic above) I believe your GPUs are simply using all "4 SLI fingers" for 2-way SLI instead of the "2 SLI fingers" used for 2-way SLI now. Makes you understand why they cannot support 3-way and 4-way anymore since they decided to use all 4 SLI fingers for only 2 GPUs..


I believe there is zero difference using the new SLI bridge compared to the old ones UNLESS you are using 5K or surround where that bandwidth could even be generated/utilized.

I traded my Evga 980Ti SC for a Asus Titan X as I game on a Gsync monitor I didn't need the performance it had I love my Titan X I'll pass it to my Render Rig when a worthy HBM 2 card comes out.

Well you traded up not down!!!

Was told otherwise by alot of ppl but I have a plan for it. Plus I hope to turn my Rive 4 Be into a server once xpoint find become available can the rive 4 be take a xeon think I'll go all out and even get a 64gb set for ram drive. Host my ark server off that and the 4960x or a hex core Xeon if they aren't in the $$$$$$$ range by then.

Titan X is actually faster clock to clock having more CUDA Cores and Texture Units, but 980TI often seems to overclock higher and thus be a little faster.

Nice then there's no buyers remorse I plan on putting it in my HTPC for backing up my blue ray collection. And soon ultra blue ray once drives come outa capable of that.

Hey all


Is anyone having strange USB issues with Windows 10 ?


When I connect my Galaxy Tab 12.2 and try copy files across, it disconnects all my USB devices and reconnects them and I have to wait a second before my KB+M and my Ext. HDDs are connected again

That is odd. I had (may still have) issues with USB 2.0 devices not starting up with windows when they are plugged into a USB 3.0 port but it is nothing like your issue.
