Is there any difference with regard to overclocking/stability between 0701 and 0801 or were the changes only to support the larger memory capacity (anyone notice a difference?

I have been told the only difference was the support for the larger memory capacity, otherwise ECC memory I believe.

The 0701 bios I have is just modded for the newer raid from and Intel RST raid support. I'm thinking if this board still the original never rma it once since bought I'll have to frame it in some weird lian like case.
it has been the best rig is built and still killing it for any game I play.

Only thing I need to get really is a nice nvme Intel 750 800gb pcie drive as boot my 840's are getting rather long in the tooth I can transfer those over for my ark server for save states.

Ty for that tidbit I'll try it on my other bios the only change I wanted would be the raid from updated on original bios. I had my CPU hitting 5ghz stable until I buggered with bios's stress tested with Crisis 3 and Intel burn test lol.

Hey there!

I need some advice!

Would you still buy this motherboard or do you recommend X99? I can get a used RIVBE with a few months of warranty left for 260,- Euro (~$ 290). Do you think, this is a bargain? Is it worth investing that amount of money into an aging platform?

I already own an i7 3930k but it is no problem to sell this puppy.

Additionally I have a couple of questions:

1. Do I need to plug in both the 8 pin and the 4 pin ATX connectors? I read in the Rampage forum that just plugging in the 8 pin ATX will be sufficient. My PSU unfortunately has just one 8 pin ATX and no additional 4 pin connector.

2. Is a 500W PSU in combination with a GTX 1070 enough?

3. I am using a Thermalright Macho HR-02 Rev. 1 as CPU cooler on my i7 2600 (1155 socket). Will this fit the 2011 socket? Or do I need accessory parts? Is zip-tying a temporary solution?

4. Is the board fully compliant to Win10? If not, what is not working?

Thanks a lot in advance, your help ist really appreciated! I am very new to this platform.

@Fliwatuet

Board for $290 usd is kind of a little too much money, but it's not outrageous. Helps to own the cpu already.

Just need the 8pin cpu plug, 4 pin is needed for heavy bench sessions using extreme cooling.

500w is more than enough as long as the power supply is a good one.

The cpu cooler, no idea.

I'm running Windows 10 on my R4BE, no issues what so ever.

Thanks MrTOOSHORT!

Highend hardware is expensive over here in Europe. In Belgium I have to pay 21% VAT/GST when I buy new stuff :-( My PSU is a Be Quiet Straight Power 10, I consider this a good one.

I'm not sure if I should go for X79 or for new hardware like X99 or Z170. I do not have any M.2 oder USB 3.1 devices, but maybe in the future? And what about durability of the board? Will it survive the next 2-3 years? Or should I wait for Zen? Damn.

Z170 is tough for me to recommend because of the whole PCI-e lane BS limitations.

IMO x99 is more problematic (heard some nightmare stories about some mid-range boards) and unless you need DDR4 (nobody NEEDS DDR4) and some other bells and whistles you said you wouldn't need.. Broadwell-E is not all that much faster core for core. It comes down to number of cores. If you want more than 6 cores you'll need to go with x99 unless you get an E5-1680v2 (8 cores and expensive) but above 8 cores you MUST go to x99.

I was faced with the same decision and I went with x79 RIVBE because it's one of the best boards you can buy... I went with an E5-1650v2 because it was relatively cheap and it's an unlocked chip so it's really more about what YOU need and use the PC for to be able to answer the question. I'm primarily a gamer and 6 cores is more than enough for anything.

I contacted Asus about my issues and it seems they want me to start an RMA. I currently do not have a standby system if I send this in. They also do not have any RIVBE boards in stock so I would have to send it in without them sending me a replacement. My options right now are to see if there is a board cheap enough for me to consider and try and get Asus to send me a different X79 board as a temporary replacement.

What do you all recommend as a possible temporary replacement for my RIVBE while it is being serviced?

Also, If someone can find me a price on a decent x79 board for about $200 that would be awesome. So far I have not been able to find anything that inexpensive.

Thanks in advance!

Currently the latest version of AI suite 3 is only available for this board up to Windows 8.1. I was given the link by an ASUS tech to it to see if it would work with my Windows 10 64 bit OS.

The reason I am asking is the latest version of AI suite 3 has a couple more features that I plan on using along with updated versions of the software included like the USB 3.0 boost.


Does the AI suite 3 version for 8.1 work fine with Windows 10?

yes it works fine. but i still cannot control the optional fan headers

I discovered that my max OC (when it works) is 4.3 ghz with or without AI suite and it is stable for me. I like AI suite because of the monitoring and the extra features it has. I seriously think it is windows 10 as I know of a few people who were using bclk skew and it would not work in windows 10, meaning any changes they made in the bios with skew did not show up when booted up in windows. I am not using bclk skew but it is a good indication..

FYI you can always clear your CMOS and go back to the bios your MB was shipped with and then download the 0701 (or the 0801 if you prefer) and go from there. If you do decide to clear your cmos to reset your bios do not use the clear cmos button on the I/O board slots. Using that button apparently really drains your battery. That is from an Asus tech.

I a still on 0403. I run at 4.6 ghz wo probs. 32 gig ram. 4930k.

Is there any functionality the newer bioses add?
