Yes, it does. See KM's known-to-work X58 MB list: http://www.overclock-and-game.com/hardware/computer-tech-reviews/28-x5660-review?showall=&start=9

I have a Rampage3 Gene with a x5660 and it works fine.
Just update the BIOS to the newest one.

Just in passing; don't forget, everyone, that a reseat can often fix inexplicable problems smile.gif I have to keep turning my machine on its front to pick up a weak-ass wifi signal and something (I think an eSATA cable, or my PCIE extender) was a smidgen lose. Having fixed that my bizarre BSODs have pushed off and I dropped core and uncore volts @stable too!

To be honest, that delay @boot and the necessity to thump it occasionally should have warned me!

A bit of a tight fit, especially the smooshed SATA cables. There's 3HDD's hiding in the 5.25 bays.



...the pizza box is helping, just a couple of dB and C smile.gif

Same here, ok not really. I plan on keeping my Fury X throughout 2016 well into 2017, unless I find someone to sell it to. I am keeping my eye on the latest cards from the big two.

There are new DirectX 12 benchmarks out though:

DX11 vs DX12 - 1080p

DX11 vs DX12 4K
http://www.nordichardware.se/images/labswedish/artiklar/Grafik/Ashes_prestandaanalys/largethumbnails/ashes_2160_dx11_vs_dx12_2.png


@1080p -DX11 to DX12- Fury X gets a crazy 113.60% Frame Rate increase!
@4K -DX11 to DX12- Fury X gets a crazy 59.80% Frame Rate increase.

Nvidia only got a roughly a 3% increase.

Yeah it's definitely time to leave DX11 and move onto DX12 which allows more data to be processed quicker. Nvidia hardware is built around DX11 serial type of data delivery for sure. AMD hardware is better tasked for concurrent data throughput. Now I see why Nvidia was basically trying to stay away from async shaders in their "do's and don't" blog\PDF write up and the benchmarks.

DX12\Vulkan is needed for the future advancement of PC gaming and VR. AMD is still making great process with the restrictive DX11 API though in the Hitman Beta DX11 [Hitman will be DX12 when it releases]

GTX 970 vs R9 390 FPS Test - DX11
