I'm currently running a Sabertooth X99 and thinking about moving to a R5E. I had a Rampge IV Black Ed. before my move to X99. See my sig for a complete hardware list. What are you guys seeing as far as OC performance and stability with the latest BIOS (1902 from what I can tell after reading this forum)?

Hmm.. after searching Asus's site, there's a U3.1 version of this board and the standard one. U3.1 has a lower BIOS version. Are these not the same board + an addon card? What's the better one of these two for stability and OCing?

I need to be able to run my Samsung 950 Pro NVMe on it at PCIe x4 as well as 2 EVGA 980Tis in x16 SLI . Any issues with either? Anything I should be aware of that wouldn't be obvious to a non-owner?

Thanks.

performance should be the same on both Rampage V versions... IMHO, stick with the Sabertooth x99 as it is a REALLY sturdy motherboard...

with the sabertooth, you should be able to run sli x16-x16 and x4 on the 950pro... remember that the pci-e lanes mostly depends on the cpu... in your case, you have a 5930k, so you should not worry with it...

Thanks for that. I am able to run all my devices as I'd like - just making sure that the Rampage doesn't have some odd limitation that I wouldn't expect.

The reason I'm looking at the Rampage is overclocking and memory stability. The Sabertooth is making me jump through more hoops than I'd like in getting my DDR4-3000 kit to actually run at 3000 and was being more of a pain to OC than I remember my Rampage IV being. Just looking at other options..

fo the reviews that i have seen, the sabertooth is on par with the rampage... the rampage has a few pluses, like the audio, and some other stuff (maybe the front panel connector and maybe a couple of other stuff) but on a general perspective, it will be kind of a sidegrade...

maybe your ram kit is the problem after all... have you pumped more voltage to the rams? maybe they are hynix (AFAIK, hynix does not perform as well as samsung on ddr4... IF IM MISTAKEN, PLEASE CLARIFY)

Not sure if the G.Skill kit uses Hynix but the kit is on ASUS's QVL for the Sabertooth so I'd think that's as good as it gets. I did get the memory working with some voltage tweaks but based on XMP alone (and the correct ram voltage) they would not post. In any case, now that I have it working, the R5E is less of an immediate need but that said, I already had a friend offer to buy the Sabertooth so if enough people here say good things about the R5E I may just get one. So far, by the way, 2 people. Not exactly a rousing endorsement, but then it hasn't been a even a full day yet.

I have to be honest, I kinda miss running the flagship board!

just to be clear... the R5E is THE motherboard... the sabertooth is like 1/2 a tier down...

:-) I know where the Sabertooth stands. After owning the ASUS flagship board for every new CPU I've bought in the past I naturally looked at the R5E first but upon reading reviews there seemed to be lots of people with problems. Maybe these have been resolved by subsequent BIOS updates, which is why I'm here now asking the question I'm asking. I want to know R5E owners' experiences and see if they're satisfied with the board now. I'm willing to spend the money on it, as long as I know it'll give me good stable performance.

I am really satisfied... If you want to hop to the R5E train, what are you waiting?

Almost there..

One question.. is the R5E and the R5E/U3.1 the same board? On ASUS's support page they show 2 different BIOS versions. 1902 for the Extreme and 1801 for the U3.1 Is this an oversight or are they not interchangeable? My local store only has the U3.1 variety.

It is the same board... Just with an add-on card... I think the bios is the same...
