WillyK,

Thank you for the detailed review. I will give DriverAgent a go.

work with 5960X on x99e-ws?

I am just about to place an order.

Probably. I have the Vengeance LPX 16GB sticks in 2666 C16 and they work fine at 16GB x 8 = 128GB. Running at 2400 C15. Much cheaper than ordering a 128GB kit.

Is the 128GB working with 5960X?

Hello guys! Big question here!

I am thinking about a third 980 that will be under air (unlike my other two under water) but 3-way 8x work in this config, and/or will the gpu cooler be touching the usb front panel plugs and frontpanel power/reset etc plugs making it not fit somehow? The card is Evga 980 SC ACX smile.gif
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Cheers! thumbsupsmiley.png

EDIT: Do i need to plug in a extra 6 pin to the pci-e power on the motherboard on 3-way sli? No need to when referring to the manual, only with 4 card or more. tongue.gif

This is bit fuzzy issue since apparently nobody tested it with 8x16GB RAM modules but ASRock motherboards similar to the X99-E WS have listed support for the 128GB RAM:

Supports Quad Channel DDR4 3200+(OC), with maximum capacity up to 128GB

On the other hand the X99-E WS mobo surely works with the 128 GB ECC RAM and Xeon processor since I am running this configuration. ECC is supported only by Xeon processors.

Thanks. I am aware of xeon and ecc support. The thing is that intel specs for 5960X says 'up to 64 GB' of RAM...

Yes, this is known standard fact. Question is if the specs were done when the were no 16GB DDR4 RAM sticks so they just put 'up to 64GB'. ASRock mobos state 128GB RAM support so it could be Asus mobos supports it too. Unfortunately it looks Asus support will never provide answer for anything which is beyond written in the specs. Testing by itself would be very interesting but potential hassle with returning components. Finally, at 128GB the ECC RAM+Xeon is very reasonable proposition, this is the amount where the ECC RAM should be used.

My system has been down for the last 3 weeks so I haven't had the opportunity to download or install the new Win 10 drivers. I'm wondering if the driver updates have fixed the RTC error.
post #2059 of 4073
Well i bought the 980 anyhow, Hope it fits...

So...... To sum up....

Well..... Not an hour ago I was about to push the buy button on a ws-e x99 board but for needing information on hyperkit specs/details etc etc ...

Not being a serial overclocker I wouldn't have normally joined but would have read through a few reviews etc...

I was looking for a more validated stable kind of board that was well engineered for workstation uses. I have been using a dell precision for the last few years and it is an ISV certified machine. I thought when the word validation is used it means kind of the same thing... This post has stopped me in my tracks. I am more than willing to get my hands dirty in configuring and learning as I always have but only if there is a healthy chance of the board actually working, not maybe...

Can anyone actually put this in perspective for me... Is this board at this time really floored as I'm led to believe. Are there actually serious problems here, a large run of faulty boards? I haven't the time to get an overall perspective on this with regard other x99 chipsets incarnations and I'm sure some people on here would do a better job than me. Is the ROG at the same stage of development etc etc ? Are there really people out there with non functioning motherboards with serious problems that can't be solved yet... Anyone care to sum up the actual situation as it stands in there opinion.

I've spent a lot of time thinking about the hardware I wanted mostly assuming the brands I've been looking at get the job done. Only by chance did I stumble across this thread and considering how late in the day I did find it it would be really useful to hear a conclusion at this point in time.

Thanks for reading and please bear in mind this post is only because I had made my mind up to buy this board and feel things are incomplete (in more ways than one)

Thanks butter
