For anyone interested. IMHO I still think that it's not a replacement board, because they are limiting connectability. It's lack of USB slots would be a deal breaker for me and I know others like Lady Fitzgerald would miss the extra SATA slots. I think it's more about adding WS options to their lineup to be more competitive to ASRock. Again. That's just my opinion. BTW. for those of you who think you could just add multiple hubs think again. When I tried to do that to my board I had tons of issues.

Just read the manual. No more Thunderbolt support which to me does not make since. If it was a replacement, why drop Thunderbolt support if you did not offer that feature on the USB C port. Other then the faster LAN features, and addition of the U.2 port, I really don't see how this board could be considered a "refresh".

If anyone did not read this my take on the new board. I just installed the updated AISuite software from this board and it is a nice little improvement over the version found in the X99-E WS 3.1 drivers section. The software is fully compatible.

No one has ever tried dual GPU and TB on this board? How? haha



Also, what's with the 10g not having Thunderbolt? Are they ****in serious...

I ordered a thunderbolt 3 card from B&H but the card is back ordered, and I don't have a time frame yet. As soon as I get the card I'll try to answer your question.

Correction, Their web page now says 27 August.

are you sure? no problems with the new ai suite 3?

I dont know whats wrong with my ai suite,but I have my cpu fans on a curve and whenever I boot my pc up,it goes to 100% so my pc is really loud. So I have to go into suite and switch it to rpm mode and then back to smart mode. Then the fan goes down to normal.

when im on the subject, how do I get rid of that push notice with EPU, FAN profiles and speaker icon that is on desktop?

No problems at all. In order to get rid of the desktop icons right click on the desktop icon and uncheck the option to display them. Now when I tried to install the new AISuite from the RAMPAGE V EXTREME/U3.1 I got error messages during bootup so I ended up uninstalling them and going back to the older version. I did not have any issues with the X99-E-10G WS drivers and apps. you might want to remove the old software first. Here is the download link.

Confirmed. I orderered and paid for a new board and when I received mine it was clearly used and even damaged in some places. So this is at the very least some demo board or refurbished (even though I don't see how one could let that pass a refurbish quality check tbh) which shows again how scarce these boards really are.

That's funny,

I did the exact same thing the other day except I took the AI suite from the new rampage edition 10. Worked as well. It just doesn't install the programs or parts your motherboard isn't compatible with/for

There are a few things puzzling me though, and I'm not sure wether this is related to Asus AI software or this board or bios. Perhaps some people here can shed some light.


When I fix the core CPU voltage in the bios by setting it to manual and e.g 1.24v I notice that in windows in the Asus AI interface the actual voltage will show 1.28v. But after running a stress test for a few minutes, even after making sure all voltage settings in AI or not on AUTO, the voltage still suddenly automatically jumps up to 1.34 or even higher after a while and the fans ramp up to max. As if my whole manual set, loaded and applied profile suddenly is diregarded and the whole system is falling back on full auto again

This doesn't make sense as to my knowledge everything auto is turned off. Anyone with similar experiences or insights ?


Edit: Nevermind I found it. It's the way this board's BIOS works. Instead of manual or offset mode I apparently need to use adaptive and specify a max ceiling vcore voltage under load

I was wondering to go for 2x 1080 in SLI, but since I have (and I need) Thunderbolt I'll wait..
Since TB card cannot work outside of slot #2, we could have luck mouting VGAs in #1 and #3 while using a PCI-E riser cable for TB card from #2 (my case has a vertical side slot useful for this)
Anyway, as confirmed before, bios 3201 break TB support at all

I would like to raise a ticket to them, as everyone should (the more they get, the faster they'll care)

What exactly did you see/experience with BIOS 3101 and TB in slot 2 in following scenarios:

-video cards in slots 3 and 5 ?
-video cards in slots 5 and 7 ?

Slots 3 and 5, machine boots if I rebuild resources one card at a time, but TB driver not visible at all in Windows. Both GPUs work great.
Slots 5 and 7 I haven't tried since my case is rackmount and can't fid a double wide card in 7. Actually, I doubt a doublewide would fit on this mobo at all, given all the connectors that are there on the x99-E WS.
