Off Course the PWM's are much more efficient.

My Bad.

I'll leave my experience here, maybe it'll be helpful to somebody. I had the problem with RAM sticks not reading, as lots of people here, but my problem was that I removed protection plastics from CPU slot incorrectly (without opening the lockings) resulting some of the slot legs becoming slightly bent. After I straightened them, everything seems to be fine. So if you have ram issues, try to sheck carefully your CPU slot, maybe something is bent there.

I have a RAID question. Has anyone here set up dual PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 for their OS drive?

Hi, I recently started to order parts for my upcoming build since 2009 and wanted to go the same route I went last time with regards to components (Build for the future). This motherboard offered everything I wanted and some more. I have ordered the following so far and would appreciate your input for a cooling solution and my desired case:

Intel i7 5820k
Asus X99-E WS USB 3.1
Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 2x8gb (16gb) 3200Mhz

With regards to the cooling solution, I am undecided whether to go with an AIO water solution like a Corsair H110i/H115i or an air solution (Noctua D15s). I want reliability but also want an elegant and sleek system which in my opinion will be compromised with the Noctua D15s and its color scheme. I have explored other options that look very good and would flow very well with the motherboard's color scheme like the Be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 but it will interfere with the first PCI-E slot and possibly with ram slots.

In terms or Case options I want something compact and well built (without breaking the bank). I want to go with the just released Fractal Design Define C but not quite sure if it will fit. People have fitted this board perfectly fine on a Define R4/R5 but not on a Define S because of the aggressive angle of the cable sourcing/management panel. I would really appreciate any measurements or information on whether there is a chance of it fitting or not.

You may want to consider 32GB instead of 16GB for memory. Also, consider G.Skill instead of Corsair. Myself and many other people on this forum have had issues with Corsair, and better success with G.Skill. The reason I say 32 is because you would have better flexibility with your system. I personally have run into situations where I had lagging performance with programs and multi tasking with less then 32GB.

I also think you should get 32gb RAM. there was a few times when I had alot running and it took like 20gb of RAM,but nowadays 16gb is kinda minimum,get the 32gb.
I also did consider noctua air fan,but I really hate the color scheme that Noctua has on the air coolers so get a h100i v2 or h110i or h115i if you have the space for it.
I doubt that Define C has space for 280mm unless you put em in front of the case.
I bought the XL R2 which is enough space for the mobo+ my h100i aio cooler + fans and hdd's and my 1080 seahawk x.

Thanks for the reply and suggestions guys, I will definitely look into upgrading to 32/64gb of G.skill ram. As far as cooling/case options go I like the idea of using a compact case and optimizing space as much as possible while maintaining good operational conditions (Airflow/Temps). Will give the corsair AIO's a closer look.

Hi, Could anybody help me, please?

I bought an Asus X99-E WS / USB 3.1 motherboard but I have a problem with RAM and another with a Thunderbolt expansion card.

The RAM memory is of the CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX DDR4 3200 MHz model. The Mainboard recognizes the XMP mode when I select it and automatically enters the memory parameters. However, the system restarts the BIOS due to memory failure. Currently, I'm working with memory RAM at 2133 MHz, without using XMP mode.


On the other hand, there is the problem of the ThunderboltEX 3 expansion card, which simply does not work, although according to specifications, this should work in the PCIe X16 slot.
Finally, I've to clear the BIOS with CLR_CMOS button.

My system has these specs:

Asus X99-E WS/USB 3.1, with 3302 BIOS
Windows 10 Pro x64 Anniversary

- Intel 5820K 6/12 core processor
- SAMSUNG 950 PRO NVMe M.2 SSD, with 512 GB
- ThunderboltEX 3 add in (PCIEX16_2)
- Asus ROG STRIX-GTX1080-O8G-GAMING (PCIEX16_5), GPU under Bios Tool Shows native x16
- Corsair 128GB, 4 Memory Kit - Black of Vengeance® LPX 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 (CMK32GX4M2B3200C16.
- Corsair AX860 PSU
- 2 Optical (DVD-RW and BluRay-RW Drives)
- 1 SEAGATE 4TB HDD
- 2 WD 4TB HDDs in RAID 1
- 2 OCZ 1TB SSD in RAID 0

Based on the Asus website I was to install the drivers before connecting the add in card to the system, which I did, since this was a new system, I installed Windows 10 Pro x64 Anniversary with all updates and Installed all of the Drivers for Asus MB and Thunderbolt card from Asus website. All drivers appear in windows 10 devices administrator without erros. When the MB BIOS boot, the Q-Code change quickly for resetting the system and then the same process begins again.

My primary boot is 950 PRO NVMe M.2 SSD with UEFI, not MBR. With this I have the MB setting as follows:
- Fast Boot: enabled
- CSM Compatibility is set to Launch CSM: disabled.
- Under Boot\Secure Boot the OS type is set to Other OS
- Key Management:
Boot\Secure Boot\Key Management: Keys are loaded (thinking I should unload these as they aren’t needed).
- Boot Option #1: Windows Boot Manager

When I enable the ThunderboltEX 3 in the Bios I leave Unique ID as is.

I´ve tried both AIC Location Groups: SB(only PCIE_2 slot) and CPU0 NB PCIE Slot.

All other settings are left at default.

The Thunderbolt card has the header connected to the MB and to the card as shown by the Asus documentation.

HELP! Please any qualified engineer. So far I haven't achieved it works and I´ve checked it with different MB slots.

Thanks a lot.

You need to fall back to an older BIOS for TB support (covered well over the past few pages) - 2006 for example.

For Memory, X99 is very picky and even more so with XMP. Make sure it's on the QVL list before making a purchase of very fast RAM. Else set timings manually in the BIOS, and potentially even downclock them until it is recognized. These boards tend to favor SK.Hynix chips over Samsung. (Corsair loves Samsung IC's)
