[Official] ASUS X99-E WS Owner's thread - Page 96

post #951 of 3957
Hey guys, can this board run the regular processors or does it only take Xeons? i was wondering if it supports everything normal boards do like ram, or does it require more expensive components? I just became interested because i see it has support for Skylake cpu's.

It will run any LGA2011-v3 socket CPU (this includes LGA2011-v3 i7 extremes and the E5 line of xeons). It only supports DDR4 RAM, DDR3 is incompatible with the x99-e WS mobo.

Yeah i knew it only supports DDR4, can it take regular memory or does it have to be registered? What is the future compatibility with Skylake processors? I assume it will support Skylake-s and Skylake-k but i've no idea if it will support Skylake-e.. If so then it seems it might be a good board for me, since i could put in a 5820k and have the choice of going Skylake-e when it comes out.

Oh it can take Non-ECC as well as ECC. If using an i7 you must use non-ECC, if using xeons you should use ECC. As far as registered vs unregistered ECC, I'm not sure.

On the topic of skylake, I don't know unfortunately. If they use the LGA2011-v3 then yes, but that remains to be seen (or if it is known I haven't read up on it yet).

I was going by what i read here http://news.softpedia.com/news/ASUS-Formally-Launches-X99-E-WS-LGA-2017-A-Motherboard-with-Skylake-Support-458632.shtml

I haven't seen any more info on Skylake support than that.

Don't count on it.

Also, general question: can we still use front panel connectors (i.e. power switch) when covered by 4th GTX Titan?

thanks!
post #958 of 3957
It all depends on whether LGA2011-v3 socket is used by the higher end skylake chips or not. I don't see why not, however I don't see broadwell at all on LGA2011v3, (Just not going to happen).

I am running with 4x16GB without any issues and can't imagine it would not run with 8x16GB, in fact I am planning to buy another 64GB kit. Regarding 4x32GB this is not specifief and I think it will not run, otherwise there would be immediately question why not 8x32GB?

No, the power switch is on the side falling under the graphics card. But who needs access to the mobo power switch when loaded with 4xSLI??? OK, maybe it is possible to slide finger under the card and use the switch smile.gif
post #960 of 3957
4th card does cover some things here also presses a bit hard on all those front panel connections, you cant use that small white adapter for example but have to plug them all directly .. so far it works but would be more comfortable if card is not pressing all those things under so hard
