This board's OC is secondary, else they'd have put DIP5 on it, better mosfets, etc etc etc... It's not ROG, it's TUF, and that's saying something all in itself.
If I am truly looking for durability and stability, I would either go for X99E-WS or C610 based server grade MoBo. Pairing up with a Xeno and Registered DDR4 RAM for minimum error and maximum stability.
Looking at broader spectrum of X99 offerings from competitors. All other X99 offering at this price range emphasize on OC.. If this board is not for OC then why would ASUS invest in great amount of resource to put UEFI Advanced OC menu in there? DIP5 is good, but it is more for entry level and beginner OC. Most people would directly go for UEFI OC settings instead of risk using software OC.
Generally speaking, this board is all made ready to OC, just not to the LN2 extreme. However ASUS need to develop a new sub brand since they are relying too much on just the ROG brand. As a result we get a mid tier X99 with ALL of the OC features in UEFI, just with software OC removed and a TUF branding.Edited by xkm1948 - 1/25/16 at 7:12pm
