I'd atleast for now, until Asus has completely provided exhaustively all the possible reasons as to why it is specifically their boards that do this. I'd stay clear of Asus.

Where are you reading this? I'm getting my information from the Legit Reviews article "Intel X99 Motherboard Goes Up in Smoke For Reasons Unknown".

The power supply that LR used was the Corsair AXi 860. It was an older AXi too, with a single rail and no OCP enabled by default. There's not even a mention of the AXi 1500 in the article, just someone mentioning it in the comments. You should really read through the LR article, it doesn't sound like your source of information has the information from the LR issue.

Here's the link to official Asus forums. You could go there and see the number of threads mentioning the issue as well as the various configs that affect them.

So this is a few months old now, but the new Broadwell-E's have arrived. I just read that in certain circumstances, even such as gaming, that the 6800k (or 6850k? sort of confused on what they are calling it, but the 5820k's replacement is what I'm referring to) is about 10% better. I have a 5820k and let me just say, there hasn't been a single game or program that's stressed it even slightly since I've built my rig.

Having said that, I may at some point upgrade just my CPU. As far as I know all I should need is a BIOS update to support the new Broadwell-E's....

To be honest though I'm in no hurry, the bottleneck in my system is the G1 GTX 970 and I'm waiting at the edge of my seat for a damn custom GTX 1080 to finally hit the market. That's all I'm worried about right this second. Well that and the Acer Predator X34 and Z35. I've really been eyeing those up but I haven't made up my mind yet.
