Help me to choose x99 Mobo - Page 6

There might be differences in BIOS, but i'm talking on hardware level.
What you told me is basically: "I'm right, you're wrong. There is something you dont understand, tho i dont either. And i currently have no evidence to support my claim" biggrin.gif

I'm talking about hardware level, which should have been obvious from speaking about power delivery. Considering you think there are only 2 VRM types on this line up shows you do not have a deeper understanding of these things, so I would not be so quick to judge. Like I said, I can happily ask the right question if you are intrigued enough to find this out, beyond looking at what you see under a heatsink.


If you understood as much as you talked, perhaps the overclocking analysis us readers have to endure wouldn't be so slap dash. (Can't think of why anyone else would have majority of the X99 line up on their bench.)

Oh please do, educate me.

OK, OK, back to the basics. At the end of the day, the R5E isn't really going to help you OC a chip further for 24/7 use. Maybe for DICE or LN2, but not for 24/7 rock solid use. I.e. I pop my chip into an R5E, unless I use manual voltage and max out the VRMs, I'm not going to gain any further OC headroom. It's still a standard binned chip.

I got the ASUS X99-A USB 3.1 a few months ago and haven't had any complaints.

Well i kinda agree with your posts in this thread.
I have also taken a closer look to the vrm designs on the Asus X99 boards.
And my conclusion is sorta the same.

Asus X99-A and the X99-Pro have an identical vrm.
The main diffrence is that the pro feuture a fancy heatpipe and io cover.
Both boards are basicly totaly the same thing, the main diffrence are feutures.
The Asus X99-A is basicly a gimped down version of the pro.

Asus X99-S vs Deluxe:
These 2 boards are also identical wenn it comes to the vrm design as far as i know.
The main diffrence between the X99-S and the Deluxe are again feutures.
The X99-S is a gimped down version of the Deluxe.

I think that the rampage 5 extreme has a diffrent vrm.
Atleast it looks to me, that there are diffrent inductors used on the rampage.
The rest of the vrm components might be identical to the Deluxe.
But i realy need a closer look to that.
