They have an X99 and a Z170 board out AFAIK.

I think they started gaming mobos with Z68.. don't quote me on that however.

I'd like someone here or a reputable site or person to do an in depth review on one before I pick one up however. I'm weary about overclocking options. Heh.

Neat fact... from what I've seen (from the X99 and Z170 boards) their gaming boards come with IPMI's too. Which is sick for when the board can't game anymore but can be repurposed as a server. Might even support ECC RAM with a Xeon installed. I wouldn't be surprised at all.

I wanted to get a gigabyte board but the new boards are aesthetica’ly terrible IMHO and the cost seems high forbthe features

I don't like the colour schemes Gigabyte has been using as of late either....

I feel that manufacturers actually forgot about the consumers that like the clean look and don't want in your face useless features, that literally have no benefit what's so ever, it may be that the board is rubbish, but there isn't another board which even remotely looks clean. so unless anyone knows of one which I may have overlooked in my research feel free to recommend it.
Practical types who are more interested in performance, durability, support and function over form will just grin and bear the rainbow we have to taste these days...

So, they are trying to edge out competitors in the space of people who would buy a motherboard purely for its color or EEEEXTREEEME branding credentials.

In other words, Nigerian banking emails are so laughably stupid because they are trying to snare people who don't realize this. If you can tell its a scam, you are not the target audience. Or in MB terms, if you make your decisions on something other than sound and fury signifying nothing, then you will still do so. If you don't then no amount of power phases would be enough to sway you to an old-school green PCB with off-white sockets.

Fortunately my case has solid black panels, so MB color scheme and lights are irrelevant biggrin.gif.

Furthermore, say goodbye to cache over clocking with EVGA. AKA 15gflops+ Whetstone performance.
you can kiss cache OC goodbye with Broadwell anyway...

Had an X99Pro go pop, squish...Cicero.... CPU and ram survived and are running happily the replacement MB. It had been sporadically rebooting with no error indication in the days prior, after months of 24/7 solid performance.
Debugged, swapped, isolated to MB, called, told them all of that and voila, had a new MB in short order.
So, I must be doing it wrong? Maybe US vs some other place's policies?
Fossie and Richie fan? cool.

RVE Edition 10 ... so not needed ... so tempting ...

Is it more BW-E-friendly than the X99-A / U31? Maybe the X99-A II for 1/2 the price if OC is similar, though the RVE 10 may have some perks there vs. the X99-A II?

Sigh ... decisions, decisions ... rolleyes.gif

get a 10 or a used r5e. best overall x99 MBs available. (the Giga OC is a good one too).

Got my E5-2667 V4 working after a BIOS update on my MSI X99A SLI PLUS motherboard. Boosts to 3,00 Ghz on all 8 cores during 100% load. Decent for a 320€ CPU! (It's an ES yes, but works absolutely fine.)

Should I try BCLK OCing? Usually these reach ~105BCLK max.
