In need for a new motherboard what should i get?!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright so here is my current build

CPU - Intel Core i75820K
Motherboard - ASUS X99DELUXE/U3.1
Video Card - Nvida GTX 1080 Founders
PSU - CORSAIR HXi HX1000i
Memory - HX421C14FB/8 (3x) 32GB
Cooler - Hydro Series™ H80i GT
Hard Drive - SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 512GB


I have to get a new motherboard because i am having ALOT of USB problems with the Asus board i have now. I have looked it up and it seems to be coman with this board and its getting to the point where i just want to replace the board and finally finish EVERYTHING with Asus. I have posted on the ASUS forum but not respond so i am hoping to get something over here!

I have done everything i can think of to fixing this USB problem and just cant...It really disables All usb and then turns them back on...and last night had a problem that it looked like they where back on but Mouse and Keyboard did not work. I had to remote into my desktop and reboot it for it to work again.

Contacted Asus and they want me to send the board into them and wait 5-7 business days to get a replacement or have them fix it. I find it to be BS but ok.

Anyways i am in need for a new board any help would be good.

Dont care to much about over clocking but would not mind to have it at some point.

If i missed anything please let me know!!! Looking to order one like NOW!

Thanks

Why do you have a 1000 watt PSU for a system that dont draw more then 300 watts? Way overkill and half the wattage could do it
Besides what you picked is not a very good option even if you need that much wattage as there are options that are much better as well as cheaper then the HXi you picked.

As for motherboard take a look at the Gigabyte X99 Ultra Gaming.

Yeah i know the PSU it a bit overkill but my buddy built the system for a little over 2400$ and 3-4 month later he didn't want it anymore and i picked it up from him for 1200$ after said and done and selling my old parts in total it cost me around 600$ for this desktop. I have made a few upgrades like the 1080 & the M2 drive but that's it.

So you think this would be a good choice?! - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128928

The Gigabyte X99 Ultra Gaming is the board i ended up getting after looking at all X99 options
Other then the fact that its missing an LED error display and an onboard start bottom i have nothing to complain about

Really great board so far with no problems.

Alright man! Taking your word going to order one up now!

How is there software with them? Updates and stuff like that?

Never used a GIGABYTE board before

Have not updated yet as i keep forgetting about it so i am still on the F2 BIOS the board comes with
See that the F4 BIOS came out not long ago so need to get around to installing that.

So i am going to order that board up. I have been reading that even some of the new Asus X99 boards are still having USB problems and also i was looking at MSI boards and some of them have USB problems so maybe its the x99 chipset that is the problem...ALso as i was typing this USB stopped working and had to wait till them came back up sooo bad!!! I hope this board will work just fine for us!!!

I can attest that the gigabyte x99 board should work for you without problems. Have you tried updating the bios on your current board? I don't believe the issue is with the x99 chipset if the problem is isolated to two manufacturers.

Yes i have the newest bios on the system and still having this problem...With the reseach that i have done it looks like it might have to do with ASMedia drivers but i am not sure if it is...I have done EVERYTHING from installing new OS and installing the factory drivers right from Asus and still have the problem...

I do like Asus \they make good products but i feel there Software & Drivers have always killed them in the long run. I do have a MSI motherboard in my little server i have and it runs great but what i have seen the with X99 boards they have some problems. The GIG boards look nice...I am also trying to stay with the color of my system i have ALL black and white so its hard to do that as well...

Also should i get new ram along with this Board?
