Thats kind of the thoughts I'm on, I'm really not sure what motherboard to get, I would love dual nic's but don't really need them, I just need a solid board for the next 4 years, I'd prefer to do the full board cooling option as well.

That makes it simple then, Asus or Gigabyte! Rampage V is very nice and Asus are solid boards, but no way I'd ever pay that much. I read many not too great reviews about Gigabyte X99 boards, particularly related to the BIOS, but didn't experience any of the issues others had. Microcenter made it an easy decision, 140$ open box X99 UD5 coupled with a 20$ 2 year replacement plan (extra protection against any potential Gigabyte customer service issues) and I've been a happy camper for three moths or so.
Also, this Ek full bock fits several X99 Gigabyte boards: http://configurator.ekwb.com/waterblock/3831109821336

the last i read was to stay away from any asus board with an overclock socket. its not my platform but i dont know if asus ever admitted it was their boards fault.
oh, what was the problem? you asked. cpu were frying left n right.

Ummm I think that stance is rather one sided, considering it was Corsair who neglected to Merion to anyone that they changed the firmware that caused the issue with the ASUS boards to begin with.

imho It is Corsair fault for not doing so. ASUS bends over backwards to make sure their hardware works smoothly and I am sure had Corsair informed them of the change, that ASUS would've either informed them of the issue or would have addressed the issue in their labs.

Simply throwing ASUS under the bus as though they did it is rather short sighted.

I have heard that it wasn't just Corsair but I won't rule out the other incidents I'd heard of. Considering Corsair doesn't normally build their PSUs and the company that does is truly the one to blame. If you change anything power related, don't you think you should inform the companies building the mainboards so that they can test and correct for potential issues? wth.gif

seeing that it was only asus' overclock socket, it is asus' fault. also, you are doing exactly what asus did and not put the blame on asus. they took no blame and failed to mention to anyone what was happening. they refused to acknowledge the issue. also, it wasnt only corsair power supplies it was happening to. it was various psu manufacturers being used. asus made a socket that didnt work like it was expected to.

I never said ASUS wasn't at any fault. I said that had they been notified(Corsair admitted they informed nobody of the change in firmware) they would've likely tested and fixed it themselves prior to building, boxing and shipping the affected boards.

Now prove to me they knew prior to launch of the issue. Because I doubt you will find anything or anyone representative to ASUS stating they knew of the issue prior to launch. I'd bet it came as a complete shock to them the moment people started calling in about their board frying $1k chips.

That's not to say that they aren't somewhat culpable in the issue. Just that it probably would've saved them ALOT of money in manufacturing and RMA processes. wink.gif

Are you guys talking about Fried Chips due to over-volting or what?

I have seen my RVE pump out 2V to the cores while in the BIOS. CPU still alive and all. But the issue cannot be replicated. I've tried, I failed. I'm sure I am not using a Corsair PSU too. biggrin.gif

Water cooling-wise Asus and Gigas are the only ones with Full Chipset blocks. But even the VRMs don't need water cooling unless you really want to.

it was asus' fault. some boards had problems some didnt. some burnt chips were overclocked and some were stock. asus would not recognize or acknowledge an issue. that is pure and simple neglect no matter what any person, fanboy or not, has to say about it.

now back to on topic since asus negligence is not water cooling directed.

Yes.

But we're speaking of the x99-Deluxe with OC socket. iirc.

The issue asfaik didn't appear on RoG boards. I could be wrong, but I haven't heard anything about them in that regard. thinking.gif

^Please show me where I said they are not at fault in any shape form or fashion of the very definition of fault. You can call me whatever you like if you wish to. Still doesn't change the facts.

Board manufacturer is blamed for issue resulting at the hands of the PSU.

PSU escapes blame because boardanufacturer doesn't own up.

Sounds a bit like the Firestone issue connected to Ford Exploders having improperly marked psi ratings on their door jambs.

Talk about stupid ridiculous imho. rolleyes.gif

I would defend whoever the board manufacturer is because they by Corsair own admission were not notified of the change in firmware. Corsair don't make their own PSU. Their manufacturer(Seasonic) does. How many of those brand name PSUs are manufactured by Seasonic that helped cause the issue? Do you even know? mellowsmiley.gif

And yet I'm a "fanboy". kookoo.gif

Try applying some critical thought to the entire issue. cheers.gif
