[Official] ASUS X99-E WS Owner's Club

This is my first time at such a thread so please be patient. If there is no objection, I would like to create a thread just for this motherboard as it is pretty unique IMO, and definitely is a great looking board. I've looked at some other owner's threads and borrowed the format of the OP from them, thanks to the other thread owner's creators for the template! thumb.gif

If you think that there is something that should be added to the OP please let me know and I'd be happy to add it.

I just ordered mine (9/29/2014) so I'll update the thread with pics of my board when it arrives.
