I don't own one, but I've been considering a second LGA-2011 build, and am seriously considering the P9X79-E WS. I used to have a P9X79 WS and was pretty impressed with it.

How do you like your board? How mature is the BIOS?

Hi Blameless,

I'm really happy with this motherboard. It's been very stable under load and and trouble free so far. I have it mildly overclocked since stability is top priority for me. So I can't really comment regarding it's aggressive overclocking capabilities. So far, there's been one BIOS update from Asus. I will update my signature with my system spec tomorrow. The only problem I had with the board is that the bottom memory tabs are too close to the first PCI-e slot and could prevent some video cards from being installed on the first PCI-e slot. So if stability and performance is what you're looking for, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Own one and currently doing a build with it. Haven't even powered it yet and I love it. Post more here as the build progresses.

I have had mine for about 2 weeks now. So far VERY happy with it. The BIOS is awesome, works well and a LOT of features even for an enthusiast.

At the moment I have a 3820 installed, waiting for 4960X to be released.

Paired up with SLI Titans and 3 x 24" Asus screens.

Also custom WC system.

Were the pins bent before installing your water block and rigid acrylic tubing?? Or was it an accident on your part?

That was my concern when I ordered mine. My concerns were unfounded in my case, but I will be changing CPU's when the 4960X is available.

Good luck with it. A great board and fantastic bios!!

Looked like that when I first popped the cover off.
Because of this, I decided just to do the
Cooling on top because it was RMA. Otherwise I would have waited
for the processor.

Quick question guys,

Since I won't be upgrading from an existing chip and using the 4960x can I update the bios without having a legacy chip in?
I can download the bios onto a thumb drive and update that way but will it have to recognize the chip first.

Hope I am explaining this in a way that is understandable.

Thanks wink.gif
