Once you guys get your boards tell me if yours have the header for the fan extension card that comes with the Deluxe version? It should be white and right above the front panel connectors. In his video at Tek Syndicate, JJ advised this board would support that card and I've seen pictures of board with the header. My board came with out it. Let me know.

Thanks.

I had a heck of a time getting my first board to recognize my M.2 SSD and actually boot from it as well. I will let you know about those headers in the next day or 2.

Bass is my business and business is good!

I'll try and get some good pics of my board when I get it. Finger's crossed!

Wow, seems like you guys are having a lot of issues with this board?

Its this down to Bios or drivers?

I just pulled my Z87 last night, the X99e ws isnt in stock here for another 2 weeks, but i'd rather wait, and live a month a or two with my 2500K than buy a bugged motherboard.

My plan is to setup the new board, and run of my current windows with new drivers, i really hope that is possible. Its W7 ultimate.

Got a question for you owners. How hot do your VRM's get? And what's your ambient!

Me too, I decided to give it a shot anyway. ASUS has a very active representative on this forum who has been working very hard and doing a great job servicing our community, thank you Raja!

I am hopeful that I don't run across any of the hurdles that others have but if I do I'll be sure to let everyone know what the issue was and when possible, the workaround, so that everyone knows.

Updated post #2 with some important troubleshooting steps from Raja that anyone with issues can try. They are also great points to keep in mind when building any rig but more so with X99 as it is so new.

hey guys!
I'm also waiting for mbo to be available here at all before getting hands on it. ordered it with my guy but last info I have is that it will be available in between 2 and 6 weeks!!!
And even that who knows really.
Right now I've got all parts but mbo and ram.
But these bad experinece stories makes me wonder...
In my current system there is p9x79-e ws and I'm not really 100% happy with it and makes me wonder a bit to change direction and get something else...
what happens is that I made couple tests with this board and maximus VI her, and two cards that I made test with, 780 direct cu II and titan are performing better on hero board then on this one.
I did everything possible followed all instruction from local asus support but no luck. Performance of both cards is lower on ws board then on hero board.
Plus I have 4 titans here and did tests with even 1 and always the same.
But back to the topic... I'm still a bit worried that x99-e ws will actually under perform as well.... hopefully someone with fully built system will be able to share some experiences soon.
Anyone?
so far got 5960x, corsair 900d case, h100i cooling, 4 titans are waiting in this system will transfer to new one, ax1500i PSU and samsung 850 pro 256gb are nearly here...
only seems that it could take couple weeks or more for 32GB g.skill ripjaws ram and mbo itself.
