MonnieRock Laithan,

Thanks for the reply and advice !

The one on ebay is roughly $720. Might as well bite the bullet and change platforms for that price

I noticed some of the China ones on aliexpress do not have "Asus" on the SB heatsink. Throws a flag up

Thank you,

Laithan I wouldn't think there is a big market for fake RIVBE boards... but I guess anything is possible.

My advice.. never buy a listing that uses STOCK photos. You want actual hi-res pics of the board you are buying. This allows you to inspect for bent pins, corrosion, signs of dice/ln2 use, etc.. Since eBay changed the policy for returns when a product is defective, buyers no longer have to worry about getting stuck with international shipping fees for a return (when DEFECTIVE). IMO I would study the listing, look at seller feedback, message the seller and take a chance if you feel lucky . I never care if the listing says no returns because if it is defective you just open a case, ebay will allow the return at seller's expense anyway.

There is this one in the USA but it is pricey and comes with memory... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Asus-Rampag...QAAOSwfttd2xOL

MonnieRock My RIVBE just died after serving me well since release day purchase.

Where do I find another one?

Ebay only has ones from China, are those authentic or some copy cat counterfeit?

Did not see any in the overclock.net marketplace.

gnasherrr my settings in case anyone wonders.
Other small stuff that might matter in no particular order just off my brain. Blck skew -3/pcie skew -30(helps with stability when blck/strap ratio is high like mine try -2/-20 if not as extreme)
/extreme tweaking on(helps with aida64 speeds)
/dram clk period 5(apparently 5 is best for performance. Not verified tho)
/dram swizzeling bit both off(not verified if this helps but some articles suggest to have them off for stability)
/latency boundary nearest(I don't thk this does anything if you manually set up secondary and third timings)

gnasherrr Yup. Mine is staying until trx40/trx80 gets out at least. I'm dailying at 1.5v 4.7ghz 1.30 2nd vvt/vccsa 2866 8*4gb 12-13-14-26-2t now. those are 24/7 speeds verified by prime95 and memtest. Actually I just found out yesterday that trefi is very relevant to memory latency and speed. The correct formula for it is ddr speed/2*7.8125. round up. Since the blck usually fluctuate a bit. You might need to figure out what blck/ddr speed the platform is actually running on most of the time and adjust accordingly. I managed to knock off 2ns from my aida64 latency by doing this. See my screenshot above

Laithan I honestly cannot come up with a solid justification to deviate from this platform. Newer platforms wouldn't really bring me much improvement (what 10% overall?) just bragging rights. There just isn't really anything that I do that demands more processing power, more PCIe lanes, etc.. IMO a E5-1680V2 is about the best deal going right now if you already have one of these boards and need a couple extra cores. These Xeons used to be $1000 and up for the longest time but now down to $200 bucks... sell your old CPU and it is cheap cheap.

Nice! Mine is still running a 4930k @ 4.2 ghz with 4x8gb strips of ram and a 1070. Sometimes I up it to 4.4ghz and sometimes I leave it the base (3.4ghz I think). I still have the issue with the occasional random black screens due to some voltage regulation issue on the MB. A restart is quick enough to get it up and running again with the NVME drive...lol.

Hopefully maybe in the next year I can upgrade to a more modern system.

gnasherrr benched a bit with the ek monoblock.
