Hi Raja,
Have a question for Asus

1. Is Deluxe using the same IR3555 integrated mosfet as Extreme? Or will IR3555 only for ROG series?
2. Since Extreme already has SupremeFX, what will differentiate it from the Formula?
3. What is different between CrystalSound and SupremeFX?
4. When is Pro and Formula boards coming?

I don't have my RVE yet, but I did have a simple question.

I have 2 SSD and 2 HDD from my old system. The 2 SSD (a 128GB and 256GB) ran on my older P6X58-D Premiums SATA3 in AHCI mode. The 2 HDD (Raptor 150GB 15krpm) were on the intel side configured as a raid 1. I read in the RVE manual that the SATA connections can only run in 1 mode. I.E. if set to RAID, all drives are set to RAID.

I am most likely incorrect, but I thought SSDs are best run in AHCI mode? If so, The single mode of the MB might cause an issue for people wanting a setup like mine? I'm most likely wrong, or at least I hope I am.

Thanks. Looking forward to my RVE and 5820K with a new Plextor M6e as a OS drive.

If you set raid the irst will be installed taking over from the generic ms ahci driver. Nothing to worry about in other words.

I'm hoping other X99 owners might be able to help me out here. I'm trying to overclock my 5960X and it's just not working with this board and I'm wondering if anyone else is seeing the same problems.

In the BIOS, it is defaulting to XMP overclocking and setting the CPU to overclock to 3750 MHz. I can change all the values, in this case, I specifically just try to set the ratio from the default 28 to 34 (I've tried everything in between, too) and the vcore to 1.31v (and I've tried 1.3v). I save and exit and the system reboots and is right back to the default XMP over clock settings.

I can occasionally get it to stay in default mode (not XMP) so the CPU runs at stock clocks, but usually it resets itself to XMP. I've tried updating the BIOS from 0505 to 0701 (and going back to 0505)... I've pulled the battery, reset the BIOS, tried DIP 5, etc... nothing seems to work.

Am I missing a key setting or switch? Do I have a bad board? Has anyone else run across these problems?

I tried switching it on and off to no effect (it's also impossible to get to when you have two graphics cards installed without removing the second card, kind of a pain.

It's currently switched off.

Does anybody know about the U.S. availability of the X99-A and Pro? All I can find to buy are the RVE, WS, and Deluxe.

Check the TPU switch is not on as well. These are off by default. You may have knocked either when putting the system together. The OC being applied hints at TPU. Turn it off and load defaults by pressing F5 in UEFI if you need to.

For X99-E WS give it 1-2 weeks.

PS. For anyone asking about availability or using this as thread as reference, the dates given are for North America only. I only cover the NA region. For others you will need to contact your local ASUS rep/channels as each region may have different availability or launch time frames.

Question! I'm on my X99 deluxe now, and there's this warning that keeps popping up on my bottom right corner.
It warns a low Vcore of 0.128V or Dram Voltage of 0.000V.
HWMonitor shows 0.9V for my Vcore and 1.2 on my Dram.

It doesn't seem to affect anything, but its really annoying to have something pop up on your screen so often.

This is called polling contention - it's because you are running more than one monitoring tool. The software is trying to poll the onboard sensor at the same time so one of them cannot report a value - hence the warning and misread. Ideally only one monitoring tool for voltages should be used at a time. You might be able to disable the monitoring of AI Suite in the options (have a look through). The only other option is to run just one tool if HWM wont let you disable some of its monitoring..

Can you run a M2 SSD On a Rampage V Extreme with a 4 Way SLI GPU setup?

And would the ability to run it be effected by if it's an X4 M2 SSD or a X2 M2 and or a SATA 3 m2?

Need some clarification on this apparently right now you can't do 4 way + m2 is this true?

Thanks

Hello

The manual is very specific so there should be no doubt or confusion regarding this. When using a M.2 drive the last x16 PCIe slot can only be used in x4 mode. As SLI requires that each card is connected by a minimum of 8 PCIe lanes this PCIe slot cannot be used for SLI when in x4 mode.
