Absolute Performance

CPU Overclocking

Overclock with Confidence - Over 4.8GHz Performance !
ASUS X79-DELUXE elevates CPU overclocking stability to a whole new level: a new Intel® LGA 2011 3.4GHz processor can be cranked confidently all the way up to 4.8GHz - and even beyond! This truly incredible performance is possible thanks to precise, real-time power control from ASUS digital power design. By offering best-in-class efficiency while reducing wasteful voltage discrepancies, ASUS digital power design provides an extremely stable platform for your overclocking endeavors. This overclocking power can be unleashed via settings in the X79-DELUXE's new UEFI BIOS or the brilliantly easy-to-use ASUS AI Suite 3. AI Suite 3 allows you to concentrate on fine-tuning your system for the best balance between performance, stability and efficiency in real time - adding to the premium overclocking experience delivered by X79-DELUXE.


DRAM Overclocking

Eight DIMM Design - X79 Done Right
Support for up to 64GB of system memory with an 8-DIMM design on ASUS X79 motherboards provides the capacity for users to make full use of modern 64-bit software, ideal for rendering detailed images or manipulating large files without the bottlenecks of conventional storage. X79-DELUXE is able to overclock all 8 DIMMs up to over 30% better than previous X79 motherboards. It also allows users to set up big RAM disks and speed up frequently accessed programs, minimizing the impact of storage transfer delays while maximizing user benefit.

Dual Intelligent Processor IVs with Four-Way Optimization One click for better performance, efficiency, digital power control, reduced noise, and improved cooling.

Multiple SSD Caching, Instant Upgraded Speed
ASUS SSD Caching II has been upgraded with a multiple caching function, adding four extra SATA 6Gbps connectors onboard. This feature offers performance upgrades by using multiple installed SSDs as a cache for frequently accessed data. It also allows user to choose the combination that suits their needs. For example, you can choose three SSDs matched with one HDD or two SSDs with two HDDs. Harness a combination of SSD-like performance and response and hard drive capacity with a single click, without the need to reboot for instant activation and complete ease of use. As an added bonus, it can even prevent data loss with the included backup function, so you can rest easy knowing your data is secure. Despite its power, there's nothing complicated about SSD Caching II - once enabled, everything works automatically.

Exclusive EZ Mode Adds Useful Info to Become Even Easier
Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS provides the smoothest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS, and now features more intuitive functions to quickly take you to favorite BIOS pages and frequently-accessed settings through custom shortcuts. You can even write quick notes in-BIOS for future reference, view an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports. EZ Mode has a whole new look, upgraded with extra-friendly capabilities like detailed fan controls, XMP profile settings, SATA information, and fast clock adjustment. Together, these perfect your BIOS experience.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS X79 DELUXE

Pros: This board has some amazing overclocking features, and the on board start and reset button make out of case testing so easy. Good PCIe layout, but most boards nowadays are like that. The heatsinks aren't too tall, so they don't really block a radiator for push/pull, at least not in my Enthoo Pro. It actually has all 8 DIMMs instead of 4 like my previous EVGA board.

Cons: Color scheme doesn't fit with the rest of my build, but the rest of it doesn't really have a color scheme anymore.

5 out of 5 eggsboard repair

Pros: Bought this board to replace a malfunctioning gigabyte x79-up4.

So far so great, computer is running fast as ever.
Board is first off nice looking straight from the box.
Got into the case easy peasy. Jam packed with features which I was amused to find a on board surge protection. On board wifi which I'm not using at the moment but may come into play down the road. Nice components.

Cons: So far none. Hoping this board lasts me longer than the 15 months I got from my gigabyte board.

Other Thoughts: Computer specs.
Intel i7-4930k
Asus x79-deluxe
16gb g-skill quad channel g-skill memory (from board qvl list)
Evga gtx 780
Seasonic x650

Running like a beast (again) after swapping out multiple pieces and having a hell of a week diagnosing problems with the pc. Turns out the x79-up4 was causing intermittent lock ups of the system (after a move and 15 months of use)
The x79-deluxe has been everything it had promised to be after testing it for the last week.
Will update if anything happens

2 out of 5 eggsCpu overheated.

Pros: $179.99 after mir.

Cons: Why did my cpu overheat? Because I hooked up my H110 to the CPU_OPT connection like I was supposed to but for some reason my cpu temps went up to 94C! Took a couple of minutes for me to check the pump speed in the bios setup and the rpm was at zero. It turns out that the cpu_opt is faulty so I connected the aio cooler to the cpu_fan and it works fine. Now I am having to run prime95 to check for cpu damage.

Other Thoughts: I hope Newegg replaces my new board with a new board and not some open box or refurd board.

2 out of 5 eggsMotherboard shipping

Pros: Arrived in timely fashion

Cons: no fragile label affixed to package. Box had puncture and was taped with packing tape..

Other Thoughts: A motherboard is fragile. other vendors use labels why not this one.

5 out of 5 eggsyou won't regret it. (important note in thoughts)

Pros: extremely well-performing, great for overclocking, and so many features your brain will melt. takes total advantage in almost all of the top-of-the-line Asus features.

Cons: large price tag, though worth it. I guess anything x79 is going to be expensive, however. I have no buyer's remorse. bios flash required. see other.
the on-board Wi-Fi does not work for gaming until modified. intermittent 1,000+ latency UNTIL ALL Bluetooth settings are disabled.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: This board comes with all of the bells and whistles. It has an ample number of usb and sata ports. Like all x79 boards it supports 64gb of dual or quad channel ddr3 ram across 8 dimm slots. Set up for tri sli or 3 way crossfire. comes with lots and lots of accessories to connect all sorts of peripherals and extra drives. Bios is incredibly easy to use and overclocking is pretty much made idiot proof.

Cons: price. can be somewhat complicated to setup if you are a first time builder.

Other Thoughts: Besides the price it is a killer board with lots and lots of features. Chances are if you are using a cpu with a 2011 socket then price wasn't an issue for you to start with.

1 out of 5 eggspoop

Pros: fairly stable until wifi died

Cons: couldn't push my 4930k past 4.2ghz not even with 1.4v while x79 extreme11 could do 4.8 at 1.41
i got a pair of bluetooth headphones and paired them last saturday. on the next reboot i have no internet so i investigate and wifi says there are connections available but it refuses to connect to anything not even my cell's hotspot. reinstalled windows (to eliminate any virus/driver/software issues) and still no luck. the wifi is so buggered i can't even connect to the net at anything higher than .7mbps and there like 27% packet loss.

Other Thoughts: i have to rma hopefully its better than my last asus adventure (280x RMA'd 3x and still broken and they sent it back w/o my box and smelling like ramen noodle powder)

2 out of 5 eggsfrustrating and disappointing

Pros: Impressive claims

Cons: Cannot get any MB audio to work. Speakers, mic in front/back, Line in front/back all report "Not plugged in". Driver reload and trip back to Asus were no help. Factory tech-support was clueless.

Other Thoughts: With the large number of issues reported one wonders if these boards get tested *at all* before they ship.
