ASUS RAMPAGE V EXTREME LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

2 out of 5 eggs Great Motherboard But some Connectivity Problems 04/27/2015

This review is from: ASUS RAMPAGE V EXTREME LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Booted up immediately with i7 5930k and 16 gb of G.Skill 3000 MHz memory. Running 4.5 Ghz and 3 MHz on Ram and is running very stable.

Cons: Wired/Wireless Connectivity. Wired worked with Windows 8. Installed 8.1 the Ethernet driver will not work and still have not found a work around. Has Wireless-AC connectivity however steaming seems to have problems. Streaming 1440p and 2160p (4k) is getting a lot of lag and will not even play the video.

Raid configuration only supports 4 hard disks. Not a major concern but I was originally going to run three different raid arrays to have separate storage drives for OS, Games, Media.

If you use 4 PCI-E x16 ports you will not be able to use the M.2 port as it will be deactivated to service you 4th PCI-E x16

Other Thoughts: Overall this Board is quite good and the only really problem is the Internet connections would love to have a work through for that.

My Build

Asus Rampage V Extreme LGA 2011-v3
16GB G.Skill Ripjaws 3000 DDR4
4x128 Samsung 850 Pro Raid 0 (1800 MBs Read)
4x Nvidia Reference GTX 970 - It does work in 4 way SLI with 20% performance boost over 3 way.
27" Asus 4k Monitor with 60 Hertz Refresh Rate.

1 out of 5 eggs Leaves room for a lot of improvment 10/19/2013

This review is from: WD My Cloud 2TB Personal Cloud Storage WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN

Pros: Cloud Idea is great.

Cons: Functionality. Like I stated the cloud idea is great and it provide access to the device on gaming systems and pc. But data transfer to this device is Terrible. I have the previous generation Airport extreme and it take over and hour to transfer a 4 GB file to this hard drive. I have about 500GB of movies and pictures to put on here but at that rate it would take what over 5 days to transfer everything to the device. NOT GONNA HAPPEN. If your gonna make it a cloud device great. But at least make it capable of being connected to the computer so you can load data at 3.0 speeds (50-100 MBS) then be able to use it as a cloud device because you dont need to transfer data more than 10 MB a second for video playback. This is going to sit and be useless now.

EVGA 02G-P4-3686-KR GeForce GTX 680 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card is amazing, I upgraded from a GTX 580 that I have run for two years, ran DX 11 heaven benchmark before swapping cards one card was 100% faster than the 580 and SLi'd the cards were 300% faster. Battlefield 3 in 3d runs great at 1920 x 1080, nothing slows these cards down. Black Ops 2 never glitches.

Cons: I'm gonna say price but as the saying goes you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: My system

i7-3930k, overclocked to 4.2GHz
16GB corsair Dominator DDR3-2133MHz
2x 90GB Corsair Force 3 GT in raid 0
3x 80 GB Intel SATA II in raid 0
