    ASUS ROG RAMPAGE V Extreme Issues/No Issues

    Okay, so after chatting with a few users on this forum, I've realized that the question to ask here is...

    Who has had an Asus ROG RAMPAGE V Extreme for more than half a year/six months and hasn't had problems with it...?

    Judging by everything I've heard I haven't had one person tell me they haven't had problems with this board, and that is really unattractive. Has anyone been using this board for a long enough time to be able to answer this?

    And again, if not, does anyone have experience with the MSI X99A GODLIKE Gaming or MSI X99A Gaming 9 ACK? Is the reliability better with MSI regarding issues with MOBO's?

    Lets discuss

    -Kyle

    I have had a R5E from release, every one is going to have some kind of issue with any system sometime or another, do you see any other manufacturer with a user based forum that compares to these forums
    ASUS sells more boards than anyone else and these forums attract more users than any other manufacturers forums so obviously you will see more people posting there issues
    The smart thing to do is read all the reviews on the net to help make your decision
    I would say picking the correct components to go with the motherboard will determine if you have issues or not, these are high end motherboards and you should purchase high end components to compliment it
    The correct choice of power supply, always go over kill on the power supply
    The correct choice of memory and USB peripherals is where most of the compatibility issues are eliminated, still high end boards require some user tuning to get the most out of them and ROG UEFI bios's are regarded as the best in the industry and the fact that you see every other manufacturer mimic or copy ASUS ROG looks and features is a strong indication that ASUS is doing it right.

    Hi Kyle

    I've had mine for almost 9 months now. Not a single issue my end. This is my 7th Pc build I've made for myself. So I'm no expert.
    Technical forums dont tend to have people coming on and saying how amazing their rig is and they've never had problems.
    they come here to get help, vent and express there pain And that's what you get

    What you wont see very often are posts like, hi i got a Asus/MSI board. omg its the best and i have no problems.

    Msi's forums are no different. you will see alot of people complaining and having issues.

    I had it since the beginning, and I am in my fourth RVE.

    Sold the first one to try other boards. The second one got dead. The third had problems with usb's and fourth is here working ok...

    I have known a lot of users with problems too, specially with dead board/cpu and usb's...

    Im not here for long, only got my r5e about two months ago, less even. Since visiting these forums ive seen a lot of people that arrive pulling their hair just to end up solving their issues and concluding it was some user tweaking stuff not mobo defects Ive even seen posts describing how it was wrong to rma the mobo just to find the problem was the cpu after all Some forget that tweaking beyond the limits may endanger the expensive components and then blame how the mobo did not handle that extreme tweaking of the egg frying temps
    In my case I arrived looking at the board and bios like a donkey looks at a palace and got some help and slowly found my way around things and am on my way with caution not to take steps longer than my legs and burn something
    In a general matter I am pleased with what I got, hope it continues this way

    RMA my R4E. Upgraded to the R5E and got it last week. During Windows installation, the BIOS hangs during POST if my 2x (dual monitors) Dell 3014 USB connectors are attached to the board. A strange error. If only one USB cable is connected, it works fine. But with two it's a no go. This only happens if I do a restart either from Windows or if some other software triggers a restart.

    No issues like this with the R4E.

    Any suggestions? Cleared BIOS and is fully updated.

    So yes, problems...

    My RVE seems, for the most part to be ok. I do have a USB 3.0 docking station (for data backup) that worked fine with my Maximus V Formula system. With my new RVE, it drops out frequently regardless of which USB port it is plugged into. That is about the only issue I have so far. Well, there is one other - I can't get it to go into sleep mode, but I haven't really looked into that yet.

    Same here. No problems at all.

    Kyle, you have to take into consideration that this is a support form. So most, if not all, users come here to solve their problem. Thus the many threads with problems. LOL

    I've had my RVE since June 2015. I have no complaints. Everything so far has worked as advertised.

    Ahah fair enough. It's just heartbreaking seeing SO many bad reviews for a top of the line product. Especially when I've never built a PC before and never over locked before. Is there a more user friendly MOBO by any chance that is more reliable get will offer the game gaming experience performance wise?
