    Rampage V Extreme vs. MSI Godlike

    Since almost 8 Months im a proud owner of the Asus Rampage V Extreme Mainboard. Since day one it was quite stable till some windows 10 issues arised. But they where solved quite fast. Since than my machine is stable and a joy for gaming. The intel 5930k is also very powerfull. Now i saw MSI have the new Godlike Carbon and i find it very attractive. But is it better than the Rampage V? I dont know but my guess is yes. What do you think? Is it worth upgrading? Or is it almost the same? Or maybe inferior towards the Ramapge? Any tips are very cool.

    Hiya, If it is better or worse, it wont be much either way, probably a few %. spending all that money on a tiny lil percentage isnt worth it.
    We will be seeing new boards throughout 2016 to go with Intels new 2011v3 flagship processors which will no doubt look even uber sexier than Msi's carbon. Wait and see and save those pennies

    There was a long post on these forums about the original Godlike vs RVE
    The Godlike has some different features and obviously different looks and is probably a good board, I cannot attest to that from experience as I am satisfied with my RVE
    From what I remember the Godlike's I/O cover was very flimsy and imo looks quit tacky, but everyone has there own opinion
    It would be difficult to use all the features on either board, personally If your currently happy with your board I would wait till latter this year when the Brodwell-E CPU's are released and see what ASUS does with a revised RVE
    In the end it is your choice
    Have you asked this same question on the MSI forums, does the MSI forums have the same support as these forums

    My guess is that if you could build a system with the top-end motherboard from each manufacturer, and then use them each for a week, playing the same games, etc. and of course all using the same hardware - I doubt you could tell one from the other. I think it is all about the feature sets when you are at the high end.

    Look how far things have come in the last 5 years. Even a cheap system with a sub $100 motherboard and mediocre CPU paired with a nice SSD is screamin' fast. Just think of what will be around in another 5 years...

    For me, I went with ASUS because of the temp/fan headers and Fan Xpert. I just wish Fan Xpert wasn't part of AI Suite or the same options were part of the BIOS/UEFI.

    I took a look at MSI's page on the board. Half of it was in Italian for some annoying reason and I couldn't fix it, but I got the gist. It's a very nice board, but it seems to be missing (I could be wrong) an analogue to BIOS Flashback. That alone would decide it for me. BIOS Flashback is an awesome feature that is worth the price of R5E admission by itself.

    The upcoming processors, if I understand correctly, will be X99 and fully compatible with the R5E. I plan to use this board for a long time to come.

    They will be compatible.
    I think that would be biggest motherboard scandal in history if most famous motherboard for X99 not support new generation of CPU.

    It wouldn't be an upgrade at all, and performance is similar. It would be wasted money.

    After the release of Broadwell-E, we should see a Broadwell-E optimized RVE Black Edition sometime afterwards.

    Well, yeah, I'm more intrigued by that X99 5.1 Ghz Xeon chip they've been talking about recently.
