    Hope they dont put the orange on the new R5E board. Why cant they use the rgb leds ok but add a sticker pack of red, orange, silver, black etc for the board heat sinks.

    I am going to get the Deluxe II when it's available on Newegg and then if a new Rampage V BE or whatever comes out I will get that. I have been trying the MSI Godlike Carbon on one of my secondary computers. The MSI board definitely seems cheaper feeling than the RVE. I like it ok and I seem to have a better experience overclocking with it. It also does not break your raid after a bios flash. One big complaint is there is no bios flashback on this board which imo is one of the best features on ROG boards. I think their Z170 boards may have a flashback feature but not sure if it works as well as the ROG boards.

    There are bugs that are ignored though. It seems somehow after people flash their bios on the more recent boards that they end up with 1 or 2 sticks of bad ram. I don't know how. Probably something to do with voltage during or after flashing as improbable as it seems. There are just too many cases of it. I kind of ingnored it until it ended up happening to mine even though my ram was rock solid before the flash after countless passes of memtest86 and other stability tests. Just a really weird bug.

    Also the admins and mods on the MSI forums are total Nazis. They tell people they are liars and are posting garbage and threat bans. You can't discuss issues with other members having the same problem without one of the Nazis coming in and telling you not to discuss any further and to start a new thread where you basically have to start over and try to discuss the whole thing over again. The ROG forum is the best and most helpful forums out there in my opinion. Please forgive me if I offended anyone with this post.

    After using MSI I can definitely say I will be forever using the Asus ROG boards.

    Some other MB builder that starts with M, ends with I and has an S in the middle does exactly that with their latest.

    Were I not underwhelmed by various of their offerings on X99 previously for overclocking, its definitely a nice looking board.

    ASUS, it would not suck if you took drop's suggestion and did something like this:

    personally, I will just turn them all off. Black is good.

    While I think this is great, I still don't understand why they can't make these motherboards where they can boot off of two NVMe M.2 drives in RAID 0.

    Just gotta add the code that lets BIOS see PCI-e devices as bootable. Did it on the z-170.

    If I get a new board it will be the extreme but I can see the Srtix being a big hit at that price point

    Pcie devices are bootable already, M.2, U.2 and pcie card, just not in raid, may have to wait for S-E

    Hello

    A bit of code will not circumvent a hardware limitation at the platform level.

    Nice to see some old faces still here. I skipped the Hazwell E set up in favor of wating for the Broadwell E. So this will be a new build for me since 2014. Looking forward to the new system wint a GTX 1080 :P

    looks like they got the RGB lighting, but still have orange all over the parts we will yank and cover with a mono-block the moment we pull it from the box. ;-)

    It is the lightning and not any coloration on the board you can change it as you wish , they used black or transparent.
