    the X299 will have 2066 in stead of 2011 :P
    if you buy my x99 you can buy me a x299 when it comes out, equal trade
    i got the strix version of the x99 MB, not OC or enny thing, games is where i am at.

    Good to see you too, kkn!
    I guess, for now, I will go ahead and build on the X99 platform - then will see when the X299 will come out!
    Already got rid of my 3000MHz kit and ordered the 3200MHz one.

    Anyone has something good to say about the Sabertooth X99?

    I've never seen the pointy end of one...so don't know really...good boards for longevity...and I've seen nice OCs on them too...but maybe not bleeding edge OCs?

    RVE10 is a great board...

    Indeed - more I am reading about the R5E10, more I like it!

    One more question if I may: how to cool the VRMs?

    If I mount the system in a case (not decided yet which one), the radiator has to go on the top - it may partially cover the VRM heatsink or not, either way the airflow will not be good enough. On the Sabertooth X99 there is an extra fan on that I/O shield box which would help. Obviously could use waterblocks, just curious if really necessary...

    Anyone reporting heat issues on the top of the R5E10 board when installed in a case?

    The Rampage V Edition 10 is the only way to go! Got the motherboard since it came out and loved it. Still loving it til this day.

    PS: Welcome back, Zka17!
