Overclocking

Despite being a Workstation motherboard the X99-E-10G is hardly lacking in overclocking potential, easily bringing our Core i7-6950X up to a magnificent 4.5GHz. Unless our memory is mistaken the first of the latest generation of X99 motherboards to achieve this feat. We're sure you'll let us know in the comments if something else managed it. This was perfectly fine with a 4.5GHz overclock until we changed out our 2800MHz 'stock' memory kit and swapped in a 3200MHz kit to really try to push the envelope, no amount of tweaks and voltage fettling could get the system to our level of stable. It still passed 90% of our benches and even an OCCT run for thermal and stability tests but alas we couldnt get it 100% stable so for our benchmark runs we dropped the clock back to 4.4GHz with 3200MHz memory and the cache level upped from 3100MHz to 3400MHz this also allowed up to bring the CPU volts back down to a very respectable 1.365v.

Asus does have the xG-U2008 switch that will provide 10 Gigabit network switching for $249.Quote

Thanks for the review. I've been looking at that board for a while and couldn't decide between this and the RVE Edition 10.

Too bad it didn't have SFP+ ports for its 10GigE. Would've loved to throw out the separate 10GigE card while upgrading to this board.

Also it does only have two 10GigE ports. The other ports are all 1GigE.

A valid alternative if you've got SFP+ 10GigE is this one: TP-Link T1700G-28TQ

I've got one myself. It's great so far, especially for that price. Suitable for livingroom-use 'cause its fanless and it even has four 10GigE ports. Quote

The updated UEFI so M.2/U.2 drives are recognised isn't up on the support page yet. Sent a support request to Asus, hopefully they get back to me quickly with an updated UEFI or the MB is going back as I can't use it with my 750Quote
