Wish I could afford it. Oh well maybe next year when DDR4 becomes mainstream I'll do an upgrade. I have the i5 750 since launch so ya :P

I think the X99 Deluxe looks better. Not a big fan of the huge "EXTREME" logo, find it kind of tacky.

And by the sounds of it, the chips aren't huge overclocker's anyways, so I'm not sure how warranted a RoG-type board is anymore.

ASUS Overclock socket. ASUS not standard Intel socket.

Patented to ASUS fore 6 months.

the Rampage V is worth the extra money over the Deluxe
More stable and easier to overclock says TTL at OC3D.

The X99 Deluxe also has that OC Socket as well as keeping dual NIC's, something I've come to miss with my RIVE. It also comes with the M.2 PCIe x4 card adapter and the fan expansion card. It seems like a very well-rounded board.

The RoG/RVE costs an extra $100 and removes the extra NIC and goodies, but gets you an extra SATA Express port and more internal USB headers.

...but still, hard to justify the upgrade. Roughly $1850 after tax for X99 Deluxe, 5930k and 32GB DDR4-2400.

No one saying the X99 is inexpensive.
The bench marks are impressive .

Have had Rampage Extreme III and IV. Going with the deluxe and some white tubing I think this time. Strictly for the colour.

It is a pretty board, If I had the spare cash and was still doing media work I'd jump on it for the extra cores and the jump in rendering, encoding etc speed. It's impressive.
But anyone thinking of having this for games is throwing away their money.
After Dx 12 comes out it'll be some time before it gets adopted in many games. Especially as new xbox an ps are Dx11?
Buying now for something thats not going to impact what your doing for over a year or more is not very smart. Heck I bet you could build a kickass rig now and again then for the same price as 1 of these.
