Asus X99 Deluxe II - PEICE OF $hi%

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

paid over 400 bucks for this board, and in less than a year its dead.. on a mission critical computer.    Do not buy. they want to RMA it,  and i'm trying to talk them into letting me pay the difference on the workstation board.  If anyone is considering buying this one, I strongly suggest you read all the reviews. my problems started 6 or 7 months ago when hardware overclock of any shape or form just STOPPED working. computer would not boot with any over clock at any voltage. I've also never been able to get my 3333mhz memory higher than 2800.   

 

Just FYI.

You probably killed it with the overclock (Or maybe factory bad Mobo) But I have never trusted Asus with mobos.

i highly doubt i killed it with a 4.1 ghz overclock on a 4.0ghz chip using less voltage than intel specifies at 4.0... so no.   its just a peice of junk. and you can read the new egg reviews of them to see im not the only one with this problem.  I think LMG just put these in their workstations... good luck.

Their workstation boards are pretty bad too. There are constant memory errors, hanging, boot issues, power issues, and BIOS issues. The quality of Asus Boards has declined greatly over the years.

Good to know.  Im guess im just going to have to live out this 3 year warranty period than then build something with a super micro board.   


i dont understand why its so hard for people to just make a good product.

If your pc is mission critical you should be looking at the WS series, and not overclocking at all. Still, defective parts happen. Unless you can point to a specific reason for the whole lineup being botched it's hard to base a purchase decision off of this. Also, are you 100% positive the cause of the problem is the motherboard and not the cpu or ram? If you started having problems 6 months ago you should have contacted support right away.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

yes. I should have.. but it worked fine with no overclock and was still fast enough for the workload so I didnt bother.  there isn't anything else that could be the problem.  its been getting worse for a few weeks, just shuting off randomly, or losing bios settings. It just hadnt died till now.  when it was up, everything worked fine which tells me the cpu, ram, power supply and memory are all good.    Like i said, im going to try to get them to give me a ws board and be done.  or just refund this on all together and Ill buy the ws board.

Same with the Rampage V Extreme Edition 10.  I also had the x99 Deluxe for well over a year before the RVE10 and it worked flawlessly.  It's heading over to the UK as I type this ready to take on more overclocking.  :D

 

@JCBiggs Why did they deny your RMA?  Your board has a 3 year warranty and they didn't just simply say no.

They didnt deny it. I just asked if i could upgrade to the WS  since this PC is mission critical.  No need to turn around and have the same problem in another 11 months.  waiting on the answer.

Oh, you meant they won't RMA it in the manner that you wanted.  That makes more sense.  

 

It would be nice if we could pay the difference for the next higher model, but most companies simply don't do this.  Occasionally people luck out with things like GPU RMAs where they send in a 980 Ti and get a 1080 back, but it's definitely not the standard across the industry.

 

Good luck and I hope that you get it sorted out.

Are you sure? Mine is super stable even with extreme settings.

Na. Those boards explode on their own. Even the high end MPOWER/XPOWER boards find ways to kill themselves let alone the Kraits.

Yeah, finding a good motherboard manufacturer these days is difficult. My original MSI X79-GD65 8D blew up, did windows update restarted and the VRM area of the board had blown caps and MOSFETs everywhere. Called MSI sent it off got a replacement and that replacement isn't 100% onboard SATA controller dies randomly about twice a week. (PCIe SATA controllers ftw) Been looking at buying an old X79 board but the prices are through the roof (£700 for an Asus X79 WTF?!).  Going to buy a generic intel board and put that platform in my home server and then my next build will be on the Ryzen platform. Either going to ASRock or Gigabyte next build.
