I have decided to buy ASUS board and already ordered it from Computeruniverse.
The problems that I've heard of, involved older revision's compatibility issues with v4 ES chips (stepping 0). But since I own two v3 final stepping chips and the motherboard will probably be 1.04 which is the newest revision, there's no need to worry.
Another problem that concerned me was stability issues when BCLK is not 100 MHz. But it turned out that a friend who had this problem solved it simply by connecting EATX12V3 which he simply didn't notice at first
What method and ucode do you use to boost the clocks with the ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS and the 2696v3?
I used the taichi x99 to this date but I don't like it. (18 cores at 3.2Ghz)
The ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS is on the way (I only have 1x E5 2696v3 for now) that's why I'm asking and trying to save a lot of time because there are quite a few posts here to read...
