I am building a new-ish machine on an ASUS X99-A equipped w/ i7-5960X & 64 GB RAM. Both of the i7-990X systems have developed problems in the past couple of months. These are described in this forum, I think. That M/B, CPU, RAM, & Koolance 380i water block are all that I bought to get one box up to speed. Remember the beige cases? YUP! Still got 'em. This isn't going to be much of a build thread as I need to get this done ASAP. I do hope to be able to plug 2 Nvidia C2075s (or modded M2075s) + a more standard video card into this board. The CPU does have 40 PCI-E lanes and most will be needed for that configuration. I would love to have a couple of K40s, but they are still too pricey and I already have these older cards.
